It was an early start as we were staying in Negril but Crystal, our tour guide, and Steve, the driver, were fantastic. Crystal soon had the mini-bus laughing and yes mon-ing with her enthusiasm.
There was a quick stop for patties, Red Stripe and a chance to get waterproof shoes before arriving at Dunns River. The waterfall is simply spectacular and great fun to climb.
Afterwards we stopped for jerk chicken at an ocean-front restaurant before heading inland for Nine Miles. The scenery is stunning and Steve came into his own negoiating the narrow road up the mountain.
It was a privelege to visit the birthplace, and final resting place, of Bob Marley. Crazy though my mum prefers Curtis was a superb guide - funny, charming and well informed.
Highly recommend this tour, and company, if you are in Jamaica.
