Tour guide Lindsey was outstaying and mad our trip one to remember.
I booked with and was very pleased with our driver for the day, Jermaine. He was professional, friendly, and gave us lots of information about Jamaica as we drove to/from Ocho Rios. The Falls are gorgeous! I didn't like that they wanted us to hold hands as we traveled up the falls, as I felt that I needed to use my arms for balance, to help shift my weight as I moved up the rocks, and to catch myself when I slipped, which happened often. Besides being asked to hold hands as we moved up, I loved the beauty of the falls and the guides were friendly, funny and were open to taking pictures throughout our tour of my family. I also wish that we weren't so rushed to get to the top, as once we started, we didn't have many opportunities to stop and really look at how beautiful the surroundings were.
The lagoon tour was fun, as well. Our guide was funny and personable and explained how the lagoon glows in simple terms. I was surprised that only about half of the people in the boat got in the water to swim- my family did and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. My boys were a little scared about getting in the dark water, but our guide assured us that there wasn't anything dangerous in the water sharks/alligators and said that we should keep our feet up or expect to touch the mushy, muddy bottom, as the water is only about 4 ft deep where we get in. The water was warm and I never touched the bottom, but my husband and boys did and said that it was a weird sensation. My only complaint about this tour is that the professional photographer on board used his flash for every picture he took of my family in the water!! Of course, using the flash made our pictures come out looking as though we were in black water and none of the magical glow could be seen in any of our pictures- that was a disappointment, as we will most likely never be in water like this as a family again. I was really bummed about that. BUT, still loved the tour!!
Such a fun tour! It was nice that it started in the afternoon most Dunn's River Falls tours start in the morning so there's more people. The falls are great, and the luminous lagoon is seriously like the coolest place ever. A must-see when you're in Jamaica! This tour was the highlight of our trip!
