This adventure was one of the highlights of our trip. The Falls are beautiful although challenging and the ride there is filled with beautiful scenery and in a great travel bus. We enjoyed the shopping and a chance to purchase local made souvenirs and have a true Jamaican lunch. But, the real highlight of the day, for us, was the opportunity to spend the day with the Captain and Carol and if you're lucky enough to get to meet these 2 and spend your time with them, you will be blessed in surprising ways!
We chose the JTL Dunn's River Falls/Ocho Rios Shopping tour we reserved thru Viator. Picked up at the hotel in a nice van which held about 20. Carol was an exceptional guide. She provided local color and details regarding the agriculture and culture of the island during the 1 hour ride from Iberostar to Ocho Rios. Only about an hour stop in Ocho Rios. Do take a stroll beyond the 2 block street of stores where the van is parked. Additional shopping and touring near the cruise ships.
Dunn's river falls seemed a little over 100 yards long are not extremely challenging but it is an accomplishment and a memory. The guides are professional and extremely helpful in aiding those who need it and identifying the fun spots for pics and where to get really wet.
Can be a little busy with different groups mingling as they work at different speeds ascending the falls. We went on Monday and found we had only 1 other group mixing in our climb. They seem to stage the groups well. Other commentators discussing crowds may have been climbing during a 'cruise ship' day.
Tour and tour guides were great. They were very informative and friendly. Climbing the falls was so much fun and a must do if you visit Jamaica
This adventure was amazing. The tour guides were fun, interactive, very high energy. The place is amazing. I highly recommend it!!!!
This was the best time we had. Guides were fun and interactive and made it a wow derail experience. Driver and tour guide were very good!
We absolutely enjoyed the walk up the falls..it's an experience hat we would love to do again!
This tour was amazing, Great people, and loads of fun. You are guaranteed to get soaked.
Joe, our driver, was the very best of this trip! Knowledgeable, fun and friendly guy always eager to help out including negotiating if needed. The Dunn's River Fall was our favorite part of the trip. They charge $40 for the CD video of your adventure, but after watching I don't think it was worth it. Shopping was a blast! I recommend this trip and I highly recommend asking for Joe as your driver!
I loved every part of this tour, from the amazing tour guide and driver, to actually climbing Dunns River Falls, then regrouping with an afternoon lunch stop at the Ocho Rios Jerk Center, and finishing off the day with some enjoyable shopping!
Plan on getting wet, wet, wet! Ladies, wear your hair in an appropriate style.
I offered this tour as a gift to my parents and the smiles and happiness they displayed in the pictures they shared with me pretty much summed up how much they enjoyed Dunns River Falls. I have been there myself and loved it too. If you are heading to Montego Bay/Ocho Rios... This tour is a must!!!!
Dunns River was amazing! Definitely worth the trip. We opted for the full day trip which included shopping in Ocho Rios. We were able to purchase most all of our souvenirs here, including rum, for prices lower than most of the places that we had been. We also received discounts because of the tour.
This was great. We took a bus ride to Ocho Rios and received a great detail of information about Jamaican history, economy, and current events from our Jamaica Tours Limited Guide named Nicola. At Dunns River Falls, we were placed with a group and a guide helped us up the falls. The climb was very enjoyable. We made a stop in a town center for lunch and shopping.
The tour was exceptionally well organized! From the driver, the tour guide, to even the staff at the Dunn's Riverfall park, everyone were very courteous and professional. I enjoyed every moment!!
This was my second time visiting Dunns River Falls. The bus ride was extremely comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Of course, the falls was and still is breathtaking. I would recommend Viator to anyone going to Montego Bay. The tour operator provided excellent service. The price of the tour was the cheapest around as well.
This was a great half-day family adventure. I forgot to call 48 hours in advance to reconfirm and discovered this 30 minutes before pick-up. The travel company was great and still got us on the bus for the trip. Much appreciated.
The drive to Dunns River Falls was enjoyable and allowed us to see a lot of Jamaica and the tour guide was informative and fun along the way. You will see native Jamaica away from the resorts, which helped us appreciate the island even more.
The Falls was exciting and beautiful. We have three kids, ages 11, 9, and 7 and they all thought it was great. Be sure to bring a waterproof camera as there are lots of photo ops.
LOVED IT!!!! Went with friends in 1978 and it was a lot of fun. Wanted to my husband to experience it and he really had a great time. I would highly recommend it.
It was a great experience dealing with professional guide tour leaders.
This was a fun tour. The day was long as the trip to the falls from our resort was far. However on this day we were lucky there was few stops for other clients. The walk up the falls was fun and you could bail at any time if you couldn't complete the trip. You leave all your money on the bus so it is impossible to shop in the craft market as it is inside the gates and your arm band is cut off you when you leave making it not possible to go back in. The shopping consisted of one store in a gated complex however you felt at ease and their prices were very competitive. Some on our tour didn't know they had to wear swim wear so they were soaked without any change of clothing. Definitely one to recommend.
This was so much fun. Make sure to take your water shoes. If you don't you can rent them for $7.00. I would also recommend taking your own waterproof camera. They have a guide filming your entire climb with your group, but the DVD is $40. A bit much that has a bunch of people in it that you may not know in your group. I took my own camera.
