At first we were slightly concerned because my wife and I the only two on the trip but our driver was fun and knowledgeable. Rose hall was SOOO much fun. They even had some actors dressed up and live acting some of the scenes. The lagoon is nothing short of breathtaking. Overall amazing!
Tony Montana our tour guide was the best. He took the great pride in his job and country. We had a blast! Definitely happy we booked this tour.
The house was fantastic we took the night tour .the guide was fantastic the actors and freights were brilliant .our best excursion .The lagoon was special we jumped in and the creatures lit up a very weird experience overall loved this tour .highly recommended.
We did the evening tour and when we arrived there were big groups of people arriving and we had a small wait. Our tour guide, Curley, was animated, funny and made the tour great. Not to give anything away but I was spooked a couple times but good for families with teenage children or older. I would recommend this to friends and family
Our driver Michael was fantastic...very friendly and accommodating. As there were only four of us on the tour, he customized it to our needs and gave us the time we required at each location. Favorite part of the tour was the Luminous Lagoon!
Our tour guide Tony was very knowledgeable and witty. He made sure all the tourist had a wonderful, and exciting time, the van was very neat and clean, and comfortable.....thank you.
My wife and myself had a really great time on this trip ,the fact that it was a private tour made it better and our driver Sydney yes that is the correct spelling was both very informative and funny
We had the tour of mo'bay first then on to the lagoon this was amazing you have to see it to believe it.
On to the great house and white witch,the staff involved have worked well to create this,it is a interactive tour so expect the unexpected,overall agreat tour..
Amazing tour, great value. Luminous lagoon was breathtaking. Rose Hall was fantastic fun, the staff put so much effort in to making the experience very enjoyable. Definitely worth going.
We had a great time on this tour! Our driver arrived at our resort right on time and we shared a shuttle bus with a family of 4. Our guide had a great sense of humor and ensured that everyone was having a good time. He started by driving us through the hills of Montego Bay to see the wealthier side of the city, and then we drove to a gift shop. The shopping experience for me was the worst part of the trip. The gift shop was huge, but it was basically all of the same items that you'll see in every other shop on the island, but with marked up prices and there was an added 15 in tax at the end which I didn't pay anywhere else. Fortunately, the shopping part was only 30 minutes because they basically only let you go in 1 store. The driver then took us over to the bay where we had a complimentary rum punch and then took a short boat ride to the Lagoon. The glowing water was amazing, but I'd suggest bringing a bag with some water shoes and a towel if you plan to swim the ground is very murky. After drying off, we drove over to the Rose Hall Great House. By this point it was getting late and was very dark. One thing we did not know was that on top of the natural creepiness of the place, they actually have actors dressed as ghosts there to scare you. There was a small child on our tour who was terrified, so this is one thing that might have been good to know. Personally, I love haunted places and I thought this tour was actually the best part of our excursion. All in all, we had a great time and it was fun to get away from the hotel and see Jamaica.
I thought it was going to be a larger tour but to my surprise it was a private tour we had a wonderful tour guide named Junior that made the whole experience that much greater!
The driver showed up timely and gave us a very good city tour, including a stop at the local school, a drive through residential areas, and a stop to try sugar cane. Glistening Waters was nothing short of beautiful. Rose Hall was impressive but cheesy presentation. Overall, well worth the cost.
The tour was great. My friend and I happened to be the only ones to book this tour that day so it was a private tour no complaints!. The driver was local to the area and gave us a lot of information about what we were seeing. Montego Bay was very interesting to drive around and we stopped at a lovely old church to have a look. Next we went to Luminous Lagoon - so amazing, I would go back in a heartbeat. Take your water shoes, the bottom is silty and feels like you are standing in peanut butter. Our last stop was Rose Hall. At night the guides at Rose Hall do a spook tour, which we were unaware of and could have done without. Rose Hall is beautiful and I would have preferred to learn more about the history without the actors and dim lighting.
In all, going to the three places made for a busy day but it was a lot of fun.
Side note: Get water shoes or bring old runners if you are doing excursions. On a different tour, our bus stopped at a shop on the way to Dunn's River Falls so we could get water shoes not expensive and we ended up using them the whole trip.
We totally enjoyed the Rose Hall Tour. It was extremely well done, and we would do it again should we return to Montego Bay. As for the Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise, it was not really that good and not worth the money. The Rose Hall part of this tour is the only thing worth doing and I am rating that a 4 Star
Tour was a pleasant surprise. Had a nice private tour with Tony Montana in an air conditioned van with my familly of four. Tony kept us amused along the way and gave us a tour of the town before heading to our excursion.
He took us to a souvenir shop where I took one look at the prices and decided I was not going to spend any of my money there. It is cheaper to shop at the Rose Hall village.
We also stopped at the pork pitt and enjoyed some delicious jerk chicken.
I had my doubts about booking the Rose Hall tour because of the frightening reviews. It was spooky, but enterntaining and eduational. We went with our 2 teenagers, age 15 and 18 who also enjoyed the tour.
The luminous lagoon is pretty amazing. The boys went for a swim. You aren't allowed to take pictures with flash, but there is someone on board who will take a mediocre picture of you in the water for an outrageous price.
Overall, we enjoyed the excursion and would recommend it.
I really enjoyed the tour after being nearly scared to death at the Rose Hall. Great fun though. The luminous waters were very interesting.
Our Driver "Junior" was Excellent! He was very friendly and knew so much about everything and so polite! He took us down town MoBay and showed us around Sam Sharpe Square, as well as visited the Montego Bay Civic Centre currently housing the Museum of St. James, an art gallery and a theatre. The museum traces the history of St James parish, from the Arawak era to the present day. Exhibitions and shows are hosted by the museum and theatre respectively, ask at the museum for details of upcoming features.
After that we headed in the evening to Rose Hall for the haunted tour. It was fun but very very humid. The tour guide gave a very detailed history of the house and owners and as well some staff acted out parts as she talked.
We then headed to go on the Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise. We were the only ones on it as we go there a bit late. Very erie to be out there but after seeing how the trail of the boat was lit up I jumped in to experience it 1st hand. It worked! When I 1st jumped in it was very cold but as the captain of the boat kept saying "swim swim" I did and could feel the warm water come up as I moved around and it light up like a Christmas tree!
All in all it was a great tour and would recommend it to anyone. ^5 to Junior for being such a great driver/tour guide. Thank you!
The guide was late, we did not see the museum at all or get an explanation. We were at Sharpe Square for not even 5 minutes, but we had to go to a friend of his jerk shop. The lagoon was worth seeing, but the boat was so over loaded not everyone could see the water as we went back into shore. Rose Hall was interesting. Would not recommend this tour guide again.
Spoiler warning - don't read on if you want to be surprised.
It's a beautiful house and grounds, but the tour itself was cheesy. I couldn't help but snicker at a few of the contrived scenes although one or two did achieve its purpose to creep you out. Mostly, the tour participants do all the work themselves to scare the bejeezus out of themselves.
As for the Luminous Lagoon, the lights that are stirred up are pretty, but it is worth going on only if you plan on getting into the water and getting wet. I did not and ended up having to deal with wet folks and seating, so it was not really pleasant.
Tour was great but driver drove insanely. .I was literally scared for my life..I love adrenaline but that drive.....
The customer service in booking this trip was awesome. We ended up with our own driver and a car for just the two of us which was really nice. The guide was very friendly. The shopping trip I would skip if I had to do it again as it was just more touristy stuff that I did not want to buy. The tour of Rose Hall was great, however I thought that it was supposed to be by candlelight and it was not - this could have been my error though so my rating is not based on this. The Lagoon was fun but I would not suggest going after a couple of days of rain as it affects the luminosity.
