Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pick up at all hotels in Montego Bay, Lucea (Palladium) and trelawny

Following pickup in Negril, Montego Bay or at the Grand Palladium Resort in Lucea, board your comfortable vehicle for the trip to downtown Montego Bay. If you're picked up in Lucea or Negril, enjoy your relaxing ride down the scenic Jamaican coastline on the way into town. 

When you disembark in Montego Bay, follow your guide on a 1-hour sightseeing tour that takes you through the city highlights. Visit the St James Museum and Sam Sharpe Square, named after the slave who led the 19th-century Christmas Slave Rebellion. Walk through the neighborhood's blocks of impressive colonial buildings and learn about Jamaican history from your guide. Back on the bus, drive through some of the residential neighborhoods featuring stately Georgian homes funded with money from the island's once-thriving sugar trade. Stop by St James Parish Church, the home of stained glass pieces by English sculptor John Bacon. 

At the conclusion of your tour, spend about 45 minutes perusing Rainbow, a local shop selling local Jamaican goods like coffee, rum and jerk seasoning. Pop out to a local restaurant for dinner (own expense), before continuing on to Rose Hall.

Rose Hall Great House is known for the legend of the 'White Witch of Rose Hall', about a woman named Annie Palmer who killed her three husbands and several slave lovers before taking her own life. Follow your guide on a 1-hour tour through the graceful Georgian mansion, full of historical artifacts. 

Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Montego Bay, at the Grand Palladium and in Negril.

Walk around the square, admiring the statue of Sam Sharpe, the St James Museum and the surrounding colonial buildings.

Montego Bay City Tour & Rose Hall Haunted House

Jamaica 2019 Record locator RUXGUG $3609.65 Costco (flight/hotel/transport) $60 bag $392 excursions Food 15 15 Massage $440 Tip 2 5 40 5 5 My husband was pleasantly surprised to find out that our tour was in a private, well air conditioned van. It had just heavily rained so our pick up was 20 minutes late but our friendly tour guide Rolando made up for it. While traveling into the heart of Montego Bay during wet rush hour we felt safe with Rolando’s experienced driving. He answered any questions we had about the area, shared interesting facts, and gave us the freedom to choose whether or not we wanted to stop at some of the locations on the tour. We ended up stopping at the Sam Sharpe Square to look around, peeked at the St. James Parish Church from the van, went inside and around the Hard Rock Cafe, ending with the White Witch of Rose Hall Tour. We arrived 15 minutes late because of heavy traffic but Rolando made sure we joined a tour that had just started. It didn’t seem like we missed much since participants were only getting their photos taken outside the house. Overall the trip was a neat, safe way to see downtown Montego Bay. If you’re staying at a fancier resort be aware you’ll notice a stark contrast between a ritzy resort and downtown Montego Bay. The only reason I’m giving this tour 4 stars instead of 5 is because the photos on the site don’t really accurately depict what the downtown experience is like.

We were disappointed that the church was not availabe to visit. The Rose Hall tour was cool but there was to many people on the tour so it made it hot and hard to hear the tour guide

Remembering this tour just makes me want to laugh again. The city tour included a stop for shopping, Sam Sharpe Square, St. James Anglican Church built in 1775, and a visit to a local restaurant where real jerk chicken, pork and sausage was being prepared. Yum! Our guide, Tony, the president, was wonderful. The Rose Hall tour was fun and silly, but I have to admit they got me to jump about 6 feet. Well done and bravo!

Had a great time. Our diver, Howard, was very fun. He taught us Jamaican slang and took us to see some of the 'real Jaimaica' and introduced us to beef patties. The Rose Hall tour was very fun as well. The whole day was a little longer than we thought coming from Negril but Howard made it entertaining the whole way.

Picked up from hotel in Montego Bay...

Picked up from hotel in Montego Bay on time. Sightseeing tour of Mobay was good/an eye opener. The star of the show was definitely the Rose Hall Candlelight Tour though - very highly recommended. Sudden bangs and people jumping out etc - but all extremely funny at the same time/everyone screaming out but then laughing like kids. Only thing is that with everything going on, you don't tend to be listening to everything the tour guide says, so would love to go and see the house and hear about it on the daytime tour now as well.

It was more like a theatrical spook house. I would've prefer the historical aspects, not some actors who pop out from hiding places to try to frighten you. This tour was at night... in the dark. I would like to see it in the day time. No photos allowed.
