This tour was great! Lots of crocodiles in the black river, the YS falls was neat, although strange - you basically get a guide that takes you around the falls and takes all sorts of pictures of you on your own camera. I wasn't expecting a bikini photoshoot that day but some of the pictures were actually really nice and I'm glad we did it! You couldn't really maneuver the falls without the guides' help/ I think this is better than Dunn's falls because your group gets their own guide, where at Dunn's falls you have to hold hands with a bunch of strangers! Appleton estate was great - a tour of the grounds and factory and then a rum tasting - they basically left us in a room with a bunch of bottles of rum and there was no limit to the number of tastings you could have! The tour also included lunch and all-you-can-drink rum punch at Appleton's, it was delicious! All in all it was a great day and I would do it again!
This was a really great tour, but expect it to take up the whole day. We left the hotel at 8:30 am. After about an hour and a half ride, we arrived at the black river. This tour was really fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job getting the crocs to come out and swim to the boat. He even reached over and fed one and grabbed her leg. see pics
The Appleton Rum Factory tour was very informative. The lunch was delicious and the chicken was not spicy at all. At the end they provided all you want samples of 9 different varieties of their rum, which everyone seemed to really enjoy. It was about a 2 and a half hour drive back to the hotel, so I would say it was about 10 1/2 hours total, but well worth it.
This was an excellent excursion! It was quite the shuttle ride from Negril, but it was well worth it. I kept thinking that we didn't have enough time at the Black River and the YS Falls, but by the time you return to Negril, you are beat and it has been a full day. Our specific day lasted almost 11 hrs. The pictures and memories will be with us forever. This is a must see excursion if you want to see a wide variety of the culture Jamaica offers. Well done!
We really enjoyed this tour, it has a lot of variety and it was great value for money. Our tour guide, Ralph, was brilliant and answered lots of questions about Jamaican culture as we travelled to the first attraction. We really enjoyed the Black River boat tour. The guide was really knowledgable about the animals and plants which inhabit the area. YS falls is beautiful, we could only spend an hour there, which was enough time to check out the waterfall but you could happily spend an afternoon enjoying the different swimming pools. The Appleton Rum tour was really enjoyable and they are very generous with the free drinks which was a great way to end the tour!
This full day tour provided a great variety of experiences. The tour guide at Black River was extremely knowledgeable about the preserve and the animals and the boat ride was a great break from the beach. YS falls is gorgeous and with a picnic lunch you could easily spend half a day lounging and swimming in the falls, the cold pool and the warm pool. The tour guide at Appleton provided a great background into the history and process and their were great gifts to bring home from the shop.
Great Day. It is long though, bring a snack and water since the Appleton factory is last. There were only four of us booked that day, we had a great driver Scott and a super guideRalph who was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this as long as you can take lots of driving time.
Dispite the long bus ride all three places were fun and inviting! We went to YS Falls in the past and were happy that they did not have drought conditions! We loved the Black River tour along with the Appleton Rum Plant!
Amazing service from Ralph our tour guide and as an added bonus we got to hold a baby crocodile at the black river Safari tour! The unlimited rum samples ended the tour with a bang! Definitely worth the trip can't wait to return to Jamaica!
It was great. Not a lot of time at YS falls. Otherwiseit was amazing
This tour was great. We got to see the real jamaica. The ride was a bit long but the sightseeing was worth it. The lunch we got was amazing. I enjoyed the experience.

Excellent tour! Lots of fun. A must do for anyone visiting Jamaica.
Great experience!! The best tour we booked and the most for your money!! Tour guide and driver was amazing! Very highly recommended and will definitely take this one again!!
On time, good pace, plenty to photograph, informative and pleasant.
What a great tour! Lots of variety and informative guide. Could have spent more time at YS but would have to cut out something else and it was all too great to miss a thing.
Anita was a great guide to our small group. Roger at Black Safari did a very good job and it was a great experience. Our tour in my eyes though small had a more personable tour with extras. I would use the services again anywhere. #TexasTourist
This tour package was one of the highlights of our vacation. Highly recommend!
The tour itself was great! All the stops were fun and varied enough so you were not bored. Black River and YS Falls were both extremely picturesque, so make sure to have plenty of batteries for your camera. Appleton tour was extremely informative, even if you have been on similar tours before. I had been on brewery tours, but never liquor so I enjoyed it even more. The tour company used was a great choice as the guides were fun and entertaining. They even placed us with people our own age, making the trip enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice smattering a Jamaica culture all in one day. Warning...it will be a long day so prepare accordingly with snacks, plenty of sleep, etc.
This tour was absolutely amazing from start to end. The Black River tour was perfect! The stop at the YS falls was only an hour so it was a little difficult to get in the zip line ride that enticed us, but it was gorgeous. The Appleton rum tour was amazing, loved all the rums we tasted. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining; the bus driver, highly skilled! We did NOT forget to tip them. Thank you!!!
