This tour was the highlight of our trip. It is a new business owner/operator Delton Rhoden is a wonderful tour guide we learned a lot about Jamaica and it's people from him. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. This tour takes you through some of the most awesome scenery jungle forest, waterfalls, mountain farms. Then we stopped at a farm at 4000 feet elevation and got a tour from a young man who farms the land. We had lunch at a coffee/cafe/bar. We saw Blue Mountain coffee growing and had the chance to watch it be roasted and ground by hand and were able to buy some at a great price. The ride back down was just as stunning and fun. We all enjoyed this tour the most out of all the things we did while in Jamaica. Most of the credit for this goes to the tour operator Delton who was such a pleasure to be with. If you want to see another side of Jamaica this tour is a must you will not be disappointed.
We were picked up on time from our Ochos Rios hotel. The drive took us along the northern coast of Jamaica. We drove by coconut, banana, and pineapple farms. We also drove past a bauxite mine. Our driver Harry told us a lot about local life in Jamaica and the people. Once you turn off the road to go up the mountain, be prepared to go on a long car ride on a narrow winding road. It is not for the faint of heart or for those who might get car sickness. Once we arrived, we were greeted by the owner who took us on a walk of the farm. They farmed coffee plus had plantains, bananas, and pigs. We were also fortunate to met his grandmother who was the third generation who worked on the farm. They treated us to a tasty lunch of local cuisine. We ended the tour by returning the way we came. If you are looking for a tour that gives you insight into the local people, this is the tour for you.
