Know More about this tour

After pickup from your Ocho rios hotel, travel by comfortable air-conditioned coach along scenic country roads on your way to the Black River. At the river, board your boat and look for native wildlife, including more than 100 species of birds, a variety of fish and the ever-entrancing crocodiles. As you glide downriver, your knowledgeable guide shares interesting facts about the flora and fauna that flourishes along the Black River, one of Jamaicas longest waterways.

After the cruise, relax and enjoy a traditional Jamaican lunch. Once you have finished your tasty meal, head to the lovely wilderness park at YS Falls. Have time to splash around in the cool waters, take a short walk along the river, or simply kick back on the banks while taking in the natural beauty of the 7-tiered cascading waterfall and its surroundings.

Refreshed by your dip at YS Falls, continue your journey to the days final destination, the Appleton Estate Rum Factory. Your informative guide takes you around the beautiful property and shows you the rum-making process, from harvesting the sugar cane to aging the liquor in oak barrels. Learn about time-honored methods used to extract the juice from sugar cane and see historic artifacts from the estate. Then taste the results with a rum sampling at the end of the tour! If youd like to take a bottle home, you can shop at the estates tasting room.

When you wrap up at the rum factory, relax back on board your coach as you are returned to your hotel in the evening to end your tour.

    If you're travelling from Ocho rios don't bother!! It was a 14 hour day with a pick up at 6:20.No time for breakfast and none offered. The places themselves were great. YS falls was beautiful but only had 45 mins there. Always being herded like sheep. No time to explore. The driver was dangerous.

    The tour was spectacular. The tour guide was the best! I learned so much about Jamaica from him. I would definitely recommend this tour package.
