Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Runaway Bay, Jamaica

This tour takes you through one of the most popular towns on the Island. Runaway Bay is naturally beautiful and is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica. It sits between the beautiful, crisp coastline to one side and the lush green mountains to the other. There is much debate as to how the town of Runaway Bay got its name. some people believe it got the name because that is where the last batch of Spanish soldiers ran away from when they were retreating from the attacking British Troops lead by Governor Ysassi right after the 1655 British invasion of Jamaica, while other argue that it was the point from which the Slaves from inland plantations used as an escape route to runaway to Cuba. Get your cameras ready to go as you make your way through this area.

Stop At: Columbus Park Museum, Jamaica

The town of Discovery Bay is where you will find Columbus Park. It was originally named Puerto Seco (Dry Harbour) by Christopher Columbus in 1494 when he and his men landed on the Island. It is said that could not find fresh water to drink. They later found fresh water in another area about 5 miles west of the town. The water was so good that they named the location where it was found Rio Bueno (Good River). However, the town of Puerto Seco was later renamed in 1947 to Discovery Bay because Discovery Bay is where the Spanish, lead by Christopher Columbus landed when they invaded the Island on May 4, 1494. There is a park with several old relics and artifacts on display. There will be a brief stop to take photos and capture the rich history of this historic town.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Blue Hole, Ocho Rios, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica

After the scenic drive you will head to Cool Blue Hole and Secret Falls just in time to meet your knowledgeable guide who will be your best friend for the next two hours until the end of the activity. Hidden on the border of Saint Ann and Saint Mary Parishes up in the mountains and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns is where you find this unspoiled, untouched rare gem. The Cool Blue Hole oasis offers an array of natural beauty and electrifying fun. Take in the gorgeous, bright blue water in the natural mineral pool surrounded by lush, tropical rain-forest. Have a blast jumping off the edge into the deep pool, swinging on Tarzan ropes or swimming up under the caves. Then, there will be a 5-minute hike through the woods to the amazing Secret Falls. You are in awe as you make your way through the magnificent, lush green vegetation up to the Secret Falls. There you can allow the cascading waters to hug you while you take amazing photo shots. Feel free to take lots of photos on this tour. Independent professional photographers are available to take photos at a cost however, if you prefer to take your own feel free to do so at your own risk.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Taj Mahal Shopping Center, Ocho Rios, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica

Shopping in Ocho Rios on this day trip will be at the Taj Mahal Shopping Center. A wide variety of items are available in this one area. Items includes rums, coffee, T-shirts, hats, jewelry, Harley D products, etc. however, since this is a private tour where you get to call the shots, you have the choice of requesting or have dialogue with your tour guide to take you to other shopping spots within that geographical location.
Lunch stop at Scotchies
Scotchies Outdoor Garden Restaurant is undoubtedly the best jerk chicken and pork spots you can find anywhere. We recommend that you cap off your days activities with a stop for the ultimate jerk experience at Scotchies. The food is prepared with the whole family in mind so even the children can take advantage of this amazing experience of tender juicy pork and succulent chicken with festival.

    We were asked to switch to the blue hole plus Dunns River falls as they did not have enough people for the original date we picked. My biggest issue with this trip is it was 13 hours in total instead of the advertised 8. Also they don't mention that the hike up and through the falls is actually pretty scary one wrong move and your done! I was terrified! The request for constant tips was also pretty annoying :(

    They cancel the trip because of weather conditions which is understandable but it didn’t rain at all yesterday. At least they was nice enough to refund half what I paid for. Will try again next visit

    Our tour guide was Omar, and he was absolutely amazing. He showed up on time, and had great conversation the whole ride to and from. My friends and I mentioned amongst ourselves that we were hungry, not even 10 minutes later Omar stopped us by a fruit stand. We went shopping at great places, where Omar helped my friends and understand the currency better. After our Blue Hole experience, which was amazing. Omar took us to a popular food bar, and it was the best food I’ve eaten in Jamaica. Anywhere we wanted to stop and take pictures Omar was more than happy to do so. He also took us to get our COVID test at a cheaper location, because the only ones us ladies could find were costly. Overall I enjoyed my day with Omar, please ask to book with him and you won’t regret it.

    This was a very great for us. The driver was on time and it cost us way less than what we would pay other companies. The blue hole was amazing and I would recommend doing this tour.

    What you see after a 3-4 hour drive from the Grand Palladium resort is a tiny pool and waterfall. I guess if you've never jumped into a pool of water from an edge or a rope swing you may find this fun. You have 45 minutes at the park and must stay with your guide. You also see small merchants at every corner. This tour was certainly not worth wasting an entire day driving 7 hours. Don't let anyone fool you, traffic is a constant. I was one of the early fans of Tripadvisor, but the information they mostly provide now is where they can earn a profit from a tour, resort, or hotel. The island has alot of beautiful areas to visit, however, that is not what you will learn from TripAdvisor anymore. Goodby Tripadvisor, your corporate strategy for earnings will be your doom, and for that I will not be sorry to see you go.

    This was the first time we booked our excursion from home through TripAdvisor. We would usually book our excursion at the resort. Let me start by saying I will always be booking from now on through TripAdvisor. We had a driver "Jeremy" pick us up on time at our resort. There was only us plus another couple in the vehicle. No other pick-ups at other resorts. Jeremy explain the history of the Island and show us things on the way. We arrived and Neal was our guide, our picture taker, etc. Neal did an awesome job with us. Thank you so much Neal for making this a great day. Once we were done at Blue Hole we went to Scotties for some real Jerk Chicken. Then we were off to a little shopping store. Would definite recommend this tour. No crowds, no line ups, no pick ups alone the way.

    This excursion was amazing love it had such a great time, way better then dunns river the driver was great so was the tour guide the jumps are awesome but you dont have to jump in if you dont want to. You will need to do a little hiking to get to the falls but it really isnt bad they have made some pretty clear walk ways
