  • Very informative and fun. Our guide and driver Dylan, picked us us right on time. Which never happens in Jamacia The tour of Montego Bay was great and then on to Rose Hall which was fun. You can go to a cool bar in basement of the plantation. The luminous lagoon was close by and is a must see. The 25 for photos is a bit excessive but as we had the boat to ourselves we didnt mind. Recommend this tour highly.

  • Extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Tony, took us to see the sights of Montego Bay, including shopping and a stop at Scotchies.
    Enjoyed the Rose Hall tour, then to Falmouth for luminous lagoon. Again, very knowledgeable guide to explain the luminous concept. Certainly worth seeing on your Jamaica trip.

  • The tour lasted almost 6 hours due to traffic and pick up/drop off of passengers. We attempted to drive around Montego Bay during rush hour. The visit to Rose Hall Tour was too long and more focused on zombies jumping out at us than actually giving us the history of the family or the house. Had we known that there would not be time for even getting a snack, we would have eaten before we were picked up at 4:30 p.m.

  • The Rose Hall Tour and Luminous Lagoon Tours were amazing. The only small disappointing thing was it was in the dark, and it would have been nice to see the scenery there and back. Next time we will arrange another tour to see what we missed.

  • Overall quite enjoyable. Driver was not very enthusiastic or informative during tour. Trip through Montego Bay was quick and not very informative. We went up and down three or four streets before going to a touristy souvenir shop to constitute the Montego Bay tour. Would've preferred more time in city. Rose Hall was very interesting. Arrived too early, so we had about 30 minutes before tour started however, the mansion was very unique. The Luminous Lagoon was very cool, too, though I wish I would've brought a swimsuit to get into the water.

  • Everything was nice other than we arrive early for the Rose Hall Tour and had to wait and we arrived late for the Luminous Lagoon. The Rose Hall is a must do while in Jamaica. Nevada was a great tour guide.

  • The content of this tour is very worthwhile the mechanics needs some restructuring. We were told to be in the lobby of our Montego Bay hotel at 4:30 pickup worked well. The tour was supposed to be broken down into 3 parts: a tour of historic Montego Bay with time for dinner, a ghost tour of Rose Hall, finishing with a trip into the Luminous Lagoon. By the time we retrieved the last members of the tour and headed into Montego Bay, it was 6-6:30, there was no time for dinner, the city was congested with traffic and it felt like a total waste of time. Some people hadn't eaten since 12:30pick up in Negril we hadn't eaten since 2:30. Had we known, we would have made different preparations and brought food with us. The ghost tours start on the hour so then we drive towards Rose Hall, another 20 minutes in the other direction. This is where the tour starts to get good: Rose Hall at night, is great! The crew has staged it very well and made it informative, fun and a bit scary. The Luminous Bay is a don't miss we did not swim and it was still fascinating and beautiful. We finally arrived back at our hotel at 10:30 and of course the buffet was closed. I would do it again but would love for the tour creators to rethink the pickup schedule and timing.

  • Rose hall was lovely but the ghost tour part is a little silly. The Luminous Lagoon night cruise isn't awesome, but the luminous lagoon is worth seeing. We jumped in and got to see the particles light up around us so that was pretty cool.

  • This tour was hit or miss for me. We signed up for the Rose Hall night tour, but the hall was closed for a private event the night of our tour, so the order got switched around and we did Rose Hall during the day. Rose hall was fine, but our guide at the hall was unenthusiastic. I can't blame her because they wear period clothing and it was over 90 degrees F that day, but still.
    The Montego Bay highlights was neat. We were going through downtown when school was letting out, and got a nice view of city life in hectic downtown MoBay. We stopped for lunch at Scotchies for the best jerk chicken I had on the island. The stop at the St. James Parish Church was strange we just walked around the church without any guidance and I felt like I was intruding. We got some drinks at a rooftop bar overlooking the airport and surrounding lands, which was very neat.
    The gem of the entire day was the Luminous Lagoon. Words fail me to describe how breathtaking it was. It was a magical experience, to see the water light up around you. I highly recommend swimming in the luminous lagoon. If you have some leeway in your travel dates, try and go near the new moon, so you can really experience the glow in the darkness.

  • The tours of Montego Bay and Rose Hall were fine. Rose Hall was quite interesting. Not as good as we thought it was going to be. The Luminous Lagoon Cruise was rather disappointing. Due to the heavy rain the water temperature had lowered. So the algae wasn't that luminous. However the guides were 100 brilliant. Information given was interesting, and they were very funny.
