  • 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.

  • I am a big fan of the show Ghost Adventures, which is where I originally heard of Rose Hall and was the reason I wanted to come here and see it all in person. I was really looking forward to history and ambiance of the Great House.

    What they don't tell you abut this tour is that they have turned this historical landmark into a haunted house, much like you might find during Halloween. The entire tour, although very factual and thrilling, you have people jumping out and scaring you.

    The constant scaring took away from my ability to enjoy being at Rose Hall and listening to the tour guide about the history as I was to worried about the next scare.

    So, in the end, this was a very neat place to visit, but I down graded the tour because they turned it into a haunted house atttraction.

  • We had a great time at Rose Hall.. it was informative and very entertaining.. make sure you go in the evening for the full effect/experience .. Driving around Montego Bay was interesting to see.. The Luminous Lagoon night cruise was a great photo opportunity.. and the tour is fast.. so you don't need to worry.. Our driver was a good guy .. funny and easy going... If I had any recommendations.. I'd say , It should have started later in the day.. because we had to kill a lot of time in Montego Bay for the sun to set and create the necessary darkness for Rose Hall and the Lagoon..

  • The luminous lagoon and Rose Hall parts were great, but we DID NOT get the promised tour of Montego Bay. Our tour guide hardly spoke at all and we spent forever at the Rainbow store because he wanted to avoid traffic. I was disappointed.

  • From start to finish it and #39;s was a perfect evening. Our guide Leo was on time, clean , polite and well informed. He let us ask questions and helped us navigate every stop! So important when you are traveling. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy and learn on the tour. Thank you Leo

  • This tour was not a good experience for myself and the other two people booked for the trip. The service was late for pickup at the resort due to mechanical problems with the van. Another driver picked us up and then connected with the new driver on the side of a busy road. We exited the van and then got in another van. The first part of the tour consisted of a drive through Montego Bay with no commentary. When we asked questions, the driver did not know the answers.We then proceeded to the next stop which should have been Rose Hall, but since we were early, he stopped at 2 places to kill time. Neither were shopper or tourist friendly. We got to Rose Hall and it was over booked. They asked if people would either come back or wait for the next tour. Since no one did, the tour was crowded and loud. After that we went to Luminous Lagoon, which was great. On the way back to the resort, the driver talked on the phone and drove at an excessive speed. We would have been better off booking a trip at the resort. I have been on other trips booked with Viator and had no problems. This was not the case with this trip.

  • Our tour guide Orlando was AMAZING! He was very welcoming, warm and had a vast knowledge of the island and the history. I found the luminous lagoon boring but thoroughly enjoyed the Rosehill and Montego Bay highlights tour.

  • This tour was amazing!
