Know More about this tour

Your afternoon and evening tour begins with hotel pickup in Negril, the Grand Palladium resort in Lucea or Montego Bay (depending on option selected); if you’re picked up in Negril or at Grand Palladium, enjoy the drive along Jamaica’s beautiful northern coast to Montego Bay.

When you arrive in Mobay, as it’s commonly called by the locals, get to know the city on a one-hour sightseeing tour to attractions like Sam Sharpe Square, named after a slave leader who led the revolt known as the Christmas Slave Rebellion in 1831. Walk around the square, admiring the statue of Sam Sharpe, the St James Museum and the surrounding colonial buildings.

Then check out St James Parish Church, one of Jamaica's finest churches with its stained glass and sculptures by English artist John Bacon, and take a drive through residential areas to marvel at the Georgian homes that date back to the glorious sugar-trading days.

Continue to a local shop called Rainbow, where you have the chance to browse island goods like cigars, rum, coffee and bottles of Jamaica’s famous jerk seasoning. Take time to pick up some souvenirs and gifts. You have 45 minutes of free time here for shopping and eating.

Next, the second portion of your combo begins with the 15-minute drive to Rose Hall Great House, an 18th-century Georgian mansion made famous by the legend of Annie Palmer, the ‘White Witch of Rose Hall.’ According to the tale, Annie killed her three husbands and several slave lovers before being killed herself in her bed. During your one-hour candlelit tour through the mansion, listen to the story and find out for yourself if Annie truly haunts the house, which also boasts period furnishings for you to admire.

Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Montego Bay, at the Grand Palladium and in Negril.

  • Another great Viator experience! Tour guide was great from beginning until the end! The time spent at Rose Hall was very interesting and fun. I truly enjoyed this!

  • We were disappointed that the church was not availabe to visit. The Rose Hall tour was cool but there was to many people on the tour so it made it hot and hard to hear the tour guide

  • Remembering this tour just makes me want to laugh again. The city tour included a stop for shopping, Sam Sharpe Square, St. James Anglican Church built in 1775, and a visit to a local restaurant where real jerk chicken, pork and sausage was being prepared. Yum! Our guide, Tony, the president, was wonderful. The Rose Hall tour was fun and silly, but I have to admit they got me to jump about 6 feet. Well done and bravo!

  • Had a great time. Our diver, Howard, was very fun. He taught us Jamaican slang and took us to see some of the 'real Jaimaica' and introduced us to beef patties. The Rose Hall tour was very fun as well. The whole day was a little longer than we thought coming from Negril but Howard made it entertaining the whole way.

  • Picked up from hotel in Montego Bay on time. Sightseeing tour of Mobay was good/an eye opener. The star of the show was definitely the Rose Hall Candlelight Tour though - very highly recommended. Sudden bangs and people jumping out etc - but all extremely funny at the same time/everyone screaming out but then laughing like kids. Only thing is that with everything going on, you don't tend to be listening to everything the tour guide says, so would love to go and see the house and hear about it on the daytime tour now as well.

  • It was more like a theatrical spook house. I would've prefer the historical aspects, not some actors who pop out from hiding places to try to frighten you. This tour was at night... in the dark. I would like to see it in the day time. No photos allowed.
