    Horrible, horrible tour. Basically the driver shows you an upper class neighborhood, lower class neighborhood . Tour is advertised as being 5 hrs, well our tour lasted exactly 2:12 minutes . I felt like it's a total setup. Driver stopped 2 times, first time in downtown and handed us off to 2 men who gave you a little slave history. Problem was, both men expected money and would not take no for an answer. Next stop was Church around the corner. Same thing, they expected more money. Coming out the church another man selling items is positioned at the van. Tour is sold as being able to request things you want to see. Did not happen, driver was so busy doing personal errands. Didn't stop in Margaretville at all, drove thru. Simply don't waste your money on this tour.SabrinaDallas, Tx

    This was a great tour, if you want to learn about the heritage and customs, as well as see some very scenic routes, then go on this tour! The tour guide even helped me safely exchange cash and find some good food after the tour.

    Enjoyed my tour especially when I found out that we had a private van and a knowledgeable guide name Marlan Kennedy. He took us to all the popular landmarks and into the country to see all the fruit tree and took us to a farm. He also took us to Scotchies, the best place o eat jerk chicken.

    This trip was very informative and very interesting. Primarily due to our driver Lindsay.
    He went out of his way to show us things and teach us about the island people and their customs.
    He made the trip very enjoyable !

    When we contacted the local operator we were told no other booking for our chosen day and wanted to see if we were flexible to move to a different day. It turned out there is no change. The tour has only 3 people. Pick up was late and really nothing much to see in this tour. We were brought to see government assist housing areas, Rose Hall parking lot, no visit to mentioned villages, farming areas. There was no stopping for fresh coconut water and organic, local fruits. We were stopped at street plaza with souvenir stores and a local supermarket. Then, we stopped at another so call shopping mall across the road. Driver told us she was going to get gas and would be back in 20 minutes. She was late again for 20 minutes. I have looked at the gas meter and don't think she has filled up any gas at all. In additional, she was talking on the phone for so many times during the trip. Absolutely disappointed. This tour should be removed.
