Know More about this tour

Your professional and knowledgeable guide will meet you in the lobby of your Montego bay or Grand Palladium hotel. The first stop on this tour will be at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary in the hills of Anchovy for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The birds (about 15 different species) will be waiting eagerly for you to put out a finger for them to perch and to feed them nectar from a bottle. See many species of birds such as the Jamaican Oriole, The Doctor Bird (national bird of Jamaica), White Winged Dove, Finches, and more! Please note that these birds are not caged, they are wild birds that just come to the sanctuary during the day to feed. After about 1 hour with the birds, the bird keeper will take you on a short walk in the woods, pointing out various local trees and plants. You might just see a Barn Owl sleeping somewhere between the sticks! This is truly a nature lover's dream tour.

After the tour you will be taken to downtown Montego bay where you will visit historic sites starting at Sam Sharp Square. Next, you will visit the St James Parish Church which was built in 1775 and still fully functional. From there you will go to the Richmond Hill Great House which was built in 1804 and is situated on top of a hill in the center of town. From the house you get a full panoramic view of the entire city of Montego bay. If you want to go inside the Richmond Hill Great House simply purchase the USD$2.00 ticket and take the tour.

After visiting the Richmond Hill Great House you will be taken to the popular "Hip-Strip" for some shopping. After shopping, your bus will return you to your Montego Bay or Grand Palladium hotel.

    My husband and I enjoyed our tour and the bird sanctuary was fantastic and the highlight of our trip. Our driver was flexible with what we did and we appreciated that immensely.

    But the rest of the tour was problematic. It was good to see the real Montego Bay/ the view from the Richmond Inn is stunning and St. James was interesting. In retrospect- we should just have done Rocklands as we did not return to the resort until 2 PM...no stopping for lunch. Although ewe mentioned lunch to the guide (with caveats local food and SAFE) but he may not have taken us seriously OR traffic is so bad in "downtown" we may have been running late OR he just didn't know of a place that fit the requirements.

    If you love birds this will totally blow you away. I was moved to tears. You truly get to feed, while holding on a finger, sweet little hummingbirds. Not to mention all of the other birds and wildlife you get to experience as well. It was serene and absolutely magical.

    The Montego Bay highlights part of the tour was also fantastic. We got to see a middle-income neighbourhood, downtown, markets, historical sites, a church, and a historical hotel overlooking the entire city. It was truly incredible.

    We LOVED our driver/guide! Thank you!

    I was very excited to go on this tour as the Scissor-tail hummingbird is my favorite. The sanctuary was well maintained and the host was very nice and tried hard to get the birds to come to you. The only part I didn't like is there were rude people there and everytime a bird would come to my bottle the lady would put her bottle in front of me and scare the bird away. They were constantly talking and moving around and scaring the birds away. They spoke another language and maybe didn't know how to share. I don't know. But the host fellow was very informative and took us to the side and explained a lot of detail about the sanctuary and its surroundings. I would try this one again.
