We had a great guide. She talked to us the whole time and kept us entertained. We enjoyed all the stops for spices, shopping, and jerk chicken!

The falls guides made sure we were safe, as this was a rushing-water experience. glad we did it! We gave our guide $10 since he was so careful, even though he could do the falls barefoot! It stretched our comfort zone but I would do it again. Then Darryl took us around the area in his van and masterfully drove nar---row roads without an accident! Can't forget our tour guide who loved Jamaica so - Alicia was very knowledgeable. The one thing hard about this tour was FINDING IT! We almost lucked onto finding Alicia; it wasn't well marked, or else we were blind.

Very wonderful experience. Dunns River Falls is a must. Climbing up the falls and seeing all of the beautiful foliage was an experience everyone must do. The guides at the falls were very helpful and took a genuine approach to everyone's safety and well being while climbing the falls. After the falls, the sightseeing was great as well. We had our own personal tour guide so everything was laid back and we were able to take it all in without being in a rush to get back to our cruise ship. Radcliff was wonderful in taking us on a fabulous tour and showing us things off the beaten path. Thank you for such an enjoyable time while in Jamaica.

This was a good overall variety of Ocho Rios and the Falls
Dunns river was good but extremely busy.guide was excellent n brought us to several different other places. Nice but ate lunch at 4pm, we were starving by then.

The Falls were a blast!
This was the best excursion I had while cruising. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We had a lot of fun. Will do it again in the future.
Great value. Dunns falls was a worthwhile trip
I was a little fearful at first about the Dunns Falls, but the guides made it a fun and exciting climb. Truly a must do. The highlight tour was made wonderful by our guide as well. We love Jamaica and no tour has ever been bad.
This is quite challenging, but the guides are very helpful.

This is an experience we will never forget!!! Everyone in our family enjoyed it, from 6 years old to 47 years old. Though the falls were very crowded the day we went it was still an awesome climb to the top. Take your own camera!!! The guides will hold it and take pictures at each stop or wrap it in a plastic bag. They try an sell you on the video which is nice, but for 45.00 all you get is very close up images of your group and not the falls themselves. ALSO BEWARE---LOTS of tips needed!!! We were not prepared for all the tips. First you have two guides who pick you up at the ship, then they pass you off to two different tour guides at the falls (all wanting tips). Then when we went on the Highlights tour we had a different guide (another tip) and then each stop we made they too expected a tip. Though Denise the Spice men is very nice and we loved the experience of seeing all his spices. You can buy the spices or give a tip. Then when they take you to the pottery shop they too expect a tip! We really did love the personal guide and seeing the true Highlights of the area, we just did not expect all the different people we had to tip. All in all it is an awesome experience!!!!! Tour says it is only 3 hours long, we did not get back to the ship until 3:30 for the 4:00 departure.

You are able to choose the climbing path throughout the falls. Easier or more challenging. You would be able to do this several times. It would never be the same even when repeated!
Our tour guides made this trip amazing! They took us away from the tourist areas and showed us what the real Jamaica was all about. We got real fresh spices, true Jamaican Jerk Chicken, got to talk with the locals; all while our guides kept an eye on us and the time. Everything was perfect. Climbing Dunns Falls was amazing! Wouldn't change a thing!

Had a great time at the falls.It was very thrilling climbing the rushing water feeling your way up the the steep incline.Would recommend if you have small children to put on life jackets and for everyone to wear sneakers ,the rocks are very slippery.And also if you have any elderly family with you to help them along with you. Between the rushing water and slippery rocks accidents can happen and probably will!!!
This was so much fun. Climbing the falls and then being escorted to Spice Mountain and meeting Dennis. Tasting fresh sugar cane and spices. Fantastic.
