It was fun! The video dvd wasn’t worth the money. Bring a waterproof case and try getting your own pics. It’s hard unless you want to lose the group Bc we hold hands the entire time and there are so many other groups chained together hiking the waterfall. But it was a great experience.

Our tour guide, Denise, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and so funny. Best tour guide we know. This was an awesome excursion!
We sincerely enjoyed our excursion. The guide was great and there was plenty of fun climbing the falls. I highly recommend it!
Amazing excursion! Myself and 2 teenage sons went on this excursion and it was tops on our list. The guides were great and added extra fun to the already amazing climb. We slid down a small fall, Fell backwards into a pool of water and stood under another fall where the water went around you. At the end you wanted to tip them they made it so memorable. $40 video which I love watching, better than just still photos. Also enjoyed the caves. The guide was very informative and made it fun. Unlike in the states where you have to stay on the paths we were able and encouraged to explore. Loved the Green Grotto Caves. I would definitely recommend this excursion!

Fun family time. Fairly long ride from where we were staying though. Did not enjoy the drop-off in the shopping district on the way back - but overall I would recommend it.
This is a must do. We loved it.

I recently took a cruise to Jamaica and choose to visit the Dunns River Falls Once I located the tour operator, the rest of the trip was great. The tour operator was friendly, professional and well informed. They provided a safe transfer and give very good descriptions of the sights along the way. Everything was done in a timely fashion and included a stop for a restroom break and the opportunity to purchase refreshments. All and all. the service was excellent.

Amazing experience going up the falls. Thankfully, we had water shoes. Be sure to wear your bathing suite. After the adventure, a woman in the group said, "You can't do this in Western countries. Too dangerous!" I agree. We in the U.S. would take much more safety precautions - but it wouldn't be that much fun!
Rad and Sassy were great tour guides. They were very informative and free to answer any questions. They made us feel like welcome guests to their country.
Too many groups were booked at same time. Climbed the falls without the guide.
Reviewer: John Kulikowski
It was a nice and refreshing experience. We were glad to have the support and help from our fellow climbers.

About 10 of us in a small group minivan/bus - although was not booked as a private tour, ended up as one - at a lower cost than the cruiselines. Did not have to wait with the masses at the entrance of Dunns river falls.Enjoyable, tour guide was very good.
Reviewer: Gary Blandino
While Dunns River was crowded due to its popularity, the Shore Excursion tour guide had us well prepared to enjoy our journey. He helped locate an experienced, friendly guide to take us up the falls and prepped us with information prior to insure no monies were lost after. The tour guide was friendly and filled the time between the port to the falls with a lot of local detail and historical facts on the area.
Reviewer: Lisa Schuren
This was such a fun excursion. I highly recommend it.
This was a great adventure especially for our 2 teenage boys. Tour guide and bus driver were very friendly and informative. Bus was clean and very comfortable. The falls are a busy destination but a great experience.
Wonderful experience, my kids had so much fun.
Best excursion and the guide was ex. A must do if you are there

Denise was a very informative and friendly guide.We really enjoyed the trip to the falls and the climb.
Reviewer: Richard Brady
The tour group was easy to find with all of the helpful people at the port facility. The bus driver and guide were polite, friendly, and informative. The activity at the Falls was very enjoyable. I would recommend this tour company.
Reviewer: Stephanie Bohannon
We had a great time with Yardie Tours. It was nice doing the Falls with a smaller group. Our tour guide made sure we were taken care of and they were very accommodating for any unplanned stops along the way. We like to soak in as much as we can. I would definitely recommend this excursion
Reviewer: RACHEL KORENVASSER
very good tour. she (forget her name) make us love JAMAIKA.
This was a great excursion. There was a tent set up on the parking lot to meet up. We were taking a small passenger van to the falls. The guide in the van told us all about Jamaica. When we arrive at the falls, they got us through the lines very quickly and we met our guide for the falls. The guide was great. High energy and helped everyone climb the falls. There was even a 75 year old couple that he help finish the climb. Highly recommend this excursion
Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Reviewer: Karen Edwards
We had a blast at Dunns river Falls. The guides were awesome and very careful as we climbed up. Alicia (?) was a great tour guide in the van and pointed out several interesting Jamaican sights.
Reviewer: Francia Lubell
This was a great excursion. It just went to the falls and that is what we wanted - no other places or shopping - just the falls. This was perfect. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
Reviewer: Sylvia Uy
Clients really enjoyed this excursion. Highly recommend it.
Reviewer: Susan Hutchens
We had climbed the falls about 12 years ago when our sons were in their early teens. The second time around did not disappoint - we had a blast! The tour guide was really organized and told us exactly what to expect, where to meet, etc. I highly recommend this ShoreEx excursion - the falls are beautiful, very cold and refreshing, and something fun and unusual.
Reviewer: Judy White
Very informative guide on the way to the falls and the guide up the falls was GREAT. All were very nice and at 72 years old I made it all the way up the falls. The only negative was the directions on how to find the excursion at the port--there was no one actually near the port. Asked someone and they said in a blue tent--there were many blue tents. We walked all around and kept asking; finally found them in the parking lot. They said they were not allowed up in the area where you get off ship. Directions need a serious overhaul, but not the guides fault so I still gave excellent.
Reviewer: Tom DeScioli
Great Guide on the tour and great river guide on the climb. Video is not great quality but it shows the fun stuff.
We had such a great time on the Dunns River Falls tour! Our driver was so nice and entertaining. Our tour guide on the hike was a blast. We had a group of 18, and we all had a good time. The hike was gorgeous, and we got some awesome photos and memories to last a lifetime.
I expected something different. I thought you would climb I mountain to see a water fall. Didn't expect to climb the waterfall straight up. At least you were cool the whole time.
Reviewer: Megan loves to Travel
We really enjoyed the express excursion to Dunn's River Falls! It took about 45 minutes to get there. Our tour guide was very informative. It was very busy since there were 5 other ships in port that day, however it kept moving! I am really glad we decided to do this.
We had so much fun doing this excursion. I was a little hesitant at first with the holding hands deal, but once acclimated, it became a huge help and sense of security. Our guides were great.
Great trip with fantastic guides. So much fun for our family who ranged in age from 9-70. Would highly recommend. There is no food offered on this trip though so plan accordingly!!
Our kids and grandkids loved it!! It was a bit of a struggle for us close to 70! Wish you had offered grotto caves too! Our guide was excellent and gave us history on way to falls! The guide on falls was so kind and helped everyone that struggled! People were very friendly! Our extra items which you can't take we're very safe on the bus! We did stop on way back at a shopping area and also to eat! Food was was excellent and cheap! We ate what locals would eat and people there talked to us!
Cool water, cool excursion!
The entire excursion was well planned and well executed
Reviewer: Wet but wild
It was a fun day to Dunns River Falls...the staff was meeting us and transferring us were great and very professional. The trip was a bit long and it rained during the whole day but overall it was fun to experience. We were a group of 5 and only 2 of the 5 decided to climb because of the weather but the other 3 enjoyed watching from the sideline.
The river guides were poor. Too many people in each group. We kept getting separated at the back. We had to yell to him which way to go because they were already around the next bend.
Reviewer: Nancy from Illinois
Dunns River Falls was so much fun -- the best excursion we took on our cruise. Our guide at the falls was wonderful -- very happy and fun to be with. Our van driver was also very nice and very informative on our drive to and from the falls.
Our guides, Cowboy and Tricia, were great and kept us informed of all activities. Good narrator's of Jamaica life and events. Would recommend them to anyone desiring excursions on the island.
Our guide to the falls was great! Pointed out all the culture and gave the history about the area the entire drive! She also taught us several phrases to ""speak the language!"" She answered all our questions and was a lot of fun!!!!
Reviewer: DC and SL from Houston
The walk thru the falls was a once in a lifetime experience. Be careful of the tour bus guide (the driver was great). She tends to take you to shop at the most expensive place on the island. We also had to eat on the run (order to go/ate on the bus). I will say the jerk chicken was GREAT and inexpensive. The driver of the tour was fantastic.
The guides were great and they made it very fun! What a great experience.
Our guide from the port was Amazing her name was Alisia she was sweet, friendly, fun, funny and very informative of the falls and Jamaica. I honestly could have hung out with her all day and listened to her. Dunns Falls was Beautiful or guide was Awesome very fun and friendly, he was very helpful. I don't think there was any turning back he was determined to help each and every person didn't matter was size or age he was helping. So glade we did this excursion Thank You
River guides were terrific. So good with people, and so understanding.
It is an experience every one should try- the guides up are helpful and make the experince fun
This was a very unique experience and one we will not forget. climbing through the waterfall was really exciting and our kids loved it. Afterwards there is a lot of pressure to buy the video (not from the excursion company). We bought the video and had to go through the craft market to get it. In the craft market many of the locals are trying to sell you everything and they got very pushy even after we had purchased something. My daughter was actually a little scared since they wouldn't leave us alone. It was not enough to ruin our day however, and I would recommend this excursion to others.
This excursion was great from start to finish. The tour company met us at the expected time and were very friendly and helpful. During the hour-long air conditioned van ride from Falmouth to Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios, our tour guide entertained us with information about Jamaica, things we were passing along the road, and with lessons on how to speak the language. It honestly made an hour fly by and was an unexpected fun part of the exursion. Upon arrival and the falls, our guide walked us in, gave us wristbands, and got us to where we met our guides for the falls, who were all very experienced. Throughout the climb, they helped us when needed, and gave advice about where to step and not to step. We also had a videographer with us, who filmed the group of 20 we were climbing with. Along the way he would talk and joke with us. During the climb there were a few different spots to stop and take photos (the guides helped with this), slide down rocks into pools, fall backwards into pools, and so forth. It really was a very entertaining journey to the top. Once our climb was completed, we had the opportunity to purchase photos taken by the guides as well as a DVD of the video. We met back up with our guide from the van and headed back to Falmouth. While this part of the trip wasn't as entertaining as the way there, we were still riding in comfort. Overall a really great experience, and one we would definitely do again.
Will go again
Good family excursion. Follow the guides and enjoy the beauty! Wear beach shoes or sneakers!
Reviewer: Chix Flix
We were concerned that this would be an exhausting trip, but it turned out to be exhilarating climbing up the falls. Driver was very nice and stopped the van frequently for picture taking.
Bring water shoes. There are lockers for rent
Reviewer: Kim & Ted
Yardie tours was very accomodating. Dunn's River Falls were beautiful. Due to health issues we were unable to climb the Falls and were hesitant about going on this excursion. Yardie Tours provided personalized one on one tour guide. Walked the Falls instead of climbing the Falls. Knowledgable and attentive guide. Definitely would book again with them. GREAT EXCURSION! Glad we booked it.
Reviewer: Sorrentino family
Our guide was wonderful, energetic & educational. Loved her giggling personality!
Reviewer: Saints Fan 49
Yardie tours and guide Christopher English were fantastic,Loved very small tour group. Our 2.5 hr tour lasted 3.5 hrs. He informed us of island history,stopped @a few historical sites, showed us several scenic views of the ocean, He took care of entry into waterfall,informed us of what to expect on walk to and from waterfall Stopped to sample island meat pies before returning to port.Our excursion was truely memorable Ended tour knowing we had received more than we paid for in entertainment, Thank You Mr. English for a great excursion we will surely talk about for a very long time.
The only thing that was frustrating was that we didn't know we had to have water shoes to participate in the walking up the falls. Needs to be clearly stated within the information.
Very fun -- you definitely get wet and should be prepared with swim shoes. You can rent them there, but found the Jamaican people very friendly, but very assertive in trying to sell things. Too much so....very uncomfortable. When walking by shops -- avoid eye contact -- they are very aggressive. Climbing the falls was fun!
our tour guide Christopher was excellent, make the trip worth while and educational. Two thumbs up!!!!
