We had a great time hiking Dunns River Falls! Our tour guide was excellent and our River guide was helpful, funny, quick and seemed to be everywhere all at once. Even though it was a big group he made sure we were all safe. We even had a designated photographer who took great photos and video of our adventure so we could focus. Highly recommend this excursion!

Perfect Family Experience
February 17, 2023
Fun from start to finish. You meet your driver in the port shopping plaza parking area. From there you are driven to Dunn's River Falls and given some facts about Falmouth and the island. The driver was great! You can leave your belongings in the shuttle if you don't want to pay for lockers. The tour guides at the falls were very entertaining. You are allowed to film/take photos but they also document the experience for you and at the time could purchase the video at the end for $30. Once done you ride back to port. 100% recommend.

This was a great outing. You are going to walk in water up to your chest. You need to make sure you have comfortable water shoes as well as either a water tight pouch for documents/phone or leave them on the bus. You will be lead through the fall by a local guide (different than your excursion guide) along with a photographer. You will need to tip both the guide and the photographer. If you want the pictures they take it will cost you about $40. Your guide from the port and back will also make a stop for souvenirs. You can buy things at the shop the guide takes you to but there are multiple shops you can checkout in the same shopping area.

Very Fun Excursion!
December 10, 2019
The meetup site was close to the ship with helpful directions on the ticket. Our group tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our group was not too big, the van was comfortable, and the ride was relatively pleasant. The falls themselves were so cool!! I opted to go ahead of the group because 1. It was a very large group at the falls 2. I don’t like holding hands woh strangers and 3. The falls are open to the public so you can technically go on your own. I had so much fun climbing all over the falls, exploring each level, and challenging myself to find new paths. The tour took us shopping afterwards where we could get souvenirs and food. Always try to negotiate prices. They got us back in plenty of time to shop by the boat and make it back comfortably before departure. I really enjoyed this excursion.

So many people told us to do the falls and I thought I want to do something different, not what everyone else has done. Well I was impress with the guide that got us there and the guide who toke us up the falls was full of happiness, fun to be around, but best of all safety came first, which is important to me. I would definitely recommend this excursion.

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.

Dunn's River Falls/reen Groto Caves
February 23, 2019
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!

My Rrip to Dunns River, Jamaica
December 18, 2018
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!

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.

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

November 05, 2016
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.

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.
