It was a great day for us. The Appleton Estate is closed on Sunday and Monday, so we didn’t get to go into the estate. Getting there was long winding roads going thru several towns. The driver was so great. He gave us the information about each town and the communities. It was fantastic. The highlight was getting on the boat to the Pelican Bar. What a cool place in the middle of the Sea. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this tour and this driver. He is fantastic!

The beach was exceptionally! It was so clean. Service was great. The vendor went out of their way to find me transportation from a local partner. The driver was very informative & accommodating. I think this way by far no of the most beautiful beaches in Montego Bay.

It was awesome the people were friendly the food was better than resort
