What people are saying about Ocho Rios
Since both Dunn's Falls and Nine Mile are a long drive from our Montego Bay resort, combining them made good sense and with just one other coupe picked up in Och Rios we could set our own pace, stop for pictures along the way and delete the commission generating shopping that was not supposed to be in the program anyway. Our guide Jesse did a very good job as did our guide a Dunn's River Falls. Our cell phone had a waterproof case and that is a necessity if you want your own pictures. Nine Mile was not what we expected (if you want to learn about Marley and or Rasta you better do your own research on the internet), but Mr. Crazy (check him out on YouTube) is entertaining to say the least and if that is what pot does to you, legalizing it is a big mistake. The drive into the mountains is a great way to see the countryside. Lunch and dinner were fine but had we skipped dinner we could have done the luminescent lagoon earlier and had as good a meal back at our all inclusive resort.
If you have to choose one, go with Nine Mile. But, if you can do both, you should. Although this was a very long day, if you love Bob like I do, it was very much worth it! Our guide at Nine Mile was "Crazy," get him if you can! Our tour at the museum happened to be with about 15-20 high schoolers, not ideal. Wait for a smaller tour group if you can. This was a private tour with just me and my travel companion. Our guides were amazing they answered all of our questions and we had MANY! Trench Town Cultural Center provided the history of government housing in Kingston which was interesting and we got to see where Bob composed some of his most famous tunes, very cool. The staff was not overly welcoming, but it didn't bother me, as most of the tour was self-evident.
The Narrator was excellent enjoyed the humour , The young driver was punctual ,kind & helpful took care of us felt confidently safe with him , his driving skills made us feel relaxed & at ease , attentive to our needs helpful young man proud to have had him as our driver especially when giving us a tour of Montego bay City in the thick of traffic he was excellent & knowledgeable & willing to impart what information he knew, we returned to the hotel in the time allocated , if & when we return we would be happy to have him to be our driver, he allayed any fear or anxiety after my concern a bout the legitimately of company having booked on line randomly but it turned out well on the day
The guide was punctual, incredibly knowledgeable, and took us on a great tour. The half day tours wouldn't do this justice! I definitely recommend tossing in a few extra dollars and doing this all day adventure. As avid Marley fans we definitely weren't disappointed! Worth every penny :)
Great day out n provided with lots of additional info by Tony our guide. Slightly disappointed not to go for lunch at Usain Bolts restaurant in Kingston as advertised but did not ruin our day. Traffic in Kingston is absolute madness!!
