Full description
With this excursion, instead of taking 3 days out of your vacation to see all of these popular Jamaican attractions you can visit them all in just 1 day. Climb Dunn’s River Falls. With the help of your guide, you’ll climb 600 feet to the top of this magnificent waterfall that’s tiered like a wedding cake. Stop for a swim in the refreshing rock pools. With the guide’s help, it’s an easy climb that everyone can enjoy.

After the falls, you’ll have a tour of the town of Ocho Rios with a stop for souvenir shopping and to enjoy a typical Jamaican lunch. Next, you’ll head off on a drive through small market towns and hills to 9 Mile, the birth and final resting place of reggae superstar Bob Marley. Hear the story of his childhood and rise to stardom.

Option Bioluminescent Lagoon Cruise and Dinner
As you head back towards the coast you’ll stop at the Joe James Restaurant and Art Gallery. Enjoy Mr. James’s artwork and sit sown for a Jamaican family style dinner (included). Finish your tour with a visit to the Luminous Lagoon, inhabited by microscopic organisms that emit a phosphorescent light when the water is agitated. Shortly after sunset, you’ll board a boat that takes you across the lagoon. As the water is disturbed, you’ll see the water illuminated behind the boat. Stop to enjoy a swim and watch your body glow. This luminous phenomenon is only seen in 3 locations on the planet.

Michael our driver was an excellent host for the day chauffeuring my partner and I to all attractions including two restaurants during what was an excellent day and my birthday treat. Climbing Dunn’s River falls is a must do activity as was visiting Bob Marley’s final resting place. We felt safe at all times and the day was not rushed at all with plenty of time for sight seeing between events.

We enjoyed everything about this excursion.. Our driver, Michael, was very knowledgeable about the island and was open to questions. We felt safe with him. I was traveling with my two young children and Michael was very considerate of them when selecting music and movies during our ride. Also, when my son forgot his souvenir cup on the tour bus, Michael was kind enough to return it to our resort.. The Bob Marley museum was nice, the employees there shared lots about Bob that I did not know. There are a lot of steps but its well worth it. Dunn's River Waterfall was easier than I remembered (I climbed many years ago) and worried if I would make it to the top this time. With the help of the guides, I made it!! I would definitely recommend this tour and this company!!! Don't second guess it, go and enjoy!!!

A long but fun day that combined the 3 sites we wanted to see.

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.
