What people are saying about Falmouth, Jamaica

It was a fantastic experience, our guide made us feel very safe. As well as being very skilled at piloting the raft down river and gave us facts and history about Jamaica and it’s nature . And the raft ride was really fun and entertaining. I would recommend this everyone visiting Jay

Christina the tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed every bit of this excursion. Be warned that the trip to nine mile was narrow long and bumpy but that was part of the fun. If you’re in doubt about this trip.. don’t be!!

We so enjoyed this excursion but what made it all work was our bus driver, Robert! He did a great job taking us to all our excursions! The guide for the falls was excellent as well and we felt so safe climbing the falls!

Our driver Michael was incredible! He made it ten times better with his conversation, knowledge, and guiding advice throughout. He's a great asset for Holiday Services, thank you Michael!!!

We were picked up on time, the driver was very nice, we have now made the excursion for the second time, anytime again! Top recommendation
