Full description
Get acquainted with Jamaica's second city on a tour of Montego Bay, known to locals as 'Mobay." Discover a mix of old and new as you learn the city's rich history. Pass through downtown to see how the locals live and journey through narrow streets watching street vendors, school children and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Go to the "Hip Strip" before visiting the residential area of Ironshore, where you will get a first-hand experience of Jamaican residences, from small homes to extraordinary mansions. Grab the chance to do some souvenir shopping at stops where you can purchase coffee, rum and spices. Then, as the sun sets, visit the home of Annie Palmer, known as the "White Witch of Rose Hall." Follow your guide on a candlelit tour through the haunted house, learning its history. Listen to the floors creak beneath your feet as the former plantation comes alive to Annie's story. She famously killed her 3 husbands and countless lovers before being murdered in the house, which she continues to haunt to this day. Watch out for ghosts, including Annie herself! You then have the option to continue to the Luminous Lagoon to see the microscopic organisms that emit a phosphorescent light when the water is agitated. Shortly after sunset, board a boat that will take you across the lagoon, and marvel at the effects as the water is disturbed. Stop for a swim to experience the miracle of seeing your body glow! This is only available in 3 locations on the planet and is a must see in Jamaica.

Funny and informative

It is not a museum but a scary tour through an old colonial house where some interesting information is provided on a guided tour. We were expecting a museum. The tour was still funny and who knows, will probably like it. We didn't find it particularly creepy. We had combined the tour with the glowing lagoon so we didn't regret it and found it pleasant evening entertainment. If you hope for a lot of information about the colonial period and sugar plantations, this is out of place.

Experience Jamaica by Night!

5 star !!!!! Loved having the option of doing The night time Rose Hall tour and Luminous Lagoon as a package-(didn't find that available anywhere else!). Our guide Jr. gave us the Jamaica experience and took us on a great Montego Bay city tour. Excellent value all the way and the car was very comfortable with great music!. As 2 middle aged women (Karen & Karen) traveling alone we always felt safe with him. Highly recommend this must do Jamaica experience !!!!!!
