What people are saying about St. James Parish

Our driver Claude was great - very welcoming and attentive. We learnt much about Jamaica and Jamaican culture through him. We had enough time to explore the waterfalls, the beach and surrounding areas. Do bring reef/water shoes - you won’t be a allowed to climb the waterfall without them.

Our Driver, Claude, was very pleasant and reliable. We contacted him directly for two other days of traveling, he was very accommodating and we will definitely contact him directly in the future. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great day out. Long day of travelling but worth it to climb up the falls and visit Bob Marleys house. Also made better by the knowledgeable tour guide Washington and his friendly driver David.

We had an absolute blast. The staff was so fun and accommodating. Music was great, drinks were great! 100% would book this again. Only downside was that there’s a lot of people on one cruise.

Robert was great. He was pleasant and made sure everyone was comfortable. He was very familiar and skilled with challenging roads up to 9 mile.
