The plantation itself was beautiful; the tour guide and all the staff were totally gracious. BUT the entire nature of this excursion has made us very twitchy. The bus ride out could be considered either exhilarating or terrifying, depending on your taste for breakneck speeds down barely passable roads. That said, the bus driver seemed very comfortable with this pace... More

We enjoyed the actual tour of the plantation. It was beautiful! Our tour guide, Alicia, was knowledgeable, pleasant and answered many questions. We got to see the different plants and fruits grown on the property and were given samples to taste. Alicia shared some of the health and healing benefits from the plants. We give a thumb’s up for the... More

We visited Croydon Plantation today and just wanted to thank our tour guide Alecia - hope that's the correct spelling, for a very interesting and informative tour. The whole trip was well organised and we enjoyed our refreshment breaks along the route and then our lunch. We could not have got there without our driver Garth who managed to make... More

This tour was very educational and provides you insight to how real Jamaicans live. We left resort and picked up our tour guide Winston and were off to the interior of Jamaica. The road was very narrow and bumpy but we made the best of it with our tour guide entertaining us and informing us of various facts about the... More

The plantation was interesting but our tour guide, while knowledgeable, was slow, a bit crass and engaged in some off color jokes. He seemed to drag the tour out forever rather than moving things along.

A very informative guided walk of the grounds and its plants. Alecia described the plants and their uses in Jamaican folk medicine with great care and was a wealth of knowledge on Jamaican culture as well. The tasting stations and the several varieties of pineapple are a highlight!

Do yourself a favor and book this tour if you're planning a trip to Jamaica. We booked through a company called Viator, however, I'm sure there's plenty of other tour companies you can go through. The company itself that was outsourced was JTL. They picked us up at our hotel on time. Keith, was our driver, and he was beyond... More
