We had a group of 7 of us traveling into Ochi on a cruise. Only one of us had ever been to Jamaica years ago, so we had no idea where to turn for entertainment. My husband and I normally do not book excursions through the cruise lines, as they are far too expensive. I found Barrett Adventures through here... More

Our family of 5 had a great day sailing with Carolyn Barrett and Harry, her crew mate. It was one of our favorite days while in Jamaica. Carolyn is very knowledgeable about Jamaica and told us all about the country's history, geography, the people, and its culture. She loves Jamaica and has been living there for over 25 years! Harry... More

Carolyn was super responsive, flexible with our slightly different plan for the day than the usual tour, and a true pleasure to talk with. Barrett Adventures is one of the best tour organizations we've used and we'd highly recommend them for seeing Jamaica. Go beyond the all-inclusives and spend your time with someone engaging who knows the country deeply.

We emailed with Carolyn before going to Jamaica and she was always very responsive. As soon as we booked the half day sailing trip she emailed us right away to confirm. We wanted to make sure that the sail would be appropriate to include our 7 month old son. My son was napping while the rest of my family went... More

We spent a day sailing with Carolyn and Harry last week and had a great time. They picked us up in front of our resort, took us to the boat, sailed all morning, fixed us a great lunch, and sailed the rest of the afternoon. They were delightful company and made us feel perfectly at home. What a great day!

We emailed with Carolyn who was quick and informative. We scheduled two tours with Barrett Adventures and we're lucky enough to have Loxley as our guide each day. We went ziplining in the mountains and did a trip to Negril beach and Ricks Cafe. He was fun to talk to, full of local knowledge, and accommodated all requests. He took... More

I have been working with Carolyn for over 7 years for my guests. There has been nothing less than Wow factors on all of her tours. If you want to have an experience that is away from the crowds with a very high level of customer service Barrett Tours is the way to go. l

Carolyn Barrett was wonderful, my husband did I private sailing trip for the day with Carolyn, and Hairy. We got to go snorkeling and hang out on the boat for the day, which also included an amazing lunch that they provided! Such a special thing to do on our honeymoon!!

Our plan was to eat a great local breakfast, climb Dunn's River Falls, and then squeeze as much into the rest of our day as possible, including eating local whenever we could. We made arrangements with Carolyn over email, who was very accommodating and let us put a deposit down using PayPal. Richard Woolary picked us up at our resort... More
