          Take the tour
          This tour takes the whole day, considering the distance between the 3 destinations. But it's definitely worth it! The waterfalls are breathtaking, the Appleton Estate tour is informative, and the lunch served at the estate is delicious - I wish I could have had seconds. The private tour of the Black River was stunning, and I even had the chance to hold a baby crocodile! I highly recommend. The staff with VIP tours Jamaica Shoshana and Jack were accommodating, comedic and knowledge.

          Worth Booking
          My wife and I booked this package through Chukka during our trip to Montego Bay & we were not disappointed. We were glad we booked it with a tour company as the roads are small & windy. The drive from Montego Bay is a couple of hours. Yet our driver was amazing & provided a lot of wonderful information. This is a fantastic way to see the sights & country outside of the city. We were definitely not disappointed. We enjoyed learning about the Black River, seeing the YZ Falls & learning about how to make rum at Appleton Estates. At the falls take tip money as the lifeguards will assist you walking around the falls & take your pictures. The tour guide at the Black was very knowledgeable & let us touch us a crocodile. Finally, the Appleton Estate Tour was very informative & interactive. We would definitely recommend & we were not disappointed.

          A very full day experiencing this beautiful island
          Everything was awesome. The Appleton Estate tour was fantastic…entertaining and informative, and the 3 rums was tasted were outstanding. YS falls: a beautiful spring-fed series of falls with natural pools to swim in, rope swings, a guide who took a ton of great pictures, and great jerk chicken and fries. What else do you need? The Black River tour was a beautiful ride through the mangroves with Egrets, Herons, and 5 or 6 good-sized crocodiles. Our captain was informative and hilarious. Our Driver/guide, Jermaine, was outstanding. He told us about the history of the island and life on the island. He made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We will absolutely book with him again when we come back to this beautiful island.

          A great way to see the island
          Booked this tour during an Apple Vacation. It was a great way to see the island outside of the resort. The Black River Private Tour was very interesting and it is good to know they are trying to preserve this wetland. They are restocking the alligators and they do come up close and personnel to the boat. The thing that I really didn't like was that the tour operator did ask for a tip at the end of the ride. It was the only time during the whole vacation there that someone actually suggested a tip. I didn't give him as much as I would have because of that. YS Falls is really very pretty. We got to climb up on the rocks and you could go in the water at the base of the falls if you wanted. The water was to cold for that. You could zipline if you wanted too. I did not. The Appleton Estate tour was really the best. Our tour guide was fabulous. You got to see how the rum was made back in the day and at present. You got to taste sugar cane, which I had never tasted and the molasses byproduct from the distillation process. Of course there was the rum tasting and after the tour that was my husband's favorite drink at the resort. The estate was very pretty and well kept. The fees were included in our tour price so I can't speak about that. I truly enjoyed seeing this place. If you have the time I would recommend going to see this estate. The falls are really cool and I would go see this attraction again if it was included with something else. The falls are in a park and the grounds are very well tended. I probably would not take the river tour again, it was ok but not that interesting. These 3 places took us over quite a bit of the island. It was very interesting to see how the people there live. Our tour guide told us a lot about life there and I really enjoyed hearing about that. Many areas are really very poor and it gives you a different perspective about things. Taking these tours was a nice way to get off the resort safely. If you can, I suggest taking a tour just to see the island in a different way.

          Do it!!
          We had amazing tour guides. Got to see a lot in one day. First we did the Black River safari. Beautiful scenery and learned about the animals in the area. Next we did YS Falls. A relaxing place tucked away from the super touristy areas. We had lunch there. Great food!! Final stop was Appleton. Very informative tour with a nice tasting. If you are looking to really see different parts on the island away from the beaten path, I recommend.

          Great experience, saw a lot
          Loved the rum tasting and the sugar cane juice was yummy (had to work for it was fun). Held a crocodile, saw many in the river too, they come when called. Ys was well guided and very pretty! The guide took pictures of us and we could rope swing there. So lots of good memories. Only downside is with everything in Jamaica for tours, a bit expensive. But must say, this was my favorite on our Jamaica trip.

          Great round-trip transportation
          Patrick was the best host/driver for our long excursion from Montego Bay to the boat for our transportation to the Pelican Bar and back! He talked the whole way and was telling us about different parts of the island that we drove by and was so knowledgeable! Highly recommend it!

          Best Guide
          We booked a trip to Floyd’s Pelican Bar & were blessed to get Patrick Vasser as our driver & guide. Patrick navigated the busy narrow roads expertly, never getting flustered with the multitude of questions asked regarding the passing scenery. He even took the time to ask if we needed a “pit stop” & as a group of 4 woman, this was a welcome break!! You could certainly tell he had done this many times before. But, his thoughtfulness did not end there. He continued to show us and tell us exactly what to do & waited while we were off on our excursion! It was definitely a comfort knowing he was waiting for our return. He took us to an area where could rinse our feet and use a restroom before our trek back to our resort. Our journey back was equally pleasant, again entertaining our multitude of questions. Patrick was professional, considerate, knowledgeable, kind, friendly, & honest. All these attributes are so important when you are in an unfamiliar area. Trust is really hard to earn but we felt that immediately with Patrick! Right from the beginning he told us the journey to our destination might be a little crazy & chaotic but that he will take care of us…and he delivered! I recommend Patrick to anyone who is traveling to Jamaica & books through Viator! If you can…request him!!

          No quite what we expected…
          I was a little bit disappointed as the TripAdvisor trip was not exactly what we paid…YS falls was closed, as was Appleton at the time that we booked. Trip advisor and the places we booked to see could have done a better job communicating with us about the last minute closures. This commute was 2.5 hours both ways from our hotel and took a lot of our time. we did have an amazing driver Patrick who made sure that we had a great time dispute 2 of the three locations belong closed: we did tour other provinces, ate great local food, and check pelican bar which was great. If you ever need a driver throughout trip advisor as for Patrick he is the best!!!

          Great Tour!
          This is a must do tour! We had a chance to take a boat ride through the beautiful Black River filled with beautiful plants, trees and wildlife. After The Black River tour we went to YS Falls which is beautiful, but the the climb up can be a little challenging. The guides here are excellent and will take your photos for you. This is no where as crowded or the size of Dunns River which in my opinion means you actually get a chance to enjoy its beauty even more. Lastly we visited Appleton Estate. This tour was great and was accompanied by a tasting of 3 of their rums. So for anyone who takes this tour let me tell you…. Buy your rum while on this tour! They DO NOT sell Appleton Rum in the duty free at the Airport. I which they told us this during the tour and I would have purchased more.

          Great bucket list excursion!
          Great bucket list excursion! Boat staff very friendly and professional. Great tour! It would have been nice to stay in the water a bit longer. Beware-bar staff charged men more than women for beverages. Also not very friendly towards women.

        We went to Half Moon Beach to get away from negril beach and a nice lunch. After we ordered and sat on the beach we saw the island that calico jacks pirate shack was on. Long story short they packed our lunch to go and off on a boat we went!!! We had an amazing afternoon. Highly Recommended check this place out.

        We visited Calico Jack's 3 years ago on our anniversary. My husband *& I enjoyed a great meal and plenty of Red Stripes while taking in the beautiful ocean. This year we took our teenage kids back and had another great meal and snorkeled around the island. It is just wonderful. I highly recommend renting a boat to take you there and enjoy an afternoon of quiet time, as it does not get very crowded and is a nice place to unwind.
