This guided tour did not include the Plantation house as expected. It did involve a long, wild, bumpy ride on very narrow roads thru small, rural towns and villages, filled with local residents and school children in colorful uniforms, doing their everyday living. The Croydon Plantation included sugar cane, exotic varieties of coffee, pineapple, ginger, strange native trees and beautiful... More

I found it hard to tear myself away from the scenery to focus on the info being shared during the tour ..but I'm glad I did because I learned a ton about pineapples!!! Apparently the best time to visit... More

after a short informative presentation, we were able to pick coffee beans, and, witness the washing and drying process. Unfortunately, by national coffee board regulations, roasting can not be done on individual farms, so, not able to witness that. Introduced to many different types of pineapple and fruit tree plantings and offered multiple opportunity to taste different fruits, as well... More

An interesting and informative tour that takes you out of the resort zone up a windy and sometimes rough rural road to a mountain top plantation. 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 7. The kids thought it was a good tour and never seemed bored. What you see and learn during the trip is the history of Jamaica... More

Definitely one of the highlights. An informative, entertaining and enthusiastic introduction to Jamaica's history and geography , traditional herbal medicine, plantation life. All of this in beautiful surroundings and interspersed with tasty treats freshly harvested and a delicious lunch. Well worth the visit!

We really enjoyed this trip, as it provides a nice reprieve from all the hustle of the resort. Our guides Alisa and Winston were wonderful. The knowledge that Alisa had regarding the medicinal benefits of all the plants etc. was so informative. Good luck to her in her nursing studies. The plantation is lush, and very diverse. From pineapples to... More
