Croydon Plantation with Jamaican Lunch
Reviewed by: Judith K, January 2014
Entertaining and knowledgeable guide and bus driver. Enjoyed sites along the way, as well as, the fabulous plantation. This tour is for those who will appreciate Jamaican landscapes outside a resort town/city, getting up close and familiar with the plants, including fruits, nuts, flowers, herbs and spices, and coffee production on a plantation. It is also for those who would enjoy sampling freshly picked tropical fruits, and an enjoyable lunch with opportunity to learn while having fun.

one of the most informative tours i have ever been on.We tasted,felt and smelled everything that was grown on this platation.Alisha and Wnston , our two tour guides did a terrific job and we were introduced to the owner of the plantation and were free to ask him questions.I can't say enough about the informative nature of the tour and the hands on approach of the tour.

The Croydon Plantation Tour was such an educational experience. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour guide's presentation while on the plantation. The entire culture which is so different from ours, opened our eyes and we developed an appreciation for what nature can do at the expense of man's hands. We will never forget our experience. Tasting the different fruits was a bonus.

This was a great excursion - You start off by learning a bit about Jamaica and the plantation, and then they tell you about the coffee and honey production. You get to try fresh pineapple juice, like 10 different kinds of pineapple, and a fresh, hot lunch at the end (complete with Blue Mountain Coffee!). I don't really like pineapple but I loved almost every single kind I tried - it's so fresh here. If you're not into learning or trying new things this probably isn't for you. But otherwise, go for it. We even got to meet the plantation owner. :]

This trip was simply amazing! We were pleasantly surprised on how delightful the plantation was. The day started off with a wonderful bus ride by a very friendly and safe driver named Artwell. We then picked up some equally wonderful tour guides, Alicia and Winston...they were a blast....very knowledgeable and funny beyond belief! We arrived at the plantation to be treated to delicious treats, an education and a scrumptious lunch..(thank you Michelle)......we even met the owner...Mr. Hannah...what a sweetheart.All in all it was a marvelous day and we left feeling a little sad...knowing it would be awhile before we meet these lovely folks again...Go...you will be very glad you did!!
