Croydon Plantation with Jamaican Lunch
Reviewed by: Heather S, July 2016
I had an amazing time! The drive kept us safe and did an excellent job getting us there and back! The tour guide was funny and very educational! I learned a lot and the best part was the surprise of visiting a private elementary school! The food at the end that the lovely ladies cooked for us was THE best Jamaican food I have had all my life!!!!! I even got to meet the men on the plantation that worked there and they were very friendly! I would definitely suggest future tourist to book this tour because it was full or history, culture, comedy, and love!!!

If you have any interest in the medicinal value of plants, if you enjoy scenic drives in the mountains, if you like to meet kind people then you will enjoy this tour. Hines was our fearless driver and Winston was our wonderful tour guide.
Winston knows Croydon Plantation very well and did an excellent job of including everyone in the group. Hines did not run over any goats and is the sweetest man! You also get to eat many delicious things!

The trip to Croydon Plantation was very good. Our guide, Alicia, was very knowledgeable as well as a delightful person to converse with. Our driver, Keith was very informative about the Montego Bay area and Jamaican life in general. One suggestion, give Keith a microphone so passengers in the back of the bus won't miss any of his interesting and humorous commentary. The drive to and from the plantation was equally worth the trip and it allowed us to see Jamaican life outside the All-Inclusive.

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.

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.
