I have been on better.
I have been on better. The guide was knowledgeable but he canned banter was too long. The food on the plantation was terrible. No taste and no flavor, too bad we were really looking forward to some authentic Jamaican food.

We did the All Inclusive Thrill Seeker & Adventure Falls with Lunch and Open Bar. It was pricey but worth it. The zip lining and ATK activities were great. They have a large swimming pool and a 300' water slide to stay cool in. My only criticism is they were not very clear how to sign iup and get to each activity. They have an Information Booth that is central to everything. Everyone must check in to the ONE Info Booth after each activity in order to get scheduled for the next activity. We tried to do the ATV tour 5 times and were told the ATV's were not running. We finally figured out that you had to wait next to the Info Booth and when the current ATV tour finished, you would be assigned to go on them. Read Less

Nice drive to the plantation gave us a view of the interior of this part of Jamaica. The plantation itself was lovely, the history was fascinating, and the tea was nicely done. I have a very sensitive stomach and the food and tea were fine. I worry every time food is involved in any tour, so if it was ok for me, it's fine for most people.

We went to the Park (can't remember the exact name), which granted access to the Sugar Plantation tour (very informative), ziplining through the canopy (very exciting), tubing down the Martha Brae river (leisurely, guide provided information on Jamaica, told lots of jokes, etc.).

Tour was overbooked. Traveled in a bus filled to bursting with every drop-down seat in the middle aisle filled. We had taken this tour about 10 years ago, and at that time, the house was beautiful. Now it was in run-down condition. There was evidence of pieces of the roof dropping down on the furniture and floor. (The tour guide joked that the holes in the ceiling was part of the air conditioning system!) Everything was scuffed. How sad. The inference was that we would be eating lunch at the house. We were taken to an outdoor area with wooden picnic tables. They ran out of food, so we were given a roll and spoonful of okra(?) All in all, an uncomfortable day. Read Less

Duplicate of Tour Code FYA5, 1700's High Tea at Good Hope Estate, which we took last (2015) Xmas. Our RCL brochure description listed both tours and for FY16 failed to say this was Good Hope plantation. Same plantation, same uncomfortable bus, sameroad and same house Tour explanation. Only difference we spent 15 min. at old water wheel and had lunch not tea. Protested this fraud at Guest Services who passed this on to excursions staff who were supposed to call us. No response. Asked our Diamond Lounge concierge to follow up but she had no success. Finally got msg. From concierge saying we could get discount. That discount was $6.90 each! The excursion cost was $69.00 each. We wasted $69 on a ride to see a waterwheel and a day of our 8 day cruise. Read Less

A short ride to Good Hope Plantation with high tea Jamaican style was interesting. The house was interesting and very old. The tea was Jamaican style with English tones. We sampled jerk chicken, cucumber sandwiches, scones, cookies, bread, mango fruit punch and a variety of teas and coffee. I had the Jamaican cinnamon tea and it was yummy as was the punch. Read Less

Great Hope House. 20 minute bus ride. We rode the ATV's not much to see, just basically riding ATV's among trees. Never got a tour of the house, wasn't to impressed with the trip. The rum punch there was very good though
