1700's Great House and Plantation Tour with Lunch - FY16 Was informative and the tour guide, Lydia, was very nice. Bus was large and packed full, plus the seats in front of us were stuck leaning back so the ride there was cramped. They had to send us back afterwards on two different buses and we had to wait awhile for the second bus to get there. The plantation was in a beautiful location and the breeze on the hilltop was amazing on such a hot day. Gorgeous plants and lots of hummingbirds with long, curly tails! Lunch was delicious and plentiful. Just wish the group had been smaller. We couldn't hear the guide half the time because our group was just too big - but it was okay. We wandered around soaking up the scenery and asking questions when we could. Definitely worth seeing and doing. Read Less

The tour guide was excellent, funny and knowledgeable; Lydia did a great job. the plantation was huge and we got to see a good part of it. The tour mainly concentrated on the Great House which was beautiful and very interesting, especially the history of the owners. You go through the grounds, the gardens and the house itself. Then you go have a Jerk Chicken lunch which was very delicious. The tour company Chakka is leasing the entire plantation and using it as the sight of almost all their tours...so there were also zip-lines, ATV rides, horseback riding ect. They also mentioned that they were putting in a water slide and a restaurant so there may be even more options in the near future... Read Less

Soon we were riding up into the hills where the houses were really nice. The guide said they were owned by foreigners who rented them out. Finally we reached Greenwood Great House. It is over 200 years old and was formerly owned by the family of Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, the famous English poet. Greenwood is one of the best preserved great houses on the island. They said the new owners actually live there and have tours during the day to help pay for maintenance on it. It was a fascination old plantation house/museum. We were even given something to drink in the old kitchen which is now also a bar/restaurant. back on the bus, Ken noticed a free wi fi sign, so we checked email and put a couple pictures on facebook. Next stop was a bay which was suppose to have bioluminescent critters in it that light up when the water is disturbed, but it was daylight so it wasn't visible. Our guide was very good. We don't usually do ship excursions because they are so expensive, but we were happy with this one. Read Less

Took a trip to the Good Hope Estates. It was the least expensive excursion we did but was just as enjoyable as our more expensive excursions. The tour guides provided a lot of information about the island and the history.

Good Hope Plantation was a nice trip. Horse drawn carriage ride, house tour and rum tasting. It was nice even though it rained. Thrill seekers can ride ATV's, zip line and river tube.Not much outside the port if you are not on a tour.

Long walk from ship to bus so beware if you have trouble walking long distances. Roads are very bumpy and you drive through very depressed areas of the island to get to the plantation. High tea was very nice and house was interesting - pretty estate, but once you have seen it there would be no reason to return. We had to switch buses to get up to the plantation due to the narrow roads - this was a hardship for those with walkers, etc. and plantation has uneven grounds and steps, so beware. Read Less
