Falmouth City Tour Excursion Reviews

Quaint Falmouth was an economic powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. In today's Falmouth, visitors still enjoy 19th-century Georgian architecture as well as arts and crafts shopping, flavorful local fare and horse-and-buggy rides. Falmouth is the gateway to the best Jamaica has to offer.

An hour long trolley tour was excellent value with a wonderful guide who provided excellent tidbits on the local area. There were a few stops a long the way and we were given ample time to look around.

. I had a heck of a time deciding what to do here. Most of the excursions are a long bus ride and many of them we had done before. I finally found Jamaica Culinary Tours here on Cruise Critic. It was outstanding! Our tour guide, Steve, met us inside the port. My four were joined by another couple and we set out. Some of the others in our family had tried to go out and walk around without a guide, but were constantly surrounded by people wanting to sell them something, braid their hair, take them in a taxi, etc. Because we had a guide that didn't happen to our group. Steve knew a lot of the people we saw and introduced us to many of them. We learned about the history of the area from the Taino natives to the slave and sugar trade to the Georgian architecture. We also stopped at street stalls for fresh fruit and sugar cane, coconut water and coconut, beef pattys (which are like an empanada or pasty,) we also had jerked chicken at Pepper's, and finished up with cookies in a lovely garden. The walking wasn't bad, you'd walk a few blocks then stop to eat something or stop to talk about a building or event. Really, really well done. I would do this again in a heartbeat! Read Less

This tour needed more attractions. He told us about Bob Marly's birth and buriel, but did not go down to show us. This tour had alot of driving with little scenic interactions. The lunch place was great, but food disappointing.

The tour was ok. The tour guide was great, I wish we had spent more time at the beach, instead of being on the road. The rainforest did not impress me nor the mandatory stop at the sourenier shop.

We got on a bus at about 930 and we were on the bus more than sightseeing. we drove for about 45 min before we stopped any place . we stopped at a beautiful little church , an overlook which was very pretty, a store to shop in, and the beach. Our guide was good about telling us information about the area, which helped make it a little more interesting, but I thought we were going to stop ay more places of interest. When we finally got to the beach, our guide tried to tell us where to sit, in these chairs that were all in the shade. I nicely told her I would be over in the sun and she didn't seem to like that but she was ok after that. The tour was only 39.00 each and its a good thing I didn't pay more than that because I would have been irritated if I had for what we got. Read Less

We took the sky explorer chair lift to the top of Mystic Mountain where we had time to look around at the displays, watch the dancing, visit the hummingbird gardens and make use of the pool. It was a rainy day which did not lend itself for enjoying the beautiful pool with an awesome view of the cruise port. On a hot sunny day this would have been the best part of being at the top. We then went to Konoko Falls to climb them with a guide and then we had a guided tour around the gardens and small zoo. We finished up with a jerk chicken and pork lunch which was provided in the excursion price. We were frustrated with the lack of communication from our driver and excursion leader at each venue. They never outlined what we were to expect which has been the norm on other excursions I have been on. We always had to ask. Also, after climbing Konoko falls (which were beautiful) we were not given the opportunity or time to get our towels or cover up clothes from the van before the garden tour, zoo tour and lunch. On a hot sunny day this probably would have been fine, but it was a rainy day and by the end of our time there I was quite cold from being in my wet bathing suit for a period of time. Other than that I highly recommend this tour. An added bonus was that our ship was detoured for docking on Ocho Rios which meant little driving time to the attractions. From Falmouth we would have spent a significant portion of our day driving to and from the attractions which are located right in Ocho Rios. Read Less
