Default Dunn's River Falls

On January 2, 2002, we will call at Ocho Rios, Jamaica with the "Voyager of the Seas". I have been there 2 years ago with the "Carnival Destiny". Then, I took the organized tour to "Fern Gully" and "Dunn's River Falls" and on of the shopping malls. Since I don't care for shopping, I thought, this time I might try an independent tour operator or just hire a cab. However, since I experienced, how pushy the locals can be, I'm a bit reluctant.

Could someone recommend an independent tour operator, which might be a bit less expensive than the ship's tour, but still offers good service? Since I liked the excursion drive through the fern gully, I would like to combine this again with Dunn's River Falls, just leave the shopping trip aside.

How about just renting a taxi?

Any input is much appreciated!

Best regards,

Hi Marc,
You may want to check Port Pormotions and see what they can do for you. I agree with you, didn't care for fern gulley or the shopping there, this may be better, good luck.

Definitely do Peat Taylor; he was wonderful! He'll combine different groups on his bus, but will take you shopping or the beach or the ship the last hour. He even sings, and is very friendly and informative.
