I went to Jamaica with my sister for my 60th birthday and she has used Carolyn's services every time she went so of course we employed her services to take us out to Floyd's Pelican Bar. What a memorial experience! Carolyn not only chaperoned us, she narrated the history of Jamaica on the ride there! What a great experience! I... More

This was our 1st trip to Jamaica and I must admit that we were very nervous. All of our concerns and stress melted away as soon as we met our guide Carolyn Barrett sitting in a tree reading a book! She is warm, funny and was ready for us. Her husband was there with a van and took us all... More

Do not hesitate to book Carolyn Barrett and Barrett Adventures. Our driver, RIchard Woolery, was fantastic and a great guide. Stopped for us to experience a roadside fish stand, special ginger beer and scenic overlooks. He drove us over to the Pelican Bar and back, plus arranged for our boat transportation,too. So glad to have found them!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a great time scheduling with this company for a cruise excursion. Some things to keep in mind - since this was outside of what the cruise ship offered, you are on your own if you get back to the ship late. The company was aware of this and kept us on time, albeit we returned with just minutes... More

Carolyn was super helpful in the beginning with all of my questions, then I must have mistakenly clicked one too many times when I was booking and booked one more person than we had. She immediately refunded my amount. Our driver was Richard and we spent the day with him and he was fantastic and we enjoyed having him! He... More

Carolyn Barrett took us on an amazing trip from Montego Bay to Kingston, Old Tavern Coffee Estate and Strawberry Hill. Her easy going demeanor, patience, knowledge of Jamaican History and Geography and friendships with local business made for an incomparable trip.

I booked four excursions with Barrett Adventures and so happy that I made that decision! When we go back I plan to book with Miss Carolyn for everything! The drivers were on time, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and yes they were also crazy Jamaican drivers! For our 1st tour my girls (17 and 12) and I went on the snorkel trip,... More

Carolyn and her crew really enjoy showing people around. This was our second excursion with her and every time was different. By that I mean not your standard tour. We went all around the island in every Parish and every day we looked forward to Carolyn's wealth of knowledge and drive to show us around. We went to Port Royal,... More

We used Barrett tours for several trips and had an outstanding time on both of them. Carolyn Barrett is an expert on Jamaican history, and is incredibly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Jamaica as well. The highlight of our trip was a Barrett tour into the Blue Mountains to the Old Tavern Coffee Estate. David Twyman is a... More
