The trip we took with Barrett Adventures was so wonderful. Shawn, our guide, provided us so much information and extra touches that made the day absolutely unforgettable. He made sure we tried some coconut water, sugar cane and of course Jamaican paddies. He shared his knowledge of the area, culture and people throughout the trip which made the trip very... More

On a Carnival cruise our first port day was in Montego Bay on May 4th. After extensive research I booked a private tour through Carolyn. There were nine of us ranging from 72 to 24 years old. Upon Carolyn's advise we did the YS Falls and Black River Safari. Our guide was Shawn. He was awesome!!! He was very knowledgable... More

I found Barrett Adventures through tripadvisor and WOW, am I glad that I did! My boyfriend and I love adventure and wanted to see the Jamaica that locals see. We were able to do that and much more than we ever imagined through Barrett Adventures. I first contacted Carolyn a few weeks before our trip and she was wonderfully responsive... More

The tour we set-up with Barrett Adventures was the highlight of our trip to Montego Bay. We spent Easter Monday with our driver Shawn, who took us to Ocho Rios for our trip up Dunn’s River Falls. One of many things that impressed us about Shawn was when he said, “it’s your vacation and it’s my job to get to... More

I did a lot of research before booking a tour for our four day trip to Jamaica. i knew I wanted to see Dunn Falls but also was hoping to see something that was less commercial; which is why I opted for the Dunn Falls and Carolyn's Secret Falls. The visit to the Secret Falls was definitely one of the... More

When visiting Jamaica, many people choose tours offered by the hotel. If you don't mind being crowded into small taxis and buses with many other people, or having your schedule made for you, it may be the thing for you. I always check Trip Advisor for reviews, and all reviews regarding Barrett Adventures lead me to contact Carolyn to get... More

Setting up the trip was easy, pick up was as scheduled. It was a long drive to Port Antonio and Reach Falls but Loxley made it seem like a road trip with a friend. He seemed to know every one at each stop we made. Reach falls alone was worth the trip, my girlfriend and I were the only two... More

What a great adventure! I had made arrangements with Carolyn Barrett by email before our trip. She was really prompt and helpful with her replies. All costs were upfront and honestly handled.
