Once a sugar plantation owned by John Tharpe, Jamaica's largest slave and plantation owner, this impressive colonial-style estate is now an elaborate park dedicated to exploring the region's natural and cultural heritage. Good Hope Estate provides visitors with a unique perspective on Jamaican culture. In addition to the plethora of adventure activities, you will also have an opportunity to explore the grounds and facilities as well as sample and buy local products such as coffee, rum and jerk seasoning. If you're lucky, you many even get to meet resident artist and master potter David Pinto.

This 'off the beaten path' location was wonderful. The high tea provided was enjoyable. There are many water sports to do in the nearby area. The views were magnificent. This was a booked tour for me and I highly recommend it.

We toured the Great House of the Goodhope Plantation android was in awe of the history that had been maintained in this great home. Our guide was very informative, and friendly. We left these beautiful grounds with a much richer knowledge of the history of Jamaica.

We had a slight reservation mishap, but the front desk management quickly resolved our issue and had us on our way immediately. They... More

Did the river tubing. Very pretty and informative. Guide JJ was great. We had a monsoon rainstorm and had to take cover in the quaint little bar back at plantation. Lodion Mason the adorable bartender took great care of us. Grounds were beautiful

This was the most fun and most genuine excursion of our cruise. Everyone was so nice and very entertaining especially our zipline tour guides CJ, Corey, Krystal, and Fabian. The food and rum were amazing and better than our ship food. Will definitely come back again.

We did all the activities - the zip line was great, the ATVs very good (make sure they are available); and the River experience (slow and relaxing tubing), Guided Tour of the Great House and Appleton estate Rum Tasting were fine. An added bonus was the... More

We did zip line, bird aviary, river tubing, and obstacle course. My son is 8, so it was the perfect place for him. He did the obstacles course 1 and a half times, and would have gone again if I wasn't ready to head back to the ship. I did not try the lunch, it was my bad for not... More
