I highly recommend this magical place. The people, the cooking demonstration and four course dinner, and the farm are unlike any other tour you may experience in Jamaica.

Made the excursion to Zimbali for the cooking show while staying in Negril. It was a splurge but it was beautiful, we met some great folks, had a wonderful and entertaining meal and left talking about the next time we could visit.

I am not sure if they have pricing for children since we had all adults. The bus was included except for the tip for the driver.

Description
FOODIES- Rise Up -This Tour is for you! Zimbali's "Farm to Table" Cooking Tour is more than just a Meal- it's an Experience! Only 20 minute from Negril, this 5 Star* Mountain Retreat + 7 acre Organic Farm is one of the most unique places in Jamaica. Come Tour the Farm, Tasting and Picking the Foods & Fruits of the Season. Then Return to the specially design Mountain Cooking Studio for an Authentic Demonstration that is Unrivaled in Jamaica. We offer either lunch or dinner tours Monday- Saturday (Groups of 6 or more can book Sunday as well). The 4 course lunch is $50/person and the 5 course dinner is $60/person. We also offer round trip transport from anywhere in Negril for an extra $15/person- which makes the totals $65 and $75/person respectively :) Wednesday dinners are special as we have our African drummers perform. The cost is an extra 10$/person and the show is amazing ;) The tour begins with a Zimbali greeting & introduction while sipping a freshly made fruit juice. Then Uncle "Fudd", our farm manager, leads a tour of the farm after which its back to the cooking studio for a fun filled cooking demonstration. Both lunch and dinner consist of: 2 appetizers, main course and dessert and come with a bottle of wine/couple- dinner adds a soup course as well. There is a choice in main course dishes between: fish, shrimp, chicken or vegan/vegetarian- Gluten free is a welcome option as well. The pickup times are 10:30am for the lunch tour and 4:00pm for the dinner tour. A reservation is mandatory as we do limit our tours to 20 people. All we need to know for a reservation is: day, time, # of people + name and what hotel you are staying. Zimbali Requires a 50% deposit for reservations more than 2 weeks out and we accept Visa/Mastercard or Paypal. Don't be afraid to dress casual and wear or bring tennis shoes for the farm tour ;)
