We booked the Turtle River Falls and Aviary tour through Jaital tours for a recent cruise stop in Ocho Rios. We chose this tour because we wanted to avoid the crowds at Dunns River Falls. Our taxi driver picked us up at Oceans 11 and paid the admission when we got to there. Our tour guide was waiting at the... More

I booked this as an excursion through Yardie's Tours. While Dunn River Falls is considered the "must see" excursion, I wanted to avoid tourist traps. Based on Yardie's description, I thought it was be a self guided excursion (I guess it was outdated since it was called enchanted gardens and not the new name) While the site was breathtaking, I...

We absolutely loved this tour! We arrived around 9 and the gardens were just ours! We had Jordan as our tour guide and he was the best! He answered all our questions and made it fun for us and our little ones. It is absolutely beautiful and so quiet. If you want to go to some falls but not the... More

Its perfect for those that want pictures by the lime stone falls but with steps and walkways to get up to them. The Bird aviary had different types of birds where you could feed them, some would sit on your shoulders or the small ones would eat from your hand. 'Micheal' Jordan made the tour very entertaining. Our driver and... More

Wow! We had a wonderful time there. The guides were kind, funny, smart, we couldn't have asked for better. We held birds and they ate out of our hands, even a giant Macaw. Climbing up and down the falls was invigorating, safe and fun! And, there was a photographer who came along with us to capture the moments. There was... More

If you are big on nature, then this is a definite stop for you! My cousin and I are two big nature lovers so we had a grand time exploring the grounds of Turtle River Falls. We didn't care for the pool because the place had too many wonderful scenes that captured our attention. The garden was lovely with all... More
