We spent a day sailing with Carolyn and Harry last week and had a great time. They picked us up in front of our resort, took us to the boat, sailed all morning, fixed us a great lunch, and sailed the rest of the afternoon. They were delightful company and made us feel perfectly at home. What a great day!

We emailed with Carolyn who was quick and informative. We scheduled two tours with Barrett Adventures and we're lucky enough to have Loxley as our guide each day. We went ziplining in the mountains and did a trip to Negril beach and Ricks Cafe. He was fun to talk to, full of local knowledge, and accommodated all requests. He took... More

I have been working with Carolyn for over 7 years for my guests. There has been nothing less than Wow factors on all of her tours. If you want to have an experience that is away from the crowds with a very high level of customer service Barrett Tours is the way to go. l

We got to go snorkeling and hang out on the boat for the day, which also included an amazing lunch that they provided! Such a special thing to do on our honeymoon!! We really enjoyed getting to hear all about her interesting... More

Our plan was to eat a great local breakfast, climb Dunn's River Falls, and then squeeze as much into the rest of our day as possible, including eating local whenever we could. We made arrangements with Carolyn over email, who was very accommodating and let us put a deposit down using PayPal. Richard Woolary picked us up at our resort... More

We booked 2 trips with Barrett Adventures via email a few weeks before we arrived in Jamaica. Carolyn was always very quick to reply to my messages and queries, offering advice for the days. Our first trip was arranged for Monday, unfortunately our son fell ill on Saturday with a tummy bug, by Sunday he was still very weak and... More

Me and my husband were on a cruise and one of the stops was Jamaica. After spending many hours here on tripadvisor looking up the different excursions offered and the many different companies I decided to book with Barrett Adventures. (Thanks to everyone who writes reviews, it helps so much!) Now back to my review, I booked the secret falls/... More

I spent 6 nights in Jamaica with my wife for our honeymoon. In the weeks leading up to our trip I exchanged almost 60 emails with Carolyn as we figured out the itinerary for the trip. We ended up doing: the Old Tavern Estate, snorkeling on the lark, the private horseback tour at Braco stables, and a couple other things... More
