The Great Houses of Montego Bay Tours
On leaving the Cruise ship pier, wend our way through the hustle and bustle on a scenic drive into the beautiful countryside, on route to Montego Bay. Here, nestled in the lush greenery is Greenwood Great House, built in 1690 by the Right Honorable Richard Barrette-Browning, for the lavish entertainment of fellow plantation owners and their guests. Here you shall see a fine collection of antiques and rare musical instruments; relax and enjoy a complimentary drink while being transported back in time through history.
Leaving Greenwood Great House, the tour continues along the coast to another popular and ‘haunted’ house, the Rose Hall Great House, which was once home to the ‘White Witch of Rose Hall’. Legend has it that the ‘White Witch’ Annie Palmer murdered her three husbands and numerous slaves who worked the surrounding plantation, before she in turn was murdered in 1831, by one of her lovers – a cunning slave who decided to exact revenge on her. You will learn more about this chilling tale during the tour.
After this delightful and informative tour, visit our main tourist area — Gloucester Avenue, popularly known as the ‘Hip Strip’, with landmarks such as the Casa Blanca Hotel – one of the first hotels in Montego Bay – and Doctor’s Cave Beach, once the playground for the rich and famous. Visit Margaritaville, enjoy one of the world’s most famous bars, or spend some time shopping before returning to your ship.
