from MONTEGO BAY Pier: The Great Houses of Montego Bay Tour


Shore Excursion Description

On leaving the Cruise ship pier, drive on the high-level road for a picturesque view of the ocean, International Airport and the surroundings of Montego Bay.  This tour takes you to Greenwood Great House and the famous Rose Hall Great House, which was once home to the wicked ‘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.

Leaving Rose Hall Great House, the tour continues into the beautiful countryside. 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; a complimentary rum punch or fruit drink is served.
After this delightful and informative tour, return to the ship via 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. A stop will be made at the Craft Market for shopping before returning to the ship.
