This half-day tour will take you to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary and to tourist highlights in Montego Bay including Sam Sharp Square, Saint James Parish Church, Richmond Hill Great House and hip-strip shopping.
Your professional and knowledgeable guide will meet you in the lobby of your Montego Bay or Grand Palladium hotel. The first stop on this tour will be at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary in the hills of Anchovy for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The birds (about 15 different species) will be waiting eagerly for you to put out a finger for them to perch and to feed them nectar from a bottle. See many species of birds such as the Jamaican Oriole, The Doctor Bird (national bird of Jamaica), White Winged Dove, Finches, and more! Please note that these birds are not caged, they are wild birds that just come to the sanctuary during the day to feed. After about 1 hour with the birds, the bird keeper will take you on a short walk in the woods, pointing out various local trees and plants. You might just see a Barn Owl sleeping somewhere between the sticks! This is truly a nature lover's dream tour.
After the tour you will be taken to downtown Montego Bay where you will visit historic sites starting at Sam Sharp Square. Next, you will visit the St James Parish Church which was built in 1775 and still fully functional. From there you will go to the Richmond Hill Great House which was built in 1804 and is situated on top of a hill in the center of town. From the house you get a full panoramic view of the entire city of Montego Bay. If you want to go inside the Richmond Hill Great House simply purchase the USD$2.00 ticket and take the tour.
After visiting the Richmond Hill Great House you will be taken to the popular "Hip-Strip" for some shopping. After shopping, your bus will return you to your Montego Bay or Grand Palladium hotel.
