‪A well-preserved great house with history and views in the bargain‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪A devoted and highly informed guide takes you through both a well-preserved masterpiece of colonial architecture and a slice of Jamaican history. Wonderful view of Falmouth and the sea beyond.‬

‪The correct name of this attraction should be Greenwood Great House Museum‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪Jamaica's huge sugar plantations of the past were owned by wealthy families who lived in "Great Houses" and served by slaves until slavery was abolished in 1838. Many of the slaves remained as employees, but emancipation began the decline of this lifestyle. This Great House was founded by the wealthy Barrett family. They spared no expense in establishing a home with all of the comforts including exquisite art, a variety of musical instruments, fine furnishings, and a view of Montego Bay without rival. We were given a wonderful tour by Jenny who has celebrated her 42nd year sharing the history of this family and their home. We asked her more than once if there were "duppies", the Jamaican name for ghosts, and she assured us everything we saw and felt was real! ‬

‪Wonderful Visit to Greenwood Great House‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪Very interesting tour of a historic house. Many antiques, some dating back to the 1700's. This great house was unique in that it was spared from damage during the countrywide slave revolts of the mid-1800's. It did not have the feel of a "tourist destination"; it felt quite authentic. We visited on a day when there were no cruise ships in Montego Bay, so we had the entire estate to ourselves. The tour guide was knowlegeable and gave a good tour. Super views of the coastline below.‬

‪A slice of colonial history of Jamaica‬
דצמ׳ 2019
‪Husband, daughter (young adult) and I love history and architecture and the tour of Greenwood Great House was a fascinating glimpse of colonial Jamaica. Thora is a wonderful guide, extremely knowledgeable and gracious. Beautiful rooms and historical items but also items and stories from the darker side of the slave era. The road up to the house sets the scene and the view is magnificent. A must see!‬

‪We really enjoyed our trip to Greenwood great house we had an in depth tour of the property that gave us an insight into the history of the house. There are lots of well preserved antique furniture pieces in this house which was lovely to see. A good alternative to the more touristy Rose Wood!‬

‪Hidden gem!‬
ינו׳ 2020
‪Went there on a cruise excursion, it was absolutely amazing. Carefully restored, very genuine and authentic. Chock full of originals from the 16th and 17th centuries, it really gives the feel of back in the day. The tour guides are excellent and the owner who has lived in the house for over 40 years is a delight to talk to.‬

‪Great find hidden away‬
דצמ׳ 2019
‪Owner occupied, open to public. Excellent local guide, very knowledgeable. House full of antiques, discarded items found on the property from slave days. Beautiful view from second floor balcony. You need to know where to find this gem, it's in a neighborhood off the main highway. We had a private tour; only visitors there.‬

‪Amazing tour by Thora!!‬
נוב׳ 2019 • משפחה
‪We just visited Greenwood and our guide was the lovely Thora. She was exceptional and kind. She remembers every single historic detail and explains it with precision and excitement. I highly recommend this visit which helped us learn more about Jamaican history and the history of slavery in general. ‬
