Travel through the Titchfield Hill area, famous for its Georgian architecture and its maritime views of Navy Island. Errol Flynn purchased the island in the 1940s. Port Antonio's Jamaica Reef Hotel -- now in ruins -- was also owned by the actor.

A panoramic drive takes you past Folly Estate, built by heiress Annie Olivia Tiffany, and your guide will point out Monkey Island. The latter is three acres of dense woodland cultivated to accommodate a rare species of monkey, brought to the island by explorer Hiram Bingham after he rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1912.

The exquisite 'bottomless' blue lagoon of San San makes for amazing photos.

Returning to Port Antonio you'll have 15 minutes to take photos outside Jamaica's famous Trident Castles.

The village of Prospect offers an interesting and enticing craft market. Take a walk through the town's narrow streets, which speak to its days as a British colony. You'll also stop briefly at the Anglican church built in 1840 -- a historical architectural masterpiece.

En route back to the pier you will pass through St George village, sporting a surprising mix of European-style architecture with medieval, Tudor and Gothic touches in a complex built by a German baroness.

Please note: Minimum age is 6 years. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
