IMHO: No, it is not time well spent in a vehicle for four hours. We just came back on the Conquest and did the four hour round-trip to YS Falls over the mountain and along the south coast and back. The only saving grace was our tour guide and operator who made the trip informative and quite fun since we all wanted to experience some local culture and food which we did, but for most of us 14 people who went, YS is not worth the drive. We were on a private group tour for seven hours from 9 am- 4 pm. My thoughts are that you should really want to go see the "far-away attraction" enought to spend more than half your day in a vehicle. If you're good with that, then have a great time because it will probably be worth it. If that makes you hesitate, then stick to things in and around Mo Bay. BTW, our tour operator is based out of Ocho and she came to Mo Bay, no problem!
I wrote a tour review and it's listed under "1st time to Jamaica" thread.
I thought the canopy tours had to be booked through the cruise line?
