What You Can Expect
The tour takes you through the Beverly Hills of Jamaica, with views of the properties belonging to affluent Jamaicans along the hillside. Next, it's on to the University of the West Indies, Mona, the first of three campuses established in 1948 to meet the educational needs of the Caribbean.
Then, what better time and place to enjoy the history of reggae than at the great Bob Marley Museum. The museum is housed in the former home of the late Robert Nesta Marley. You'll see educational and entertaining displays tracking the life and accomplishments of the world-renowned reggae superstar.
Your final stop is Devon House, known as Millionaire's Corner during the boom of the 19th century. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to buy lunch at the grog shop, explore the historic mansion, drop into the ice-cream parlor, other restaurants and craft shops and visit the African museum before returning to Ocho Rios.
My husband and I highly enjoyed our trip to Kingston and the Bob Marley Museum. Fluffy was our tour guide and Earl our driver. They both made the trip enjoyable - Fluffy is very funny!
My only drawback is that if you suffer from motion sickness - take extra medicine well before your trip starts so it has time to be effective. The ride is like being on a roller coaster! I felt ill pretty much the whole way to Kingston but took extra on the way back and felt much better. Also, I wouldn't advise sitting near the front of the van either! The drivers and roads in Jamaica can be a bit scary but Earl had us under control :).
The Bob Marley Museum was interesting. I am not a huge fan but my husband is and enjoyed himself. We are from Baltimore and my husband found a ticket stub from a DC concert event so that was interesting. I did learn a lot that I really had no clue about. The guide at the museum was very nice.
Lunch was ok - I was still not feeling too well from the road trip. We ended up eating at KFC but there were a lot of choices and you had time to shop if you wanted to.
Ice cream at the Devon House was yummy and you get a lot - I got a one scoop and it was more than I could handle.
All in all - wonderful day. Got to see a lot of Jamaica and had fun doing it.
Thanks for a good trip! We had heard a lot about going to Kingston but we were safe all day and nothing to worry about!
It was an excellent tour. A day packed full and the tour guide was delightful :)
