This tour far exceeded our expectation. We learned all the Jamaican history they never taught us - and I went to one of their best schools. Karen is remarkable - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and eager to share her information, making the event interesting and exciting. The tour gives a pretty complete look at the society, back then and now, from the university at the top of the heap to Trench Town, home to the bottom of the heap AND ...home to popular musical genres, musicians and poets who are household names worldwide! Another highlight was Heroes Park and the changing of the guard. The tour ended with delicious, huge scoops of Devon House ice cream, and was easily the highlight of our island visit. We felt we had nourished our brains, senses and taste buds! Don't miss it!
The nice tour, especially of the Bob Marley House in Trench Town. The tour guide was prompt and very welcoming. She was very flexible and took us to see an unplanned site when another was closed. Thank you! We even had some mangoes from the trees in Bob's yard!!! I had a very wonderful experience. I wish they had some literature available at Bob's house for free or even a minimal fee would have been okay. But we couln't take pictures inside and nothing to walk away with. Excellent tour.
The tour guide Karen H. is fantastic! I was the only one who signed up for this tour given the school start and travel season ending that day. Unlike most other companies who overcharge or cancel for solo travelers, Karen in fact ended up doing a personal tour. She is extremely knowledgeable and shared tons of historical and cultural information. I had tons of questions and she made a point to answer every single one of them. You can see she is passionate about what she does and ensures you have a great experience. I highly recommend this tour! Karen, you rock!!!
