Our day trip from Montego Bay to Kingston was great! Our purpose was to get a better idea of the island of Jamaica as this was our first visit. We were picked up at our resort shortly after six AM by our driver, Garfield. He was great. He informed us of interesting facts along the route which provided a segway to information about Jamaica which he provided as we drove. The drive over the Blue Mountains included great vistas of the local terrain, and at various points, views of local small villages.

The drive through the city of Kingston took us through the port district, the business district, and a drive through the Jamaican Beverley Hills. From there we drove through the university grounds before arriving at the home of Bob Marley. Our tour of the house was interesting and provide another glimpse of Jamaican heritage and culture. A quick lunch at a local food fair and an ice cream at Devon House completed the tour.

The trip back over the Blue Mountains was quiet, but again offered similar vistas as the morning trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to gain a little more knowledge of the island.

This is a fantastic tour that should be number 1 on everyones list. Don't listen to anything you have heard about Kingston. It is a wonderful place to visit and nice people to meet.
Although, the other people on the tour who booked directly with JTL paid the same price as us and theirs included the admission to the Bob Marley museum. Also, we ate at a mall in Kingston and not at the Presidential House like it was stated.

My wife and I were very pleased with our scenic tour of Kingston with Viator. Our guide Carol was most helpful and as we had a small number on our coach we were able to have some flexibility as to where we spent our time.
It was a long day , but the coach was on time to pick us up 5.45 am ! and we felt we had good value from the experience.

I had a wonderful time driving down to Kingston from Montego Bay, 3.5 hours! I was the only one on the tour, so I had my very on driver and tour guide! We were like family by the time I made it back to the resort. I had the best jerk chicken served up in a ball of aluminum foil and the best ice cream, just two of the many stops we made. The trip ended at the Bob Marley museum, great trip!
