This is an incredible tour not to be missed if you are a fan of music. Karen was great and clear with communication throughout the planning process. Our driver, Wayne, was knowledgeable, fun, and safe. He picked us up from our hotel in Ocho Rios. The drive there is through some countryside, which was beautiful and interesting to see. Our guide, Courtney, met us in Kingston -- he is a musician and poet, was also incredible and a wealth of knowledge. This is a professional tour that really gives you more insight into Kingston, Trench Town, Jamaican music history, and Jamaican culture. We went to Emancipation Park, learned about the history of freedom fighters, ate patties, went to the Bob Marley Museum (which had a separate great guide), visited Rockers Records, and went to the Trench Town Culture Yard. The guide at the Trench Town Culture Yard also knew a ton and it would be great if they could get more resources. This is a great way to be able to get out of a resort and explore Kingston even if you are unfamiliar with the area.

Karen made the logistics easy and was very organized. Wayne was our driver and gave us a ton of history about Ocho Rios, Kingston, and Jamaica overall. We even stopped for fresh coconuts and sugar cane! Our guide in Kingston, was Courtney, and he was very nice and also knew a ton of Jamaican history. Ask him about his poetry!

We have all heard Trench Town mentioned in Reggae, so it was a must see if I was going to Jamaica. We also went to Rockers Records and got the breakdown of music and saw all the old albums they still have. Emancipation Park was really nice. It has so much Jamaican history, told by sculptures lined up throughout the park.

And the highlight for me was the Bob Marley Museum. You learn so much about his life, music, and purpose.

You will not be disappointed with this tour!

Amazing day exploring the music and culture in Kingston. Great to get away from our resort in Ocho Rios to see more of the Jamaican culture.

Our driver Dwayne was really friendly and great all day. Karen did a great job organising the day and making sure everything ran smoothly.

Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in Ska and Reggae!

Our excursion to Kingston, provided by Jamaica Cultural-Enterprises, was easily the high point of our week in Jamaica. We were staying in Ocho Rios and Karen drove out, picked us up, gave us a tour that couldn't be beat, and drove us back to our hotel. We were pretty much only interested in reggae history and Karen went above and beyond providing sights and people to meet for that aspect of Kingston. We started at the Bob Marley Museum and went from there. I even got to meet the Mighty Diamonds, a 70s reggae band that was one of my favorites back then, and watch them practice for an upcoming show! Karen was friendly and full of information and I can't recommend her highly enough. Our trip to Jamaica would have really been lacking without this tour.
