What you'll do

Our tour helps you to experience authentic daily life from a Jamaican point of view. Damion is your guide. He grew up in the ghetto and understands the local life, side streets and hidden gems. We meet at Historic Devon House (home of the first black millionaire) from there we take a short walk to Half-way Tree transportation hub where we hop on a local bus loaded with vibes and all locals! Our first stop is Liberty Hall where you will discover more about Marcus Garvey and why he is an important figure in shaping the country. Weaving through side streets we get a real feel for garrison (ghetto) life and then visit an inner city food co-op that is helping locals grow fresh produce and eat right. The Rastafarian "Ital is Vital" food philosophy is described and where many visitors choose to try the local fare. From here we take a local taxi, another great experience, to Trenchtown including the Cultural Yard. This is where Bob Marley lived and the birth place of Reggae Music. After you tour the site you can enjoy the Yard with local storytellers, who paint a picture of inner city life and the importance of music in the culture. An authentic experience you will never forget!
