This was such a wonderful trip. I ended up being alone on the tour and it was just so special. Courtney and Karen were so organised and relaxed. They were wonderful company and just so easy to be around. They gave insightful knowledge about Jamaica and Kingston. The coffee plantation was beautiful and our guide Junior had exceptional knowledge of the process of coffee making and tasting. We stopped lunch (on my request) on the way down the mountain and the guides happily waited for me to eat and take in the views. They then offered to drop me off at the Bob Marley museum as I had expressed interest earlier in the day. This was my first day in Jamaica and it was so special. A huge thanks to Courtney and Karen!

Guide was excellent in sharing his culture, using the murals’ content to explain tasty dishes, sing lyrics to songs from famous singers, show some dance moves and give an overview of Jamaican history and pop culture. Because many of the murals are new, he’s been able to speak with the artists to get their insight. The murals themselves are colorful and vibrant. I highly recommend.

Our guide was very informative and a pleasant and interesting companion! The coffee on the sure tasted absolutely amazing. It was a lot of fun and I can recommend the tour to everyone!

The driver was waiting outside arrivals. Modern clean vehicle. Would use again.

Great activity, guides were great and knowledgeable. Would recommend.
