Cosa farete

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 Local authorized taxi. 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!
Record studios can also be explored. Your guide will give you this option at the beginning of the tour.
Other things to note
Your guide will do everything to ensure you see and meet local people in a safe and secure manner!
If you enjoy your tour PLEASE consider tipping the guide. This is his primary source of income!

Dove ti troverai

We take local transportation (bus and route taxi) to help get you into how locals experience life daily. In addition, walking to some destinations is what makes this tour interesting as this is where Damion grew up and he shares his stories. Side streets introduce you to public art, murals, and Rastafarian’s helping to revive the inner city thru growing and preparing ital food.

This experience is truly one of a kind. Damian showed us the real authentic Jamaica. He was very considerate and ensures your safety. He also went out of his way to link with us the next day to ensure we got the full experience (since covid restriction curfew cut our day short). There are too many highlights to list but I have to say cutting a dub plate live in studio would have to be one that stands out. This is the one experience you HAVE to do while in JA. 🇯🇲❤️

I truly enjoyed this Kingston Tour! It was a great being able to see sites and go through the various neighborhoods, interact and socialize with locals and experience history and learn things I didn’t when it comes to Rastafari! Damien is a dope tour guide he made the tour fun and entertaining, he is a down to earth laid back brethren, he customizes the tours to your liking to ensure you have great time and get the best experience. This is the best tour to do when in Kingston, you get to explore Real Jamaica! Jamrock!

I joined this tour less than an hour after I landed in Jamaica, and it was a beautiful introduction to Kingston and island culture. Damion customized the tour so I could experience as much food as possible and expertly guided us Downtown. I felt 100% safe and welcome at all times and would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience real Jamaica.

I really don’t consider myself the type of traveller who books tours, often enjoying the challenge of finding things for myself but having booked a trip to Jamaica with my husband I found myself travelling alone with our son as my husband died suddenly and I was not feeling as confident as I once did. Kym was very sympathetic and kind as was Damion when we met him. In fact he was amazing. He took the time to find out what would make the tour the best it could be for us and it exceeded all expectations and lasted 8 hrs. We hooked up again the following day for a trip to Lime Key just relaxing and hanging out on the beach. Two very different days but two totally perfect days. If I could give more than 10 out of 10 then I would.

Unique personal insight into Jamaican downtown. Would never have been able to experience any of this by ourselves and had a full afternoon of a 100% personalised tour. Damien was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun, inspiring and extremely safe. I’d recommend this tour to all of my friends, as it’s great value for money and unforgettable. We rarely take tours but wanted to experience the ‘real’ downtown Kingston and meet some local people to learn their stories. We went into tour nervous of downtown but went away with a changed perspective, with knowledge that Kingston is not only safe for tourists, but one of the friendliest cities once you’re shown around.
