This cultural immersion into Jamaica will have you experience the island’s history, culture and cuisine like a local during this comprehensive tour. Travel by air-conditioned bus through Montego Bay’s city center, passing the Old Fort Craft Park where local vendors sell their handicrafts and see the cannons set up by the British to guard the town back in the early 1700s.
You will stop to visit Montego Bay’s most notable church, St. James Parish Church. Admire its 18th century sculptures, ornate stained glass window, and memorial plaques dedicated to local dignitaries. Next, you’ll board the bus and drive to Mt. Olive Basic School where a vibrant group of young children are eagerly waiting to sing you a collection of folk songs and introduce you to their rural Jamaican culture.
After the touching concert, you will go to John’s Hall Plantation for a typical Jamaican meal. At the plantation, you will explore the farm alongside an informative guide. During a nature walk you'll also enjoy a welcoming sip of coconut water before strolling over to the bird-feeding sanctuary. At the onsite restaurant, delight in the Jamaican buffet lunch. Going to a new place has the power to change you, but on this tour you can also change a place for better.
