Delve into the sights, history and spirit of Jamaica’s capital of Kingston on this full-day trip from Montego Bay. Travel past lush plantations, mountains and the tropical foliage canopies of Fern Gully to this laid-back city fringed by the misty Blue Mountains and a beautiful bay. See its colonial landmarks and bustling street markets, visit the Bob Marley Museum, once home to the great reggae musician; and admire Devon House, an opulent monument to 19th-century Jamaica. The tour includes time for an enticing lunch (own expense) at Devon House.
Start with a pickup from your Montego Bay hotel. Board your air-conditioned coach or minivan and pass lush plantations, rickety villages and verdant countryside on route to Kingston.

Drive through Fern Gully, a 3-mile (5-kilometer) road where giant ferns create a luxuriant canopy of tropical greenery. Follow winding roads up the forested Mount Diablo and admire the panoramic island views from its summit.

Arrive in Kingston, set between the hazy peaks of the Blue Mountains and a vast natural harbor. Learn how the city is effectively split into a gritty Downtown of street markets and colonial-era buildings, and a commercial Uptown district.

Enjoy a sightseeing drive around top Kingston attractions and learn about the city’s history and role in Jamaica’s ebullient spirit and culture. See the historic buildings and Simon Bolivar statue in Downtown, and watch the locals go about their routines in the colorful street markets.

Stop at Devon House, a palatial mansion built by Jamaica’s first black millionaire in 1881. Tour (own expense) the opulent interiors of this grand house and break for lunch (own expense) at its courtyard restaurant.

Drive through the University of West Indies’ campus and visit the Bob Marley Museum, sited in the musician’s former home on Hope Street. Take a guided tour (own expense) of the simple rooms that chart his life with gold records, statues and memorabilia.

When the time comes, enjoy the scenic drive back to Montego Bay, where a hotel drop-off ends your trip.

Please note: the order of activities as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.
