If you’ve stayed in Jamaica’s resort hubs of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios but you still haven’t yet seen the irie isle’s capital, Kingston, one company wants to fix that.
Beginning this month, Island Routes will operate a new Kingston cultural tour that will whisk visitors via air-conditioned WI-FI-enabled buses from Mo’Bay and Ochi to see some of the capital’s highlights, including Emancipation Park, The National Gallery, the Bob Marley Museum, and Devon House, the former home of Jamaica’s first black millionaire.
The tour, led by expert local guides, has been facilitated by the recent completion of Jamaica’s 140-mile north-south highway, which has reduced driving time from Montego Bay to Kingston to approximately two hours.
“Just like a number of people in our team, I am from Kingston,” said Island Routes’ CEO, Adam Stewart. “So it made complete sense to take advantage of our insider knowledge and develop a Kingston highlight tour exploring the same local spots we grew up surrounded by.”
This is the company’s second Kingston tour; it currently operates the Bob Marley and Kingston Highlight tour from Ocho Rios.
