  • Really solid tournof what trenchtown once was and what it has done for the world as far as creating and facilitating these amazing artists. The tour is great, then the street tour is awesome, although kind of sketchy at 1st. You quickly relax as the tour guides roll up spiff after spiff and ease you into good vibes... and grab a smoothie from them on the way out
  • Great tour. Highly recommended. A very well done event. You get to peek into the lives and history of not just Bob Marley but all of Jamaica reggae great forerunners. We felt no pressure either on this tour.
  • It was knowledgable l learn the origin of the name Trench Town and how the mother of The late Bob Marley came to the place/ community of Trench Town.
  • It was very scenic , I get some real rasta man styled roast fishes
  • This is a great place to really see and feel the origins of the music, and it's culture, plus the ongoing nature of both. A must-do.
