TripAdvisor Review (February 2018)
"A trusted friend suggested this to us, and I cannot thank him enough for the tip. From making the reservation to meeting at the port, to the tour itself the experience was excellent. Sanya and Shirley took great care with the group (13 total, 4 in our party). Beyond the educational aspects and the tastings - all of which were fabulous - the ladies demonstrated concern for our comfort and safety throughout the walk. If seeking an authentic look into the local culture and history - and of course some tasty bites - we highly recommend this to anyone with good walking shoes and an appetite. Great job Jamaica Culinary Tours!"
