As part of our city tour, we stopped at Trench Town, signed in and followed head guide Sophie through a 1st and 2nd street tour. Especially enjoyed the Rasta greeting area - had time for a Red Stripe - and the life size Bob Marley statue for pictures. Sophie showed us through some back alleys to see the run down... More

Best part of our trip, really got the feel of how different musicians would have got together & inspired one another. Visited Bob Marley's house too, which was also good but this place was less commercial & really gave an authentic feel. Very interesting history of housing development at the time. A jam session was happening later on in the... More

I was really happy to be going to Trenchtown as I really wanted to see the old VW splitscreen camper van that Bob used to drive. It's there in the yard all fallen to bits but probably worth a lot of money! A girl who lived in trenchtown took us round. Before we went in our tour guide warned us... More

Visited the Culture Yard with Mr Eugene Nugent of Gadgepro Tours. Eugene was a fabulous guide , knew the Trenchtown area well and was able to drive us around telling us about the area and his experiences as a child. The actual Culture Yard Tour is separate and you can choose to pay for I think 3 different tours- we... More

We did the 45 minute tour this year but next year we plan on going back and doing the longer tour. To be able to see where Bob Marley spent part of life was very interesting. To see where people still live, it is eye opening. The history the guide provide is something you have to experience. There is a... More

Travelling to the Culture Yard was an experience in itself. To see the area the museum is in is an emotional journey that you can't describe or imagine without visiting. Nature was our guide, he was very informative and tour was not rushed. There are a few different tours available, ours was included in our Kingston tour so I am... More
