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

This was fantastic. Stone man took us around and gave us a great insight into Trench Town, the music and the community. He was so lovely with my Mum and made sure she was looked after at all times. Listening to Livin Kulcha sing live was the icing on the cake. A great tour and thoroughly recommend.

We visited the TTCY a couple of days ago, and were pleased we went but found it a bit surreal. We opted for the middle tour, $2000 each. It was supposed to last 90 mins + but we seemed to be all done in less than an hour. The museum was a few rooms with pictures. Highlight was his first... More

While the house Bob Marley ended up in is interesting if you're a fan, and especially if you want to see lots of gold and platinum disks etc. the Culture yard feels a lot more important and authentic. Here you really get a sense of the early life of Bob, and for many other poor Jamaicans - and of course,... More
