I am a Jamaican who has lived here all my life. I spent a number of years in nursing, but left to start my own business. I have always been passionate about Jamaica's rich and colorful history. Sharing this passion is so enjoyable—it does not even feel like work. The greatest gift I receive is the satisfaction of my guests. Tourism in Kingston and Heritage Tourism is a new interest in Jamaica, and I take pride in being among the innovators.

Today I had the pleasure of being guided by Juliet on a very knowledgeable tour via public transport. Throughout the tour she was very informative, friendly and easy to get along with, with this tour she will give you a sense of the daily life here in Kingston and St Andrew Parish, the history and knowledge learned at Liberty Hall and the Simon Bolivar centre was incredible, I highly recommend booking this experience! Also suitable for solo travellers!!

Should you want to learn about culture and history in an intimate setting, then this is for you. A history class that comes alive, something I will never forget.

Juliet curated a wonderful experience, including a delicious recommendation for lunch which ended up being the best jerk on my entire trip. From the meet-up to the bus ride to the museums, this is the best way to experience the culture and learn some history of Kingston in a short period of time. I highly recommend!

It was a pleasure learning about Jamaica’s national hero as well as finding out about the country’s link to its Spanish neighbors. Very informative. The tour of Emancipation Park and the bus ride was also a favorite of ours. If you’re from the Caribbean, she will remind you of every aunt you have ever had. Down to a sweetie and holding hands to cross the street...Lol. We felt like we were with family. It was our pleasure to have met you!! Thank You!

This tour is a must! We started off with the Liberty Hall, Museum of Marcus Garvey were we learnt about Jamaica’s first national hero, we then went to the Símon Bolivar Centre and learnt about this Venezuelan hero’s connection to Jamaica and the Caribbean Islands. It’s very insightful history and Juliet and her assistant Kadian are very knowledgeable guides. Even on our trip to the location they pointed out historic sites to us and told us about the specific history behind what we were seeing. It was our first trip to Jamaica and Juliet was gracious enough to make a special transportation arrangement for us that was more convenient. At the end of the tour you get to participate in a Latin dance and do take advantage of it if you can, don’t be boring! I would strongly recommend this tour. Don’t forget your camera. Juliet is such a sweet, intelligent and hospitable woman and we couldn’t have been more thankful for our first tourist experience in Jamaica!! We love Juliet and we enjoyed this tour! Don’t miss out!!
