Journey with us on our one of a kind Nyam An’ Guh Weh (Eat and Leave!) Tour that takes you on a culinary and cultural journey back in time. This walking and bus tour combo starts in the town of Falmouth which boasts the best preserved Georgian architecture in the Caribbean.

Along the way, you will have a chance to taste authentic Jamaican cuisine through five food and beverage tastings in diverse settings ranging from streetside casual to the elegantly rustic.
