Update: What We're Doing!
Like most of the world, our tours and life as we knew it came to a screeching halt in mid March 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ships stopped docking and the planes stopped landing and we at Jamaica Culinary Tours have been missing our valued guests ever since! We certainly hope that you have been staying well and staying safe wherever you are in the world.
As the world gradually begins to re-open and you start to think about travelling to some of your favourite or bucket list destinations, you can rest assured that the Government of Jamaica has adopted thorough and extensive measures to manage the risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic and to minimize the spread of the virus in Jamaica. And as the local tourism industry prepared for the re-opening of our borders in June last year, extensive preparations and rigourus training were undertaken by the hospitality industry to ensure the maximum safety of visitors to the island as well as that of the local population . The Ministry of Tourism has prepared a thorough and detailed manual with the Health and Safety Protocols which all hotels, guest properties, tours, attractions, ground transportation operators etc. must adhere to. There is also a procedure in place to facilitate the entry into the island of our visitors. If you are planning to visit Jamaica in the near future, please do be sure to visit the Jamaica Tourist Board website at https://www.visitjamaica.com/travelauthorization/ and follow the guidelines carefully to secure your travel authorization and ensure a smooth and seamless entry into the island.
At this time, visitors to the island are being encourgaged to stay on property or in their hotels to minimize the risk of spread in the general population, and therefore Jamaica Culinary Tours has not yet re-opened its doors for physical tours. However, as we look forward to hosting guests again we are taking the opportunity to revamp our tour offerings and to design exciting new trails and products. Our Culinary Concierge Services will be even more tailored and customized to your interests and needs, offering our customary and proven five star service as we continue to introduce our guests to authentic and delightful culinary experiences and to the wonderful people and stories behind our food. As we build out a new suite of products we welcome your input and feedback on what you would like to see built into our culinary concierge services.
