What you'll do

FIRST we will meet behind Burger King on Jimmy Cliff Blvd (the Hip Strip) in MoBay where you will receive a bag of Jamaican snacks and local goodies (yummy!). NEXT, we will journey through downtown Montego Bay to sightsee the hustle and bustle of Jamaican locals. THEN, we will head to our first local restaurant for SAMPLES! Here we will taste small portions of local favorites, like jerk chicken and fried plantain. AFTERWARD, we will head over to the working class community of Bogue Village to SAMPLE THE BEST Jamaican fried chicken drizzled in pineapple chicken gravy. While waiting on our food with other locals, you will admire the huge residential mountain that towers over the community, and we will chat about Jamaican culture. NEXT, we will head to the last restaurant for final SAMPLES of Jamaican cuisine. This local restaurant has an amazing ocean view and we will indulge in jerk pork, brown stew chicken, curry chicken, rice and peas and curry goat, depending on the season. LASTLY, we will journey through downtown Montego Bay's busy Barnett Street and its famous open-air market venue. Guests will be given the chance to stop and take pics before returning to the pick-up point.

Wah Gwaan mi peeple?! I am excited to introduce, PORTIONS, my specially tailored food-sampling experience! Born in Jamaica, I work within the Jamaican Tourism industry as a tour guide and as the proud owner of Stanhope Tours. Over the past few years, my guests ALWAYS ask me to take them to authentic restaurants, and I welcome opportunities to show them my favorite restaurants, where they are blown away by the tastes of Jamaica. Because of this observation, I've carefully crafted the ultimate Jamaican food sampling experience. I have built solid relationships with several local restaurants, with whom I've worked with to create sample dishes with small portions of staple foods for my guests to try. These samplings ARE NOT sold on the menu- so this is truly a one-of-a kind experience!

Where you'll be

The FIRST restaurant that we will visit, has an open-air atmosphere where you can watch the chefs grilling your jerk chicken! The SECOND restaurant is located in a local Jamaican community with local vibes - it's one of my favorites! The THIRD restaurant is off the beaten path with a great ocean view. The market place is located in downtown Montego Bay - the total opposite of a resort and completely dominated with vendors, food and locals.

This was an awesome tour. Floyd-Stan is very knowledgeable about the history of Jamaica. Stan took us around the outskirts of Montego Bay and we were able to sample some AMAZING food. We went to a place called Chicken and more- it was the BEST fried chicken I’ve ever had (even better than fried chicken in Korea) . I highly recommend this tour, you well be exposed to good food and good vibes. #Bless

Floyd was an excellent guide who took us to amazing, local spots that we would have never been able to experience otherwise. Floyd accommodated my pescatarian dietary request and made sure I had plenty to eat. In addition to the tasty snack pack he started us with, he also brought some unique tropical fruit for us to sample and bring back with us. Floyd took us through various communities of Montero Bay and told us all about its history. He also drove us through the market areas and offered for us to stop and walk around. He was a super cheerful and informative guide and we’d highly recommend booking with him during your stay! You will certainly have a great time, learn a lot, eat amazing food and get your moneys worth. Thanks Floyd!

I love to eat, clearly! This was perfect and gave me a chance to experience some local restaurants that I'd otherwise never come across. I enjoyed all the food and the yummy snacks given at the beginning. I also enjoyed the walk through the market downtown. Again, not something I would've done otherwise. Floyd was great, easy conversation and he is very passionate about his work. Would love to experience his new venture.

Great guy Floyd! Took me all over and had so so much to eat! It was my first time having peanut punch and was introduced to now my favorite dish: brown stew chicken. 10/10 would do again! A must if you come to mobay
