Full description
You will be picked up at your hotel in Kingston. Meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel. He will give you a five minute summary of the tour and answer any of your questions and then you will board the transport. Immediately upon leaving the hotel your tour guide will start providing information on the areas you are passing through.

Twenty minutes later, you will reach the first stop at a look out point where can see the eastern side of the city. Learn about its various landmarks, areas and history. Then, continue your journey passing through "Irish Town", a small village area that was and is still used today by wealthy Kingstonians to get away from the Kingston heat. Work you way up to the second lookout spot with magnificent views of the lush green valleys and peaks of the Blue Mountains. Then finally reach your destination at 3500 feet and stop at the old British barracks and parade grounds in New Castle, St. Andrew. There you will see the most southern views of Kingston, the tallest point on the Western side of the Blue Mountains and an old seventeenth century canon. This is the ideal spot to take pictures and more pictures.

Once you're finished, drive for another fifteen minutes to the UNESCO National Park grounds, your destination for hiking, bird watching and being one with nature. You will spend approximately two hours here. Afterwards start heading back down the mountain, making an optional stop for something to eat at one of the local spots, which normally takes less than an hour. Finally, forty five minutes later, you will be dropped off at your hotel and escorted into the lobby where the hotel will be informed that you have arrived back "safe and sound".
