Biggy and Junior are great guides, they have lots of knowledge and love for Jamaica and they sure make you feel it too. If you love the music you must see this tour, Trenchtown and Bob Marley's yard, lots of history there and cool vibes, Tuff Gong Studio gives you a sense of even more history...interesting! The childrens reading center touches your heart...lovely library and inspiring project. The trip was wonderful....

We were in Negril for 12 days and during that time, we went to Kingston with De Music Buzz - TWICE! We got a ride the 1st time in order to visit family & friends. The 2nd time, we went along for the entire Kingston Flash Tour. It was amazing!! Junior is a friendly and outgoing person who helps make the trip FUN! Along the way, he gave us info about Jamaica's different parishes and made us laugh often! We also stopped a couple of times in order to see attractions and give the body a rest. We stopped at Bamboo Avenue and were given info on its history. Coffee and water were provided for us. Later, we stopped at Juici Patti in Clarendon for a nice lunch. We drove a bit in downtown Kingston and got a feel for the city and its energy. Then it was off to Beverly Hills, where we were given info about the area as well as amazing views! The Bob Marley Museum was our next stop and it is a MUST for any fan. Here, we got to meet Bongo Herman! Our next stop at the Trenchtown Culture Yard was an amazing experience! Not only did we get to see some things I never thought I'd see (take the tour to find out what!!) but I also got to meet Ziggy Soul and hear the band LivynKulcha! I also met Sophie - daughter of Brent Dowe from The Melodians! We went down the street to see the Trenchtown Reading Center and the positive and wonderful work they are doing there. We were able to spend a little time talking to the children about the books they were reading and watch their faces light up as they described the stories to us. It was a very moving experience and I am so happy that Junior includes this as part of the Kingston Flash Tour!! Then off to Tuff Gong Int'l where we got an in depth look at how records are made. There's some beautiful paintings on the walls at Tuff Gong which are a must see. Also, we got to meet Ricky Chaplin! What an AMAZING DAY!
De Music Buzz is clean, well maintained, air conditioned and we could not have asked for a better host and driver in Junior! When I go back to Negril, I'm going to Kingston with De Music Buzz again!

If you are interested in the history of Reggae, you must do this trip. When booking the trip with Biggy, you could feel her passion for Kingston and music.
Junior is a fantastic guide, a great driver, and a great guy!
Our tour consisted of Junior picking us up at 6:00 am sharp in Negril. We stopped for coffee at Bamboo Alley and then at Juicy Pattie for breakfast. Once in Kingston he took us up to see "Beverly Hills" and then it was off to the Bob Marley Museum. Next on the agenda was Trench Town Cultural Yard and then the Trench Town Reading Center. Last stop was Tuff Gong Recording Studios.
Sitting by the same tree in Bob Marley's yard where he practiced and wrote songs was moving.
I learned so much from Donnette in Trench Town and was touched by the good being done at the Reading Centre.
My husbands favorite part was the recording studio. They take you right from the recording studio and you follow through all of the steps until you see the vinyl album packaged and ready to sell. Great stuff!
This trip is an excellent value and a great way to see the Jamaican countryside.
We were returned to our hotel safe and sound at midnight (we had some delays due to heavy rainfall) and were given a great gift for taking the tour.
I would do this tour again in a heart beat. The only thing I would change is where we had lunch. We were taken to a shopping mall food court. Seeing that we were in Kingston I would have liked to have had something local and authentic.

Buzz tour from Negril was a long day, but the highlight of my "Marley is great" tour.
This was a welcomed service provided for people who love Marley but don't want the hassle of staying in Kingston.Seeing the Marley museum, recording studio, and early roots of trench town is a Must for any BMW devotee.
Our host Junior made the day fun and educational. There is a reading center in trench town for anyone interested in donating books!
Bob Marley has changed the future of this wonderful, forgotten country.
Great time...great people

We had a really great and very informative tour to Kingston with Junior and De Music Buzz. Next to Junior’s calm and pleasant driving style we would also like to mention the good condition of the bus, which is not common for tour buses in Jamaica. Traveling with Junior was a lot of fun and we learned a lot from him about the country and people.
We were impressed by the Trenchtown Reading Centre project in Kingston, which is supported by De Music Buzz.
We have made ​​some other trips with Junior, where he has brought us reliably and at a fair price.
In this way, again thanks.
