From a hair-raising jump off a 27-foot high cliff, a cruise down a mangrove swamp, biking in the Blue Mountains to cavorting in Kingston, Antsman Tours has tailor made trips to suit every budget.

IMG_20170829_123649_561Owned by Orane Kentish – aka Antsman, it’s a company committed to their country’s subjects—art, architecture, history, music—as they are to their tours.

Established in 2006, the company’s enthusiasm for the country’s history has provided thousands of visitors to Jamaica with culture and history.

“I recently put a two-day tour together for a couple who wanted to travel around Jamaica and they were able to see several sites while traveling around the entire island,” he shares.

Beyond beaches and bashments, there’s plenty to see in Jamaica’s three counties and Kentish will ensure your every whim is met. Whether it’s soaking up the history of Jamaica’s music legend or scoping out the training camp of Jamaica’s fastest man, he combines knowledge and stamina.bob markey

His tours are tailored to his clients wishes, though common requests include the Bob Marley Museum. Friendly, punctual, knowledgeable and flexible, he has a broad knowledge of his country’s history, sights and culture and gives that little bit more than what was expected or paid for.

“I can’t keep my love of Jamaica to myself,” shares Kentish, a soccer coach who is actively involved in many community events. “There is a lot to see in Jamaica and so I always try to work with everyone. If it is not on my site and is somewhere you want to see I will take you there.”

A good guide can certainly elevate and enhance a travel experience, creating cherished memories.  After a day with Orane Kentish, you will leave the tour feeling like you just hung out with an old friend.
