Wondering if it's best to pay extra to get around town to see the major sights with structured tours, or try it the local way on the bus routes?

I can read a subway map like it's my job, but the sheer volume of bus routes in Kingston is intimidating.

I want to do the 56 hope road tour, trench town tour, port royal tour, and see the major spots like national heros park and emancipation park.

Is the bus line manageable once on site and with a little guidance from my guesthouse host?
