My group travelled at least 2-3 hours to get there... I can't remember. The drive was a tiresome but I enjoyed the scenery more than anything. I was left speechless plenty of times during my journey... Just to see all of the beautiful untouched and undevloped land, the little houses built from scraps, the culture, the people. It was all...

Loved learning about the history and experiencing the culture....The drive was pretty scary because it is 3000 feet above sea level, so we were driving up the mountains and their were no guard rail. Looked like you can go right over...Other than that great experience.

Brilliant if you love Bob...its a must! Gives one an understanding of the man and the musician. Also gives a perspective of life as a Rastafarian

It was a long trip up the mountain to see the Place the Great Bob Marley was born and raised in a 1 room house that still stands near his mausoleum. The people that give the tours are a bit different, but I would not have it any other way. It was a place I wanted to visit for a... More

My son and I had a brilliant time here. During the ride up to Nine Miles our tour guide gave us lots of information about the Jamaican way of life and enlightened us in to some history about the island and we able to see some of the culture. At the Mausoleum we had the now infamous Captain Crazy as... More

The best part of the tour was the two hour ride to and from St. Ann's Bay. I was able to see how the people live and ride through different communities. The tour guide was very friendly and stopped at various locations along the way and answered all of my questions. When we arrived at the Mausoleum, people were outside... More

This is a disgrace!! All the tour is a money scheme!!! The actual tour is short and piss pour, but the ride from Montego Bay was long and uneventful. Why we even paid to go and be rushed through some tour that you could learn more on Wikipedia is a joke. The guides say the bush is legal there but... More
