Great few hours hearing the Legends Bob's music. Great tour guides singing and telling you the history of Bob his albums and his life. Seeing his tomb was out of this world a truly gifted man who spoke great words through his music. you get to see the real Jamaica on route.

It's all irie up here. From MoBay it's about an 1.5 hour drive up into the mountains. The drive starts out on paved, highway-like roads and then turns into narrow streets that often have blind turns. Lots' of horn honking, goats and people walking the streets. Once at Nine Miles, we visited the birth home of the legendary Bob Marley.... More

Nine Mile is a small mountain town in the parish of St Ann's and is the birthplace and resting place of the late, great Bob Marley & his mother and siblings. It is of course quite commercial but also very respectful of his musical legacy and his status as a famous son of Jamaica. A great way to see rural... More

This was an interesting tour. There was a peaceful aura about the compound. There is a rasta tour guide who gives interesting facts about Bob and his family. The restaurant has great Jamaican food. Try the whole red snapper. It was outstanding. It is definite yes for all reggae lovers.

We visited Jamaica mud June 2015 and we done this trip to Nine Mile to learn more about Bob Marley. It was fab. The rasta's were lovely and we learnt all about their heritage. We love Bob Marley music. I feel they will spoil it if they make it more commercialised as they seem to be making changes. Overall it... More

Round trip is about 3.5 hours and it's worth. I saw the mausoleum of Bob Marley and his mother. Outside you will find the tomb of his grandparents and relatives. But the only issue is that we cannot take pictures inside the mauloseum and it's a heart break. Please don't bring your kids and this is my personal view.

Fascinating look in to Bob Marley's life. If you don't want to be Higher than a Lion on Zion, don't eat the Brownies
