Short and sweet!

We were in and back out of here in about 15 minutes, was expecting more if I'm honest. Was nice to see where Bob was born and is laid to rest, the guide was fun and informative.

The drive with " Ras Shacka" to the place, was quite informative. He more seemed like a history teacher. I felt quite full of himself. I found the men on the street & the attraction are TOO aggressive. Did not enjoy the attraction, trying to watch my back ! I found, from getting off the bus, where Ras Shacka pulled... More

The drive up the mountains was beautiful and once we got there the tour was excellent. People keep offering you pot but if you say no they are perfectly nice about it. Our guide was awesome and if you're a Bob Marley fan this is a must.

The drive up the mountain was spectacular. Bob Marley's was everything I expected. Well worth the trip.

We had a fun day here. It's quite a trek from Ochos Rios. Does not look far on the map but the roads are tiny and not well maintained with lots of lots of twists and turns. My 14 year old got car sick on the way. Outside the gates of the place, there are plenty of harmless folks asking... More

This is a tiniest place with the biggest flavors. The wait was totally worth it. Best food we had during the trip to Asheville

As a Bob Marley's fan I enjoyed this tour very much. It gives you a perspective of how talented and influential Bob is. No matter where someone comes from we all can make an impact in the world. Seeing the house where he grew up was truly special. Very inspiring!

Loved the trip, saw loads in the way, it's a couple of hours into the mountains to his house. Don't want to say too much to spoil the trip for anyone but I enjoyed it. After we stopped for Jerk Chcken but it was around 2:30 to 3pm so take a drink and a snack. We'd had a big breakfast... More
