My wife and I visited Nine Miles in April of this year. We booked the Zion bus through our Hotel holiday Rep. As we were staying in St Anne the journey to Nine Miles wasn't too long. The Zion bus experience was well worth doing, our guide Gary "Dan Dada" was exceptional. Firstly I would like to state that at... More

Even if you have the slightest interest in the life, rise and loss of such an icon you need to experience this. From his humble beginnings to his almost saintly current status, this is an excellent, if tragic tale. The trip highlights Bobs life, his achievements, his struggles and his premature death. Keep open minded, you will not be disappointed.... More

Went back to pay hommage to the great Bob Marley. Still as interesting as 12 years ago but this time just a little more geared up to tourism.

Not a trip for the faint-hearted. Elderly and those with small children should skip this one. Our man Leon from Jamaicaexplorer drove us through the mountainous countryside. It was a bumpy ride in a Toyota van. The journey is the best part of the adventure. At nine miles everyone is looking for a buck but whatever. Guys were selling and... More

My husband and I booked this trip through Thomsons from Montego Bay. The drive up through the mountains is very scenic and you get to see a bit of real Jamaica - instead of just the plush hotels along the coastline. Arriving at Nine Miles, you are taken to an alleyway at the side to purchase spliffs, space cake etc,... More

We travelled to Nine Miles from Montego Bay as my husband is a big Bob Marley fan. It was a long drive up into the mountains, along narrow lanes with bumpy roads but with great views at times. Nine Miles itself is fairly small and probably wouldn't be suitable for anyone who didn't know about Bob Marley (unless they were... More

Drove up there in a hire car, roads a little scary, local drivers scarier. On arrival local jackals teamed up to be pretend car park and official guides. Took us to someone's back yard claiming it was a "plantation", saw it was a scam and tried to get away. they got unpleasant, demanding ten US dollars per person for the... More

Worth the time to see where Bob Marley rests and grew up.This is an adult type trip as Bob's life style of smoke does come into play. It is informative and the ride up into the Blue Mtns is scenic
