In contrast to Peter Tosh home and burial this was rather commercial and lots of pressure to buy. The burial place was peaceful and beautiful, a sanctuary away from the commercial aspects of the place.

This area is a place of rest for Bob and his mother, lots of memorabilia and information for you to soak up. The tour guides are informative though very pushy for tips and I will have to say there is the worse tribute band playing I have ever heard (again wanting tips). A nice area of where he lived and...

They make it sound a lot better than it is. They take you on a 1:40 ride into the mountians and then you are bombarded by the local pot heads. They all want your money..... The tour of Bob Marley's home and burial was all that was there.

Excellent place, wonderful guides, music and over all experience. We are huge Bob fans so this place was highly emotional for us all, His resting place Mount Zion is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. The tour guides are there to educate and let you enjoy the atmosphere, they do a fantastic job, with a love... More

Was awesome to go to where my family was influenced by a man, who's music reached us across the globe in the Pacific. To be able to put the person/music to a place & actually be there was pretty cool! A Mecca or shrine for many followers, but overall interesting experience!

I am not much of a Reggae fan but the tour to Nine Miles. The guide explained about Bob Marley's life and the events that where the foundation of many of the lyrics. Very interesting and worth the admission price. Due to where its located I would advise you to have a guide or go on a tour package. It... More

Tour guides take you to the locals who are trying to sell you marijuana brownies and spliffs. You are encouraged to smoke on the tour. Tour is just looking at Bob Marley's old bedroom and his resting place. Strong smell of marijuana everywhere. Not a place for children. 2hr drive from Montego Bay. Everyone expects a tip.

If you are someone who is impatient, have a bad back or being in a tight space for a little more than an hour (bus ride) than by all means dont go. From any resort you stay at you are looking at a 2 hour plus ride in a small bus. Large buses would not be able to make the... More

Hi! Just a few words to warn you to be careful with the people you find at the entrance of Bob Marley's house. We (my boyfriend and I) rented a car and drove all the way to Nine Miles. When we got to Bob Marley's house, some local men stop us and offered us to have a walk in the... More

This tour was beyond words. I've been a HUGE Bob Marley fan since I was 12 or 13, and to get to go to his home, and see where he lived as a child,and see his grave, It was amazing. We had Captain Crazy as our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable, and so fun. Couldn't have asked for a... More
