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

This was a great experience for Bob Marley fans. We got to sit on Mt Zion the same way Bob Marley did. Our Rasta guide was most informative too.

After 2,5 hours drive from Montego Bay we arrived Nine Mile. The last hour of the drive was up in the mountains in small bumby roads. The view was beautiful. We visited Bob Marleys memorial, the house he grew up in, sat on his "pillow" and saw his mothers outside kitchen with "a pot in a pot". It was a... More

We didn't get a chance to visit Nine Miles the last time we came to Jamaica, and I am so glad we got to go this time. My son is six so we opted to hire a driver to take us there (please see my other review) to keep his experience as clean as possible. Well worth it. My son... More

Getting to Nine mile, Jamaica is quit a long trip (3 hours from Montego Bay) since it's up in the mountains in the middle of the island. Although the trips takes you true stunning scenery, it's probably wise to take a guided tour: you get some information along the way.... Nine mile it self, isn't big at all and apart... More
