I went on this trip with my mom a few days ago, and from what I got to experience, it was great. I love Bob Marley so it was such a great opportunity to be able to experience all of that. I only got to experience about half of the trip because while we were in the bar area, I... More

We were visiting Falmouth, Jamaica on our cruise ship and booked a separate private excursion to Nine Miles through Know Jamaica Tours. We were not exactly sure what to expect, but our daughter is a HUGE Bob Marley fan and "demanded" we find a way to get to Nine Miles. First off, Know Jamaica Tours and the tour guide, Javia... More

Was great visiting the birthplace & tomb of Bob Marley. Though, this place is all about 'business' and we expected it to be a little more educational on Bob's life. I was glad I took the opportunity to visit this place, but dissapointed. I really felt the trip was more about 'making money' in stead of keeping the legend alive.... More

Took a trip with private driver up to Nine Mile from Runaway Bay - it took about an hour and a half, great scenery along the way. This is not a trip for young kids or people who take issue with "the herb", as it is a big part of this trip, you will smell it and see it. In... More

Yes I agree with some reviews, this is not for kids, but then why would you take kids here anyway, they wouldn't even know who he was or what he stood for!!!! We loved it from start to finish, I'm a Marley fan and the music was great, the atmosphere is so good, it was nice to see and feel... More

Really interesting ride up to Nine Mile, from Runaway Bay. Great scenery en route. On arrival, immediately offered either spliffs or cake. Short walk up some steps to the entrance, and then a wee bit further up to the site itself. The guide we had was 'Captain Crazy'. Definitely lived up to that name. Bit of a player with the... More

The village of Nine Mile, Located in the Dry Mountains of St. Ann Parish. What a great and wonderful place for a Children's Garden! For those who have traveled to Nine Mile, and to the New Visitor...Be sure to take note as you approach the village. Quickly look off to the left side of your buss. Here is the new... More

This is definitely not an appropriate venue for children - or for people who are uncomfortable around "herbal substances." Some of the people on the tour (myself included) did not partake but many did (including the guide, it seems) The bar/gift shop area also has a room full of Bob Marley's gold and platinum records, some portraits, awards, and a...

Really good experience. The only down side to this attraction is the location, which can't be helped! It took us about 2.5 hours to get there from our resort in montego bay, up the windy mountain roads it was soooo long. By the time we had arrived we were all travel sick and tired. There are locals trying to sell... More

The tour shows you his home and the resting place of both he and his mother. That's it. It is a SUPER long drive up through the mountain on a very bumpy road. Not for young kids as marihuana is sold everywhere and smoked while on the tour.
