The drive to and from the house was my favourite part, but the tour was fun too! Once you get off the bus, your driver takes you around the corner where you can buy cake and massive joints. The cake was $20 and the joints were $15. Don't eat the whole slice of cake unless you are used to smoking... More

Didn't know what to expect on this day trip, but blew our minds! Wonderful people with amazing knowledge of Bob Marley, and we had a fantastic day. Mind out for beggers and if you buy the cake, be prepared to lose two days of your life! Will remember the atmosphere of this place forever x

The Bob Marley Mausoleum is a great experience but to fully experience Jamaican culture I recommend going outside of the high walls of the museum. Yes, people will try to sell you sell you ganja in various forms but you can politely say no. The ganja plantation tours are interesting if you want to learn where and how it is... More
