          A trip to remember! Will do it again
          This trip was amazing. Winston was very engaging, he did not only drive to Ocho Rios but was happy to answer all questions we had about Jamaica and specifically about Ocho Rios. He waited patiently whilst we did our shopping. Inbound definitely recommend the Winston as there will not be a dull moment during your day adventure!

          Friendly and knowledgable tour guide
          We had a great time with Winston. He took us all around Ocho Rios: drove around the town showing us various medicinal plants, drove us up thru Fern Gully then stopped high up above town to take photos. We then stopped at Tajmahal shopping center to get done souvenirs and Jamaican rum. Winston is a friendly and knowledgable guide.

          Exceptional, fun and memorable experience!!
          Can't say enough good things about Winston. He was so courteous when he reached out the day before our scheduled tour to confirm details and pick up time. He was prompt, very warm and welcoming, so professional, patient, and a very engaging and amazing conversationalist. He made sure we were comfortable and we felt absolutely safe during the entire tour. He was very knowledgeable and clearly loves his job and we absolutely enjoyed touring with him. Please, please ask for Winston when you book your tours, and you'll thank me later. He most certainly contributed to a memorable vacation experience, and I will hands down recommend him for future tours!!

          Nice and quick tour
          We left the hotel at 9am and were back around 12. The driver Leroy was very friendly and told us many interesting facts about the area and Jamaica in general. Apart from driving in and around the town Ocho Ríos, he also took us to two lovely viewpoints (perfect photo opportunity), and we stopped for souvenir shopping on our way back.

          Enjoyable evening
          Very fun trip and our driver to get out there was very nice and communicative. Be prepared for a bit of a drive, an hour plus, if you’re leaving from Ocho Rios. The restaurant you wait out before you go out also has some good food and drinks. Kinda hard to see the glowing with the naked eye but the operators of the tour have a special camera that gets some good picture.

          Winston was very knowledgeable of the history behind Ocho Rios. Made us feel safe and comfortable throughout the whole tour. Even took us to get a quick bite of some food cravings we had. I recommend him 10000%.

          Ocho Rios Sightseeing
          Winston was great! We were picked up from Ocean Eden Bay in Trelawny which is an hour away from Ocho Rios but that didn’t stop him from making sure we had a good time. He was active in conversation and explained a lot of life in JA! We customized our excursion and did the Bamboo rafting. Although it was short, it was a chill experience. He took us around Ocho Rios for sightseeing and visited souvenir shops. He offered to take us to local food spots as well. We recommend booking with him! Respect!

          Winston Gayle is the absolute best!
          This experience was amazing! Winston Gayle was beyond incredible. We are Canadians and very worried about our safety when travelling abroad. We were nothing but safe with him. In fact he even gave us tips and tricks about what to do/not to do to ensure full safety while in Jamaica. Winston was recommended to us by multiple friends and it was a fantastic decision. He is extremely reliable, informative, genuine, and flexible to all of your wishes and needs . Booking with Winston saved us a ton of money rather than booking through the resort and he taught us much more than a resort guide would. If you want 100% safety, to save tons of money, and a much better experience, I promise you need to book through Winston. We will 100% use Winston every time we are in Jamaica. Please use Winston so you know you’re safe and in great hands!

        I went on the 9 Mile Tour today to Bob Marley's birth and resting place. Mr. Winston picked us up right at 9am from the resort, communicated with us prior to our pickup as a reminder. Mr Winston was very nice, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The road from Ocho Rios to 9 mile can be a little bumpy ride going up the mountain, but I felt very safe with Mr. Winston's driving. The tour itself was amazing. My boyfriend didn't want to go initially because he wanted to go to the Bob Marley museum instead, but he ended up loving the tour. It was a spiritual and enlightening experience, we learned alot about the family history of Bob Marley and the neighborhood he grew up in. When the tour ended, Mr Winston was there waiting for us and was kind enough to stop at a restaurant for me to pick up food on the way back. I would highly recommend this tour with Mr Winston.

        I had a wonderful time visiting the 9 mile Bob Marley Birth and Resting Place. Our tour guide/driver Winston was amazing he was very pleasant and answered our questions thoroughly. He was very excited to educate us on his culture and even went above and beyond to get us coconuts and authentic Jamaican fish for the drive back to our hotels. At Bob Marley Birth and Resting Place I was able to explore his childhood home and learn more about his roots and upbringing. The best part was the band that sang his legendary hits beautifully and the bartender that provided us with a drink that was lit on fire. Overall I had a great time!

        The whole experience is stellar.. from the moment you get off at the dock till your return, it's full of friendly and warm professionalism. Winston is caring, attentive, and makes you feel welcomed and safe the entire time. He's a pro at handling the traffic and terrain both in the city and the mountains, making you feel comfortable and at ease. He has great recommendations for local add ons, like shopping, food, etc... at nine miles, it was a truly memorable experience at the Bob Marley tour with Captain Crazy, who is all heart, soul, and comedy! I highly recommend booking with Winston and touring with Captain Crazy!

        A MUST for any true music fan! Our driver Dalton was so friendly and we got to see a lot of the true Jamaican countryside and up in the hills. We peppered him with questions and he had all the answers. He told us the history of the Rastafarian religion and that was quite interesting. The tour guide, Captain Crazy, kept us in stitches and we will never forget our experience seeing the birth place and final resting place of Bob Marley.

        My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to 9 Mile. Winston communicated with us right away after booking and reconfirmed the day before our trip via WhatsApp. He arrived to our hotel on time and was warm and friendly. It takes a little while to get there from Ocho Rios, but it was nice seeing other parts of Jamaica that we had not seen, and Winston shared facts about areas. I told my husband that Winston felt like "family". He shared with us that he has a farm nearby 9 Mile and I hope the next time we are in Jamaica we can see that - would love to have some of the pineapple he grows.

        Once we got to 9 Mile Winston took us to the check-in and handled everything. Then we were taken to where the tour starts. The guide at 9 Mile was very friendly and funny and we learned a lot about Bob Marley and his early years.

        We considered booking this trip through our hotel, but it was a little more money and didn't include the cost of admission to 9 Mile. Also, I like the fact that this tour was private.

        I highly recommend this trip, you won't regret it!

        Amazing tour seeing Bob Marley’s homestead. Henry was our tour guide and was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating with our delayed arrival via cruise ship. He did a great job telling us about the local culture, and the not so common foods (Jamaica pudding). Highly recommend especially if you want to still see the island and not pay the cruise ship excursion fees.

        This tour was an incredible and humbling experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, there was live music, and it was overall impactful and insightful.
        The tour showed us that Bob Marley truly I was an inspiration to not just the people of Jamaica but to people around the world.
        To be barefoot and to touch his tomb was incredible.
        We came from Montego Bay, and Winston was our driver and an absolute pleasure.
        He picked us fresh avocados from the local trees and drove us there and back which was quite the journey!
        He played Bob Marley for us on the ride there, and gave us some history as we made the journey to 9 mile.
        One note to others, ensure you come with CASH. There is a gift shop, items to buy, drinks, and people to tip during the tour.
        At the end, you are asked to tip your tour guide. One family just left and did not tip anything.
        We wish we had more cash so we could tip Benjamin more, but after he got an attitude when we said that was all we had, he kind of negated the lovely day we had with him, which was unfortunate!
        Overall, we highly recommend this very informative and impactful experience!

        Winston was awesome! He gave us a great tour of Montego Bay on the way to 9 Mile. He discussed the Jamaican history and culture. We wanted to stop and get coconut water and food and he made sure to find the best places to go to. Our ride was safe and took about the same time 1:45min from our hotel location. Everything was worth it. We saw Bob Marley birth place and his burial site along with his mother’s. The 9 MILE Space is very nice and welcoming. We got to see the live band play some of Marleys hits and were able to do some souvenir shopping while there as well. Thank you so much for a great experience!

        Winston was a great driver. He promptly picked us up in the lobby of our resort in his nice minibus and gave us bottled water for our private ride. He answered our questions and told us what to expect on the drive. The drive up the mountain is narrow but his confident driving helped us to sit back and relax. It was nice to get a glimpse of the real jamaica away from the touristy area. He took us right inside to our tour guide and waited for us outside. The tour itself was great. Crazy Curtis shared his knowledge and stories and gave us a great experience. Winston was waiting for us when we were done. He offered to stop somewhere if we wanted to buy souvenirs but we decided not to. Overall it was a fabulous experience. Winston made everything so easy and enjoyable.
