The actual experience of being in a place where Bob wrote some of his songs and where he and his mother are layed to rest were amazing. Getting to talk to and understand some of the beliefs of the Rastafarians was educational. Watching some of...More

This trip was my favourite day of our holiday in Jamaica. The place has this intense, magical, spiritual vibe. A few of us in the group said it felt like how you’d imagine a Buddhist monastery’s atmosphere to feel. Amazing!

Guide took time and answered questions. He was very detailed in explaining the history. The restaurant on site is good too. I love the sauce tastings as well. Also loved seeing all the Marley family plaques

The tour itself is interesting, you get to visit Bob’s Tomb, his mother’s Tomb, his childhood home, where he used to meditate etc. The weed is plentiful and the gifts are authentic. It was interesting to see where he grew up and what his house...More

It's so peaceful and relaxing. There's no rush. The guide walked slowly up the hill towards the house where Bob Marley was born. You get to walk through the house. Then you walk over to the house he lived in until he was 13 years...More

Not sure about private trips but place seemed ready to close by 1700 and you would need to allow around 2 hours for your visit.

Trying to plan an itinerary of things to do.... (20 Replies)
Hi all, I am trying to plan some sort of itinerary of things i'd like to do while in Runaway Bay. I've narrowed this down to: Green grotto caves, Enchanted gardens, Dunns waterfalls, Bob Marleys Mausoleum, Horse back riding Swimming with dolphins Can anyone recommend a plan of action day to day? Or suggest wether any of these can be done in one day? Also, a rough idea of how much I can expect each of these activities to cost would be great. (i'm open to using tour operators...More

Email Moodie, or if you have a large group, Paul Williams, and see what kind of packages you can make up. That's what I would do. I know Moodie has a Dunns River, and 9 Mile package, then throw something else in for the day. Just email him, tell him what you want to do, and ask for suggestions.
Reggae Tours is the way to see the real Jamaica! (35 Replies)
I'm not usually one for posting comments, but after my recent trip to Montego Bay, I feel compelled to share my positive experiences with Reggae Tours (Gregg Connell). We travelled to Jamaica for one week on December 16th, 2009, staying at the Sunset Beach Resort. From reading all the positive comments on Reggae Tours, I decided to contact Gregg in advance to get an idea of how I might plan my excursions. I felt the warm vibes immediately upon calling and speaking to Gregg. He was...More

Glad you found this forum. Too bad you didn't see it earlier, you would've been prepared. Did Air Transat/itravel give you any compensation as they have given others? The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
