Lovely drive through the hills and lovely little towns to get there, great views and roads not too bad. When inside we got allocated a tour guide who talked us through the "museum". At every opportunity they were wanting you to buy drinks etc which kind of took the shine off the actually tour. It was not what I was... More

This museum and the story behind it had a lot of potential and, frankly, it is probably just our guide that ruined the experience for me. We had a very small group, comprising myself, a couple and a girl on her own. Much of the tour, the guide spent trying to flirt outrageously and somewhat uncomfortably with the girl on... More

The tour was informative, going through the house and seeing various awards etc, and then a video clip at the end, but I found it overpriced ($25) for what it was, and the guide's super exuberance was a bit much to take, having us say 'irie!' every other sentence.

Amazing tour of Bob Marley's late estate. This was a great tour and insight into his live, family and music career. Our guide was very "energetic" and in a great mode made the tour fun at the same time! For sure a highlight while visiting Kingston.

The Bob Marley museum on Hope Road is his former residence that he acquired from his manager, Chris Blackwell, in the '70s. If you like or care for his music, his philosophy, his Rasta affiliation, his legacy and details of his history, this is the place to got to for a couple of hours. I've been there before many years... More

Additionally Ricky was was entertaining, positive and fun! I hope when we bring our children back we get him as our guide again. The tour was so... More

We deeply enjoyed the whole experience. Bob Marley was one of the greatest songwriters and musicians the world has ever known. They've done a great job memorializing his legacy at 56 Hope Rd. Ricky was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. Thank you! One Love!!!!!
