Jamaica's Spirit of Reggae - the Bob Marley Experience from Montego Bay
US$ 86.99
Overview

Learn about the life and times of Bob Marley on this full-day excursion to Nine Mile, the King of Reggae's home. Explore the tiny village and learn about its Rastafarian roots, then visit Marley's boyhood home and burial place. Round-trip transportation from Montego Bay is included in this tour. 

What to Expect

Following pickup in Montego Bay, board your vehicle for the drive to Nine Mile. As the vehicle traverses the hills, curves and back roads of St Ann, the 'garden parish,' learn about the history and culture of Jamaica from your friendly tour guide, who will keep everything 'irie' during this full-day excursion.

Bob Marley, the King of Reggae, was born in this tiny village in the interior of the rugged Jamaican mountains on February 6, 1945. 

Walk through his boyhood home, which now serves as a photo gallery and museum dedicated to his life and music. Learn little-known facts about his life, childhood and musical career from your knowledgable guide as you tour the building. 

Visit 'Mt Zion Rock,' where Marley frequently meditated, and rest your head on the 'pillow' that he sang about in his track 'Talking Blues.'

Finally, pay your respects at Bob's final resting place. Pause to consider how much Marley taught the world about reggae music, Rastafarianism and the island of Jamaica before climbing back into your vehicle for the trip back to Montego Bay.

Great tour, but not for kids

This is a very long bus tour, on winding, narrow roads. You are rewarded with a very nice tour of Bob's home and other buildings on the property, including his mausoleum. The downside is that if you are not a pot smoker, it's a little...More

Great Place to Visit

I am glad I included this excursion because the drive alone was worth it. I have a newfound appreciation for those drivers there. Going up the mountain, hanging onto those cliffs was hair-raising and seeing their street code language of communication on those roads was...More
