Visit the birthplace and hometown of reggae legend Bob Marley during this 7-hour trip from Montego Bay. Explore the remote village of Nine Mile, located in St Ann parish, to see where Bob Marley was born and spent his formative years. See Mt Zion, where Bob frequently meditated and composed music. Learn about the Rastafarian religion that the musician practiced through informative, engaging commentary from your local guide. Round-trip transportation from Montego Bay is included.
My adult daughter and I traveled off resort with SNL Tours and our driver was fantastic. Friendly and willing to answer all our questions as we traveled to Nine Mile. We not only learned so much during our tour to Bob Marley's Nine Mile but about Jamaica in general and its history and people from our driver. Bob Marley's home is incredible and we were thoroughly entertained by our guide with historical information about Marley, his family, friends and musical legacy. This is a great tour to take if you are vacationing on a resort and want a break away.
Our guide and expert driver Errol made this a very enjoyable outing. It was nice to get away from the resort for a day and see some of the Jamaican countryside and the bustling small towns. Learned a lot about the legendary Bob Marley. The Rastafarian guide for the Marley Homestead portion of the trip was definitely a unique experience.
The only negative is the state of the road once you leave the highway. Be prepared for a memorable rocky drive through the enormous potholes up to Nine Mile.
