Anyone coming to Jamaica needs to go on this tour. It was very interesting to see the home Bob grew up in and to see al lot of the photos from his family. There was also a reggae band there playing his music and our tour guide was great sharing all of his knowledge on some of the inspiration behind Bob Marley's music. One thing...it is a LONG and rough trip to get there!
Amazing Experience! Amazing Tour Guide! Ask for FABIAN!!

This trip was amazing. The journey up the mountains to see where the legend was born and laid to rest is an experience like no other. Our driver Fabian made it an even better experience!! You won’t regret it!
This was a great trip. We were picked up at our hotel. The drive was comfortable and scenic. The driver was friendly and helpful. We arrived at Bob Marley's place quite early which I'd recommend as it's less busy get there before the big tours from MB...pick a day when there are less cruise ships in if you can This is a must do tour!
Highly recommended if you are a fan of Bob Marley. The trip takes 1 hr 20 mins by taxi on winding roads. Stunning views of the interior hills and valleys. Driving through small villages and getting a glimpse of how the majority of people live in Jamaica. A totally different world from Ocho Rios. The Mausoleum is thoughtfully done and the visit with one of the guides is interesting. You only need an hour there. Our driver, was fantastic - careful, thoughtful and very knowledgeable.
The tour was right on time. Dr. Fun was there to meet us. The tour was fun and informative. We really enjoyed our day and our guide went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect! I would recommend tour! And would not hesitate to book with them again.
