After a rather long trip up the mountain appr. 2 hours, we reached our goal: Nine mile. Good drinks, good food, experienced guides.
Personnally, I touched the Bob coffin 7 times, 1 time, 7 times, 1 time... I 'm the emotional type you know...
Now I visited the mausoleums of Lenin, Ho Chi Ming and Bob Marley. Nelson Mandela 's is my next I hope!

Our driver Cedric picked us up right on time. The drive thru the mountains was long and very interesting. Marley's mausoleum was busy, but they maintained a good level of respect. The guide there was informative, clever and funny. All in all a great morning. Highly recommended!

The bob Marley raggae explosion was FANTASTIC. We could not have asked for a better tour guide than Bernard he was full of information and stopped a few times so we could take pictures of the mountains on the way up to nine mile. After our tour of nine mile Bernard took us to meet some of the locals it was brilliant. Worth every penny!!!!!!

Our driver Bernard was great! He's a really nice guy and very informative and stops along the way during the drive for you to take pictures. It was a good experience if you are a Bob Marley fan and in Jamaica. I have to warn you thats its going to be 2 and something ours of bumpy ride up to the mountain where Bob Marley's home.

I wish we could rate this a ten! We were picked up at nine from our hotel the jewel by a man named benard he was so awesome! And even more great is it was just us on the tour to nine mile, it was so perfect it was like a private tour! He was very kind enough to stop along the way to take in the view and afterwards he stopped at a shopping centre to buy stuff which I do not even think was included on the tour! In a nut shell I highly recommend this tour! We hope to do this again! YAAAAA MON!

We had an amazing day. It started with the operator collecting us from our hotel. They were friendly, informative and good fun. We were able to see alot of Jamaica during the drive before arriving at Bob Marleys birth place. Fantastic. "Yeh Mon".

We had a fantastic excursion through Viator. It ended up being two of us on the tour, so we had a private, air-conditioned car, with our own personal guide. He was great, with lots of great local stories and knowledge. We originally were interested in the jeep tour to Marley's house but were so glad we went with the private tour. The sun is pretty strong up in the mountains, and we went though some areas where children chased the cars begging. I imagine in an open-aired car that would be a bit overwhelming.

Tour company was nearly impossible to get a hold of. Tour was booked for 9 am and we tried confirming the days/weeks before but heard no response. Our hotel worked for about an hour the day before. We finally found out at 9:30 pm the night before that the tour tour would be at 2pm. We had to change our day's plan. Nonetheless, tour was enjoyable though rushed no fault of tour company. The driver was informative and fun. Very beautiful ride to Nine Mile with nice vistas.
