It's what our travel agent told us. Whatever goes on there, stays there. Amazing place - tremendous difference between poor village surrounded the place and grandiose of the mausoleum/ shrine to Bob Marley on the top. You can buy overpriced memorabilia in the gift shop or consumable goods arround the corner. You may buy a candle to light by the... More

Didn't know what to expect from this place but I had such a giggle thanks to the amazing weed I smoked up on top of this mountain! It's nice and pure and giggly and definitely does not mong you out. When you arrive there are people there selling stuff outside you can choose cake, tea and / or ready rolled... More

and the rest of the world! You can't go to Jamaica and not visit anything concerning the Marley family. The tour is brief, but enough. The guides are extrovert, funny and slightly stoned :-) The stories they tell are lovely and funny at the same time. Even if the bus trip is quiet long, it's worth it! And during the... More

It's a long windy trip through the forest to get there, but well worth the trip! (about 2 hours from our hotel in Ocho Rios). It feels like you are driving in the middle of nowhere and then ta daaaaaa........you arrive! Upon arrival you are met with a friendly welcome and offered drinks and weed, etc. If this isn't your...

We didn't want to visit Jamaica and not learn something of the Marley family. We went to Nine Mile which is the birth and final resting place of Bob Marley. We stopped by "Mama" Marley's school and then entered the community. It wasn't a super busy attraction so you don't have to worry about navigating around people. We were introduced... More

Have been to Jamaica before but didn't get to visit Nine Miles then so just had to go this time. It was well worth the bus trip (took just over two hours to get there from our hotel in Montego Bay). The journey was a bit treacherous as the road takes you high up into the mountains and are very... More

We had a private driver who toured us from Montego Bay through the countryside to Nine Mile and Bob Marley's mausoleum. At the gateway to the centre you are approached by a variety of people selling everything from trinkets to brownies and "fatties". A polite "no thank you" and they leave you alone. Once you drive through the gate, it... More

First of all, if you are offended by marijuana or marijuana smoke, just don't go. The booking agent made it really clear, as did the tour guide and the bus driver, that there would be lots of smoke, and still people came on the bus and then complained about it! It is in the air, people are lighting up all... More

Very educational to say the least. I didn't realize Bob Marley came from such a humbling up bringing. I enjoyed the whole excursion, the 2 hour bus ride through the high mountains. I don't know about everybody else but I like seeing the country side of places I never been before. The whole thing was wonderful
