  • We booked a tour to the mausoleum just to get off our resort and see a little more of Jamaica. It was worth it just for the cab ride there. We came from Runaway Bay and the drive into the mountains wa...  more »
  • For being one of the icons of Jamaica, the Government should improve the access that is bad. A bumpy road, many cliffs, most passing points only one car (often having to stop to share space with trucks, vans and taxis going wild in the opposite direction), very twisty as the rise of a saw (if it's night or with a lot of rain fog) and from Ocho Rios takes around 2 hours a journey of 70 km up the who has no experience in bad roads. Admission is $25 per person. The Guide showed us the House was very nice and explained that most compositions were made there and with some snippets of songs that spoke of his place of refuge (DESIRE) that was just above the home, a cottage 2 rooms. You will also see the grave of grandparents, of his mother and of course his. The stone where he sat and composed the songs. The room where he lived his early years. Finally, it is worth knowing, especially one who is a fan. Remembering that is difficult to access and that the Government has no respect for Tourism as it should be.

  • This place has the beginning and the end of the story of the great Bob Marley. The guides are people close to him, in their own belief and enjoying talking and having fun about it. Crazy was our guide...  more »

  • I loved seeing this place. There is an incredible vibe and the tour was perfect. Everyone here is very friendly and inviting. The tour was about an hour long and very interesting. Its very hard to say what was my favorite part because it liked it all. They offered some herbal tea and other goodies. You can smoke herb, but not cigarettes on the tour.
  • Cool place! Super touristy but worth it. The guide does a good job I just don’t like that they won’t really let you leave without giving them a tip. You get to see and touch bob marleys memorial and the actual tomb he’s buried in as well as his brother and mother. And you get to see a remake of the houses he grew up in. Fun and adventurous drive there with beautiful views.
  • One of the most mystic tours. Deeply into the islands of Saint Ann Jamaica a town called 9 miles. Very peaceful village people there are always happy. Also along the tour the resting place of BOB is quite a Serene area. The tour guides not to mention captain crazy he's the best
  • The ride up and down the mountain was SCARY! Our driver sped past cars at high speeds on narrow roads with no railing. I suggest going before the sun goes down because their are no lights on the mountain. Riding the country side being able to see real Jamaica was amazingly surreal. Weed, weed brownies and weed tea is available to purchase both inside and outside the complex to complete the experience. Our tour guide “crazy” was energetic and informative. Live music, gift shops, a bar and restaurant are all on sight. If your an Marley lover then this is a must visit. Final resting place of Bob his mom his brother and grandparents.
  • Humbling, peaceful place. So much respect for Rasta. We happened to meet Bob Marley's wedding cook while were visiting Portland. He ran an amazingly tasty beach side restaurant. He and his guys took all around the island over the course of 2 weeks. Our most memorable experience was visiting this memorial.
