Visit the King of Reggae with a local private guide from Ocho Rios!


On February 6th 1945, the legendary "King of Reggae" was born, and it is in this very same place that he was later laid to rest.

Nine Mile is a quaint little village tucked away in the beautiful hills of Saint Ann, Jamaica. This is where international reggae superstar Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was born and later laid to rest. This tour will take you through the little house Bob lived as a child. Your Rastafarian tour guide will share with you bits and pieces of insights into Bob's childhood and musical journey.

Come, see Mount Zion "Rock" where the legend once meditate while being inspired to pen his many revolutionary anthems that are today being sung worldwide.
Then reverently walk through his mausoleum, the final resting place of the "King", and light him a candle.
Come and interact with a remote village that helped to influence one of the greatest musicians of the century. You will be left with a clearer understanding of a young man whose vision helped change the thoughts of many people worldwide.

A Recent Review of this tour

Richard was such a joy to be with. He welcomed my whole family (2 Adults and 2 young Children) with open arms and a contagious laugh! He drove us from the port of Ocho Rios to Nine Mile and educated us the entire way. His vehicle was meticulously clean and well air conditioned. He even provided all sorts of beverages free of charge. I would recommend Richard for any excursion throughout the island of Jamaica. We hope we can come back one day and hire Richard again!
