A unique opportunity to visit the birthplace of the “King of Reggae”.
This tour takes you from your hotel to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Jamaica, travelling via Higgins Town and Claremont to the village of Nine Mile, a quaint village in the beautiful mountain of St. Ann. It was here, on the 6th of February 1945 that the legendary “King of Reggae” was born and it is the very same place where he was later laid to rest.
A tour of Nine Mile is a family affair as many of Bob’s close friends live there, including his mother, affectionately known as mother B.
The tour takes you through the house Bob lived in as a young boy and you Rastafarian guide will share insights into Bob Marley’s musical childhood career. Stand on “Mount Zion Rock” where Bob use to meditate and rest your head on “The Pillow” made famous in his song “Talking Blues”. Finally, walk through the mausoleum, which is in his final resting place.
The return trip takes you further into rural Jamaica as you wind your way through picturesque Lime Hall and St. Ann’s Bay back to the North Coast.
A see must for Bob Marley and Reggae music fans.
