Your tour will begin with pickup from your Montego Bay hotel. The journey is approximately 2 hours to Nine Miles and you will travel comfortably in a minivan. 

Nine Mile is where Bob Marley’s musical career began and also influenced many of his songs. Get a 1.5 hour tour of the Bob Marley Mausoleum, managed by members of Marley’s family, from a Rastafarian guide. This tour includes both birth place and burial place of Bob Marley, his childhood home and a cottage with two rooms that contain artifacts of Bob Marley's family.

You will also be shown a Rasta-colored ‘rock pillow’ on which Marley laid his head when seeking inspiration. His body lies buried along with his guitar in a 2.5 m-tall (8.2 ft) oblong marble mausoleum inside a small church of traditional Ethiopian design. There are two mausoleums on the property. The first entered is Mama Marley’s. The second entombs Marley.

Culminate your tour with a visit to Gift Shop and a vegetarian restaurant.

You will then be transported for 2 hour sightseeing and shopping tour in Ocho Rios, the tourism capital of St. Ann.  Here, you will be able to select your various souvenirs and crafts, etc, to ensure a long and lasting memory.  Don't forget your cameras.

When it's all done journey back to your hotel by approximately 5 PM, and reminisce on the wonder of it all.
