The Bob Marley nine mile tour will take you to the birthplace and final resting place of Robert Nesta Marley, otherwise called Bob Marley. Travel through the hills of the parish of St. Ann, called the garden parish, until you reach Nine Mile, where your Bob Marley tour takes place.
This little village is tucked away in the beautiful mountains of Jamaica and is the birthplace (Feb.6, 1945) of the legendary “King of Reggae”, Bob Marley. It is also the place he was laid to rest. The Bob Marley tour starts with a walk through his home as a young boy, which is now a museum and photo gallery. Your guide will reveal little known insights into Bob Marley’s childhood and musical career. You’ll even have a chance to stand on “Mt. Zion Rock” (Bob’s meditation spot) and rest your head on the “pillow”, made famous in the song “Talking Blues”.
You will see the Bob Marley Mausoleum, where there are two tombs – one where Bob Marley is buried along with his half-brother, Anthony Booker. The second tomb is that of Cedella Booker, Bob Marley’s mother or “Mamma Marley” as she was sometimes called.
After leaving Bob Marley nine mile tour the tour will continue to Columbus Park for sightseeing.
