    I really want to go zip lining, my TA told me it was incredible and i've always wanted to try it. Horseback riding on the ocean sounds so nice too!!!

     

    What is the Bob Marley 9 mile tour and what city is it in? My fiance and i are huge Marley fans and wanted to go see his grave sight and do some type of tour!

      BOB MARLEY NINE MILE TOUR

       
      Our Nine Mile tour will introduce you to a community that helped influence one of the greatest musicians of this century. It will leave you with a better understanding of a young man, whose vision helped change the thoughts of people worldwide. No small achievement for a man who often spoke of his respect for the simple rural life. Respect that helped guide his life. Respect instilled during his youthful days in the small mountain village locals still call Nine Mile.
       
      BOB MARLEY NINE MILE TOUR On this tour you will:
      • Visit Nine Mile village
      • Scenic drive
      • Bob Marley's home
      • "Mount Zion Rock"
      • Fireside
      • Muir House & Brown's Town

      This tour takes you through some of the most breathtaking, picturesque scenery in Jamaica, traveling through Higgins Town and Claremont to the village of Nine Mile, a quaint little place in the beautiful mountains of St. Ann. This is where the legendary "King of Reggae", Bob Marley was born on February 6th 1945, and is the very same place he was later laid to rest.

      The tour starts at the family home where the family’s history began. Many of Bob's close family still lives there. You may run into someone who can tell you stories of Bob's childhood.

      The tour takes you through the house Bob lived in as a young boy, and your Rastafarian guide will share with you little known insights into Bob Marley's childhood and musical career. You will get to stand on "Mount Zion Rock" where Bob used to meditate and rest his head on "the pillow" made famous in the song "Talking Blues". Finally, walk through the mausoleum, which is the final resting place of the Reggae King. You will also see the Fireside where Young Bob Marley cooked his meals as depicted in the song No Woman No Cry quote “we would cook cornmeal porridge of which I share with you".

      Your return trip is a continuation of your excursion, which takes you through rural Jamaica, as you wind your way through scenic Muir House and Brown's Town. You will see the Brown’s Town market, famous for its produce. There is no better way to end your tour as you return to your North Coast destination.
      BOB MARLEY NINE MILE TOUR
       
      Nine Mile is owned and operated by Bob's family. It is not unusual to find his mother, affectionately called Mother B, personally greeting visitors, sometimes even being persuaded to relate stories of her son's childhood. And, if not Mother B, there is always Uncle Lloyd who is never too far away or too busy to tell tales of young Nesta.
