Once you meet your awesome Jamaican tour guide at the cruise port of Ocho Rios, you will begin your adventure through the town of Ocho Rios and up through Jamaica’s scenic mountainsides.
Your private tour guide will take you up the rugged and beautiful roads that carve through the famous Jamaican mountains. This is a bumpy but awe-inspiring ride as you pass by old plantations, tiny villages and listen to the stories your guide tells of fair Jamaica. The landscape is truly breathtaking and the vegetation is lush with fruit trees of all kinds lining the roadside. The people in the mountain villages live very basic lives but are always jovial. They are one with the earth. Watch out as the young kids race alongside your bus, roll down your window, feel the fresh mountain wind in your face, listen to the beats of Bob Marley on the speakers and maybe even pop open a Jamaican Red Stripe Beer.
Your next stop on this adventure is Nine Miles, the birthplace and final resting place of the legendary Bob Marley. At the Bob Marley Mausoleum you will be taken on a guided tour of the small home where Bob Marley was born and raised. The admission fee (included in tour price) goes toward the maintenance of the Bob Marley Mausoleum and to his family members, many of whom still live in this very area and who assist thousands of Bob Marley fans to pay their respects one of the greatest men who ever lived.
Your guide will show you around, tell you the real stories about Bob Marley’s life, some conspiracies and answer any questions you may have. Take it all in. This is Nine Miles – the place that influenced Bob Marley to write some of his most influential and famous lyrics. This is where the King of Reggae was born.
After leaving Nine Miles and this amazing experience, your private guide will continue the journey down the mountain through the beautiful Fern Gully rainforest! As you travel down the meandering road lined with lush tropical trees, you can choose to stop at one of the quirky little craft market stands or continue on to the town of Ocho Rios for some more shopping and sightseeing! From Ocho Rios your guide will take you back to the port of Ocho Rios, stopping along the way for lunch at the famous Scotchies! Here you can sample some of the best Jerk Chicken and Pork in Jamaica and watch as it is cooked fresh over a pimento wood fire!
If you are Vegan or Vegetarian, there is a cool little Rasta Vegan Restaurant close to Bob Marley’s home that your guide can take you. Just let him know in advance.
Shopping and lunch are optional stops on the Ocho Rios Bob Marley Tour & Sightseeing. You can choose to spend more time at the Bob Marley Mausoleum or visit another site in Ocho Rios, as long as it stays within the given time-frame. Just let your tour guide know in advance and he will be happy to accommodate.
