Our Bob Marley Mausoleum tour will take you to Nine Mile, 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 love of the simple, rural life. Love instilled during his youthful days in the small mountain village that locals still call Nine Mile.
• Visit to Bob Marley’s Final resting place
This tour takes you through some of the most 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 6, 1945, and is the very same place he was later laid to rest.
The tour starts at the family home where their history began. Many of Bob’s family members still live 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 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”–“we would cook cornmeal porridge of which I share with you.”
Your return trip is a continuation of your excursion. You’ll travel through rural Jamaica, winding your way through scenic Muir House and Brown’s Town, where you’ll see the Brown’s Town market, which is famous for its produce. There is no better way to end your tour as you return to your North Coast destination.
