Your roundtrip tour takes you from your ship, hotel or villa 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, this is the very same place he was later laid to rest.
The tour starts at the family’s house where the family’s history began. Many of Bob's close family still lives there, including his mother, affectionately known as Mother B and Uncle Lloyd her brother, who tells tales of Bob's childhood.
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 sons 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.
The actual tour starts with a walk through the very same house that Bob lived in as a young boy (now a memorabilia and Photo gallery). Your Rastafarian guide will share with you little known insights into the 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'). The highlight of the tour is of course walking through the beautiful mausoleum, Bob's final resting place.
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.

If you are ever in Jamaica , we would like to personally invite you to come see, come be... with Bob Marley and his family at Nine Mile.
Why is it called Nine Mile?
The town is called Nine Mile because it is approximately 1 mile from another town called Eight Mile.The other town which is called Seven Mile is also 1 mile from Eight Mile, so at the Nine Mile marker the town is called Nine Mile....This has nothing to do in referrence to Eminem's movie titled Eight Mile.
