  • I was there years ago, I remember that x get up there starting from it took quite a while and guys a crazy heat. We went with an 80' Toyota corolla accompanied by 2 Jamaican boys who with only 20 degrees more gasoline took us to the rhythm of reggae music.

  • The historical Bob Marley Museum is a great place to tour and learn about how Bob lived his life in New Kingston. You learn about the highs and the lows and learn about the life of this iconic musician. His home was quaint and beautiful. Sad that Viva the roots man shop is no longer there. It was a nice spot to have a healthy and refreshing drink after the tour. Glad that someone on the premises was able to tell me where he moved to.
  • My visit to Bob Marley’s house was completely not what I expected. Our tour guide had so much good and positive energy and that really stood out. During the tour he would sing songs, make jokes and keep the good energy up no matter what. The tour guides really appear to know about Bob Marley’s life and do a good job of not only entertaining but also teaching people. The inside of the house has been entirely transformed into a museum, it was amazing to see the studio where albums were made. The premises also offer a great variety of food with awesome iced coffees and smoothies. Plenty of veggie options as well. Amazing experience overall!
