A must see place in Jamaica a heart pounding experience. Take a step back into the world of reggae. This is a tour not to be missed. The music and the history of Bob Marley is a great time. Will be back again.
Loved it! The tour was so enlightening. I learned things about Bob's upbringing that I didn't know. Being from Jamaica & visiting for so many years, I was determined to go to the Bob Marley Museum this year. I'm so glad I made it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the Kingston area.
Guides are very knowledgeable and bubbly when leading the tour. Bobs house was cool. The little movie after the tour gets you if it’s a hot day and you sit down in a comfy seat with the cold ac blasting you tend to fall asleep very quickly but not cause it’s boring but more cause it’s comfortable. I would say the tours be a bit smaller group number. I was apart of a big group and it seemed everyone kinda squeezing to see everything at the same time.
I'd recommend the tour.. we brought a local and they said they enjoyed the tour as well. Theres something for everyone to take away from this place. The history was awesome. Our tour guide was well informed and charismatic. It's a cool space to check out.
100% Official.. It's worth every dollar.. A must stop... To think I was at the legends house... The highlight of my trip
