From Ocho Rios: Bob Marley & Dunn’s River Falls 5-Hour Tour

1. From Ocho Rios: Bob Marley & Dunn’s River Falls 5-Hour Tour

On this 5-hour tour you will be picked up from your cruise ship or another agreed location in Ocho Rios and taken on a scenic drive through rustic rural villages and open farmlands displaying their fresh produce. Throughout the tour you will visit Bob Marley’s childhood home and Dunn’s River Falls, where you climb to the top of the waterfall and admire the magnificent scenery. On reaching Bob Marley’s place, you will begin a walking tour through the house he lived in as a young boy, now a memorabilia and photo gallery. Your Rastafarian guide will share with you little-known insights into Bob’s childhood and musical career, and you will even have the chance to stand on “Mount Zion Rock”, Bob’s meditation spot. The highlight of the tour is of course walking through the revered mausoleum, Bob's final resting place. You will then take an exciting journey through the countryside to see the magnificent 600-foot Dunn’s River Falls. The trained guides will take you to the base of the falls, where you will be given information and suggestions on how to climb to the top of the waterfall. You will follow a human chain link led by your guide as you skillfully make your way to the top. Stop along the way to enjoy interesting spots, such as pools to dive in, slides, and caves that are hidden out of sight. At the top, you can reward yourself for the bravery and accomplishment by having your picture taken. You can then browse the park for unusual souvenir items, visit the food court for a delicious Jamaican meal, or just wander around the lush green garden that will overwhelm you with its natural beauty and warmth.

For boxing day we booked the Jamaica's Duo Tour. When we arrived at the Ocho Rios port with our cruise ship, our guide Richard picked us up from the cruise ship terminal. Richard told us very interesting facts about Jamaica when we were on our way to the Bob Marley House. The house was in a village in the countryside called Nine Mile. We had to drive through all the hills and the landscape was magnificent! We got along with Richie very well and he was very funny and friendly! As we arrived at the Bob Marley House, Richard took us to our guide there. The tour was very interesting and the rastafari guides were singing Bob Marley songs all the time, it was great! After the tour there we were off to the River Falls, which were so extremly crowded. Richie recommended us to go to another smaller fall, and it was great there as there were barely tourists! All in all I can recommend the tour with Richie to everybody! It was amazing and my family and me would definately do it again some time!

just Like Family!

Richard was AWESOME!!! He arrived promptly to pick us up. He was so friendly and personable. He had my family laughing from the time he picked us up until he dropped us off. He was an excellent guide, showing us the local sites and helping us navigate easily through areas of the tour. He also provided cold beverages which were so welcome on the hot day. We will definitely be using Richard's services upon our return to Jamaica!

Amazing time

All I can say is fantastic. Richard our tour guide was and is the best. Our cruise ship was 2.5 hrs late. We did not get the chance to see the Dunn River Falls and that was no problem because Richard made up for it with a tour of the countryside while driving to Bob Marleys house. I asked for some authentic jerked chicken and Richard brought us to this amazing road side BBQ. Great day! Great fun! Thanks again Richard.
