What To Expect

Meeting at the cruise port to match your cruise ship porting times, your air conditioned vehicle heads on a scenic drive along Wickham's Cay.

Sights such as a century-old prison along Main Street known as Her Majesty's Prison. This historic prison dates back to the late 1700s and is Road Town's oldest prison. The prison is nestled between the Road Town Method Church and St. George's Anglican Church and had come a long way since its days of prison when it stopped operating in prison in 1995 to being a police station, fire department, passport office and the future location of a new museum.

Then we head to the famous Sunday Morning Well, the location where the Proclamation of Emancipation of 1834 was read aloud to inform the public that slavery was abolished.

Stunning views over the Island are on offer as we through the Old Plantation to Josiah's Bay peak, followed by a trek up north to Fahie Hill to take more amazing photos of Road Town.

Then our tour takes us to the highest peak on the island at Sage Mountain to enjoy a 25-minute stop at Sage Mountain Bar and Restaurant as you sip on your complimentary drink.

You'll also get to spend time at the historic Mount Healthy National Park, a national site that houses the remains of a stone windmill from the island's sugar plantation era.

At the end of the tour we head to Tortola's west coast here you will find scenic views of its sister islands. Sure to take your breath away the are Norman Island and Dead Chest Island, an uninhabited national park that's a snorkeler's cove with places like Coral Gardens.

You'll also get to catch breathtaking views of the palm tree lined coastline of Peter Island and the lush mountain landscapes of Salt Island and Cooper Island. Conclude your tour by reflecting on your relaxing time in Tortola as you return to your pier.

Great overview of the island.

Great intro to Tortola!
We only had 5 hours in Tortola and had never been to this island so we wanted a overview ...and our driver was great. Small bus and we went around and over the entire island...stopping at senic picture spots for pic time. He was able to answer all our questions and gave us a great historical perspective on the island' s development. Loved this tour..perfect for first timers.
An Experience that Should Not Be Missed

My mom, sister and I had the chance to go on this excursion on Thursday, March 12 with Ramdat. By some weird circumstances, we ended up being the only ones to book this excursion from our cruise ship, the Norwegian Encore. In spite of this, we were still provided a large and comfortable shuttle van for our excursion. Quick side note: It was very easy to locate our meeting place and arrive at the van for our tour. From there, we were given some of the history of Road Town before venturing up higher into the hilly mountainsides. The roads on Tortola are quite the experience. They are steep and narrow and it's often hard to believe that they're two-way roads. Ramdat was a very skilled and patient driver though and I felt at ease throughout our journey. While driving across the island, he did a great job of sharing information about the history and culture of BVI. He provided us with various anecdotes, answered our questions and constantly checked in on how we were enjoying our experience. He also stepped in as our photographer at times so we could have some group shots of the 3 of us. Overall, this was a great excursion to introduce us to the wonders of Tortola. We would definitely recommend this to others.

Really enjoyed our tour. The tour guide was wonderful. He knew a lot about the island and answered all our questions. I had a walker and he was very helpful with this and had me sit up front in the van to make it easier for me.

A very interesting and beautiful tour the driver was very knowledgeable and fun. Great driver to navigate that bus thru the small streets. There was a guide who was learning and she was not very helpful as I am sure it was her first day. But he filled in just perfectly. Highly recommend this tour.
