The tour was called "The Grand Turk Experience" & was really good. We stopped at the salt pond where we could do a little shopping which I found expensive but then everything has to be imported. The guide told us how much it costs to import a car, unreal!! The next stop was at the lighthouse where wild donkeys walked around. There was a lot of different birds around the island & the beach beside the port looked lovely.
After the non narrated ride to the great house the chef J C Irie & his staff were very good & fun. We took a little walk in the garden then went to the back verandah overlooking the ocean in the distance where the cooking took place. Everyone helped out with cutting scallions, collard greens & rubbing spices on the chicken & some people cooked the chicken & other tasks. An unusual event took place when a member of our tour dropped to his knees & proposed to his girl right in front of my station. She said yes. I enjoyed the meal altho' the chicken was a bit spicy for my taste. I liked the Festivals. We took a little tour of the lovely house. I really enjoyed the tour. On the way down the drive we saw some Camels which was strange.
I took the HOHO Miami City Tour with drop off at FLL airport. There was a bit of a wait before the tour started & darned if it didn't start to rain. We were given a rain poncho to wear so that was good. There were 2 routes that you could take which were both available at Bayside. I just stayed on the bus to see the sights of both tours then came back to the terminal & ate at Bubba Gumps before getting the 2:00 pm transfer to FLL airport .
