Freeport City Tour Excursion Reviews
Too long and annoying
We had originally planned the ATV adventure, but had to cancel before sailing because I had to have surgery and did not think I would be up to this. SO while on the ship we went to the excursions desk to see if anything looked fun and easy! As this day was our 22nd year anniversary. We decided on a trip on a boat around the island, “unlimited rum included” then a stop in town for shopping. We meet right off the ship and headed into town, the bus was just fine, the driver did fine and the guide was informative. They dropped us off for about an hour and half at the shopping area in town. Then they were to pick us up and head to the boat part (this is why we booked). We waited for about 30 minutes at the designated area. During this time hearing rumors that the boat was broken. Once back on the shuttle our guide did not speak to us at all. We were all taken back to the port and dropped off. Our money was refunded. SO that was fine, I was just sad that we really didn’t get to see or do anything in this port! It was our first time here. But we still enjoyed our self’s! Come to find out the generator broke, stuff happens.
Did not see much of the city before we went to the The Garden of the Grove tour.
We booked the tour on the dock, finding a taxi driver who would give us a tour of the area of $30 each (6 of us). He drove us around the Freeport area, took us to a definite downmarket flea market and gave us lots of history of the area. On the way back to the ship, we passed the Sands Brewery that offered tours. We made an unscheduled stop, took the tour, sampled the merchandise and made it back to the ship in plenty of time for the departure.
There is nothing in this city worth touring. We drove through housing additions. It was a waste of time and money. I would NOT recommend it.
