Grand Turk City Tour Excursion Reviews
We took a trolley/tram tour through town and visited the lighthouse. It was a great view of the historic city and the lighthouse.
Went around the island, our tour guide was so nice,
There are upscale jewellery stores right at the dock. Do not go beyond these stores.
Grand Turk is an impoverished, garbage strewn island, with wild dogs and donkeys roaming around free, and their piles of dedication everywhere. The downtown core consisted of a few shacks selling see shells and trinkets. We were also taken to a locked, rusted out lighthouse. You will see children playing on piles of garbage which fill the yards of the shacks they live in. We could not fathom why the cruise line would make this a port to stop at. The guide said there is a little industry or employment opportunities. DO NOT GET OFF THE SHIP AT GRAND TURK!!!!!
Grand Turk. Took general tour of island. Since first time here, was a good overall tour.
2 blocks of shacks
The tour was part city and beach. We stopped near a haunted house near the beach for pictures, then onto a church with red shutters. Next was the salt flats which was vacant of the flamingos which are usually present. Next was the Governor's beach, which was beautiful and the water was warming than at Princess Cays. A beautiful island with the best prices form alcohol of all the places we visited.
The port area was great. Lots of shops, great beach, pool and places to eat.
Town was disappointing and sad. Nothing original in any of the shops and anyplace to eat was kind of scary.
