This was an included tour with no bathroom break. Dominica is a very poor island and there isn't a lot of buy. My husband found a T shirt he liked but he had to buy 2 extra large and he has to hope it shrinks. We went to a botanical garden that was heavily damaged in 2017 and they haven't planted much since. We spent 40 minutes at a place where blind people make things for sale. But it was very hot in there and I felt like we were being kept there so that we would make donations or buy things but when they finally did let us go there wasn't much time to buy anyting. We were rushed on to the ship. Read Less

This tour was great but be prepared to hang around as you get on the bus, it doesnt move until the bus is full so you could be on the bus from anything from 10 minutes to 20 minutes waiting. Other than that the tour was o.k. Not as many stops as I would have liked but we got to see the island and that was the main thing. After the tour we had a walk around the shopping areas which I loved as it was very native. Great place to visit. Read Less

Our tour included Trafalgar Falls as well as Emerald Pool. Both were beautiful & our tour guide was wonderful (Ruth Ann). One of the odd things that I appreciated most is that towards the end of the tour, rather than Ruth Ann suggesting/reminding that we should tip her & the driver (which we've seen on many, many other islands) she requested that if we really enjoyed ourselves on the tour that we should help her promote Dominica so that more people will come to visit & see for themselves. The specific excursion we booked was called Dominica's Favorites. For the price I thought it was a good value compared to some other excursions we've done in the past. Read Less

Went to Ti Tou Gorge, Trafalgar Falls, Botanical Gardens, Champagne Reef Snorkel. Enjoyed the falls and the cave but that water was really cold. Champagne Reef was a hard walk to get into the water near the reef. Make sure not to wear flip-flops but good water shoes. There are big rocks then small rocks to walk on and you have to sit on a big piece of rubber to get into the water since it is so rocky. Great tour guides and enjoyed. Read Less

Because of my lack of sleep I my restless leg syndrome was making it hard for me to function well during the day, so we opted out of the 4 hour tour to Trafalgar Falls. The shore excursion office was almost difficult about changing our reservation but finally agreed to switch us to a shorter trolley tour of the city - that one got cancelled because the trolley broke down so we ended up on an island tour which was nothing special.

This was a long day with no meal breaks! The excursion began at 9:30 and we did not return to the ship until after 3. We began with a snorkel from shore at the Champagne reef. This involved a rather long walk along the beach over rocks - definitely not for anyone with mobility issues. The water was clear and we saw a few fish - not worth the hassle of getting out there. We then went to Trafalagar Falls ( very pretty) and A gorge. The tour was to finish at the Botanical Gardens but by then our group of 8 was tired and hungry so we ended the day a bit early Read Less

Our tour guide Asha Hill met us about a block from the pier and proceeded to give us a very informative tour of parts of the island. He stopped to show us plants and sights.

Beautiful island and appropriately named Nature Island. Great time and our guid Asha was excellent! Read Less

Before the cruise, I scheduled a tour with Levi of Bumping Tours. He was very responsive to email and did not require any kind of deposit ahead of time. He met us outside the cruise terminal and loaded the 12 of us into his very clean, air conditioned van to head to Champagne Reef. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the bubbles on the reef, but the snorkeling was great. Fairly clear water even in the rain, with beautiful coral, fish and even a turtle or two. Levi was a very competent swimmer/diver and pointed out several underwater items I would have missed otherwise. After the swim, he had beer, soda and water for all of us. The next stop was Titou Gorge. Unfortunately the rain made the current to fast to wade up to the waterfalls. Bummer. It was still fun to see. All along the trip Levi would point out different spice trees and fruit growing wild on the side of the road. We then made two stops, one to dual waterfalls and one to an overlook about the city of Roseau. Everyone had a great trip even in the rain! Read Less
