Grand Cayman (Georgetown) Hell Excursion Reviews

Visit Hell -- a group of short, black, limestone formations located in Grand Cayman. It’s touristy, but it’s a must-do (and a great photo op for your cruise scrapbook).
Grand Cayman is very nice.
Grand Cayman is very nice. We went on the Best of Cayman excursion which included Seven Mile Beach, Governor’s Residence, Sea Turtle Farm, Tortuga rum cake, and our final stop was in Hell. Yes, I can honestly say I've been to Hell!

Short stop. Not much to look at. You can have your passport stamped from here. Mostly gift shops capitalizing on the name.

Hell is cute but it's a 5 minute tourist stop. The Tortuga rum cake factory is too but the rum and cake are worth it. We also visited 7 fathoms rum distillery....at 9 am!

It wasn't much. But I was told I could now say I've been to Hell and back. I replied that I've been there and back several times already.

Amvivo was the tour operator and the tour was book through Viator. Our ship docked late and Amvivo did not answer their phone when we tried to call. It took three attempts. 35 minutes after the excursion depart Amvivo answered and said the tour had left. When I asked for a refund because they had not answered, I was told 50%. When I threatened to leave negative reviews, like this one, they agreed to 100%. Read the other reviews for yourself though. You will see I am not the first person to state they do not answer their phone. Read Less

Been here and used to stay on the island and dive so pretty familiar. We just wanted to do something so they took us to Hell (been there--no big deal) and the dolphin place. It really depressed me because they have such a small enclosure. Kind of like if you were relegated to a 15x15 cell and had to do tricks for your food. Their enclosure should be at least the size of a bay in a natural sandy bottom. The only one I have liked is at Anthony's Key where they have an entire bay that is acres in size and it the actual ocean. I found this place woefully depressing to me. Read Less
