Grand Turk City Tour Excursion Reviews

See historic 18th and 19th-century style buildings that mirror the Bermudan-style architecture of the salt-raking era on a city tour in Grand Turk. You may even see a horse or donkey roaming the narrow alleys.
We did the top 10, with only 3 stops.

Grand Turk is still very much ravaged from past hurricanes and is in the middle of trying to rebuild. Seeing the donkeys, which have been turned loose since the days of salt flat mining, all over the island was interesting. We stopped at the lighthouse, but you had to pay to walk right up to it, or to get close to any of the other attractions located there. Read Less

In Grand Turk we just got off the boat and took the trolley tour around part of the island. It was a nice tour stopping at a small shopping area, at the lighthouse, and by one of the salt ponds, Our guide was so much fun and gave us a demonstration of how they once raked the salt from the ponds and pointing out the still evident damage from the hurricanes. He gave us historical and fun facts about the island. The tour lasted 2 hours and we used the rest of the time in port viewing the John Glen exhibit and on the beach. Read Less

The tour was just ok. Gave us an opportunity to see the island and the culture of the residents within. Donkeys are able to roam the streets wildly. We did stop at a beach to take some awesome photos, however, it wasn't a beach we could swim in. We got to witness some male donkeys in a confrontation which was a bit of a surprise. Read Less

It rained.

It rained. The open air bus did not have drop down canvas to protect us from the rain. Nevermind, it was hot and the rain was a welcome respite. Tour itself was boring. Island was very dirty. Rubbish everywhere.

Our tour guide took us on an air conditioned bus through the city showing us various historic areas and explaining the history of the city to us. He took us to a lighthouse where there are wild donkeys who walk right up to you as soon as you get off the bus to go to the gift shop. We then went to a lodge where we were served lunch, which consisted of the local food of the island which was delicious! We were able to go to a few gift shops within walking distance from where we had lunch. We did not have any time to go to the beach this day, there was too much to see on the tour. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed we didn't get to the beautiful beach. Read Less

Grand Turk is a dry island with little salt ponds everywhere. There is no grass or flowers but the ocean is beautiful. Donkeys walk around aimlessly and come up to you for food. Skip the downtown area; looks like a third world country.
