Grenada Island Tour Excursion Reviews

With its emerald hillsides, tropical forests, and sun-drenched beaches, Grenada is truly a feast for the senses. No building here may be built higher than a coconut palm.

Absolutely the worst tour of the cruise. We were stuck in the back seat of noisy van and could not even hear the driver. While the island is beautiful, the roads are horrible. Lots of potholes, narrow and many hairpin curves. Our tour took us to a waterfall, spice farm, rum distillery and a craft brewery. While each stop was fine the drive in between each stop was dreadful. Between the second and third stops we drove non stop for almost two hours. A terrible experience. The highlight of the excursion besides the end was the stop at the West Indies Beer Company If only we could have stayed there for the whole day. Great beer with a number of varieties. Read Less

We went on the Mountain Rainforest, Grand Etang Lake and Annandale Falls Island tour. We spent most of the time on a cramped bus driving all over the island. We finally got to the Etang Lake location which was far away from the lake. We took a few photos and then went to the Annandale falls, a typical water fall where you will be asked by many people to give them money to jump off a cliff or to take a picture with their monkey. Very disappointing. Read Less

I really, really wanted to see the Alhambra, but that was not going to happen o this NCL tour. Only after we got there were we told that if we wanted to see the inside, we could buy tickets during our one hour of free time. Lines for buying tickets were two hours. Everyone thought they were included in the price. There is no other reason to go to Granada. If our bus driver had driven us around the block one more time to point out the blight that was once a world's fair, I would have screamed. Add to that that the tour was marked 'easy' for walking, even though it warned of uneven pavement, cobblestone streets and at least two hours of walking. People who should have been in wheelchairs or using walkers showed up and for whatever reason, didn't know there was so much walking and wanted wheelchairs. I blame them for not reading the description clearly and NCL for marking the tour 'easy'. Either way, our walk slowed to a crawl and we didn't even get through the walking tour part. And, thanks to NCL, I will never get to see the Alhambra. Nine hours of my life wasted. Read Less

We had a private taxi tour with Sheldon from Royalty Taxi and Tours. His van was spotless and we again learned so much from him and saw so much in the 5 hours. He manoeuvred the narrow, windy roads expertly! We visted the Dougaldston Spice Estate, the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station, the Diamond Chocolate Factory, Grand Etang National Park and Grand Etang Crater Lake, and Annandale Falls. We only had time left to drive up to Fort Frederick and had a great view of the port. Read Less

Just got off the ship and joined a group to tour the island with a local taxi driver. About 9 of us in total. Took in about 6 different stops. We could choose where we wanted to go and where we wanted to stop. Extra costs for visiting certain sights. At the end, some passengers were dropped at the beach and then picked up a few hours later by the same driver. The driver was super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Total time was about 4 hours of touring for just US$20. Read Less

Not much to see other than beautiful plants. The bus ride up to the top was windy, narrow and scary, and it's a very impoverished island. The lake wasn't much to see. Lots of things that the tour guide pointed out were destroyed by a hurricane a few years ago. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and gave a great explanation of the U.S. military involvement in Grenada in 1983. Read Less

Our tour (of 11) went out to the Grand Etang crater lake, the old River Antoine Rum Distillery, Jouvay Chocolate factory tour, a nutmeg factory tour, and a local lunch buffet.

Our first tour with P&O. We did the rum and chocolate tour with a stop at Grand Etang lake. We saw a lot of the island by car and it is beautiful. Poorer than you expect though as its still recovering from a bad hurricane. Great tour and good value for money. We took a wander around the town at about 4pm-ish and felt a bit out of place. Not unsafe, but we didn't linger long. Another good shopping centre by port if you need bits like water and beers. Read Less
