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.
Had a snorkel tour booked but cancelled due to rough seas.
Had a snorkel tour booked but cancelled due to rough seas. Booked a cheap Island tour on getting off boat and covered the Island highlights for a few hours before returning and walking around by ourselves in hilly town.

Glenroy owner of Gifted Taxi Service took us on a full Day tour of Grenada. First of all Grenada is a rain forrest paradise. This tour was amazing and he took us through the forest and constantly pointed out the trees and let us try many amazing fruits and herbs. We went to the waterfalls which were stunning. We went to the Spice Factory and the Chocolate Factory and he took us all over the island to the most beautiful spots. He was very nice to my kids and I highly recommend this company. Read Less

Cutty has been recommended by live aboard sailors currently in Grenada. He did not disappoint! He took us to the nutmeg factory, the chocolate factory, the Calabash Hotel, and lots of places in between! He knows the plant life on the island and stopped several times to pick the fruit for us to taste or to pull some leaves for us to crush and smell. He was an outstanding driver on the rutted roads and an excellent tour guide! On top of that he is a fine gentleman! Read Less

We took the Grand Etang park, Fr. Frederick & Annadale Falls tour with Raymond. All shops closed at 1pm on Saturdays. The tour was very nice though. The black sand beach was my favorite spot. Plenty of restroom stops during the tour. There were a lot of people along the way that try to sell you stuff which became annoying but we just said no and walked away. Alice was a wonderful lady at Ft. Frederick and talked a lot about the island and the fort. 20 minutes at the fort, 10 minutes at the black beach, 20 minutes at the Grand Etang park and 15 minutes at the falls. Plenty of time at each location. Read Less

Mr. Meddy is very professional, and our day with him was full and very informative. He is a family man, his wife is an educator, he takes his guide service seriously and his Nissan van is clean and very comfortable. Working with him via the Internet was easy and we had no problem using email to set our itinerary, pricing and arrangements. A private tour for my wife and I with Allan lasted from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and included essentially a circumnavigation of the island for $180. Being retired educators and fairly experienced travelers, we had told Allan ahead of time that we were not interested in touristy sites, but preferred to see those things he thought would give us the best understanding of his home country. As a result, our tour included visits to Concord Waterfall, Carib’s Leap and Grand Etang Lake, as well as personal tours of the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Facility, the Diamond Chocolate Facility and River Antoine Distillery. The advantage of having Allan as our guide became obvious at each of the three tour sites where we were kept separate from the bus tours and given personalized attention. A native and lifetime resident of Grenada, Allan’s pride in his country is obvious, and he has worked hard to study and prepare himself for any questions or concerns that may come up during a tour. Having spent our one day in port with Mr. Meddy has undoubtedly given us a depth of knowledge about Grenada that we could not have possibly gotten any other way. We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to have spent our day with him, and have no reservations about encouraging others to do the same. Read Less

We had a great experience with JNJ Tour (the contact is Stan Grainger grainger.stan@gmail.com). I read many great reviews on cruise critics about his tour and got his contact from the review board. He replied to my email immediately, gave me all the information I needed, explained the tour very well and most importantly he picked us up at the port on time with a good fully A/C van. His english is great and he went above our expectations, giving us lot of information about the island while visiting it with his van. He was nice, flexible, a great tour guide! At the end of the tour he left us at Grand Anse Beach and waited for two hours. He then brought us back to the ship. We loved his tour and Grenada. We highly recommend JNJ. Read Less

It was just the two of us and our guide. I was very thankful he was a good driver as the roads were extremely narrow and twisty and we were forever meeting up with another vehicle on a bend. We visited a spice plantation and arrived before the other groups. It was nice. We got a personal tour of the place. They had sealed spices and cocoa so you could bring some home if you wished. I opted for the cocoa which I've been enjoying back home. The guide made a point of showing us a sign regarding the help they received from the US when communist rebels tried to overthrow the government. He said they were very grateful. We enjoyed the tour in spite of the roads. Read Less

Our tour visited Fort George and then spent two hours at Aquarium Beach Club. The guide was very knowledgeable, and gave us a steady stream of information on Grenada history, tropical fruits, fishing, local customs etc. The fort has interesting history and fabulous views. Aquarium Beach Club is south of famous Grand Anse Beach. It is a steep beach and there were 1-3 foot waves, which some people found difficult. The beach is shaded by large trees, and has a nice bar. There is a small group of locals politely selling spices and crafts. Read Less

Grand Etang, Annadale Falls, & Fort Frederick tour with Quinton was enjoyable. His English was impeccable with little accent. My first time to Grenada and I was pleasantly surprised as to how much pride was on this island. Homes were larger and more modern and very well landscaped. The sights were interesting and the driver was very cautious as well as slow enough to see what Quinton was sharing. There were short stops along the way for village shopping as well as plenty of bathroom breaks. The Falls are interesting Be ware of the guys wanting to show you how they jump off the cliffs and want money if you take their picture. I Recommend this tour.I did not get off at the Fort. Read Less

This is one of the worst ports that I have ever seen. At the end of the pier there is no state of the art shopping center but rather the poor shacks and individual shops that you would be leery being near. If it weren't for our excursion we would have stayed on the ship. As far as the excursion goes it consisted of a one hour ride each way along narrow winding roads with blind corners up 1900ft with almost no guard rails and sometimes only inches between the road and hundreds of feet drops. The tubing was only about 40 minutes long and had about four stops where you had to hold on to a line stretched across the river so that you could wait for the guides to catch up as each set of rapids had to have someone there to keep you from getting held up on the rocks.The people working the excursions and driving the van were all very nice but that doesn't make up for the poor experience. All in all a very poor country with plenty of potential. But it is kind of hard to enjoy potential. Read Less

Our tour guide, Mandoo was excellent and apparently well-liked by those on the island. He was to meet us inside the terminal and the staff there were quick to point him out. In addition, one couple from our tour ran late and since this wasn't an advance pay, we thought they might have changed their mind or were sick. We started driving out of the port and Mandoo got a call from one of the security guards to tell him they finally showed up. We turned around and picked them up. We drove to Douglaston spice depot where he gave a presentation on all the spices. From there we drove through the lush volcanic mountains and saw the trees growing with the spices, cocoa andother fruit. Another stop was for a view of the Grand Etang crater lake (not very grand) with descriptions of the lake and surrounding areas. We did a walk on the nature trail in the rain forest and got to see some Mona monkeys that Mandoo stopped to feed. Great photo opps and delightful descriptions of the island. Mandoo definitely loves his job and his island..Annandale waterfall. Read Less

Grenada was more vibrant, busier and more affluent than the other three. For those who want to shop Grenada had the first establishment that could be called a mall. We walked up to St. George Fort and than hired a taxi to give us a tour of the island. We were shown places that would not be on a regular ship excursion and had a wonderful time and got a reall feel for how Grenadans live. We stopped for drinks at Sails Restaurant and Bar at the waterfront. If you are looking for beautiful views, excellent service and a nice clean restaurant we highly recommend this one. The bar man was excellent and our young waiter provided excellent service and was extremely polite and considerate.There is a tunnel near the restaurant that takes you directly to the pier. Read Less
