We had done the longer tours to the waterfall, etc., on previous visits, so this time we wanted to sightsee around Roseau and decided to give the trolley tour a try. We enjoyed the open-air ride, and our tour guide was charming. The only problem is that there really isn't a lot to see. We went to the botanical gardens... More

Forgot to take a note of the guide's name but he really made the trip for us, he was very knowledgeable about the island. We went to the botanical gardens and he must have known every plant there. Saw lots of brightly coloured humming birds in the trees and a couple of large brightly coloured bugs. Stopped and went into... More

I would strongly recommend giving this a miss. We went on the 1445hrs tour on 26th and were back onboard the ship before 1600hrs. The guide spent the first five minutes stopping the feedback on the public address system with the passengers sitting there being deafened. At the so-called viewpoint we did not get off to take photos as there... More

Elvira was our guide and we had 10 in our shuttle. There was an aisle so it was easy to get in and out of. We went to the Botanical Gardens and walked around. Elvira explained about all the different trees we saw which bore fruit but none were edible. She was very knowledgeable and if there was anything we... More

Upon arriving at Roseau by cruise ship, the tourist has to be aware that this island is very poor in comparison to others. These people have few months to make their living off the tourists so they can be very aggressive. They are just people trying to make a living selling their goods. The cab drivers can be very pushy,... More

If you are cruising and visit this rustic island, hire a driver! We were able to see four times as much for 1/3 the cost of the cruise line (HAL). The drivers are very capable and licensed by their government. We enjoyed four excursions in a little over 5 hours for $35 each. We visited Titou Gorge, the Hot Sulphur... More

What a fun way to tour. The best stop was at the Botanical Gardens where our tour guide gave an excellent easy paced walking tour of the local flora and fauna. There were photo opps stops, churches and we delighted to see the many schools with with happy children. The last stop was for a rum punch (180 proof) at... More

Spent a nice afternoon going through most of the shops looking for something to take home for myself and gifts. I found most things were made in the USA, and with a 15% VAT tax really expensive. I did find one shop that had some really nice hand-made gifts, made by the people working in the store. It was Juittle's... More
