Arrived on the P&O Ship Arcadia, on what was reported to be the 'hottest day' of the years so far (Nov 2014). What a great place to visit. Went ashore by tender and arrived at the site of the new Cruise Terminal just being built. Once ashore, it's a short walk into town, although we were picked up by our... More

Our cruise ship was only in Tortola for five hours and it is also a tender port so we booked the Sea & See excursion through the ship for $84 @ to avoid getting left behind. The open air bus picked us up at the dock and headed into the mountains. Way up in the mountains. Tip: Be on the... More

Visited here on an excursion from our cruise ship. First sight was a little disappointing. Just looked like a main road going through the Island. We thought this was the main street but after askingone of the locals we were directed through a little alleyway which brought us on to the aactual shopping area. There's not an awful lot of...

Flying into Beef Island Tortola is a freaky experience! Let me say this...don't look out the window! The bus ride to the marina was OMG! SCARY. The bus driver was wonderful. He lived there and new the island and it's culture and the history. It's dirty and old. But it's very very cultural. Another bucket list do. Sail out from... More

We came with the Princess cruise ship and made port at Road Town. We disembarked and waited for the Princess road trip around Tortola, BVI. We left on the tour around the island and found some very bad roads. There was about three sets of large switchbacks we needed to cross. Sometimes the large truck had to back up in... More

We took a small bus tour of the island after our scuba diving trip turned into a disaster. We began the tour at the cruise port. We learned a lot about the island. We got to visit a sugar cane museum, rum distillery, and a gorgeous beach that had tiny fish that would swim next to you!

The beautiful 4 acre botanic gardens are in the centre of Road Town and are worth a visit even if you have seen others on the BVI or Caribbean islands. Walk along narrow Main Street which runs through the centre of town and retains loads of West Indian charm with colourful traditional wooden and stone buildings. Look for the 19th... More

We were in Tortola for a cruise stop. The countryside is beautiful. The ride to Pussers Landing was winding and got to see lots of local flavor.

We were interested in a rental car for our vacation on Tortola. I read some other reviews of car rental companies on Tortola and decided on Dede's. The car was almost brand new. In perfect condition and just what we needed. Here's the most amazing part. Dede's arranged to have our car waiting for us at our villa upon our... More

My family and I visited Road Island, Tortola, BVI on a recent cruise. The Island is one of the better islands on the itinerary. When you arrive you will find many offers to take you around the island. We were reluctant at first to take one of those tours but because we liked the `guide` (Captain Friendly) we decided to...
