Soak as much as possible in 3-4 hours (SAFARI TRUCK Island tours with Ned Phillps)

If you arrive on a cruise and have very limited time on Tórtola, Ned Phillps of Island Tours (I hope this is the parent company; it's the only related listing I found) will show you as much as possible, starting with a drive across the few streets that make up the town. Then he ascends the mountain, from which we... More

Fell in love with the island and the kindness of the people along with it's beauty .. Words just can't describe how beautiful it truly is! Don't be afraid to take backroads but get a local driver! They are really crazy drivers over there you'll need that experience in an auto! Food there is outstanding and very fresh. Don't miss... More

We had a terrific tour guide, the car was expansive and comfortable, we stopped many times along the way for photos; and, even for refreshments; and, a bathroom break. The highlight was stopping at Cane Garden Beach; and, spending about an hour around the delightful beach, enjoying cool refreshments; and, sampling the local flavor. We LOVED it!

Just came back from a cruise out of Miami, St Thomas, Tortola, and Bahamas. It was nothing short of AMAZING. Tortola was beautiful, and a great island feel. We grabbed a taxi right at the port gate. It was suppose to be $20 for a 2 1/2 hour tour around the island with a stop at Cane bay for 45... More

Was a great place to end with on our Caribbean tour, the slow pace was a relaxing day we spent ashore doing a little souvenir shopping and the relaxed way of life here. I could move to almost anyone of these island and be happy for the rest of my days

We have just visited the Island as part of a Thomson cruise and it was a fantastic Island. When we got off the cruise ship, there are plenty of tours you can join at a very reasonable rate of 15/20 us dollars. this takes you around the Island up to the highest point so you can really get at the...

Amazing view and adventure, but not for everyone. The beaches are pristine and beautiful but the major draw back is how long it takes to go from one side of the bath to the other. People that have back/knee/ankle problems beware, there are a lot of uneven stairs and slippery rocks. There are lockers on one side of the baths.... More

Too crowded with cruise passengers and the bar not very good. Supposed "rum punch" served in small plastic cup was nothing like the real thing.

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
