The title says it all. The guide was a very nice young person, and we were provided with some details of the plantation (sketchy though some may have been). However, we got much more info about her personal life. We enjoyed our warm welcome from the on-site basket weaver. Overall, it was an interesting tour. We did find walking the... More

There is not much in the way of cultural or historical interest here in Providenciales. We took advantage of seeing the only nearby ruin and it is indeed a ruin. You must use your imagination to fill in the blanks. The very old, faded and dilapidated signage needs to be replaced. Our young guide gave a creditable tour, though seemed... More

Although only ruins remain, the story of the attempt to create a cotton plantation by a British Loyalist is really interesting, and if you have a good guide there is much to be learned. We certainly enjoyed our tour. You need to take the small road after the new hospital on the Leeward Highway- there is a sign which is... More

It's hard to find yet instructional. An easy walking guided tour of the island's cotton plantation remains. Needs money to upgrade presentation and the gift shop.

Had a hard time finding it. Tour lady was very helpful and interesting. Admission fees goes toward upgrading facility. Looks like they are doing the best they can to preserve a bit of history.

The Cheshire hall tour was a splendid tour. It was an excellent look into the early history of the island. While the ruins arent much it does give an idea to what life on an early19 th century plantation was like. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and very passionate and patriotic about the Turks and Caicos. I think that... More

Seeing the other reviews, I suppose the visit MIGHT be worth $10 if you have the guide - however, given I arrived just after 4 pm, site closed at 4:30 and guide was gone, I had hoped for SOME rebate. I did pay the full fare for my 20 minute walk through and am glad I checked it off my... More

The Cheshire Hall offers a glimpse of history to those who see more than "just another Caribbean island" in Provo. It's run by the National Trust and they certainly make a good job of maintaining the former cotton plantation. The fee is 10$ and since it was low season we had the guide for ourselves. He walked us past the... More

This isn't Disneyland (tm) and it's difficult to ind and under staffed. But.... Anybody who is at all interested in how things were if going to find a lot of interest. A place for the imagination and for unaccompanied wandering round.

Great, private tour for $10. Nice guide and very local crafts/craftspeople working at small shack/office. Gives you some sense of regional cultural history
