The tour guide would only complete the guided tour if we paid a tip half way so we did not get to see everything underground.

This fort was constructed during British rule. There are a few signs detailing the life of the soldiers & the construction of the fort. It was a nice place to cool off a bit during the day and it is a great lookout point because you can see for miles at the top of the fort.

This fort was the first that Jermaine from Jermaine's Taxi and Tours took us to. The guide at the fort was knowledgeable and gave a good tour. The rest of the volunteers and staff were also friendly and helpful. We saw the "firing" of the cannon as a part of the experience. Views from the fort are wonderful as well!!

We like to visit historic sites when on vacation and this was very interesting. The guide was very good. Also, others were dressed in clothing and accessories of that time period. It is a great view from here.

My boyfriend was really excited about visiting the forts. We booked it as a excursion on our cruise along with the pirate museum. It got cancelled due to lack of participation so we decided to go on our own. It was only 1$ to tour and there was also a tour guide. The tour guide was nice, she however got... More
