Like everything else on the island, this tour was expensive!! We booked the Monserrat tour in advance on-line, which is $285 each with $10 off for booking on-line. The local tour gudes told us we should have booked with them and saved $20 (not sure if that's true). The office staff was polite to us but very rude to the local employee who got us checked in and weighed. I felt bad for him.
We received a thorough safety briefing before boarding the helicopter. We got in a 6 passenger helicopter, with one lucky one getting the front seat! The pilot seemed to engage more with the guy up front than with us, but his info was thorough and he gave us interesting facts about Montserrat. It was fascinating to see the island covered in ash and pyroclastic flow. Eventually, I lost my sense of concentration because of the sulphur smell from the volcano and the left-right banking of the helicopter as we circled the island. Take dramamine or bonine an hour in advance of your flight if you are prone to motion sickness. There are sodas and water for sale at the fort road location.
I would recommend this tour, but just be prepared!
