“Did not turn up”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Booked Chris months before our trip and looking forward to it as was my birthday. Unfortunately he did not turn up. However the hotel Flamboyant quickly found a replacement and all was well although I have no doubt Chris would have been better. He came up with excuses but probably just forgot to book us in. My advice would be just send email to remind him as probably worth using as reviews look good

“An Excellent Guide and Tour of Grenada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Chris Buckmire offers a very interesting tour of his island. He's extremely
knowledgeable and strives to make sure his clients get a well-rounded
understanding of the flora and geography of Grenada. We came in on a cruise
ship and he picked us up and returned us to the dock, all with plenty of time to
spare before the ship was scheduled to leave.
For us, one of the most interesting stops on his tour was the nutmeg processing
station. Actually, it's more like a factory, and you get a guided tour of this large
building where the nutmeg pods are cured and prepared for export. It's a very
colorful, interesting place.
Chris also makes sure that you see the most important sites on the island:
Concord Falls, Grand Etang National Rain Forest and some sulphur pools. He
stops often to give you up-close experiences with plants and herbs that are so
abundant on Grenada.

Chris is awesome. Such a great tour guide. Shows you all the sights, very personable and knowledgable. Always friendly and a big smile. The very best Grenada has to offer is found through Chris.

“The highlight of all of our island tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We met Chris on 1/24/2013 for a day of touring the island. We originally booked this day tour as a private tour but we let Chris know that if there were other people interested (max 2) we would love to have them join us, thus lowering our total cost.
Another couple joined us for the day and we had an absolutely fantastic trip. Chris was on time, exactly where he said he would be. He answered all of our many, many questions and seemed to know most of the islanders as we drove by them. They all yelled his name out! We did all the tour sites that everyone goes to and got to sample fruits right from the side of the road. Chris is very knowledeable about all the plants and about food in Grenada. We came back to the ship after a truly wonderful experience and decided that this was the highlight of the trip. Both because of Chris, but also because the Island is so incredibly beautiful and lush.

“Attention to Detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Husband and I took Chris' Spice island tour 1/23/13. Comfortable van with only 4 booked. Excellent day! Private feel and we asked Chris every conceivable question. Went to Concord Falls, Dougaldston Estate, Gouyave village nutmeg factory tour(which has way more that nutmeg), Grand Etang (both the lake and the lookout). Chris explained ALL the flowers and trees on his island. Chris is a gentleman and we would not hesitate to book with him again and we are very selective in recommending anyone. Reasonable rate. Take your own water/drinks.
