“Best Way the see the island”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Arrived in Grenada on the Emerald Princess...arranged with Allan of AJ Medford tours for the West Coast tour of the isalnd.. There were 6 of us in our group ( 3 couples)...We found out there would be 3 other couples joining us...They were a little late getting off the ship so we had to wait. Lucky of us one of there member couldn't make it---or the Van which can hold 15 people would have really been packed....Myself and another couple ended up in the back seat---not very comfortable...and we really couldn't hear most of the dialog Allan was giving of the island....The late couple all sat in the closer seats....If I were to visit Grenada again--I would make sure the tour was limited to 6 people----15 in that van was way to crowded. Allan was a very knowledge and good guide the parts we heard...The stops we made were at the old Douglaston Spice processing plant---Allan's knowledge of the spices was excellent--we watched other tours come in ( some from the ship) and the tour guides didn't know much.... The other stop we made was at the Gouyave Nutmeg Station----( extra fee for this) Should have been included in price . The price Allan quoted us was $140 for 4 persons..$ 25 additional...I think the tour was over priced based on all the people in the van.

“Best day in Carribean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We have ordered this tour through this e-mail as an opposite to overpriced and too short trips for Grenada offered by Royal Caribbean. We have received almost immediate confirmation of reservation, with details about tour, meeting place and time, and availability of car seats for our kids. Upon arrival to the port we found Allen was already waiting for us right there he supposed to be. He introduced us to our driver, Luther, and escorted us to our tour van. To our surprise, we were only one family for the whole air conditioned, comphy and very clean modern van. So, just after about 10 minutes from the ship we were already starting our tour of Grenada.
Saying this tour was wonderful will not reflect it. Luther is a talented guide - just imagine big tall guy with voice of Paul Robeson and knowlege of Wikipedia! Just a few minutes of the tour we had to ask what University he graduaded - appears he is a local college graduate, who travelled to USA for a few years, but returned home to raise a family and drive a local bus. We were amaised by his passion for history of his motherland and culture, his knowlege about all plants of this spice island and medical use of these mother nature gifts. And he is an excellent driver as well - we felt safe all 6 or 7 hours of that tour.
We have rounded the whole island during our day tour. We have visited farm, where cocoa beans processed to chocolate, rum distillery with oldest watermill in Americas (and according to my hubby, best rum!), saw waterfals, old cuban airport with soviet times aircrafts, leap place and many historical places. In the middle of the tour, Luther offered to stop by a restaurant, which would serve buffet type of food to tourists with menu similar to the ship's one. But we were on Grenada, the spice island, we wanted to try local food! We have asked Luther to choose a place where he would have lunch. As a result, we have stopped in the small town by the sea and had a wonderful carry-like chicken in local type of pita bread, local beer for my husband and Luther, and a fruit juce for me and kids from some exotic local fruit. The whole lunch for 4 of us plus Luther cost us about 50 caribbean dollars (20 US ones), but would beat any restaurant by taste and flavour of the island! [By the way, "tourist place" restaurant usually provides tour driver with free lunch, so, if somebody would try to follow our way, please pay for your driver!]
We have not swimmed in the waterfalls and had no time for the beach. At first, we were upset that we had whole day driving around and did not even touch the warm caribbean waters by our toes in our first port... However, even after cruise stopped in 4 more ports, we still remember Grenada as one where we had the best time!
Thanks Allen and Luther!

“Tour Of Grenada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We booked the full day tour with Allen and had a good time. He is very nice and knowledgeable about his country. The reasons i did not rate this tour with 5 stars are... 1- Its not disclosed that lunch is extra (we enjoyed the food and service but for $25 PP and an 1.5 hours of the day lost, we would have skipped). 2- Drinks were not provided in the van. 3- We spent alot of time driving and would have like to see the falls that were listed as part of our tour we booked. All in all, it was an enjoyable day just would have like to see and do more.

I do recommend Allen with AJ Meddy Tours.

“Great Tour of the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Along with two other couples we took a half-day western island tour with AJ Meddy Tours and Taxi and it was wonderful. We had booked several excursions to the six islands we visited directly through Celebrity cruise line and they were disappointing. But the tour we booked on our own with Allan was outstanding; a lot of fun and he really gave us the local flavor of the island. I would definitely recommend touring with AJ Meddy if you are visiting the beautiful island of Grenada.

Just came back from a tour with Allan. He was extremely knowledgable and gave us a great half day tour of the island. Would recommend him highly and we will tour with him again.
