“Awesome Day with Gil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

JoeTourist (i.e. Gil) is a funny guy that knows a tremendous amount about Grand Cayman and also about the region in general. His journalistic experience locally enabled us to ask many questions and learn a lot. Gil's tour was very fun. We did a custom tour with Snorkelling, saw many parts of the island and really enjoyed the authentic lunch including our first try at turtle (which was very good and didn't taste like chicken). I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to have fun and learn about your surroundings at the same time.

“fantastic trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Had a great time with our friends Terry & Pattie from Pa. Joe always does a great tour. Especially enjoyed the caves by the water. Will certainly plan another tour when we return to the island. Joe is very knowledgeable about the island & surroundings.

“Fun Way to See the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We met Gilbert (Joe Tourist) at our condo (Grand Caymanian) during the island attractions event. We spent the day with him later in the week. Met at hsi place sampled fresh Mango from the tree. Looked at local flowers and trees. then went out on the road. went snorkling at Bodden Beach. Say a good sized eagle ray in less than 6 feet of water. Had a snack at a local jerk food place and then went for a hike on the Nature Trail.

“best local trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

My wife and I along with our best friends spent the day with Gilbert of Joe tourist tours. Being a culture and history buff he was great, pointing out the little things that most people pass by on their way to the "attractions" that the ships reccomend. We were treated to a local perspective and snorkled in a local bay, learned about the British influence and history, The local floura and fauna. We got to learn the culture from a real local and hear his point of view without the whitewash you normally get from scripted tourism. The lunch we were served was a mix of local food, turtle, mahi mahi, conch and good sides like rice and beans with steamed vegetables. The setting was a really nice roadside cafe with flare. The ending was a sunset and cave exploration of a private beach. Only concern there was accessability was a bit challenging for less agile folks and getting wet is the only option. All in all a great day....would do it again.
