This was hands down, an amazing adventure and our favorite day of our vacation. Communication leading up to our excursion was perfect and prompt. Meeting up with Vaughan when we got off our ship was very easy. Vaughan is an excellent tour guide. Very kind, informative, and he showed us such a wonderful time. We chose to Hike Mount Qua Qua. We do a lot of hiking in NY and Maine and we couldn't think of a better way to spend our time in Grenada. The views were beautiful. The trail was quiet and definitely off the beaten path. And Vaughan made our day really special. Don't hesitate to book with this tour company. They have a wide range of tours and we will definitely book with them again on our next trip to Grenada.

We were picked up promptly by our guide Vaughan, he asked which birds we wanted to spot on our 6 hour tour. When he found out my pair of binoculars had an issue he let me borrow a pair of his. We spotted the majority of endemics in Grenada, including the rare Grenada dove. He was very personable and shared stories and many details

I highly recommend Tropical Adventures while on Grenada. It is a reputable, professional tour company with expert, trained guides! All tours will be private, yes, that means just you, not with a large group of people. This makes it so personable, more enjoyable, and able to ask questions, learn and talk easily. To be picked up at our cottage was such a nice touch. Top notch service! Vaughan was our guide for a full day of birding and every minute was enjoyable. He is such a nice man and so knowledgeable on many things, including having a keen eye for birding and spotted so many we would have never seen on our own. It was worth every cent to have Vaughan as our guide to make the most of our birding in Grenada which we added a few to our life list!! He shared how to distinguish birds in flight, where to look for them and took us to many different places and was looking for what we wanted to see most. He was incredible! We had a fabulous lunch at Belmont Estates, the service was superb and the food delicious. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks Vaughan!! Besides the Full Day Birding tour, I also went on 2 other tours, these 2 were with Mikey as our guide, the Grenada in a Nut(meg) Shell Tour which was awesome! Saw so many interesting parts of the island and understood how things are done, from growing cocoa, harvesting, processing and eating their tasty chocolate. Sampling rum was good and to see the oldest waterwheel at River Antoine Distillery was really a highlight. Nutmeg processing plant a great tour. Just the scenery while driving is unbelievable-so beautiful! Mikey told us so much about the island. We learned a lot and had a great experience. Mikey even went out of his way to take us to a hardware store so we could purchase a needed item. A very nice guy. We also went on Shoreline Trail hike around Grand Etang crater lake with Mikey. It was so pretty. He pointed out many things, birds, trees, and explained lots to us. We saw mona monkeys as well. I liked seeing them in the trees, as they are wild animals. But was very sad to see people call them down from trees, sit on tourists' shoulders and feed them. That is not respecting their space and life. Tropical Adventures does not encourage this and I was very pleased about that. I consider both Vaughan and Mikey as friends. It made our vacation in Grenada and all its adventures more memorable because we had these two amazing people as tour guides. Thank you Vaughan and Mikey!

This tour covers so many things that really shouldn't be missed on Grenada! The River Antoine Rum Distillery is amazing, as is the Nutmeg Processing plant, very interesting! Also the chocolate factory and all the information we got from our guide, Mikey, who was a pleasure to spend the day with! He knew the island history and also a good birder and nice guy! So glad we took this tour and especially happy we booked with Tropical Adventures-they are awesome! Special to be on a private tour rather than with groups of people. We were picked up at our cottage which made for a relaxing day right from the start. Our time and money was well spent with Tropical Adventures!

Vaughan is a top notch bird guide. Very knowledgable about the birds and wider subjects pertaining to Grenada. Saw a lot of great birds in a 4 hour slot and he is an excellent spotter with great descriptions to locate the bird. He was very sensitive to the needs of my wife who has good central but limited peripheral vision. Accordingly she saw nearly all the species we encountered. He is good company with a great sense of humour. We liked him so much that we asked him to take us on another trip combing sight seeing and birding. You will not be disappointed if you use his services.
