Such and impressive place. Hard to believe that such beauty could be so fierce. Island holds true to the name "Emerald Isle".

We arrived on Montserrat in late afternoon and wanted to see the volcano before the the area closed for the night. We were guided to Spadico Taxi. Spadico was a remarkable guide and gave us great detail about the volcanic eruption and its impact on the island. Even more remarkable was the speed with which he answered our call and... More

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with the island and volcano tour. This probably a combination of too high an expectation and the fact that I didn't enjoy spending 4 hours in a taxi on such a nice day. The volcano is spectacular, but can only be seen (at least on our tour) from quite a... More

We were traveling on a Windstar cruise and was offered a tour of the Buried City. The driver and guide were excellent. You must make sure they are registered to get into the Buried City. These guys lived through the eruption and are telling you about it during the tour. To see with Hugo and the volcano did was amazing.

John Daly of Scriber's Adventures took us as close as we could legally get to the volcano and the decimated town of Plymouth. What we saw is a modern day Pompeii. A stunning and very sad view of what has become of this once great city.
