My wife and I had visited Montserrat previously, but had not done the buried city (Plymouth) tour. It was just outstanding. Our guide Rose was very knowledgeable and friendly, and had lived in the hills above Plymouth when the volcano erupted in 1995. Her stories...More
I recommend taking a tour guide to see the volcano and hot pools. They are very knowledgeable and kind. After enjoy the amazing mud bath and relax. Staff here very nice and painted us with black clay! Such a great adventure and should not be...More
I was able to see a lot of the destroyed cities. I even went into some of the old buildings and it was like time stood still. I'm very happy I went. And also, the other side of Montserrat is beautiful!!!
Visiting the volcano area in Montserrat is a must! Remember, not everyone has access to this area and special permission must be gained to enter it. We were with Sun on a private tour and loved every minute of visiting the area and seeing what...More
The exclusion zone is a must if you are in Montserrat. A special permit is required to visit this area. Therefore you have to go on a tour with a company. It is amazing the devastation that that was caused by the volcano eruption. A...More
We took Sunny's tour, arranged through Gingerbread Hill Guest house, and it was fascinating. This volcano erupted off and on for 15 years, and totally destroyed the capital city of Montserrat (and a good part of the economy, which has never really recovered). You cannot...More
Remains a brooding, unique and captivating feature of this magical island. This is our 11th visit to the island and the fascination remains undimmed! This particular January has been unusually wet with limited views of the summit but plenty of steaming going on!
Very memorable, we are so glad we did it. Our driver Lawrence told us all about the volcano and how it devastated this area. He told us what the people had to do and how they survived the times. He was very professional. Would recommend...More
The only place to view and understand the Soufriere Hills Volcano. Its a fair drive to the observatory but well worth the effort. The staff are pleasant and courteous and full of information about the eruption. Do not miss the video of the eruption shown...More

Good Morning! We were supposed to leave for aruba this morning, but after arriving at the airport we discovered that our flight is delayed for at least 24 hours because of the eruption of this volcano. Apparently, we were told, the plane can not get into Aruba because of the volcanic ash. Can someone give us an update? What is going on there? Is everything ok?

Looks as if our flight is rescheduled for tomorrow morning. It seems to me that who we are flying with over reacted. All other airlines have not cancelled any of their flights..... oh well. Tomorrow we will start our vacation, and it iwill be great!!!!!
