Just like the title says, the volcano is a huge draw and the people keep you coming. It is both sad and fascinating to see the vast amounts of damage that was inflicted on the region and to see the sheer size of the volcano that is still steaming. We took a tour into Plymouth to see the destruction. The... More

Doing this tour and riding the helicopter is such a memorable experience! Love the history and the beauty of Montserrat. It is simply majestic, undescribable, must do!

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 took a guided tour of the southern 1/3 of the island which was devastated by a pyroclastic eruption ( similar to Mt St. Helens in Washington State) which buried the capital city and airport during the cataclysmic events of 1997. It was explained that major eruptions have occurred every thirty years or so for the past 150 years. The... 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.
