If your looking for quiet island experience to enjoy Tortola is it. The beaches are absolutely breath taking. Take a sail with Sail A day excursions and they with take you to private beaches that you will never believe exist. The food on the island is so daily fresh and delicious. I've been to the U.S. Virgin islands and they... More

Walking from the cruise ship we were attracted to Kitty's Taxi because it was so beautifully decorated. Kitty was an excellent guide and we had a very interesting trip around Tortola in an open sided beautifully decorated taxi!

On a HAL cruise, first island stop--Tortola. Per suggestions from TA postings, turned left at end of street to Taxi stands. These are not real taxis but mostly pick up trucks that have been modified with 3-5 benches in the bed of the truck. They pack you in like sardines, always 4 abreast with little leg room. These are $20pp... More

We took a Caribbean cruise in December and stopped at Road Town for a day. We had a rental car reservation with Hertz but because our cruise itinerary was changed while we were on-board, we visited Tortola on a different day and were unable to change our Hertz reservation ahead of time. Our reservation was at Wickman's Cay Marina at... More

Discovered there really isn't much to Tortola beyond the natural beauty, the beach, and the water sports. Granted, most people probably go there for the beach and water sports, but we were hoping to see a little of the people and culture. Unfortunately the tour guide's entire spiel consisted of pointing out the various shops, gas stations, and schools along... More

Tortola is brilliantly located if you want to see the other islands of the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and the Atlantic ocean from an open top - I suppose I can call it a bus but it is more like an open utility vehicle which takes about 30 people. It has a top to it but open sides and... More

A passenger had a heart attack on the NCL Gem. The captain set sail for Bermuda to meet the coast guard. After a dramatic rescue by helicopter. We were back on our way but we did not have enough time to make port at anguilla. He detoured to Tortola, we did not have an excursion planned. I read about this... More

We didn't have a tour booked when our our cruise for the Port of Tortola and for 20 dollars per person you can check out all of the sights in the area in an open air taxi. The tour is within a short walking distance of the port. The tour guide was very informative in explaining all about the culture.... More

Just rented a jeep for an 8 day stay on Tortola. The Jeep was waiting for us at the airport. It was a super pleasure to drive. We returned the jeep to the airport at the end of the week & one of their staff went out of his way to help us navigate the gates so that we could... More
