The guide is persistent, and... More

The botanical gardens is situated in Kingstown and offers a lovely addition I the form of an aviary which is home to a breeding programme... More

It was a nice tour with an informative tour guide. We are from the carribean and we have alot of the plants at home but our guide was able to share additional details. It takes about 45 mins and it's about 5 minutes from town.

This is arguably one of my faviourite attractions! This is my second visit and not my last! The gardens are teeming with exotic trees and plants and boasts being the oldest botanical gardens in the southern hemisphere. It is 5 e/c dollars to enter and you can pay 10 e/c dollars per person for a tour guide. This is money... More

After a stroll around the markets (Saturday) we took a taxi ($5) to the Botanical Gardens, its quite a steep uphill walk otherwise. $4 entry and extra for a guide. Although moderate in size the gardens are particularly well kept in all respects.

Whether you are interested in gardens or not, this is well worth the visit. Our guide was called Antony and he made the tour fascinating - explaining the history and heritage behind the gardens. A beautiful spot and lively to see the.native parrots as well.
