Once you see the Queens Staircase, you'll be amazed of the hard work it took to create it. Be careful if you go in the morning, if there's dew on the steps, it could be slick.

Not an amazing sight or anything. Even the fort at the top is not very impressive. Its walkable from the cruise terminal so if you want to kill some time i guess.

Enjoyed the visit with Mario as our tour guide. He is informative in the history of the Queen's Staircase and willing to share his love of the history of the island!

Nice walk but not as impressive as I thought it might be. Quick walk from the downtown area so easily accessible.

It is amazing! When you look at it and realize it was all hand carved by slaves, it is mind boggling. Definitely a site worth exploring. The vendor at the bottom of the steps sells bottled water cheaply as well.
