I decided to take both walking tours - Main Street and Botanical Gardens - in one sunny Sunday. Great experience. Learnt about the buildings, architecture, history of the country and discussed many of the current issues. Very pleasant and informative - a chance to slowly take it all in, ask questions, take pictures. My tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable, bright and engaging! I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to get to know the city.

We were bored in the lovely Marriott Hotel Georgetown and saw advert for Provotique tour. What a delight to meet and be greeted by the Lady Boss herself..... the exquisite Ruqayyah a former beauty queen and musician ..... and one of Guyana 's nicest and most hospitable persons. The tour took place in late afternoon when the sun's strength was declining and the breeze was cooling. We were part of a small group of 12 persons but everyone was welcomed as though they were special to Ruqayyah who even sang to us under the leafy Main Street trees. She showed us such treasures of Guyanese history hidden in the tree lined wide streets. Things we would never have found or even looked for ourselves. When it was over the group even stayed fascinated and moved to a nearby bar and coffee shop to chat and exchange addresses and experiences. Ruqayyah even invited us to a concert she was giving that weekend. My wife and I were so pleased we had booked this little delight. It made our visit to Marriott Georgetown very special and complete.

Ruqayyah Boyer gave me one of the most amazing and informative tours. Not only was she knowledgeable, she was entertaining, easy to speak with and did not get upset with my thousand questions. I also like their level of professionalism and ability to communicate clearly. Take the tour and you will be impressed and pleased. Kuma

This tour is off the shelf, really inspiring and rich in History. If you're up for the walk please dont miss the parliament building tour by Yaniq really something to look forward to. I give this tour a big thumbs up. There is a quote ( The proof of the pudding is in the eating). Until you try this tour you"ll never know. Big Up Ruqayyah, you go girl. From Oral and James.

I enjoyed a lovely tour of Georgetown with Provotique Tours. We ended up spending more time than necessary at the Red House learning about the estimable Cheddi Jagan, and had to abbreviate the end of the tour, but our guide was informative and enthusiastic about all things Guyanese, making the tour enjoyable and informative.
