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.

Enjoyed a leisurely Saturday morning stroll along Main St. etc. The guide was prompt, affable, knowledgeable and provided bottled water. The 2 hour promenade highlighted many unique architectural, historical and cultural landmarks along with a fascinating visit to the Walter Roth Museum of Anthropology - to view indigenous artifacts. In addition, the guide infused a few personal 'family' accounts to enliven her intercultural narratives. The final destination was Stabroek Market, ascending a steep and very high narrow winding staircase to the lookout. This was the only deterrent, as circular climbs cause me imbalance. It would be prudent for the tour company to insert a cautionary note about this part of the trip. All in all ~ a very well organized and pleasant promenade through 'downtown' Georgetown.

I found the offer by a good luck having met someone by chance who worked for this special and unique walking tour company.
More of a 'Stop and Stare' stroll than a formal walk!
I had a great time on this excellently planned tour, just long enough, and it actually made me look at the unique buildings and wide streets with newly opened eyes.
The guide, a well educated, polite and animated good looking young woman delivered constant interest and many surprises.
The local constable who accompanied us walking a respectful few paces behind, stopped the traffic when we crossed streets and gave us a good feeling of total safety and personal comfort.
The town is actually more interesting than you might think and included visiting a small museum en route . Much of it is below sea level protected by a continuous sea wall that the Dutch built so long ago.
I guess I can only recommend you take this 2 hour walking tour..... It's one not to miss..... in my opinion.

My husband and I visited Georgetown on business and pleasure. With each new city we try to always book a walking tour as we find this the best way to get to know a city from locals. So, we were happy to find the recently launched Provotique Walking Tours in Georgetown. Our walk was led by the company's founders, Ruqayyah and Candy. The tour was informative and so much fun. The pace was good and these ladies kept us laughing and made us feel at home. It was everything a good walking tour should be. An added benefit is that the local police provide an officer to join the group and ensure safety. If you are visiting Georgetown, you should not miss this delightful walking tour!

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.

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.

My guide was Ruqayyah, who exuded enthusiasm and energy. The tour was flexible to accommodate interests of the clients. For example, I expressed interest in local types of bananas so we stopped at a stand in the market to tastes couple of varieties. If going Saturday I think it is best to go in the morning since nice the Anthropological museum is closed Saturday afternoon. The museum was quite worthwhile. We did not have a police escort but, frankly, I didn’t think it necessary.

This enjoyable tour provided an outstanding view of so many remarkable buildings, and of Georgetown generally. My brilliant tour guide, Doranie Camacho was bright and enthusiastic and demonstrated both a love and education of the city, the history and the magnificent buildings. I truly enjoyed this, and will be encouraging anyone I know visiting Georgetown to do this tour, once they are up to the walk.

Provotique staff was greatly warmly and really nice. They accommodated my need and chage the departure of the tour for me and showed me around even if I was the only one willing to take a tour. As a nice close-up, Candasy -the great tour guide and entrepreneur CEO women of Provotique- made come up to the Tour clock possible. She also offered me a delicious watermelon tasting at the end. Nothing but good words for this entrepreneur’s women and great tourism company.
