“Grenada spice tour”

Mandoo's Tour & Taxi Service
Ranked #10 of 46 Tours in St. George's
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We were a party of six and booked the tour on-line. We were met by Mandoo inside the Grenada cruise terminal building. Our tour started pretty much on time, given that he had to wait for some of the passengers; total of 18 people on the tour in a new 24 passenger air-conditioned tour bus. We found Mandoo to be very professional, friendly, efficient and passionate about Grenada. He is a far cry from your every-day tour bus driver. We not only saw the highlights of Grenada but also learned a lot about the history and politics of the island. The time he spent with our group at the spice farm was outstanding, making sure that everyone understood what was going on. I would encourage anyone visiting this lovely island to consider Mandoo as a tour guide. His spice tour is probably the best value for any money you spend on a tour. The monkey stop was great.

3 of us were promptly picked up at the cruise terminal by mandoo and had the best day ever!! Mandoo was professional, educational, compassionate, inspirational and informative. I shared many of his views and opinions of the world, the environment and society and felt that he could be the next leader of his country. EVERYONE needs to have a tour with Mandoo. He also educated us on his beautiful island and called for a mona monkey to come out of the rainforest to eat a banana off my head. We did the spice plantation route and I will be booking Mandoo again if i ever am lucky enough to return to Grenada.

Mandoo met us at the cruise terminal and took us us on a morning tour of the island. Mandoo had a comfortable vehicle and drove very well educating us about the island along the way. Mandoo is passionate in his beliefs regarding care of the environment, education of youth and supporting growth and betterment for the islanders.
He extended his tour and dropped us at Grand Anse Beach so we could have a snorkel trip in the afternoon. Thank you Mandoo.

We booked a full island tour with Mandoo prior to visiting Grenada and he did not disappoint. A great guy with extensive knowledge of the island and all the places and things of interest. We completed the northern island tour which is the most comprehensive and interesting. We saw and fed the wild Mona monkeys during the tour, which was our highlight. This however was only one of several intersting parts of the trip. I would thoroughly recommend booking with Mandoo and also the trip we done.

Having read some rather rude reviews regarding Mandoo, I have to disagree with them. He is a gentleman, is extremely passionate about his island and how it is treated by everyone. When I visit a different country I want to know how things are done and I want to know about the politics of the island. Mandoo answered all questions on all topics. We had an 8 hour island tour with him (including a delicious lunch) and saw the monkeys (but no monkey ladies???). We saw all the sights that he felt would interest us. He was an excellent guide.
The highlight of our trip was when he stopped his van and picked up a dozen little school kids and gave them all a ride home! They were lovely children and a delight to be with and they had no hesitation about sitting with us in the van and chattering away to us. He goes into the schools to educate the kids on how the island should be looked after and to encourage them to make a better life for themselves. They all knew him and were delighted to join in our ride up the hill.
We also went to FishFriday on the Friday evening with him. He was very informative about what it was about and we had a wonderful evening. He is an excellent driver and we felt very safe in his hands on dark roads at night when everyone was on the streets in party mood and having visited many of the local rum shops - he got us home safe and sound and without incident. He even stopped to check on a group of tourists who were broken down on the side of the road to make sure they were OK and able to continue their journey.
He couldn't take us back to the airport on our day of departure but arranged for a friend of his to take us so it was no problem.
I would highly recommend Mandoo if you want to find out about Grenada and want something more than just a holiday laying around on a beach.
