We arrived at Montserrat airport after a 15 minute flight from Antigua. We talked to a cab driver at the airport and got a price. At the beginning of the trip, $100 US seemed steep, but after our tour, we realized that the beating the car took, the price of gas, the miles we drove and what we saw for the price was more than fair. We drove from 9 in the morning until 3:30 in the afternoon. I am sure we were on every paved road that was not in the restricted zone as well as a few that were unpaved. We drove up hills so steep that I know my own car would not have done the job.
Our driver was Thomas "Fumbo" Lee, an older man and a good safe driver. He was born on Montserrat and had lived there all his life. He really knew the history of the island and had pictures to show us prior to the 1995 eruption. We found him to be friendly and informative. I would certainly recommend him to anyone. He made our day trip well worth it.
I would like to give his phone, but TripAdvisor rules say I can't, but you can find the information on google or by emailing me.
