The start of this tour is located right on the beach, so you can hang out on a lounge chair or in the water while waiting for the tour to begin. The 2 brothers are friendly and knowledgeable about the island. I enjoyed learning about the salt industry and the animals on the island. It was fun seeing the wild horses and donkeys on the island. The highlight was going to the highest point of the island and seeing the view of the water. It is a great photo op!

My wife found this tour while strolling on the beach on Grand Turk. We just came from the Carnival Victory and all I wanted to do was lay on the beach. Well, I'm glad that she booked this tour. It was a lot cheaper than going through Carnival to tour the island. It's only an hour and a half and you get back with plenty of time to hang at the beach. The tour guides were brothers and they did a great job of showing us the island. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! If you happen to stop on the island of Grand Turk, definitely take this tour, it's worth it. Also, we bought 3 bags of island salt from them and I put them on some steaks, absolutely divine!! Thanks Island Trams, you made our stay that much better.

Thank you for the kind comments. We trust you both learned a little about our happy island home here on Grand Turk. You guys found us, I hope many more will! Just a few hundred steps up the beach, a world away. Glad you enjoyed the sea salt. It's great on everything.

I took the tour on June 10th with others from the Carnival Breeze. My wife and I intended to just relax on the beach, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to see the island and hear about its history...especially at such a great price! It turned out to be one of my most favorite and memorable excursions of the whole trip. The gentlemen that ran the tour were professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. By the end of the tour, I felt like Grand Turk was a special place, rather than just a port stop. My thanks to "the brothers" for bringing your island to life. I was especially interested in the history this island played in America's space program and cold war.
P.S. I tried some Campari with soda water and lime slice on the ship that night. Definitely an acquired taste, but very unique.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad that you found us, as we are an independent tour company, the only tour on the island to give back to the community through the National Trust. Our passion for our island home is always reflected in our tours, we are glad that you gained a memorable experience of Grand Turk. Hope to see you again very soon.
P.S. Campari is certainly an acquired taste, but it will grow on you after awhile!

We were on the Carnival Breeze in May and We found this tour while looking for golf karts. So glad we found them! Had a absolute blast! It's wheelchair accessible and they helped push me up the ramp since it was a little steep. One of the top tours we've been on yet. Much better then renting a kart and not knowing what you're driving past

Sisters and friend took this tour while on the Carnival Fantasy May 18th. The tour is GREAT! After 20+ cruises this is one of the BEST island tours we have ever had. The "brothers" are so knowledgeable and their love of their island shows throughout tour. By the time the tour ended we felt as if we were part of this "island family". We will be going back to Grand Turk in September on the Carnival Dream and will tour with the brothers again. Take the short walk down the beach and enjoy this beautiful island. Also, it was so refreshing to shop at the local market at Coburntown and not be attacked by the locals trying to sell their goods. All vendors were nice and friendly and NOT pushy at all. What a change from the other islands! The water rivals Grand Cayman! Beautiful! A MUST DO TOUR!

PS: Doug, hope you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Myrtle Beach.
