“Take a break from the crowded neach and take this tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Took this tour back in Sept 13 with my boyfriend and we loved it. I knew if I came back doing this tour again was a must. Ended up taking tour again this past Friday January 17th. Our group consisted of 8 people. We were on cruise celebrating my dad's 70th birthday. Day of tour was dad's birthday and he had a great day on Grand Turk. My dad as well as the rest of my family loved the tour. Tour is informative. Island is small and you get a good glimpse of entire island during tour. Tour last 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Tour guide is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. The water on this island is amazing. Looks like a picture out of a magazine. Be sure to bring a camera.When tour ends you still have a few hours to lay out by beach or at the pool back near cruise port. Looking forward to coming back to Grand Turk!

“Island Trams Tour of Grand Turk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We arrived on the Ruby Princess on January/16/2014 to the Grand Turk. We took the Island Trams Tour of the Grand Turk you learn everything about the island from two brothers that operate the tour. You visit Cockburn Town this is a favorite place for Cracked [ Delicious Deep Fried ] Conch. Grand Turk lighthouse at the northern tip of the island. You'll see wild horse and donkey's left over from salt days. You stop at the airport a see replica of John Glenn Space Capsule in 1962 he splashed down just two miles off the coast of Grand Turk.This was a educational experience. Note: When you get off the ship go to the White Sands Resort it is just short walk from the ship.

“informative and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Before our cruise we read a lot about ISLAND TRAMS so we tried this tour. We are all glad we did. The five of us, learned a lot about the island. We also had a lot of fun while on the tour. Both the tour guides (brothers) made the experience very enjoyable and quite entertaining. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to the Grand Turks. The mother of the two tour guides is a very sweet and funny women as well! Thank you!

“A great way to see the island ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

When we stopped at this port during our 5 day cruise we weren't expecting much from Grand Turk. However, after our hour and a half long salt tram tour we came away feeling much more informed and pleased with this little Island. The tour was short enough to allow us to do another activity while in the island but long enough for us to see a lot.

Pre-booking communication was excellent and the tour was very easy to find. Overall, we thought it was great value for the money we paid.

“Stood up”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Disappointed that no one was on the beach to honor our reservation with Island Tram on Dec 20, 2013. Had security look all over for representatives but no one was to be found. An email to alert us of any emergencies would have been appreciated. We always like to support local vendors . I would suggest waiting until you arrive and then look at all your options. Luckily their payment option was down when we made the reservation so we weren't out any money, but they said they were reserving a place for us on the tram. Had been looking forward to seeing the rest of the Island.

We apologize for not meeting your, our expectations for our tour, scheduled on December 20th 2013. Our tram was not in service that day, due to unexpected mechanical issues. Thankfully, we have resolved those issues, would like to offer you free passes on you next visit to Grand Turk. I sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay on Grand Turk, would like to do whatever we can to make up for our misgivings.
