“Great tours!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I took 2 tours while on the island. The first was the Canyon and Airport in the sky and the second trip, a city tour with a stop at the Botanical gardens. Both trips were memorable and allowed me to see more than I could have seen on my own. The Canyon tour includes a bumpy bus ride up/down some very narrow roads. The views are awesome!

We had an awesome time!! Highly recommend this adventure. Our guides Donald and Nick are CI natives and can answer any question you may have. Donald was a very big part of the original installation of the Zip Line. Wish were were staying on the Island longer as we would have done it again. We were only there for 8 hours. Well worth the time and money. If you get to go ask for Donald and Nick They are by far the best guides!!

“Skyline Drive”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Although we did not have super high expectations for this tour, our driver CINDY made it a very entertaining and memberable experience. She was full of information about the island and it's history, while keeping us laughing the entire time. Other reviews, gave the impression that they did not appreciate the comedy on their particular tour, but we thought Cindy made the trip worthwhile. Since we were limited on time and this tour was only 2 hrs long, it gave us a quick look at part of the island that we probably would have never seen. Cindy loves her job and she loves her bus. She was always very happy and courtious to all on the bus. Thanks again Cindy for a great bus tour!

“Excellent Interpretive Tour, Love the Buffalos!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I've been on tours with this group before and they are always wonderful - the bus tours are the best and the tour guides are very knowledgeable about the island, its history and very nice about stopping at intervals to let people take pictures. I highly recommend the tour whether it's your first or 100th visit to the island!
