A very enjoyable trip. I was picked up on time from the pier. I was the only person I the tour ! They did not cancel.
Was a lot of history and useful info. On Cayman island. I would highly recommend the tour
excellent! Guide was very informative, showed us unplanned sights along the way, and gave us historical background of cayman islands. Also provided insight as to the contributions of private investors in Cayman infrastructure,
The tour lived up to our expectation. We saved money by not booking similar tour through the cruise ship. The guide adjusted the tour for the rum cake stop to avoid a large crowd from other tour groups. The only problem was that the tour guide did not come to the cruise ship terminal with an identifying sign. The guide was just looking around for people who had booked the tour. A guide from another tour company had told me to look for a person in a yellow shirt. I spotted the guide as he was working back to his bus.
Excellent tour, the guide took extra time to answer everyone's questions and stopped to permit photos as other tour busses cruised past us. The turtles are a must see and learn about. The guide assisted each person with holding the turtles and took pictures so all family members were in a single photo.
Everything was great. The driver took the time to give us more time at stops and was very informative. Well worth, the time and money.
Though they ran a bit late showing up and making us question whether the tour was on or not, when they finally did show up, the excursion was superb! Our guide was very informative and gave us a lot of good laughs, making the tour very enjoyable and worthwhile! Having been to GCayman before, we opted to try something different (the Turtle Farm) and we were very happy with the choice. If you are a first timer to GCayman, we would still suggest going to Stingray City/snorkeling, above all excursions! But if you can't do that one, this is a recommended one, by us!
Great Guide; he even took grat photos. At the turyle farm could even hold the turtles for photos.
I recently went to Grand Cayman as part of a cruise. I would like to say that this tour was the best of the tours we did during the cruise. The bus came to pick us up and was very much on time. The tour itself was extremely informative and we were able to see so much, it was worth every dime. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to the island.
Omar was a great tour guide. He walked us through the Turtle Farm and gave us a little history and information. Other people starting walking with us and used our tour guide to answer their questions. My family really enjoyed the West Bay Sightseeing Tour.
This was the trip of the a lifetime!!! The tour consisted of my family and another couple, therefore we didn't feel rushed. We could ask as many questions as we wanted. Leonardo was very knowledgeable and made our tour run. For this reason we are glad that we booked our shore excursion independently.
The driver showed up 15 minutes late, but since there were only 4 of us on this tour, the lost time was okay. The driver was knowledgeable and did a good job of telling the story of the island and places visited.
The sight- seeing was brilliant. Our experience with pick up was pathetic though.
Great experience - just wish we had more time there! Hope to return some day. Great guide.
Our tour guide, Andrew, was very personable and knowledgeable. The turtle farm was the highlight, but we all enjoyed the other stops and found the experience worthwhile
This was a fast but interesting tour. Our guide arrived late due to van trouble but we were the only 2 people on the tour so we got lots of personal attention! Loved the sea turtles.
I enjoyed our tour very much. Our driver was friendly and knowledgeable. He was not rushed and answered questions confidently. I really enjoyed the tour of the turtle farm.
It was hard to find the location for connecting with the tour. We did contact the driver, who was trying to contact some other customers who had reserved the tour. Eventually we started the tour about 1-1/2 hours later than planned in company with another party who had actually booked a different tour. The sights were enjoyable when we got there, and it did work into our shore time from the cruise ship.
Turtle farm was best part of the tour, very interesting and informative.
im hafen mit der NCL angekommen wusste keiner von unserer buchung,der busfahrer an den wir uns wandten, lehnte uns zuerst ab, dass wir nicht auf seiner liste stehen. wir warteten mit einem anderen ehepaar in der prallen sonne im hafen von grand caymann von 9 bis 9:25, bis uns dann der erste buss mit dem gleichen fahrer nach langen diskussionen mitgenommen hatte. die sehenswürdigkeiten wurden im schnelldurchlauf abgefahren, da 5 minuten, dort 10 minuten aufenthalt und wieder ins bus rein und weiter....damit der bus die nächsten gäste vom kreuzfahrtterminal um 14:30 abholen konnte, die grade neu ankamen. das heißt tour wurde um ca. 45 minuten gekürzt, die höhe war, dass wir , ohne zu wissen, wie der hafen in grand cayman aussieht und welche entfernungen zurückzulegen sind, eine inseltour mit aufpreis für extra zeit zum shopping gebucht hatten und dachten man holt uns dann wieder ab und bringt zum schiff. der fahrer hat uns alleine, nachdem andere ausgestiegen waren, auf umwegen in die shopping mall gebracht( er ist ca. 5 minuten länger gefahren als es auf dem direkten weg wäre) und ausgesetzt und uns gezeigt, wie wir zum schiff kommen. das wars. Unser Schiffsterminal war um die Ecke und in 5 minuten fußweg zu erreichen, was bedeutet, wir hätten auch die normale tour buchen können, ohne diese 8 $ aufpreiszahlen zu müssen....das was auf der tour zu sehen war braucht man nicht zu erwähnen, man kann auch im hafen ein paar postkarten mit the hell und turtles kaufen;-) und lieber in die geschäfte mit uhren und schmuck reingehen, denn die preise sind tatsächlich nirgends besser!
good tours need more information, but organization is poor and time short for 35-40 minuts
When ashore had to find tour bus which took half hour, then, we were the only persons on bus. Road around alone for half hour seeing and hearing about the "downtown" sites. Afterwards, waited 20" until others customers arrived. Our guide was great, knowledgeable and friendly. He bought the tickets and guided us at the Turtle Farm. We felt that he had to improvise for us as most if not all others went to Dolphin attraction. The stop at Hell and the Rum Factory was crowded with people and was a waste of time.
