My husband and I booked the Dominica...
My husband and I booked the Dominica Day Trip, which included the Indian River Rowboat Tour, Fort Shirley Ruins, and Purple Beach in November, 2016. Our guide, Michael Eugene, was terrific! It was raining heavily when the ship pulled into port. However, we were able to email Michael and ask if we could start the tour an hour later, as the weather was supposed to clear up. He was very accommodating and agreed to do so. A little after 10:00A, Michael was waiting for us at the pre-determined location. He personally drove us to the Indian River Rowboat Tour location. That was fun and exotic. We were unaware that parts of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed there, and we can see why it was such a good location. We then went to Fort Shirley, and enjoyed a private tour there. While the paths going from the fort to the outlying buildings were washed out, what we saw was fascinating. We are not sun worshippers, so asked if we could skip the Purple Beach part of the tour, to which Michael also agreed. We then enjoyed a picnic lunch provided by Michael. Michael has a wealth of knowledge about Dominica, which he graciously shared with us. We found Michael to be a good conversationalist and an excellent ambassador to his island. We would not hesitate to recommend him and this tour to others.
