Start your open-sided tram sightseeing tour of Grand Turk at the tram station near the cruise terminal at the Southern end of the island. From there, the tram takes you and your family or friends, along with a knowledgable guide, all the way to the island's northern tip and back in about 3 hours. Feeling the sun and the tropical breeze on your skin is a pleasant way to tour the island while learning about its history.
Cannons, windmills, churches, inns and other historical attractions keep your guide busy pointing out the local sights. Pass many wild horses and donkeys, the Space Capsule, and Governor's Beach on your way to Cockburn Town, where you'll stop to sample some local foods and have a cool drink (not included in tour price). Disembark in historic Cockburn Town and visit some of the local shops and restaurants.
Back on the tram, pass Her Majesty's Prison and the National Building, both historical relics with interesting colonial architecture. On your way to the Grand Turk Lighthouse at the very northern end of the island, pass Crabtree Park and North Creek. Get a history lesson in Grand Turk's once-booming salt industry as you pass the natural salt ponds, known as 'salinas'. Dating back to the 1600s, these salt ponds were once the lifeblood of the islands, and are now home to flamingos and other tropical birds. After getting your fill of local sights and history, your tour ends back at the tram station.
Had a great time with Jesus we seen so much for a low price he was very knowledgeable and friendly would definitely do it again
Excellent family run tour. They also own a Guesthouse in town. We drove 2-3 hours through the entire island which is only 7 miles by 1.5 miles. Very informative. Bring your questions, they have answers. The tram pickup is on the OUTSIDE of the Carnival Port. You have to exit via the parking lot!
Excellent tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Totally enjoyed it, but I do wish we had more than 20 minutes in town to visit the vendors to shop and/or eat. By the time we got off the tram and used the restroom, it was time to leave. Also, we had NO clue where to go when we disembarked from the ship. No signs pointing us to where to catch the tram, which was located outside the main parking area and up a narrow, 2-lane road with no dedicated sidewalk area. Thank god there were plenty of vendors who could direct us or we would never have found it. It was a lot of walking to get to/from the tram, but manageable for those who are used to walking. However, I would not recommend for someone with mobility problems or the elderly.
This tour showed us most of the island. It was great! One thing that we did not realize when booking this tour was that we would have to walk a pretty good way to get on the tram. This was fine for us but the couple we were with had trouble walking so far.
Great tour - guide very knowledgable
When Carnival arrived at the port we were informed that the Ship would leave at 1 PM instead of 2 PM. The tour I had booked had a return to the ship at 1:30 PM. I got off the ship earlier and was able to get on the 9:30 AM tour that was almost full of Chinese. They were able to accommodate several of us and the tour was excellent and informative. We sat close to the driver who spoke English and the translator spoke to the Chinese. The Island is very small but beautiful. Lots of donkeys. I highly recommend this tour.
As a Travel Agent, I experience quite a few tours but have never experienced a tour as GREAT as this one. Narration began as soon as Tracy started up the Tram. We all learned so much about the Island and his personality shone through for the whole trip. I will highly recommend this tour to my clients over any that Carnival Cruise Line offers. There is absolutely NO comparison. I was happy when we also met the Owner and her son and they guaranteed we were going to enjoy this to the ultimate, and we did. Reserve this tour through Viator - no doubt - THE BEST!!!
Island Tram is great. You not only get to see the island and hear the history, but get to stop for shopping and touring the lighthouse. This is my second time using this company myself and as a travel agent, recommend it to my clients. Doug, Raymond, Tina and the crew are very warm and friendly and do everything they can to make your visit a good experience.
Grand Turk was our favorite! Relaxing. The beach and Margaritiville is right off the pier from the ship. The tour was very educational and interesting. The island is small, 7 miles long. My son was visited by several donkeys as he was eating chips! The tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour if you want to know more about this beautiful island named Grand Turk.
Good value. Guide was excellent. We saw the entire island. Made 2 stops during the 2 hour tour.
Tram was comfortable and water was supplied. We did have long walk from ship to tram which is located outside terminal.
