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.
first we were concerned the ship would not arrive on time and then the snorkel excursion lasted longer then planned. We were not able to go on the planned noon excursion but the people with viator worked with us and we were able to go at 1400 and still made it back to the ship in time.A very enjoyable experience.
Great way to see the island. Tour guide was a local businessman who was born and raised on the island. He provided great insights into the history of the island and it's current status. Well worth the time and money.
Tour was great! Shopping in downtown was great! Wish we had more time at the Lighthouse and wish the AC worked a bit better in trolley. Guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow! Loved this tour and was 14 dollars cheaper than Carnival's exact excursion!
We really enjoyed the tour and the guide was very good any one taking a cruise in their should take this tour
You have to walk outside the Carnival Gate to get there and wait for others but compared to the ship excursions this is the best deal.
This was a great way to learn about Grand Turk and get a look at everything. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable and had grown up there so kept us entertained with stories about his childhood and the island. This is a family owned business and they were great!
Very good trip. Would recommend the tour. Just wish we could have spent more time at the lighthouse.
I love the people of Grand Turk....they are oh so FRIENDLY!!!! We passed at least 4 sets of school kids as they wore uniforms and they all stood and wave and said hi to the guest on the bus visiting their island...that is hospitality and so were the native. The tour director was knowledgeable and nice however he had issues with his head set....the one downfall to the tour was that it did not start on time and we had a long wait we thought that we would not make it back to the ship on time then walked a few minutes to get the bus....but that is it.
Very nice tour for money! Tour director was very courteous and knowledgeable!

Very informative, not a very big Island, worth time and money
We had to wait a very long time and kept asking when we would go. Almost 40 min later, I showed frustration and the guide that took us to the tram got angry with me. The trip itself went well and the guide was very informative. They need to get their act together. VIATOR company will be used again. Price and honesty a plus
You can see below what they promise on this tour and you get to most things on the tour, it was a really good tour. My only criticism would be we never went for any tastings and missed Cockburn Town to shop. We were taken to the end of the island and offered to visit the lighthouse/church which we had to pay for admission 3.00 which we could trade inside for a water or a soda. That should have been included in the price of the tour. The tour was great and the island is one of my favorites.
Open-air tram tour of Grand Turk
Ride up and down the island to see historical landmarks like churches and old cannons
Stop in Cockburn Town to shop and enjoy local food tastings
See Governors Beach, Her Majestys Prison, the National Museum and the Grand Turk Lighthouse
Pass by salt ponds and learn about the islands salt industry
Watch for wildlife like horses, donkeys and flamingos
Guide was very informative and showed us a good time. The only downside was that the air didn't work too well in the tram. The entire team was very helpful with our wheelchair. We would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn more about Grand Turk.
