Highly recommended tour!
Debbie_D, Jan 2022
Jolene — I’m guessing at the spelling — was an excellent tour guide and driver. She was right on time and very courteous. We saw as much of Grand Turk as possible, in a very short time. I’d highly recommend this tour, much less crowded and more comfortable than the excursions offered through the cruise line. Thanks! You made us want to visit your island again and spend more than a few hours next time!

the only nice thing about this island was the pretty blue water. The place was wrecked by two hurricanes . Not much to see.

Mama J was our tour guide and she was excellent. She and her husband seem like wonderful people who love their island. She gave us a wonderful tour of Grand Turk in an air conditioned van. There's not a ton of things to see as most of Grand Turk is ruins of things that used to be there like the salt flats and military bases, but Mama made all that interesting for us. There were a few stops which were great, like shopping in Cockburn Town and a quaint and very picturesque beach. I'm definitely glad I chose this tour for my family to learn more about Grand Turk, rather than just spending the entire time at another beach by our ship. Well done!

Papa J's Tours was excellent. We really enjoyed our tour of Grand Turk. Job, our guide, was a native of the island. He was very knowledgeable about the history as well as current events. We saw John Glenn's capsule, the salt flats, the governor's mansion, and the lighthouse. We would highly recommend this tour.

Papa J tours were excellent, our tour guide was the wife of the owner. A beautiful and informative guide. We enjoyed this tour around Grand Turk immensely. Would definately recommend this tour. You can sign up directly through Papa J Tours and save a little money. Always remember to check land time, because it was different then ship time. We almost missed our tour.

we were there on a Sunday which meant it was very quiet on the Island. The tour guide did a very nice job of explaining the history of the Island and the various sites. The Lighthouse is a bit of a disappointment.
