Jewels of Dominica

Excellent Shore Excursion
February 26, 2023
The snorkel on the champagne reef was outstanding as was the Ti Tou Gorge. Trafalgar Falls was specular. We traveled in a small van and the group was small. The tour guide was great. If I go back to Dominica, I will take this shore excursion again.

Fantastic Excursion
February 14, 2023
Went on this excursion 2/12/23. Best excursion ever. Our driver, Alvin, was personable and informative. At Champagne Beach our snorkeling instructor, Jefferson (aka Stingray), took good care of us. Our guide at Titou Gorge, Ollie (?), helped us through the VERY cold water to and from the fantastic waterfall. The Gorge is an exhilarating experience to say the least. The final segment of the excursion, Trafalgar Falls, was beautiful. Everything about this 5 hour excursion was well worth time. Highly recommended.

Excellent personalized excursion

Alvin was our guide and he was excellent. With a small group, we were able to explore the main highlights of Dominica while receiving excellent commentary and historical facts. It was a beautiful excursion, better and cheaper than what the cruise line had to offer. Well worth it. I recommend strongly.

Even though it was raining at the beginning this tour was great. We went cave exploring, saw the falls and talked with our guide/driver & person in charge of the snorkeling portion while 2 went snorkeling. Even with the rain, we had a great time!

The excursion started out raining. The first stop was the snorkeling portion which the Canadian couple did while we talked with our guide and owner of the establishment--it also quit raining. the driver/guide gave info about the area. After getting on lifejackets, we went into water & thru the cave where we reached the falls. On the way to the last stop, we stopped along the roadside to see what a local had created. Great day!!

This was one of the best excursions that my wife and I have been on. The tour guide and driver were very nice and knowledgeable. We got to see quite a lot of the island and learned about the local culture. I would definitely recommend this.

This wasn't our first time to Dominica or to the Southern Caribbean, but this excursion is our favorite. This excursion includes fantastic snorkeling, breathtaking views of Roseau, a journey into the rainforest, an indescribable refreshing swim through a garden of Eden slot canyon, the adventure of passing behind a waterfall, and visiting twin waterfalls. Great sites, adventure, and fun, with a wonderful knowledgeable tour guide (Ailien) that joins you, in your unforgettable adventure. Don't miss this!

Dominica is beautiful, it reminded me of Maui the waterfalls and the beautiful green landscape. Swimming in the bubbles was a treat. I hope to go again

Ailain made the trip great
March 30, 2019
We took this excursion because it offered a smaller group and had the sights we were interested in seeing. Indeed, the island is beautiful, the excursion had only 6 people but most importantly, the guide, Ailain, was outstanding! He has a great knowledge of the island, is full of energy, was extremely helpful with negotiating the physical parts of the tour and when asked, really shared about himself personally. This made the tour special!

FABULOUS Tour Guide!!
March 23, 2019
Our group of four just took this tour on March 19, 2019. Our tour guide Ailien went above and beyond to make sure that each one of us had the best experience possible. He personally swam with us while we snorkeled and pointed out things for us to see. He made swimming in the cave so much fun! As we drove to each destination he gave us not just information but personal insight into his home and community. I highly recommend both this tour and especially this guide.

Snorkeling, Island Tour and Waterfalls!
February 07, 2019
What a wonderful tour of Dominica with “Big Mama”!! The snorkeling was great, our guide pointed out many fish, water was clear and beautiful. Big Mama was knowledgeable about his island and obviously very proud of Dominica. The waterfall stops were gorgeous! Complimentary beer and water which was a nice touch. A lovely day exploring all that Dominica has to offer, we would highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic shore excursion
January 07, 2019
Jewels of Dominica, was our favorite shore excursion of our Southern Caribbean cruise. The falls, the gorge, the reef, are all must see items. They were made even better by our tour guide Alaine. He was knowledgeable, positive, kind, grateful, and proud of his island and people. He did everything with us. Snorkeling, jumping in the gorge, etc. It was a day we'll spent, and worth every penny, a great value.

This was a fantastic tour. Alain, our guide, was both a a fantastic source of knowledge on the island, and passionate about his home. His pride for Domenica made us feel right at home. Touring with Alain was both fun and a learning experience for all, and the genuine hospitality was a true bonus. The stops on the tour were fantastic. Ti Tou Gorge was spectacular, and not to be missed. We enjoyed the other stops as well, including the snorkeling on the reef. Loads of fish and things to see.

Fabulous Tour
February 28, 2017
Our tour guide went over and above to make this a wonderful excursion. The waterfalls were beautiful, the gardens were lovely as well as the overlooks. We even got to take an extra side trip that was not on our itinerary. The snorkeling at champagne beach was well worth the trip to. So much was packed into this excursion. We definitely got our money's worth! We learned a lot about the culture as well from Alyn our tour guide.

A lot of driving, but I should have expected that since we visited so many different areas of the island. Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable and we learned so much from the tour. The best part for me was Campaign Reef....we will definitely be going back there!!!! Swimming in the gorge was just awesome. Very good tour and would highly recommend!

This tour was more than we expexted. Our guide, Alaine, was personable and well informed about the island. As we traveled to the different locations, he shared information about the history, geography and culture of Dominica. The tour included an incredible variety of stops offering unique swimming and snorkeling opportunities as well as beautiful views. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone and the level of activity can be easily adapted.
