Tour Details

Art, Culture & Beach

Depart the pier area and take a scenic drive to a local art gallery where artisans practice their crafts.

Enjoy a welcome beverage and snacks and meet a local painter and observe her painting some of her favorite island scenes. Take part in her painting class and have a souvenir of this special day to take home. You will be entertained with stories of Antigua and her past through music and poetry reading spoken in the local dialect.

Local vendors will have their handiwork on display and for sale. You can find arts and crafts, sea island cotton and local clay pottery and some of these items will be produced right before your very eyes.

Take in the beautiful surroundings of the two old sugar mill ruins on the estate as you make your way to the beach. This secluded spot offers swimming for anyone who would like to take a refreshing dip.

At the arranged time, your transportation will return you to the pier area and your ship.

The tour was very scenic and bus clean and comfortable. The guide was knowledgeable, and the stops were varied and enjoyable. We loved the art lesson at the beach. The tour lasted a bit longer than anticipated, which is common with tours. I didn't mind as I was having a good time the entire trip. The food and drinks were well prepared.

Ms. Jackie was an excellent tour guide and a lot of fun. The visit to the McMillan house was very interesting and filled with history. The grounds were beautiful. The beach was a perfect end to the day and my mom and I made some very professional looking paintings. Ms. Jackie is talented beyond measure and a great person. I highly recommend this tour.
