Exclusive Grand Turk Experience

Grand Turk Island is the administrative, historic, cultural and financial center of the island nation of Turks and Caicos. San Salvador Island or Samana Cay in the Bahamas is traditionally considered the site of Columbus' first landfall in 1492, but some believe that studies of Columbus' journals show that his descriptions of Guanahani much more closely fit Grand Turk.

This guided island drive tour will show you the highlights of Grand Turk Island. On this Grand Turk excursion, you will visit the island's top attractions, including the former United States Air Force Tracking Base and a replica of Astronaut John Glenn's Friendship 7 space capsule, which splashed down off the island's coast in 1962 following the United States' first successful manned orbit of the earth.

You will also see several 18th-century churches, beautiful Bermudan-style buildings, and salt ponds. In this peaceful town you may also see wild horses and donkeys freely roaming the streets.

There will be a brief photo stop to see a working lighthouse that has been in service for more than 150 years. Built in London in 1852 and shipped to Grand Turk, it was assembled in hopes of saving the salt trade. Standing sixty feet, it was designed by Alexander Gordon, who designed lighthouses throughout the British Empire.

You will also have an opportunity to visit "The Salt House", a recreated 17th-century saltpan that chronicles the history of the salt and slave industry.

We were picked up near our ship by a lovely lady who drove our van and was our tour guide. She explained a great deal about the salt trade and its history. Very interesting. The short stops were interesting and highlights were well explained. A visit to the Historic Lighthouse with the donkeys was a great stop. We were made aware of the beverages we were entitled to and appreciated that. A drive through the island was interesting as well as a stop to see the flamingos before returning to the port. A worthwhile tour.

Holland America ship docked and there was a short walk to meet the excursion. They took us all over the island and we could do a little shopping, and told us about the horses and donkeys having the run of the island,(very entertaining)
