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.

Reviewer: Marina King
Even though the island is small, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the area in a comfortable van. The guide and driver and her young son helped us learn about the history and culture of their hometown.
