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.

4 StarsEssential tour to experience IslandMay 09, 2019

Reviewer: Steve Lyczak
While quite small, Grand Turk does have some interesting characteristics that can only be experienced on a comprehensive tour. This tour reveals all the hidden gems of the island and is a great alternative to just sitting on the beach.

Reviewer: ANGELA CHRISTINE TREMINO
We enjoyed the tour although we were the only couple who showed up for this tour, the lady that escorted us tried to make it pleasent. she took us to the downtown area to shop for some suveniers and then drove us all around the little island to see different things, she was also nice enough to drop us off at another excursion we purchased and then picked us up and took us back to the boat so we wouldnt have to pay cab fare.

Reviewer: Preethi Moraes
I personally didn't find this excursion being value for money. However we had a very nice tour guide who explained us everything about Grand Turks. Grand Turks being so small there wasn't much to see for the price we paid. But Grand Turks in general is very beautiful.
