Begin your tour with a convenient pick up from your cruise pier in Romney-Pier Park and board a comfortable vehicle for a scenic drive along Wickham's Cay. Your drive will take you to Walter Francis Drive, where you'll catch views of a century-old prison along Main Street known as Her Majesty's Prison. This historic prison dates back to the late 1700s and is Road Town's oldest prison. The prison is nestled between the Road Town Method Church and St. George's Anglican Church and had come a long way since it's days as a prison when it stopped operating in 1995 to being a police station, fire department, passport office and the future location of a new museum.

Next, make your way to the Sunday Morning Well, the location where the Proclamation of Emancipation of 1834 was read aloud to inform the public that slavery was abolished. Travel through Old Plantation to Josiah's Bay, peak to catch sweeping views of the island, followed by a trek up north to Fahie Hill to take more breathtaking photos of Road Town. Next, head to the highest peak on the island at Sage Mountain to enjoy a 25-minute stop at Sage Mountain Bar and Restaurant as you sip on your complimentary drink. You'll also get to spend time at the historic Mount Healthy National Park, a national site that houses the remains of a stone windmill from the island's sugar plantation era.

Wrap up your tour by heading to Tortola's west coast and grab your camera to catch panoramic views of its sister islands. You'll get to catch breathtaking views of Norman Island and Dead Chest Island, an uninhabited national park that's a snorkeler's cove with places like Coral Gardens. You'll also get to catch breathtaking views of the palm tree lined coastline of Peter Island and the lush mountain landscapes of Salt Island and Cooper Island. Conclude your tour by reflecting on your relaxing time in Tortola as you return to your pier.

Tortola tour review
July 21, 2023
I highly recommend this tour. We got away from most other guests on the cruise and had a very personalized, very thorough tour of the island, got to learn about history and island culture from a native, who showed us ancient ruins and gave us multiple opportunities to take some great pictures of the beautiful landscape.

One of the finest tours we have been on throughout the Caribbean BVI and we even resided in the Caribbean.Excellent tour guide and safe driver. He shared all the Island culture with our group and he knew his island history very well including the surrounding ones also. from history to music! We made great stops for photo ops and rum distilleries and stores for shopping and breaks. You will be overly pleased with this tour. We love Roadtown and don’t forget to eat lunch at Pussers the Anagada Lobster is the very best along with your drink the Painkiller! Can’t wait to visit this gem of an island again!

Scary Ride (My Opinion)
July 06, 2023
I have to admit that this was not my favorite tour, but only because I am afraid of heights and the roads in Tortola are not wide and very winding......Jackson was very knowledgeable and took us to many interesting places, some with gorgeous views, but the fact that there are no barriers on the sides of the road made me close my eyes many times.....if this type of thing does not bother you, it was a great tour for the money!!!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. He was providing us with information the entire duration of the tour. The tour included a little bit of everything - from historic buildings, to beautiful views, to local rum tasting!
