St. George Grenada: Western Route Private Day Excursion

5. St. George Grenada: Western Route Private Day Excursion

Leaving St George's behind we drive past the stadium on our right and up the scenic west coast, rich in history and colour. Concord Waterfall is our first stop, a 1.2 miles drive up a leafy lane beside a stream, dotted with Grenadian agriculture: nutmeg, bananas, cocoa, and many other plants of interest. Next stop is the nutmeg "pool" in Gouyave. You are shown the seasoning, processing and sorting of nutmegs and mace. Nutmeg products vary from syrup to massage oil, garden mulch to nail varnish; even a pain-relieving spray. We continue northward to a magnificent view of Grenada's Grenadine islands, and of the place where the last fighting Caribs committed suicide in 1651, overwhelmed by the prospect of French rule. We next take you to River Antoine Rum Distillery: the place is as antique (1785) as the rum is strong (75% alcohol - ouch). It can be hard to believe that the place is a working distillery, not an elderly museum. Despite its antiquity, it is quite well thought-out, and has environmentally-friendly aspects. By now, you're ready for lunch. Our usual venue is Belmont Estate. This is a delightful rural setting, good, varied local food from a buffet; and a cocoa bean fermentary on site. We look forward to the food ourselves. In the afternoon, we continue through La Poterie and Tivoli, then through Pearls Airport, disused since the Americans 'intervened' in 1983. Today, sheep graze under the remains of two old Soviet-built planes. After driving through Grenville, Grenada's second biggest town, we set off to the middle of the Island, to the mountainous rain forest, where we stop at Grand Etang crater lake. Then we head back to St. George.

St George's: Gouayve Fish Friday Festival with Transport

9. St George's: Gouayve Fish Friday Festival with Transport

Your Fish Friday experience begins when you are picked up at the hotel by a minivan for a drive to Gouyave. Arrive in Gouyave, which is about 12 miles (20 km) north of St George’s on Grenada’s west coast. The fishing hub of Gouyave began its weekly Fish Friday tradition to promote community development and to keep a bit of its annual June 29th Fisherman’s Birthday celebration going all year long. Roam the town on your own and soak up the lively atmosphere—often called “the town that never sleeps,” Gouyave throws a good party. Wander up and down the streets that are closed to traffic, checking out the many stalls selling heaps of freshly caught seasonal seafood, from lobster, conch, and shrimp to barbecued snapper, codfish cakes, and jerked marlin. While you eat, listen to live music, mingle with locals and, most importantly, have a good time. Beverages like fresh juice and beer are also available for purchase (all food and drinks are at your own expense). When it’s time to leave, return to the van for the drive back to your hotel. A guide is present at the festival if you need assistance or information, but this is mainly an independent activity.

Tony is an outstanding and professional guide who had a natural way of communicating his passion and love of his native island. He was hugely informative and knowledgeable and flexible, giving us a tremendous insight of the island. Tony has a warm amusing and enthusiastic personality and manner with a very interesting life history. We would thoroughly recommend Tony and our only regret is that we should have had booked him for the whole day. Mark and Philippa

Ronnie was very friendly, knowledgeable and interesting, there was nothing he didn't know about the island, Fantastic van, very comfortable, top class service all round, 6 stars!

The specified time was exceeded in consultation with the participants. This made it possible to stay closer to the individual places and there was no hectic activity anywhere.

This was probably one of best tours that I ever went on! Ronnie went above and beyond! We enjoyed every minute! He's knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile.

We had a private tour that we were able to customize. Our guide was very accommodating.
