St. George Grenada: Western Route Private Day Excursion

1. 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.

Hiking Adventure Through Grand E'tang RainForest

2. Hiking Adventure Through Grand E'tang RainForest

Discover Grenada, the ‘Island of Spice,’ on this group hiking tour through Grand Etang National Park.

Once you reach a small spice farm, hop off the bus and head out on St Margaret's Trail. Make your way through the lush tropical rainforest, while your guide highlights various spice plants, including nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Keep an eye out for native wildlife including mona monkeys, tree boas, the tropical mockingbird, frogs and more.  As you ascend higher through the rainforest, hear the soft sounds of rushing water before arriving at two gorgeous waterfalls. The water flows into clear pools, creating a perfect place for a swim. Take a dip in the refreshing water and relax on the nearby rocks before making your way back to the Grand Etang National Park Nature Center, where you'll enjoy a complimentary drink before being transported back to your hotel or cruise ship.

4. Grenada: Chocolate Tour with Lunch at Petite Anse

Discover Grenada, the Caribbean capital of chocolate. Meet your local guide at your hotel lobby in St. George's and start the adventure to discover the chocolate culture of the island. Grenada’s volcanic soil, warm sea air, and sunshine are perfect for growing cacao. The story of Grenadian chocolate goes back to 1714 when cocoa trees were first introduced. The industry grew to the point that, by the 1760s, Grenada was the largest producer and exporter of cocoa. Meet the local chocolatiers who run a small cocoa farm and factory. Learn about their farm and their philosophy. After that, continue the journey on an air-conditioned vehicle until the next stop, Petite Anse. Enjoy a tasty lunch of local authentic cuisine featuring fish, with a rich sauce suitable to satisfy the taste buds, while overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Your tour will start with a complimentary pick-up from your cruise ship parking lot. You'll then head to Annandale Waterfall to check out the natural beauty of the falls. Your next stop will be Fort Fredrick, a great opportunity to take photos of the beautiful harbor below. After the photo stop, you'll head to the beach, where you'll enjoy the shade of rustling palms, sip a cold beer or a rum punch drink at the beach’s bar and slip into the clear water to snorkel, kayak or swim. The beach time will be prearranged for 2-hours but can be extended for no extra charge. Ensure your timely return to the Port of St. George's after your trip.

Discover Grenada With Lunch at a Local Restaurant

6. Discover Grenada With Lunch at a Local Restaurant

After hoteland port pick-up by private vehicle, head to the first stop on your day tour of Grenada, Concord Waterfall. Located about 12.5 miles (20 km) north of St George’s on Grenada’s west coast, Concord is the first in a series of three waterfalls and the only one in the series that is accessible without hiking there.  When you arrive, cool off with a dip in the clear, chilly pool of water at the bottom of the falls, or just take time to enjoy the peaceful rainforest surroundings if you don’t want to get wet. Then hop back in your coach to drive through the fishing village of Gouyave, where you’ll visit the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station, one of the island’s largest sites for processing nutmeg, the spice for which Grenada, the Isle of Spice, is most famous.  Continue your day tour to the northern end of the island to visit Carib’s Leap, a 100-foot (30-meter) cliff in the coastal town of Sauteurs where the last of the native Caribs jumped to their deaths in 1651 to avoid surrender to the invading French. Then head to a local restaurant for lunch, allowing yourself to relax for about 45 minutes before the second half of your tour. After lunch, your next stop is the River Antoine Rum Distillery on Grenada’s northeast coast, in the parish of St Patrick. The oldest functioning water-powered distillery in the Caribbean, River Antoine opened in the late 1700s and continues to produce its strong rum, available only in Grenada, using the same old-fashioned methods. After a 15-minute distillery tour, enjoy a sample of the potent liquor.  Finally, head southwest, passing through the town of Grenville, to your last stop, Grand Etang Lake in Grand Etang National Park. Sitting pretty amid Grenada’s rainforest-filled interior, the crater lake is a beautiful spot to end your tour of a beautiful island. You have a few minutes here to take pictures and admire the lush vegetation surrounding the lake. Your day tour then ends with hotel and port drop off.

A really great day with Al, the perfect private tour!

We stayed on Grenada just for one day during a cruise. Pick-up worked perfectly, there was even an detailed e-mail with helpful information close before the day. Al was the best guide we can imagine and adapted the tour accordingly to our wishes. The beautiful island became even greater by Al's explanations and the great care he took of us. Excellent value for money!

Tony is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and extraordinary. I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking to tour or to around the island, reach out to his company. It was like reuniting with an old friend who just so happens to know everything about everything. Can't wait to reconnect on my next visit.
