St. George Grenada: Western Route Private Day Excursion

8. 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.

I visited Grenada for the first time in November 2022. This tour was perfect since my trip was short and allowed me to see a good portion of the island. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, answering my many questions about Grenada's history. Since only my friend and I had booked the tour that day, we were able to customize our trip. Some of my favorite parts were our visit to Grand Etang Crater Lake, BBC Beach, and my oil down meal at a local restaurant.

This was a great way to see the highlights of Grenada without having the annoying group of tourists, basically a private tour without the huge cost. You pick what you most want to see. The guide took us to an authentic restaurant for a delicious meal at the end of the day. Great experience!

Our driver, Tony, was the best.! He's very knowledgeable and explained all the sights we went to see, where the best local eateries we're, the best beaches and much more. He kept us entertained the entire time with his British sense of humor. Can't recommend enough.

Ronnie was personable and knowledgeable. The day had too much time driving due to the slow winding roads in Granada, but with only 4 of us and Ronnie being willing to customize our visit, it was fun.

Great tour and best option to spend a day on Grenada. Bless!
