1. Hiking Adventure Through Grand E'tang RainForest

Discover Grenada, the ‘Island of Spice,’ on this group hiking tour through Grand Etang National Park. Learn about the native flora and fauna of Grenada from your expert guide as you explore the lush rainforest on a moderate hike.  After pick-up from your Grenada hotel, admire the gorgeous island scenery as you make your way to Grand Etang National Park by comfortable coach. 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.

Saint George's: 4.5-Hour Agro-Tourism Hike

2. Saint George's: 4.5-Hour Agro-Tourism Hike

Begin your 4.5-hour excursion in Grenada with a city tour of St. George’s, the island’s capital. You’ll gain general historical knowledge and experience the city’s present-day charms and natural beauty. Visit the Port Louis marina, where the French first docked in 1650 and named the settlement Port Louis. In 1763 the British renamed the town St. George’s in honor of King George III. In St. George's city you’ll see historical forts that offer picturesque views of the entire capital, southern St. George’s, and the island’s main port. Take a walk through the local market, where you can choose from your favorite tropical fruits, spices, and vegetables as you’re greeted by the native vendors. Stop at the National Museum, and as you continue on you’ll see examples of the city’s Georgian architecture and fish-scale roofs. The Sendall Tunnel connects the city center with the picturesque Carenage area, where you can enjoy a waterfront walk, passing a range of local restaurants and bars, shopping booths, and outlets that demonstrate the creative skills of the native people. See the cargo ships and fishing boats of all sorts. Next, a 30-minute drive will take you to the island's interior to the rainforest, where the 7 Sisters Falls are located. Before starting your rainforest hike, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Grand Etang Lake, a crater lake in an extinct volcano, (admission USD 2.00), the souvenir shops, and the information and lookout center. On your 35-40 minute fun hike to the 7 Sisters Falls (admission USD 2.00), you’ll meet local farmers who will educate you about the different fruits, vegetables, crops, and spices grown on the cultivated farm lands. On the trails you’ll also experience the island's wildlife, including different types of birds and of course its famous Mona monkeys. This hike can become muddy, but after the trek you’re welcome to jump right into the cool, refreshing, and tantalizing pools at the first 2 of the 7 falls. This is your opportunity to experience agro-tourism in Grenada. The hike takes you through cultivated farmlands, where fruits, vegetables, farm animals, and spices are found in abundance.

Our pickup at the cruise terminal went smoothly. We had a great informative tour of the whole island and were only two of us with our friendly guide Devon. He is a good and level-headed driver. We hiked and saw the waterfalls on foot before the tourist flow of the cruise ships arrived there. The paths are slightly muddy there and it is physically demanding, but it can be done if you are reasonably fit. We got a lot of information about the flora and were able to experience the rainforest up close. We had a meeting with monkeys at the crater lake and had the opportunity to buy spices. There were also nice viewpoints for photo stops, and we felt we had enough time for everything. We also visited a rum distillery. We really enjoyed it and we can fully recommend this tour. You could see how proud our guide is in his country.

Enjoyable walk down to the waterfall and back up through the forest. A bit slippery in parts but the hiking stick really helps. I’m retired, so as a gauge in regard to accessibility and difficulty as long as you are reasonably fit, it’s fine. There are lovely people as guides and at the site. When you get there it’s a cold but refreshing swim in the pool below the falls. I loved it.

Great trip, a little different than described. First we hiked to the waterfalls with the guide. Then to a viewpoint overlooking a lake. Then to a rum and chocolate factory. Entrances to waterfall, viewpoint, rum factory were extra. But it was described in the description. Very nice guide, great trip were only 4 people.

Nice tour of the island with various destinations (small hike to the waterfall, spice and rum tour, visit to a small country-typical restaurant with good food, etc.)

great trip with just another couple, very nice guide, great local food - less hike than expected - more often 1 or 2 dollars requested tip than expected
