Here’s an opportunity to experience Grenada’s colorful culture and natural beauty. Spend a half-day visiting the island’s top sites. Begin your tour with a visit to St. George’s, the island’s capital, and see its historical landmarks. From Fort George, you’ll have 360-degree views of the city, the island’s mountainous interior, and of Grand Anse Beach to the south. Stop at the local market and marvel at the variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and spices. After visiting the capital, you’ll take a scenic 20-minute drive to Annandale Falls. This is the perfect opportunity to swim and watch the official jumpers. Enjoy a walk through the surrounding tropical gardens. Another major natural attraction is the Grand Etang Rainforest. Situated nearly 2,000 feet above the sea, the forest features native wildlife, numerous trails, and scenic lookouts that offer views of different parts of Grenada. Visit the crater lake, a natural volcanic feature of the island. You’ll find an information center, restaurant and bar, and shops here. There’s also entertainment on offer that’s provided by local musicians. After visiting the rainforest, you’ll continue on to Grenada Distillers, home of world-renowned Clarke’s Court products. This is the maker of the island’s top rum. After a 5-minute tour of the operation, you’ll get to sample many of the products (costs not included). You may be starting to get hungry by now. Just a 15-minute drive from the distillery is Morne Rouge Beach, which provides the ideal setting for a meal. Experience delicious island dishes accompanied by local juices and other drinks. Enjoy swimming, water sports, or just relaxing on the sandy beach.

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.

What people are saying about St. George's

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.

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.

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