Full description
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.

    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.
