We booked the Montserrat Volcano Tour with Caribbean Helicopters, but did so through Celebrity Cruise Excursions. It was more expensive this way, but we had ship credit that we were not going to use, so it ended up being less expensive that way. We met our tour guide right on the pier. She walked us outside of the security gates... More

Aside from relaxing and enjoying the beach from the ground we chose to do a tour of Montserrat. OH MY! What a treat. The pilot was a wealth of information regarding the islands of Antigua and Montserrat. We saw up close the destruction from the volcanic eruption on Montserrat and learned a lot about the island and surrounding islands. This... More

We visited Antigua for our second wedding anniversary with our seven year old! We booked this trip on the actual day of our anniversary and we was not disappointed. My husband and son had not been in a helicopter before and loved it! When we arrived, we were greeted very warmly by the staff. You watch a five minute safety... More

OMG this trip was amazing .... we arrived on time and was greeted by a member of staff who was very polite and friendly asked for our details and then took all our details and weighed us and explained what would be happening next. You then get taken into a briefing room and shown a DVD on safety etc and... More

We loved our helicopter tour of Monsterrat. The pilot / guide was excellent. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly at the heli pad I would classify this as a "must do"!

We arrived half hour early ahead of the 9.30 briefing, however our scheduled flight time of 10am did not happen. At 10.10 we were told the pilot had to turn around and swap helicopters as a light had come on, this took almost an hour! We accept that things happen and safety comes first but the disappointing thing is this... More

We booked the trip to Barbuda, all the details were effortlessly arranged by Karen. She met us at the heliport and went through the check in and safety procedures with minimum fuss but in a comprehensive way so that nothing was omitted. The trip itself was fantastic, the pilot Greg was full of information and a pleasure to spend the... More

I booked a full Island tour for 2 during my stay in Antigua. The staff were so engaging and helpful and made sure to inform us of all the safety requirements. It was our first time in the helicopter and it was exhilarating! Our pilot was super informative and FUN! He knew a lot of great fun details that made... More

We had 6 on the helicopter over Monserrat. First time riders and the trip was great. The Monserrat island was amazing. There was steam from fissures. Horrible devastation. Our pilot was full of great stories of the eruption and evacuation. He made us feel like we were there. Well worth the expense.

Since its eruption in 1995 the Soufriere hills volcano has slowly devoured this island. We did a helicopter tour last year and it was amazing to see this behemoth up close, smoking and spitting out ash 24 hours a day. I visited Montserrat before this all happened and it was quite sad to see its beauty destroyed. The tour via... More
