There is no public transport in Road Town, either taxi or rent a four wheel drive. Local tour bus is called Safari and they are cater for the customers off the cruise ships at the cruise terminal when the ships come in, normally 7-8am and leave 4/5pm. It is helpful to get a cruise schedule if you want Safaris to... More

What a beautiful island, paradise for sure. We were lucky to have Karl as our driver/guide/educator. he was full of local information, made numerous stops for pictures and gave us a hour stop at a beautiful beach. These beautiful islands have a very interesting history, including pirates. Thank you karl.!

I was in Tortola a few weeks ago (stopped there on my Caribbean cruise) and did the island tour. It was marvelous! The sights were spectacular - I took many many pictures. Our guide on the bus was very good and told us all the interesting facts about the island and answered all of our questions. We got to stop... More

If your looking for quiet island experience to enjoy Tortola is it. The beaches are absolutely breath taking. Take a sail with Sail A day excursions and they with take you to private beaches that you will never believe exist. The food on the island is so daily fresh and delicious. I've been to the U.S. Virgin islands and they... More

Walking from the cruise ship we were attracted to Kitty's Taxi because it was so beautifully decorated. Kitty was an excellent guide and we had a very interesting trip around Tortola in an open sided beautifully decorated taxi!

On a HAL cruise, first island stop--Tortola. Per suggestions from TA postings, turned left at end of street to Taxi stands. These are not real taxis but mostly pick up trucks that have been modified with 3-5 benches in the bed of the truck. They pack you in like sardines, always 4 abreast with little leg room. These are $20pp... More

We took a Caribbean cruise in December and stopped at Road Town for a day. We had a rental car reservation with Hertz but because our cruise itinerary was changed while we were on-board, we visited Tortola on a different day and were unable to change our Hertz reservation ahead of time. Our reservation was at Wickman's Cay Marina at... More

Discovered there really isn't much to Tortola beyond the natural beauty, the beach, and the water sports. Granted, most people probably go there for the beach and water sports, but we were hoping to see a little of the people and culture. Unfortunately the tour guide's entire spiel consisted of pointing out the various shops, gas stations, and schools along... More

Tortola is brilliantly located if you want to see the other islands of the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and the Atlantic ocean from an open top - I suppose I can call it a bus but it is more like an open utility vehicle which takes about 30 people. It has a top to it but open sides and... More
