I saw this online before we arrived on Grand Turk. Went out of the terminal and saw the Train just outside the gates and asked when the tours deoarted. Was informed the time the train departed in early afternoon. Three of us went out at the appointed time and waited but no train arrived. After some time we went back... More

First,let's just say there is not much to Grand Turk to see. With that said, Tracey does a great job making it something special to the tour for $20-25 each. Find the yellow umbrellas on the beach. If you are not going to the beach feel safe on GT with this company. John Glenn, space capsule model, lighthouse,cold water, flamingos,... More

Island Trams is a great way to see Grand Turk! We had about 120 Parrotheads from the Phuncoast and Spacecoast areas of Florida who not only had a tour of the island but also a wonderful beach party with fantastic drinks and great food (conch fritters, conch salad and Lobster rolls). They even provided a special island band to play... More

We arrived in Grand Turk via cruise ship and since it was our first time there we wanted to see the Island. The excursions you book from the ship were very expensive so we thought we would just grab a cab or something. We spotted your rep on the beach waving a sign and announcing your tour. You couldn't beat... More

If you didn't book a tour of the island on your cruise ship, Island Trams will take you to the same places for a cheaper price. I wouldn't recommend using non-cruise ship vendors in many places, due to the risk of not getting back to the ship on time, but Grand Turk is 1.5 miles wide and 6 miles long,... More

Booking tours externally/away from the ship is always a concern to us given the fact that if something goes wrong, we are on the hook. Those concerns were alleviated leading up to our booking as all of our questions were answered in an informative and timely manner. We chose the Great Salt tour as it fit into our time schedule...
