A brilliant walk capturing the best of the views, flora and fauna of the Island`s interior. Wonderful guide and host.....We started heading up Mount Qua Qua, then before the summit took a "barely there" track towards lower Concord Falls - little trail but immense fun! We got to swim in Upper Concord Falls in spectacular isolation. Definitely not for the unfit or easily worried (expect to fall and get wet and muddy) but our group of 4 enjoyed it massively. Not a walk to do without a guide - don`t look for the route on the maps - it isn`t there.... Vaughan was great fun and at the same time made us feel safe - he has a wonderful office!

Thank Louise C

Vaughan is a vacation adventure artist. He painted and sculpted our day-long Grenada in a Nut(meg) Shell more than guided it. With self-deprecating humor and expansive passion for his island, culture, and people, he drew us into a simultaneously relaxing and whirlwind journey through the heart of the island to the north and west coasts as we visited the advertised stops. Learning about our unique interests and our curiosities about what we saw and heard, he quickly would adjust some detail of our trip to accommodate our interest. We truly ended the day feeling like we had found the full worth of our trip to Grenada in this one adventure, and requested that he adopt us. OK, maybe not, but we felt almost like family by the time he dropped us off.

Just spent today travelling round Grenada. As it was a Sunday the rum distillery and nutmeg processing plant were not open. The chocolate factory was very good, the waterfall was lovely and the National Park was beautiful. Vaughn was a very knowledgeable guide and made the day enjoyable. 10/10 would definitely recommend!!

Our daughter and son booked Vaughan as a gift for us for when we were holidaying in Grenada. Vaughan collected us from our hotel Coyaba and from the first moment we met he made us feel very comfortable and was so informative about everything and the surroundings. He tailored our trip out based on what our daughter felt we would enjoy. Sadly the weather on the day was not brilliant which meant that Vaughan had to change it slightly so we couldn't do our trek in the forest As it was raining but it was still very enjoyable, he showed us many things including picking cocoa beans, going to the waterfall, the nutmeg factory and more, the tour finished with a late lunch at a restaurant used by the locals which was lovely. Thanks Vaughan, a great day. You deserve your stars!

We found this tour courtesy of reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. We did the ‘Grenada in a Nutmeg’ tour with Vaughan. We confirmed by e-mail before we arrived and he met us as arranged at our hotel. We spent the day touring the island, crater, waterfalls, rum, chocolate and nutmeg factories. Vaughan was fantastic and tailored the tour to what we wanted, spending more or less time in places. He was very knowledgable and great fun. Tour was a good price as well compared to that offered by our hotel. We’d all highly recommend but book early as he’s very popular.
