Concha Woncha Tours was the perfect choice for a 3-4 hour land excursion. Our hotel desk clerk called Desmond, the tour company owner and tour guide for us, put us on the phone, and we made our reservations by credit card. The next day, the air-conditioned trolley picked us up at our hotel, and away we went! Desmond's energy, enthusiasm and pride about his island home were evident, as well as his good humor and bubbly personality.
Rum punch was offered throughout the tour, which stopped at several points of interest. First, the Caicos Conch Farm, which had an informative tour, and where we purchased some beautiful conch shells to take home for family gifts.
Then, Desmond took us to the Turks and Caicos Cultural Center, where we listened to a very interesting presentation about the island's culture and music, and Desmond even got up to play the ripsaw with David, the presenter, on guitar. It was horribly hot in the room (that place could have used air-conditioning!) but it was still a rewarding visit. Next stop was Chalk Sound, a national park with water that is the most fantastic color of green-blue, it glows! Absolutely amazing. Finally, we went to Da Conch Shack, a local eatery right on the beach. The location was gorgeous, the epitome of a tropical haven on the beach. The food was great, as were the rum punches (all included in your tour price),
and then after lunch, there was a demonstration on the beach of how they removed the conch meat from the shells. I bought another gorgeous shell there, and off we went, back to our hotel. Honestly, I jokingly said, "Can't you just leave me here on the beach?"... Truly a great way to spend part of your day. To get to all those places ourselves would have involved renting a car, and a lot of stressful driving on the left, which we were not up for doing. I highly reccomend this tour, and Desmond is the greatest. He saw us walking in town the next day, and went out of his way to come over and say hello. Truly friendly and warm, like all the locals we dealt with in Providenciales. I know you will enjoy the tour, and meeting him!
