As we were on a cruise and we had another excursion earlier in the day, this was wonderful. The operator worked with our time schedule and we even had a some free time before reboarding our ship. The guide was wonderful, full of information. Got to see a lot in a very limited amount of time. Bus was comfortable.

It was so fun. We learned about the history of Grand Turk and saw historical buildings. We stopped at a town and got food and it was amazing. It was the best food I've ever tasted. All the locals are so nice and it was such an amazing experience to see the island. We went to a beach where we watched the sunset. I definitely want to go back to Grand Turk. I found it interesting that there were so many American buildings and Canadian buildings there.

Our family of 11 plus two friends engaged Papa J for a full day of land and water. Juline and her crew were excellent in the ease of making the plans and carrying out my wishes for our group. We hit the high spots on the island - not many, but interesting. Then we enjoyed the stingray adventure and snorkeling at the wall. We ranged from age 7 to age 70+ and all had a wonderful time. They were able to fit each of us with comfortable snorkeling gear and the boat crew was excellent in helping the younger ones when needed. The cost of the tour was much less than trips arranged on our ship considering the time and excellence of the tour. They also arranged lunch at a wonderful local café, Sunshine's. Local food well cooked plus a smiling chef. Our group tried new foods cooked the Caribbean style and loved them. They got us back to the ship on time to depart with not problems at all. Thanks!!

There was miscommunication between the ship time and the time the tour was supposed to leave. the guide showed up 1 hour after expected and told us about the discrepancy. if they knew that this was a problem, there should have been some notification or steps taken so that there would not be about 25 people waiting for an hour for them.
Once the tour was started, it went well and the island was small but beautiful. the tour guide got us close to some flamingos that was great and took us to the major sites of the island and showed us some neighborhoods that like us get a feeling of the island life.
There is not too much to see on the island but if you are taking a snorkeling or scuba adventure it would be great. The water was clear and sea life plentiful.
Overall the tour was good but the time issue was a detractor.

Thanks for sharing your experience and your highlights of the island. Please note, that we try to work with all groups to the best of our ability. There are times when we can be there very early to meet to group and wait for ALL parties and than other times when we have multiple tours and arrive to start according to the schedule. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I went on the tour and stingray adventure. I traveled alone and felt completely comfortable, safe, and always cared for. Their responses to emails was prompt and they even offered me a courtesy pick up and drop off since I was not on a cruise ship. Juline was my tour guide and she did a great job engaging people and showing us some local gems besides the standard historical stops. Troy was our captain for the stingray tour. I highly recommend Papa J for this! We had 3 guests and the captain aboard. Our experience was a lot more personal and intimate vs the huge boats that came after us. We got to hold, pet, and get pictures with the rays, besides snorkeling after to explore Gibbs Cay. Troy was very observant and we even got to see a sea turtle coming up for a breath of air. Highly recommend this local business. They are knowledgeable, professional, and welcoming!

My daughter and I had an amazing time on this island tour with the rest of the tour group and our driver, Juline Higgs. She explained so much about the history and answered so many questions that we all had about Grand Turk. There were so many Cheetoh loving wild donkeys as well as dogs and flamingoes! She let us get out of the van to take pictures, sightsee, and shop for our souvenirs. We really appreciated all of the knowledge she gave us of the island and how she was patient with us.

Great tour with Dwight to get a flavor of Grand Turk. He is very knowledgeable and funny. We had a small group so it felt very personal. Would recommend for cruise ships as you can squeeze a lot into a short time.

This was a nice tour. Be aware the museum, light house and other stops are extra.
Loved the lighthouse view.
