We took the tour of the buried city of Plymouth with Scriber's Tours. Scriber arrived with a driver, Peter and a expert on the area, Steady. (We learned everyone on the island has a nickname.) Once the paper work at the police station was completed, we were off on the tour. It is strange to go from lush tropical jungle... More

We participated in a "Buried City" tour that was an excursion from our cruise ship (Windstar). Only organized, government approved tours are permitted. Don't expect excavated ruins as in Pompeii. However, still an incredible view of the devastation to the town of Plymouth brought about by the volcanic eruption of 1995. There are several buildings standing that one can walk... More

There are many beautiful rain forest trails all over the Soufriere hills. There is an excellent look out to see the Volcano. If you like to walk through lush valleys with much flora and fauna, spectacular vistas, these hills are just the thing. You can explore on your own or hire a guide. There are several available, and all are... More

Touring with Sun's Montserrat Island Tours, we paid a fee and were police escorted onto the ash, dirt and rock buried city of Plymouth. A must do! You will probably never see anything like it again!

Just like the title says, the volcano is a huge draw and the people keep you coming. It is both sad and fascinating to see the vast amounts of damage that was inflicted on the region and to see the sheer size of the volcano that is still steaming. We took a tour into Plymouth to see the destruction. The... More

Doing this tour and riding the helicopter is such a memorable experience! Love the history and the beauty of Montserrat. It is simply majestic, undescribable, must do!

Such and impressive place. Hard to believe that such beauty could be so fierce. Island holds true to the name "Emerald Isle".

We arrived on Montserrat in late afternoon and wanted to see the volcano before the the area closed for the night. We were guided to Spadico Taxi. Spadico was a remarkable guide and gave us great detail about the volcanic eruption and its impact on the island. Even more remarkable was the speed with which he answered our call and... More
