Discovered there really isn't much to Tortola beyond the natural beauty, the beach, and the water sports. Granted, most people probably go there for the beach and water sports, but we were hoping to see a little of the people and culture. Unfortunately the tour guide's entire spiel consisted of pointing out the various shops, gas stations, and schools along... More

Tortola is brilliantly located if you want to see the other islands of the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and the Atlantic ocean from an open top - I suppose I can call it a bus but it is more like an open utility vehicle which takes about 30 people. It has a top to it but open sides and... More

A passenger had a heart attack on the NCL Gem. The captain set sail for Bermuda to meet the coast guard. After a dramatic rescue by helicopter. We were back on our way but we did not have enough time to make port at anguilla. He detoured to Tortola, we did not have an excursion planned. I read about this... More

We didn't have a tour booked when our our cruise for the Port of Tortola and for 20 dollars per person you can check out all of the sights in the area in an open air taxi. The tour is within a short walking distance of the port. The tour guide was very informative in explaining all about the culture.... More

Just rented a jeep for an 8 day stay on Tortola. The Jeep was waiting for us at the airport. It was a super pleasure to drive. We returned the jeep to the airport at the end of the week & one of their staff went out of his way to help us navigate the gates so that we could... More

Fairly new tourist attraction at the Caribbean. We tour around the island and its beautiful. They've got fantastic view once you reach the highest point. The people are very friendly especially the school kids on their uniform waving at us everytime we pass by. Driving along the shore and feeling the cool breeze of the ocean was exhilarating.

We did the highlights tour. The island is so beautiful. The tour is well recommended, stopping for views and pictures. The tour also highlighted about the culture which was very interesting. Out of all the Islands I visited Tortola was my favourite.

We went here via a cruise ship. We did this tour and we loved it (we wish there would of been more stopping to take pictures ) but it really showed us around the island by land then they put us on a boat and we got to see St John's and sorrounding islands.
