We had so much fun on this excursion! The staff were knowledgable, friendly and extremely helpful. The photo package from the stingray stop was great value and the shots were excellent. As a first timer at snorkelling, the staff were supportive and helpful. Great value for the cost!

We are enjoying our 1st visit to Grand Cayman so what better way to get your bearings, and a quick view of what there is around the island to see. Th staff was very accommodating, and went above and beyond. We had booked the tour just shortly after making the decision to visit Grand Cayman and wouldn't you know the... More

This is a 4-5 hour tour of Grand Cayman that is well worth the money. You first go on a bus ride to the boats that will take you out to Stingray city. You are there for 30 minutes. The guys on the boat make sure you get to experience all you can with the stingrays from holding them to... More

This was my first visit to Grand Cayman and our ship docked next to SIX others. This made for a very crowded and rushed day. Our excursion got off to a late start since it was so crowed and there had been a accident. Fortunately, we were informed and were able to do some light shopping near the port before... More

Shuttle picked us up at the Marriot where we stopped off to pay for the tour and sign waiver. Then off to the dock where we boarded a nice boat for a lovely 30 min ride to stingray city. Once there, we swam with and fed the stingrays - amazing experience! Then, stopped at two different corals to do some... More

This is a fun excursion. Lunch was outstanding. The only thing that didn't impress me was "Hell" It was a little boring to me.

We took the Cayman in a Nutshell tour based on the tripadvisor reviews. It was a good overview of the area and included the major tourist sites. We especially liked Stingray City and the snorkeling. The visit to Hell was nothing special and really just a tourist trap. The turtle farm was interesting and it was fun holding the turtles.... More

Great excursion. We had the van to ourselves, which made it a private tour. Lunch was outstanding. Would definitely do the same excursion if we'd ever again get the opportunity.

This was the best excursion I have ever taken and very reasonably priced. Others have written all the details with which I wholly agree. You will enjoy the whole experience!

This is an excellent tour and well worth your time and money. Ruth was great to deal with when setting up the tour via email. Could not have been easier.
