Excellent two hour trip around the island. You'll see local attractions, downtown Cockburn, and the lighhouse. Our guide and bus driver, Tracey, was knowledgeable, funny and we even picked up a term from him we've been saying ever since: "Small Tings". If you're on a cruise, I recommend booking this direct onshore as opposed to ordering on the ship. When... More

We were on a cruise on Holland America, and had cancelled our excursion to kayak, as it was very windy. We saw the owner of the tram company on the beach, and decided that we would take the tour. It was $4 cheaper than booking through the cruise line, but we had to pay cash. We were shown where to... More

Visited Grand Turk last week as a port on our Eurodam cruise. Saw a vendor on the beach offering the tour for $25 each and decided to take a chance. It was a great decision. Our driver was Raymond, who was raised on Grand Turk, and he kept up an interesting talk throughout the tour. Most importantly, unlike many tours,... More

My wife and I were traveling on the Carnival Conquest and did not book a shore excursion at Grand Turk. When we left the ship, my wife did some shopping at the end of the pier and then we walked over to the beach where we met an Island Trams Limited agent. The tour would cost $25 and take about...

Thanks for your great review! By now, cruise ship passengers should realize the cruise lines choose the lowest bid from local tour operators, squeeze them a bit more, then hyper-inflate the cost, to their benefit. We have chosen to remain independent, pass along the savings to you, our valued guests. Hope to see you again on your next visit to... More

We left the cruise port on this tram. We visited just about every important site that you could see on the island. One of the best parts was the old churches and the history behind them. Then we were met on the street by a fellow dressed in old prisoner clothes for a tour of the old prison. Also heard... More

We were at grand Turk on a cruise, and bought passes for this tour on the beach. We payed cash, $25/person.

Thanks for your great review! We are glad that you enjoyed your tour with Tracey. As an independent tour operator, our trams and trolleys depart from the cruise center main gate. The walk is actually the same length as the cruise pier, about 1600 feet. Look forward to seeing you all again on your next visit to Grand Turk. More

First,let's just say there is not much to Grand Turk to see. With that said, Tracey does a great job making it something special to the tour for $20-25 each. Find the yellow umbrellas on the beach. If you are not going to the beach feel safe on GT with this company. John Glenn, space capsule model, lighthouse,cold water, flamingos,... More
