My wife and I just got back from a Cruise that took us to Dominca for 1 day. We had been there before and had done a tour to the Titou Gorge and the Hot Springs and were looking for something else to do this time. So we signed up to go River Tubing. It was great fun - we got a very long ride on the river, the water was warm and a mixture of fast and slow moving sections. At the end the owner and his wife showed up with rum and freshly squeezed passion fruit juice. A great time at a great price. The key is to pre-book with them as it is 1/2 price from what the cruise ship will charge for the same experience. Afterwards we had them drop us off at Mero Beach (for just a few bucks extra) and we spent 2 hours walking this relatively long black sand beach (really soft sand) and swimming in the warm ocean. A highly recommend tour we liked much better than swimming in Titou Gorge and Hot Springs which we did the year before.

My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon on a 7-night Southern Caribbean cruise with stops in 5 islands. Honestly, Dominica was the island we were least excited about, but thanks to Antours, it quickly became our FAVORITE port we visited. Finding the Antours sign was very easy once we got off the ship, and we were greeted by Anison personally. Anison is one of the most kind and wonderful people we have ever met! We thought it was very neat that he gave us a ride in his personal vehicle. We loved speaking to him and our tour guide on the ride up and down the mountain to the trail, and learned so much about Dominican culture. We were lucky to visit on Dominica's Independence Day, so we were able to really see some of the culture in action! We chose to do a hike to Middleham Falls, and were able to swim in the waterfall once we arrived there. There were no other people there with us at the waterfall, which made it very special for just the two of us to swim by ourselves. Our tour guide was Antoine John - I cannot praise him enough. We could not have asked for a better hiking guide! He really knew a lot about the island and the rainforest, and we connected with him right away. We have been on many, many cruises and have done countless excursions, but Antours really stood out to us as an EXCELLENT experience. We hope to visit Dominica again in the future, and will certainly choose Antours for our future excursions.

We had some problems being met at the cruise port by the guide. The response from the company was good following the trip. We received a very good float trip, and the guide was knowledgable and personable.

We booked our tour...Emerald pool, river tubing and beach tour for 4 adults @$63.00 each in October. Unfortunately, a prior hurricane wiped out the road and the river was too low..so we couldn't do the tubing..however we had the greatest tour guide..his name was Joseph..when he came for us to go in his van we were at first thinking..oh no this is going to be boring...not at all! He took us all over the island, telling us history, cutting down mango's off the tree and cutting it up for us..we went to Emerald Pool and Trafalgar Falls...beautiful!! Then to a local flea market with Twin Falls right behind it, Mero beach, Botanical Garden with School bus crushed by fallen Baobab tree during 1960s hurricane, and an all day tour..it was less than what we were to pay because of the fact that the tubing was excluded.

We visited Dominica in January and March and used Antours both times for river tubing. We docked at 2 different places, and each time, it was easy to find our guide. There's a bit of a ride to the launch spot; our drivers gave us information about the island and sights while we drove. They provide helmets, as well as vests, and it's a good thing! On both trips, at least a couple of people flipped. In March, the river was a bit deeper and much faster. It's not a scary white water river, but there are definitely small rapids, and some very fast places.... This ain't your momma's lazy river! My husband and I are both in our 60s, and had no problems with this tour. Go for it!
