Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Nelson's Dockyard, St. John's, English Harbour Antigua

Nelson’s Dockyard is the largest of Antigua’s National Parks and is still used today as a working dockyard for numerous yachts and ships. The restored eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings of the Dockyard are presently home to shops, hotels and marina businesses. Outside the dockyard, historic forts dot the landscape of the park accessible by hiking trails which allow visitors to enjoy the park’s scenic and natural beauty. There is endless opportunity to capture the beauty of the parks. With many glorious boats in the dockyard, the beautiful harbour, the historic sites and the unforgettable views will leave you in awww.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Betty's Hope, Pares Village, St. John's Antigua

Betty’s Hope was a sugarcane plantation in Antigua. It was established in 1650, shortly after the island had become an English colony, and flourished as a successful agricultural industrial enterprise during the centuries of slavery. It was the first large-scale sugar plantation to operate in Antigua and belonged to the Codrington family from 1674 until 1944. Christopher Codrington, later Captain General of the Leeward Islands, acquired the property in 1674 and named it Betty’s Hope, after his daughter.
Betty's Hope is no longer operational as a plantation. However, the structures which consist of the twin windmills, the Cistern Complex have been restored in serviceable condition, the Great House (Buff or Estate House) in ruins, the Boiling House where sixteen copper hoppers which were used to boil cane juice to produce crystalline sugar, and the Still House, a distillery was used for manufacturing rum. A visitor center has been created by converting a former cotton house storeroom into a museum. This includes various aspects of the plantation's history and shows early estate plans, pictures and maps, artifacts and a model of the central site to giving an overview of the of "Betty's Hope". A interesting peak into Antigua’s history.



Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Devil's Bridge, Willikies Antigua

Devil's Bridge is a natural arch carved by the sea from soft and hard limestone ledges of the Antigua formation, a geological division of the flat north-eastern part of Antigua. A bridge was created when a soft part of the limestone eroded away by action of Atlantic breakers over countless centuries. During calm days, you can enjoy a walk on the rocks that form the bridge and on days when the water is shooting up, enjoy the sea sprays. Devil’s Bridge is quite an experience.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Long Bay, Long Bay, Saint Philip Parish, Antigua, Antigua and Barbuda

Long Bay on the east coast offers fine white sand and crystal blue waters, making it a great place for snorkeling or just relaxing in the sun. You'll find coral reefs in water so shallow that you can actually walk out to them. Along the beach are Long Bay Hotel and Pineapple Beach Resort.



Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Valley Church Beach, Jolly Harbour Antigua

Valley church beach is a popular destination for many. It has lovely water and good facilities. The beach has quite grainy sand, which is very soft.

It takes you back to a time that have made Antigua what it is today. It offers a fascinating insight into the Antiguan way of life and if you are looking for an introduction to Antigua, we strongly recommend visiting Dow’s Hill for a relaxed and informative start to your visit on the island.

Drive up to Shirley Heights and stroll around the old military fortifications. The buildings have been adapted to function as a restaurant and bar.

A visit to Shirley Heights is considered one of the must do events in Antigua.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Blockhouse, Antigua

High above English Harbour in Nelson’s Dockyard National Park sits the Blockhouse, a brick ruin. On a perch overlooking the southeastern coast of Antigua, the circa-1787 site encompasses an officer’s quarters and those of servants, as well as stables. An ammunition-storage space, a catchment and a cistern have been restored in recent years. A great piece of Antigua’s history.

A good tour in the difficult Covid times.
The good news was there wasn’t any queues or many people around.
The bad news was lots of attractions were closed.
Marvin our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
A good day out to get to know and understand Antigua

We booked this activity during our trip to Antigua last February and it was worth every penny. We spent the day with Sean who took us all over the island. When I booked this day trip, I had asked for someone who had great narrating skills because my husband is blind. Sean was more than up to the task. He has excellent knowledge of the island’s history and a great sense of humour. We had a wonderful time touring sights like Shirley Heights, Nelson Dockyard, Devil’s Bridge, and Betty’s Hope. We also stopped for a really tasty lunch of roti. Definitely try black pineapple if you are on the island (it’s yellow, not black, but sweeter and less acid than réguler pineapple). Thanks, Sean, for an unforgettable day.

While visiting in Dec. our party of 4 did the private VIP island tour and loved it. It was a great way to start our vacation on the island. Sean, our tour guide, was really great! He was fun, full of knowledge and really showed us an authentic version of the island. The transportation was very comfortable and we saw a great number of historic sights in a short amount of time. Would definitely recommend to any first timers on the island! Thanks again Sean!
