After pickup from your hotel, you'll travel to the other side of the island. Once here, there will be time to wander around and view the Admiral's Inn, Copper and Lumber Store, Sailmakers's Loft, Mystery Pillars and fabulous yachts moored to the old quay side.
Visit the Blockhouse Ruins, overlooking the mighty Atlantic Ocean, Indian Creek, and on a clear day the island of Montserrat. Afterwards take a short visit to Shirley Heights for a bird's eye view over Nelson's Dockyard and Galleon Beach before heading back to your hotel.

Antigua is one of the most gorgeous Caribbean islands we have toured over the years. Our tour guide for the day, Dale, was beyond accommodating. He indulged me in all my 'photo ops'!!!!! As he drove, he described in great detail where we were and what we were seeing. If you want a fantastic day seeing Antigua, Dale will be sure have it.
This was an excellent tour. I was the only person on the tour that day. My guide was punctual, friendly and very knowledgable and showed me all the main points of interest on the island, especially Nelsons Dockyard. As a cricket fan I was very pleased to be able to go inside the Sir Viv Richards Stadium. I strongly recommend this tour.
Customer service is outstanding, but the tour is mainly driving, not too much to look at in terms of island history. It might be not for everyone.
This tour was amazing. We saw some of the most beautiful areas in Antigua and we had such a knowledgeable guide. Dale was a great guide and if we ever come back to the island he will be our #1 request as a guide. We had VIP treatment the whole time and I would definitely do it again.
Tour wasn't horrible but our tour guide was more worried about us stepping off a cliff or falling into the ocean than anything. He was quite portly so everything involved staying right next to the car and making sure we didn't have some kind of accident.
Cyril was a fascinating and enthusiastic guide and we actually had a more-than-3-hour tour of Antigua. We managed to stay ahead of the cruise-ship crowds and overall we would definitely recommend this tour of an historic and beautiful island.
VERY INTERESTING TRIP
Michael's punctual arrival at our hotel with a warm and friendly greeting put us at instant ease. The tour began and we can honestly say it was full of information as well as seeing the most wonderful sights that we just would not have experienced had we not gone on this 4 hour delight. The A/C transport was an added bonus and very comfortable. I would highly recommend the round island tour.
We were picked up on time by our driver, Cyril, in a comfortable mini van. He was able to get us to all the sites around the island before the arrival of the busloads of cruise ship passengers arrived. Nelson's Dockyard and Shirley Heights are definitely worth the visit and we were able to get an individual guide on each since we were there before the buses. Cyril was very knowledgeable about the island and its history, and we toured the entire island. I would recommend is tour to others.
I was Dales only client. Lovely trip round the Island. Dale was a blast, very welcoming. Took me to all the interesting sights and was very knowledgeable.
Be ABSOLUTELY clear about where you're getting picked up we came in on a small cruise ship while two BIG ships moored at the same pier and St. Johns isn't well-equipped to take the crowd that poured into town. Taxi drivers and tour guides swarmed the area trying to get customers, including us.
Once we made contact with the tour guide, the tour was interesting and the guide was knowledgeable.
Near the end of the tour, we asked to be dropped at a 'good snorkeling beach' and that we'd make arrangements to get back to our ship.
He made a call to his 'aunt' and arranged for her to pick us up and get us back. VERY accommodating...
The beach he dropped us at was beautiful and had a small open-air restaurant but, snorkeling revealed a flat, grassy bottom with little life, jet ski hazards and not much else.
When our ride dropped us at the pier, we were charged another 32 dollars for the ride...NOT what we expected!
Do your research and pay a taxi driver 200 dollars to take you where you want to go...
Picked up from resort reception by our driver Lionel - he was fantastic - gave us four and a half hours tour - just the two of us - took us to almost all points of interest on the island and imparted all of the way his extensive local knowledge then delivered us back to reception.
Both the tour and Lionel could not be faulted.
I expected a group tour on a bus. We were pleasantly surprised when our tour guide Dale picked us up in a Ford Explorer and we were the only guests. We loved this more personalized tour. We were free to ask any questions at any time and if we wanted to spend a little more time in one place, we could do so without inconveniencing others. We had an excellent tour of the island and highlights were pointed out and described to us as we went. The vehicle was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Dale was friendly and knowledgeable. This tour exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend it.
Winston is a star. This is a great way to see the majority of the island. Nelsons dockyard, Shirley Heights etc. You do spend most of the time driving but Winston is a source of all kinds of information.
We totally enjoyed this tour. Our guide did an outstanding job of explaining things about this lovely island. He was able to answer any questions.
