Grand Turk Historical Sightseeing Tour by Tram
From US$30.00
Overview
Get a comprehensive tour of Grand Turk without riding in a stuffy tour bus on this excursion aboard an open-air tram. Over the course of a half-day, see the best historical, natural, and architectural sites the island has to offer, accompanied by a guide's insights. Visit the Grand Turk Lighthouse, Cockburn Town, and the natural salt ponds to get a full picture of the island's character.
What to Expect
Make your way to Grand Turk's tram station, located near the cruise terminal on the island's southern side. Hop aboard the open-sided tram for an around-the-island tour, traveling all the way to the northern tip and back, over the course of the next several hours.

Listen as your guide provides commentary on the sights, including churches, inns, windmills, and antique cannons. You'll get glimpses of donkeys and wild horses on the way to Cockburn Town, where you can explore on your own.

Back on the tram, proceed past the National Building and Her Majesty's Prison—great examples of colonial architecture—and then head for the Grand Turk Lighthouse on the island's northern tip. Pass the natural salt ponds, now acting as a nesting ground for the local flamingos, and learn about their importance in Grand Turk's history and economy.

Your comprehensive tour ends back at the tram station.

Fun Tour of Grand Turk

We didn't book ahead, just noticed Ray advertising as were exiting the pier. It seemed a like a great deal and both my wife and I enjoyed the tour. We both found Ray to be extremely knowledgeable about the island and a great tour guide.

The tram was a great way to really see the island and the unfortunate devastation it had endured from the last hurricane. Visiting Coburn to see the museum, town, hospital, salt basins, and the lighthouse really put the island life into perspective. There were several...More

Island is very small (1 mile by 7 miles) and completely flat. There is not much to see. Lighthouse is $3 extra & must climb up. Donkeys are roaming freely and you get to hand feed them water with a bottle. That was awesome! I...More
