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.

Great time was had by all

This was my first time in Grand Turk on a cruise and in a moment of madness I decided booked a private tour for 33 Facebook friends with island Trams! I was so relieved when the arrangements I'd made online went pretty much to plan...More

Tram Tour of Grand Turk

There is not much to do on this island but I would recommend doing this excursion. Its wheelchair accessible and you get to see the entire island. The owners are lovely people as well.

Tour was great Island is a dump

If you want to see Grand Turk this tour shows you the Island for a reasonable price. Tour guide was great and tram ride was fine but the Island itself is barren, dirty and full of garbage. My advice is to stay on the beach.

Thanks for you review. Unfortunately we went through two major hurricanes in 2017, it has taken quite some time to get the island back to normal. We are a tight knit community, we all continue to make improvements.
