The roads of Antigua will take you through village after interesting village as you make your way to a private home with a wonderful history. As you approach this property, you'll begin to hear about the land and the story behind it. Soon you'll find yourself on top of a panoramic vista overlooking a valley, with cows and sheep dotting the landscape.

The home looks modest from the exterior, but you'll be astounded once inside. Artifacts from the original settlers who bought the land in the 16th century surround you. The owner, who is also a direct descendant of the original family, will graciously walk you through the areas of her home that are open to you and will answer questions about her prized collections. Endemic trees and medicinal herbs are grown in the backyard and not only will your guide provide knowledge on the healing powers of these plants, but you will also enjoy a freshly brewed cup of herbal tea. There is no doubt that everyone of any age will be entranced here.

We will continue on to a local Pineapple Farm where you will get to see production of this important crop. You will see the fruit in all of its stages of growth, and even get to enjoy it later on when you are at the beach, but first we are headed to Fryes Estate. Here you will see two of the island's oldest Sugar Mills, now in ruins and immensely picturesque.

We can't let you forget that you're on a Caribbean island and, therefore, our next stop will be a beautiful beachfront setting. Whether you prefer to lounge on a chair in the shade of an umbrella and gaze at the azure blue water or jump into it, you'll love this refreshing time on a private beach of white sand. Families will enjoy the beach games or water sports activities while building up hearty appetites. Luckily, this free time is followed by a terrific and typical West Indian lunch. The food is tantalizing and the staff are very welcoming as you dine in the midst of the music of steel pans and a lovely local artist reciting poetry. You'll be sorry when we remind you that it's time to depart.

Shore Excursions

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
