Excursion 'GRAND TURK TOURIST TRAIN'

Description

We visit the major attractions of the Island of Grand Turk on board a small tourist road train which takes us around the historic buildings, the natural beauty spots and finally to a beautiful beach to relax.



What we will see
  • John Glenn Memorial
  • Salinas
  • Old city
  • Front Street


What we will do
  • Our local guide welcomes us as we board the train. During the journey towards what is known as the historic part of the city, the guide provides us with information about the geography and history of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
  • We pass in front of the John Glenn Memorial and we visit the salinas to discover their fundamental role in the island's history.
  • Still on board the train, we visit the old city, where we encounter tree-lined avenues and old houses, some of which were built in typical Bermudan style.
  • We proceed towards Front Street, where we leave the train and enjoy a little free time before returning to the ship. We have time to take a few photos, visit the local souvenir shops on the seafront or, and why not, enjoy the small but beautiful beach and go for a swim!
