TORTOLA HISTORICAL DAY TOUR  
  This day will replace Tortola's mystery with a clear vision of its beauty. Tortola, the largest of a small group of islands, will provide a contrast of experiences on your tour. While the southern part of the island is mountainous and rocky and covered wtih scrub, frangipani and ginger thomas, the north has groves of bananas, mangoes and palm trees and long shady beaches.

The south shore is the capital and business centre of the territory. This area houses many of the oldest buildings, churches and the colonial prison and is the most picturesque street in Roadtown.

You'll see these sights from your open air safari bus and with your guide's narration, you will understand the past through the present. You will receive the true and tall tales of the discovery of the island and have a chance to visit the sites that contributed to bring Tortola into the present. Government buildings and particular sites of merit will round out the urban portion of the tour.

A stop at Mt. Healthy National Park will introduce you to the old windmill where sugar cane was manufactured to produce brown sugar. A visit to the 100-year old Callwood Rum Distillery will bring an education of the production of the Caribbean's most popular drink. You will be able to sample some pure cane rum at its best.

You will have some time to roam and souvenir shop on this special island, as you surely will want to take home an item to remind you of Tortola
