A Recent Review of this tour

Vellie is the best tour guide ever! She went above and beyond to provide the perfect personal tour. Along with showing me various places in Antigua such as Long Island, Shirley Heights, Nelson's Dockyard, the history regarding these places, Vellie greatly assisted me with finding information about my grandfather who was originally from Barbuda. There is nothing else Vellie could have added to the tour. It was perfect! Vellie, thank you so much.
