The Island of Grand Turk is steeped in the rich history of piracy, the once lucrative salt trade, influences of Bermudian settlers in the 18th century and traditions of the Christian church.
Discovered in 1492, there is much to share, so be my guest as we explore the most significant monuments that give Grand Turk its unique character. Don't forget your camera as wild life sightings are very likely.
**Guests' specific interests are considered and may be agreed on as part of the tour. For example, special sites for flora and fauna enthusiasts can be arranged or bird watchers may be accommodated to between April to June**
Your tour begins with a short drive to the John Glenn commemorative capsule for a photo opportunity. Enjoy a natural drive along historic Duke Street and stop at Front Street to visit the lovely Anglican Church built in 1899. Front Street is lined with historic 18th and 19th century landmarks reflecting the Bermudian-style architecture and is the center of the Turks and Caicos' capital. The tour continues to a working historic lighthouse where you will learn about Grand Turk's "pirate past". Finally, you'll stop at the Salt House, a tribute to Grand Turk's salt-raking past. You can browse through the shop's souvenirs and exhibits which chronicle the history of the salt and slave industry on the island.
