    The wonderful Al will make you feel very welcome and at home the moment you meet him. Thankfully, we booked our tour for a Sunday when the island of Grenada is mostly quiet. We visited beautiful waterfalls, the Belmont Estate, the disused airport and also travelled up to the coast. Al's expert knowledge kept us informed every step of the way and his expert driving made us feel we were in safe hands. Al's knowledge of the island is insurmountable and he will give you interesting facts along the journey. He was more than happy to accustom our trip to our specific requirements. Al showed us local beaches and eateries within walking distance of our hotel and even arranged for my poorly friend to see an ex pat nurse en route. Having toured most of the island, it was no trouble for Al to drive us back, at our request, to the Belmont Estate for a late lunch. One thing is for sure, Al will make you fall very much in love with the island of Spice.
