The tour starts of with a 20 min information session concerning the rise and eventually fall of the kailinago people. It was interesting to learn about the discovery of the 'new world' through the eyes of the native people. The walk through the kailinago mock village was interesting, however due to it being low season there was no local entertainment.... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure of visiting Dominica on a number of cruise stops. If you have never visited the island before you are in for a treat - unless you prefer the over hyped, over priced cruise tours. This is an island that's perfect for just appreciating the beauty of a tropical island and its wonderful... More

I came across these indigenous people on my search of things to do in Dominica. I am a Tour Guide from Barbados and culture is one of my specialties so visiting this territory was one of the highlights of my trip. Before I started the tour around the compound, I was oriented to a history lesson of the Kalinagos. The... More

Our tour of the Kalinago (Carib) territory and visit to the model village was interesting and fun to interact with the guides and villagers. Gives you a great perspective of the history of Dominica and the challenges of maintaining the Kalinago cultural identity. The casava bread was very tasty. Our group arranged to have lunch prepared for us on site... More

A must visit for anyone visiting Dominica to get an understanding of the country and history of the people. The Caribs are down to 3000 now and welcome all the visitors they can get to help them maintain their lifestyle as the Government are not as helpful as they could be to the indigenous people. Tour was informative and definitely... More

Our Kalinago ( Carib) driver and guide, Kent, was very knowledgeable and happy to share his knowledge with us When we got to the village Kent got a rest and we were escorted by another Kalinago guide who explained some of the history...
