    Sophia Is the best tour guide ever!!!
    As someone who was born in Grenada but not raised their, I knew the basics of the history of my country. While visiting with friends we fort Fredrick’s was in the the list of to do and the tour didn’t disappoint, our tour guide was Sophia she was so young but extremely educated on the historical facts. She had our attention from start to finish and even quizzed us at the end of the tour, she made the experience just great.

    Part of trip
    Really great vantage point to see the area of St George’s. Interesting spot with some original brickwork but it is definitely the spectacular views that draw you in. Easy to access by car and then a short walk

    Great views, interesting history
    Visited Fort Frederick as part of a larger, multi-stop tour of the island. This was probably my favorite part of the trip. Takes a little while to get up there, but it is an enjoyable drive up to the fort (lots of great views and interesting to see the communities of the island). You can get a guide that will give you a little education about the fort, which is very interesting to hear and point out features of importance. Views from the top of the fort are spectacular - you have a great vantage point of the island, being able to see in many different directions for a long way (and see some of the other landmarks of the island)! Really enjoyed visiting the fort. If you like views, this may be worth going up to see standalone. If you're going as part of a multi-stop trip like me, this is a great spot!

    Spectacular views
    Our guide, Erica, was very knowledgeable and spoke in clear English. After the overview we had lots of questions and she demonstrated her comprehensive knowledge of Grenada. There was no formal charge, but she earned a nice tip. The views are spectacular, but knowing the history of this fort adds a lot. A local band played by the entrance to the fort which added nice flavor to the visit.

    Lovely views
    Fort Frederick was was started by the French in 1779 and completed by the British in 1791, after the island changed hands. The ruins are interesting, but there is not a lot to see here. The views of St. George's are magnificent, though.

    A very interesting piece of history. One of the forts built in St George's. Lovely views off the sides looking on all of st George's. Short informative tour telling you about the forts history. Also there is a lovely breeze at the top of the fort which is very refreshing on a hot day.

    1700s stone fort, needs informative plaques
    I visited Fort Frederick as part of a shore excursion for a cruise. This fort was built by the French and the British in the 1700s. The fort overlooks St. George’s harbor and the city below, so visitors can see some pretty views. I walked around the grounds on my own, and I felt interested in seeing the stone walls and stairwells. I saw an unfinished, hand-painted sign that mentioned some information about the fort, and I would have appreciated more informative signs.

Just in Grenada for the day as we was on a cruise ship, had a tour around the island which before the beach we went to this fort high up giving us great views of the capital and the seashore. We only spent around 20 minutes here even though we paid a small entry fee as there wasn’t much to see other than just an historical site with a few walls to be honest.

This is way up on the hill overlooking St. George's. It gives a great view of that side of the island including Grand Anse beach and the town of St. George's. It was attacked by the US during the fighting in the 1980's.

Fort Frederic is another French fort in Grenada set inland and protecting the capital from inland side.
It seemed better preserved and higher elevated than the Fort George downtown. However, you need a taxi to come to visit it, so count on around 2 hours for a complete trip.

Visited this place as part of an excursion and we were so fortunate to have Sophia as our tour guide. This place is loaded with history and Sophia does the best job ever of telling us all about it. She is very good at her job.
