Tracy, our guide, was very knowledgeable of the area and was very humorous to ride and tour with. This company was less expensive than the cruise line. We loaded the bus just off the cruise terminal gate.

The only thing better than Island Trams marketing skills, are the tours themselves. Tracey was funny, well-spoken, and full of information about the islands. A couple of stops broke up the trip. My only negative was a pair of talkative guests from Europe (Germany, perhaps?) who rudely and loudly talked to each other during the tour - drowning out much... More

My group of 6 went on the tram tour with Tracy as our driver and guide. We had a great time. Tracy was fantastic and Doug was very accommodating to our group. When we left I felt Tracy, Doug, and his wife were our new best friends.

Took a carnival cruise to Grand Turk and had not booked an excursion because we really didn't want to pay $79 per person to take an island excursion. As we walked down the pier off the ship we encountered the salesman for Island Trams for $25 per person. We took their excursion and were very satisfied. Our driver was very... More

Excellent tour. Tracey, the tour guide, is top notch. I was with a group of senior citizens (SC) who could not walk long distances. When we booked the tour, we didn't know that the tour bus was outside of the resort area. We had to walk to get to the tour bus. Although the walk for an average healthy person... More

This was one of the first tours we saw advertised when we got off the cruise ship. My husband talked to the person and he was very friendly and explained what the tour would cover. We only waited just a few minutes before we headed out to meet the tram. It was a little tricky to find the tram as... More

We took this tour just spur of the moment. We had planned on just laying on the beach all day, but saw a sign for this tour on the beach as we left our cruise ship, and thought "why not". Well why not indeed. This ended up being one of our favorite excursions. Tracey, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable... More

Tour was interesting and not very much to do other than going to the beach. Tour guide was good Only negative was I booked on line and paid $30/pp but the people who walked on at beach paid $25/pp. Still worth it.
