Full Tour Description
Grenada’s history has been a fascinating and at times tumultuous story from its early Amerindian settlers to the present day. This Grenada historical tour was designed in consultation with Grenadian historians Alister and Margaret Hughes and invites you to travel through time and discover the island’s captivating past. Learn about the Kalinago Indians who arrived in Grenada over 1,500 years ago. Browse the capital’s beautiful Georgian architecture along the Carenage, the inner harbour often referred to as the ‘Portofino of the Caribbean’. Here you’ll find the beautiful ‘Christ of the Deep’ statue, commemorating a heroic rescue mission undertaken by Grenadian fishermen. Your expert Caribbean Horizons guide will share stories of Julien Fedon, a revolutionary in the 1700s, and of the more contemporary 1979 revolution and American Intervention in 1983. At the Maurice Bishop International Airport you’ll visit two monuments commemorating American and Cuban lives lost during the conflict. In St. George’s, visit various historical sites and monuments such as Fort Frederick, Fort George, Sendall Tunnel, the National Museum, and more.
