Research & Training
We work in and with the archives, local libraries, and colleges, to collect and store data. We research and acquire historical information of the entire Caribbean region. This historical data is used in training our tour guides and to further our goals of entertaining and enlightening our clients.
We take the skill of touring seriously. Our commitment is to provide fun and exciting experiences that the whole family can enjoy. We understand that it is sometimes difficult to understand the different West Indian dialects, therefore, our drivers are mindful of this and embraces the science of breathing used by singers, public speakers, and actors who enunciate and modulate their words and voices so that they are understood in context. We work harder at being the very best. It is the only thing that guarantees our success in a market that is saturated with competition from cruise-ship-tours.
We cater to the intelligent shopper on a quest for good value and the highest quality possible.
Every cultural tradition is equally important to us and the different traditional herbal medicines are used in some of the same ways and there are others that are not practiced island to island. We do not administer these herbs, because of random allergens; however, many of these were used to great effect for millennia. We simply explain what they are historically used to cure, for entertainment purposes only.

Chanca piedra is an herb that is used by the older folks back in the day, and still today. “The whole plant is used to make medicine. Chanca piedra is most commonly used by mouth for various disorders of the urinary tract, digestive tract, and liver, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these or other uses.” - webmd.com
