CREOLE BUS SENSATION
My Explorations, Passepartour
Originally British, the Creole buses were the first large means of transportation on the island in the 50's. Discover Grenada on board this funny means of transport! Several panoramic views from Fort George to Fort Frederick will give you a glimpse of this beautiful destination.
- Discover Grenada on board a typical creole bus
- Fort George
- Fort Frederick
- Neglected and forgotten over the course of years due to the competition of modern transport, they are currently making their comeback to provide you with the opportunity of savouring the charm of Grenada in the early days! Nothing has changed: bright colours, and deliciously padded wooden benches. So, off we go for a truly local cocktail. Grenada's capital is very British in nature with the Carenage, an adorable little harbour set in the hollow of an ancient volcano. This is our point of departure from where we launch ourselves in the assault of St George's, following a labyrinth of roads reminiscent of San Francisco, Caribbean style!
- And on board of the Creole buses, the drive takes a turn for the unexpected! It is indeed a bit of a climb to reach the heights of Grenadian history; we are on our way to the sumptuous panoramas that can be admired from Fort George which overlooks the small capital. Its ancient stones and rocks tell the tale of the culture shock between England and France in the old days. Fort Frederick, meanwhile, stands dominant above the tropical rainforest and the Caribbean Sea, offering you a second stop with a 360-degree panoramic view. Leaving Fort Frederick behind, head to the Quarantine Point peninsula for an exceptional photo stop with stunning views of Grand Anse and Morne Rouge bays before returning to the cruise terminal.
