If you’re short on time but want to make the most of this amazing island, consider spending a few hours on the Round Island tour. You will be whisked off to the most beautiful lookouts in all of Antigua, as well as riding through the many unique villages!
Great views!

A great tour of the island visiting the main sights including Nelsons Yard, Shirley Heights etc. Our driver, Vernon, was excellent. A really nice, interesting guy who immediately made us feel comfortable. He was also an excellent driver. The only negative was that the tour operator gave us different meeting points so we didn’t find him for half an hour. However, this in no way affected the tour. We recommend Vernon and the tour.
Beautiful trip
