When I got to Grenada I was greeting by some friends of mine that highly suggested several things to do. One of those things was to take a Cutty Tour. What is a Cutty Tour? Good question! Cutty is a local taxi driver that loves to give day long tours.
My guest and I used him for a tour across the island (around $200-250 total) to see a chocolate factory, Belmont Estates, River Antoine Rum Distillery, and more. In the coming blogs I will tell you about each of these destinations and why you should visit them, but today I simply want to tell you how much we enjoyed having Cutty show us the island.
For me, the thing that sets a Cutty Tour apart from other guides is his love and appreciating for the diverse plant life on Grenada. It seemed like he stopped at every tree on the island and showed us what was unique about that plant or tree. My highlights were when he peeled cinnamon bark straight off the tree, when he opened a dried-out pod and show us where luffas come from, and explaining about nutmegs (the island is famous for them after all). I could go on, but the sheer volume of info he gave us is hard to comprehend.
