Dominica Things to Do
Waterfalls and Botanical Gardens
Dec 12, 2013, we went on a private van tour with www.bumpiingtours.com. The tour guide and driver picked us up near the cruise ship docks in Roseau and after introductions were made, we went through town and up winding mountain roads into the rain forest. Eventually, we hiked to Emerald Falls and Trafalgar Falls. All along our route, our guide, Kelvin, answered all our questions. It was evident Kelvin was very knowledgeable about and devoted to his beautiful island nation. Asher, our driver, was amazing and talented. He has a PhD in driving (Pot Hold Dodger)!
The variety and density of flowering plants and various fruit trees in Dominica is beyond belief. Through Kelvin, we learned about the hurricane that seriously damaged Dominca about seven years ago and the government's successful attempts to restore the country. The tour was a mixture of driving, walking, (optional) swimming at the falls, and sight seeing. Kelvin kept a running commentary of what we were seeing and was able to answer every question we posed. We will not hesitate to utilize the services of Bumpiingtours (yes, that is with two i's) upon our next visit to this lovely island.Related to:
