Sweeney does a tour which includes stopping at Botanical Gardens, Cruzan Rum Factory, Whim Museum and Plantation, city of Fredericksted & Fort Fredericksted, driving through the Rain Forest, driving by the scenic golf course and Columbus’ Landing at Salt River.
Departs from the Old Scale House Christiansted. Try to schedule the tour for one of the first days so that you can get oriented - if possible before you get there. Runs Monday to Saturday from 10 A.M. to about 3:30 P.M. Price: $25 a person.
There are daily flights from Miami and San Juan and commuter flights to and from nearby islands.
You can rent a car or a taxi/tour car and have the guide show you the island; and that was exactly the way we did it: we arived at the airport, found a guide and visited the island. Since our visit to this island was only a 5 h stop-over on our way from Trinidand and Tobago to the Dominican Republic our guide knew where to take us, what to see, and where to have lunch...
