Charleston, Taste of Charleston Walking Tour
Charleston is rich in both history and food.  The rice which was grown here in the 1700s and 1800s made this city the wealthiest in Colonial America.  This wealth allowed the planters who grew the rice and the merchants and factors who marketed and transported it to entertain lavishly with sumptuous banquets.  The enslaved Africans who were brought here to work the rice fields brought with them the sweet potato, the benne seed, okra, and collard greens among other southern favorites. Along with settlers from England Charleston’s population included French Huguenots, Sephardic Jews, and settlers from the Germanic countries, from Scotland and from Ireland.  All of these groups contributed to Charleston cuisine.  Today Charleston has over 700 restaurants and fantastic chefs, many of whom have been awarded the coveted James Beard award for excellence.  These chefs use not only beef and pork which were the most popular meats in the 1700s but also seafood which was abundant in the low country. Many chefs also embrace the farm to table philosophy and outsource to local and regional farms. On this special walking tour you will not only learn about the rich history of the city and the way that Charleston cuisine is related to that history but you will have the opportunity to visit some downtown culinary gems: the establishment of one of Charleston's fine chef, and  several other interesting food purveyors.

Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes, clothes appropriate for the weather and bring a good appetite.

Vieques, Concierge Collection: Evening Bio Bay Kaykaing
Welcome to the brightest documented bio bay in the world. The very narrow inlet to the bay and shallow depth throughout promote the high salinity that the dinoflagellates (these are the micro-organisms that create the luminescence) need to prosper.  Red mangroves thrive on the edges of the bay and release the vitamin B-12 that these organisms need.  This bay has also been protected from development that could potentially produce light pollution that would take away from the brightness of the bay. You will be given a life vest and board 2-person kayaks to paddle approximately ¾ of a mile one way on the bay and use the wind to assist your return. The kayak tour will begin at dusk so you can see and learn about the mangroves and bay that provide the environment to support the bioilluminescence.  The kayak tour will continue after dark for you to experience the water sparkle around you; an experience like no other.   

Please  note: Wear casual clothes that can get wet, swimsuits are optional. Watershoes are preferred, and all other shoes will be removed at shore. Cameras are highly discouraged as it is difficult to capture the glow in the water.

Just around the corner is the Grenada National Museum which is housed in a building which served as the French barracks from 1704. It later became two different hotels under different owners. Once you reach the north end of The Carenage, get your cameras ready as it is said to be the most picturesque harbor in the Caribbean and this vantage point will offer you some great photo opportunities. Next you will make your way to Church Street; The Catholic, Anglican and Presbyterian Churches, all built around the 1800s, can all be found here and you will notice that some were damaged by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and are now mere remnants. From here you will venture down the famous Market Hill, whose slopes resemble those of San Francisco and then walk around the Market Square where you will see fresh fruits and vegetables and spices being sold. Here you will be served a refreshing drink before heading back to the ship.

Please note:  Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a hat, sunglasses, your camera and sunscreen.

Bridgetown: Barbados Island Tour with Airport Transfer
Your tour will begin with a leisurely drive along the Gold Coast, home to many wealthy residents, and will take you to the stunning area of Bathsheba.  This is where the Atlantic surf pounds the coastline and it is a famous spot for international and local surfing competitions.  A walk on the beach is a must. Heading into the hills, you will arrive at St. John’s Church. There are stunning views from the churchyard - a perfect photo opportunity.  The church contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendant of the Byzantine Imperial family. The present building was constructed in 1836, and the pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. Through sleepy country villages and sugar cane fields,  you will make your way to Sunbury House dating back to 1650. The house was destroyed by fire in 1995, and was gracefully restored and re-opened in 1996. It possesses one of the country's superior collections of antiques. The cellar houses a unique collection of antique carriages, the largest collection in the Caribbean, as well as many items used in the domestic life of the plantation. It also houses a very old collection of optical machinery and sight testing equipment, some of the first to come to the West Indies including the first lens grinding plant.  Enjoy a light deli-style lunch with a complimentary rum or fruit punch.  A short drive will take you to the airport where you will be met and assisted with your luggage and airline check-in.

Please note: There are about 20 steps to climb at Sunbury House and 10 steps down to the cellar. This tour will end with a drop off at the Grantley Adams International Airport or the Accra Beach Hotel.
