Meet your group and guide at a central location and stroll down the historic Main Street, which dates from the 17th century, on the way to the Fort Christian Museum. Learn about this remarkable red building, once used as a police station and the governor's mansion. Stop to see where the Emancipation Proclamation was read in 1848, now called the Emancipation Garden. Learn that the Danes used the 99 Steps to navigate St. Thomas' hills.

    Stop by several local restaurants serving local delicacies such as calaloo, fried pate, and local seafood. Your food tastings will be accompanied by the island's local Bushwacker, a frozen drink made from chocolate, coconut, and rum.

    Our group consisted of 4 adults. The tour was relaxed and informative. Arrive hungry as there was plenty to sample. Gerard was our guide and he had several suggestions for the remainder of our stay.

    So glad you could join us for the tour. The young people at My Brothers Workshop wear shirts saying "Hurricane Heroes". They served more than 37,000 free meals after Irma and Maria. Quite an organiation. Gerard

    we enjoyed this tour. It's not too much walking but includes a number of sites in the center of Charlotte Amalie. The food is great! Food starts a bit slow, but by the end, you've had more than enough.
