Hi, If you happened to visit Port Royal. Do take a look at giddy house,which will be half tilted. But entrance to the fort will be more for foreigners. If you could reach early around 10am,you might get chance to get entrance for 800JMD.

We took a group of students to learn about the history of Port Loyal and the tour guide was great and the youth really enjoyed learning about the island, pirates and history.

I was pleasantly surprised of the things I learned from doing this tour. The guide was very polite and had a lot of information about the history of events that occurred here. Gave me a greater appreciation for my island.

My husband and I visited here and although a bit pricey to enter it was interesting. We had a tour guide and nice to hear some history of the area. The Giddy house was the highlight

Old fort, which could use some more attention by local authorities, Port Royals story and past are not well reflected today and wil probably not be in the future

Interesting step back in time to the days when Port Royal was the "wickedest city on earth" (although no specific examples were given to explain why). Lots of steps to navigate for those with mobility issues. It would have been even better after the government...More
