I was able to see a lot of the destroyed cities. I even went into some of the old buildings and it was like time stood still. I'm very happy I went. And also, the other side of Montserrat is beautiful!!!

The only place to view and understand the Soufriere Hills Volcano. Its a fair drive to the observatory but well worth the effort. The staff are pleasant and courteous and full of information about the eruption. Do not miss the video of the eruption shown...More

You can see the volcano from all around with smoke still coming out of it. Tours are given permission to go into the exclusion zone which is the area hit by or still in the area of another possible eruption. It is hard to believe...More
