Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Roseau
Dominica's sassy and colorful capital, Roseau (rose-oh) hugs the southwest coast of the Roseau River. It is the hub of this small island of volcanic terrain, sparkling waterfalls, beaches and lush national parks set against a backdrop of emerald mountains. Roseau's dense town center boasts historic buildings made of wood and stone that line the streets with a unique architectural style that borrows from the Spanish, English and French. A scenic drive reveals both the lovely natural highlights of the Roseau Valley as well as the city's landmarks.

Botanical Gardens:
This 40-acre oasis is the largest swath of green space in Roseau and is considered one of the botanical gems of the Caribbean. Established in 1891 by order of the British Crown, these excellent botanical gardens are home to over 50 indigenous species of plants and trees and home to an aviary for Sisserou parrots, the national bird of Dominica. A stroll through the fragrant blooms and verdant vegetation makes for an idyllic retreat. In 1979, the garden was ravaged by Hurricane David, and evidence of this can be seen in a large bus that is crushed beneath a toppled bapbob tree. The wide lawns are used for national parades, celebrations and cricket matches. After a brief tour of the gardens, enjoy a complimentary drink.

What you will see along the way:
From the trolley, keep your camera handy as your 90-minute tour takes in spectacular views of Dominica's incredible scenery, vistas of the Caribbean Sea, the exotic blooms at the Botanical Gardens as well as Roseau's key city sights, historic monuments and colorful, colonial architecture that lines its bustling streets.
