  1. My wife Jamie and I were in Antigua in early February 2020 on the Celebrity Summit, and we had an exceptional experience on Galleon Beach. We got off the ship and walked to the end of the pier where all the taxi drivers are located. We were expecting a fairly high pressure situation, but it was surprisingly a very low pressure/low stress experience. We negotiated a round trip (for two) fare to and from Galleon Beach (40 minutes each way) for around $40, which was in-line with what we'd expect to pay for an Uber or Lyft in the states. Although the majority of our three hours on G
  2. My wife Jamie and I were in Antigua in early February 2020 on the Celebrity Summit, and we had an exceptional experience that we want to share. We typically seek out active adventures on our port days, but on our day in Antigua, we were both quite exhausted and sore from our hike up the Petit Piton in St. Lucia the day before. We had initially planned on renting a car and doing a self-guided beach tour (like we did in Barbados a couple days earlier), but due to our lack of energy, we decided just to pick the beach we were most excited about (Galleon Beach) and find a cab to take us there.

  3. We had a very positive experience as well. We initially had a rental care reserved for our port day in Antigua in early February, but decided last minute that we didn't want to deal with the hassle of driving on the island.

  4. That sounds like a lot of fun, then you don't have to worry about adjusting to driving on the other side of the road (if you are used to driving on the right hand side).
  5. Thanks so much for the feedback, that is one big reason we make our videos, to help others plan their travels. Browns Beach was great for snorkeling off the beach. We hope you enjoy it!
  6. We cruised Feb 2020 and looked into hiring a private driver for the day. We found it to be quite expensive and ended up renting a car from Voyager. If you are willing to rent a car and drive yourself it will likely be much cheaper, but we know not everyone is comfortable with that. The island does use right hand drive cars and drives on the left side of the road. We are not used to that but we got along fine. We were able to visit 8 different beaches (Soup Bowl, Bathsheba, Shark Hole, Bottom Bay, Crane Beach, Foul Bay, Miami Beach and Browns Beach). If you are interest
