On this accessible Tortola driving tour, you will experience several places of importance to the island and its friendly native people…
You will visit the J.R O’Neal Botanical Garden, which is a peaceful refuge located right in the center of the capital of Tortola, Road Town. It is a beautiful 4 acre garden that offers a lush array of indigenous and exotic tropical plants you won’t find anywhere else!
This accessible Tortola shore excursion continues to the historic Church at Kingstown, a ruin located just east of Road Town. The church, which is also known as the African Church, was built in 1840 by a community of Africans who had been liberated from illegal slave ships. Although the roof is gone and all that remains of the structure are crumbling stone exterior walls, the church is steeped in history and a must see when visiting Tortola.

Your Tortola accessible guided tour will end with a drive and Fort Recovery, the British Island’s oldest intact structure. This turreted gun empowerment with 3ft thick walls was built by the Dutch in early 1600s and has served many different purposes, It is believed that somewhere between 1623 and 1630, Fort Recovery may have been used as a barracks for wounded and ill soldiers; this is probably the source of the name Fort Recovery.
