About this trip

Embark on an unforgettable 7-hour journey through the captivating history and natural beauty of Antigua. Your adventure begins at 8:30 am with a convenient pickup from your resort, hotel, or preferred location. Get ready to explore paradise in a day as we combine the best of both worlds: an offshore island escapade and a mainland excursion.

Trip overview

Your day begins with a comfortable pickup at your chosen location, setting the stage for an incredible experience ahead. We'll kick off the adventure by heading to Seatons Village, where we'll complete a quick check-in and orientation.

Next, brace yourself for a 2-minute boat ride to the enchanting Laviscount Island. As you approach the island's dock, you'll be greeted by the breathtaking sight of vibrant red mangroves and shimmering shoals of fish darting beneath the clear waters. But that's just the beginning.

Prepare to be mesmerized by encounters with the island's indigenous Aldabra Tortoises, a truly remarkable sight. As you explore further, our island specialist will introduce you to the charismatic Macaw Parrots, adding a touch of tropical charm to your day.


The adventure continues as we unveil the rare and fascinating Lesser Antillean Iguana, an exclusive native species to this Caribbean paradise. Although bidding farewell to Laviscount Island might be tough, our journey through time beckons.

Step back in time to the era when sugar was king, and rum flowed freely. Delve into Antigua's colonial history as you visit old British fortifications and explore the 17th-century sugar plantation known as Betty's Hope.


Be awestruck by the natural wonder of Devil's Bridge, a remarkable rock formation sculpted by the passage of time. Discover the intriguing story behind its name and the legends that surround it.

As we journey through picturesque villages and towns, our knowledgeable and experienced guide will immerse you in the true island life experience. Relax and savor a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, where you can savor the flavors of the Caribbean.

Uncover the mystery of Antigua's first visitors – was it Christopher Columbus? Explore an 18th-century British Naval Dockyard, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and capture unforgettable moments.

Ascend to the heights of Shirley's Heights, where you'll witness some of the most breathtaking views of Antigua. Learn about the island's rich flora and fauna as you traverse through the lush rainforest.

We had a wonderful half day tour with lunch of Antigua with Roger himself. Informative, friendly and chatty, we felt that the day was great value for money and very enjoyable. If you are looking for an island tour (or airport transfer) don’t hesitate to contact Roger. You won’t be disappointed.

Nous avons passé une très belle demie journée avec Roger taxis tours. Très agréable et sympathique, informations très intéressantes. Le véhicule est parfaitement propre et la conduite très prudente. Nous n'hésiterons pas à faire appel à ses services la prochaine fois ! Valérie

We used Roger Taxi Service to transfer from the airport in Antigua to our hotel and then from the hotel to the port to embark on a cruise. I would highly recommend their service. They were on time or alerted me by text that they were trapped in traffic, helpful with luggage and getting into and out of the van, friendly and knowledgeable, answering our questions and getting us there safe and sound. It was also easy to book and pay.

We would definitely use Rogers Tours again if we return to Antigua and would definitely recommend him to anyone visiting. Sharon & Brian Stoneham

Roger Taxi tours is so professional and always on time. My husband and I had the best time in Antigua. We went to the Sting Ray City adventure and also opted for day tour. We saw so much of Antigua and had lunch at a wonderful local restaurant! We enjoyed our time so much we asked to be taken to a local spot the next day. Our entire trip was enjoyable and was made possible by Roger Taxi Tour. We would highly highly recommend

I have used Roger with Roger Taxi Tours both times that I have visited Antigua. He is very kind, professional, super clean vehicles, and i will not use anyone else on the Island. I highly recommend his company for your transfer and excursion needs when you travel to Antigua, or send clients to Antigua!
