The tour begins with a transfer from your hotel for a stop in the colonial center of "the world's smallest capital", Victoria. Highlights here are a visit are the court buildings, museum, post office and the clock-tower (twin of the one outside London's Victoria Station). A turn around the corner takes you to the 'Codevar' building where local crafts, including the renowned Kreol (Creole Gold) are on display for sale. A walk across Albert Street leads you to the focal point of the town, its colorful market where stalls of fresh fish, tropical fruits & vegetables, herbs & spices, are displayed in an abundance of fragrances. This is followed by a drive across the Sans Soucis mountain pass, with a photo stop at the historical Mission Lodge, en-route to a Creole restaurant for lunch (included). After lunch, the tour continues around the southern tip of the island to the restored colonial plantation of 'Jardin du Roi', which is steeped in the short history of the Creoles as well as the Georges family, whose family tree apparently carries a link to Louis XVII of France. A cold drink of home-grown fruit welcomes visitors, before you tour the surrounding plantation of vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs and spices. The rest of the afternoon is for relaxation, with a stop at the Craft Village on the way back to your hotel, at around 4pm.
