The cruise line tour was (Labadee Traditions) great.

The cruise line tour was (Labadee Traditions) great. It included a boat ride to Norm's Place Guest House with cultural information and performances.

It is a great excursion, but it is not exactly what you are expecting from the description. You DON'T go to a village. You walk up steps and see different people making purses, peanut butter, bread and coffee. You get to try the peanut butter and bread, but you only get to smell the coffee. The people are in the woods, not factories for this tour. You get a free drink when you get there, and you can buy more drinks. They also have non-alcoholic drinks, which is our family preference.The beach is GORGEOUS! Don't leave your stuff on the chairs because they tell you it is safe but it is not. People(cruisers) will take your stuff, and the people on the island do not watch your stuff as closely as they say. We really enjoyed the excursion, but you will not see a village as I was expecting, and we were a little disappointed. We really enjoyed the WONDERFUL things the gentleman that was our tour guide on land said about the Lord. As he put it, "If you woke up this morning to another day, then you should be GRATEFUL TO THE LORD!" Read Less

This was fabulous. We went to a private cove, only 47 people with plenty of beach and ocean room for all of us. The tour guide knew the history well and made it interesting. The "Haitian village" was smaller than I expected but very interesting. We got to taste fresh made peanut butter, smell fresh ground coffee from beans grown right there and a yucca bread (more like a flat bread or tortilla) made over a fire. I teach history so the information was super relevant. I feel like I have a better understanding of the people on the island. Read Less

If this is the tour about Labadee's history & traditions, it was excellent. This little village & it's enthusiastic people are lovely ambassadors for Haiti. They scratch the surface of the essence of this amazing country.

This is a new tour and needs a lot of work. The history portion of the tour is excellent, but then a 4 part show is done. This show could be done in 10 minutes and not spread out as long or as boring. One other negative feature, the tour started at 11:30 and ended at 2, which means the beach bar b q was closed. I know, there is a lot of food on the ship, but it is fun to have the bar b q on the beach. I think in time this will be an interesting tour, just needs kinks worked out. Read Less

For anyone interested in the history of Labadee, this is the tour to take! It was called Traditional Labadee booked through RC. They fairy you over to the island and the history begins. To how they make their own concrete to build with, to native traditions such as curing through nature, the leaves and herbs used to cure many ailments. We were treated to rituals, music,dancing and refreshments made from fresh sugar cane and lemon. they even show you how they squeeze the juice out of the sugar cane to make the drink. There they make there own sculptures made by hand out of mahogony. Beautiful place, with an amazing history and wonderful friendly people. Our son was enthralled by it all and thanked me for booking this excursion so full of history and culture, a memory he will never forget. We highly recommend this one and the price was great, we even saved money when it went on one of their sales. Not to be missed! Read Less
