A motorcoach takes you to this seaside promenade, home to many of the city’s most esteemed structures and memorials. Visit the historic Fort Cornwallis, one of the largest and best-preserved forts, for a photo stop. Explore George Town’s preserved colonial area dating back to the 19th century and sample the wares from local food hawkers and street vendors. Then it’s on to the 200-year-old Suffolk House, a significant colonial landmark and architectural gem. Travel through time at Francis Light Cemetery, which honors the town’s founder, followed by a look at the charming Weld Quay Clan Jetties at the waterfront. This water-village is raised on stilts and accessible by a long walkway. At the completion of the day, you’ll head back to port.
