Description:

Various Tours are available in Roseau, that give you the opportunity to learn about its history and architecture.

Self-Guided Walking Tour

For a walking tour of the historic district of Roseau, Dominica's capital city, you can purchase a self-guided map-leaflet at The Fort Young Hotel for $4 USD or hire a guide for $15 USD.

Founded and named by French settlers in the early 1700s, the city we know today is based mainly on the grid layout planned and built by the British in 1768 though some remnants of the 'French quarter' still remain.

At times destroyed by fires, flood and hurricanes, there still remain many fine examples of Victorian architecture with a Creole flavour, and this short tour lets you experience this side of Roseau.
