Tour Overview

Don't miss out on getting to know Paramaribo's downtown with five hours of exploration. With a knowledgeable local guide, discover what makes this city unique by visiting its top (and hidden) attractions such as Basilica Minor, the Presidential Palace, Central Market, Keizerstraat, Fort Zeelandia, and others.

Because Paramaribo is best explored on foot, you'll walk through its white-shaded streets with cloud-piercing roof-tops with your guide. The wooden Basilica Minor and Presidential Palace will transport you to its colonial past, where you will learn about their unique history and symmetrical building style. Then, at the Central Market, smell, touch, and taste the fascinating fruit, vegetables, herbs, and other goods.

Do you want to try some Surinamese cuisine? You won't be disappointed because these are also on display to delight your senses, and your guide is on hand to tell you all about them. Following that, a stroll down Keizerstraat reveals the Mosque and the Synagogue, which coexist peacefully, demonstrating Suriname's multicultural society. To round out the experience, learn how Fort Zeelandia is a historical event hub and other stories about the sites you visit.
