Explore The Ancient County
CRUISING THROUGH THE DEMERARA
HISTORY OF NEW AMSTERDAM
Depart from the capital city of Georgetown early morning for a packed day in the ancient county of Berbice. The journey takes you on a three hour drive along the coast of Demerara heading East. Journey through many villages that were bought by slaves after emancipation in 1838, especially Rosignol Town and market. From here, continue to the historic town of New Amsterdam where you can experience the rich colonial stories the town has to offer.
From New Amsterdam, continue travelling East along the Corentyne coast to Moleson Creek; this is Guyana-Suriname border ferry crossing. Turn around from here and make your way to the 63 Beach, Skeldon Sugar Estate and Skeldon Market. For more information, please contact Rainforest Tours.
