Paramaribo city tour

sur02-paramaribo-free-im

Take a guided tour of one of South America's most unique capitals, where Dutch architecture meets diverse cultural influences.

More than half of Suriname's tiny population resides in the coastal capital, which nevertheless has a pleasant, small-town feel. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is characterised by balconied wooden mansions and Dutch churches, while the culture and cuisine is an intriguing fusion of indigenous South American, European, African and Asian elements.

On this tour of Paramaribo's main sights and attractions you'll visit the Palm Gardens, the waterfront and the lively market, as well as the recently renovated Presidential Palace and the city's mosque and synagogue, which harmoniously cohabit side by side.
