Beautiful tour, very very nice.
I recommed it to all!
Guide was knowledgeable, personable, and flexible. Vehicle was clean. What more could I ask?
Our driver, Bert, was great! Very knowledgable about the island, supplied water,pop,beer,and rum punch the whole time. Both beaches were great. Maho beach is something you must experience when in st maarten. Will definetly use Viator again.
Tour was GREAT! Driver was wonderful. We booked this without even hearing of Viator before and kept our fingers crossed. We left our cruise ship and found our guide "Oscar" and boarded our mini bus...very nice. Orient beach was beautiful..$10 charge for a chair,worth it!....Maho beach is definitly something
to see ...watching the airplanes come in was very cool. Not good if traveling with wheel chairs or canes/walkers....too crowded. My parents were with us (Dad with Cane) and watched the planes come in from the resort "Bliss" right next door to the bar......very great place ...nobody there and still a great view!
This is a great tour for anyone who has not been to St Maarten before. It is a great opportunity to visit to of the most popular beaches on the island. Our driver, Oscar was a lot of fun and gave us a lot of good information about the island. He got us back to the ship in time to do some shopping as well.
The tour was awesome. Beaches were beautiful. Oscar was an amazing tour guide. Full of information and so much fun!!! Loved him. Loved the tour! Blast
Our tour guide, Burt, was great! Very informative and knowledgeable about the island. The van was very clean and having drinks available was a nice touch and much appreciated. The first beach (Bikini Beach) was beautiful and there was a lot of fun playing in the waves for both kids and adults. Two things to be aware of: first - this is a topless beach or top optional. I wish I would have known this so I could have prepared my 8 and 12 year old boys that they would be seeing half naked women. The second thing is that it costs $10 per lounge chair. This would have been okay if we were staying all day but we only stayed 2 hours so that seemed like a lot. The second beach (Maho Beach or Airport Beach) was also beautiful but was VERY crowded. We were lucky to see a huge 757 land which was awesome but a little freaky at the same time! Again, had to pay for lounge chairs. Definitely worth going to at least once for the experience though as we all had a great time and got amazing video and pics!
Great tour! Thank you Bert! We had a comfortable minibus ride to two great beaches - Orient beach was quiet and beautiful, Maho beach was noisy and exciting. Our guide gave us a great introduction to the island along the way and made sure we were well supplied with soda, water or beer. Pick up and drop off went without a hitch. Loved this tour - would definitely recommend.
Tour was nice. Finding the guide was a little difficult as he was not wearing any uniform or sign referenceing the local tour company. We had to ask around at the pier to find the representative. Once we found him it was nice. We were guided to both beaches and given a bunch of history about the island as we toured around. Maho beach was absolutely awesome although very crowded especially as the afternoon large planes were coming. Orient was beautiful although the beach had tons of venders pestering you constantly trying to sell goods or services. Some of them were quite harassing which did become annoying after awhile. I would recommend this tour however definitely be aware that there are many vendors that will be constantly bugging you at Orient Beach.
The tour was fine. However, there was a mix up with the guide and locating him was difficult. Once we found our guide we had to wait about 1 1/2 hours for others on our tour. The tour guide said that the other ship (Carnival was not on island time) . Our ship (Celebrity) was on Island time. This delay is not acceptable. We were waiting and waiting and waiting. You need to have better coordination when booking.
The tour people were great. Very easy to meet up with after we debarked the cruise ship. I did not realize this was more of a tour rather than getting us to the beach. We really wanted at least an hour at both beaches however we got only half hour at Orient beach because we had to run to Maho to catch the big airplane coming in. We had more time at Maho but beach was crowded. We did have a nice lunch and tour guide was available to leave when we wanted.
Oscar our guide, was great. Super friendly, great stories and made the drive along some busy traffic fun.
Unfortunately we lost over an hour of the tour. Being a first time cruiser, I had no idea there could be time differences between ship and local island times. When I booked and said I was coming off a ship, I wish the Viator agent would have given me a heads up this might happen so I could be aware. We were sitting in our rooms waiting the whole time we were actually an hour late.
When we got off the ship and went to the area to meet our guide - no idea who was Viator, no comp... We walked around looking for a booth, or a store, or a sign and saw nothing. We went back to the info booth, and Oscar was standing there letting us know we were late, but the extra 10 minutes was because we had no idea where to find him.
There was another 8-10 people we waited for (in the bus now) and finally said let’s go… guaranteed they didn’t know time difference either. So our tour ended up leaving the port 1.5 hours late
Again - once the tour started, no complaints at all about Oscar. He was great

Even though it rained for part if this tour, it didn't change the fact that this was a great way to cover these two beaches, I would go on this again, and our tour guide was great--and very respectful and helpful to the elderly in our trip. Loved seeing those planes so low!
Good tour. We chose this one mainly to go yo maho beach to watch the planes land and take off. Driver was informative and flexible as our entire group wanted to shorten orient beach stop and head to maho. Cold beer, soda and water provided.
Tour operator waiting for our arrival, excellent guide Oscar, Our family of eleven had a wonderful day, will recommend VIATOR to our friends
