We really enjoyed this tour. Elvis, our guide, was excellent. He made us laugh and was really knowledge about the island and its history. We highly recommend this tour.
Our was awesome!! Our tour guide was the best; besides giving us an insight on St. Thomas, he had music on, made us sing and laugh the whole time! We were first dropped off for an hour to shop in all these pretty little stores which are quite close to each other. After that, we stopped in some places to have a glance at an amazing view of St. Thomas. Last but not least, we were taken to the beautiful Sapphire beach and had two hours to spend there.I highly recommend this tour (and the Banana Daiquiri, and the Rum Punch in Sapphire Beach )
Good interesting tour with Elvis.
This tour began at the pier with 8 people. When we returned to the bus after spending 1 hour in town shopping, the tour guide had rounded up 8 more people filling up the open air bus. My husband and I were the first ones on the bus and had chosen a seat in the back ( the same seats we had started the tour with) so we could feel a breeze and I could easily take pictures. After the new people appeared we were asked to go to the front of the bus so the others could sit together in the back. I expressed that we did not want to sit in the front, but he told us that the others wanted to sit together so we needed to move. After moving to the front we were directly behind the cab of the bus so we got very little breeze coming in and it was extremely hot. Two papers were posted on the back of the window so my husband could not see anything in front of him. There were bars on the open window beside me (these were only on this row of seats) so I was unable to take pictures as I had planned. When we arrived at the beach, we were only given 30 minutes. We did not mind this, but several of the others were looking forward to the hour and a half at the beach.
The tour was wonderful and our tour guide, Michael was personable, funny, and knowledgeable. I definitely would recommend the tour. The only problem I had is that it was slightly over crowded which made it just a little uncomfortable because it was hot but other than that it was perfect and if visiting St. Thomas again I would not mind doing the tour again especially for the banana daiquiri.
Doing what: St. Thomas Island Tour and Shopping

Doing what: St. Thomas Island Tour and Shopping
This was an excellent excursion in a newer open-air Ford pickup truck that is converted to hold about 18 passengers (these are the most common form of transportation of tourist on the island-- you see them everywhere). We got to learn the history and see the sights of pretty much the entire island of St. Thomas. Our driver Elvis was very knowledgably and made the trip fun by adding music and singing songs. We took several short stops of 5-10 minutes each, a stop of 45 minutes at Mountain Top, and a two hour stop at Sapphire Beach, which was less crowed, more scenic, more coral, and no extra admission cost than the more famous Magens Beach (Elvis let us do a bus vote on which beach to visit-- Sapphire won unanimously). The excursion lasted a bit over six hours total. Since we had about 9 hours in this port, this tour and beach experience made for a perfect day in St. Thomas!
Elvis is great! He knows well about the island, history and the beautiful places we need to see. I highly recommend him to everybody. Your experience in St Thomas will be perfect with him. Thanks Elvis! You were great indeed.
I would highly recommend Viator. We used Viator for two excursions and Carnival for one. We enjoyed the excursions with Viator much more than the Carnival excursion in St. Marteen. I liked the option of choosing the amount of time for shopping on this excursion. Magens Bay was beautiful. It is worth the $4 admission fee.
Our driver was helpful and informative
This was lots of fun. We shopped for 2 hours, which went very fast. Then we did a bit of sightseeing as we drove to Mountaintop, which had beautiful views. Had a yummy banana daiquiri at the wonderful gift shop (wish we had more time there) and then went to BEAUTIFUL Meagan's beach. Great day. LOVED Elvis our guide.
We had a great time - laughed the whole time - our driver was really made our trip fun - as we pasted by other buses you could tell they wished they were on our bus. Loved our driver!!!
Our shore excursion on St, Thomas went pretty well. It was unfortunate that the day we were there, a Carnival was being celebrated which produced a lot of traffic, parades, and various streets being closed. Because of this there was some confusion at the start of our shore experience as to what the plan was for our trip. But we finally got underway in a fine open air vehicle and eliminated the shopping part which was okay with us.
We were met at the port by Angela everything was in order and went smoothly. First up was shopping in downtown St Thomas. She took us to the down town area parked and then told us we didn't have time to shop but I guess we had time to sit on the bus for the next thirty plus minutes to wait on another group. The tour was nice, I got great photos. We had a choice of two beaches to be dropped off at. I wish she would have given us information about the beaches so we could have maybe made a better choice. We were dropped off at around 1:30 and picked back up at 3:30. We would have like to have left earlier but no choice but to wait until pick up time. We eventually hired a taxi to take us downtown shopping before the stores closed. Over all of for the price it was worth doing. Time management to get everthing in was an adjustment.
