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 )
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!
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.
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 guide Cat was great and took care of us well as we were the only couple on the tour. Kayaking was short but adventurous as the winds were strong that day. The island has a lot of historical interest and the climb to the top is great for views. A small but interesting reef awaited us at a secluded beach...the snorkeling was wonderful.
Loved the combination of activities. Very close to town.
Sonny was our tour guide, driver, and Disc Jockey.... Greatest fun was had. The tour ran on time for all segments; shopping in Charlotte Amalie; then given our choice of beaches. We choose Magen's beach and it was beautiful, not crowded. Sonny was very informative and shared his island knowledge. Thanks Viator
Had a blast! Was very entertaining and made it so much fun. We sang through out the trip, went to great scenic sites. Didn't have as much time at the beach as we wanted, not because of our guide but because of a very inconsiderate woman who took her time shopping at the gift shop, please be courteous to everyone on the tour. Sapphire beach was great we saw a few iguanas.
Excellent!! Sunny Liston make it all worth while with his entretaining music and history of the island....You could see other tour vehicles go bye, and they envy our enthusiasm, and overall party mood. If there was something I did not care about, was Saphire beach....not a great beach to go to, lots of sea plants all over.
This was the perfect way to see St Thomas when we had a relatively short amount of time. We selected the beach option, and I'm so glad I did - the water was crystal clear and warm - just what you expect in the Caribbean! The views from the mountaintop were spectacular and our guide was the best!
My husband and I recently booked this tour on our cruise to the Caribbean. We had a great time with Sunny and he truly made this a great experience! He gave great commentary about the island and stopped to let us take many great pictures along the entire tour. As mentioned in other reviews, the Banana Daiquiri's are amazing! We chose Sapphire Beach and were not disappointed! The beach was not crowded and the water was beautiful! We rented snorkeling gear and saw a sting ray among other beautiful fish. There is also a small food stand to get a good lunch (burgers $10, fish sandwich $14). I would recommend wearing your swim suit on the tour if you're going to the beach as the restrooms were extremely hot. Overall we were extremely pleased with booking this tour and would highly recommend it.
this tour was very flexible. you could be dropped at the beach of your choice and stay as long as you wanted. carnival was in town so we didnt do downtown shopping. the mountain top souvenier shop is the cheapeast. St.Thomas was very crowded so traffic was heavy. Tour did not include beach fare.
Enjoyed the tour although the weather could have been kinder!! That put a bit of a damper on the day as we couldn't do the beach, the shopping part was very good and could have done with more time there, the sight seeing was nice and we had a good time just wish it hadn't rained, the beach we were taken to had no real facilities except for scuba diving!! Had there been a restaurant and shops or something to entertain us until the rain stopped it would have been better.
This trip was fun, noisy and exhilarating. Being dropped off and collected at the beach was a good way of ending the tour.
Great way to see the island. Saw some great little beaches a little off the beaten path.
We were a small group but the tour was just what we wanted. Time enough for downtown shopping, then travelling up through the island to various look-out points and finally the beach. The length of the tour was just right - about 3.5 hrs and we got a good feel for the island.
