My experience was fantastic. The tour guide was very considerate and knowledgeable. The only negative comment was that I was unable to call before I got to Freeport, so my regular shuttle was not there to pick us up. We took another company bus and showed the driver our ticket, and he brought us to our tour shuttle. They were waiting for us. I highly recommend this tour.

We got off to a rough start when we left the ship to meet the driver to pick us up and were told by employees of the company who were there for another tour that we were supposed to be there at 8 but I was told 8:45 am on the phone the day before. They did remedy the issue quickly and we were picked up by a shuttle bus who took us to rendezvous with our group (they were still in the middle of picking up people from different hotels so we didn't miss anything). Our tour guide/drive was Snake and he was full of information about the island and places we were going. The gardens were beautiful and the tour there very interesting. We got dumped on by rain when we first arrived but that is obviously not in anyone's control. To those who are cruising, there are two options, a morning and an afternoon tour. The tour took longer than it said so I am glad we booked for the morning as we may not have made it back to the ship in time had we taken the afternoon tour. People on island time are not as concerned about timetables.

We took the one-day trip to and from Ft. Lauderdale and Freeport. I think it was worth it as we definitely got a good understanding of what was on the island if we wanted to go back and spend more time. On the Balearia ferry from Ft. Lauderdale, passengers can purchase a round-trip bus ticket to and from the city center once they are on the boat for something like $11 however this would not take us to the different places we were able to see on our viatour half-day excursion. We traveled during the off-season so we had the van and the driver all to ourselves and thus more liberty to spend as much or as little time as we wanted at the different stops. Our driver picked us up right at the port where our ferry came in, near where the cruise liners dock. There are also other options once passengers arrive at the port with cheap shuttles, etc., however they do not cover all the different places you can see with the viatour option. I enjoyed it and would recommend viatour to anyone on a day trip to Freeport.

I enjoyed my tour. The tour guide was very nice and informative. However, it is advertised that we were going to a Rum distillery and there isn't one on the island. This is false advetisement. In addition, going to the Shops - only 5 shops were open out of 65 - this should be changed to the Marketplace. There was no conch demonstration either - another false advetising. I did not feel that we got our money's worth out of this tour.

There honestly is not much to see on Freeport. The tour was good, but did not include the rum distillery, which is what we wanted to see.

I enjoyed the scenery as we picked up other people for our excursion but did not care for the places we stopped to shop. The one place had half or more of it's stores vacant and the other place was a flea market.

I looked forward to my Freeport tour. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to me, the day I was there for my tour was a holiday and all the business were closed. Had I known this I would have planned a trip to the beach. I feel like it was a wasted couple of hours in Freeport driving around looking at empty buildings. It would be wise to tell customers when they book a tour that it is a holiday and give them the option of going or not. I hope to some day get to Freeport so I can see what I missed last week.
