Great trip overall! Had a little difficulty at first contacting the local guides to set-up the pickup from our cruise ship, but once that was squared away, the rest of the trip was awesome. Got to visit two great beaches. Would definitely recommend this excursion!
Tour was excellent. My husband and I were treated very well. Enjoyed the historical knowledge our guide had not only St. Maarten, but also surrounding islands. Very relaxed and informal, blended in quite well with the island. At Orient Beach, If you are looking for a little solitude, but convenience of restroom and beach bartender, take a walk further down the beach to Coco resort. Maho beach is smaller and crowded, but crazy exciting with the planes flying directly over head as they land.
We had a blast! There was 12 family members on this trip our driver was Ricky he was outstanding. I highly recommend this tour! Thanks Ricky!!! and thanks for the rum punch that put me too bed early that day.
Really enjoyed seeing the sights, especially Maho beach and the urchins by the ocean.
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.
I enjoyed my tour guy however I wish my crowd was different. Would definitely recommend for large groups rather than couples.
This trip was overly inclusive to the extent that it turned into a whole day excursion. Caused me to loose a second excursion in the afternoon.
Difficult to actually get a hold of the operator of the tour till we never actually made it I was looking for something related to just seeing the airplanes take off rather than that and a beach stuff also it would be nice if the operator of the tour would make available the schedule prior to going on a tour
