Though Viator was very nearly a nightmare to work with and instructions for meeting up with our tour operator were minimal at best, our tour was fantastic and more than made up for the issues. Our guide, Wellington, was great and we had a very thorough tour of the island with just enough time at each of our stops.
Our tour guy was great. It was Will, very professional, very informative. I would recommend this tour. He called us the quiet group.
Our guide fats was very informative and made the tour very courteous. He was very patient!!!!! He is certainly a credit to your organization!!. GIVE HIM A RAISE!!
Great tour of the island with Eddie. He is very knowledgeable and entertaining and the air conditioning and free drinks in the van were great.
We loved our island tour of St Maarten. Our driver Miller was great! He took us to many things all over the island. We got to see iguanas on the side of the road, several beaches, shopping, Maho beach where the airplanes come in just to highlight a few things. there was plenty of beer, soft drinks, water and rum punch. We had a great time.
My family took this tour with Miller Man and it was out of this world. He was absolutely amazing, made special stops to show the kids sea urchins, and all sorts of neat creatures. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Miller Man to everyone!!
This was a tremendous tour! Sven was great and very knowledgeable. The equipment was top notch and the locations were great. There was high winds but Sven lead us through them and ensured we made it across in a timely manner. The snorkeling was also great. We saw almost every species of fish and also spent a lot of time with turtles. I would highly recommend this tour and Sven!!!
Loved this tour! We went to two beaches that were fantastic, we saw iguanas, went to the flea market. Had a great time!!!
Nice island experience. The governor was very knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor and was accommodating.
Unbelievable value! Great tour - lasts about 5 hours. Ask for Eddie Miller, terrific guide. We had three 45 minute stops at Oriente Beach, Marigot, and Maho beach to see the planes land. Also had several other pictures stops, a beach sea life stop, and a feed the iguanas stop they are everywhere on the island. We followed a strictly coastal route, unlike other tours. An added bonus was a complimentary cooler of rum punch, beer, soft drinks and water no limits. We even had time for a little shopping in Phillpsburg after the tour. Tour leaves later than most cruise excursions so if you get in early, take the water taxi to Phillipsburg. Easy to find, go to info desk at Cruise Center - someone in an orange shirt will take you to the van. Our tour had 10 and never felt slightly crowded.
This was a wonderful tour! It was thorough and we got to see all the highlights of St. Maarten. Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable. We loved the beaches - especially Maho Beach. This tour gave us the chance to experience everything. We were picked up right at the cruise port and dropped off in plenty of time to catch our ship.
Great tour, saw everything we wanted. Eddie our driver/guide was the best. Highly recommend
We very much enjoyed this tour. I felt like we had a good understanding of St. Martin and loved seeing both sides of the Island. Our tour guide was informative and very knowledgeable. We stopped many times and were able to shop, walk the beaches, and take pictures. I strongly recommend this tour!
This was a marvelous tour. We got to see both the French side and the Dutch side of St. Philipsburg and Oscar the Grouch , our tour guide, was great. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He kept us laughing all day long!
Brilliant tour. Our driver/ guide Ian was great fun and very informative and went the extra mile to give us a super tour. It was very efficiently run and great value. Many thanks. Charlotte Breese U.K.
We had the best day! ! The tour was amazing....
our tour guide was highly informative and very entertaining!!
Plenty of drinks for everyone!
We loved St. Maarten! It is a beautiful island. Our bus was really nice and air conditioned. We had Oscar as our tour guide. I had hoped we would get him, as I'd read great reviews raving about Oscar the grouch. He is funny and gives great information about the island. I highly recommend this tour! Be aware, there are several topless/nude beaches on the island. Even ones not designated as topless, they do not enforce. We stopped at Bikini Beach and did see a few topless women there. That was the only negative part of the tour for us. Otherwise, the beach and water was beautiful!
Wonderful and insightful tour guide, combined with the beauty of the island made this a remarkable trip.
We had 14 friends on the St Maarten Shore Excursion. It was great!! Our guide was friendly, knowlegable and it was a fun tour.
Our tour was well worth the money a great tour our guide and driver Eddy Miller was awesome We saw the whole island from top to bottom he was very knowledgable. Love it.
Very good tour, the driver was very knowledge and friendly, and show us the principal attractions of St Maarten, and they waited for us because our ship was late, I will recommend this tour and the provider.
