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.
The tour was very good. The couple we went with also enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was very good, engaged the group, and offered lots of information. The stop at the airport was really interesting.
It's a good combination to see the island, do some shopping and enjoy the beaches. Had a great time!
The driver and van was wonderful. Friendly and accommodating. I would recommend him and viator again. He recommended a lunch spot and it was great. He had a cooler of rum punch, beer, waters and soda's that was great.
Excellent! David was very courteous and professional. My wife and I had a great experience touring and sightseeing St. Maarten. I recommend this tour highly.
Our tour guide "Oscar the Grouch" was great. Well worth the time and money spent.Entertaining and amusing as well as informative.
Oscar (the friendly grouch) was our driver and tour guide for the day in St. Martin/Maarten. He was waiting in the lot when we got off the ship. He was very informative and fun! The guavaberry rum punch and cold drinks were great! He even made sure we made it to see a 747 at Maho Beach! Awesome
