What You Can Expect
Following pickup at your North Island hotel, board a comfortable vehicle and set off on the island's west coast road toward Soufriere.
As you drive, watch the tropical island scenery out the windows: charming fishing villages, leafy tropical vegetation and coconut and banana plantations.
Upon arrival in Soufriere, admire the island's most famous landmark, the majestic Pitons, looming above. These twin peaks, named a World Heritage Site, are both over 2,000 feet (700 meters) tall and were formed by volcanic activity.
Stop at the world's only drive-in volcano to see the Sulphur Springs bubbling up from the ground. Visit one of St Lucia's many spectacular waterfalls before moving on to Morne Coubrail, a working plantation. At the 19th-century plantation house, munch on fresh local fruit and enjoy a tropical drink. Walk along the plantation's trails to see the farming and harvesting work in action.
At the conclusion of your 5.5-hour excursion in St Lucia, enjoy drop-off back at the cruise port.

This was an amazing trip with Samuel. It turned into a private tour but we didn't miss anything out. The sights were incredible and Samuels knowledge 2nd to none .
Wonderful tour of the island. The stop at the plantation was informative and the drive to the Pitons and the volcano was interesting.
Our tour guide had an encyclopedic knowledge of his home, of which he is obviously very proud. We stopped at a roadside stand to sample some of their delicious bananas, picked right off the tree, and learned it's their biggest export. The volcano and mud baths were very interesting, but for sheer beauty, the stop at the botanical gardens is a must do. Spend a few extra bucks and enjoy a dip in the same geothermally heated pools of water that Napoleon's empress, Josephine used. The local vendors are very aggressive, but generally polite. St Lucia is mountainous, so if you get car sick, be prepared for a drive with lots of switchback roads. However, those same roads offer some spectacular views.
Excellent private, air-conditioned tour of St. Lucia with a very knowledgeable professional local guide. Great overview of the main tourist attractions on the island. Our favorite stop was the Morne Coubaril plantation; we saw the traditional methods for cocoa production, coconut processing and some gorgeous flora and fauna.
Loved all of it! My favorite part was getting to sample the local food items and getting hands on with some of the produce... Stop for a loaf of locally baked bread, the flour, the cocoa plantation, etc. the scenery was stunning. Would definitely recommend this tour
This was a great tour with an even greater guide.
excellent guide. very friendly
Kim was a great tour guild we had a great time with him and Sammy the driver they both have a very good knowledge of the island they made it funny I would book with Viator again for sure
What an amazing job.... Superb experience and service!
There was a delay( about 20 minutes) in the driver picking us up from the port but once he got going ther was no stopping him. He was very informtive and stopped alot so we could take pictures and show us local fruit and things. There was only 4 of us on the tour so it felt very personalized for us. The tour was supposed to last 4.5 hours and i think it was closer to almost 6. It was great, I would definately recommend this tour.
