This is very useful and confortable tour. Thank you! But when the guide stops for a time for lunch in the parking at Marigot (at own expences) I strongly recommend ignore most restaurants there (the cuisine if not so good there). For better experience you can walk to the nearest streets and fing there restaurants with better quality of cuisine.
We met our tour guide Bert as we exited the pier. He quickly escorted us to his van and began his tour with our group. As we were visiting the sights of the island, he also gave us a history that went along with it. Whenever we had a special request or if he thought there was a sight or a place where we could take a great photo opportunity, he would oblige us with his smiley face and pleasant accent. The van was very comfortable, air conditioned and full of cold drinks. One of our request was to go to Maho Beach to watch the airplanes and he made sure we were there when the largest 747 were due to arrive. He was a very nice guy, great personality, full of knowledge and having him as our tour guide made our excursion seamless.
The tour surpassed my expectation. Our tour guide Will did an excellent job. He went extra miles in making sure he shows all the main attractions on the island. He allowed us ample time at each stop -- I did not feel rushed at all. This tour is highly recommended and make sure you ask for Will.
The tour was very informative, gave us time to take pictures, use the restroom, do some shopping and get something to eat. I enjoyed the tour very much and would recommend anyone to do this. It gives you an overview of the whole island.
We had Bert as our Guide. He was great and don't think we would of been able to enjoy St Maarten as much if it were not for Bert Thanks again Bert
Awesome tour, Bert was wonderful! It was jsut the 5 of us so he catered to what we wanted. He was very infomative, knowledgeable and really showed us so much of both the Dutch and French side. I would recommend this tour if you have never been there and want t experience both sides.
Our family would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The three of us including our 31/2 yr old loved the tour of st Maarten/Martin with out tour guide Bert. He was extremely knowledgable about his home and his pride in it was very evident. It was nice to ask questions that he had no problem answering. We did the walk up the 180 something stairs to the top of Fort Louis and it was well worth the hike up. The view is spectacular. Take a couple bottles of water which are provided and go on up! We also really enjoyed Maho Beach and were pleasantly surprised that there was a surf board in the sand with plane arrival times. That made it so easy to be camera ready for a 747 landing. This tour made us want to return to St Maarten for a longer time next trip. Thanks again to Bert!
My wife and I enjoyed the tour. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and took us to sights that that we read about and were looking forward to visit. I highly recommend you.
Excellent, thoroughly well organised and great tour guide. Would definitely recommend.
This was a great overview of the island; we got to spend time at 3 amazing beaches and learned so much history of the island. Our tour guide was fantastic. It made me want to come back and spend more time in St Maarten/St Martin!!
It was a wonderful day, our guide/driver Bert was informative and well organized giving us a complete tour and swim time at several stops to experience the Atlantic and Caribbean sea. The stocked cooler of rum punch, water and coke was perfect. My grandchildren were with me 9 and 7 had a great time and also enjoyed all the information about the island. It was well paced and a real value for the money. We saw the french and dutch side of the island experiencing both cultures.
