We really enjoyed this tour. Elvis, our guide, was excellent. He made us laugh and was really knowledge about the island and its history. We highly recommend this tour.
Our was awesome!! Our tour guide was the best; besides giving us an insight on St. Thomas, he had music on, made us sing and laugh the whole time! We were first dropped off for an hour to shop in all these pretty little stores which are quite close to each other. After that, we stopped in some places to have a glance at an amazing view of St. Thomas. Last but not least, we were taken to the beautiful Sapphire beach and had two hours to spend there.I highly recommend this tour (and the Banana Daiquiri, and the Rum Punch in Sapphire Beach )
This was an excellent excursion in a newer open-air Ford pickup truck that is converted to hold about 18 passengers (these are the most common form of transportation of tourist on the island-- you see them everywhere). We got to learn the history and see the sights of pretty much the entire island of St. Thomas. Our driver Elvis was very knowledgably and made the trip fun by adding music and singing songs. We took several short stops of 5-10 minutes each, a stop of 45 minutes at Mountain Top, and a two hour stop at Sapphire Beach, which was less crowed, more scenic, more coral, and no extra admission cost than the more famous Magens Beach (Elvis let us do a bus vote on which beach to visit-- Sapphire won unanimously). The excursion lasted a bit over six hours total. Since we had about 9 hours in this port, this tour and beach experience made for a perfect day in St. Thomas!
We had a great time - laughed the whole time - our driver was really made our trip fun - as we pasted by other buses you could tell they wished they were on our bus. Loved our driver!!!
This was lots of fun. We shopped for 2 hours, which went very fast. Then we did a bit of sightseeing as we drove to Mountaintop, which had beautiful views. Had a yummy banana daiquiri at the wonderful gift shop (wish we had more time there) and then went to BEAUTIFUL Meagan's beach. Great day. LOVED Elvis our guide.
I would highly recommend Viator. We used Viator for two excursions and Carnival for one. We enjoyed the excursions with Viator much more than the Carnival excursion in St. Marteen. I liked the option of choosing the amount of time for shopping on this excursion. Magens Bay was beautiful. It is worth the $4 admission fee.
Elvis is great! He knows well about the island, history and the beautiful places we need to see. I highly recommend him to everybody. Your experience in St Thomas will be perfect with him. Thanks Elvis! You were great indeed.
The tour group that hosted our tour was called Sunny Liston. Our driver was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and made the trip a lot of fun. He sang and had us singing. We had to hang on because at times it felt like we were on an amusement park ride. We definitely got our money's worth. The only suggestion I would have would be if you are not into jewelry shopping, shorten the trip a little. All we found for shopping in St. Thomas were jewelry stores. We spent our shopping time sitting in the park waiting for the island part of the tour to begin. I was hesitant to book with Viator never having heard of them, but I would book with them again. It was definitely worth the money and it was a blast!
Sunny was our guide, he was friendly, informative and fun! Loved the music on the bus, he got everyone pumped up!
'Sunny Liston' made our tour group the envy of all the other tours. He had us singing along with him and as we passed other tours they would check us out and see the fun we were having.
Sunny was great provides very detail information and entertain you on the trip.
Our driver was very nice and funny! He had the bus pumping with his music and singing. He encouraged everyone to join in the singing. He was very informative and shared lots of information about the island. I enjoyed being able to get off of the bus and walk around and see the different shops on my own.
Excellent day, knowledgeable driver and beautiful scenery. Highly recommend this tour.
