What You Can Expect

St Thomas Shore Excursion: Shopping, Sightseeing and Beach Tour

Shop in Charlotte Amalie!

When you disembark from your cruise ship, your energetic tour guide will welcome you with a warm smile and bring you to the heart of St Thomas at Charlotte Amalie. Hundreds of duty-free shops line the streets of Charlotte Amalie, and you’ll be free to browse and stock up on souvenirs. Depending on your selected departure time, you'll enjoy either 3-, 2- or 1-hour of shopping. Amble down Main Street and the waterfront to find unique local goods and great deals on jewelry, clothing and electronics. Try some local delicacies at a nearby restaurant before you head out on your safari taxi for some St Thomas sightseeing. Be ready to sing along to lively music as you make your way to your first destination.

At noon, meet up with the rest of the tour from the 2 other departure times to begin your adventure. First up is the summit of Mountain Top, at 1,547 feet (471 meters) above sea level. On the drive up, you’ll make various stops to capture the breathtaking views. Your guide will provide you with the history and culture of St Thomas, and at each stop, you’ll hear expert commentary of the key places of interest. You’ll get fantastic views overlooking Blackbeard’s Castle, a real pirate tower, and the surrounding isles of the US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands. From Mountain Top, you’ll see Magens Bay and its glorious beach, one of the top-rated in the world.

You can finish your shore excursion at the end of your sightseeing tour, or upgrade to include a trip to the St Thomas beach of your choice. Choose from Sapphire Beach, Magens Bay or Coki Point Beach, and spend the rest of your time in port swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving or simply relaxing on the smooth white sand.

Wow what a brilliant trip. Sonny was sitting waiting as we came off the ship and took us downtown for some shopping. He then took us on a tour of the island in his fun bus. He is very knowledgeable and informative but always did it in a fun way. If you want an easy trip and to see the island in a fun way then book this trip immediately. Thanks sonny we all had a brilliant time.

Great time distribution between the 3 activities.
Driver very helpful and friendly.
Roads crazy tight and dangerous therefore they play music and sing along for distraction.
Maegans bay beach is beautiful.

This was a very fun excursion, made so by our driver Elvis. I am not a big shopper, but I found a great little rooftop café to have a mimosa and a pastry while everyone else shopped. The tour of the island and the Mountaintop shop and banana daiquiri was also fun.
