Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Best St Thomas Shore Excursion: Shopping, Sightseeing and Beach Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
There are lots of tours you can take but the only one worth taking is Sunny Liston Tours. We were picked up at the port in an open air taxi, the only way to travel by Sunny Liston himself. He has other buses but HE"S THE BEST. We started out shopping at the beautiful shops of St Thomas, and after an hour half shopping whisked away for some sightseeing and headed to the top of St. Thomas to the famous Banana Daiquiri spot which held the most gorgeous views of St. Thomas. Make sure you get a Daiquiri then a bit shopping, then off we went for more sightseeing, all the while music playing lots of singing and laughs. We passed other tours that definetly were not having as much fun as us. The off to the beach, you can choose from 3 beaches we paid for the one beach WELL worth it then after 2.5 hours we headed back all the way around St. Thomas to our ship. We had the BEST time with Sunny and if you book with him tell hi you want to be with him!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!! Cant wait to go back to see him again!
We had the best tour guide! He was funny, fun and made us happy from the get go! Great music, great info, great tour sites and lovely people! We had a blast and the other tour buses looked sad when they saw how much fun we were having! Recommend this highly!
This tour was WELL worth the money!!! Beautiful sights and a FUN tour guide! Sonny is awesome!!!
Our trip was excellent, we enjoyed sight seeing, beach and shopping. D.J. was our driver/tour guide. He was very professional, made very good introduction of the culture and facts for St. Thomas. The tour lasted more than 5 hours, all four of my family loved this trip, well beyond our expectation. Thank you D.J.!
Loved the info on St Thomas government and elections as well as the view from the highest point. Very nice driver and guide
Overall we had a GREAT time.
Sunny Bradshaw had the bus rocking.
We made the mistake of selecting Saphire beach, there were renovations going on and the jack hammers made a lot of noise. Much prefer Meaghans Bay.
I would certainly recommend this to anyone I know going to St. Thomas in the future
Our Excursion was awesome, worth the money. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip most interesting and enjoyable.
Sunny Liston was our guide and he did a great job. He is energetic so be ready for that type of tour.
Overall the tour was good. Shopping and food is quite expensive. Magen's Bay or Coqui Beach was a choice. Magen's Bay was $4 to get into and $7 for a chair but the beach is nice vs Coqui was free but was located in a poverty stricken area but some of the tourist said that they still enjoyed it.
Sonny Liston tours are excellent. Sonny knows exactly where to take you for the best views on the island. He makes the tour fun with Caribbean music and sing alongs. If you don't want to have fun on a tour with music and singing, then don't take it. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone.
Sunny Liston Tours was amazing. He was very punctual and very easy to find. He has a great knowledge of the island and also great facts. We did the shopping beach and island tour. The only thing that was disappointing was the beach. Megans Bay was very crowded but that wasn't his fault. This is great tour fot JWs traveling in the area.
It was very enjoyable and fun. The only concern that I have that since this was not a Cruise ship sponsored excursion, the cruise line could care less to help us. I didn't know at the time that Sunny Liston tours was my tour guide and our tour was to start at 9 am and he got there around 9:05. So you can image that we were concerned being in a foreign country (probably delayed due to traffic). But he did show and the fun begin. I had a family of 6 from ages 3 to 24 with me. Sunny was great. We had 2 hours of downtown shopping, 2 hours at the beach and rest was tours of the island. Sunny was rocking and playing carribean music and we all were singing all the way up and down the mountain. So hold on!!. it is a open bus with music playing and everyone singing. We had fun!. For the beaches, he gave you 3 choices of Beaches, Megan Bay, Sapphire Beach, and Coco Beach. I recommend the public beaches which are Sapphire and Coco which are free and you could do more there instead of Megan Bay. I went to Sapphire which is beautiful and had more coral. Coco Beach may have more Sand. I would recommend them and it was a very good experience for my family if you want to shop, see, and relax on the island. But on the trip with Sunny, hold on while jamming!
This was a great tour. I would highly recommend Sonny Liston tours. The views from MountainTop were beautiful. We ended with a trip to Sapphire beach - definitely a great choice. Sonny made it all a lot of fun with the lively music and his singing, as well as being very informative.
We had a wonderful time. The guide was great. He told us so much about the island and was very helpful. The only thing is that I would have liked to have seen the town of Case as it said instead of Orient Beach.
You can't go pass St. Thomas without taking an excursion with Sunny Liston. Highly recommendable, very knowledgeable tour guide.
The Tour operator - Sunny Liston - what a great time we had - Sunny made this tour a great experience -
We sang, laughed, were educated about the island and took us to a beautiful beach called sapphire beach -
The sand was white and the views amazing. Every time we came along side another tour bus all their eyes were on us and you could see they were wishing they were on our tour. We would definitely choose Sunny Liston Tours again and recommend our friends and family . A GREAT DAY - THANK YOU AGAIN SUNNY!!!!!
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 )
We took Sunny Tours and our driver known as Sunny was amazing. Very full of life and plenty of island jokes. He informed you of all the sights and the history behind them. He is not afraid to grab your camera and take family photos for you like most tour guides! This excursion was very worth taking!
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.
