My husband and I recently booked this tour on our cruise to the Caribbean. We had a great time with Sunny and he truly made this a great experience! He gave great commentary about the island and stopped to let us take many great pictures along the entire tour. As mentioned in other reviews, the Banana Daiquiri's are amazing! We chose Sapphire Beach and were not disappointed! The beach was not crowded and the water was beautiful! We rented snorkeling gear and saw a sting ray among other beautiful fish. There is also a small food stand to get a good lunch (burgers $10, fish sandwich $14). I would recommend wearing your swim suit on the tour if you're going to the beach as the restrooms were extremely hot. Overall we were extremely pleased with booking this tour and would highly recommend it.

this tour was very flexible. you could be dropped at the beach of your choice and stay as long as you wanted. carnival was in town so we didnt do downtown shopping. the mountain top souvenier shop is the cheapeast. St.Thomas was very crowded so traffic was heavy. Tour did not include beach fare.

This trip was fun, noisy and exhilarating. Being dropped off and collected at the beach was a good way of ending the tour.

Enjoyed the tour although the weather could have been kinder!! That put a bit of a damper on the day as we couldn't do the beach, the shopping part was very good and could have done with more time there, the sight seeing was nice and we had a good time just wish it hadn't rained, the beach we were taken to had no real facilities except for scuba diving!! Had there been a restaurant and shops or something to entertain us until the rain stopped it would have been better.

We had fun on the tour. Have to admit that the rocking back and forth of the bus got nauseating....but great otherwise

Great way to see the island. Saw some great little beaches a little off the beaten path.

We were a small group but the tour was just what we wanted. Time enough for downtown shopping, then travelling up through the island to various look-out points and finally the beach. The length of the tour was just right - about 3.5 hrs and we got a good feel for the island.

First the driver was late and we had to wait in light rain and uncertainty...
However, Elvis was a good tour guide and we enjoyed the tour once we got going.

Maybe my misunderstanding, but we didn't think we'll be part of a larger group. The "shopping" part was mandatory and consisted of the drive dropping us at town for a couple of hours with a pickup time. Tour was good (not the weather). We were met by company rep who dumped us on another company's driver. That was the last we saw of him or his company. Overall a good way to see the island, but can get same by talking to any taxi driver near the ship or in downtown.
