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.
great trip!driving too fast for the terrain,otherwise very enjoyable for everybody!
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.
It was a GREAT trip. Elvis the driver was informative and entertaining and always on time
Lots of fun. Only complaint is the speaker system was too loud in the van, and we had to plug our ears through some of the singing. Also, some of the words of the songs were adult-rated and offensive. There was a child on board.
We were met at the port by Angela everything was in order and went smoothly. First up was shopping in downtown St Thomas. She took us to the down town area parked and then told us we didn't have time to shop but I guess we had time to sit on the bus for the next thirty plus minutes to wait on another group. The tour was nice, I got great photos. We had a choice of two beaches to be dropped off at. I wish she would have given us information about the beaches so we could have maybe made a better choice. We were dropped off at around 1:30 and picked back up at 3:30. We would have like to have left earlier but no choice but to wait until pick up time. We eventually hired a taxi to take us downtown shopping before the stores closed. Over all of for the price it was worth doing. Time management to get everthing in was an adjustment.
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.
The tour was suppose to leave at 9:00. This would give us 2.5 to three hours in town shopping. Instead because the tour was late showing up and could not locate part of the group, we did not leave until almost 10:00 and only had 45 min to an hour in town. We returned to the ship earlier then expected. 1:00 instead of 2:30. Compared to our guide on st maartin, this tour guide offered very little information about the island.
Maybe a 2.5 star rating.
