Excellent!! Sunny Liston make it all worth while with his entretaining music and history of the island....You could see other tour vehicles go bye, and they envy our enthusiasm, and overall party mood. If there was something I did not care about, was Saphire beach....not a great beach to go to, lots of sea plants all over.
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 was the perfect way to see St Thomas when we had a relatively short amount of time. We selected the beach option, and I'm so glad I did - the water was crystal clear and warm - just what you expect in the Caribbean! The views from the mountaintop were spectacular and our guide was the best!
What a great way to see the island in a short period of time. The only drawbacks were the delay in leaving the cruise port and the speaker system in the tour bus. Our driver wanted to fill up every seat so we waited about 15-20 mins while he solicited passerbys. The tour operator, Sunny, had the volume very loud on the radio and he spoke too loud over the P.A. System. Aside from that, Sunny was extremely nice and very accommodating to everyone on the tour. We paid the $4 fee to go to Magens Bay beach. The beach was one of the most beautiful beaches I have visited.
This tour was a great way to accomplish everything we wanted to see and do in St. Thomas. Elvis, our guide, made it so much more fun than expected, singing and telling us great stories and history of the island. Getting the whole tour bus involved was a great way to connect with our fellow tour travellers. Don't go if you don't want fun!!!!!!!! Sunday, ooh ooh, Monday ooh ooh ......(Rock the boat), every day of the week!!
Elvis was awesome! I wish we could have spent more time at the mountain top place and I was very dissapointed when we did not go to Magens Beach as the vote was for a different beach and then discovered we were the only 2 that stayed at the beach upon pick up.
We had a wonderful time with Sunny! We had 6 of us in this tour, 2 of which used wheelchairs. Sunny's vehicle really isn't made to transport wheelchairs but we made the best of it. He took us to beautiful places and had us all singing and laughing in his bus. We booked our trip prior to leaving the US and paid approx. $35-40 pp. When some couples got on at the ship, they paid $30 ea. :(
Very good guide. Funny and entertaining. Nice views of the island. Beach portion was excellent (Sapphire Beach) good choice.
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.
Our shore excursion on St, Thomas went pretty well. It was unfortunate that the day we were there, a Carnival was being celebrated which produced a lot of traffic, parades, and various streets being closed. Because of this there was some confusion at the start of our shore experience as to what the plan was for our trip. But we finally got underway in a fine open air vehicle and eliminated the shopping part which was okay with us.
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.
