Enjoy the sun and sea on Grand Case Beach or Orient Beach, experience the food-loving ambiance in Grand Case, and stroll around the charming village of Marigot.

  • 4.5-hour tour of Dutch St Maarten and French St-Martin -- two sides of the island of St Martin

After pickup at your Philipsburg hotel via comfortable shuttle, head out to see both the French and Dutch sides of the island on this St Maarten sightseeing tour.

Learn about how both the Dutch and French settled the island in the 17th century, then joined forces against the Spanish conquistadors to protect their home and divided it equally between themselves. The French side is St-Martin and the Dutch side is St Maarten.

Stop at Grand Case Beach, a gorgeous stretch of white sand on St Martin's coastline. Stroll along the beach, bask in the sun, or wade and swim in the calm tropical water before a visit to the town of Grand Case. In town, try some of the guavaberry rum punch or purchase a lunch of Johnny Cakes or chicken legs, local specialties.

Travel to Marigot, a charming village with European ambiance. Stroll the streets lined with original colonial buildings and make a few duty-free purchases at the shops or the open bazaar.

Maho Beach is your last stop on the tour. Well-known for its proximity to Princess Juliana International Airport, this beach is an excellent place to watch jumbo jets taking off and landing.

Drive through beautiful Simpson Bay on the way back to your hotel in Philipsburg for drop-off after your international 4.5-hour sightseeing tour.

Great a good overview of the island both on the Dutch and French sides. Plenty of ice cold drinks on tap. Maho Beach is not to be missed. We visited in April 2018 and the island is still trying to recover from hurricane was very informative on this subject. The devastation is immense.

I really enjoyed this tour! Although, I went a couple weeks ago and seen a lot of damage from the hurricane but looks like they are rebuilding the island. I had Bert as my tour guide and was the only one on this Sunday tour. Bert was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowlegeable about the island and provided interesting facts. He took pictures for me at various stops. He offered refreshing drinks soda, water on the tour which was a nice treat! I highly recommend this tour with Bert as you will learn all about the island and it's history.

This island is a mess from the hurricane and it was an education to see it first hand. This tour bus with Amigo tours was lead by Burt and Claudia. They were very nice to us and really helped us to enjoy the island as there were a good variety of stops.

We had a great tour with Wellington! He was very helpful, catering the tour as he could to our interests and giving us lots of history of both sides of the island. It also helped that he spoke French and Spanish in addition to English. It was nice to have stops at beaches on both sides of the island too, and we had nice shopping in Marigot. We'd highly recommend this tour!!

This tour was wonderful! Our tour guide No Stress was very informative, fun, respectful, and made our tour extremely unforgettable! We are already planning our next cruise... I would only change the bus, if it was an open bus, the views would be a lot more enjoyable. This is our 3rd tour through Trip Advisor and we will definitely continue booking through here, because it has been unforgettable experiences. Very organized, fun and extroverted guides, and right on point locations with useful information.
