It was good and the ladies and gentlemen running the tour was phenomenal. I do think they should limit teams to 5 people. We had 8/9 so it was a bit much. But I would recommend it because you get to see more of the area.
Our family of four had an amazing time with this excursion. Not only was the event planned out and fun but we made an error on the day that we were to arrive in Phillipsburg and they still accommodated our family with no problem at all.
Our family of five wife and I with our three kids 13, 10, and 9 enjoy watching the TV show and this race is similar and LOTS OF FUN! It is similar to the real TV race in both the good and bad ways... many fun clue stops, can get lost even with help from the locals and required a nice range of activities. Staff explained things well, and were at various spots along the way to aide and help if lost. We saw many part of the city, and if in port on a cruise ship you will still finish with plenty of time for other activities thereafter. On our race day it was pretty warm, and the staff had water to give before starting, and a drink and snack at the end of the race. Tip - most of the race teams booked through the cruise line, but if you book directly with Tri-Sport or with Viator rates may be better it was for our family. Best excursion on our Easter Caribbean cruise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RACE!!!!!!!
This was a lot of fun!! We did it with two other adult couples and found it to be challenging enough for adults without being too difficult for the kids. The crew does a great job of keeping up with everyone and they are always there to help you along the way. PS You may want to brush up on your Caribbean islands.
This tour was a lot of fun! Very well organized and challenging and the staff were very friendly and personable! The only thing is that I believe the point system needs to be tweaked a bit. But hey, it was great fun and winning isn't everything.
We all had a great time on the adventure race walking tour. There was a good mix of challenges and the total time of the race was just about perfect. Although we discovered that we would not make for a great team in The Amazing Race television show, we still had a ton of fun!
