We loved our tour private with Jose. He was very knowledgeable about the island. We stopped in St Maarten as part of a cruise. My kids loved hearing his stories and as a result want to go back on vacation to the island. Great experience!

I have travelled to St Maarten many times before but my travelling companion hadn’t - hence the trip.The tour gave an excellent view of the island taking in both the Dutch and French sides. The guide was excellent sharing personal stories giving us an insight into island life as well as taking us to two stand out beaches. When we had to get back to the cruise ship He adjusted the trip leaving all five travellers with a taste of the island.

We had the BEST time with Jose! He was so much fun and gave us lots of information as we went around the island. The places we visited were pretty cool and I would do it all over again!

Very highly reccomended! Josie is from Houston TX though clearly loves the island and will exceed your expectations. He is talkative no doubt. If you want a quiter narrative then perhaps this is not your fancy. If you want a jovial, informative, knowledgeable, and caring host then he is your man!

Jose provided the best experience we could have asked for. On St. Maarten. He has great knowledge about the island and his dynamic personality was an extra plus. Our children 13 and 8 years old also had a blast. Give Jose a chance, you won’t be disappointed.

This was the greatest day. We were on a cruise ship travelling with my 85 year old mother and a handicapped brother-in-law. We did not want to spend the day on a bus with 50 other people doing a canned tour. We had some limitations within our group and wanted to be able to customize our day. We were supposed to be on a 4 hour tour but our driver said I am yours for the day. He took total control of my brother-in law helping him in and out of the car, getting his walker, taking him the restroom...everything that needed to be done, he did. He took us to places not normally on a tour and gave us many options that filled our day. My mother was so happy because she normally doesn't get off the ship. Our driver, Big Cadi, is a 10. I would highly recommend this company and I would definitely request Big Cadi. His mama raised him right!

A Great tour! Only issue we had was excursion start time, the voucher we printed listed start time as coincides with cruise ship arrival, our cruise ship arrived at 7:00 am, however, the tour didn't start until 9:00 am, so we waited around a bit. The tour was lead by Jose, he apologized for the miscommunication on start time and made our experience on the island well worth the wait! It was our first time at St. Maarten, and Jose didn't hold anything back, we were lucky to be the only ones in his van, so it was like having a private tour. Jose hit it off right away with our 16 year old son, who rode shotgun in the van, they got along great and according to our son, this tour was the best of all the islands we stopped at. Jose is very knowledgeable and has a great personality, he truly wanted to make sure we had an awesome experience.

Jose was great! We went all over the island and got a lot of history and info from Jose. Jose never left any of the sites we visited and was very flexible to work with.

Jose was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. He left a engineering job in Texas to move to the island for a happier life. My only complaint would be that our departure time said corresponds with the docking of the ship. We were off the ship at 8:30ish, but didn't leave in the van until 10:30ish. I would have preferred an actual departure time, so as not to waste ours, waiting for Jose's arrival.
