Knowledgeable and personable guide. Nice overview of the history of the island. Vehicle was a bit cramped.

The Cruise ship was late, But our tour guide waited for us. He was very nice and polite. Took us around the whole island telling us about the history. I do recommend this tour

The tour was fantastic. Our guide , David Botha, was so knowledgeable and very pleasant. He even brought us a snack that was home made. He was seagrape tours through Viator Tours. It could not have been better. We highly recommended it.

Picked up on time. We were the only ones, 4 of us, so felt like a private tour. Got taken to interesting spots and was given lots of interesting facts. Tea/coffee and cake were included and toilet stop along the way. It did rain at one stage and we were given rain ponchos. Really enjoyed this tour:)

The tour was very well done, very informative, and Iliya was very knowledgeable. All passengers were picked up at their respective locations, yet no time was lost or wasted. Not only was this tour a good historical overview of St Maarten/St Martin, it was also a good orientation of the island. For those individuals spending several days on the island, recommend taking this tour as soon as possible after your arrival. It will help tremendously.

We had a great experience on our tour. We were picked up on time, and our guide provided a lot of interesting information about the history of the island. We never felt rushed and she allowed us to take as many photos as we wanted. She also provided a snack and regularly offered us water if we needed it. One regret is that we did not get to take a photo of the statues depicting the salt trade that were in the center of town. I am thinking it may have been because the statues are in the middle of a traffic circle which would make it tricky to stop and take a photo. We would definitely recommend this tour. It may be best to plan it for the beginning of the week because there were less cruise boats so that our stops were not as crowded.
