5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Hands down one of the best excursions I've ever been on! We had the Mailman as our tour guide and he was FANTASTIC. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area. Answered any and all questions. Made pit stops along the way for pictures, etc. Had beverages on board for everybody and had a selection beer, soda, water, etc. Could not have asked for a better experience. If you're even remotely thinking about taking this tour - don't hesitate - just book it! I promise it'll be worth it!

Our tour guide, the mailman was great, very informative, funny, tour well worth the money. Be careful of the drinks at orient beach! Very tasty,potent, they sneak up on you. Would do this again, minus the drinks, I slept thru the tail end of tour!!!

David was our driver and he was very knowledgeable about not only the island but also the history behind it too. Went to two different beaches as well as a couple stops in between.

This trip was good but maybe a little long at least for little kids. The island itself is a bit boring with not a lot to see. I dont think next time I would take a tour here. This maybe a good ship day. However the tour itself was great. We got off the ship and easily found the meeting place. We then got into a nice van with DJ our driver and tour guild. There was only one other family with us so a total of 11 plus DJ. There were sodas and rum punch available. We stopped at a few locations for pictures. We then came to a beautiful place with huge waves and giant boulders. A local gentleman there has a little table set out with sea urchins, sea stars and the like that you can hold. Yes, they are alive. He also was very knowledgeable about them. We then went to the best part of the day, a place with no kidding like 300 iguanas. DJ helped the kids feed them. Note the iguana farm has closed down but this was very entertaining. We then went to a beach which was nice but the waves were pretty hard and the wind was strong. Lovely though. We got lunch in Marigot but being it was a Sunday and raining there were not many vendors in the market. The service was slow and the food was ok. We then headed back to the ship. DJ was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the island. I think this is a good trip for perhaps families with older kids as it is a long day in a vehicle. DJ and the company however were great.

The Mailman was an excellent tour guide. He changed the order of stops so that we could watch the 747 land at the airport. He was informative, funny, and considerate . Saw both sides of the island.

We really enjoyed our tour of St Maarten with the Mailman! He is very nice and knowledgeable of the country. His rum punch tastes really good, too. Since we were on a cruise, our time in St Maarten was short but we were able to do a lot of different things with this tour. I highly recommend doing this tour. Please note that to get to the tour bus, you need to walk further out of the dockyard to find the white tent. It took us sometime to figure out where to find it. Luckily the Mailman waited for us.
