Melanius the Mailman was great! We had an awesome time touring the island with a great mix of fun in the sand and sun, history of the island and shopping. Would definitely recommend to friends!

This tour was amazing! Our guide DJ did a great job teaching us about the island while showing us the sights. He took us to a local restaurant where the food was delicious. He treated us like celebrities. We were relaxed and comfortable the entire time.

This was an excellent tour, covering both the Dutch and French sides. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and learned a great deal.

My husband and two adult daughters enjoyed this tour very much. The tour guide, the Mailman, was excellent and provided information and history of the island the entire time we were driving. He allowed us to have several photo stops along the way, including an opportunity to hold/pet iguanas by the roadside a gentleman had a slew of them ready for us to photograph and allowed volunteers to hold one - my daughter took advantage of that. The beach stop was very comfortable though we did have to pay an additional fee 20for two chairs and an umbrella. My printout said chairs were included but I didn't pursue that. We were a little disappointed that we did not see a plane take off at the last beach stop but we did see one land and were entertained by the spectacle of everyone gathering to experience being blown away by the jet exhaust. The Mailman had plenty of ice cold water, beer Caribe- very good local beer and rum punch. As much as you would want! Overall, the tour was a very good value for the money and we all highly recommend it!

We had read reviews about this tour prior to booking and were so very happy to have gotten The Mailman as our tour guide! Everything good thing everyone before us said about him was true! He was absolutely fabulous! He was so informative and knowledgeable about the island, and took us to the perfect spots for photos and fun! The bus was comfortable and air conditioned, he was easy to hear, and answered everyone's questions. His refreshments were perfect for everyone. We highly recommend this tour, and if you're lucky, you will get The Mailman as your tour guide, too!!

Our guide was named The Mailman, and he was fantastic. He was funny, insightful, and gave us a ton of interesting facts about the island. He had a cooler full of drinks for us and even had his own homemade rum punch. After the tour, he drove us to a building where we could get our passports stamped. Go on this tour and ask for The Mailman.

When our cruise ship arrived in St. Maarten, my wife and I were met by Gerard, who greeted us with a friendly smile. Gerard was the perfect tour guide. He took us around the island to visit both the Dutch and French sides, stopping at scenic overlooks and historic locations for pictures. He even honored our photo requests along the route, which were not on his planned itinerary. The tour was made even more interesting by Gerard's historical and cultural references, enriched by his anecdotes and willingness to answer my many questions. Should you decide to visit St. Maarten, be sure to book with VIATOR Tours and ask for Gerard if you are looking for a wonderful tour with a friendly and informative tour guide.

Our guide was Sexy...his nametag said so. He was gracious, he had lots of information about the two countries, he provided stops to view Iguanas, a great restaurant stop at your own cost, two beach stops and he answered many questions we had alongthe way. the van/buses are a bit worn but do not let that put you off this tour. A great way to learn about the island.

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!

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.

We have been on a 10 day carribean tour of 5 islands and this tour was the best of them all. I would recomend Bernard tours to anyone and the 747 taking off from the beach was the highlight.

We had previously done a cruise tour of St. Maarten, and Viator's tour was significantly better, a smaller number of people, and all for a lower cost. Our driver/guide -- DJ -- was entertaining while still informative, and certainly added to our complete satisfaction with Viator.
