Wellington was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable of St. Marten. We toured many places throughout the island. Wellington was very friendly and interesting. Our tour was enjoyable and we never felt rushed.

Our tour guide was Wellington, he was incredible. The tour had only a few people so it was like getting a personalized tour. The island is beautiful but it was so sad to see all the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma. I would recommend this trip to anyone going to St Maarten.

Our Tour Guide Wellington first name was wonderful. Told us much about the history and really showed us around the Island. Being a native there one could tell how proud he is about his home. The tour was set up flawlessly and easy to get to. We went over our time. The beaches were lovely. I would do it again with this company.

Outstanding tour of the island. We visited the island via cruise ship on 24 August 2017 and really enjoyed our visit. I was reluctant at first to book the tour through viator and amigo tours but I did it anyway and was not disappointed. The cruise line changed our itinerary at the last minute having us come in a day later. The folks at viator took care of rebooking the tour and everything went off as planned. I can't say enough about these folks and the tour. You got to see both the French and Dutch side, complimentary drinks, knowledgeable guide and a medium size tour bus that was not crammed with people. We had lunch at Rosemary's, visited with some locals feeding iguanas,
and of course checked out the beaches. Maho being the best with the planes landing. Don't book your tour with the cruise line, you've already spent enough on them. Give these folks a shot and you won't be disappointed. Over the Top customer Service.

This was a perfect way to spend the day getting all the local knowledge of the island. We had a great time seeing both sides of the island and loved the market on the French side and lunch at an outdoor cafe.

We loved this tour! St Maarten was our favorite island on our cruise. Daniel, our tour guide, was extremely informative and added some humor which was great! We loved every stop! We took some beautiful pictures, ate some delicious BBQ and drank the best fruit smoothies in Marigot, enjoyed beach time and loved experiencing airplanes flying right over our heads at Maho Beach!!! Simply amazing and indescribable!!! This island had it all and is just gorgeous! Enjoyed the uniqueness of both the Dutch and French sides. Loved the guavaberry rum punch. Purchased some to make at home! Enjoyed complimentary drinks throughout the tour which was nice! Arrived back at the port with enough time to enjoy some Belgian chocolate and do a little shopping. We highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed!!

Antony was our guide. He did a great job and was very informative. My favorite part of the day was Maho Beach, but it was all great!

Great comprehensive tour of the whole island and Bert, our bus drive/tour guide, made it fun and interesting! It was great to experience both the Dutch and French sides of the island, including the world famous Maho beach where the airplanes fly directly over when landing. During the tour stops, they supplied cold bottled water, sodas, beer and a local rum punch that was delicious and refreshing! Highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I were on an 8 day Carnival Cruise and have always booked all our excursions through the cruiseline. We decided to try Viator because it was recommended by an acquaintance. We were not disappointed!! The check-in was very smooth and organized. Our tour guide, Dudley, was exceptional!!! He was very knowledgeable about St. Maarten and was very helpful! One of the best sightseeing tours we've been on!! We will definitely be booking through Viator again!!! Thanks for a memorable experience!!

An excellent tour, with no rushing and in a small bus, so was able to get to lots of out of the way areas. Friendly, fun driver, who was very knowledgeable and passionate about the island. Lots of opportunities to take pictures, especially at the beautiful beaches and with a stop at Maho Beach for drinks and lunch, or disco if you want it. Great views of the planes landing directly over the beach. Arrived back at the port with lots of time to spare.

We were very pleased with our tour, our guide Bert was wonderful. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island. I was surprised at the amounts of sites we managed to hit during the tour, more than I expected. The stop at Orient Beach was nice, and Maho Beach was my favorite. We weren't sure at first where Amigo Tours would be located at the port, but a quick stop at the port information desk led us to their location. Also, a nice air-conditioned bus for a very comfortable ride. The rum punch was tasty!

Wellington gave us a fantastic day! I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised with how much fun we had and what a great day it turned out to be. He has a great sense of humour and all of our stops along the way on this beautiful island made for memorable experience. Would highly recommend!

Wellington was truly the best tour guide, I will definitely use Viator the next time we're on a cruise that stops in St Maarten. It was so nice to be on a smaller bus instead of the large buses the cruise line uses.

This was one of the best tours my husband and I have ever taken. The tour guide, Wellington, was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and funny. This was a 4 1/2 hour tour that included many sites on both the Dutch and French side of the island, including a visit to Maho Beach where we watched the planes land at the airport. The tour also included water and soft drinks as well as rum punch with many refills. The price was extremely reasonable and much less than 2-hour tours offered from the cruise ship.

We had some concerns prior to the tour because we discovered that our ship was not changing the clocks to St. Maarten time, and the ship was actually arriving at exactly the same time the tour was set to begin. We contacted Viator, and they arranged for the tour company to wait for cruise passengers to get off the ship. The tour company employees were very friendly and accommodating.

We would highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful excursion with Amigo Tours in St. Maarten. Would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see all of the sights on the island. Great tour guide, comfortable van, drinks served, just enough time sightseeing at various stops. If cruising, this is a great way to get the general lay of the land and to see a good deal of the island.

Outstanding tour - thanks to our tour guide Wellington. His first day on the job claim caught some by surprise, but by the end of the tour everyone knew this well experienced native of St. Maarten was on top of his game. His knowledge of the history and recent activities on the island provided great insight for everyone viewing the local landmarks. Great experience.

Wellington was our driver. He was excellent. Knew the places inside and out. He kept us on our toes by throwing in some facts that were silly. This promoted communication among the group of passengers plus with him. It was a fun excursion, nice to get to know the area, other people and Wellington. I would highly recommend this tour group and if you get Wellington it will be even better.

We had a great trip. We chose to book our tour online rather than use the cruise ship excursions. Worked about great. Less expensive and a terrific tour of the island, both sides. At the end we were at Maho Beach and got to watch several major airlines planes come in right overhead. Our driver was informative, entertaining and easily understood. His knowledge of the island was exceptional and his passion for it was obvious. Would strongly recommend Viator Tours. BTW, this was our first time going on excursions not set up by the cruise. This is how we will do it from now on....

What a wonderful person Wellington is. So friendly, professional, helpful, knowledgeable. We had a lovely day, never stopped smiling.

When we returned to our ship our fellow travellers were quite amazed by how much we had seen and done. We experienced so much.

We would certainly recommend Viatours and will be booking again at other destinations rather than using the ships trips.

We got a great tour of the city and the countryside. It is a twisty ride to the top, but fully worth the ride. Our driver was good, felt safe. The views were spectacular and fun photo opportunities. Returning to the city, we had a nice visit at the museum. Be prepared to walk a bit. There was a street market in town. We always felt safe as the driver stayed nearby. Be aware, if you self-tour the church, locals will be looking for tip money, it was worth it to hear about the church history.
