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.
Sunny Liston Tours are the best. St. Thomas is gorgeous and our tour guide made exploring the island even more fun. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We had the most wonderful day tour with our tour bus driver Wellington who was brilliant. He is a really funny guy who kept us well informed about the places we visited. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We felt quite confident in his driving and his knowledge of the island. The highlight of the day was visiting two beaches the last one being Maho beach. Unfortunately we only had around 45 minutes at this beach but we got to see large planes landing and taking off.
I thought we had booked the two beach tour but this was just as interesting. Hey ho we would not have met Wellington! He is the man!
As with the other tours we prebooked through Viator, the local rep and guide/driver were where they were supposed to be when they were and the whole experience was a joy. what was in the itinery was what you got plus the good humour and willingness of the driver to help and please the clients. Always going to prebook my trips with Viatour prior to travelling in the future.
Wellington is the best tour guide we've ever had!!! He was very informative and very friendly.
The tour was well organized, informative and most importantly, it was lots of fun! Out guide kept everyone engaged and we had plenty of time at each stop.
Wellington was an absolutely wonderful guide! His rum punch was tasty too! We came to the island as a stop on a cruise week. Of the 5 ports we visited this Saint Maarten excursion was our most favorite!
This tour was perfect! Our guide was very informative and knew a lot about the history of the island. We were on a nice air-conditioned bus, and had only 6 of us on our tour. The highlight was Maho beach! We were there for an hour and saw 3-4 planes take off and about 7-8 planes come in. Amazing!!
One of the best tour guide/driver we ever had. Wellington was very funny, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. He made our off shore trip enjoyable with his jokes and at the same time giving us history of St Martin. Been in St Martin before and Wellington made it more enjoyable. The tour is highly recommended and that goes for Wellington also!
Otis was truly an amazing and knowledgeable tour director, thanks!
Brilliant tour with Wellington he was great fun. All aspects of the tour filled our expectations.
This tour was fantastic as was Wellington. I have recommended this tour to our relatives that will be visiting St. Maarten in July.
We met our guide easily from the cruise ship dock. We were loaded onto an open air bus with 6 other couples and offered a cool drink while we waited. After a few brief photo stops our first main stop was the Grand Case Beach were we were left around lunch time for around an hour. We then boarded a larger bus with more passengers and moved onto St-Martin with a few photo stops along the way. The drivers were informative, entertaining and more than willing to answer questions. We then traveled to Maho beach for some awesome photo opportunities and then back to the cruise ship with plenty of time to spare. We were offered guavaberry punch yum! and all the cold drinks we wanted along the way.
First time to St Maarten and we hit the jackpot in tour leaders. Wellington was AWESOME! From the first time we met him he was cracking jokes and the fun never stopped. He knows so much about both sides of the island and is very well versed in the history and culture. He also speaks around 6 languages - he is just that great! He made the trip for me and my 3 children the highlight of the stop. At each stop he would say if someone was doing something we didn't like to just let him know and he would take care of it. We had no problems but it was nice to know he would help us navigate the culture if needed. I would look him up for our next tour.
Driver/Tour guide did an excellent job. We never felt rushed and feel this was a great tour and a great value
What a wonderful day and a beautiful island! Wellington was our tour guide and was amazing! A great sense of humor and fun to be around. Orient Beach not the nude side was beautiful. Maho Beach, well, yes, that was an experience seeing the planes coming in right over our heads. Shopping at the markets, lovely views everywhere. Just a great day!
Very friendly, enthusiastic, funny, considerate tour guide. Made our children feel welcome and engaged. Shared the right amount of history and current affairs. The bus was clean and comfortable. We had a great experience.
Our guide Wellington was amazing!!!! We had the best time very informative and a wonderful host. We will go back and use this tour. A must tour for anyone going to St Maarten!
Great tour of the island and the guide was fun, excellent narrative on sights along the way. Will highly recommend this tour.
Very good tour guide. Top notch tour for a lot less than what the cruise ship will charge.
Great drive around the island with narrative on sights and local color along the way, particularly the differences between the French and Dutch sides of the island. Our guide was fun, relaxed, and a joy to spend the tour with.
We had a great tour in St. Maarten. Really enjoyed our driver and the sights. There were 6 ships in port on the 4th so traffic was pretty hectic going back to the ship. However we have been on many tours over the years and this one ranks high on the list!
