Our tour guide Paul was great! A local who had first hand knowledge of the devastation from the recent Hurricanes that hit the island. Heartbreaking to see and hear of what they have gone through. He was very informative though. Great tour.

Great tour of St. Maarten. Exactly as advertised. Perfect for seeing the whole island in a short period of time. Plenty of time for souvenier shopping and having something to eat. Would absolutely recommend it.

Great guide and tour. Were able to go to both sides. Would rather have more time at Maho beach and less time in Marigot or Philipsburg. Maho beach was the most fun. Ate lobster in Marigot and was ok but nothing special at Rosemary's. Would take a pass on that.

The tour was exactly as described. There were only 4 of us and the driver Roland gave us an experience we will never forget. We learned the history of the two nations and more. We loved the planes over Mahoney beach, the pastries at Sarahfinas apple tart is a must! Bring cash they don't take cards. and shopping in Philipsburg. Roland walked us a short distance into the heart of the town and gave us a time to meet back. We explored Philipsburg stopping at the Guavaberry Emporium where we sampled and bought this local liquor. We really got the flavor of this beautiful island thanx to this tour. We highly recommend this!

My ship came in later than the rest of the ships so the Diederick and his wife took my husband and myself on a private tour. We had such a great time. They showed us everything on the island. This is highly recommended.

Diederick SXM Tours did a great job of showing us both the Dutch and French sides of St Martin. Our driver Roland Lake took good care of us and made sure we had a full island experience.

We had a tour with tour guide Paul and he was very knowledgeable about the whole history of the island and he took us to local points of interest that gave a really good overview of the entire island. We were able to shop and eat among the locals which we really enjoyed. We would highly recommend this tour.

St. Maarten was our first port of call. We booked this trip because of the excellent value and all that it had to feature--- by far and wide better than any selection on our trip! When we arrived the manager was there to greet us. After waiting just a few short minutes, our driver Duce arrived. My friend and I were the only two to book this excursion... we had the day and the van to ourselves! Duce was very knowledgeable about the areas and the history. He took us to all the landmarks promised and then some! He was an awesome sport taking the camera and snapping pictures. Memories we will treasure. Since it was just the two of us, we were able to direct how much time we wanted in each spot. For us, less on beaches and more time shopping. Duce took us to the approved shopping area, where he guided us to all the shops we had wanted to go. This was an awesome tour, given by an even awesomer gentleman. This was a hard act to follow trip excursion wise. If you are on the fence about this tour- DO IT! You won't regret it. Kudos to Viator for putting such an incredible, fun filled, history rich trip together and kuddos to the best tour guide Duce for making our first trip St. Maarten memorable.
