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.

We visited St. Maarten in May as part of a cruise tour was excellent. Our driver Paul was so well informed His knowledge of the island was very impressive. The scenery was beautiful and the market we went to was fun. I would recommend this tour especially if Paul was the guide.

Great tour of Saint Maarten. Douce was our tour guide. He made our day in Saint Maarten very fun and informative. He knows a lot about the island and where to take people for a special day of touring. He is also a safe driver important to a mom when loading her kids into a tour van. It was easy to meet up right off the cruise ship close to the ship pier. Thank you!!

DEUCE YOU ROCK - Had the best experience on this tour that lasted over 6 hours. visited both sides of St Martin. Learned a lot, enjoyed the yummy food. DE UCE literally did all the work, wouldn't let us open the van door even. He was a pleasure to hang around. Thank you Deuce and we haven't forgotten to get you a Tim Duncan jersey! Hugs- Amanda and Jonathan from San Antonio-

Diederick was our tour guide and he was wonderful. We toured both sides of the island and learned a lot about both sides. Diederick is a local who is very knowledgeable and showed us many wonderful places. We learned about the cuisine, foliage, history and much more. As two older women, we felt very safe and would definitely contact Diederick again if we find ourselves back in St. Maarten. We saw much more than the tours the cruise ship offered in a comfortable van.

This was the best tour of our holiday. We were taken around the Island by Paul who was really informative and helpful. He tailored the tour specifically for us and our friends . Paul was a real character and great to talk with. We saw most of the island both Dutch and French , visited a hill fort and my friend achieved his aim of snorkelling in the Caribbean Sea! Go with this and ask for Paul!! Nigel and Sandra

Our excursion was the Best tour we ever had. Deuce was our driver and tour guide. He had exceptional knowledge of St. Maarten history. He was accommodating to our questions and what we wanted to see. Deuce was courteous and made sure we were comfortable and safe getting in and out of the vehicle. When in St. Maarten take his tour. I will look to Viator to book all of my tours from now on!

Very happy to recommend this tour. Diederick from SXM tours was our driver, we met him as per the trip instructions in the EDC car park at the port - but you need to go left to the tour buses when you reach the car park to find the buses and drivers as they're away from where all the other tours meet their passengers. We had a fun and informative trip around both sides of the Island - have to say I prefer the Dutch side lol. We went to the beach and watched the planes come in over our heads, and visited several other places of historical interest with time to shop too. We found the trip to be very good value for money and had a great time with Diederick.

Our driver Ronald was great. Saw the Dutch and French sides of the island. He showed us some amazing views. The stop where we got to feed iguanas was unexpected but a great experience. Loved our time at Orient Beach. It was what we imagined a Caribbean beach to be. The bar had swings for seats. Didn't realise we had to pay to sit on the sun lounges on the beach this is common in the Caribbean and found the local traders on the beach a little pushy. They offered foot massages, hair beading and souvenirs. Not very cheap either. Stopped for lunch at a restaurant that was quite slow and left us 10 minutes to look through the large market. Bit disappointing. Ronald was great but we were a little late back to the ship as he was a bit laid back and drove a little slower then we would have liked. Apart from the lack of shopping time, the tour showed off this beautiful island.

This was a very informative tour. Rained on the French side but cleared on the Dutch side. Driver was interested in our safety and was courteous. Planes over Mahoney bay were incredible. Well worth the money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and recommend this tour! Would have liked a little more time in Marigot and not as much at Maho Beach. We got to see both sides of the island and still had plenty of time to make it to the cruise ship. Deuce was a great guide.
