We had so much fun, Orient Beach was clean and beautiful, also Maho Beach and Airport were thrilling.

This was a perfect tour, we all loved Orient Beach and Maho Beach not only had those exciting planes but also a very cool bar to hang out and listen to music if you needed to get out of the sun for a bit.
Loved it!

The tour was great! The staff was nice and friendly. Beware it is difficult to find the departure location. We were scheduled to leave at 9 am. The biggest frustration was that we arrived by 8:45 am as communicated only to wait until 10:00 am for three very late people.

We visited both beaches. We were there for 2 hours so it gave us plenty of time to do what we wanted. The tour was exactly as described on the website, there were no surprises. Our driver Anthony was excellent and very knowledgeable when answering any questions we had about the island. At orient beach we rented beach chairs for a discounted fee of only 5 a chair. The driver also genorously offered us refreshments on the bus ride between the beaches and the port. We were driven back to the port with plenty of time left to visit some local shops before boarding. The tour was well organized and I highly recommend it.

The tour and stays at the beaches were relaxing and fun. The food was excellent. In addition, the trip to the airport to watch the planes fly right over our heads was awesome. I did not experience the thrill of being blown around by the airplanes when they took off. But, my husband and our friends did and I am glad they survived.

Our guide, Anthony was great. Gave us the low down on the island during the ride. Loved Orient Beach, very peaceful and the kids had a blast on the banana boat ride. I could have stayed here all day. Maho beach was pretty cool. The food and drinks at the restaurant were super expensive though. The water was awesome and of course it was cool watching the planes come in. My wife was very nervous before going to Maho but Anthony told us to stay away from the fence and out of the way directly behind the runway as planes were taking off.....This ended up being my wife's favorite day of our vacation!! One last thing.....RUM PUNCH!!!!!

We had a brilliant tour. We had free refreshments given. Our driver was very knowledgeable with the history of the island. We did struggle to hear sometimes due to very rude loud Americans who would not shut up and talking over him. The beach stop was lovely and the maho stop was our favourite as we have always wanted to do this. Would recommend to anyone, good value for money.

We had the best day in St. Maarten! This tour is a must! Bert was our guide and not only is he really funny, he also is extremely knowledgeable about the history of this island. We learned a lot from him and it was so interesting and entertaining. He provided a cooler with free water, soft drinks, beer, and Rum punch--it was delicious! The restaurant and bar that is sitting there on Maho Beach has really good drinks and the food is fantastic. It is anywhere from 10-17 a plate, but it really is delicious-you won't be disappointed. Next time, we would like to visit the french capital there and get some pastries : Great little island with a rich history. Beautiful beaches and water. Best day ever! Book this tour!

This tour I have to say was brilliant. It was seamlessly arranged and on time. The bus driver/tour guide/local comedian (Burt) was hilarious and ensured that all of the day was interesting and a good laugh. The destinations were as described and it was great fun to see the planes flying in.

Bus was clean and safe. This is a super windy beach so be prepared. Beautiful and so worth the trip.

The tent location was confusing, however with a simple stop at the information desk at the end of the pier, we were at our meeting location within 5 minutes. We were told to follow the taxi signs and stay to the left curve side...when we did...we immediately saw the white tent in the back parking lot. Amigo Tours was excellent - a slow start waiting for those who notoriously arrive late but once we started to roll...no complaints. You are to meet @ 8:45a and they leave with or without you at 9:05a...good policy for those who arrive early, not late!! The driver was kind, informative and professional. Having an open cooler policy was a nice touch - there was ample water, beer and exceptional rum punch. At Orient Beach, our 2 hr. stay was at an upscale beach bar and for 5pp we had two loungers and an umbrella on the 3rd row of the beach...worked for us! On Maho Beach we found a picnic table at the Sunset Bar and enjoyed the planes overhead, along with a tasty pizza and drink. 2 hrs. was plenty of time to see the big planes come in. Music was awesome too! We all met at the designated time to return to the ship, with the exception of one couple. The driver made an honest attempt to find them but after 15 minutes we supported his decision to get the rest of us back to the ship in ample time. Amigo Tours made it an enjoyable, convenient and relaxing day in St. Maarten. I might add, the nice/clean short bus was roomy and comfortable, as well!!!

This tour was fantastic! My favorite excursion of all my cruise. Finding the initial location of the bus right off the cruise was a little confusing and a task itself, but once we found it, the trip was phenomenal. Our tour guide was excellent. Gave great information about his island, while adding a bit of comedy for entertainment. Orient Beach is beautiful. While part of the beach is nude part of the resort nearby, you are dropped off at the area that is not well more tame. But Maho Beach... is INSANE! in the most wonderful way. When I first heard of watching planes, it didn't sound enthralling. But this literally is the coolest thing - just do it. The beach was very crowded, as well as the restaurants on the beach, but there's plenty of room in the water, which is where we just swam, relaxed and plane-watched. You will make all your friends jealous. Overall, I highly recommend this tour. You basically see the entire island throughout and with two beautiful beaches to visit, it's a great time!

My sister and I loved this tour. We watched the planes come in and were able to rent a beach chair, after we walked up and down the beach, and just kick back and enjoy the show. We didn't stand up when the planes when came in, and I'm glad as the people who did told us it was like getting sand blasted. Overall a good way to spend a morning in port.

It was raining when we arrived in port, however we still decided to take the tour. The meeting place was easy to find and the staff was very welcoming. Our driver was very accomodating as there were only 6 of us, which was great. We went swimming at Orient Beach in the rain then boarded the van and went to Maho. Amazing. We had plenty of time to watch the planes. Highly recommend this tour. We found out that people paid way too much for the same or less on the ship.

Great excursion. Spent 2 hours on each beach and enjoyed every minute. Food and restrooms available on each. Saw numerous topless sun bathers on Orient beach but none on Maho beach. Only downside was the traffic on the island. Driving to and from the beaches was very slow.

we really enjoyed this! our tour guide was Bert. Orient Beach had free wifi for our use, and you got a chair for just 5. not crowded at all. by the time it started to fill in, we were off to Maho.

saw some great planes, and we were there for the take off of the American Airlines flight. my other half was on the fence for the jet blast and loved it!

you had 2 hours total at each beach, and you drove the entire circumference of the island so you got to see alot. I highly recommend the guacamole at Sunset Bar maho beach. Dee-lish!
