St-Martin and St Maarten: Sightseeing Tour of the French and Dutch Sides of the Island

Watch planes fly overhead at Maho Beach!

After pickup at your Philipsburg hotel via comfortable shuttle, head out to see both the French and Dutch sides of the island on this St Maarten sightseeing tour.

Learn about how both the Dutch and French settled the island in the 17th century, then joined forces against the Spanish conquistadors to protect their home and divided it equally between themselves. The French side is St-Martin and the Dutch side is St Maarten.

Stop at Grand Case Beach, a gorgeous stretch of white sand on St Martin's coastline. Stroll along the beach, bask in the sun, or wade and swim in the calm tropical water before a visit to the town of Grand Case. In town, try some of the guavaberry rum punch or purchase a lunch of Johnny Cakes or chicken legs, local specialties.

Travel to Marigot, a charming village with European ambiance. Stroll the streets lined with original colonial buildings and make a few duty-free purchases at the shops or the open bazaar.

Maho Beach is your last stop on the tour. Well-known for its proximity to Princess Juliana International Airport, this beach is an excellent place to watch jumbo jets taking off and landing.

Drive through beautiful Simpson Bay on the way back to your hotel in Philipsburg for drop-off after your international 4.5-hour sightseeing tour.

The tour company sent a car to pick us up and returned us to our resort after the tour ended. That extra service was greatly appreciated! The tour itself was fantastic! What a great way to see all of the highlights the island has to offer! Our guide, Bert, was awesome! Highly recommend this tour!!

We booked the Full day Soufriere excursion for our one day on St. Lucia during our cruise. It was a fantastic day with Vitus as our guide. From the banana plantation to the 2 botanical gardens, and every stop in between, we awed at the beauty of this island. Our only complaint: the day was not long enough! Thank you, Vitus, for sharing the love of your home with us. We will not soon forget our walk up the Stairway to Heaven!

I read a lot about this tour and great reports about our guide Wellington. It is true! The tour included just eight people and we had a fantastic time! Took other cruise ship tours after this day but they were not even close to being as engaging as Wellington! He made our day and remember this day above all others! Highly recommend it and would go again just to enjoy his company!

Got an amazing overview of the island - both sides. Never felt rushed at all - which is really important. Each stop was long enough to enjoy the area and get a real feel for what's there. We were so glad to book this tour - it got highly rated and really deserves it!

Enjoyed this tour and the guide that did it. The guide was on time getting us at our hotel, had great knowledge and told of the history between the Dutch and French sides of the island. Nice complementary beverages including the rum punch gotta to try it. Stopped for photo taking and shopping in Marigot as well as grabbed a nice lunch at one of the many French restaurants. The tour takes about 3-4 hours. Loved it.

We took this trip on the first day of our vacation to learn the layout of the island and perhaps find some interesting sights to go back and visit later in our trip.It worked out perfectly. It was very comprehensive and toured all the major sights on both sides of the island. The tour guide was excellent. Very outgoing and knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of St. Martin and had a wonderful time.

What a great way to find out about St. Marteen! We loved this tour that took us all over Dutch side and French side. Wellington was fun, wealth of information and made sure we all were paying attention. I would highly recommend this tour with Wellington and the guavaberry rum punch!

I highly recommend this tour. When on the tour with 5 of my girl friends for a bachelorette party and we all enjoyed this tour. The highlight was seeing the plane land and take off at Maho. Also shout out to our tour guide Wellington AKA Chico for being the best tour guide, very knowledgable and fun.
