What You Can Expect

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.

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.

We loved this tour. The driver was informative and friendly. We enjoyed the stops we made. We had enough time at each stop and did not feel rushed. He did run out of water as our group was not into the rum or sodas, I'm sure that was unusual. We were a very happy and satisfied group.

This tour was well worth the money. Our guide was the humorous and entertaining Wellington, who taught us a great deal about the history of the island and the conflict between the French and Dutch settlers. We were traveling as a family of 5 and my three adult children enjoyed the frequent offerings of local beer and rum punch. Highlights were swimming in the crystal clear waters at Maho Bay while huge planes took off/landed directly overhead. We also got to feed iguanas and handle live sea urchins. Overall, a very fun day and next time, Wellington, we hope to actually enjoy more of ---SIMPSON BAY!!!

The tour of the French and Dutch sides were absolutely marvelous. The tour guide, Wellington was very knowledgeable about both sides of the island and its history. We could not have asked for a better tour not to mention the beautiful weather.

This your was awesome. From the moment they picked us up, to the moment they dropped us off, they took great care of us! Everything was planned out perfect, with time to stop and see some of the great things St. Maarten has to offer. Drinks were offered and encouraged throughout the trip as we traveled around the island. The friendly staff was knowledgeable and prepared for a day of fun. We sat on the beach as a 747 went over us timing was perfect thanks to our guide, spent time on the number 1 beach on the island, had time to explore Marigot, had iguana's eat around our legs, and took in some amazing sights. Now we know where we want to go back for the rest of our stay in the island. Highly recommended to everyone coming! Fantastic day!!!!
