Reviews by Viator travelers
Tour was great
The scenery was amazing. The photographer was busy taking pictures but we were never given the opportunity to see the pictures,not sure why he took them. When we asked to see the pictures and possibly buy them, the tour guide was not interested at all
Thanks for the feedback, please let us have the email address that you want the pictures forwarded to. We will review to ensure that there is no repeat of this. Please also note that you are allowed to take your own photos.
This is a fun tour glad we took it. It is a great way to visit the area away from other tourists and get a beautiful scenic tour. The guide was knowledgeable about the area. The taxi was waiting for us right off the ship and then took us to a beach and back to the boat.
We loved the experience! My dad, and teenage kids and I spent a great couple of hours in the mountains of St Lucia.
The down side was that the guy running the tour was NOT on time when we were supposed to meet. I would advise contacting him for confirmation BEFORE arriving. It was more than a bit nerve racking when he wasn't at the appointed location at the appropriate time.
It was just the 2 of us and we had a blast. The views were amazing and our guide stopped several times to explain about the banana groves and turtle beach and water wheel and other things. It was a great time.
This tour was fun and informative! The guide was knowledgeable and kept a good pace for us to follow. We drove through local communities and a banana plantation. A good way to see the St. Lucia countryside.
We had a great morning out with these guys. From pick up at our hotel the driver was really friendly and informative about his Island. We got there on time short safety brief as we have done this before and then out onto the open roads in to the hills and plantations. There was only the 2 of us as it was out of season. Great trip out stops along the way and a drink. Drove back and through a stream great fun. Driver was waiting with towels and a big smile ready to take us back to our hotel. Well done and thank you guys. We will be back again for sure.
A nice tour through the banana plantations, an abandoned factor from 1860, and a stunning view of the coast from a hilltop. I would have like a little more off-road travel. Most of our tour was on blacktop, gravel roads or dirt road, with a single minor detour through a stream that was fun. Really nice scenery, and the guides were nice.
