Heidi was an excellent tour guide. If you want the history of the island she is very knowledgable. It was nice to be in a air-conditioned van.

We took this trip last week while visiting the Rodney bay area in St. Lucia. We were picked up right on time and had a small group of 6 in our van. The driver was knowledgeable. His name was Sammy and he encouraged our questions. We had a delightful time and I would recommend this tour as a great overview of the country. My favourite part was the Botanical Gardens. Amazing to see this oasis of topical plants and the waterfall. note, that that the half day depends on road traffic. I would suggest you bring a snack or small lunch in your pack to eat when you are past lunch time on the way back.

This trip was the delight of our trip to St. Lucia! Our driver, Sammy, was a most excellent tour guide. He told us many interesting facts, pointed out things of interest, stopped for photo ops, and stopped by a bakery and purchased everyone cassava. This is a must do tour!!!

Brilliant from start to finish. Prompt pick up from Kim and Lesley. Due to a mix up with bookings at the next hotel we had to wait for a while. This did not affect the trip as Kim made sure we got a full trip and we actually got longer than we expected. Highly recommended. Botanical gardens fantastic.

A good introduction to the island.Our driver as full of useful information and very punctual(to the minute for pick up).
It would have been useful to know that tipping was expected at the garden(I had not taken any cash)

This was a great tour - our Tour Guide Sammy was super knowledgable and friendly. Be warned that this is slightly longer than a half day tour - we didn't stop for a meal and while we had some snacks along the way, we made a lot of stops to visit with vendors and take photos along the way so we were very hungry by the end! Small group size so the guide was able to customize some of the stops based on where we wanted to go.
