I was worried about being on time with the difference between ship time and local time, but I forgot that "island time" is a real thing, heh. Communication with Bobbi when I made the Viator reservation was clear and helpful. Peggy was there to meet me for the quick bus ride from the cruise terminal to the ATV location and get the paperwork done. There were only three of us and the guide.
Dwight was our guide, and he was truly exceptional!!! He really rode to our abilities, which made it so much more fun. One of the other riders had also been worried that it might be a little boring, but Dwight kept it really fun and exciting for us! He stopped and took a ton of photos with us using our own cameras and showed us some really great views, including the planes going over Maho Beach. He checked regularly to make sure we were all keeping up. Riding through the traffic was pretty entertaining. The locals in the cars seemed to be used to quads riding down the middle between the two lines of traffic.
The check out process at the end was quick and easy as well. As someone who has ridden quads extensively for many years, this was the first time I rode an ATV while on vacation. It was the highlight of my trip, and I would definitely do it again. I am certain that they would also make it a great trip for riders with little to no experience too. Thanks a ton to Dwight, Peggy, and Bobbi!!!

Very nice. Although we were promised bottled water at the beginning (but did not receive at the beginning) and end of trip, it was all good when we finished and they gave us an endless supply of bottled water and rum punch. Great trip for the price. Highly recommended.

This was a great way to experience the entire island. Dwight was a great tour guide and very patient with everyone. There was a little mishap with scheduling but we were still accommodated. This will make you tired but I think it's a must when visiting St. Martin.

This tour was fantastic. We had ages from 9 to 70 and the tour guides were so helpful. Everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time. We were a little late so didn't get to take to many pictures but the guides still made the tour fantastic.
