Meet your guide at your North Island St. Lucia hotel and climb aboard your vehicle for the drive to Soufriere. On the west coast road, pass through working banana plantations and traditional fishing villages, such as the 100-year-old Morne Fortune, the official residence of the Governor-General. Enjoy insightful commentary from your guide about the island's agriculture, wildlife, culture and history along the way.

Spectacular views of the Pitons, two volcanic peaks that are on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, announce your arrival in Soufriere. Head to Sulphur Springs, the Caribbean's volcano that allows drive-in access, to see the bubbly waters from a viewing platform. 

Visit the Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, whose centerpiece is the colorful Diamond Waterfall. This 56-foot (17-meter) mineral-rich waterfall is one of St. Lucia's most treasured natural wonders. While strolling the lush tropical gardens with commentary from your guide, keep an eye out for native birds that live in the mahogany and red cedar forest.

At the conclusion of your Soufriere adventure, climb back on the vehicle for the drive back to your St. Lucia hotel.

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our driver, Samuel, was very friendly and very knowledgeable of the areas included in the tour. Plenty of opportunity for photos. I highly recommend this tour.

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.

The tour was booked through Viator. I spent 20 mins on the phone in St Lucia costing me 12.00 to the local agent trying to find out the pick up time from our hotel! The tour itself was very good, Chris our driver picked us up promptly and there was only one more couple so we had a very personalised experience. Chris was really pleasant and very informative. Saw all the highlights and had plenty of photo opportunities. A great way to see the beautiful island of St Lucia.

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.

The tour guide, Stan, was great and we got to see everything in Soufriere, However, from the north side of the island this is a very long ride. It took about 6-1/2 hours round trip and at least 4-1/2 hours were spent driving in the van over narrow roads with too many S turns. Beware to those who get car sick. A tour by boat might be a better choice.

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.
