We had taken this tour previously and loved it. This time it was a horrible experience that just left us wanting it to end. Confusion at departure, shotty vehicle, excursion change not notified about until we were en route, no drinks, only "tour" was driving past stores and told they had good food.

Our amazingly informative Driver, Paul, told us all about the island as he drove us to each beach. We watched the planes take off and land at Princess Juliana Airport whose runway is a few feet from sandy, Maho Beach. There are bars and restaurants at Maho Beach, but we went in the morning, so we didn't go into anyof them. When we were done with plane watching, Paul took us over to the French side of the island to Orient Bay which has beautiful beaches. There are shops and restaurants here. If Paul is your driver, he can give you a wonderful experience because he knows the island inside and out!

This tour was awesome! We thought we booked only a beach tour but got to see so much more. Our driver, Lake, made sure to tell us all about the island and stopped for pictures along the way. My boyfriend and I were the only ones on this tour which made it more personalized!

Best tour ever. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide than Douce. Not only did we get the tour that we actually paid for, but much more in terms of history and culture. Couldn't recommend a better tour.

Our tour guide, Diederick the owner, was great! He was very knowledgeable of the island and shared with us lots of details about the island. No rushing, no pressure tour. This was the best excursion of our cruise. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.

This excursion was great. Although a rough start, not due to the tour group but disrespecting patrons that did not show up, the tour was great. Paul was a great tour guide and very informative telling us about the history of the island and showing us tucked away sites. Thanks so much for a great time.
