Our family of 5 (all 19 and up), enjoyed this tour of St. Martin. We had a little trouble locating the meeting point but dock staff pointed us in the right direction. Waited for a bit in a tent with fans. Loaded into a small tour bus- but it was full. Once the tour started we enjoyed the commentary about the island from our driver. Tour offered cans of soda, beer, water, and rum punch (strong!). Driver stopped several places for pictures. The iguana stop (roadside stand where you can see, feed, and take pictures with iguanas) was our favorite. We headed for a beach but when driver saw lots of seaweed and big waves, he took us to another much better spot. Bar and restaurant on a beautiful beach. Had a lovely time here. Next we stopped at a shopping area. Then, it was on to the beach at the airport. Overall our least favorite but I know some people really want to see the planes. After the nice restaurant and beach stop before, this stop was meh. Beach was not as nice. We did not eat or drink here. But the staff did let us sit in the shade while waiting for a plane. Overall a good tour. Much longer than it said but we were fine with that. Got back to dock in plenty of time to shop and get onboard before all aboard time. Tour includes several options in one- tour of island, shopping, and beach time.

Action Jackson was a gracious, informative host/tour guide! You can tell he loves what he does and loves his island! Personally I would have preferred a shorter excursion but that had nothing to do with Action Jackson. Perhaps some of it was due to the unusual rainy weather...

My husband and two adult daughters enjoyed this tour very much. The tour guide, the Mailman, was excellent and provided information and history of the island the entire time we were driving. He allowed us to have several photo stops along the way, including an opportunity to hold/pet iguanas by the roadside a gentleman had a slew of them ready for us to photograph and allowed volunteers to hold one - my daughter took advantage of that. The beach stop was very comfortable though we did have to pay an additional fee 20for two chairs and an umbrella. My printout said chairs were included but I didn't pursue that. We were a little disappointed that we did not see a plane take off at the last beach stop but we did see one land and were entertained by the spectacle of everyone gathering to experience being blown away by the jet exhaust. The Mailman had plenty of ice cold water, beer Caribe- very good local beer and rum punch. As much as you would want! Overall, the tour was a very good value for the money and we all highly recommend it!

We had read reviews about this tour prior to booking and were so very happy to have gotten The Mailman as our tour guide! Everything good thing everyone before us said about him was true! He was absolutely fabulous! He was so informative and knowledgeable about the island, and took us to the perfect spots for photos and fun! The bus was comfortable and air conditioned, he was easy to hear, and answered everyone's questions. His refreshments were perfect for everyone. We highly recommend this tour, and if you're lucky, you will get The Mailman as your tour guide, too!!

Would love to give this tour a 5 star, however, at the end of our trip we experienced an overwhelming amount of traffic which led to some rising stress levels that we would not make it back to our ship on time. Luckily, we did. There were 5 ships in port that day, so they need to allow extra time on the return portion of the trip. That being said, the trip itself was so fun. Our adults and teens loved it. Would recommend this to others!!! DJ ROCKS!!!

Our guide was named The Mailman, and he was fantastic. He was funny, insightful, and gave us a ton of interesting facts about the island. He had a cooler full of drinks for us and even had his own homemade rum punch. After the tour, he drove us to a building where we could get our passports stamped. Go on this tour and ask for The Mailman.

the Bernards Tour was the highlight of our trip to St. Maarten. Once we found the tent at the cruise terminal, it was well run and a joy to be part of. Our driver DJ was courteous, informed, and had a great sense of humor. The free drinks helped as well ! Plenty of time to see the nude beaches of Orient Beach, visit Marigot for some awesome French pastries, see the Jets skimming low at Maho Beach, and get the real feel of the island. Will take this tour again.
