Scenic, educational drive and incredible hike!
Erik_H

I would like to start off by saying that my wife and I were looking to book the Gros Piton hike through sandals/island routes, but there was no availability when we went to book. We were extremely lucky that was the case, as I was able to find St. Lucia’s Best Experience Tours by googling Gros Piton Hike! The experience was incredible! I began to communicate with our driver, Dannyboy, via email the day prior to the hike. He responded immediately to all questions that I asked. The day of the hike started off bright and early at 6:30am. Dannyboy was waiting for us as we walked from our room to the main lobby at sandals halcyon. The energy and “good vibes” that he immediately began the ride with were a pleasant surprise to me, as I was just expecting a ride to the Pitons. Dannyboy talked about all sorts of history of the island, the political parties, the fishing villages, indigenous plants and animals, the school system…. anything and everything! I genuinely became smarter, and I appreciated Dannyboy’s enthusiasm and passion for his craft. We stopped along the way to take a great picture from a lookout point where you could see both Pitons. Right before we made it to the destination, Dannyboy was kind enough to buy us watermelon and mango to enjoy on the hike. It was the best mango I ever had! Upon our arrival, we paid $50 US per person for a personal tour guide. We were lucky enough to get Margaret, who said she had been doing the hike at least 3 times a week for the past 23 years. She was very funny and interested in what we planned on doing with the photos. She picked up a giant hermit crab when we first started and I thought that was very cool. She also educated us on the various plants and animals along the way. After the hike was over, Dannyboy was waiting for us with a couple cold Piton beers ready to drink! He even stopped along the road when he saw cacao and opened one up for us to try. It was delicious! As we made our way back to the resort, he gave us an exam on what we had talked about on the way to the Pitons, and we did surprisingly well. I would not trade the experience for anything, and I am looking forward to doing it again the next time we are back in St. Lucia. I would give more than 5 stars if I could. -Erik and Rachael “Rochelle”

Definitely, an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. This was a very challenging hike for us & we have hiked Diamondhead on Oahu. It took about 4 hours total to the summit & back. Our guide, Chile, was the BEST! He was willing to go at our pace & knows this climb extremely well. Halfway up, my husband decided to hang out at rest point 2. Evidently, this isn’t uncommon. The view is beautiful! Chile made sure that all was well with him & kept communicating with other guides to stay in touch since I continued with our group. The trek to the summit was tough, but definitely worth the climb. We loved our tour & are thankful for our skilled guide. Thanks again, Chile!!!

Dabbyboy was an excellent tour guide! He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. The transport vehicle was very clean and he made an hour plus drive feel like a 20-minute drive. He provided water, which was needed after our climb of the Gros Piton, and everything else we needed. I would highly recommend St Lucia Best Experience Tours!

Beautiful Majestic Piton Hike was so Beautiful!

Our hike to the top was absolutely Rewarding, challenging and amazing! This was our biggest accomplishment on the island! It was difficult and is straight up. Our guide Katia was so accomodating and patient, as well as our driver DannyBoy! There was one rail that needed to be fixed along the route, due to steep descent. We loved this hike and recommend to moderate-highly fit hikers!

Hi Craig! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback on your experience. We are happy that you were satisfied with your guide Katia. We have also brought the railing to the attention of the Piton Management Authority and hope that it will be fixed soon. Thank you for that observation. Your feedback helps us to improve service for everyone. We truly appreciate your business and hope to see you again in the future. Good Vibes!

What a day! If you’re looking to challenge yourself and get some breathtaking moments (this includes both the hike and the view), then this is the tour for you! The gym and I have not quite worked out our differences so I did find this a little challenging...but in the days later, my thighs have never looked better!! We conquered the Gros Piton on Sunday 28th July. It was a 2hr and some minutes journey up and the same down. Our tour guides Tarika and Amos were very helpful and patient with us as we (mainly me) took breaks. Going up you get to see various views of the island at different points. Aldus (I may be spelling this wrong sorry 🤦🏾‍♀️) our driver was lovely. He has a lot of knowledge of the different areas of St Lucia and so on our drive he shared a lot of interesting facts about St Lucia and it's history, wildlife etc. He also introduced us to the famour Piton lager! There was a little issue with our tour (it was meant to be private but accidentally double booked) and we had to join with another couple but we were treated to some amazing local lunch in the area of Anse Le Raye once we had made it back down! All in all, great experience which I highly recommend!! Make sure to bring comfortable shoes and water! Oooh and your camera! Maybe even some snacks to keep your energy up

Invigorating hike

The driver that picked us up was friendly and provided a couple of large water bottles for the hike. Cost of admission to the hike by the Park Service was $50 US per person for us, and thankfully they accepted major credit cards (I couldn't find the price elsewhere on the internet). The hike was definitely a climb and the humidity can hit you hard. Drinking lots of water is key, along with having a snack for the top. The views are breathtaking. You'll be accompanied by a Park guide the whole way who will lead you to stops along the way. After the hike there are several shops with souvenirs and ice cream. A ride back was provided back to our hotel, as well.

GUARANTEED GREAT TIME!!

GUARANTEED GREAT TIME! Major credit is due to Danney “DannyBoy!” who is easily the best tour guide, St. Lucia historian, comedian, and friend that you could ever want for your time on the island. Things started very smoothly in talking to Danney twice the day before to confirm our tour and pickup location. Arriving precisely at 6:30am, DannyBoy was ready to go and full of energy for our drive from the north end of the island to the south where the Pitons are. We learned more about St. Lucia in our one hour drive than we did during our entire rest of the trip thanks to DannyBoy. As for the actual climb up Gros Piton, we had a wonderful hike. Four climbers plus a guide went up together. The path is well shaded by foliage and there are steps/handrails most of the way to aid in climbing/hiking. The climb is certainly easiest if in good physical shape, but likely doable for most people. The pace really determines the difficulty, and they will adjust to best meet the needs of the group. The views at the rest stops along the way are AMAZING! Fingers crossed that it isn’t cloudy when you get to the top for you, although even with clouds, the views did not disappoint. After the climb, DannyBoy took us to the famous mud baths and waterfall, taking care of the entrance fees at both and offering to take pictures for and with us! Because DannyBoy works on his own, you are able to make stops along the way for pictures or sightseeing, or even stop at the local rum distillery! Perhaps the best evidence that we can give why you should choose to do this tour and choose DannyBoy is that we were having so much fun that we forgot to stop for our buffet lunch and didn’t even notice! Ultimately, climbing Gros Piton and spending the day with DannyBoy was the SINGLE BEST HIGHLIGHT of our entire trip to St. Lucia. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience on our honeymoon! ~Steven & Megan
