St. Lucia through the eyes of Lufan
Connie_W
, Jun 2022
Lufan was an exceptional guide. He gave us the view of the island through the eyes of a native and it was splendid. We had a wonderful conversation about culture and shared ancestry. He was patient and kind. He took care to answer all of our questions about everything from the school system, to how the roads work, and the connections with other people culturally. When we found out that the rum tasting my friend wanted to experience was canceled, he made sure she was able to get the rum she wanted. He was our photographer at all of the stops (the pics he took are not included here) and genuinely made St. Lucia feel like home.

Richard customized our tour to what we wanted yo do. Starting with a little shopping, tasting of local cuisine and onto the sites of Castries Bay, Marigot Bay, Pitons, La Soufriere Dr in Volcano and Diamond Falls. We ate lunch at the Beacon restaurant looking out over the beautiful bay. Highly recommend. he took great care of us.

Amazing in every way!

I originally booked a group tour last year when we were due to come. Unfortunately due to Covid that tour got cancelled the same day we were to go. St Lu offered the same tour but on a private experience and still managed to get us in on the same exact day too! Noting was lost and everything more was gained. Our guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. He made sure we saw the entire island and he took all of our pictures for us so we captured awesome memories too! He was so proud of his island and explained everything with such enthusiasm. He was able to answer every question and he catered to all our needs. We felt extremely safe and had the best day ever. St Lu also offers great prices and outdoes all the others. When in ST Lucia don’t miss this extraordinary company.

Disappointing
Nina_S
, Jun 2022
Our driver showed up on time, was nice and his car was clean. We got in the car and he asked us where we want to go. We said you tell us, so he listed out the checklist of sites on St. Lucia. We told him we trusted him to pick a few based on things we like to do (get out of car, walk around, learn some history, eat some local food, etc.). We asked him to pick a few of the top things and what made sense logistically with not too much time in the car. He just kept asking us to pick what we want to see. So we picked a couple from his list with no guidance from him. Didn't talk much throughout driving unless we asked a question and oftentimes he said he didn't know. He did not know any restaurants in Soufriere (except for one at the top of a hill past Soufriere which we had eaten dinner at the night before and was a kind of far drive). Again, he was nice but based on reviews I was looking forward to someone who knew the island and would guide us in the right direction. That was not this experience....When I asked if he normally did tours he said no. Said he was normally an airport transfer driver. Very disappointed at the cost and what felt like a waste of our day on St. Lucia. We ended it somewhat early to go back to our resort.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
We are very sorry to hear that was your experience but I can surely say that you have placed this review with the wrong company. This is definitely not any of our driver and our reviews speaks volume of our quality of service. More to strengthen what I was saying we do not have any new drivers/tour guide. Sorry once again you have the wrong company and and the bad experience you had.

Should have listened to our guide.

We really liked our driver. He suggested we go to one side of the island. We said we wanted to go to the other side. Wish we would have listened to him. We went to the capital. Just awful. Way to long of a drive.

True review of an amazing day!!
lisa_c
, May 2022
We were promptly greeted by our tour guide for the day Richard, he introduced himself and asked us what we wanted to do within our private tour of St lucia. From there our journey begins! Richard has so much knowledge of the island and the history related to it in such a proud Manor and was so happy to answer all of our questions along the way. During our requested stops Richard made sure we were always happy and comfortable and he always provides a happy vibe of amazing music along the way. We travelled alot around the island showing us so much scenery before we hit all of our destinations. Each place we visited was a joy viewing and meeting the locals of the island with no real stress or issues.. just one bit of advice if you have Richard or another driver then request to have a meal at the big Red House at the top of the hill opposite the pitons.. it's truly worth the view.. A huge thank you Richard, your days tour was amazing and made memories we will never forget showing us what st lucia has to offer and soak up life outside the resort

St Lucian Highlights
Milanee_S

LuFan was amazing. He arrived 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. He inquired about our attraction preferences, was knowledgeable about St Lucian history, trust worthy, and one of the best travel guides I’ve had over the years.

Seeing the Beauty of St. Lucia!
MaryJane_T

Lufan was so accommodating to what we wanted to see. He gladly answered any questions we had about St. Lucia! My grandson hiked up to see a spectacular view of the Pitons which was on his bucket list while there. We saw the Botanical Gardens and Diamond Falls and so much more. We got to see breathtaking views of the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea! My grandson and I both recommend Lufan for your tour of St. Lucia!

Absolutely amazing tour of St. Lucia
Patricia_S
, Apr 2022
We had an absolutely amazing day on St. Lucia. Dillon (Dylan) our driver was outstanding. He was personable, friendly, knew the island inside and out and really made our day. He got to spend his day with three "old" ladies (70, 70 and 81) but he kept us laughing all day and showed us around the entire island. I would highly recommend him to anyone else to St. Lucia who wants a wonderful tour.

I highly recommend this tour and if you can start as early as possible. CG was an awesome driver and guide. One of our favorite stops was the Tet Paul Nature Trail, which is quick a hike but worth the views at the top. I suggest doing this and then going to relax in the Sulpher Springs Mud Bath. A great day all around. Bring extra cash in small bills, it will come in handy.

Fantastic tour with Travis
Patricia_C
, Apr 2022
Travis was the best! He is smart and was delightful to spend the day with. Very knowledgable about the island - didn’t miss a beat answering all our question. Took us to a spot I had been to over 10 years ago just by my description of it. It was New Jerusalem mineral bath. Not on the regular tours any more as it’s challenging to get to it. He definitely made our island special and memorable. Thanks Travis for a fantastic day!

We had an AMAZING experience. The booking and confirmation process was easy. We were collected on time by the lovely Richard. He was incredibly knowledgeable (as you would expect from a resident St Lucian) we were offered a selection of cold drinks. Richard was happy to stop for many photo opportunities. We visited Hotel Chocolat for cocktails and Jade Mountain Resort for lunch as per our individual itinerary. Richard was a wonderful driver and we can’t recommend or thank the company enough for the most wonderful experience! ❤️

We did a car tour to the Pitons, botanical gardens and volcano. We did get to see everything we wanted but the traffic was very heavy and took much longer than expected. Our driver (Lusan) did a nice job getting us around and was very friendly.

Private Tour but not very flexible.
Patricia_E
, Feb 2022
Having a private tour in St. Lucia should have allowed us the flexibility to visit exactly where we wished. It wasn't quite that easy. We were able to skip the mud baths, for example, but we had no opportunity to see the capital city or to wander along the shoreline of Soufriere. In fact, our driver, while very competent behind the wheel, was not much of a guide. He simply delivered us to places where an onsite guide took over unless we asked questions directly. To his credit, we stopped for lunch at a very pleasant roadside place with a spectacular view.

Amazing and memorial tour
Peter_K

Richard was a great tour guide, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We visited the volcano sulphur springs, viewed the Pitons, went to the beautiful botanical gardens, all giving us amazing memories of our day on this lovely island. We were visiting from a cruise ship, started the day early so were ahead of crowds. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

We were picked up by Dylan at our resort right on time. We had a list of places we wanted to check out and he accommodated our list. He was a great tour guide and photographer. I would highly recommend this trip as an awesome way to avoid the crowds and customize your sightseeing and activities.
