, Aug 2017
This trip was indeed worth it our Driver Sammy and tour guide was very knowledgeable .For the land part of the trip as we drove from Castries we were informed along the way about the history of the island. Several landmarks and buildings were pointed out along the way .We also had the opportunity for several picture stops along they way. We even got a chance to sample bananas including ketchup and the ever popular Spice Rum. Along the way the driver was very informative and his co tour guide also spoke German since we has a German couple aboard the Bus. As we passed villages such as Canaries and Ansa La Reye we were given a good history lesson. The stop at the botanical gardens was my least favourite part of the trip since I felt like we just walked passed and not much was said. The trip to the volcano was also good however was disappointed that we didn't get to do the Sulphur bath. I think this should be included in the trip since it is known as must do in St Lucia. I would have preferred to switch the botanical Gardens for the Sulphur Bath. However my disappointed was quickly faded after we left the volcano and had the delicious local lunch at the Estate restaurant. After lunch we headed down to Soufriere where we boarded a catamaran cruise .The atmosphere on the boat vibes and the dj played different genres of music including soca and hip hop .The views along the coastline was absolutely breath taking especially the view of Marigot Bay. I can't stop talking about this tour I would definitely recommend this tour was a way to see a good part of the island. I was also very impressed with the friendliness of all the locals which we interacted with during the tour. I repeat this is a must do tour on a visit to St Lucia

Overall, fun tour. I felt our guide spent too much time at the start of the tour pulling over to explain things, then we seemed to be rushed through the volcano and gardens tour so that we could get to the boat on time. I thought we would be going on a tour of a banana plantation, but we just stopped on the side of the road next to one and spoke with a local merchant about various banana products. I enjoyed lunch, the food was good however, they had an unexpected tour group show up before us, so our spots were taken up by other people. We had to wait for them to set up a table for us and the food was pretty picked over by the time we got to it, which was a little disappointing. Also, the bathrooms at the restaurant were very unclean and not working well. I would not recommend waiting to change there, just have your swim suit under your clothes before you go. The catamaran was very fun, I enjoyed the rum punch available on board. Snorkeling time is very limited, I think only about 30 minutes. Overall it was a fun tour, our family had a nice time, it just wasn't exactly what I had thought it would be based on the description.

Our tour guide Padia, was awesome! She was so knowledgeable and engaging about St. Lucia. The botanical gardens were beautiful and the volcano was a one of a kind experience. Our lunch at the banana plantation was delicious and plentiful and we made plenty of stops for photo ops and a little shopping. Only things that were great but less than spectacular was the catamaran in the afternoon. Apparently it was a brand new boat and still had some kinks to work out, and we left late. Also unfortunately it rained pretty much the entire time we were on the boat so the snorkeling was basically useless. Finally, we didn't see anything like the picture depicted on the our description so I'm not sure if that's just a stock photo or something. All in all, it was a great way to see the entire island.

Samuel- our tour guide and driver was very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. He knew all the back roads and local attractions. From start to end our tour was filled with laughter and we actually made friends with two other couples. The volcano was amazing , beautiful waterfalls and the botanical garden was breathtaking. Catamaran sea tour was awesome, we got to see the beauty of this island from the sea. Highly recommend this tour

This was a great day. Saw a good part of the island. Drove through Castries. Stopped for a scenic view of the city from above looking down on the cruise ships. Went to the Botanical Gardens. The waterfall was very nice . Then had a buffet lunch at a outdoor place . Then went to the drive through volcano. It was very cool. Then drove to the boat for a ride on a catamaran and snorkeling. That was fun. After snorkeling it was like a party cruise, and the rum punch was flowing all the way back to Castries. Great day, and well worth it if you get a chance. The catamaran was full but was not overloaded.

We really enjoyed the land and sea tour. It was a very full day, but we got to see so much. Loved out tour guides, they were very informed and had a lot to share about the island. There was a slight mix up with the lunch, but they got it worked out and all were happy with the authentic Caribbean meal. If you get car sick easily, I wouldn't recommend as you are traveling by bus up and down the mountains of the island. Favorite parts were the botanical gardens and the snorkeling trip. Great trip overall!

Was a lot of fun! Knowledgable tour guides that wanted to make sure you had a great time. Lunch provided was delicious and scenic at "The Still" restaurant. Only recommendation would be to minimize the number of people on the catamaran sea portion. It was quite crowded with multiple tour groups.
