Fantastic St.Maarten Trip
Jerry H

We visited St.Maarten on 9-14-19 and booked a private tour through Diederick SXM tours. After some confusion caused by the cruise port terminal personnel on where to actually meet our tour guide, once we found the correct meeting spot, things went great from there.. Our driver had a cooler full of local beers as well as some great rum punch. Our driver did an excellent job and gave us a fantastic complete tour of the island. At the end of the tour the driver took us right back to the cruise terminal in plenty of time to get back on the ship.

This tour gave us great insight into the island's past, present post-hurricanes, and gave us hope for the future of St Maarten. The island was devastated by the hurricanes, but the spirit of the people was strong. Our guide was incredible - we ended up being the only two on the tour, and he made sure we enjoyed and learned as much as we could. We didn't just see statues - but Paul explained who the people were and why they are important. We saw all the typical tourist sights while getting more details about the island itself than expected. I definitely recommend - it was a great experience and allowed us to give back to an island in need, and definitely touched us in ways we will keep with us. I look forward to returning in a year and taking this tour again to see how the island has recovered further. Thanks for the incredible experience.

Wish I had taken a ship tour. Our guide Paul was bias against the French, something he should have kept to himself. We were told shipping at the ship was much better and cheaper than other the French section of the Island. Trouble is, he didn't get us back to the ship area in enough time to shop. We had to rush to make our all aboard time. One couple on the group of 6 was constantly late after stops. Had it been impressed on them to be on time, we may have had more free time at the dock shopping. Before departing for the tour, Paul was told to have us back by 2 pm. all aboard was 2:30 We got back at 2:20. In total, 4 of us sat in the van for 20 minutes waiting for 2 other travelers who couldn't have cared less as their ship all aboard wasn't till 5 pm.

Great guide and tour. Were able to go to both sides. Would rather have more time at Maho beach and less time in Marigot or Philipsburg. Maho beach was the most fun. Ate lobster in Marigot and was ok but nothing special at Rosemary's. Would take a pass on that.
