Awesome excursion

We had a great day with Marlon! He was easy to locate outside of the cruise port and gave us a lot of information of the island. He was especially awesome at getting my youngest son (6) comfortable with new things that we experienced. The stop at the banana stand was great, he made several photo stops with beautiful views, the volcano and waterfall stops were awesome, and lunch at the beach restaurant was wonderful. Would highly recommend this excursion!

We do thank you for your recommendation and we do welcome you as a new member of our traveling family and do look forward in continuing serving you in the near future with a much better quality service.

Naomi was a great tour guide! Although the write up on the Viator site for the St. Lucia island day tour only mentioned "Dress code is smart Casual", the tour included the mud bath and also the waterfall. Since my husband and I did not bring our swimsuits this part of the tour was somewhat lost on us. We enjoyed a good lunch and some tasty snacks as well as some beautiful scenery. Would do it again for sure....

This was an outstanding tour of the Island! Ralph was our driver for the day, so personable, so informative, so polite and gracious. This is the way to see St. Lucia, up close and personable. Our stops along the way just added to the flavor of the Island. Thanks for the fun day!

We were 2 couples from 2 ships landing on the same day booked through Viator. Our driver/guide was Cherris who was excellent, probably the best guide of all those we had on our 6 island cruise. He told us a lot about this beautiful island and we managed to see a great many of the must-see highlights in a day.

Bernard was a fabulous tour guide and the tour of the island was wonderful. My only disappointment was that I originally booked this tour for 10 of us. A month or so later, another couple booked it and cross-referenced their booking with ours so that they would travel on the tour with us. Some time later, two other couples did the same, with one booking just days before the actual tour. On the tour date, the couple that booked just shortly after us was told they were on another bus. It ended up that they were the only ones in that van and our van was pretty packed. This reflects on Viator and not on the tour guides.

Remember to bring your swimsuit and towels!! We had Raphael as our driver for our St Lucia Island day tour. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island, and the flora and fauna. We enjoyed stops at the Black Water Pool of Sulpher Springs Park, the Toraille waterfall, and many other stops so we could snap beautiful photos! And the provided lunch was very tasty, and had an amazing view looking at the beach and the Pitons. He even knew some friends that had an open fire oven going, and Raphael got us some yummy casaba bread to taste. It was still nice and warm. It was a nice day learning about St Lucia!

Good overall drive around the island. Don't forget your swim suit or change of clothing for mud bath and waterfalls we did. Not much historical commentary if that's what you're looking for. Excellent driver--highly competent and professional, safely taking you around to the island highlights.

Nice 6 hour tour of St. Lucia. There was 5 of us on the tour. Lunch was good and plentiful. Nice restaurant with a beautiful view of the beach and the Pitons. for the stop at the island's largest banana plantation the van just pulled over to the side of the road and showed us some banana trees. You do not get to tour a banana plantation. Beer, soda, and water were offered from a cooler in the back of the van. If you wanted you could bathe in the sulphur springs and cover yourself in mud. Only one in our group did. It was an enjoyable tour and less expensive than the tours offered by the cruise line.

Our guide/driver Bernard was on time and safely drove us in a nice comfortable vehicle to all the places we were promised. He played a variety of music for us and was a great conversationalist. St. Lucia is a beautiful island and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We paid for a lunch to be included but it was not so we are asking Viator for a 10 per person refund. Bernard quoted us with that price had we wanted to have lunch along the way.
