Was good but not great.
, Apr 2019
The tour company was late to pick up. This tour is ALOT of driving! I wish we would have done something that allowed time to other stuff. We did not get to do things listed in the tour description. We didn't see Calvin the Sea urchin man but instead saw the iguana location. Orient Beach is not running with all the shops closed and only one restaurant it felt disappointing. We spent 1.5 hours here, the water is gorgeous but restaurant didn't open unitl 12 so there wasn't much else to do. You make several Photo Stops, while cool, I wouldn't do that again. The shops in Marigot were nothing special, or at least the part our guide took us. They had all the same stuff in the Terminal . Maho beach we didn't have a lot of time there we did see a few planes but it really isn't a beach for swimming. While we did get to see a lot of things It would have been better I think to invest more time at a few things instead of like 10. It was a lot of time spent in the car. The fook marigot was very expensive as well, don't let them offer you the rice as that adds $10 to your bill. We ordered the BBQ chicken that was $6 but then when we got our bill it was $16. The rice was not included and that isn't mentioned on the menu.
St. Maarten Beaches, Shopping and Marigot

Great excursion. No one else signed up so we had a private tour. Our guide, Erwin, was terrific. He took us to the beach, shopping and all over both sides of the island. We would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone.

We booked this group excursion and ended up being the only 2 so it was private! Driver was knowledgeable and very friendly. So much so we treated him to lunch. The airport time was a little rushed and we didnt see any large planes. There is still a lot of hurricane damage but the beaches are beautiful. We didnt feel rushed and we got to see just about everything. I highly recommend this trip.

Paul was our guide for this excursion. He was very nice and knowledgeable. There was a lot of damages from the hurricane but it did not take away the beauty of this island. We enjoyed the Maho Beach experience, sight seeings, and local foods. We went to Friar Beach instead of Orient Beach. We stayed here for about 2 hours before heading back. The beach was nice, quite, and clean.

Maynard the driver was very friendly and informative. We got to see the whole island and learnt a lot. We had to deviate from the tour slightly due to hurracain damage but Maynard made sure we got to see the keys attractions.

My sister and I ended up being the only ones on the tour which meant we received a personalized tour of St. Maarten/Ste. Martin. It was great! We spent as long as we wanted at Orient and Maho beaches and had plenty of time to browse the shops in Marigot. Our guide was excellent and we really felt taken care of all day. Loved it!

We had a good tour with our driver, Paul! The other people canceled so it ended up being a private tour for my wife and I. The tour offered a great view of the entire island with plenty of time at Orient beach. The only thing I would change about this tour would be a little bit more time exploring Marigot, as we only had time for a very quick lunch before heading back out. Note: The tour advertises a stop to visit the sea urchin man but he has recently passed away. Instead of this, we stopped to visit the iguanas instead! Great tour!

Paul was AWESOME! The other family that was supposed to be on our tour was running late but he didn't make us wait. He had another tour guide wait for them which was great. He took us all over the Island and answered any questions we had. We have an 8 year old so he made sure to do things to entertain her. He made sure to take us to a calmer beach so she could swim and he cleaned the sand from our shoes while he waited. He really went the extra mile to please us. He provided a cooler full of drinks and informed us that it was expensive at certain places to help us save money. Paul made the most of our time and helped us enjoy the island to the fullest the whole entire day. Everyone on the island knows Paul and I'm sure it because he is so AWESOME! I hope to see him again one day :- I absolutely recommend this tour! The Martin Family

Great tour. It was nice having the shuttle to ourselves, so we can ask questions of the history of St Maarten. Orient beach was ok-too much seaweed washed ashore and the water was kinda cold and waves a little rough. I liked the boardwalk and the shops and restaurants.

Diedrix and his wife were wonderful tour guides. They knew all the great photo stops and were really sweet. We enjoyed everything the tour provided. The only drawbacks were from the island itself and were less noticeable due to our great guide.
