Great tour! Rudy Rogers was a great guide and had lots to tell about the island. Maho Beach to see the planes land was an amazing stop. There is stunning views all over the island. Our stop in Margot was great! Try the guaveberry pina coladas, they are amazing!

This tour was great! David was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and informative, while making the whole trip fun. Wow, that rum punch was good and strong too. Our stops were Orient Beach, checked out the iguanas, shopped in Marigot, dodged the airplanes at Maho beach and drove back through Simpson Bay. Our guide pulled off in many... More

DJ Dave was a brilliant tour guide and driver. Very polite and helpful, always offering to take photos, provided a very well stocked bar!!! The trip ended at the amazing maho beach watching the planes land, spectacular!! Also went to both Marigot and phillipsburg, had plenty of time everywhere. Thank you, I highly recommend this company.

Booked a few months before the cruise.The directions to locate Bernard Tours was perfect. We waited about 20 minutes before starting off.Tour included time at Orient Beach, Marigot and Maho Beach where the planes land directly overhead. Liquid refreshments were provided throughout.

This is our first experience with a private tour (vs ship tour) and unfortunately it was not good. After all the good reviews for Bernard’s we were excited to take the tour. We arrived at the meeting place – which was really hard to find, not very good directions – on time only to wait for nearly 1 hour. Finally... More

I booked this tour before we got on the cruise . I don't like booking shore excursions through the ship because they put you on a bus with too many people and cost is higher . Daniel was our tour guide with two other couples . He was knowledgeable and friendly and took us around St. Maarten . It was... More

Our guide, "The Mailman", did a wonderful job showing us his home! Beaches, nudity 😯, beautiful scenery, history lessons, crazy airplane landings and his special rum punch! I only wish we had more time, but there was lots to see and we were limited by cruise schedule! It was just enough to make me want to go back and spend... More
