My group of 12 toured last week with Bernard's tours. The driver "Mailman" was very informative, efficient and friendly. The transportation bus was comfortable and air conditioned. Our tour went exactly as planned other than two small things. We had requested Bernard as our tour guide that day and thought that was confirmed. Don't get me wrong, we loved the... More

We took this tour while on a cruise. I read other reviews and booked online through their website. we went to the French and Dutch Side. Our tour guid was very knowledgeable of the island. My two boys 9 and 5 were entertained when it came to feeding the iguanas and spending some time at Maho Beach. Might want to... More

We had the mailman show us around the island. He was very knowledgeable and very clear and had a great personality. He even brought his own special homade island punch... which I'm sure could have been used as gas if we ran out. The trip was great, not too much time to see everything but we had a great time...

Extremely knowledgeable tour company who does an excellent job showing you a lot of the island in a short amount of time. The Mailman was our driver and was great. Very funny, full of hospitality and bursting with knowledge about the island. We had a great time and I highly recommend this excursion when on a cruise.

We had a great tour courtesy of the Mailman. He gave a great insight into island life (and his 25 brothers and sisters!) and gave us lots of laughs. The rum punch was out of this world and the beach stop was awesome. We all enjoyed the tour and would recommend to anyone.

We booked this tour based on reviews on both Tripadvisor and CruiseCritic. We were asked to meet at 8.30am prompt. The meeting point wasn't the easiest place to find and we had to ask for directions several times. When we eventually arrived at the white tent we were not exactly welcomed with open arms. We were abruptly asked for the... More

“Action Jackson” gave us a wonderful tour of St. Maarten! We traveled all over the island, seeing all the highlights, beautiful vistas, and learning about its unique Dutch/French island-share. We saw how batiks were made, ate a Caribbean lunch, and viewed a thin stretch of land where you could see the ocean on both sides. Of course, Maho beach was... More

I booked this (non-private) tour after reading great reviews from TripAdvisor. This was to be our final stop as part of our Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean. We opted for a non-cruise excursion as this was less expensive for our family. The tour was well-organized. You register yourself under their white tent and wait a bit for a tour bus... More

We had our tour with DJ who is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly driver. The tour itself is great, you get quality time at some well known and not so well known stops. DJ is always making sure you are good for time to get back to your cruise ship on time. I highly recommend this tour

Book it. Just do it, and ask for DJ. It is so much cheaper than the cruise ships will charge, and so much better. After a great local tour with Cosol Tours in St Lucia, we had a rather underwhelming experience on one booked through the cruise line on St Kitts. Having experienced both, we paid for internet on the... More
