What a huge disappointment. I booked this tour and paid for it prior to arriving in St. Thomas. Once we found the bus (there was no one holding a sign as stated there would be) we boarded the bus and waited and waited. Once "Taxi Love" finally started the bus we traveled a couple of miles to the downtown area only to pull over and wait once again for his brother's bus to arrive . This was another 30-45 minute . We then started to travel up the mountain to an overlook. Guess what.....we pulled over and waited another 45 minutes. The other bus left with the peoples belongings on it to go back and pick up someone else. When the bus got back and people started getting on board the buses were full. They separated 2 young girls from their grandmother and put them in the cab of the bus we were on. We once again started up the mountain to the obnoxious behavior of our driver. (Pumping his brakes to the beat of the music). He dropped us off at the top of the mountain with no instructions as to when to be back on the bus. We wondered around about 20 minutes and everyone started heading back to the bus. By this time everyone on our bus was angry and were really looking forward to our beach time we had paid for. We get to Magens Bay and are informed that if we want to get off the bus we must pay an additional $5.00. Some of the people were from another boat that was leaving earlier than we were and did not have enough time for the 2 hour beach time as stated in the tour. We all agreed to just put this miserable tour behind us and asked to be taken back to the port. I watched as one mother had to explain to her children that they would not be able to swim in the ocean as she had promised them all day that they could. I have traveled extensively and have booked many excursions. This was the worst one I have ever experienced. First time I have seen a bus unload and no one tipping the tour guide!!

Thanks for your review of the tour. I am sorry that you felt disappointed in the tour. We strive our best to provide a fun, memorable experience on our beautiful island. Usually once the meeting instructions are followed, there are no problems locating us on the Dock. We give the late comers a few minutes to meet up for their pick up time. On this particular day there were two people whose ship came in late. The driver didnt want them to miss the tour, so while the rest of the group was enjoying a lookout spot, he took the opportunity to go back and pick up those people which only takes about 10-15 minutes since the first lookout spot is not too far. These guests were very appreciative of this. The others' belongings on the bus were at no time compromised. We take the security of guests belongings very seriously.
The entrance fee to Magens Beach has always been additional. We do not collect that fee. So as long as one is going to spend some time at Magens Beach, the entrance fee has to be paid at the entrance. We offer two other beach choices, Coki and Sapphire are free to enter. We always ensure that all guests are back to their ship on time. In rare cases to ensure that, the itinerary times are sometimes adjusted but we strive to still allow time for each segment. Thanks again for your review and I hope you took the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sites and take great pictures. All the best.

We booked our island tour with Sonny Liston. Booking was easy and we added the parasailing (which they were not aware of when we got to St. Thomas) through their website.
They were easy to find at the cruise ship terminal and were just where they said they would be.
Our driver was "Taxi Love" and while he enjoyed his job, the audio system was extremely loud. Several of us had our fingers in our ears and he was asked to turn it down. A lady sitting next to me (who said she is hard of hearing) even stated it must be loud because she could hear it.
He was very knowledgeable about the island and gave us a lot of info. He picked us up from the beach exactly on time but the ride back to the ship was awful.
At least 2 people on the van get motion sickness. He was going so fast around curves and up and down hills that they almost got sick. The music and audio system were cranked up even louder. It was so distorted, you could hardly understand him.
Don't get taken in when he makes the stop and you can have your pic taken with the donkey ($2 per person the man charges AFTER you take a picture with YOUR camera).
Because of the loud system and the way he drove, I can only give the 2 starts because the trip was not enjoyable.
