We had the best time on this tour! Jose was a great tour guide. He told us where we were driving, let us explore the stops and showed us some really cool spots. Totally worth our time and money. Will absolutely come here again!
Andre was an incredible tour guide! Took us to all the best spots. Definitely worth taking this keep tour!!!
Andre was very friendly, fun, and informative the entire time. He drove well and was very funny always saying something with a smile. He gave us advice for when we move here and showed us all the important places. Also let us feed some local iguanas which was cool
We decided to do the private jeep tour to skip the crowds. Andre our tour guide was wonderful! We toured the entire island while learning the history of the island. Would highly recommend Andre as your tour guide!
I recommend this tour. The Jeep was in good condition and our guide Rubin was excellent. He went above and beyond to see that we had a good time. The only downside was that when it was time to go to the beach he dropped us off at the nude beach. I would have preferred somewhere else. Its not pleasant sitting on a beach with 100 really old naked people. The most incredible part was the butterflies. They were everywhere. Thousands of them. When we got back to where we started they quickly left and we didn't get the chance to tip Rubin, so make sure to tip him sooner. It was unfortunate because we thought he did an excellent job.
I love the tour the walking in the water and the total experience was great the tour guides was the boom
Edwin was a great tour guide. My boyfriend & I enjoyed him immensely. Would most definitely recommend & even come back!
When our planned shore excursion was canceled with no notice, Blue Bubbles SXM was recommended to us as an alternative. Not knowing anything about what we were getting into, we hopped aboard their shuttle and took the quick ride to the shop. We decided to go on the guided Jeep island tour with stops at various beaches. Our group of 6 people required 2 Jeeps, and thankfully someone in our party was feeling adventurous enough to drive. Kevon was our guide for the afternoon and did a wonderful keeping in contact with us in the follow Jeep via walkie-talkie. He pointed out the scenic and historic tour highlights as we drove along, stopped at Maho Beach so we could experience the planes landing immediately over head, gave us a fun off-road experience as we traveled to a more private beach, and even took us to several of his personal favorite "off-the-beaten-path" spots. The final view of the day was absolutely breathtaking!! All that was then topped off by a refreshing glass of their delicious Rum Punch at the end of the tour. For a day that started with a disappointment, Kevon and Blue Bubbles delivered an excellent experience. Definitely recommend the Jeep tour...their other tour options (ATVs & Jet Skis) look amazing as well. Give the team at Blue Bubbles SXM a chance...you will be thrilled that you did!!
Ruben was our guide and he was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun! We would highly recommend this tour!!!!
Jose was amazing !!! Prez was great !!! Loved this tour. Such good vibes. You even get run punch at the end!
