    This tour was really great to see the entire island. Our guide Terri was absolutely fantastic!!! The highlight was the first stop. The Amsterdam cheese shop was exceptional - the people were friendly, the tasting was amazing and their cheeses were out of this world. Unfortunately, I felt that the other 3 stops in terms of food were just okay. The lunch was too early (just after 11 am) and it was SO hot, it was impossible to eat hot food in an open air environment. The third stop was just weird - a hotel with a baked potato and cooked vegetables on it. The desserts were also a bit of a disappointment. However, we were able to see the entire island, had great stops to take pictures and would recommend the tour only because of that and our fantastic guide!

    Ankie was so cool and so knowledgable. And then there was the food and the drinks! Serg the driver has skills to get us through the lovely sites on both the Dutch and French sides of the island, as well as the remnants of Carnival. I'd probably take the tour again if/when I come back.

    GREAT tour. Lots of wonderful food, expert guide and comfortable transportation. Five sampling courses - Cheese w/wine, 2 crepes savory and sweet, main meal chicken, pork, slaw, potato salad and johnny cake, rum samples and French pastries. Each course - DELISH. Fantastic scenery. What more could you ask?

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide Candice was terrific. The information she gave us about the history and life on the island was great. The businesses and food she introduced us to were enjoyable and very tasty. We recommend this tour to anyone traveling to this beautiful island.

    The best thing about this tour is that we had the opportunity to see almost the entire island. On the other hand, we expected the variety of food to be substantial. For instance, at one of the most recognized French restaurants in Grand Case, we had a rum tasting unclear if the rum was infused in-house or purchased. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. However, when I noticed hair on the plate at our cheese tasting, she didn't even apologize or recognize the unprofessional vendor. Beautiful island but the cost of this tour was not worth it.
