    Spent too much time picking up and dropping off passengers. This was listed as a shore excursion so all pick ups should have been at the port. Driver was taking us to another stop to change buses but we ended up staying on the same bus and the driver became the guide also. Don't know what happened to the original guide. We didn't see everything on the list and he took us to some uncomfortable places. At the end, he dropped us off at a place we weren't supposed to go to get on another bus to get back to port. The tour was scheduled for 3 hours. Because of all the pick ups/drop offs it lasted 5 hours causing us to miss another appointment. Very unprofessional.

    Very disappointed in the tour. Driver was supposed to meet us at the ship, which he did, but b ecause it was pouring he didn't get out of his van and we didn't know where he was located. Freeport was destroyed by the hurricane in October and it didn't look like it was in the process of being rebuilt. We were supposed to go to a Perfume Factory, which we did but a member of the tour was allergic to the Perfume so we opted not to get out of the van. We then went to a Candle Factory which was basically a store that had candles you could buy and other miscellaneous junk. Would not recommend this tour. We did go to a beautiful Garden but because of the rain it took away from the atmosphere. There were people there selling their goods and beautiful birds. Not worth the money.

    Well, I don't know where to begin. We got there on time and waited for our tour bus. No one was there to guide us until 10 minutes after the time expected to meet the tour. We were shoved into a different bus which transported passengers to their hotels, etc. This was time taken from my time paid for the tour. I did not like the experience at all! My children were extremely disappointed and so was I. Won't be taking this tour again for sure!

    My experience was fantastic. The tour guide was very considerate and knowledgeable. The only negative comment was that I was unable to call before I got to Freeport, so my regular shuttle was not there to pick us up. We took another company bus and showed the driver our ticket, and he brought us to our tour shuttle. They were waiting for us. I highly recommend this tour.

    We took the one-day trip to and from Ft. Lauderdale and Freeport. I think it was worth it as we definitely got a good understanding of what was on the island if we wanted to go back and spend more time. On the Balearia ferry from Ft. Lauderdale, passengers can purchase a round-trip bus ticket to and from the city center once they are on the boat for something like $11 however this would not take us to the different places we were able to see on our viatour half-day excursion. We traveled during the off-season so we had the van and the driver all to ourselves and thus more liberty to spend as much or as little time as we wanted at the different stops. Our driver picked us up right at the port where our ferry came in, near where the cruise liners dock. There are also other options once passengers arrive at the port with cheap shuttles, etc., however they do not cover all the different places you can see with the viatour option. I enjoyed it and would recommend viatour to anyone on a day trip to Freeport.

    excellent guide, tour ran a little behind to start, but was very good. Nice bus.

    We got off to a rough start when we left the ship to meet the driver to pick us up and were told by employees of the company who were there for another tour that we were supposed to be there at 8 but I was told 8:45 am on the phone the day before. They did remedy the issue quickly and we were picked up by a shuttle bus who took us to rendezvous with our group (they were still in the middle of picking up people from different hotels so we didn't miss anything). Our tour guide/drive was Snake and he was full of information about the island and places we were going. The gardens were beautiful and the tour there very interesting. We got dumped on by rain when we first arrived but that is obviously not in anyone's control. To those who are cruising, there are two options, a morning and an afternoon tour. The tour took longer than it said so I am glad we booked for the morning as we may not have made it back to the ship in time had we taken the afternoon tour. People on island time are not as concerned about timetables.

    Great trip. The guide was very informative, gardens were lovely and the guide there was terrific. Very happy with our choice of this tour.
