    There are no words to describe the hospitality shown to us by this group! We had a personalized tour of the island for just the two of us, and it was the perfect idea to get the lay of the land for the rest of our stay. Ricky and Candy showed us where to shop, eat, beach, as well as trees and the nature specific to St Martin. We also used the service another day because they took such great care of us.

    We took our tour through Diederick SXM Tours. I would highly recommend this group and in particular our tour guide Ricky. We wanted to know some history of the island as well as some scenic highlights. He took us to places off the beaten path, told history of the island, the struggles to rebuild after the recent hurricane, and took us to a local place for lunch. He was very courteous and entertaining a well as informative and at the end of the day we felt like we had made a new friend. Again highly recommended. Some highlights were Grand Case, Fort Louis, Orient Beach, Scooby’s for lunch, and the town of Marigot.

    When booking our trip to St. Maarten, I was in charge of the activities. As New Yorkers and coming from the land who invented social distancing, we only wanted private tours AWAY from people. Well, I decided to book a private island tour. Diederick communicated with me several times as to what and what we did not want to see. When and where to stop for lunch etc. Then, the day of the tour. Diederick and his beautiful wife Candia come to pick us up. They work very well together like peanut butter and jelly. Diederick, is extremely knowledgeable of all things St Maarten. He explained all of the history of the French and Dutch side. He also explained all of the plants, trees and uses for them as well. He also brought us to local beaches that are off the beaten track. I had wanted to stop for lunch at a certain place but it was close. Well, we found an unexpected gem. If local people like it, it must be good. I had terrific conch fritters. Candia seeing I was disabled, took special care of me helping me. I really appreciate all they did for us. We could have had a free tour from our hotel but I would have never had the pleasure of meeting Diederick and Candia.

    Diederick the tour company never showed up. Talking with the supervisor there they never showed up the day before either. The supervisor managed to get us another private cab and driver who was excellent. He is George Phipps Taxi 0096--- 1-721-586-1085. George is an excellent guide fun to be with and very personable and accommodating. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed with George.

    We got to see everything we wanted to see on this customizable tour. There was plenty of time to see sites, learn about the island, and do some snorkeling. Great deal.

    Had a great day with Paul. Very informative and fun!!! Took us everywhere we wanted to go and more! Very patient and accommodating!!! Highly recommend doing this tour. Did just what we requested. And his recommendations were awesome. My husband, son and I will not soon forget our day with Paul on St Maarten.

    Was pretty fed up with the hotel and their bungling of our tour requests so I decided to directly contact one of the tour companies found on the hotels brochure. Hotel said they were closed Saturday but a call that morning showed they were indeed open and happy to help us! We booked a private tour of St. Maarten. We were shocked when the owner Deiderick and his wife Can showed up themselves to takes us out. These two were amazing. They showed us all the highlights from both the Dutch and French sides and to us to a Lolo (Locals) restaurant for lunch. I was on a mad search to find a particular spice that I'd purchased on cruise in St Maarten two years ago and was shocked when Can managed to find the place for me. All in all it was an amazing trip with two fantastic tours guides. (They even let me force drinks on them.) Tons of laughter, tons of fun and they made the experience of seeing the island all the greater! If you're planning a trip into St. Maarten Diedertick SXM tours is definitely the company to use!

    We found this tour browsing Expedia but decided to book it directly through Diederick’s website. The whole process was easy, safe and we had great communication with the vendor. The experience in Saint Martin was amazing. I would gladly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see this beautiful island and enjoy it the way we did. I traveled with a 12 year old and a mobility challenged adult and Diederick was able to accommodate us and was patient and very informative. He tools us to great places where we could see the beautiful island and all it has to offer. He recommended a great restaurant for us to enjoy the local cuisine and took us to an amazing beach. The overall tour was great and we were very satisfied. If you are ever in Saint Martin, please call Diederick; you will not regret it.

    Our driver took us throughout the entire island. And stopped at the greatest lookouts. He was very knowledgeable about the island and what is where. Very accommodating as we needed to stop at a grocery store and he took us to a very large one. Drinks, water we're available to us all day. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants their own tour with no strangers.

    Visiting this Island from a Cruise Ship - wanted to maximize the time and not miss out seeing both the French and Dutch Sides.Ronald our excellent driver could not have been more accommodating, with a good knowledge of the areas and beaches to visit. You can determine your own time schedule at every stop,Would definitely recommend this option.Side note: although the passenger van was not the newest model on the market,The guide more than compensated .
