    Words can't express how amazing and informative our tour of the entire island was. First having a private tour for a family of 8 (kids and adults) was a life saver. We went our own schedule and did what the family wanted which was nice. We wanted to go swimming last at Orient Beach and he made it happen. We got to the boat within plenty of time to do souvenir shopping (which is not great in general).

    My friend and I recently booked this private tour of St Maarten. We are of a "gentle age" and we thought it would be fun to be pampered for an afternoon. We were very fortunate to have Domingo as our guide. First, he called me at home after I booked. He wanted to get to know his passengers: our requests for the tour, our beverage choices, etc. That was a nice touch even before we arrived in St Maarten. Domingo was waiting for us at the meeting place after our ship docked. He created an itinerary, based on our requests. Of course, we wanted all the usual tourist places, including Maho Beach, where the planes fly overhead. Domingo even printed out the plane schedule for that day. He thought of everything! A side note to anyone thinking of going there....the beach itself is very small, the area is extremely crowded because everyone wants to do what you are doing. We stayed for two plane arrivals, about 15 minutes, and it was time to move on!
    Domingo gave us the history of the island, both the Dutch and French sides. It is nice to know that both sides live in harmony. He also talked a lot about Hurricane Irma. Effects of the hurricane are still so evident on the island as we drove around.
    We visited all the places we originally requested and Domingo took us to additional places, including look-out vistas for great photo opportunities.
    I cannot compliment Domingo enough for his attention toward us during our tour. He is personable, funny and thoughtful. If you book this tour you will love spending a few hours with him. Thank you, Domingo for sharing your island with us. We had an absolutely delightful day!

    Clyde was our driver - he was very informative and flexible - got to see everything we wanted to see- from the look out points to swimming in Orient Bay to planesighting in Orient Bay. Drinks were included on this trip. highly recommend for a 1st time visitor to St. Martin.

    Private tour for our family group of seven was excellent. Our guide customized our tour for what we wanted to see in the time frame allotted. Our grandchildren especially enjoyed feeding the iguanas and watching the planes land.

    Domingo was a great tour guide. He helped us personalized our trip for what we wanted to do and see. We started out going to Bobby's Marina to get our passport stamped. We loved the Marina with the quaint shops and eateries. Then off to downtown Philipsburg for shopping. Found some neat finds with the vendors. Then to Maho Beach to watch the planes fly overhead. We had a nice lunch there. Then over to Orient Beach for our last stop. Domingo had an ice chest with waters, beer and wine for us. He gave us some history of the island and explained the Dutch and French side and how it became separated and about the annual festivals. We hade a very enjoyable and relaxed tour in the very spacious air conditioned van. We were happy to be able to go at our own pace and allowed us the privacy and personal tour. Domingo was very helpful and made us feel comfortable. My husband and I highly recommend D and A Tour Service.

    A very nice excursion. Our tour guide Domingo, was knowledgeable and friendly. His van was clean, comfortable and good air conditioning. We were able to see some beautiful scenery and take pictures, ate lunch in Marigot, saw the butterfly farm, and stopped at Maho Beach. We determined how long to stay at each place we wanted to go. Overall, very good and would recommend.
