    This was a wonderful way to discover St. Lucia. Our guide was very accomodating. Even when I wanted to go in the mud baths but the others in my tour did not he found a way to make it work so that they did something else and he came back for me in 1/2 hour. Whenever we wanted to stop he did. The tour ended up being just my family and one other person. I would definitely recommend this tour again for those who want to spend a great day in Soufriere.

    St. Lucia is a beautiful island but filled with treacherous and winding roads up the mountains and through the volcano. Our driver was good but drove a little too fast and a few folks got sick on the ride back down the mountains. Our guide could have been more knowledgeable but he chose to chat with the driver more than engage with the passengers.

    Wouldn't recommend, tour guides were wonderful but the tour was not. Pickup was late, tour did not take you everywhere that was listed.

    We enjoyed a great tour of beautiful St. Lucia with guide, William and driver, Phil. Our party of 7 shared a van with a family of 4. There were lots of photo opportunities along the way. We stopped at a roadside stand among a banana plantation where we sampled banana ketchup and BBQ sauce, etc., and received a lesson on the life cycle of the banana plants. We then continued on our journey to a small seaside village, then on to Soufrière and the Pitons. Be prepared for mountainous driving on switchback roads for 2 h each way. At the Pitons, we were given a tour of the active volcano site. You could also see where people were doing the mud/mineral baths, but we did not have time to partake. Next, we visited an active plantation where we learned about cocoa plants and how chocolate is made, sugar cane processing, sampled fresh coconut water and had a glass of fresh fruit juice. Return trip through windy roads, but beautiful scenery and views of the rainforest and ocean villages. We had no problem locating our guide as soon as we got off our cruise ship red golf shirt holding a sign with my name. Tour began approx. 8:30 a.m. and ended around 2:30 p.m. Would have been nice if tour included lunch or an option to stop for lunch on our own, as we were all getting very hungry by afternoon. All-in-all, a great informative tour of beautiful St. Lucia with a great tour guide and driver!

    Our cruise ship anchored and we got on the first tender possible. After fighting all the chaos at the terminal and not finding our Viator contact, we found out at the information booth that our tour had left without us !! We then found a taxi tour which turned out to be just fine. Had a nice time in St. Lucia although were very frustrated in the beginning trying to find our tour.

    Excellent guide, Good tour with lots of great scenic stops. The botanical garden and waterfall were worthwhile. Would be nice to have some stops on the way back instead of driving the whole way back.

    This was an amazing trip with Samuel. It turned into a private tour but we didn't miss anything out. The sights were incredible and Samuels knowledge 2nd to none .

    This tour gives a good overview of St Lucia. The driver was knowledgeable, the vehicle clean and well kept. The trip included visiting the volcano and also Morne Coubaril Estate, which is a representation of a cocoa plantation. The return trip is the same as to the destination which I found a little boring and could be improved by the driver sharing more information and talking on the way back to the city.
