  • This was an outstanding tour of the Island! Ralph was our driver for the day, so personable, so informative, so polite and gracious. This is the way to see St. Lucia, up close and personable. Our stops along the way just added to the flavor of the Island.
    Thanks for the fun day!

  • Absolutely loved this tour! Especially the Banana everything sampling spot. The tour guide was so patient and took us to a local spot to eat afterwards, the food was amazing!

  • We were 2 couples from 2 ships landing on the same day booked through Viator. Our driver/guide was Cherris who was excellent, probably the best guide of all those we had on our 6 island cruise. He told us a lot about this beautiful island and we managed to see a great many of the must-see highlights in a day.

  • Bernard was a fabulous tour guide and the tour of the island was wonderful. My only disappointment was that I originally booked this tour for 10 of us. A month or so later, another couple booked it and cross-referenced their booking with ours so that they would travel on the tour with us. Some time later, two other couples did the same, with one booking just days before the actual tour. On the tour date, the couple that booked just shortly after us was told they were on another bus. It ended up that they were the only ones in that van and our van was pretty packed. This reflects on Viator and not on the tour guides.

  • Remember to bring your swimsuit and towels!!
    We had Raphael as our driver for our St Lucia Island day tour. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island, and the flora and fauna. We enjoyed stops at the Black Water Pool of Sulpher Springs Park, the Toraille waterfall, and many other stops so we could snap beautiful photos! And the provided lunch was very tasty, and had an amazing view looking at the beach and the Pitons.
    He even knew some friends that had an open fire oven going, and Raphael got us some yummy casaba bread to taste. It was still nice and warm.
    It was a nice day learning about St Lucia!

  • Good overall drive around the island. Don't forget your swim suit or change of clothing for mud bath and waterfalls we did. Not much historical commentary if that's what you're looking for. Excellent driver--highly competent and professional, safely taking you around to the island highlights.

  • Nice 6 hour tour of St. Lucia. There was 5 of us on the tour. Lunch was good and plentiful. Nice restaurant with a beautiful view of the beach and the Pitons. for the stop at the island's largest banana plantation the van just pulled over to the side of the road and showed us some banana trees. You do not get to tour a banana plantation. Beer, soda, and water were offered from a cooler in the back of the van. If you wanted you could bathe in the sulphur springs and cover yourself in mud. Only one in our group did. It was an enjoyable tour and less expensive than the tours offered by the cruise line.

  • Our guide/driver Bernard was on time and safely drove us in a nice comfortable vehicle to all the places we were promised. He played a variety of music for us and was a great conversationalist. St. Lucia is a beautiful island and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We paid for a lunch to be included but it was not so we are asking Viator for a 10 per person refund. Bernard quoted us with that price had we wanted to have lunch along the way.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of St Lucia with Bernard. He was there to see that we enjoyed the tour. Enjoyed our lunch at the seashore with view of Piton and sea. The rum tasting was fun. Seeing the beautiful island was something we could not have done on our own. It was very carefree day. Thank you Bernard. We know you love your island and are proud of St Lucia.

  • We were met outside the cruise terminal by our guide Bernard. There were 7 people in our group. He loaded us into an air conditioned large version of a minivan, loaded with local beer, soft drinks and water. We were taken all over the island. Stopped at a small roadside stand to sample all things Banana. Bananas right off the tree, Banana Hot Sauce, Banana Ketchup, Banana Barbeque Sauce, and a large assortment of local rum. Then off to a spot to view The Pitons, Petit Piton and Gros Piton. Then off to the park by the volcano for a dip in the 100 degree Sulphur Springs, and a mud bath. Then he shuttled us to a nearby waterfall, very cool to rinse off all the mud. After drying off we were taken to a waterfront restaurant overlooking The Pitons for a fantastic lunch of local cuisine. Then we headed back to the Ship, took about an hour to get back. All in all about 6 hours. Can't say enough about Bernard. Great driver, that knows where to take you, and knows every inch of the island. Very nice person, and if you have a choice, by all means, ask for Bernard....
