    Great tour, driver was very friendly, only 4 people on the tour, Diamond Botanical garden was beautiful with many colorful flowers and an amazing waterfall. Pitons were nice to see and the drive through volcano was interesting.

    As in many of our Viator tours, the group had only four travelers. Our guide showed the many different aspects of the island. The most informative part of the tour was the visit to a banana plantation where we learned how the fruit was nurtured from sprout to packing for their trip to England. We experienced the sights, sounds and smells of the beaches, mountains, volcanoes, gardens, waterfalls, and Pitons of this lovely and friendly island. Although we had some delicious island bread, We felt the tour could have been extended 45 minutes to include a time to grab a snack or lunch. S and C

    No one at the docking point knew about the tour. It time to sort out where the tour organizer was and how we were going to get to the river tubing area. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and the stops he made were interesting. However, for the distance travelled, the tubing was short lived and a snooze, but refreshing. The tubing guides and managers were friendly and contentious. The guy with the punch really limited the amount he shared and took off once everyone had gotten serve. It would be good to add some celebration, perhaps some food and certainly more or a stop along the tubing area for a picnic and music.

    We had a terrific time on this tour. Sammy, our driver, was fun and friendly, filling us in on all the interesting sites and history of St. Lucia. In our van of 7 people, we traveled the very windy roads of St. Lucia, stopping at a banana plantation to taste "hot-off-the-bush" bananas - sweet and yummy. We also stopped in a local village where Sammy picked us up some delicious hot local bread. The sulfur springs were interesting, if not a bit smelly. It was fascinating to dip our hands in the creeks running with warm/hot water. And the botanical gardens were fantastic. Even the rain clouds couldn't put a damper on that visit. We had a wonderful day and got a good taste I think of what St. Lucia and it's friendly people are all about. My only recommendation would be to add an hour to the trip and allow a stop for lunch in a local restaurant. The trip was a bit long to not have a meal stop.
