    Joese is the best! Greeted us with a hug and one the most positive attitudes one can experience. Extremely knowledgable about the island and its history. Knows where to go and how to have a good time. There should be a six star rating. Love this guy!

    We arrived in St.Maarten on June 10, 2019, excited and ready for a fun day. Got off the ship. Looked for our tour guide. NO WHERE INSITE! Checked with other tours to see it they knew this Company. No one could help. Finally, we found three ladies from SMK tours. Theyvknew him and just rolled their eyes. They told us the gentlemen who ran this tour was extremely unreliable and had left others stranded. We asked if they had any availability on their tours - they did not. After about an hour, we found no one to help us get on another tour - everything booked. One of the ladies from SMK Tours called a person they occasionally used and asked him if he had time to take us on a short tour. HE HAD THE TIME! Howard arrived about 10 minutes later and took the 6 of us on a 4.5 hour tour - Orient Beach for swimming, Maho Beach to see the jet plane land right over us, Marigot for shopping and back to the ship - all for $30 per couple! Of course, he was generously paid a wonderful gratuity at the end of the day. THANK YOU - Howard! Thank you - SMK TOURS!

    We loved our tour private with Jose. He was very knowledgeable about the island. We stopped in St Maarten as part of a cruise. My kids loved hearing his stories and as a result want to go back on vacation to the island. Great experience!

    I have travelled to St Maarten many times before but my travelling companion hadn’t - hence the trip.The tour gave an excellent view of the island taking in both the Dutch and French sides. The guide was excellent sharing personal stories giving us an insight into island life as well as taking us to two stand out beaches. When we had to get back to the cruise ship He adjusted the trip leaving all five travellers with a taste of the island.

    We had the BEST time with Jose! He was so much fun and gave us lots of information as we went around the island. The places we visited were pretty cool and I would do it all over again!

    Very highly reccomended! Josie is from Houston TX though clearly loves the island and will exceed your expectations. He is talkative no doubt. If you want a quiter narrative then perhaps this is not your fancy. If you want a jovial, informative, knowledgeable, and caring host then he is your man!

    Jose provided the best experience we could have asked for. On St. Maarten. He has great knowledge about the island and his dynamic personality was an extra plus. Our children 13 and 8 years old also had a blast. Give Jose a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
