This tour is highly recommended. While it is perhaps a touch pricier than other options, it is a great value and a lot of fun while being informative and educational too. You do and see A LOT in a 6-7 hour window, without feeling like you're rushing. It is a great way to see the western side of the island in one day. Dannyboy is fantastic and is genuinely interested in making sure you get the most out of your day. He is also a very skilled driver and expert pothole dodger, which is important in a place like St Lucia! This is the definition of experiences being more valuable than money. Do it.

After being canceled on at the last minute from another tour company I was scrambling to find a tour for the next morning. Luckily I was able to find Dannyboy. He called me the next morning because my booking was last minute and someone else was already booked. But he was still able to accommodate me and I was extremely grateful. It was my last day in Saint Lucia and I needed to see these sites. The tour was great. I feel like I learned so much. I got to do all the things I needed to do and then someone. Dannyboy was full of energy and information. It was a great day.

Brilliant Tour with Danny Boy! Danny is a great guide full of information on the history of St Lucia. He has a lovely positive personality which meant there was never a dull moment on our tour. he really took care of us and made us feel at ease. As Danny is a local we really felt like we were getting an insight into life on the island but also getting a proper tourist experience visiting several popular tourist destinations. Would definitely recommend Danny to anyone wanting a tour, Good Vibes!

Just book it!!! Dannyboy was absolutely amazing. The knowledge and experience of the local to show you around the wonderful island to second to none. He’s an absolute mine of information, friendly, his driving felt very safe and secure given certain windy roads. 10/10 definitely recommend.

Our guide Lennard brought us closer to the country and its people in his own way and showed us everything and explained it very well. He has taken care of our well-being and our safety. We had a very nice day and would always recommend the tour with lennard.
