WHAT A GODSEND!!! Denny is the man and truly added a forever memorable experience to our entire trip in St. Lucia. (Yes, a full-day tour with Denny will have you missing St. Lucia before you even leave). From pickup to dropoff, Denny was so attentive, personable and such a great spirit. Ladies, allow me to disclose, Denny is also a professional photographer (took the best pics for us ). Ughhh it was so much fun traveling with Denny all day. Let me tell you how sweet of a man he is, my friend got road sick (the hills in St. Lucia made us feel nauseous during longer rides) It was pouring rain outside, and Denny exited the car, covered my friend from the rain, all while allowing her to vomit on the roadside until she felt better. She told me to thank him a billion times. Throughout the trip, Denny was so informative; be prepared, you just might get a quiz at the end of the day . We miss you Denny. Until next time. Definitely recommended, and thank me later

The tour with Dwayne was great. He picked us up in front of the port terminal and told us a lot about the island and its history. I touched a snake for the first time in my life when we were in the snake village. He drove with us to the waterfalls before the other tourist buses arrived. So we had the waterfall there to ourselves. That was great! We were also on the beach but the waves were too high for us to bathe. We dropped the sulfur springs because we didn't want to go there in a huge crowd. The car was very clean and I would go with Dwayne again anytime. An entertaining, correct, friendly driver. We did tours on other islands that were miserable. The tour with Dwayne was perfect.

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.

Dannyboy is as charismatic as they come! As a solo traveller, this tour was a great intro to Saint Lucia, its history, its culture, & its picturesque landscapes. You essentially hit up some of the island's top landmarks with a guide who is extremely welcoming, very knowledgable, & witty - there's nothing better! I thoroughly enjoyed myself & would highly recommend.

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.
