Enjoyed the tour and Fabian was very informative guide. Lots to see and do with no rush for activities. Only downside thought the banana tasting would be at a persons plantation site and rum tasting would be at a distillery not by a road side. Disappointed as we did in another country which was exceptional.

Dylan was an excellent driver and guide with a pristine car and excellent driving skills that made Island roads seem smooth lol. I really appreciated the called Piton lager waiting for me after climbing Tet Paul!

If you are going to choose this tour be sure to be very specific what you would like to see and do and be sure tour company confirms your choices.

Super nice, memorable, unforgettable.

We had a great guide, I recommend Thomas, very kind, smiling and very good knowledge of the country. We had a very nice day

Great tour and best option to spend a day on St. Lucia!
