What people are saying about Castries

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.

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!

Personal and professional. Was the best tour during our Caribbean holiday!
