From St. Lucia: Majestic Gros Piton Hiking Day Trip

Periodically, the trees give way to breathtaking vistas of the emerald-green island and the too-blue waters of the Caribbean. Guides are mandatory, but full of knowledge. The caves once used as shelters by freedom fighters of the Brigand war, brightly colored tropical birds and lush vegetation that includes giant gommiers (used to make canoes), the smaller swizzlestick tree ( used to make swizzle sticks) and "peeling tourists" - trees with flaky brown bark that looks painfully familiar to anyone who's fallen asleep on the beach without sunblock.

What people are saying about Castries Quarter

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.

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!
