What people are saying about Castries Quarter

John is just great, the tour was perfect! I recommend the tour!

We had a private tour for two which was great as John just showed us everything we wanted to see and know. He stopped at a banana plantation, we were "bird watching" in the rainforest, we tried & bought homemade "St. Lucia Coconut Cream Liquer" and "St. Lucia Banana Cream Liqueur", he stopped for us above Marigot Bay and bought us a coconut to drink and eat. It was a pleasure. John is very open-minded and would have loved to show us more of the island! The tour is better recommended from "Castries", since the journey from Soufrière is over 1 hour (road is very winding). However, if you don't have the hotel in Castries, pick-up there is ok. I would do it again and again! John was great, helpful and friendly. He showed us a banana plantation, the rainforest and bird watching, he bought us near the Marigot Bay one coconut to taste, it was wonderful. I really recommend the tour! Thanks

a well-organised and every enjoyable trip

The organisation of the trip was very efficient and all those concerned (the guide and driver on the mini-bus and the guides for the climb) were friendly and competent. The climb itself was strenuous (mainly because of the heat and humidity) - it was a little disappointing not to have a more extensive view at the top. The descent took longer than the ascent - perhaps because of the slipperiness of the rocks and tree-roots. We were taken for lunch to a restaurant above Soufriere with splendid views of the Pitons (I had expected nothing more than a packed lunch on the climb itself). Altogether a highly enjoyable day out and one I would strongly recommend.

John and his brother were the highlight of an already great trip!

Excellent all-around! John was a super guide, and he was very flexible, as we wanted to turn a half-day trip into a full-day excursion. The rainforest reserve was gorgeous, and the Tet Paul nature trail was equally breathtaking. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Amazing experience.Will do Petit Peton next time!

Amazing experience!It was harder than I expected,but definetly worth it!Will definetly book another tour,when we'll back next time! Thank you!

Amazing guide that showed us the best places around! Truly recommend!!! Jeanne
