IF you first arrive to the island, i recommend Godfrey's tour because he will show you everywhere on the island, that way you can decide to go back to where you like the most. we love the way he explains every little thing you pass by even when the random house was built. we love the banana daiquiri from the mountain top so much that we kept drinking it everywhere we went. he give you three hours to swim at the beach of your choice, Magan bay or Coki beach. Magen bay is the best of all but Coki beach is the best if you want to snockel. This guy is probably the most experienced on the island. AND THE PRICE IS SO WORTH IT.

Godfrey is the man! He struck a perfect balance of informing us of the Island's history, struggles, and what local life is like. We also had an ample amount of free-time. He took precautions against COVID-19, offering us hand sanitizer after every stop, enforcing masks, and ensuring that we were all hydrated throughout the day. Godfrey is a perfect representation of the locals, kind, open minded, resilient, and funny. We really enjoyed our tour, and would recommend anyone to do this as their first activity on St. Thomas. It's much cheaper than taking a taxi around, and you'll be able to see all of the beaches, sights, restaurants, etc. From there you will be able to craft the perfect itinerary for an unforgettable trip - and it all starts with Godfrey!

This truly should be the #1 thing to do if staying on St. Thomas. I can't recommend it enough, especially for the price.

We had Godfrey himself pick us up from our resort in the morning. You ride along in an open air taxi truck and he drives around the entire island giving you insight on the island's history and attractions. The stop at the top of the mountain gives you breathtaking views of St. Thomas and all the virgin islands and Godfrey is very knowledgeable about them all. Multiple stops along the way with performances, shopping, and stunning views, then he dropped us off at Magen's beach for a 2 hour swim. The drinks are a cooler of water or soft drinks (non-alcoholic). He dropped us back off at our hotel well after the advertised 6hrs and we tipped him generously. I think he's under charging for this full day excursion so be prepared if prices go up soon. This is a must do activity! Also, family friendly.

I should give a 0, as it never happened. Sent multiple messages on Trip Advisor and their website, as reservations had the wrong time. Also spoke on phone twice. No response. When we landed there were two gates and had no info on where to meet them. Other Trip Advisors tours gave us info on the Trip Advisor site. We never left on tour as they left without us.

Update: we did get a prompt refund raising it from 0 to a 2

The trip started ten minutes late. While waiting for the tour operator Sunny Liston pulled up with music blaring and loaded a full truck up with guests. Seemed like a very festive atmosphere. When our driver pulled up I had instant regret because not only was he late, it was just the three of us on the tour. He took us to the downtown area which was filled with high pressure pushy sales people. When I asked if we could leave early (since it was just us) he said he had to wait so they could try to get more passengers for the tour. So we sat and sat and sat for the next two hours. There was a small open market close by so we went there for 20 min or so but the 2 1/2 hours was about two hours too long. St Thomas has been devastated by the hurricane damage and this seemed to be the focus of the tour. The mountain top shop was very nice though, just be careful of the daiquiri, 151 rum is nothing to mess with. Megan’s Bay was awesome though, very nice. Food is a bit pricey though ($14 burgers). This is absolutely the beach you want to be at, pay the extra $5. One odd thing we experienced was that the driver told us that he gets charged to exit the beach, almost as if he wanted us to pay. I saw $5 exchange between the driver and gate person. He floored it out of the gate, as if he was upset. He then took us to a very poor part of the island and showed us Coral Park and the other two beaches there. Very dirty, definitely not some place you want to be...could have skipped this. Overall we were disappointed. If you’re going to St Thomas stay with water/beach activities for now. The island itself is a mess.

My hubby and I enjoyed our day tour. We got picked up at our hotel and got dropped off for some shopping in town. After that we were picked up and started our sight seeing tour. We had ice cold drinks available all through out the tour on our ride. Godfrey showed us and educated us on St Thomas and it’s history and culture. It rained a little during the tour but he made sure we all were comfortable and dry inside. After visiting Mountain Top and multiple vista point stops, we stopped at Sapphire Beach for some swimming, snorkeling and cool drinks. After that, he dropped everyone off group by group and eventually dropped us off at our hotel. It was a great day and a great tour and made our time on the island very memorable.

At first, I felt that I was skeptical about this company as I thought that the person with whom I spoke to on the telephone seemed to me to be a bit frustrated with my many questions about my tour day. However, I was promptly picked up for a shortened shopping excursion in Charlotte Amalie. For the following two (2) hours, we explored Mountain Top, Drake’s Seat, Skyline Drive, and more. One should definitely be ready to take tons of pictures! The panoramas of all of these places were fantastic! For another two (2) hours, we had the option to chose from Magens Bay Beach, Coki Beach, or Sapphire Beach. For an extra five dollars ($5.00), I went to Magens Bay Beach, and the water and the scenery were out of this world! Next, the driver pointed out the other beaches and sites to us before he took me back to my hotel. I also enjoyed the daiquiris from Mountain Top (I would just advise people to be prepared to wait on a long line), and my fellow passengers from all over the country were very friendly.

Our tour guide was very friendly and had plenty of free snacks and drinks for everyone. He did a great job navigating the streets of St. Thomas and provided a lot of information about St. Thomas. The tour had some great views and will take you to one of three beaches. Great value!

We were schedule for the tour at 11:30 but our cruise ship changed our departure time earlier and we knew we wouldn't make it back to the ship on time. We found Godfrey at the pick up location and he agreed to take us at the 9:30 time. This was important because this is a 6 hour plus tour.

The vehicle is an covered open vehicle and Godfrey give a nice narration during the four of historical and important sights along the way. We first stopped at the shopping area along with an open market. We left after about an hour for a beautiful ride to the highest point and an opportunity to buy a banana drink. We continued our sightseeing tour and then had a 2 hour stop at beautify Megan's Beach. Godfrey picked us up again and continued the narrated sightseeing tour before dropping us off back at the port.

Godfrey does a great job for a very reasonable price. He seems to run a little behind on his initial pick up but he saved the day by letting us go early and his trip is a great value. By the way he has coolers on the truck with plenty of bottled water and soft drinks.

The tour group canceled at the last minute and offered a refund, which I’m. Waiting for. The morning of the tour I received a text message telling me they had to cancel because they were working on their taxes. They offered to schedule for a later date or offer a refund. I then got an email thanking me for my refund request and stating that it is under review.
