Overview

A trip to Sint Maarten would not be complete without a ride aboard a classic vintage European Open Top Double Decker Bus and past by beautiful landmarks, and relishing magnificent views of the sea. Enjoy the sea breeze at the photo-stops on the top island’s highlights, such as Orient Bay, Marigot, Maho Beach and Philipsburg.

The tour was not bad. Saw the island and learned a little. Don't go on this tour if it is a National Holiday on the island. Nothing is open. The rain came and went several times on the tour. It seemed that on this tour...More
