Went on the double decker tour as an excursion. The driver and tour guides where very nice and information, most of the tour was told via head sets, that did provide a little bit of disconnect from the guides. I thought the places they took...More

We've been to St. Maarten several times but on shore excursions so we never got a chance to tour the island. This took us to several stops along the way thru the island. We hit some traffic in the morning then things cleared up. Toppers...More

Booked this excursion through Royal Caribbean. The guides were not personable and the trolley speaker system did not work. So basically, we just sat on a trolley and waited in traffic. Traffic congestion is out side their control but they could have tried to fix...More

This tour is primarily for cruise-ship passengers, so it picks up at the Cruise Terminal in Juancho Yrausquin Boulevard - a 20-minute walk from the centre of Phillipsburg. Owing to security at the terminal, you get picked up just inside the exit gate. You need...More

We recently did this tour around St. Martin. The tour itself is great, stopping at various locations on the dutch side, toppers, the cheese place, an ice cream and carousel stop, and the airport. We even got to see a plane land at the airport,...More

We really enjoyed this tour. The only downside was that due to the extensive hurricane damage, we were unable to go into the French side of the Island though there was plenty to see on the Dutch side. There were stops at Topper's Rhum factory,...More

It's not that bad when you sit on it. Having young people to help out would not have made any difference to the tour content. If they concentrated more on telling you about the sights and what to look out for and less... More

Hello, This tour is usually sold-out by the cruise ships, so to guarantee your seat we would advice to book it at the Shore Excursion Desk of the ship you are in. The price inside the ship is the same as online or inland... More
