Beautiful tour of island, volvano, plantation etc very informative. And Stan our guide was truly kind and hospitable ensuring I felt better when I was getting car sick. I Recommend to everyone. Only thing beware of the sales lady on the right at the top of Mourne Hill, she is very dishonest! Otherwise have a fantastic and unforgettable trip.

Very enjoyable tour, it was extra special getting away from the large cruise ship tours into a small group. The guide was very good and put a lot of effort into making our day memorable. I would recommend this tour for both value and content.

The tour guide was good an we learned about St.Lucia however it was not as good as we hoped, too much driving, no lunch and repetitive on the way back, most other tours included land AND sea. Overall it was a bit disappointing.

The tour was essentially a half day driving tour of St Lucia. We stopped only once or twice briefly for pictures. The fishing village was just a 10min bathroom break. The plantation was a disappointment as well. It was a very brief "this is how we open the coconut and coffee bean" Do something else

Our tour was amazing- a great day filled with breathtaking views! Unfortunately, we ran out of time and were not taken to the waterfall as promised in the tour description. However, I would still book with Viator again for my next trip!
