We took a private tour which was fantastic. The tour operator is BUMPIING TOURS our guide was Levi Baron. He was fantastic with helping the older folks the weak swimmers do all the activities on his tour if they wanted. He was very knowledgeable about the different plants, the Island folklore and places to visit on the Island. He avoided the crowds and took us everywhere. I would suggest this tour to everyone and when he says good secure sandals he means this. There are lots of rocks and you need a thick sole and good traction.
Probably the most beautiful Island. We did a tour thrrough Harod's. His tour was the ultimate tour. By far the best tour we have ever taken. He was very helpful and knowledgeable and we saw the island in a way that would not have been possible through a ship tour. He provides transportation back to the ship via a boat and we saw the entire cost from the Pitons to the ship. Very nice tour.
We took a tour to Orient Beach thru the ship. This was an OK tour. We left at 10:30 and returned at 2:30 and lunch was provided. It is a beautiful beach but I would have enjoyed more time there or an earlier start to the day. Next time I will try shopping. I dont feel I really got a feel for the Island. I want to go back.
