Blackbeard's Castle was nice. They did have sales people in almost every room we entered. We felt the pressure to buy the whole time we were there. We liked the Amber Museum, too.

Black Beards' Castle was very interesting, lots to see and rum tasting too. Don't let the 99 steps down put you off. It's easy because there are Museums, shops and plenty to break up that trek down the hill (you drive to the top). Once at the bottom there are plenty of shops but don't forget to barter, it's half the fun.

We have been to St. Thomas 3 other times did the Black Beards Castle, enjoyed reading and learning about the pirates who traveled the Caribbean. Did the 99 steps back to town and then just some shopping and ate lunch in one of the cafes

Loved it! I could have even swam if I had brought a bathing suit. It was blackbeard's castle. After the tour, walked into town.

Nice pit stop, with a meandering walk through a nice plantation home leading to a Pizza Lunch that took the better part of 2 and 1/2 hours from start to finish. In conclusion, if we went again, would we take these tours? Well, you do need to stretch your legs on terrafirma and with this review, if you don't mind paying upwards of $100 each time each person,set your bar really, really low for time distribution, chaos and very poorly laid out, badly maintained, badly disorganized locale environs set amidst tropical settings......Go for it!!

The visit to the St. Peter Great House at the top of the island included great vistas and a nice garden. Blackbeard's Castle was well worth the trip despite the commercialism involved in walking down from the castle to the city. The walk was a part of the tour and we enjoyed the walk, but it seemed we were constantly going through a shop for rum or jewelry or something to buy. Still, it was a good tour and I recommend it for others. Once you reach the bottom of the walk, at street level, you are 2.5 miles from the ship, which we didn't have a problem. Some people did not want to walk, but taxis were not expensive.

Nice ride around the island to Greathouse & Blackbeard's Castle. Too expensive for what it was and it was marketed to people not able to walk the stairs down from the Castle. It also left you more than a mile from the ship without making that clear beforehand.
