St. Thomas City Tour Excursion Reviews
The driver was interested that we knew where to purchase items we needed. Was very helpful to help us find a sandwich and drink when we were hungry and took us personally into a sandwich shop to be certain we would not make the tour late.
Nice tour but we would make sure the tour guide spoke better English couldn't understand him, but he tried, good guy

We did the BEST OF ST. THOMAS excursion. This is an absolute beautiful island. With this excursion we were taken to the Great Mountain Top where we were able to get a view of Magen's Bay and a delicious Banana Daiquari which was worth the $12. It was very tasty. We were also able to get some souvenirs, but they were rather pricey. We stopped at another part where we got more of a view of St. Thomas and St. John and there were vendors selling souvenirs at much better prices. We got all our souvenirs here. Then we went to the Great House and Botanical Gardens where we were given a complimentary virgin and alcoholic Rum Punch which went down great. You served yourself and were able to go back for more. The views were breathtaking. The temperature was 81 degrees and it felt great. This is basically the temperature year round. I could definitely move there. This was definitely my favorite port of call on this cruise. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and very informative throughout the excursion. I would definitely recommend this excursion, especially if you don't want to do a lot of walking or sitting at the beach.
Standard tour. Some view stops too short. Coral World very interesting. Guide knowledgeable.
We took a city tour from an open air truck and our tour guide was FANTASTIC. He would stop at various points and let you get out to take pictures, he took us to the highest point which was breathtaking to look down on the ocean, you could see other cruise ships, etc. Good choice for us.
A good tour but the beach would have been better.
These ships make a fortune off these trips. Way to expensive for what you get!!! Wish I had the money back for excursions on St Thomas and ST Maarten!! I was stupid and regret it. St Thomas was ok. It is more crowded at Megan's Beach than it used to be. Downtown shopping was ok too. Crowded too! Is there a limit on how many ships they will let in port at one time? Maybe there should be. No more expensive excursions for us!! We will take a cab or something. You have to see the bay from high up because it is beautiful to see.
very interesting and beautiful
Once we got off the ship, we found a bus tour. The tour took us to some shopping areas, beautiful views from the top of the island, and to a beach. We got to spend some time in each of these places.
We got shopping, informational tour of the island & beach time -all for $30 PP, great time!!!!
We went to Blackbeard's castle ($14 admission/per person is steep for what you get to see. We cannot recommend this.
We also did a city tour for $30 where we saw a few photo ops and went to the banana daquiri place.
We opted to go to Coki Beach over Meghan's Bay because we only had 2 hours (part of the tour). If you remember one thing, it is this, do not go to Coki Beach. That was my singular biggest regret of the whole trip was having to spend 2 hours there. Meghan's Bay and or Sapphire Beach would be much better choices.
Having gone on the tour I cannot recommend it either-it was rather boring unless you are a history buff although our tour operator Godfrey was nice enough. I would recommend just spending a day at the beach.
