Was very surprised that St Thomas was a little run down and dirty. But we had some fantastic views and the beach we were taken to was excellent. Not crowded, were able to rent chairs and an umbrella and had someone taking care of our every needs. The snorkeling was fantastic!
We didn't know what to expect and it was a great tour. He took us to many different points to get pictures and learn about the history of the island. He was very thoughtful and helpful with taking family pictures. He kept telling all the people in the tour that they were on vacation (if we were trying to help each other out by taking pictures for each other) and he would take the pictures for all of us. He was making sure we were comfortable. His price was outstanding!!!! He took us to the Banana Daiquiri also. You can do some shopping there along with a banana daiquiri. We also went to the beach for a short stop. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour. He dropped us back off right by the cruise ship port. We found him right when we got off the taxi that took us to the shopping area. 340-690-5215 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Took tour bus to top of mountain and then to Blackbeard's Castle. Then it became a self guided tour but no one really told us that so our entire group didn't know what to do or where to go. We started looking around after the Blackbeard's Castle for where to go next eventually I found some stairs and headed down them then everyone followed. We kept finding more places with more stairs, came down to a person in chair who would mumble something then we would have to figure out whether to go down an alley or more stairs on our own. No signage at one place we thought a guy was trying to panhandle so our group walked past him then he told us we were rude and that our tour continued into a house. We discussed if we was telling the truth or not. It was kind of scary. Not a good tour. Unless you can walk down a mountain's worth of stone stairs don't take this tour. If you have bad knees don't take this tour. Once you start you can't stop. No taxis to save you. The Amber Waterfall is in the courtyard of a house.
Booked a private tour for our group of 10. We had a driver for 6 hours. We shopped, went to Mountain Top to sight see, and went to a beach to have lunch and swim. Great tour and great day in St. Thomas. Just wish I would have had more time. Would love to go back.
We hired an independent taxi driver, named "Red" who gave us an amazing tour of the island. He took us where we wanted to go, as well as all the local places. He was a very funny and entertaining guy who EVERYBODY on the island seemed to know.
We've done St. Thomas a few times before, and yet didn't feel like we saw all the island. Based on Cruise Critic reviews, we decided on Godfrey because of the value (two free drinks included) and we wanted a good narrated tour. Loved the stop at the botanical garden..the view was awesome, it wasn't crowded and it was interesting to look at the birds, trees and bushes. Tip: sit near the front if you want to easily hear the tour over your fellow passengers chatting. We ended our day at Mojos outdoor bar at port. Swings, great food (seasoned chicken wings, hand pattied burgers on their outdoor grill) and reasonable drinks. And free wifi with purchase! On our last two cruises, that's been our end of day ritual.
25 people crammed in a hot, sweaty, open air trolley. 1 and 1/2 hours late returning to ship. Botanical garden really is not one - it is a lovely, mountain top setting for private parties. The "rum drink " there tasted like Hawaiian punch.
