St. Lucia Rainforest Aerial Tram Tour Excursion Reviews

The lush rainforest of St. Lucia is absolutely stunning and there might not be any better way to experience it than on a rainforest aerial tram tour, during which you can escape the heat of the lowlands on a relaxing ride in an open-air gondola.

Prepare to get wet. Fortunately we were. The ample rain on the way up however, makes it difficult to see any birds or other wildlife. Even though the tram is covered the rain blows sideways and makes it cold (I tend to get cold easily) They load the tram based on your size. Try not to sit in third row if you can. There is a hole in the canopy in which the water pours on your head. We were fortunate the rain let up on the way down and we saw a few hummingbirds and a couple other birds. The tram stops frequently, every time another load of passengers has to load/unload. We probably had to wait close to an hour just to board the tram. If you’re interested in botany this is an excursion. If not, then not so much. Read Less

Beautiful drive across the island took us to a protected rainforest where we slowly glided in a tram through the rainforest while it was narrated by a guide in our tram. Going up the mountain, we were at a low level. Coming back we were tree tops and had views across the island. We didn't see many birds but we did get a real feel for being in the trees of a rainforest. Afterwards we had a complimentary fruit juice beverage and returned to our ship. Read Less

This was a wonderful excursion and we would definitely recommend it! We were never in a rainforest and were fascinated - it really really did rain so be sure you take the ponchos offered and put them on before you start the ride!

For this stop we chose the Rainforest Tram experience at the last minute. Because the weather was going to be very hot again, we thought the rainforest would offer a cooler respite and a more laid back experience from the 4x4 the day before. I’ll be honest and say this excursion is overpriced for what it is. I believe we paid in the neighborhood of $130/pp and it would have been an acceptable excursion for up to $75/pp. It’s a very long ride to get up to the mountains, the van we were riding in had barely useable A/C for the ride up and for the ride back, the A/C quit. So we were quite overheated by the time we got back to the ship. The tram itself was pleasant, the guide very nice and knowledgeable, and it was nice looking at the trees and the area from a unique vantage point above the trees. But again, at $120 - $130/pp the excursion did not justify the price. We were so hot by the time we got back to the port we just went directly back to the ship. Read Less

St Lucia, Castries. This is the prettiest looking island, very green. We took a tour bus up into the rain forest for a cable car ride.  I would swear we were driven up and back by Michelle Schumacher's Caribbean brother but we made it.  The cable "car" is actually a steel cage seating 8 people, 2 side by side and you have to sit where you are told because the basket has to be balance.  We were picked out and told to sit right in the front.  We could not believe our luck. So off we go for about 200 yards and we come to a stop!  The the guide explains that we will be stopping every time another group needs to get in a car.  This not a bad thing because it give you time to look around the forest.   At the top you have to come down,  right?   Wrong you proceed to ride higher into the tree tops, in the forest canopy then at the highest point you look out right across the island.  If you look down you see other cable cars coming up.  This is a must do tour and we'll worth the money.  That is about all we did, back at the ship life went on.

I love this island and my fave thing to do is a catamaran trip which is very well worth doing but we decided to try something different this time. We had a half hour ride to the forest with a lovely driver who gave us interesting pointers. The trams take about 8 people and a guide and just glide so peacefully up through the trees. The guide was amazingly knowledgeable and kept it light hearted and interesting. The ride back down gave beautiful views of the island from the tree tops and then we had a brief walk around the garden area and saw the humming birds. We were given a drink and there is a small gift shop. It was enjoyable but did seem expensive. We think we might be brave and try the zip lining next time as that looked fun. Read Less
