Crowded in an open bench-style bus.
Crowded in an open bench-style bus. Wind blown, no storage for bags. A very long shopping break (2 hrs.) in a touristy area full of jewelry stores. A brief drive up to an overlook and then a 2 hr. beach break. Too much time shopping!

Was surprised to find it was on an open-sided buggy type vehicle, but it was great and it was fun.

Loved the Pirate Museum! That was the most educational of everything we saw on the tour! Who knew that the pirates were there when Columbus and Drake discovered the areas!

Took a little longer as they were dropping off couples at a couple of different resorts and parks on the island. Otherwise great tour up to the scenic view point and Mountain Top for some Banana Daiquires.

Beach was very nice. They didn't bring back to the shipwhen we were finished but dropped us off to shop which we didn't want to do. We had to wait awhile before we could get our bus back to the ship.

Complete rubbish.
Complete rubbish. Some nice vantage points but basically take you to the top of a hill and a crappy touristy shopping area - home of the famous banana daiquiri for 11 bucks. Waste of a couple of hours

The last time I was in St. Thomas, the taxi drivers at the port were overly aggressive, so we ended up staying near the ship and then spending the rest of the day onboard. This time, I booked this excursion so I wouldn't be in the same situation. They provided a ride up to Mountain Top for scenic views from a gift shop then a stop at Magen's Bay for a couple hours of beach time. It ended with a stop downtown for "shopping" on Main Street (mainly jewelry stores). I'm not a shopper so the last bit was not for me. However, the views from the mountain and at the beach were great. It was a nice overview and gave me a better sense of the island than the first experience. Read Less

We got off at the port and just found a big open air bus thing to take us around the island, it took about 2 hours, gave us a few exceptional views and photo opportunities of the island, then either dropped you off at the shopping district or took you back to the docks. Loved the port, we've been there many times, recommend taking the side alleys off the main shopping road, cute shops and little bars! Read Less

NCL: Best of St. Thomas tour. We paid (I think) $60/ person? We took an open-air bus to Mountain Top (VERY fun, lol!) where we had 25 minutes to shop and snap photos. We then headed to Magens Bay where we had 2 hours to enjoy the beach. We were dropped off downtown where we could shop before returning to our ship. We liked the trip, but would have enjoyed more historical commentary on the bus. The sound system made it VERY hard to hear/understand. Other reviews critiqued the means to get folks back to the ship, but the tour operator was very clear in their communication (verbal and written) to us on where to catch our water shuttle back to the Bliss.
