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

This was a nice overview of the island, and Brenda & Franko were very hospitable. We did miss a couple of views simply because of rain, but really an enjoyable time. I tried the banana daquiri at Mountain Top, and it was delicious!

It was raining when we first arrived at the top, but after about 10 min it cleared out and we were able to see the other islands. The bus was newer and rode well. Driver was informative about the town and history.

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.

$25 per person for a 2 hour tour. It was nice in an open vehicle. Our driver and tour guide was super nice. Wish we would have been able to stay longer on the island. 7-1 was not enough time.

The tour was a ride to the top of the highest point on the island. The vehicle to get us there made as set an open cart loaded on the back of a large pickup. There was no safety belt and since we both sat at the end of a row there was no protection. I've addressed this issue with Holland America. Theoretically the view from the top of the island is beautiful, but there is a huge tourist shopping store which takes up most of the summit. However, the views or very good. The roads were primitive, without guardrails and not advisable for nervous tourists. Read Less

St. Thomas USVI was the best stop on this cruise. We had been here before but only explored the shops at the port and downtown back then. On this repeat visit we joined a handful of others on a mini-bus tour. The shopping map provided by the ship didn't reflect that fact that some stores at the cruise port were still closed due to hurricane damage. This included the same places that the ship provided coupons for like Del Sol, Milano and Cariloha. It is a pretty long walk from the Crown Bay dock to the taxi stand and we were unable to find a golf cart or other shuttle between the two. Read Less

We really enjoyed the island of St Thomas. We did a tour on a bus around parts of the island. The guide was not able to point out much other than a nursing home and hospital. We had some opportunities to stop and take photographs from a high altitude. We stopped at Megan’s bay for a couple of hours. We were not given beach chairs so had to sit on towels on the beach. There were toilet facilities and shower. The beach was not too busy and very beautiful. Read Less

Most tour vehicles are open-sided truck-buses. Steep steps to climb in and out, and they ride -- well, like a truck. Tour had just two stops, at Mountaintop (50 minutes to shop, drink the original banana daiquiri, and enjoy the view over Magen's Bay). Ten minutes would have been plenty for me. The second stop was at an overlook above Charlotte Amalie, shorter, but also featuring vendors. Then you have to walk through a shopping plaza to get back to the ship. Not much of a tour, and the worst kind -- the kind where they have to point out the post office and the high school because there's nothing more interesting to look at. Not worth the price. Read Less
