Hopped on an open-air wagon attached to a pickup, stopped at 3 shopping places selling usual touristy stuff, stopped at a couple of overlooks. Little to no historical narration by guide.

We visited on Valentine's Day and chose a combination shopping, island tour and beach break excursion with Sunny Liston. It was wonderful and we would definitely use them again. The staff was cheerful and knowledgeable. They accommodated our every need. As it was a holiday, they had a large number of people to manage. This brought some unique challenges that Sunny handled with ease. The tour stops were breathtaking and interesting. Read Less

We went on the 5 Star Island Tour of St Thomas. What a rip off. The supposed scenic tour lasted about 15 minutes, one stop for photos and the rest of the time before the beach was spent at a large store. We were told that Magens Beach is the best beach in St Thomas. I hope not. If you hired a lounger or chair, you had to drag it yourself over a crowded beach with lots of tree roots. We paid someone to do that for us. You were meant to take them back and get your deposit back. We couldn't find the man and with the huge queue waiting to get back their deposits, we cut our losses and made sure we got to the trolley bus on time. Our fault for not starting to pack up earlier but with all this to sort out, you actually get very little time on the beach to relax. My advice is get a taxi and go straight to the beach. I will say that the trolley bus driver, Craig, was very good with my mother-in-law helping her off and on each time. Read Less

Sunny is a very colorful personality who made our excursion stand out. He was having a great time by showing us a great time. He provided free beverages throughout the 5 hours. We rode a safari-type mini bus to the mountain top with photo stops along the way, stopped in the major shopping area, and on to Megan Bay Beach, described as being among the top 10 beaches in the world. The scenery was wonderful, and Sunny was able to go into great detail explaining the historical significance of the different buildings, etc. The beach was the best part. There are showers, lockers, restrooms, a restaurant, and beach rentals for lounge chairs, kayaks, paddle boards. Picnic tables and shelters, too. I would do this again. Very inexpensive. I paid $49!

IMI St. Thomas Island Overview. We were asked to show up ten minutes before the official tour start, but the tour driver/guide showed up a half an hour late having us running around afraid we were in the wrong place. This unsettling experience is what prompted me to give this a poor rating while actually the tour itself was very interesting and informative. This was a two-hour orientation tour of St. Thomas, with stops at some of the island's highlights and exciting views of the island itself. Read Less

Did this one on a whim. Had gotten off the ship to do some self exploring & while trying to figure out where to have a taxi take us we were offered this tour for $25 each. Tour was roughly 3-1/2 hours in total. We were given a choice of being dropped off in town for shopping or dropped at Magen's Bay beach for an hour and a half. We went to Magen's Bay & enjoyed some fun in the sun for a bit before the tour bus came to pick us back up. Read Less
