Left for two hours of shopping needed approx. 45 minutes because the stores in town were mainly jewelry and specialty chocolate and knick-knacks. Then toured the Magen's Bay, Coki beach, and mountain top vistas with a stop at a tourist center up top. DId not stop at Blackbeard's castle and that was a disappointment as the admission was pricey and not included in the tour. But we spent about 5-6 hours on this tour. Read Less

Our island tour gave us a wonderful view of the beautiful locations that could be found on this island. If we had planned better, this would have been the location for a "beach" day -- Magen Bay Beach. We saw many of the best locations from high-point sites and the island was well described by our tour director. The shopping here was overwhelming -- especially for JEWELRY! Next time I will purchase a "babble". Read Less

We loved this open-air transport tour up into the island mountains to the Cruzan shop for Banana Daiquiri's in the late morning. The shopping hut was more like a mall and vast with island trinkets and alcohol. There were other stops in the mountain areas where we were able to view the many bays and beaches the island had to offer. Just a very lovely island! The shopping in St. Thomas is a "jewelry-lovers paradise." Unbelieveable the many jewelers that were lined up one after another and all vying for our money and desires. Read Less

We had a fun time with Sunny Liston Tours. He picked us up in port for an island tour with some shopping time. There was crazy driving and loud singing that everyone seemed to enjoy. We visited Coki, Sapphire, Magens beaches and all the other attractions (Mountaintop, Blackbeard/Bluebeard, views of the other islands, etc.) for just a quick sightseeing tour, then some shopping on the main street. There was the usual local market next to the Diamonds Int., etc., shops. Read Less

Did't book cruise trip as was told there was lots of taxis doing tours as you get off boat. We had a great tour of the island with local taxi (Moses Taxi Tours $25 each) Try to get in cab with driver as you get better info during tour and Air Con. Stopped at a local beach just around from ship. Emerald Beach very quite with a lovely location with white sandy beach and shallow waters. Taxi driver will drop you off there but you will need to get a $4 per person taxi back, Very relaxing day. Ray visited beach waters while there much to the surprise of people in water. Read Less

Met expectations. Not much to see on St. Thomas except the views from the hilltops. Guide was excellent and made the trip fun. My granddaughter got to sit up front in the cab so was delighted.

Our misfortune of not finding a rental car for the day turned into great luck, as we found "Benjie" the friendly taxi driver who was more than happy to negotiate a day-long private tour and beach/snorkeling stop for our family of 4. A 28-year veteran of the St Thomas police force and former US Secret Service agent, we felt perfectly safe as he drove us around the island in his 15 passenger air-conditioned van. The experience was highly personal, Benjie was extremely polite, knowledgeable and accommodating, and I was more than happy to give him a nice tip to what I felt was a reasonable price of one hundred forty dollars.
