Worth It!
Our guides were awesome and the bikes were in great shape. They even indulged my husband's love for cycling with spirited conversation and a friendly sprint at the end of the tour. This tour had a good mix of on/off road cycling so be prepared to ride alongside some vehicles--however, there was no point where we felt in danger or nervous about road-riding.

COVID-19 CERTIFIED Pigeon Island National Park Private Tour & Beach Day
Thanks for taking good care of us Naomi! We appreciated getting to see the parts of the island we had not seen yet - the city, Reduit Beach, Pigeon Island, the "moon", etc. We especially loved the hike on Pigeon Island. Loved the food from your restaurant. Zing! Good luck - hope everyone who comes to the island gets to hang out with you!

Mini Off Road Biking Adventure

St Lucia Coastal Bike Tour to Pigeon Island
This was an excellent tour with a real personal touch. Don and Kelvin were our guides, providing a one on one service during the afternoon. It takes about 2 hours but can be bespoke allowing you to go at your own pace. We had a good debrief and familiarisation with the bikes. Everything was COVID safe and also very safety aware. When you are cycling on roads, which can be busy, one of the guides follows behind in a van, effectively meaning you always have a “buddy” as the vehicle behind you. This is a huge plus. The bikes were awesome and the trails involve some moderate difficulty off road cycling which their huge tyres are perfect for. The views of the two coastlines are well worth the effort, being able to see two different sides of the island. The routes taken were interesting too. Don and Kelvin were both warm, welcoming, funny and very knowledgeable. They could answer every question we had and more. They attended to our comfort and safety at all times and managed our different levels of ability on the bikes well. In many ways they really made the tour. We would totally recommend it.

Brilliant tour with an even more brilliant tour guide!

St Lucia Coastal Bike Tour to Pigeon Island
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: this is THE tour to do in St Lucia. Well, what can I say? The biking tour was such great fun! I'd say it's beginner-friendly and appropriate for those who'd like a challenge that's just-right. Honestly, the tour guide made the experience well worth the price - very friendly and warm. The experience also doubled as a guided historical tour of Pigeon Island. I was travelling solo (female), so was nervous about doing activities alone but the tour guide not only made the tour personalised but was very accomodating about pickups. Refreshments are also offered (water and fruit) which was a plus! 10/10 experience

Cruise stop

Rediut Beach / Pigeon Island Beach Break
We had a great day with James. He was waiting for us as he promised just outside the cruise terminal. Unfortunately it was a rainy day but this did not in any way spoil our day as James had everything planned. We visited a few beauty spots and stopped for photos. We visited the fort and then on to the beach we were given so much interesting information. The weather had by now improved and we had a lovely few hours relaxing. I would highly recommend a day trip with James.

St Lucia Coastal Bike Tour to Pigeon Island
Had a bit of a snafu with pickup. But he made it up to us. Enjoyed the hike in Pigeon Park. The bikes were in good condition. My only suggestion is that you feel comfortable riding a bit on city streets with traffic...meaning you need to be confident. Not for young kids. Snacks and water provided.
