Exceptional Tour
, Nov 2021
We got to see the island's highlights on this private excursion. Our knowledgable guide informed us of the history and local lore of St. John. We saw all the fabulous beaches along coasts. This tour is a definite must for first times visitors.

Perfect Day in St John!
, Oct 2021
Our guide Evans was excellent and we LOVED this tour. The tour was comprehensive or the city, nature, national park and any other info he decided to share. Very comprehensive. We actually paid more and spent another hour on the tour so we could swim with the turtles. We didn’t feel rushed at all but felt safe and had a great love for the island once the tour was completed. We will be back and would definitely recommend this tour!!
Totally worth it

Fantastic Educational Tour with a Local Guide

We were lucky enough to book a private tour with Hibiscus, who grew up on St. John. She is an expert on the flora, fauna, and history of the island. The tour has many scenic stops and great photo ops. The sugar mill is a piece of history and the ruins are some of the oldest on the island. Hibiscus also provides a personal perspective on the experience of the locals after surviving the most recent Cat 5 hurricanes and the pandemic. The tour begins and ends in the St. John ferry terminal which makes it easy to find their truck/taxi and is a great place to shop and eat lunch afterwards.

Perfect Island Tour

We loved the personal attention from the guide. Hibiscus (our guide ) gave us a detailed Flora and Fauna tour along with history of the island and beautiful scenery. The tour was better than we expected.

We took this tour on our first day on the island and we were so grateful for that. Our tour guide, Hibiscus, was so friendly and knowledge. She took us all around the island showing us different sights, beaches, tress/plants, and fruits. This really helped us see what was available for us on the island to do later in our stay. If you do this tour, we would really recommend it being the first thing you do on the island to learn more about how you can enjoy your stay!

The perfect way to start our trip!

What a fun tour! My husband, 8-year-old daughter and I thought this would be a fantastic way to begin our first visit to St. John so that we could get a lay of the land before exploring. Boy were we right and more! Our awesome tour guide, Hibiscus, was a native of St. John, so we got a very personal accounting of the history of the island. She drove us all around for 2.5 hours, showed us the various beaches we might want to visit, pointed out certain vegetation, and taught us about the culture and history of the island. All the while, she sprinkled in stories of her childhood there to make it all come to life. What an amazing place to grow up! Once we were done with this private tour, we had a much better idea of how we wanted to spend the rest of our time on St. John. Hibiscus also had iced cold water on hand, answered all of our curious questions, and even gave our daughter a fun assignment to follow so she would remember certain details. At the end, after Hibiscus checked our daughter's answers, she rewarded her with a very sweet gift bag. We highly recommend this specialized tour!
