An excellent trip which we would thoroughly recommend

We booked this trip independently rather than through our cruise ship (P&O) as it was much cheaper. We also got much more time doing what we wanted! Having never booked independently before we were a little cautious but there was no need! We were collected on time from the port by very friendly staff who took us to centre for the experience. We had an excellent guide - Sheldon - who showed all the sights and let us have good fun on the Segways! We were then treated to some local fruits on a refreshment stop along way which really made the whole experience! Thoroughly recommend this to anyone!

An absolutely awesome experience.

We received very friendly professional tuition from Chad who was very knowledgeable about the island and extremely helpful This made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable and we have the wonderful photos he took of us. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who is thinking of vacationing in the Caribbean. Thank you so much.
