This tour is highly recommended. While it is perhaps a touch pricier than other options, it is a great value and a lot of fun while being informative and educational too. You do and see A LOT in a 6-7 hour window, without feeling like you're rushing. It is a great way to see the western side of the island in one day. Dannyboy is fantastic and is genuinely interested in making sure you get the most out of your day. He is also a very skilled driver and expert pothole dodger, which is important in a place like St Lucia! This is the definition of experiences being more valuable than money. Do it.

Brilliant Tour with Danny Boy! Danny is a great guide full of information on the history of St Lucia. He has a lovely positive personality which meant there was never a dull moment on our tour. he really took care of us and made us feel at ease. As Danny is a local we really felt like we were getting an insight into life on the island but also getting a proper tourist experience visiting several popular tourist destinations. Would definitely recommend Danny to anyone wanting a tour, Good Vibes!

Our guide Lennard brought us closer to the country and its people in his own way and showed us everything and explained it very well. He has taken care of our well-being and our safety. We had a very nice day and would always recommend the tour with lennard.

Dylan was an excellent driver and guide with a pristine car and excellent driving skills that made Island roads seem smooth lol. I really appreciated the called Piton lager waiting for me after climbing Tet Paul!

Great tour and best option to spend a day on St. Lucia!
