This is a unique and worthwhile excursion as you learn not only the history of the town, you get to try their local dishes. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations of places to visit. We visited 5 different places to try local dishes. The first stop was at Es Garden Teas. Had the Hibiscus Tea which was refreshing and delicious paired with a salted fish quiche type dish. Then, we moved on to try rum cake at MBW Cafe and Bakery. Moving on to the next was Glady's Cafe where we tried more local dishes which included conch fritter, and three other dishes were all delicious! There was also a place where we tried a local meat pie which reminded me of an empanada but filled with meat that had these spices. To finish off the tour, we had a refreshing drink of the "bushwacker" - which tasted like a very flavorful milkshake. Overall, I would totally recommend this tour. If you love to try new food and know the area's history, check this one out.

We booked this excursion in St. Thomas and it was BY FAR our favorite excursion. Our guide Gerard was not only warm and welcoming but took us through the streets of Charlotte Amalie telling us about the history and it's people. We loved every stop, with salt fish quiche and hisbiscus tea, to pumpkin soup and the most delicious rum cake imaginable! The empanadas were scrumptuous and our final drink, "the pain killer" was delightful! We loved this tour and highly recommend it!

Loved the historic main street food tour. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The food and drink were unique. The back alleys and small passageways were nice. A short taxi ride from the ship - not expensive and lots of taxi's to get back.

The historic street and food tour was a lot of fun. The guide was very knowledgeable about the landmarks, the food and drink was interesting and I would recommend it. You do have to catch a taxi to and from but there are dozens of them all around and the price was reasonable.
