Tour was very informative - however the van was a bit too hot, but that was easy to forget after seeing some of the sights of the island. Personal highlight was snorkeling with Gustavo and Tony, I enjoyed the reef thoroughly! Thank you!

My wife and I had a great experience on the land and sea (snorkeling) tour. Our group totaled only ten and was a lot better experience than most of the cruise ship excursions. Our tour guide (Danny Bush) was knowledgeable and even made a small detour so that my wife could buy vanilla at a local store. Transportation was comfortable in a van with good AC.

We enjoy this trip around the island. Well guided by Luis, we visited interesting places such as viewpoints, West End and did many activities, including a snorkeling and dolphin seeing in Sandy Bay
Although our visit days were changed, we were still met on time by the guide and driver. The driver, Chelsea, and guide, Clarence were absolutely wonderful. They were very knowledgeable and so personable. They made the vist worthwhile. The guides for snorkeling were also great. I would definitely use Shore Excusions Group again. Hopefully all the associated employees are as great as these guys were

Best excursion ever. The land part was good but the sea portion was a blast. Bring your swim suit even if you dont snorkel. You can swim or tread water around the boat and enjoy the fantastic water. Our guide and driver on your he land portion were informative and helpful and willing to do what the group wanted. The boat captain and mate were awesome in getting us in and out of the sea. I recommend this excursion.
