Double Decker Bus Shore Excursion

Sit back, relax, and watch the many wonders of St. Maarten from the comfort of a double-decker bus. During this St. Maarten open-top bus tour, you'll pass by charming villages, beautiful beaches, and other great attractions while learning all about them from your knowledgeable guide. Book your St. Maarten tour today and take a trip through paradise.

Upon leaving the harbor, experience the dual personality of the island firsthand. Since the mid-1600s, the island has been flying the Netherlands flag and the France flag. Philipsburg, the Dutch capital, is among the first attractions on this tour, followed by a trek through the Orleans district located on the French side of the island.

As you make your way north, there will be a few stops for photo ops, including a brief break at Orient Beach (where you'll also get a drink). Multiple fishing villages are on the St. Maarten tour route as well, providing a glimpse into the daily lives of fisherman in the area. Another major stop is Marigot, the French capital home to a number of beautiful shops, markets, and boutiques worth checking out. Eventually, you'll make your return to Phillipsburg to end this St. Maarten sightseeing tour, but not before enjoying some wonderful views of Simpson Bay and Cole Bay Hill.

Book this St. Maarten tour today for an unforgettable Netherlands excursion.

Please Note: Due to hurricane damage on the French side of the island, this tour will operate as a Dutch side island tour until further notice. The tour will stop at the Rum Distillery in Cole Bay, Maho Beach, Carousel Gelateria and Cafe in Simpson Bay, and Amsterdam Cheese in Philipsburg. The Dutch side island tour will also include a free rum tasting at the Rum Distillery with a short rum history tour, a free ride in a vintage carousel, a free Dutch cheese tasting, free home-made ice cream, and free ice water on board the bus.

We enjoyed this beautiful island's lush landscaping and gorgeous blue surf. The islander's are friendly, laid back and happy people. The double decker bus was novel, and the driver very informative. We would recommend this shore excursion for a fun outing.

Reviewer: Charles H Anderson
We enjoyed the double decker bus tour. The driver and guide were very good. Bus was well-maintained and clean. The only shortcomings involved the stop at the beach and the carousel. Not enough time at the beach. The carousel could have been skipped from our perspective.
