A very nice way to see the island. Relaxing jeep tour followed by a nice beach with restaurants galore. I especially liked the open ended return to the ship that was offered. We could stay as long as we wanted to on the beach.

Our family of 4 really enjoyed this fun way to see the island. We enjoyed the stops, especially the iguanas&turtles. We liked being in our own jeep, using the walkie talkie&the steep roads.. Our guide encouraged us to ask questions but we would have liked more commentary e.g. he mentioned the hurricane several times but never told us anything about it. We were not impressed with waiting 40 minutes for one of the parties to arrive for the tour to begin. The same party got lost during the tour &we waited 20 minutes for our guide to find them. The instructions indicated that a rep would be waiting near the Information booth. We asked at the booth&were directed to proceed to the end of the road, to the white tents. This was not far but the instructions should have been accurate. At the end of the tour, our guide asked us if we'd like to be dropped off at the beach or return to the ship. We were very pleased when one of the employees joined us&drove with us to the ship.
Our jeep safari excursion was very very exciting--the jeep was in excellent condition and it was nice that we got to drive the jeep ourselves--we followed the driver and he kept in contact through walkie-talkie's giving us info on the area--which we loved--we stopped at a few shops and then stopped at a delicious lunch place that had the most delicious fish tacos ever. All in all a great experience--they had a cute little shop that I bought some t-shirts--loved it

The jeep was great but that was not the best part. The crew took us everywhere on the island. Explained everything along the way. We stopped at the beach, went to lunch and even saw some off site revues. The crew all along the way stopped to take pictures with us and for us. The entire time we communicated by walkie talkie. The entire stall was so nice and helpful. We ended up with the jeep for about 6 hours. Don't miss this excursion!!!!!!!

Our guide was Dwight and he was terrific. Because we were the only jeep going, we got extra time on the French side and saw much more than what was scheduled. This tour is highly recommended. They were very accommodating and friendly. This another great tour by Costco travel.
