Shopping was bad. But we found a nice place to get breakfast and beers. Driver and tour was good, bus was an open air F250, he played fun music and tried to get everyone involved. Top of the mountain was like a giant truck stop for souvenirs but we were able to get a decent banana daiquiri and some good priced rum and the view was incredible. Megans Bay Beach was incredible and made the trip.

From the start, our guide was friendly, very knowledgeable, and courteous. He gave us a great tour of the island, gave us ample time to shop around the downtown area, and enticed everyone to want to move to Charlotte St. Amelie. HIGHLY recommended!!

I had researched many St Thomas tours via Google and YouTube before my cruise and chose this one as it looked lots of fun. It didn't disappoint! When I got to the meeting point and realised it was Elvis, it was like meeting a celebrity! Such an excellent day. There was long enough to explore Charlotte Amelie's shops on your own, before meeting back at the transport to travel up to Mountain Top where the views are breathtaking! The final stop was the amazing Magens Bay beach for a dip in the crystal clear and warm sea and to soak in the incredible views. When you add in Elvis and the fun Reggae singalong music travelling between each of the stops, it all added up to a day I will not forget. Ten out of ten!

We choose this excursion because we got to learn about the island we were visiting but yet still got to enjoy an Amazing Beach - Magens Bay Beach. Our guide Armitage aka-Air Force One was full of great information about the island and past history. He took the time to answer all questions and allow us to see a lot of extra things that we probably would never had the opportunity to. My husband loves collecting license plates and he is a veteran. Air Force One actually gave him a special one in which he had that was a veterans plate. He just gave it to him at no cost. Thanking him for his service. You just dont see that these days. We are travel agents and this is definitely one excursion that we will be recommending to our clients that go to St. Thomas. What an amazing time we had. Can't wait to come back
This tour was great, fun filled day. We were not so interested in shopping part of it, but the shopping area is really nice, with great shops, for everyone's taste. Highlight of our excursion was drive to, and staying at the highest elevation point , above the city. Incredible views. The beach part was awesome too; beautiful water. Our driver was Elvis and he was really good.
