With so much to do in St. Thomas, this combination tour is the perfect way to take it all in. Beginning with shopping in the capital city of Charlotte Amalie, followed by a sightseeing tour and a trip to your choice of three beaches, this is the ideal St. Thomas excursion for someone who wants a little bit of everything.

Around noon during your St. Thomas excursion, everyone will gather for the sightseeing trip to Mountain Top, rising 1547 feet above sea level. There will be plenty of opportunities along the way for pictures and taking in the scenery, including views of the white sand and crystal clear water of Magen's Bay Beach, named one of the world's 10 most beautiful beaches by National Geographic magazine. While on Mountain Top enjoy the free lookout spot overlooking Magen's Bay Beach and spectacular views of neighboring islands. Mountain Top is famous for their daiquiris and rum drinks so go right ahead and indulge (not included), and even visit their gift shop.
Bring your beach gear and a beach towel because your afternoon concludes with a stop at your choice of one of three beaches.

This was a very fun tour. We started with shopping, then sightseeing and then to Megan’s beach. A beautiful beach with beautiful water. It was a great way to end a hot day. The people that live in St. Thomas drive very wild, but that made the tour really fun. Our tour guide was great, played wild island music and encouraged us all to sing along with him. It was a lot of fun!
The tour guide was really great. The sites we were taken to was a good way to see the island. I felt rushed when we were at the top of the hill. We only had 20 mins to look around which wasn't enough to go through the big store, and have their famous banana daiquiri. I would have preferred less time at the shopping (which was all jewellery stores), and more time at the top of the hill. Beach time was perfect.

Our tour guide had us laughing so hard we were crying. What he lacks in his singing ability (sorry) he makes up for with his wit. He had our bus rocking and singing and others that we passed were obviously jealous. The sites were fantastic, the views were breath taking. Meagans Bay Beach is a MUST SEE!!! I look forward to bringing family and friends back to this port just for this tour.

Great excursion, lots of time for all 3 activities, we weren’t rushed. For the beach we elected Megan’s bay, beautiful beach, very busy and popular. I would do this excursion again, went to the top of St Thomas enjoyed the famous banana daiquiri, big store for souvenirs good prices, great views from the top of St Thomas. No shortage of jewellery stores and shops for souvenirs in town.
