Full description
Explore the scenic island of Saint Thomas on a half-day tour that includes plenty of time to grab some duty free bargains at the great shops.

Select a pick-up time from the choice of 09:00, 10:00, or 11:00. Your driver will pick you up direct from your ship or hotel and take you to the downtown area of Charlotte Amalie at the heart of St. Thomas. Discover the Caribbean's premier duty-free destination, with time to explore Main Street and the Waterfront on your own. Find the best deals on unique jewelry, watches, brand name electronics, and your favorite liquors.

At 12:00 (subject to change based on your ship’s schedule) start your sightseeing adventure by open-top safari truck. Drive up to the highest point of Saint Thomas and marvel at the views of Magens Bay Beach from the Mountain Top observation point. Along the way, the driver will make several stops so that you can take some spectacular pictures from different angles.

Enjoy amazing views from Mountain Top of neighboring islands including Tortola, St. John, and Jos Van Dyke. Go to the bar and get yourself a world-famous Banan daiquiri or another mixed drink. At Mountain Top, you'll get another chance to indulge in gift shopping and discover other finds.

En route back to the starting point, travel around the east coast to Red Hook Ferry Dock, and see 2 of the island’s marinas where you will experience a more authentic side to St. Thomas and discover how the locals live. End your tour back at your hotel or ship by 14:00-14:30.

Decent itinerary and Gould guide

The day was dismal, cloudy and rainy which affected what we could observe. We were picked up on time, taken downtown and told our guide would be coming two and a half hours later. This time was spent shopping which was a little too long. Our guide picked us up on time and spent the next 3 hrs driving the island. Had it not been for the weather conditions we would have seen some beautiful vistas. We were then handed off to another vehicle/driver to be brought back to our ship. Our tour guide gave explanations of what we were driving past and was very sociable throughout the tour.

A singing and swinging chauffeur; really party time!

The deliver what is promised in the text. It was not really hurried as some people say, but of course seeing the 4 hours you really cannot see everything. I liked the good mood and swinging ride. However, if your ears are a little bit sensitive don't book this because you will end up with headache because of the loud music and singing. For me this was the most rememorable tour just because of this!
