What people are saying about Castries
Very friendly guide and safe driver with a big clean, cool car. Great day with Bernard exploring St Lucia’s main sites. Very glad we did not try to negotiate the mountain roads in a rental car.
We enjoyed our day very much. Lots of stops to take pictures and experience all St Lucia has to offer. Danny answered all our questions and was very entertaining.
This was an excellent experience and we would recommend Danny to everyone who wants to have most of just one day on St Lucia. He is a very knowledgeable, fun guy with attention to detail who also took special care of our 4 year old kid. Thanks Danny! :-)
The tour covered the main sites in St Lucia. Reasonable value for money, although the price did not include lunch or admission to the Botanical Garden. Our guide, Bruno, was very informative, and we were lucky that we were the only people on the tour so could adjust timings to suit us.
Edan was our guide for the day and collected us in a nice Toyota Previa, lots of space and nice and cool. He took us to all the places listed and some others including Rum Tasting and a local bakery followed by lunch by the harbour. We has lot of photo opportunities with Edan taking us to best vantage points. Great day. and Edan was both knowledgeable and good company. It was also cheaper than the tour offered by the hotel and I booked online once I was there.
