Great experience!! Went there last year, drove near the volcano but you have to walk for 10 minutes up to actually volcano. Very smelly, the tour guide gives you a full run down of the history. views are magical. This is a must do whilst in St. Lucia

This is the best tour on the island. The mineral baths here are the only ones worth visiting (don't waste time and money at diamond falls). It is a great activity but book your own taxi or rent a car, otherwise it will be labelled as taking "all day" when we only needed about 2 hours .

This was one of the highpoints of our Caribbean Island Cruise. We took a tour all around St Lucia and spent a lot of time at the Soufriere Volcano. You could walk right up to the bubbling area with hot springs. We did not have time to take a mud bath or go in the hot springs. Next Time!! The... More

This was a nice little tour. We gained some knowledge on the history of the Volcano and got to see the boiling sulphur. The smell was not pleasant at all but did not bother me since i was so intrigued with what our tour guide was telling us. Go for the experience!

We decided to take a taxi to Soufriere and experience the mud bath at the volcano. I was a bit skeptical thinking it was just a tourist trap. I was pleasantly surprised that it was worth doing. We did the short tour and did the mud bath. The Water is very hot where you soak. Then you get out and... More

As they say, where else can you drive into a volcano! The staff are informed & do a good spiel, it's not a massive place so expect to be there about 30 mins, unless you do the baths etc Definitely worth a trip there as part of a day out

We visited here as part of a shore excursion arranged by Royal Caribbean. The visitor center is very insightful and the tour of the actual volcano site is very good although it is steep and there are a lot of steps as well. Good view of the boiling mud and steam vents from the viewing platforms. It wasn't too busy... More

Get there early or late to avoid the crowds. You don't really drive into a volcano, but drive up to thermal pools and get a brief tour. Then head down to the mud bath. The bath gets crowded when a bus group comes.

This was a fun experience because it was unique, but it is definitely a main tourist attractive. The mud baths are definitely crowded. The views were amazing though. Beware, its definitely stinky!

My daughter did the tour with a friend and her family. The trip to the volcano was long but the guide took advantage a explain the important place of the island. She got some great picture of the volcano and stop to taste some local food. She enjoyed it alot.
