Since I travel a lot by myself, I enjoy taking tours with groups like this. DJ was extremely informative about his island and I felt educated at the end of the tour. Orient Beach was beautiful. It was $10 for a chair rental, but they had no problem with you sitting at the bat tables nearest the beach instead. In... More

After much research we booked with Bernard's Tours. I read from other reviews that D.J. and the mailman were the best guides. We requested D.J., he was great and very knowledgeable. Our tour departed at 9:00 A.M. sharp! We were always on time. D.J. brought an ice chest filled with sodas, water, and a secret punch. He did a fine... More

This is the first time our group visited St.Maarteen. We had 'mailman' as our guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Really enjoyed the air conditioned bus, and complimentary drinks. Our tour bus had 17 passengers. So lots of space in the bus. We found the stay at orient beach a little too long, Would of rather spend more... More

We booked this tour outside of Carnival through Bernard's website. Upon arrival at the dock we were met by the tour reps and had a few minutes to wait while they rounded up everyone. We loaded onto a small, newer bus with about 24 other people. Our stops included Orient Beach, the airport, the French capital and a few other... More

We were in St. Maarten on July 15th on the Carnival Liberty and did Tour #2 with Bernard's. I highly recommend this tour if visiting the island. Mailman was our guide and was FANTASTIC. The line was a little lengthy at the terminal and moved rather slowly, but there were 3 ships in port that morning. Mailman quickly walked us... More

With some trepidation, we booked Bernard's tour of St. Maarten/Martin including the beach. You see, we are fairly new to cruising, and have thus far played it safe by using the ship excursions. Boy, are we glad we ventured out of our comfort zone. The "Milkman", Milanius, gave us a comprehensive, fun, and educational tour of the entire island. The... More

SXM Island II Toured with DJ Dave on July 17 with my 5 year old son Ramsay. John with Bernard's Tours met us at the welcome desk of the terminal and we waited a few minutes for the rest of the tourists to arrive as disembarking takes a little time. We walked about a half block to the parking area... More

Our tour guide, Junior, took good care of us. He provided drinks, covered virtually the whole island, & stopped for photos!

My family and I had an amazing time in St. Maartens thanks to Bernards Tours and our driver Simon. We were a party of 10; 8 adults and 2 kids. We booked a private tour that lasted 6 hours. Simon drove us to the Iguna Farm, it was actually under construction so there weren't many Iguanas to see. We then... More

We are happy to recommend this tour company to anyone who wants to see the island of St. Maarten. Our guide, John, was well-informed and very willing to be at our service. On the day of our tour, which can be prearranged with a small deposit in advance and then paid for in full on the set day, there was... More
