Coming in on a cruise ship and not wanting to do the typical tours we opted to reseach and found Bernard Tours. 5 couples with our most excellent tour guide and driver DJ! You walk off the ship on the Dutch side, and your off on an adventure around the island. DJ was knowledgeable about the Dutch and the French,... More

During our recent visit our group of 10 people had pre-booked a private tour with this company while in St. Maarten. Our driver and guide was Simon and we really enjoyed his knowledge of the island, places he took us to and his sense of humor. You will not be disappointed if you ask for him. We went to a... More

These guys were the best showing you around the island. French side and Dutch side. Van was nice and cool Provided water. I had Jackson and also met Simon on stops. They were both FAB!!! Highly recommended. Got back way before ship time.

On our recent cruise to St Maarten, like most men, I had one priority. The beach beside the airport. I went searching for a tour that would ensure we got to see it, along with other highlights, and Bernard's Tours seemed to be a popular choice. Having booked it, I can see why. It's clearly a large operation, with several... More

Tried this tour company based on recommendations on the Celebrity Facebook page and on tripadvisor. Did not disappoint. Very good overview of the island, nice stops esp. at Orient Beach (doing tour #2), and knowledgeable tour guide. We had a great time and nearly a full day exploring this beautiful island. We would book the tour again in a heartbeat.... More

November 6...3 sisters with husbands, one birthday boy...a "got to do" list the girls put together. Phillippe said, "No problem, Mon." We said, "This is your home, show us what you want us to see." He did it 100%. All six of us agreed...this was the best excursion we've ever done together. I sat in the third row of van... More

Cruising and stopped for a day. Decided to get a quick look around and arranged to take a Day tour including a couple of hours on the beach and what a wonderful day. Bernard Tours presented us the opportunity to travel with 5 other couples in a nice van with a wonderful guide D.J. The island is small but filled... More

We took a tour of St Maarten last week with DJ Dave of Bernard's tours. It was a fantastic tour. DJ was very knowledgeable and told us so much about the island as we drove along. The van was comfortable and air conditioned. It also had a good sound system so we could understand everything he said. We took the... More

We took a recent cruise to St Maarten and took the Island Tour #1. This was my second time using Bernard's. Dave was our tour guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. The stop at Maho Beach to watch the planes is the highlight of the tour. It was very inexpensive...around $40 for the... More

This tour lived up to it's reviews. Only downside was that our ship did not arrive until 10:00 tour was cut a little short. DJ our driver was the best. made us feel welcomed to his island. Worked the schedule for the day so that we were at Maho Beach so we could see a few planes come in. None... More
