We used Bernard Tours on our recent visit to St. Maarten on The Quantum Of The Seas. Our driver Mailman was awesome!! We got to see the whole island along with spending time at Orient Beach and Maho Beach. We got to stay extra time at Maho waiting for the biggest plane of the day to come in. This was... More

When I went to st. Martin I purchased the best jerk seasoning I have ever tasted. When it ran out I was searching for it online but I couldn't find it. So the search began and I found Bernard's tours. I contacted Bernard via email about the jerk seasoning. He was so helpful. He sent me 3 bottles of my... More

There were five of us ladies who took a private tour with Bernard's and we weren't disappointed. Our guide, David, did an outstanding job showing us the island and giving us a history lesson in the meantime. I would definitely recommend Bernard's!!

I hate booking excursions through the cruise lines. I find them overpriced and I like to support local business. We read lots of tours about Bernard's on Tripadvisor and eagerly booked tour #1 (2 of our friends opted for tour #2 and were equally as pleased - and we saw them at a few stops). First, you are met exactly... More

After reading good things about Bernard's tours, we decided to book an island tour with them, rather than the cruise line. Good choice. Our guide Simon was very informative. He told us a lot of history about the island. We made some stops for photo ops. Since we were sunburned from our previous day's excursion, we told him we weren't... More

We booked a day's tour with Bernard's Tours as an independent excursion from our cruise ship (MSC Divina). After a slight problem in locating the representative of Bernard's Tours at the cruise terminal, six of us were treated to a great tour of the island in a minibus, visiting both the French and Dutch sides. Our driver (Simon) was also... More

We were on a cruise with Royal Caribbean and booked this tour with recommendations from others. It was the best excursion I've been on. DJ Dave was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the island. He constantly was educating us on the island and stopping for photographs that he thought we'd like. Great value for the money. We... More

Our group of 15 booked a private tour with Bernard's Tours on Feb 13 and DJ Dave was our guide. We got a nice big comfortable bus. We pretty much followed the itinerary they usually do, because it sounded good to us, but we were able to be all together in one bus, and could decide how much time we... More

Great tour. My only reservation was we were told to meet at the tourist office and the group instead met over in the parking area. The lady at the tourist office told us to wait there and then took off. Leaving us standing next to the office. My wife fortunately was able to locate the group by the parking area.... More
