We used Bernard at the recommendation of several members of cruise critic. We cruise a lot and prefer to book private tours vs ship excursions. This tour was fantastic and hit all the key points of both the Dutch and French sides. We had a blast. We were in a comfortable van with another family and really enjoyed our tour.... More

My husband and I visited St Martin on a cruise and were in port for one day. Bernards tour meets in a white tent across the parking lot to the left after you go through the cruise information center. It was a little hard to find but with some guidance we were there. It is a good 10 minutes from... More

As the title implies the tour was generally very good. As other have said the driver is informative, he visited some interesting locations such as the lizard gathering by the side of the road and Marigot. We also spent some time at a reasonably priced section of Orient Beach and concluded with some time at Maho Beach watching a few... More

Great day and time well spent with Bernard Tour. They were on time meeting us at the port and bringing us back to the port. The history of the island was very informative! The beach was beautiful. The planes coming in above your head to land was awesome!! & last, the "Rum Punch" was DELICIOUS!! GREAT DAY

Bernards tours was wonderful. We had a great tour guide. I have been to St. Martin several times and this was the best tour. The tour took us everwhere. Lizard farm, several stops to see the island, Maho Beach, Orient Beach, too many palaces to list. the tour guide was wonderful. He took us through the town he lives in... More

We decided to take this tour, and not a cruise ship one, due to the great reviews. I'm glad we chose to do it, but the one downfall for me was that the microphone wasn't working on our bus so I couldn't hear anything the driver was saying as I was in the back row with our 2 children. My... More

Our group of 13 booked with Bernard separately from the cruise ship. The “Milkman” was our guide and had a great personality and was very knowledgeable about the island history. He served his famous homemade (strong!) rum punch – delicious – along with soda, water and beer! The bus was air-conditioned and comfortable. We toured both the French and Dutch... More

We took tour 1 since we didn't care too much about beach time. We had DJ as our guide and he was great. Knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He took us all around and pointed out a lot of things along the way and at all the stopping points. Water, sodas, beer and the famous rum punch was available for the... More

Booked tour online with $5 deposit per person - $35 pp due at beginning of tour. Because there were only 3 of us, we were placed with another group of 8. We were transported in a small bus with good air conditioning and plenty of space. We were offered water, island beer and rum punch during the trip. First stop... More
