It begins by riding along the west end coast line before heading up into the hills. We make a stop at an overlook that gives you fantastic views of the north shore. As we continue, we make our way to the top of Mt. Stewart where you get amazing vistas of the surrounding area. We visit plantation ruins from the early 1800's where you get time to explore and take photographs. From there we descend through the Sub-Tropical Rain Forest before ending the tour at a Rainbow Beach. « less

Our family had a great time of the ATV tour! This was the first time we had driven an ATV and it was a blast. Our guide gave us ample instruction and off we were on our tour. What a wonderful way to see the island. We were able to go through the rain forest and see the Creque Dam,... More

I have never driven an ATV - and it thought that once we got onto the dirt road, it was difficult to control. There was more than once that I completely lost view of the rest of the group since they were going so much faster that I was which was a bit discouraging. I also thought there would be... More

This experience was thrilling! First, we paid at the Gecko's Island office. There, we signed waivers and received helmets. We then drove to the ATV site (across the street from Rhythms @ Rainbow Beach) and parked our car. There, we met Jamal, our tour guide, who gave us a brief introduction of the adventure and explanation of how the machines... More

My daughter (10) and I took advantage of the 2-fer. ATV and jet ski. Although my hand got tired of using the throttles on both for over 2 hours we managed -lol. The lady who greeted us at the store was very helpful and friendly. The ATV was great fun, easy and had some great vistas - the guide seemed... More

I was a bit skeptical of the atv tour as I have no experience whatsoever. I was also a bit nervous when I realized it was just me, my teen daughter and the guide. You have to be a bit more cautious as women traveling. However within 5 minutes, I knew how to drive and within that same time, we... More

The tour was so much fun. Jamal was our tour guide and he was funny and informative. Because it had been very dry, there was no mud or puddles, but it was very dusty. I would recommend wearing sunglasses to keep the dust out of your eyes. Ma Thanks for a great time.... And stuff like that...

Out of our seven days in STX, this excursion was everyone's highlight!! **don't get lost like we did! We were staying in Fredericksted but didn't understand that Gecko's is essentially in a courtyard between the main streets, as many of the decent businesses/restaurants are **as a family of five (with kids 11, 9, 6), sometimes it is hard to figure...

What a great trip we had deep into the rain forest then up over some rough and wild roads to the top of a mountain from where we saw most of the island and that blue sea stretching off to as far as you could see. Jose was a grand guide who took care of us, told us what we... More

The equipment was excellent the guide was very good and gave just about the right amount of history on the area. Could have stopped a bit more for photo opportunities. I felt the price was a bit high but not terrible for this approximately two hour trip. I would recommend this tour and guide service.

Rent the ATVs from Gecko's Island Adventures (the two-fer package adds the jet ski) and have a great day! We enjoyed the tour on the ATVs, which allowed us to see St. Croix from unique vantage points. Jose, the guide, was kind, patient, polite, and knowledgeable. The jet ski was a great way to cool off as we zipped along... More
