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

We had a great time with Gecko on our ATV tour. We were staying on the island but the cruise ship that day had been late to arrive so they had to readjust our start time a little bit. No big deal at all, they were very accomodating. We had signed up for the 2fer so we rode the jet... More

We rented two vehicles. My husband and 13 year old son road one and my 13 year old daughter and I rode the other. After only taking only a minute or two to get the feel for it, these vehicles were easy to drive. We had an absolute blast! We were able to drive them for about an hour and... More

We did the ATV excursion on 3/29/14. It was easy to find their office from the cruise port. Jamal, our guide, was amazing and was very informative about St. Croix and St. Thomas. It was the best excursion we did on our trip. The beach afterwards was beautiful and a lot of fun. The ATV's were Honda 500's. The back... More

Last stop of our RCI cruise was in St. Croix (3/14/14). I was hesitant to book an excursion outside of the cruise line, but due to the glowing reviews decided to go for it. Boy are we glad we did!! Their office is barely a two minute walk from the peir, very easy to find, and has bathrooms nearby. Cindy... More

We had a great time on this excursion! There were only 2 atv's and 4 people + the guide. Where were all the unlucky people from the cruiseship? I am so glad I found this excursion on Tripadvisor! Jose gave us some great insight into the island and its history. Beautiful views! At the end of the tour we had... More

We arrived on a cruise ship and this was our excursion for the day. We walked to their office from the pier. It was fun to ride the ATV and see the island. We had a great guide who gave us some island history on our stops. At the end of the tour they will provide a taxi to take... More

We had a great ATV tour last week (Feb 2014) with Jose. We were the only ones on the tour as it was not a cruise ship day. If you are staying on the island we recommend choosing a day when a ship is not in port in order to avoid crowds at the activities and on the beaches around... More

A short walk from the cruise ship pier puts you at the office of Geckos ATV tours where you are fitted with helmets, then picked up by a taxi and taken to the beach about 5 minutes away where you find the ATVs. After a short briefing on the use of these beasts, you set out driving the ATV on... More

We did the two-fer package, the ATV/seadoo combo and it was pretty fun. The ATV went into the back areas of the island, through some rainforest and we stopped to see some interesting sights. The ATV part of the tour was 1.5 hours. Then off to the sea doos which was a one hour rental. We didn't stay out the... More

First timers on ATV beware! You need a lot of upper body strength to navigate ATV (especially with a passenger on board) on portions of the trail, especially at the very top, where path is narrow and slanted precariously in portions towards drop off on cliff. Most of the trail was enjoyable, on paved roads, dirt paths, just the very... More
