Rented bikes from Susan and Butch , and enjoyed a great scenic tour of Water Island the easy way on bikes. When we had a small glitch Butch was there in 5min with a replacement bike and fresh water. Great Way to Spend the Day

Susan Miller was a great host on this adventure. After a short water-taxi ride, we were greeted on the island where a van was waiting to take us to one of the highest point of the island with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Our guides explained very well how to use the bicycles provided and took us down the... More

We chose a bike excursion on Water Island to escape the crowds on St Thomas. We were one of 5 large cruise ships in port that day. Didn't want to be one of 15,000 people trying to get into the same t-shirt shop. Even though Susan and Agnes are no longer leading a guided bike tours, renting their bikes seemed... More

It's so easy to get to water island (5 minute ferry), and once you're there, why not see ALL of it via BIKE! There are amazing hilltop views all over the island, with each one offering you a new vantage point, surrounded by blue waters and refreshing island breezes. The owner picked us up at the dock and drove us... More

This was one of the best parts of our one month stay on St. Thomas. It was a unique experience. The bike path was breathtakingly beautiful, we had a lot of fun! We truly enjoyed riding with Ms. Agnes. We ended our tour at Honeymoon Beach. This beach had the clearest water and whitest sand that we have seen...and we've... More

My sister and I and two teen boy cousins went on the mountain biking/swimming tour on Water Island. We had a safe and fun ride with the help of responsible, knowledgeable guides. The guides were all retirees who had lived on the island for years. I felt we were in the hands of responsible adults who would take good care... More

After cruising for several days, we (5 teenagers and their parents were ready to roll and get some exercise! Susan gave us a very interesting history of the area and then we were able to ride with a leader and see the excellent views and even feed hibiscus to some hungry iguanas. We ended the excursion with a relaxing beach... More

After a brief water taxi ride to a neighboring island of St. Thomas we proceeded to our bikes for a ride on an island without all the traffic and congestion of St. Thomas. The couple that owned the tour were simply the best tour operators I’ve come across and did everything they could to ensure the ride was enjoyable while... More

a leisurely & scenic bike tour that I'd recommend to anyone visiting St. Thomas. The beach at the end of the ride is what I enjoyed the most as it was a beautiful and relaxing setting. The staff is knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about the island. This is not a bike tour for those looking for an extreme mountain trail... More

I guess my expectations were a little high. We took this as part of a cruise. There were approximately 14 people on the tour. We ride recreationally at home. I have a Trek Hybrid at home where we do short rides of 10 miles and longer rides of 30-35 miles. It took us almost 1/2 an hour to reach the... More
