I was traveling with a group of 6 people (1 child) and we just happened upon Dawuud while walking around St. Thomas. We were nervous about finding a tour that wasn't offered through Carnival....but we took our chances and were VERY pleased! Several people in my group do Crossfit and we were trying to find the only Crossfit gym on... More

Dawuud is outstanding. He is very flexible and loves sharing information and telling history. My Iphone battery went dead because of all the photo ops from lizards to humming birds to fruit to flowers and awesome views. He is very into plants, herbs and fruits and you will get see, feel and taste. Fresh Mango from the tree and other... More

We were looking for a tour of the "real" St. Thomas. Dawuud provide that and MORE. Like the other reviews say, he is a very knowledgable guy! Every moment of the tour was filled with tidbits on history and culture of the island, or a plant that we had just driven by. We especially enjoyed the tour of the botany... More

Dawuud was so knowledgeable. We enjoyed his sense of humor and the background on the native herbs and fruit, etc. that grew on St. Thomas. I, myself, am disabled and use a walker and he was very accommodating to my needs. His driving was excellent. I especially appreciated how he would give us the heads-up of a photo op before... More

We did the beach tour and had a fun morning driving all over the island. Eric was our driver/guide and had lots to share and did a great job of navigating the crazy hills. We didn't feel rushed at any of the stops, and enjoyed the intro to the history and plant life on the island. Eric picked up some... More

We recently visited St. Thomas as part of a Caribbean cruise and had planned our own walk about Charlotte Amalie from information available from various travel sources on the internet. As we were finishing our walk and commencing the return to our boat we came across Dawuud who was now in his sales mode and speaking to walkers on main... More

Our tour did not get off to a good start on January 24 when Dawuud showed up 30 minutes late for the 9:30 am pickup at our B & B. Dawuud apologized and said he "had issues to deal with". We sat in the back of an open air truck while Dawuud talked into a microphone held in his hand... More

We apologize for this tardiness and have no excuses except that it was difficult for our driver to find. Your same driver was stuck in traffic and was late in picking you up yes. He tried calling you and left a message. We will provide a partial refund in order to compensate for the inconvenience. We hope you try us... More

Dawuud (his real name is Najee Ullah) is a walking encyclopedia on history, culture, botany, etc.-much more than just sightseeing. I took this tour by myself 5 yrs ago, on a cruise where I met my new husband! This month we both visited St. Thomas again on an anniversary cruise, so we had to find this guy! He took just... More

I booked this tour online and was a little worried about what we would get for a tour. I didn't need to worry!! Dawuud picked us up from the cruise and offered to buy us coffee and a blueberry muffin! We said that we had just eaten breakfast, but go ahead and stop for a coffee for yourself. We were... More

My husband and I visited St. Thomas recently as a stop on our 7 day cruise. We met Dawuud in the shopping area and were convinced to take his tour by his easy personality and winning smile!
