This tour was great. We saw so much of the island and not just the touristy stuff but the real island. Dawuud was so informative!

I read reviews before booking this tour on St. Thomas and the word "energetic" came up again and again. To say the least, this tour guide lifts the entire group with his energy and knowledge of his island. The tour is wonderful. Lots of history, lots of information about flora and fauna, architecture, views, stops for photo ops. And on... More

This young man is remarkable. He seems younger than he is because he is doing what he wants to do in life. He is a painter, a writer (published), a performer, a teacher and a tour guide. He also is an upbeat nice guy! Our tour was incredible. Dawuud's knowledge of the geology and history of his island is second... More

Our hosts at "At home in the Tropics"(great B&B!) recommended Dawuud Nyamekye, owner of this fine company to show us around. He is so knowledgable, has amazing energy, and you can tell he loves his job.

After doing much research on Trip Advisor, I finally chose this tour company. I was so happy I did! Dawuud was an expetional tour guide. He had a wealth of knowledge of the flora, fauna and history of the island. He has great passion and pride in what he does. He showed us all the highlights of the island -... More

Booked a tour with this company month's in advance. They were very responsive to my emails and answered my many questions. The customer service is top notch. We toured with Dawuud yesterday. He met us at the port upon our ship's arrival at the scheduled time. He was very punctual which is a must for me when we are visiting... More

There was a mix-up with my reservation, otherwise I'd give the tour 5 stars. However, when I called asking if I'd missed the meeting point after the stated meeting time passed, I was immediately assured there was some miscommunication and that they'd have someone there as soon as possible. When the guide arrived, it appeared there'd been a misprint between... More

We went on a historic tour of the island with Dawuud. He was very professional and knowledgeable and his insights on not only the local history but also the plants and their medicinal uses were impressive. Thanks Dawuud for a fun, educational and memorable day in St. Thomas.

We took a Disney Cruise to St. Thomas and booked a tour with Caribbean Historical Tours separate from the Port Excursions that Disney offered because their island tours just didnt seem to be as comprehensive as the way this tour was described. We were looking for something that gave us history of the island and we we not dissapointed! Our... More

Caribbean Historical Tours is a top drawer act! Well managed and organized. Dawuud, our tour guide was punctual, knowledgable, friendly and willing to go above and beyond to provide us with a memorable experience. We chose one of two historical tours they offer and found it well worth it. Would definitely recommend them to other travelers and would use them... More
