I highly recommend Elmo's island tour. It was the best day we had during one week in Antigua.
I arranged the booking via email. Elmo responded promptly and was able to schedule our tour on the preferred date. Elmo was very accommodating as we then had to reschedule our original tour date due to illness. He graciously spent Dec 24 with us when he surely had family matters that needed his attention. We had the great fortune to be the only clients that day and thus had a private tour. He was flexible in his timing and we were able to spend a little more time at locations of particular interest without having to consider the interests of other clients.
Elmo shared so much information about the interesting sights we visited or passed throughout the day and we learned a great deal about Antigua. We were staying on the east side of the island and really enjoyed seeing other areas, especially the Caribbean beaches as we usually stay on such beaches during our travels and not the rough Atlantic side of islands.
The day was very full - as I truly realized when telling a friend the itinerary and sights - but it was all at a comfortable, leisurely pace. It is amazing how much we did and saw in one day!
His van was clean, well-maintained and indeed airconditioned. I mention this only because we were in other taxi-vans in Antigua and Montserrat that were dirty, falling apart and not airconditioned! At those moments we were nostalgic for Elmo's van!
The lunch was delicious and served in a most scenic location. (The lunch was better than the meals at our resort.)
Elmo was very professional, kind, courteous, repectful and had a great sense of humour! It truly was a pleasure spending the day with him and exploring different areas of Antigua.
Will try to add some photos later.
Do not hesitate to arrange a tour with Elmo! Another reviewer refers to the the price. I would gladly pay more for this tour than the others on offer. You can't go wrong with Elmo.
