“Excellent Time with Andre!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

My husband and I just returned from St Lucia for our Honeymoon. After reading all the wonderful reviews, I initially contacted Andre regarding transfers to/from our hotel. I later requested a day tour of St. Lucia also. Andre ALWAYS responded very quickly to all my requests. The day tour was excellent. Andre showed us the highlights of St Lucia and explained much of the history and culture of the island. We requested a stop at the Rum Distillery for their rum tasting...so much fun! Since we told Andre we were on our Honeymoon, he suggested lunch at Dasheene at Ladera. The restaurant is high on a mountain, located between the Pitons. It was a beautiful view and very romantic lunch. To end our tour, we told Andre we would like to go snorkeling and he suggested Anse Chastanet.Beach. The trip to the beach was a challenge. The road is narrow, hilly and very bumpy. It had just rained and the road was wet. Getting up the steepest hill was not easy. On the first two attempts, we couldn't make it because of the wet road. Andre didn't want us to be disappointed and didn't give up. The third attempt was a success! We made it and the snorkeling was great. Overall, Andre has a warm, friendly personality, is very professional and makes your day fun and special by adding unexpected details. He has a lot of pride regarding St Lucia and is a safe, excellent driver. Book with Andre...you will not be disappointed!!!!!

“The best of the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Andre is one of the most professional tour guides that we have had the pleasure to hire in all the islands we have visited. He picked us up at the cruise terminal on time and showed us all around the island including the active volcano, the Piton mountains, a botanical garden, and a fishing village, along with many other sights along the way. We spent most of the day with him and he basally gave us a non-stop informational lesson (including several songs) about the island and the people that live there. I highly recommend Andre for your next visit to the island of St Lucia. You won't be disappointed.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Andre picked us up at the cruise terminal and we set off down the coast to the Pitons. Along the way we visited a banana plantation and Marigot Bay. Andre sang to us, gave us Piton Beer, had some native bread and visited an active volcano. He was a prince and we would recommend Andre for your next visit to St Lucia!!

“An excellent tour to St. Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We were a group of 7, visiting St. Lucia in January 2014. We found Andre through trip advisor and we booked with him our rides to and from the airport, the 7+ hour "ANDRE'S SPECIAL" day tour and also a two hour dinner where Andre took us to a traditional seafood bar in Gros Islet.

The service was *Excellent*! Andre was very professional, he made us feel very welcome and comfortable, he explaining the history of the island and even sang to us! (he has a great voice too!)

Highly Recommended!

“Hands down the best tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

We arrived in port at Castries,St Lucia on December 8,2013 on our 14 day Celebrity Eclipse cruise, we were met at the terminal by Andre as advertised. He has a newer a/c van. The tour was from Castries to Anse Chastanet Resort for a beach break and lunch then back to the port. Along the way our party of six were treated to many stops for photos and information about St. Lucia, we stopped at a fishing village and the drive in volcanoe, we were also treated to three songs sung to us by Andre as well as being treated to casaba bread. All il all we all agreed that Andres tour was the best tour off the eight islands hands down, would recommend Andres A-Touring to anyone planning a trip to St. Lucia.
