“A perfect surprise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We hadn't booked a tour for our recent visit to st Lucia on a cruise ship but took the chance we would find someone who could take us to a nice beach. We did...Hugo! Due to some other cancellation we met Hugo who offered to transport us to a lovely beach. In a clean, cool and very comfortable car, Hugo took us for a relaxing transfer to Rodney bay. On the way he gave us lots of information about the island, it's people and some local restaurant tips. We took his advice and he was spot on with his tip on spice of India restaurant...it was superb and very reasonable. Hugo came back later in the day as negotiated and happily waited while we finished our drinks and lunch. St Lucia is definitely on my return to list and I would recommend anyone going to st Lucia to book with Hugo first.

“Hugo's Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

In Feb/March of this year we visited St Lucia, I had pre arranged a tour using Trip advisor... from the moment of contact Hugo was the ultimate professional efficient and flexible to our requirements. We both enjoyed our tour so so much felt comfortable and safe with Hugo who allowed the trip to go at our pass so no pressure to get to the next location or mad driving!! St Lucia was on of my favourite islands and this is down to the amazing views we were able to see alongside the extensive cultural, historical information provided by Hugo. His passion for this beautiful island shone through. Can't recommend enough..

“Great Private tour guide - why pay double on the cruise ship!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have toured St. Lucia twice with Hugo and haven't been disappointed. He gives you a better tour than the cruise ships offer for half the price, plus, it is a private tour so if you want to stop, he stops. If you don't want to stop, he keeps going. If you want to stay somewhere for twice the time, no problem, he is working for you. In our first tour, we took a half day tour, and then he delivered us to a charter fishing boat we had rented for the afternoon. When we realized we hadn't planned for lunch, Hugo stopped at a place for us. We found that it didn't open for another hour, but being in a rush to catch our fishing charter, Hugo talked them into opening early and making us some cold sandwiches for the trip. On our second tour with Hugo, we took a full day island tour that he catered to our specifications.

At first, we were worried about taking a tour that wasn't affliliated with the cruise line, but Hugo put our worries at ease. His van is up to date, has A/C, and we had no trouble hearing or understanding him, even in the back seat. If you find someone you trust, the only worry with booking a tour not through the cruise ship is that if you aren't back on-board, they will leave without you. Because of this, we always allow an extra couple hours at the end of the day in the unlikely event of a breakdown, flat tire, etc. However, we have never had a problem. Hugo is a very trustworthy gentleman and he will be our guide every time we visit St. Lucia!!

“Hugo + St Lucia = Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We booked a private tour with Hugo prior to our cruise vacation based on everyone's recommendations and they were absoulutely right!! Hugo's knowledge of the island, his explanations and patience made for a terrific experience. So perfect, we booked an island vacation in a few months and can't wait for Hugo to show us more of the island. Book early since I'm sure he's becoming more popular with each fare.

“Fabulous tour of the island - best part of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Hugo Tours provided my husband and I a fabulous, relaxing and interesting tour of beautiful St. Lucia. Hugo took us to all the sites being sensitive to the crowds, so we got a sense of having the island to ourselves. His respect for fellow islanders, and obvious love of St. Lucia proved that Hugo is a professional who takes his work seriously. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable day, Hugo - great job - we highly recommend you.
