“Awesome time with "The Mailman"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We sailed on Freedom of the Seas and visited St. Maarten on August 1. We were extremely pleased with Bernard's Tours and especially The Mailman. What a great time we had. The tour was about 6 hours but went by very quickly. We visited Orient and Maho Beach, and a couple of other spots. We had a wonderful time in a beautiful place. Book this tour, you won't be sorry. Don't forget to try the rum punch!

“The Best Way to Experience St. Maarten!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This was amazing, I highly recommend the private tour. Our guide "Mailman" was exceptional. He clearly was knowledgeable about the island, it's history and culture, and the best spots to explore. I got to hold an iguana and an urchin in the same day! Mailman also provided complimentary drinks as well, which made the tour that much better. Stopped at an iguana farm, a sand bar leading to a coral island, 2 beaches, a French bakery, and even stopped for the best views of the harbor. He let us decide the length of time at each spot which made the tour that much sweeter. BOOK THIS TOUR AND ASK FOR MAILMAN!!!

“Jumping on the bandwagon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We loved our day with Mailman on St. Maarten! I booked based upon reviews here and on the cruise critic message boards as we were there for a day on the Oasis of the Seas. For the money, it's the best way to see the island! We traveled in a mini van - very comfortably, with our family of 5 as well as four other groups. Our kids, ages 10, 12 and 15 loved the iguana farm, Calvin the sea urchin man, Orient Beach even if it was raining when we arrived (and they saw a "nude dude" - which we'd discussed prior to our tour!) and the baguettes in Marigot. Great day and would recommend to everyone!

“2nd time around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

This was our second visit to St Maarten and our second trip with Bernard tours. We ended up with a private tour because the second family never showed. We had a nice time seeing the sights with a quick hour and a half at the beach. Big plus was wifi at our beach location and our guide DJ was great with out two kids. We stopped off for some pastries at Serafinas and the treats were tasty. My only suggestion is that they skip the iguana farm since its kinds run down. Other that that its money well spent if you want to see both sides of the island and gain some insight into the history.

“Absolutely Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

A group of 12 of us did a private tour with "Mailman" who was just awesome. He was a lot of fun and was so informative. He took us the whole way around the island and let us choose what we wanted to do. The rum punch was an unexpected bonus and it was fabulous. Yes, it is as strong as they say. We will definitely be doing Bernard's tours again and recommend it to anyone!
