We sat there filing out paperwork, listening to 23 year old kids tellus about how they had to reset their lives to do this job, and great their photos will be and what a great price they are. so a three hour tour turned out to be two due to the amount of time we spent sitting there doing nothing and getting lectured. Guide Zulu spoke to us like we were five year olds. We were rushed through the snorkel section which wasn't too big of a deal since there wasn't much to see. We were forced to wear life vest to swim and snorkel. They recommend water shoes due to the difficulty of the hike and come to find out it is only so they can sell you stuff. The hike section we were rushed through and told to hurry only to arrive at the "blow hole" where they spent 15 minutes taking pictures with ONLY their cameras so they can try to sell you a $45 cd with pictures. Come on, a discs costs how much? At the finish of the tour, we were forced to listen to them try and sell us photos and then we were quizzed by 23 year old kids in the most patronizing way. Not a single tour guide was from St.Thomas or could tell us anything about the history, culture, flag, life. This was an Eco tour at it's worst!
