        Super Organised Kayaking/ Snorkeling Antigua
        These guys are awesome. We took a bus ride to the Mangroves. Given a professional briefing then kayaking. Followed by speed boat to reef for optional snorkeling. Then reverse kayaking trip back. Delivery back to boat well on time. Lovely people and a credit to Antigua.

        Chaotic Transportation
        We took the Kayak and Snorkel and beach excursion. They put us on a bus with others going to same excursion, then drove around (seemed like in circles) then had part of our group get out and get in a car. Then they picked up a group going just to the beach. At the beach, they had the 6 going to kayak and snorkel to get (crawl) into a small 6 people vehicle and we drove 10-20 minutes more. The 2 guys handling the kayak and snorkel were great and that part was great, but then we had to get back in that little 6 people thing and they took us to the beach where we could eat (but it was almost gone by the time we got there) . We thought we could get on the nice bus that brought us as far as the beach, but no...we had to crawl into the small 6 person vehicle. Wouldn't recommend this tour. It was 4+ hours BECAUSE it was so far away; spent a whole lot of the time traveling and changing transportation.

        Great Guides, Tour Not So Much
        We booked this tour through Expedia Shore Excursions. There were 28 people signed up for the tour and were divided into two groups of 14. Tour guide Alexis was the highlight with his knowledge and humor. The tour itself failed to live up to our expectations. I expected to see an historic home with artifacts. We actually visited the 1970's home of Yvonne & Brian MacMillan. Yvonne is a nice lady whose family history on the island goes back a couple of centuries. The home more resembles that of a hoarder as there are items everywhere. Every surface is covered with items collected over the years. Without them being displayed and organized there was little context for what we were seeing. We couldn't separate the rare historical items from the cheap collectables. The black pineapple plantation turned out to be a small patch of 20-30 young plants in a field. The main plantation was in the distance. Alexis did his best to describe pineapple farming but we wanted more. Lunch and free time at Ffryes beach became the highlight of the tour. We were greeted at Ffryes Tiki Bar with a fruit or rum punch. Lunch was BBQ chicken breast, salad, rice and noodles. Food was good and we had a chance to swim in the ocean. Guide Alexis and driver Marlon did their best to give us a good tour but they were hampered by the itinerary.

        Highly recommend The Antiguan Experience, Heavenly Tours
        We booked The Antiguan Experience through Vacations To Go and were VERY pleased with our tour, it was a fantastic day! George (with the biggest smile) was our tour guide and Melvin our driver, both were professional, fun and informative. We toured MacMillan House, was able to speak with the owners, met their talkative birds and tasted the sauer sop tea. Then we headed to a pineapple plantation, tried a sweet ‘black pineapple’ and got a lesson in many of the types of trees on the property. We saw lots of sugar mills and learned so much about the history of Antigua. Our last stop was the incredible Fries Beach, quite honestly one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. They served us a wonderful lunch and we sipped the local rum punch. Highly recommend!

        Great time in Antigua!
        We had a great trip - called the Antiguan Experience. Lorenzo was our guide and he was fabulous; very knowledgeable and a great personality. Jacqui is his partner and she is a great artist and has a great voice. We started with a visit to a private home that was amazing. Also learned about the production of pineapple and the old sugar mills. Ended up on a beautiful beach with a typical West Indies lunch. All in all a great day!

        A comprehensive and exceedingly informative tour!
        Testimonial For Heavenly Tours Lorenzo delivered an unbelievably fabulous tour of beautiful Antigua. He is part of owner Jacqui Phoenix’s exceptional team of tour guides, and his expertise, professionalism, and courtesy were excellent! Since I was the company’s only traveler for the day, my tour was extended and customized to take me to four of the country’s seven parishes! We stopped for delicious meals at Cafe Bella, and I had authentic seafood water (a rich seafood soup) at Aunty Carvel’s Cook Shop. I saw the historic St. John’s Church and St. Peter’s Anglican Church, where slaves built this magnificent structure. I marveled at the plentiful red, orange, and white flamboyant trees throughout our tour. A stop for affordable souvenirs at the Caribbean Resources store ended this amazing tour of a wonderful Island country. I highly recommend Heavenly Tours to anyone visiting Antigua and Barbuda!

        Our "Beach Tour" was Indeed Heavenly!
        Our beach tour with made very special by a special lady we called P who entertained us on the way to the beach, served us, rum punch, and a tasty spiced chicken lunch while we were there. The beach and water were perfect and clean and bathroom facilities were available. We had comfortable chairs, and an umbrella to relax and enjoy our day. P even gave each of us a delicious mango from her yard. I would definitely do this tour again while visiting Antiqua.

        Great tour
        Went on a cruise to 5 different islands and this was the best excursion we went on all week. Alexis was a fun, amazing and funny tour guide. Food was great and so was the show that Jackie put on. She is also an amazing artist. Highly recommend!!

        A waste of time
        We found it very boring. We didn't understand the man with the microphone most of the time. We had 2 stops on the way to the beach, A house full of old boring junk, and a trip to a pineapple farm, which was of no interest to us. The meal , according to the menu board, should have been a choice of Lobster, fish and chicken. We were only offered the chicken.

        Quiet beach away from crowds.
        This was our second time doing the Ffryes Beach Break - our first visit was 2019. We did not book any tours or other activities just the inclusive beach break which included chairs, umbrella and lunch. Our first visit had a lot more people in 2019 so it was a different experience and we loved it so much we booked it again for 2023. When we arrived this time, there were only 4 people in our group and our driver was not as talkative but still very polite. Two other guests went kayaking while we were dropped at the beach at around 10am. We were introduced to Lorenzo who told us others would be arriving later and he made sure we had chairs and anything we needed while we waited. We had the entire beach to ourselves for about 2.5 hours. It was AMAZING!! Eventually two other buses showed up for lunch after their tours. There was plenty of food for everyone and drinks were priced nice. The food was grilled chicken, fried noodles, rice, salad and fresh pineapple. I thought it was very authentic. If you want a posh beach break with waiters at your beck and call, do not book this. But if you want a quiet beautiful beach away from the crowds and an authentic experience, book this. We always felt safe and would do it again.

        Excellent tour with Jackie
        Such an amazing time with Miss Jackie and what a terrific voice! Loved going to an islanders personal home in the mountains. The food was amazing and the beach stunning! I highly recommend and suggest you ask for Jackie who will keep you rolling all day with her humor!

        Scary awful experience
        We were picked up at the cruise port and waited over a half hour to depart with another couple. We were dropped off at a beach and left. The bartender was supposed to be helping us, or so we were told. He set up his bar while we sat on the 2 beach chairs he brought us. (There were FOUR of us, mind you). After 1.5 HOURS on the beach, we hunted the bartender down and he told us that there were other people who were coming, whose boat was late. After another half hour, we asked to speak to someone and be taken back to the dock. The first words out of the 'office person's mouth, was YOU WILL NOT BE GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK. We asked for a cab back to the dock, because our excursion time was over and were told that a driver was coming. Our original driver, in what appeared to be a personal vehicle DID finally come back to the beach with two more people whose ship docked about 2 hours after ours did and were told that we could go kayak now. We were honestly afraid that we would miss our departure and so asked to be taken back to the boat The screaming office person kept calling our driver (we could hear the screaming). We finally got back to the dock, where our driver told us that we would be getting our money back because it was too windy to kayak. ***************STEER CLEAR************************

        OFF THE BEATEN PATH ENJOYED TIME WITH THE LOCALS
        Not sure I have the correct tour but it was provided by Heavenly Tours and our guide was Jackie. She was awesome and informative. We stopped at a local house that I found interesting, it felt like I was in a museum. It's nice to get off the beaten path and here and see the history of this lady and her husband. She is 4th generation on that land. Next we went to see a Black Pineapple farm although it's trying to get back in operation after the Covid shutdown so it will take time. Our last stop was at the beach and a local beach bar/restaurant and we enjoyed the local food. Again I like off the beaten path and not your typical tourist traps. Jackie is an asset for this tour.

      Jackie was super late, and felt like she could’ve allowed to do my painting on my own. But over all she was full of vibes and was a great teacher.

      Thanks to Jacqui & Andrew we had the most wonderful time on our whole caribbean trip! Jacqui shared her knowledge about the beautiful island and entertained like a star while Andrew drove the bus through the steep and narrow roads like a pro! The tour was outstanding and if you want to experience Antigua with lots of fun and Guides who shares her art, singing and food/drinks with you then this is a MUST DO on your list. We highly recommend it with lots of best greetings from Germany!

      HORRIBLE she was not ready or set up. She left us at p/u location told us her driver would bring us, as if she had other customers. We were the only customers. She cooked us lunch in a dirty kitchen, food was mediocre. Her nephew wanted my cigarettes. She served us old wine. We had to meet her at KFC the next day for our art work. She forgot the canvases and we had to use old stuff. We met her at a church way up a hill, then traveled down to a beach which again was not set up. We were so lost and bored. Her guidance was horrific as well. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE DO NOT BOOK THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Dear Ana. Deeply Apologized for your experience. I personally came to meet you but you showed up 45 minutes late. You did not want to take the tour as we designed it . You insisted you want to drive in your own vehicle because you had a rental car and this changed and reorganised our activity for the day. We went out of the way to accommodate your requests, Your lunch was prepared at the art Gallery kitchen which I showed you and brought to the location on the beach. I had everything all set up for you at the Art Gallery where I had other guest painting. Painting in our organized atmosphere would have made the experience memorable. Once again I deeply apologize.
