We got picked up from our hotel and dropped off at St.Johns where we met our guide who was called Flava. He was absolutely incredible telling us all about the island and making everyone on the truck laugh. He made us all feel very welcome. The way he took us there and back were some of the best views we have ever seen. We went to devils bridge and stopped off at Betty’s Hope to have some lunch. He never once rushed us and we could take as many pictures as we wanted. Stingray city was also just incredible, all the guides were extremely helpful giving you instructions on what to do and not do, the ones in the water were just as great calming you down and making you laugh to take your mind off all the massive stingrays!!! This was 100% worth the money we paid and a memory and experience that we will never forget. Thank you everyone involved.

Got picked up at Sandals at 8:45. First I can’t say enough about our guide Les. He greeted us and guided us to the vehicle. Les was extremely personable and had great knowledge as well as a great sense of humor.He really made the day special. We toured the island through St John’s as well as many small villages which really gives you a feel for the island. We stopped at Devils Bridge before going to Stingray City. At Stingray City you are brought to one of two boats for a ten minute trip to a stand alone pier by the sand bar. Once in the water you will have a opportunity to be photographed with a Stingray. After that you we be able to feed them if you dare. Guides are helpful in getting you time with the Stingrays. After returning to shore you will be offered a rum punch. What makes this excursion special is Stingray City is the ONLY tour that will be there. Some other Stingray encounters will have six or seven other companies at one location.We returned to Sandals around 2:45. I strongly recommend this excursion and hope you have Les guiding you.

I had the awesome opportunity to have Shouwyn Francis as my guide. Mr. Francis was friendly and very knowledgeable. He took us all around the island and I learned so much. He also provided food and drinks during our lunch break and let me tell you the food was so delicious. He helped make my first time in Antigua a memorable one and I hope I see him again if I come back. I was so happy I invested in this tour and its a must do!

Our daughter Mary, who was celebrating a birthday with a Caribbean vacation, invited us to go along with her and her husband to experience Stingray City. We were somewhat concerned about the dangers posed as we know someone whose leg became paralyzed after he was stung by a ray. In addition, my wife who is nearing 80, has hip implants. Nevertheless, we went along and to our great delight we were able not only to get in and out of the water without difficulty but to move about and swim and dive among the rays with the greatest of ease. The guides were very helpful, informative and reassuring and we can recommend this trip to all.

This is an experience that is like no other. While there really is no danger, one can't help but be unnerved when a huge heavy fleshy thing rubs against them from behind. You are told explicitly not to jump, yell, scream but for some they can't handle it...my husband for one :-D I loved it. I didn't hold one but I pet one and it was lovely.

What an adventure! No one in our group of six was disappointed with this excursion. We all booked our tour through Island Routes at Sandals Grande Antigua for March 1, 2018; however, the actual company doing the excursion was Tropical Adventures Antigua.

Our driver, Travis, was friendly, accommodating and a fountain of information. He asked for our preferences and we proceeded for the day. Travis, thank you very much for one of the most memorable excursions we have ever had!

Stingray City was fun, informative and educational, made more so by Kendon, one of the guides at Stingray City. Doing this was an opportunity to interact and understand creatures that are often misunderstood. It was very safe and all guides did their upmost to make it so.

Following Stingray City, we had a nice quiet lunch at Betty’s Hope, an abandoned sugar plantation. Then it was off to our final destination for the day – Devil’s Bridge!

A very strong Rum Punch was included along the way after lunch!

This was, without a doubt, one of the best day excursions we have ever experienced. Well worth the $135 USD per person.

This was such a good trip. Rays are free to come and see you or not, no fences or traps. You get up close and really can spend all the time you want in the water with them. Absolutely awesome experience, best of whole trip to Antigua

Great day out for all the family, our guide was brilliant, told us all about the island & great fun too. The stingrays are quite an experience, not for everyone, my older son loved them, my younger son was less sure, but still enjoyed the whole adventure,
Lunch was also great
