      100% Hospitality
      There are no words to describe the hospitality shown to us by this group! We had a personalized tour of the island for just the two of us, and it was the perfect idea to get the lay of the land for the rest of our stay. Ricky and Candy showed us where to shop, eat, beach, as well as trees and the nature specific to St Martin. We also used the service another day because they took such great care of us.

      Great Day in St. Maarten
      My wife and I went to St.Maarten on a cruise. We booked a private tour through Diedrick SXM Tours and we’re blessed to have Ricky as our guide. He told history of the island and memories of growing up there, took us to places we wanted to see plus some off the beaten path we didn’t know about, gave us ample time to do what we wanted and was very friendly. I would highly recommend Diedrick SXM Tours and especially Ricky. It was a great day and at the end we felt as if we had made a new friend. Thank you for a great experience!

      Sint Maarten in a Day!
      Family of four, two young adult sons with us, cruising for the first time. Sint Maarten is absolutely beautiful! Our driver Glenn was wonderful, very knowledgeable, accomodating what we wanted to see and always willing to make an extra stop for pictures. We felt very safe with his driving and his recommendations for shopping and a lunch spot. It was easy to see how much he loves his country and welcomes tourists to the area. I would ask for Glenn again if I returned.

      WOW!!! What a great tour and brilliant value for money! Diederick was knowledgeable and so friendly, he couldn't do enough for us, he included my 13yr old who was the only child on our bus be he wasn't excluded at all, I would highly recommend this company, there was unfortunately a woman who complained I've read her review and totally disagree with everything shes wrote, sadly you will always get one that you can't please no matter what is offered to her which was above and beyond, Diederick did not deserve to be treated with her attitude whatsoever. Me my husband and son and everyone on our bus had the loveliest day with lots of laughs and that was down to a well organised tour at amazing value! I wouldn't hesitate to book on our return, thanks for a great day Diederick and Co x

      A very disappointing trip.
      45 minutes late starting off on our tour. It was over booked so they put 8 of us in a taxi and consequently we had absolutely no information about the island. A taxi ride as opposed to a tour. The itinerary had changed so we had only 30minutes at a beautiful sandy beach and they left us for 2 hours on the airport beach which was quite frankly, hell on earth. Dierdrick and his wife were a very abrasive couple, very rude and not in the least helpful. After much discussion and I’ll feelings, we did get a small refund. I would not recommend them at all.

      Our tour with Ricky Halley
      My wife and I just spent a wonderful day with Ricky, our guide. We we're lucky enough to have him all to ourselves. He took us all over the island and showed us places "off the beaten path". It was absolutely amazing. We fell in love with Saint Martin and he was a big part of that. The secret stash of rum punch was an added bonus! Thanks Ricky. We'll be back to your beautiful home.

      They pulled a NO SHOW!
      Diederick the tour company never showed up. Talking with the supervisor there they never showed up the day before either. The supervisor managed to get us another private cab and driver who was excellent. He is George Phipps Taxi 0096--- 1-721-586-1085. George is an excellent guide fun to be with and very personable and accommodating. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed with George.

      Great tour
      We got to see everything we wanted to see on this customizable tour. There was plenty of time to see sites, learn about the island, and do some snorkeling. Great deal.

      Our tour was excellent, informative and full of detail regarding both the Dutch and French sides of the Island. Both had spectacular and many unique attributes. The island folks going about their daily activities, the variety of restaurants and many casinos. The island is in final stages of recovery from the hurricane devastation. The Island is working hard to be ready for upcoming. SXM-St. Martin Tours is the best you can get. We highly recommend them.

      Great trip!
      I went to the island with a friend and we were so glad we came across this tour. Fantastic, informative and fun. While the island is still recovering, we got a well rounded tour. They knew just where the best food was at the LOLOs and where to shop in Phillipsburg. Diederick and Can are both so sweet and we were happy to spend the day with them. I highly recommend the tour!

      WOW! Great location.
      I loved the location and would go again. The food and drinks were typical bar service. The servers did not come out to the beach, so you do have to go to the bar yourself.. but no big deal.

    The beach was great. The planes flying over was such an experience. Waves were very exciting and rough though

    The driver and the the lady guide were not very friendly. Did not point out many sites for us. The van did not have license plates.

    This was a fantastic tour to see both Orient and Maho beach and both sides of the Island. Our driver, Clive, was so helpful and allowed us to spend a relaxing amount of time at both beaches. He was a great guide as well while we were in the nice air conditioned van. I would definitely book this again through Viator/Diederick SXM tours. Thank you for giving us an amazing experience. We look forward to coming back!
