    What to Expect
    Where else can you find a beautiful island shared by two nations? On this Caribbean island you will have the opportunity to explore and examine the 37 square miles of St Maarten/St Martin's fascinating history, cultures and sights as this tour takes you to the most scenic vistas and towns while your guide educates and entertains with information and stories.
    The tour will will begin with a historical element as you visit the Great Salt Pond located in Philipsburg (Dutch Capital Town). As you drive towards the North of the island with photo stops at Dawn Beach and Oyster Bay, there will be a stop at Corilita Bay, a natural reserve overlooking the French island of St Barth.
    Next you will get to feed the iguanas before a drive towards French Quarter, the first village settled by the French in 1629 and a stop at Paradise View for a panoramic view of the ever-popular Orient Beach and some of the islets. Next is a drive through Grand Case, a quaint village lined with restaurants on both sides of the narrow street with a diverse selection of cuisines, and a pure white soft sand beach with the British island of Anguilla in the backdrop.
    With two sides of the island, there are two capital towns, and for the next stop you will visit Marigot, the charming capital town of St Martin. Take in the French atmosphere where shops line the colonial streets and an open-air bazaar surrounds the central square for arts, crafts and souvenirs lovers. Visit Fort Louis, a superbly restored fort built in the end of the 18th century. A climb up the steps is well worth the effort for panoramic views of Anguilla and the entire French capital.
    As you cross the symbolic border back to the Dutch side it will be time for the main attraction! Enjoy the ultimate experience in St Maarten at the Maho Beach! Rated number one in the world for extreme plane watching, the Maho Beach famously, known as the Airport Beach is a must visit!
    After Maho Beach you will take a drive through the cosmopolitan town of Simpson Bay and make a stop at Cole Bay Hill for the most breathtaking views on the island. Then it's on our way back to the cruise port with an optional drop-off in Philipsburg for guests who wants to explore the shopping mecca of the Caribbean.

    In fairness, the impact from hurricanes Irma and Maria is still very much in evidence 19 months after the wrought havoc on the region perhaps limiting what there is to see and experience. Nevertheless, we felt that our guide was more interested in driving around...More

    Loved this open flea market! Wish we could have spent more time here...wonderful souvenirs at a really great price. The people are so friendly without being pushy. They are willing to "wheel & deal". Local craftsmen...my favorite shopping experience of the 7 islands we cruised!...More

    I thinking the shopping you could probably do with a wheel chair but the rest of the jeep tour would be fairly hard and the beaches would be extremely hard? Getting in and out of the jeeps would be almost impossible, I think... More
