We were lucky enough to have a private tour for 4 of us. Freddie was a wonderful tour guide. He was knowledgeable and answered all questions. He had a great sense of humor and made sure that we had a fabulous time. We especially enjoyed stories of his life and of so many others. He relayed historical information about the culture and development of the island, as well as of those around St. Maarten. We had an opportunity to spend even more time with him at lunch at a Lolo that he recommended. The only negative for the day was the microphone/system. It was very hard to hear and make out, and we often missed what he said. Freddie attempted to correct this with a second microphone but there was little improvement. Not his fault, and he agreeably raised his voice to be heard. He often stopped for us to take pictures and offered flexibility for our timing at different locations.
Overall an amazing experience. Highly recommend!

Was not easy to find pickup location and Jo Junie adjusted pickup time due to change in ship arrival to give us time to find them. Would have been nice to know adjusted time. We got there quicker than driver so we needed to wait but we’ll worth the wait. It was just our party of 3 on tour. Etienne our driver was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about island history and fauna. He would see iguanas or flowers that he wanted to tell us more about and would make sure we got close to see and be able to take pictures. Also due to rain showers rather than spending time at beach, he drove to various areas.

Freddie is an excellent tour guide. One of, if not the best, we have ever had.

We were booked on the 1/2 day tour, but due to some system issues, there was a mix up and we ended up on the full day tour. VERY glad we did. (short version on mix up, there was one couple (us) on the 1/2 day, everyone else on the full day, a different couple showed up from a different ship, saying they had to be back early. With their systems down, it was logical to assume that was the 1/2 day couple. )

Anyhow, the tour was great. We got to see so many areas, hear so much history of the island. Freddie pointed out 1 or 2 homes owned by "stars" but that was it, thankfully. Other tours we have been on, they go on and on about meaningless "stars" (which would be 99.99% of them).

Due to traffic, the tour took longer than expected. But Freddie kept tabs on the time, and none of our stops were impacted. 90 minutes at X, was still 90 minutes at X. Just the transport time took longer. Again, our ship left much later, so that afforded that luxury, but other tour operators we have been on have shorted the tour, even when there was adequate "extra" time. Freddie did not do this. That made a world of difference.

Freddie was an amazing tour guide. He was very informative and had historical information during every phase of the tour. He asked us if there was anywhere special we wanted to go, and made sure to prioritize those places. He also took us to Rosemary’s restaurant which was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s show and definitely lived up to the hype. If you want a relaxing fun tour I highly recommend Freddie.

Great overview of the island. Just enough time spent at each stop. Freddie was a wonderful guide! Shared history of the island and his personal experiences as an island native, and pointed out interesting facts & sights all along the tour. Very entertaining and informative way to spend the day!

We signed up for a 2.5 hour tour of the island, and it went on for a total of 4 hours. So just be prepared. It was 2.5 hours of drive time and tour information but they stopped and let us out at several different beaches and markets to sightsee. This made the time of the total trip longer than we expected. For us it was no big deal we were only shopping afterwards, but just keep this in mind if you have a different excursion planned for after your tour. We stopped at Orient Bay, visited the French and Dutch sides, got local culture, and had a wonderful day. highly recommend.

This was the most amazing tour today. Our guide Freddy was beyond A+. He was explicit in every detail with all questions answered. He was congenial with a smile all the time. Even though, we got rained on at Mullett Bay, it was an awesome experience. We would definitely return and take this tour with Freddy again. Thank you.

I don't even know how to start! First of all, it's a family business who are deeply rooted in the island. We had to reschedule due to the weather and they were beyond accommodating. We had Danica for the day just to ourselves. We quickly felt comfortable with her and she gave us a true experience of the island. She gave us so much information and suggestions that we have an entire return trip already planned out! Oh and the rum punch made by her dad really is an experience! Don't even hesitate and just book with them!!

My husband and I are celebrating out 22nd anniversary and we decided to take a tour of the island. We did the hot spot tour with Freddie and it was the absolute best tour ever. He is very knowledgeable, kind and patient. We felt safe and comfortable with Freddie as our guide. Choosing Freddie and Jo Junie tours was the highlight of this vacation.
