    Brilliant Island Tour and Stingray City Experience
    We had great fun on a half day tour around the island, taking in Devil's Bridge, Stingray City and Betty's Hope Plantation. We were picked up from Jolly Beach and then headed to St. John's, where the tour started. Our guide was really knowledgeable, and gave us a load of info not just about the sights on Antigua but also the flora and fauna. We had plenty of time for photos at Devil's Bridge, and enjoyed lunch at the plantation (where we also had the chance to read about the history), but the highlight of the trip was going to Stingray City. To have the chance to stand in the sea whilst these enormous creatures swim around and underneath you was magical - definitely a bucket list moment! It was also a great place to snorkel around - plenty of coral, fish, lobsters etc to see. We would highly recommend this tour as a great way to see the island and to experience Stingray City

    An interesting tour
    If you want to learn about the history, geography and culture of Antigua, then this tour is for you. We had the pleasure of being lead around the entire island by Giles who supplied us with interesting information and rum punch. Giles is a wonderful guide, always making sure our needs were being met. As we were driving along, he would stop and talk about various plants, buildings, historic sites and other miscellaneous things. What was advertised to be a 6 hour excursion lasted over 8 1/2 and it didn't even seem that long due to Giles engaging style and his obvious pride of his country. I strongly recommend this tour.

    Les was Great!
    Our driver and tour guide Les was truly a delight! He not only kept us entertained (and it wasn’t over the top talking for the sake of talking) but also provided historical information about Antigua and Barbuda. He drove great, lunch was delicious, and he prepared us for what to expect at the Swim with the Sting Ray attraction. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Great tour of the island
    Had a great day with Kamesha touring Antigua! She was amazing and definitely made the day memorable. We visited the highlights of the island (Shirley's heights, nelson's dockyard, devil's bridge) and had a quick stop at the beach just before lunch at Betty's Hope. I was expecting the "off-road" part to be a bit more rough though. It was essentially dirt streets, but nonetheless a great experience.

Booked the above personal tour of the island and boy did we see the sights with our amazing tour guide and driver Thierry. From Devils Bridge to English Harbour and the amazing beaches on the tropical side island. We had a lovely lunch at the Roadhouse and as it was my birthday the lovely staff brought out a slice of cake with a candle in singing Happy Birthday. We stopped at Clemies a fresh fruit stall and had a tasty selection of tropical fruit to enjoy. Thierry was a great guide telling us about the places we visited aswell as sharing what day to day life for Antiguans is like so really got to experience for a brief time island life.

We did the Island Safari Gold private SUV tour and had an amazing time. Our tournament guide was Bruce and he made the day perfect. He answered all our questions about the island, took us to all the great spots and gave us tips and time to enjoy each one. We had an incredible time

We did an island safari gold tour today with Shouwyn Francis *Flava* and it was amazing. He was very friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. It was an awesome day that gave us a little taste of Antigua. We would highly recommend this tour, especially if Flava is your guide.

We took this trip on Friday . We went from St. John’s out along all the beautiful beaches . The boat wasn’t too big or too small . The crew was very friendly . We stopped at Cade’s reef to snorkel . I told them I had size 15 feet . The crew member handed me size 11 flippers . He said those were the biggest they had . He also handed me a life vest which he said was mandatory to get in the water . One of the other passengers refused to wear one and stayed on the boat . I got in the water . The mask they gave me leaked constantly . The life vest stopped me from snorkeling normally . My feet hurt from the pain of the crazy tight flippers . The reef had absolutely nothing to look at . It looked stripped and baron . The rest of the trip was fine . The beach we stopped at was beautiful . The lunch on the boat was very good . Overall it was a great trip except for the awful snorkeling . Maybe next time we’ll just do the boat trip .

My husband and I hadn't been to Antigua before and wanted a good overview of the island. We were not disappointed! Our driver-guide, Kenrick, was a superb ambassador for his island. Knowledgeable, articulate and very funny, his favourite expression as we bounced along was "nice and easy" - all ten passengers in the safari vehicle had a great time. We travelled along roadways and off-road over hill and dale, to Nelson's Dockyard and Shirley's Heights for views of the British colonial defense infrastructure (and Eric Clapton's mansion!), ending up at Turner Beach, a lovely expanse of white sand and crystal clear water, for a local chicken and rice lunch - and some Antiguan beer (lunch included in the fee for the excursion). Excellent way to spend five hours. If you book, ask for Kenrick because he's a terrific guide. One small caution, it's sometimes a bumpy ride, so not suitable for bad backs.

My husband and I did this tour on our recent cruise stop in Antigua. Our tour guide was crazy fun!! We had a great time on the trip, saw many sites on the Island and learned a lot along the way. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Antigua.
