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.

Had read the previous reviews of the Jeep safari gold round island tour so perhaps was expecting too much. Started well at 9am when we and another couple were picked up by Lloyd in an older SUV. The sights and sites were all great, banter with Lloyd was great. Lunch and first beverage stop though was at 2:30 for an hour and we arrived back at the hotel at 4. Started well but seemed to lose interest by the end of the tour. Good tour, but not really worth the high cost

We had a brilliant time in the 10 seater open Land Rover especially as we were the only 2 on it. Travis was polite helpful funny and went out of his way to make it a great day out. A great knowledge of history and the island and interesting sights and points of interest on the tour. Travis went out of his way to ensure we saw all the things we wanted to and the lunch at Turners beach made us feel we were in a Bond film. A really nice touch for which I'm eternally grateful in that he took us to the cricket ground to nip inside and get some pictures and also visit the sugar mill,and plantation. Travis couldn't have done anymore and he would score 20 out of 10 for me. A day we'll always remember.

Good Day Vicky, Thanks for writing us this great review we do appreciate your comments. We are glad to hear that our tour guide/driver Travis took good care of you guys especially since it was just you two. Yes, Turners beach is a wonderful beach, it is great to hear that you thought it deserved to be in a Bond Film. Thanks for mentioning that we do highlight all the major points of interest in Antigua while exploring. Please visit us again soon and tell friends about our beautiful island.

We loved the Island Safari Tour. Our guide was Kendrick, he was funny and knowledgeable, stopped a lot to point out different things, and went out of his way for us.
We had another tour booked but cancelled it so we could go with Kendrick again. His saying of the day, nice and easy! and am I talking too much!
I loved Antigua and found all of the people very friendly. We would definitely go back.

While there for our wedding/honeymoon, my husband and I did this tour which covered devils bridge, bettys hope, and stingray city! Our your guide, Davy was very informative and funny! He made the trip wonderful, we are actually still in contact with him after arriving back in the US bc we became such good friends with him! The tour was great, we saw and learned so much about the beautiful island. The jeep was so perfect for the tour...make sure you wear your seatbelts bc it does get bumpy! We were flying up out of our seats, very fun! Warning: the Rum punch is very strong! My only complaint is the lunch kind of grossed me out, we ate at bettys hope, it smelt like goats, so many bugs, and they served the food out of tupperwear containers. My husband and I only ate the salad. Otherwise we will definitely do the trip again!
