Worth a stop if part of a larger day tour
Nov 2020
The volcano is not really what you would expect. There’s really not that much to see, but seeing the water bubbling inside the crater-like openings was a little interesting. You had a choice of taking a 10 minute or so walk around with a guide that just told you a little about the volcano or participate in the mud baths. We didn’t want to get dirty, so we just took the tour. I wouldn’t go here just for this experience, but it was part of a larger day-tour that we booked that took us to many different locations. There were some local vendor booths onsite to do a bit of souvenir shopping too, which was nice since as visitors were not allowed to road around the island to go shopping due to COVID restrictions.

I thought it would be more than what it was

I'm glad I went but wouldn't do it again. We paid extra for a few minutes of talking and the get a better look at Gabriel's Hole. Not to mention a steep enough walk there and back to exhaust my mother. It was interesting but not what I expected.

Fun to experience
Mar 2020
We stopped for 30 minutes to hop in the black water and then cover ourselves in sulphur smelling mud. It was a fun first time experience. Great for photos. But not worth doing again.

Nice little tour

It's a short 10 to 15 minutes tour. Anyone who has seen Rotorua or Taupo in NZ will find this quite basic. The lady who took the two of us around was very good.

A One Time Must Do
Feb 2020 • Couples
We did this as part of a cruise excursion so it was very rushed but still very enjoyable. We knew that we would only had 30 minutes at the pools thanks to other reviews. The smell is as bad as all the other reviews say. It was very nauseating for about five minutes but became more tolerable once we got to the pools. My girlfriend and I rubbed the cold clay on each other than hopped in the 100 degree farenheit (they claimed) pool and soaked for 10 relaxing minutes. I do not know if I would this a second time but I would redo this excursion again if given the chance.

Smelly but interesting

So the smell will “welcome” you but the history makes it worth the stop. The guide we had was very informative and it was really spectacular to see the volcano pools bubbling

Up Close and Personal with a Volcano
Feb 2020
The Tour of the "Drive in Volcano" is a MUST for every visitor to St. Lucia. The caldera is steaming away right before your very eyes. The tour guide will give you all kinds of information about the volcano. There are many opportunities to take very interesting photos.

Cool to see and smell - Once!
Feb 2020
If you go to this volcano in Soufriere expecting to see larva flows you are going to be greatly disappointed...even though this is a live volcano it only has hot springs and bubbling mud pools (of which you can no longer get close to as you could 30 years ago) now you are taken on a guided tour and given a brief history of the volcano. It is worth visiting once and would recommend trying the mud and mineral baths which is located near the entrance of the park.

One of a kind experience
Feb 2020
Definitely get a tour and see (and smell) this volcano. I rapidly realized it is typical in St. Lucia for the guides to be experienced locals who are passionate about their land as well as what they do. It's a fairly easy climb and it is like no other place in the world. Inexpensive also.
