We travelled to St Lucia in February as part of a cruise around the Caribbean. We were meeting some family staying in St Lucia so we decided to book with Solomans and take a trip down to Soufriere seeing as we only had 8 or so hours off the ship and I wanted some quality time with my family rather than the winding from North to South.

I've done a fair bit of travelling and I can honestly say the experience and service from Richard, the taxi guy (also part of Solomans) and his first mate were among the best I've experienced. I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do, Tet Paul lookout (By the way Fabulus the tour guide there is another one for praise), Ladera for lunch and back but I hadn't sorted out transport and was winging it. Not a problem, with one call Richard arranged transport for us.

The taxi driver was just as good. He asked where we wanted to go and realising that we had a bit more time than anticipated also took us to two other places as part of the agreed price at the start. The views of the Pitons from Tet Paul, Ladera and the Hotel Chocolate bar right opposite were amazing and we left Soufriere with already a day to remember.

Back on the boat and Richard and his first mate took care of us again zig zagging back up the coast and giving us a tour of the different local places. With a couple of beers, music playing and at full speed the first mate somehow spotted some money fly out of the boat - already 100-200m on we turned back and I will never know how the first mate managed to find it. To be fair they didn't have to go back to help find it but I tell this story because it pretty much summed up the kind of people these two were, genuinely good guys hoping for their passengers to have the best time and judging by the comments they do it day in day out.

Got back on the cruise with plenty of time to spare. This was unlike any of the other excursions we'd been on on our cruise and would recommend all of our stops in St Lucia to anyone travelling there. We spoke to a few of the other people we'd met on the cruise and they said they got a bus down and it didn't give them enough time to see the things they wanted to in Soufriere.

Coronavirus has especially impacted the Caribbean because of the reliance of tourism and I really hope that these guys are still running when things get back to being better as the service was 5 stars!!

We arranged a private full day tour of St. Lucia with Solomon’s Water Taxi & Tours. The day was perfect in every way. For a very reasonable price, 4 of us were picked up at the port in the morning and ferried by water taxi to Soufriere, on the other side of the island. The water taxi ride was definitely exhilarating and wet. It started to rain on our way out, and we did get pretty drenched, but since it was a nice warm day, it was not a problem. Along the way, our tour guide pointed out sites on the shore and talked about the country. Once on land, we were met by our driver, who took us to the Tet Paul Nature Reserve, where we went on a guided hike.
The views were stunning, and we learned a lot about the plants along the way. From there, we headed to the Diamond Falls Botanical Garden. The gardens were lovely and the waterfall well worth the trip. Having enjoyed the guided tour at Tet Paul (included in the price of admission), we could have skipped the “guide” we hired for the Diamond Falls. A delicious traditional Caribbean lunch followed at the restaurant owned by Solomon’s mother, who came out to greet us at the end of the meal. The food was plentiful and delicious. After lunch, we headed back to the water taxi for a trip to Sugar Beach and Asne Chastenet for snorkeling. Both sites were wonderful, but I would rate Asne Chastenet #1. We wish we had had more time (which our guides were happy to provide), but we wanted to get back to our ship with plenty of time to spare. Richard (the Captain of the boat), Titus, our tour guide on the boat, and Iber, our driver were all terrific. We felt very well taken care of, and they gave us everything we asked for and more. St. Lucia was our favorite island on our Caribbean cruise, no doubt at least partly due to the wonderful tour provided by Solomon’s Water Taxis and Tour.

Solomon provided an excellent day of sight-seeing and activities. We stayed at Sugar Beach Resort and had a private water taxi take us in to Soufriere where we then went to Sulpher baths and the Sapphire Falls and Jungle Spa. We were taken back into Soufriere where we had a delcious lunch and then back on the water taxi for drinks, snorkeling and spectacular views of the Pitons. All of these excursions were packed into a 4 hour trip and reasonably priced compared to the total cost of completing the same excursions through the resort. My wife and I had a fantastic time and all tour guides were extremely kind. We definitely recommend including this in your trip itinerary for anyone staying at Sugar Beach Resort.

We met Justice (Solomon) while walking along Sugar Beach. We had an open itinerary and wanted to see sights experience the cultures around Soufriere. Justice delivered! We met at the Sugar Beach dock the next day for what turned out to be a private tour comprised of a water taxi ride to Soufriere, a taxi ride then private guided tour of Sulfur Springs, taxi ride to Toraille Waterfall, wonderful lunch at Stoneyard Restaurant, back to the Soufraire dock and on to Bat Cave, then finally snorkeling in the marine reserve before returning to Sugar Beach. 3 1/4 hours of great Saint Lucia memories!

My wife and I had an unbelievable time on our tour of the island from the water. We were taken to two different snorkeling spots where the water was so clear and there was great underwater life. The view from the boat is spectacular and we were the only ones on the boat. Richard the party guy was a great tour guide and we even got complimentary Piton beer and rum. Would highly recommend a snorkeling excursion to anyone going to St. Lucia and Solomon Tours are the best!

This was one of the most pleasant four hours we’ve spent in a long time. We took Solomon’s half-day tour from Sugar Beach north to the Jade Mountain area for snorkeling in a wonderful location. Our boat captain was Richard and he was assisted by Clyde. The trip was done at a slow, steady pace along the shoreline, with lots of knowledgeable commentary about Sant Lucia and its southeast portion along the way. The snorkeling at the Sugar Beach resort is wonderful but at the area west of the beach at Jade Mountain, our destination for this trip, it was even better in a number of ways. The water was clearer and we saw several species of both fish and coral that we didn’t see at the resort to the south.

I must emphasize that, for a couple in their mid 70’s, there was never once a moment when we felt the tiniest bit unsafe. Before we started this excursion, we had some concern that my wife, with her artificial knee, would be unable to enter or exit the boat. No worries! Richard and Clyde were eager to help her and obviously had dealt with such situations before. If you read this, men, again, many thanks!

Finally, a word about Solomon and his business. In the dozen or so years he’s been building his business, he’s apparently done a really terrific job. He and his employees deliver real value to their customers and it’s done in a good, clean way that inspires trust in everyone concerned. He has created a lot of jobs for people here in this island and that’s because his customers get what they hope and expect to get.

We really enjoyed our tour with Solomon. They are a family operated business and it was so nice to see how well they work together. Cylve and Marlon were out tour guides and they did an excellent job in showing us the island and giving its history. We then visited Solomon’s mother’s restaurant for a local lunch and it was exactly what we wanted- authentic, local food. I highly recommend booking a trip with Soloman tours!

My sister and I got back early from climbing Gros Piton and we had the afternoon to do something. Even though tours are supposed to be booked 24 hours in advance we booked only two hours early and had an amazing afternoon cruising along the coast on the base of the Pitons. The great guides pointed out famous beaches and resorts. We stopped to snorkel at marine preserves at Anse Chastanet and Sugar beach, some of the most beautiful and pristine reefs on the island. To complete the experience we got complimentary rum punch. I highly recommend!

I can't speak highly enough of Solomon tours. We had initially used them in 2015 and rebooked with them again this year when we stopped for a day on our cruise.

From the minute we emailed to get a quote and all the way until dropoff, Solomon, his wife Marla and all this employees were extremely professional and friendly.

We visited Sugar Beach (between the Pitons) and had a wonderful beach day that included snorkeling, drinks and an amazing home cooked lunch by Solomon's mother. It was absolutely delicious.

We then got an amazing boat tour with Solomon and Liam with all the history of St. Lucia including stops at Marigot Bay and the famous rock from Pirates of the Caribbean! Our day with them went above and beyond our expectations. The prices were extremely reasonable and they trusted us enough to pay the day of.

If you're looking for an excursion, hands down book with these guys over anything the cruise is offering.

Thank you for making our vacation memorable!

We used Solomon Water Taxi for a snorkeling trip and loved it! Our captain, Party Richard, was a lot of fun and was happy to share his knowledge about the island. He made sure we knew to follow basic safety procedures (don’t touch anything while snorkeling - they have fire coral) and let us know he would be happy to do what he could to make sure we had a great time. He took some nice photos of my husband and I, and he provided complimentary beer and rum punch after the snorkel. He was awesome, and we highly recommend booking him for a tour!
