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!!

Solomon and his team made sure that we had a great week in Sugar Beach Bay . Some of us stayed on a boat and others at a nearby hotel so we needed help to get between the locations. Solomon was brilliant, organised, helpful and a great communicator - we loved the water taxi rides and car journeys. We also did a tour and felt we learnt a lot and got a feel for the real St Lucia. We stopped for a meal with Solomon’s mum and when we asked for ‘Gluten Free Vegetarian - she said ‘No Problem’ - fantastic. It has been an absolute pleasure to spend time and work with Solomon and his family -they ensured our family had a great holiday and we are sad to say goodbye - we highly recommend Solomon’s Tours.

Highlights-> accommodating, amazing crew, great food, beautiful views, pleasurable experience, would highly recommend We were staying in Gros Islet near Rodney Bay and decided we wanted to see more of the South side of the island (around Soufriere). After doing a bit of research, I came across Solomon's Water Taxi and Tours Land and Sea Excursion. I gave Soloman a call and we were lucky enough to set up a private tour for our group of six (ages ranging from 20s to 70s) on the following day for a very affordable price! Soloman worked with me to determine our pick up/drop off location at Rodney Bay Marina and was flexible about what time we wanted to meet his crew (Richard and Clyde.. both wonderful and deserve 6 stars). We ended up grabbing breakfast at the Marina and Richard found us at our agreed time. The first bit of our tour was a ride on the twin-engine speed boat down the coast to Soufriere. The ride was fun for all of us and Richard took time to point out notable resorts and stop to tell us about the many coastal towns and beaches along the way. Once we arrived in Soufriere, Clyde took us to meet our driver Iban who drove us to the sulphur springs/mud bath and waterfall. Iban was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the town. He gave us time to shop with local vendors and took many pictures of our group! After rinsing off in the waterfall, Iban took us to Soloman's mom's for lunch. The food was amazing and the ambiance was perfect. We were not rushed to eat and when we felt we were ready to continue, his mom gave Richard a call. We made our way back to the boat and Richard took us to Sugar Beach where we met Soloman-- he had chairs saved for us and a bottle of champagne waiting. Half of us snorkeled at the Marine Reserved and the other half relaxed at the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view of Gros Piton. Once we were good to go, Richard and Clyde took us back out to the end of Soufriere Bay where they took group pictures of us with the Pitons in the background. Our last stop was at Anse Chasenet where all six of us enjoyed St. Lucia's best snorkeling. Our ride back to Rodney Bay included more fun facts from Richard about the coastline and a water tour of Marigot Bay. We finished where we started at Rodney Bay which ended this roughly 7 hour tour. All six of us absolutely LOVED this tour and would recommend it to all!
