We selected this private tour, rather than a ship sponsored one, because of the price and prior positive reviews. It was well worth it AND the reviews were spot on. While the location of the meeting point is a bit difficult to find, they wait for you (assuming disembarking delays - which usually occur) and are more than helpful. David... More

We booked the SXM I tour for Feb 9, 2017. When we arrived, we were directed to a van. It was full and we were in the back row of the van. We could not see forward because of others in front of us and our view to the sides was obstructed because the windows were rounded off at the... More

This was by far the best tour out of a 2 week cruise trip, much better than any we booked on board. I agree with others who have left a review that it wasn't easy to find the meeting place where the trip started and that you need to look for a small marquee like you would have at a... More

I would highly recommend Bernards Tours if you have never seen the island of St Martin. You are taken to both the Dutch and French side of island and given an opportunity to stop, take pictures and enjoy views. there is an extended stop on the French side in the capital city. You can shop or have a quick drink... More

Great tour! Rudy Rogers was a great guide and had lots to tell about the island. Maho Beach to see the planes land was an amazing stop. There is stunning views all over the island. Our stop in Margot was great! Try the guaveberry pina coladas, they are amazing!

This tour was great! David was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and informative, while making the whole trip fun. Wow, that rum punch was good and strong too. Our stops were Orient Beach, checked out the iguanas, shopped in Marigot, dodged the airplanes at Maho beach and drove back through Simpson Bay. Our guide pulled off in many... More

DJ Dave was a brilliant tour guide and driver. Very polite and helpful, always offering to take photos, provided a very well stocked bar!!! The trip ended at the amazing maho beach watching the planes land, spectacular!! Also went to both Marigot and phillipsburg, had plenty of time everywhere. Thank you, I highly recommend this company.

Booked a few months before the cruise.The directions to locate Bernard Tours was perfect. We waited about 20 minutes before starting off.Tour included time at Orient Beach, Marigot and Maho Beach where the planes land directly overhead. Liquid refreshments were provided throughout.

This is our first experience with a private tour (vs ship tour) and unfortunately it was not good. After all the good reviews for Bernard’s we were excited to take the tour. We arrived at the meeting place – which was really hard to find, not very good directions – on time only to wait for nearly 1 hour. Finally... More
