We booked the beach and shopping tour based on recommendations from this site. We were really looking forward to visiting the iguana farm and seeing more of the island than our last visit. Our tour guide (DJ) met us at the pier and we were off. The first thing he said was that we were going in the opposite direction... More

We were a group of 6 adults in St Maarten for a day on a cruise ship. We booked a sight seeing tour "SXM Island Tour I" with Bernards Tours. Our tour guide was Juliette. We had a great day. Juliette was fun, informative, and just a pleasure to spend the day with. We stopped for many photos along the... More

Daniel met us at the dock and took us for an excellent tour of St. Martin. He took us to the places we wanted to go and he got us back to the ship in plenty of time. The price was reasonable and much better than the ship tours.

This tour was awesome! We were fortunate enough to have the Mailman as our tour guide, and he was great! The island tour took us to both the Dutch and French sides of the island, including Orient Beach, and the Airport Beach. The homemade rum punch was the best I had on our cruise! This was our favourite tour during... More

The Mailman was our tour guide and he was great. I appreciated the tour having water, beer and rum punch to get our tour started. I learned so many different things about the island that I would have never known. Orient beach was awesome, but beware, nudity is optional (hence why the rum punch was necessary). The only thing that... More

When our cruise ship arrived in St. Maarten, my wife and I were met by Gerard, who greeted us with a friendly smile. Gerard was the perfect tour guide. He took us around the island to visit both the Dutch and French sides, stopping at scenic overlooks and historic locations for pictures. He even honored our photo requests along the... More

What a day on St Maarten! If you want to see the beauty and culture of the Island then you need to book Bernard's Taxi and Private Tours! In doing so ask for Jackson as your guide. Also recommend that you select a private tour VS a package tour. 8 of us planned a private tour and Jackson takes you... More

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
