“Personal tour”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We wanted to visit Antigua and have a personal tour without it being a touristic excursion, It was very personalized as we were two couples. I would like to thank Elmo for his excellent tour and knowledge of the island. Visited Devil's Bridge, Sheryl Heights, The Dockyards, Betty's Hope Plantation to name a few. He brings you to a local restaurant for lunch.

Elmo is a gem and I strongly suggest his excursion for a very relaxed and agreable day.

“Fantasic Tour with Elmo”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I corresponded with Elmo prior to our arrival by cruise ship. We were met at the port on November 10, 2012 by Elmo to begin our wonderful tour of his island. Elmo was personable and loves this island. He is a wonderful guide and took us to interesting places. He must know the ship tour schedules because we were at the sites when the crowds were thin. We stayed at the sites as long as we wanted. We had lunch at a very clean local establishment. We had a choice of fish or chicken fixed in a variety of ways. The food was delicious! I came away from the tour knowing so much about the people, the culture and the island. Thank you Elmo for a wonderful day!

“Elmo is awesome!!!!!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Elmo met us at the cruise ship terminal where we were on our way to a fantastic tour of the island! Elmo truly loves the island and knows the history . We toured 5 areas as indicated on the tour information sheet. Much to our delight was getting to taste some Caribbean food. Elmo ... We can't thank you enough for the great tour!

“Misleading”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Because of medical issues, we informed Elmo and Brenda in our first email with them that we wanted to book a completely private tour. We received confirmation from Elmo that he would arrange a private tour for two of us with minimal activity. Imagine our surprise when we arrive to find another couple booked for our private tour. When asked what happened to our private tour, we were informed that the cost would increase by another $50 per person to arrange a private tour. Scam? I don't know, but even with copies of our private tour confirmation, the agreement was not honored. We walked away (I'm sure they weren't expecting that) and went and rented a car. Drove the entire island, had a great time, and spent less than half the original quoted price.

Won't suggest -- or use -- this company for our next visit.

“Outstanding tour with Elmo”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We enjoyed a wonderful day with Elmo. Elmo met us at the port and we were off and on our way in minutes. Elmo is one of the most relaxed guides we've ever had. He truly loves his island and it was wonderful to learn about it from him. The stops he chose were interesting and varied, not just the typical tourist stuff. The Cricket stadium was unusual and very interesting, with both it's history and the fact that we'd never seen one before. Betty's hope was both beautiful and thought provoking. Elmo is correct that sites such as these should be preserved for future generations to learn and benefit from.

We especially enjoyed visiting the Devils Bridge. There were very few people there and it was almost as if we had it to ourselves. The water crashing in, under, and over the bridge was mesmerizing. Walking around the varied terrain in the surrounding area was lots of fun.

Meandering around the country, we made stops at several scenic vistas, including one overlooking the peninsula where Eric Clapton lives. Stunning in every direction we looked. We made as stop at Nelson's Dockyard which has been restored by the English. It was interesting and we enjoyed the museum, but we preferred the more rustic sights.

Lunch was at a roadside place we had all to our selves. We enjoyed chicken, fish, and I got a whole fish. Yummy! It was across from another lovely beach with great views.

I travel a lot, I've been on many tours, and Elmo is one of the best. I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Elmo, now it's your turn.......
