Well, this is VERY LONG overdue, but I simply had to get it on here. I did this tour, with Gordon, and a German couple and their young child. I thought that because so few signed up, it would be cancelled. Instead, Gordon took us in his air conditioned van to places on the island that we wanted to see, and others that he thought we might enjoy. The man knows his island! And his verbal history as we traveled was both interesting and enlightening. I captured photos unlike any of my fellow cruise mates. Gordon took us to areas that were picturesque and he will also take photos of you - quite well, in fact.
Gordon is a very down-to-earth gentleman who clearly loves what he does, and even with so few, he gave us 4 - 5 hours of what may have been the best tour / excursion of what was an 11 night cruise. From views of Eric Clapton's residence to Nelson's Dockyard, we saw it all. And 'yes' we stopped to swim, too.
Further, at one point, I swallowed some water that went down the wrong way. I started choking and could not catch my breathe. VERY EMBARRASSING, and scary. But Gordon kept his cool, and was ready to call 911, phone in hand, to a very deserted part of the island, until I stopped him and caught my breathe. I have no doubt that Gordon will NEVER forget this incident. He acted professionally and to this day I want to say, 'thank you.'
As noted, I am not aware that we missed any of the 'must see' sites, and because we enjoyed photography, he took us to others where there was literally no one but us. Gordon stopped if we needed to use the facilities and we picked up some food at the Dockyard. I do have photos, but they are on another computer :( so I don't know if I can come back and add them. They are on Facebook...I booked this tour via email from home and once there we met Gordon at 9:30am and off we went. As I recall the price was USA $40.00/person - I chose to give Gordon a sizable tip because of all of the above. In my traveling experience many would have cancelled due to 'too few' people booking with Gordon. Instead we had a truly wonderful day, and a tour and guide that I will never forget.
I want these reviews to be helpful to YOU, the readers, so I am totally honest. This is a VERY worthwhile tour. The price is more than right, you will see it all, and be very happy that you toured with Gordon. If you're not, please feel free to write and tell me why you were not...because when I return it is likely that I will be calling Gordon again for another tour....I have nothing negative to say, nor add. Check out his webpage, and his page on Facebook. And if you're going to St John's, Antigua you won't go wrong if you choose Gordon to guide you...
