Frank's Tours was amazing. We have used local tour guides and drivers at various ports around the world and Frank if by far the BEST. He is such a kind man who loves his island and will treat you to an amazing day. You won't be disappointed! If you book the all-inclusive tour that includes lunch, you get to also visit the volcano, waterfall and gardens, beach and of course his famous rum punch! He is fun, knowledgeable, easy to understand and his tours are safe and comfortable. I recommend this for all age groups.

Dropped us off and picked us up to shop in town. Comfortable, safe and informative. Gave us a tour of town and tips on local shopping.

From the moment we met Frank at the Cruise Ship Terminal we new we were in for a fun day. Frank is a real character! He is very lively and animated as he gives you the island tour. The first stop was a gorgeous view of our ship in the waters of Castries.Next we stopped by a local vendor selling fresh picked bananas. Then we began the long winding tour around, up, and through this beautiful island. Everywhere we went everyone seemed to know Frank. We quickly found out why. It seems Frank is somewhat vocal in the local politics and if you want he will be glad to have a discussion with your input of course. Regarding his driving skills, Frank is quite capable. He knows the roads well which is a good thing because there really is no straight roads but just a lot of twisty turns which make for quite an adventure. The stops at the botanical garden, volcano and sulfur springs were just what we needed to stretch, walk and view the natural beauty that is St. Lucia. Also we made a lunch stop at a local mountain top restaurant with a gorgeous view (*lunch is optional with an additional charge) which allowed us a rest stop break and time to purchase locally made souvenirs. But back to Frank---he loves to sing (quite loudly) and will gladly serenade you on your return trip. He also quite the joke teller hence the title of this review--"Tours with Character"--obviously referring to Frank! Amusing, knowledgeable, fun, safe and reasonably priced makes Frank's Tours a good choice for a nice sightseeing day.

We booked with Franks and arranged a private taxi for a group of 4 adults. Taxi driver gave us a great tour including stopping at a few trees to pick fruit/nuts for us to taste or see. We stopped at a banana plantation and he showed us how they grow. The driver began to stop at all the little roadside stands that sell junk. When we told him we did not want to stop at those, he stopped that for the remainder of the day.

Two highlights: going to the waterfall and going to the private black sand beach. The road to reach the private black sand beach is a bit sketchy and bumpy but completely worth it!

We ended with a trip to the rum factory. Great day!
