My wife and I came to St. Lucia in April'12 to celebrate our honeymoon after months of stressful wedding preparations. We stayed at a beautiful boutique hotel in Cap Maison that offered a tour of the Pitons, Tropical Rainforest, Walk-thru Volcanoes and Natural Hot Springs thru treasure tours via catamaran.
With a six month pregnant that insisted on getting a taste of adventure despite doctors orders to stay off of her feet, I was very apprehensive on doing anything remotely taxing that would jeopardize the health of my wife. But, with Chakra as our tour guide through the breathe-taking beauty of Southern St. Lucia my fears became an afterthought. She was a delightful, accomodating, and VERY informative tour guide that provided us with the experience of a lifetime that created wonderful moments in our time at St. Lucia that I still reflect upon today.
When our catamaran arrived at Soufriere, Chakra made sure we were the first people off of the boat. At the walk-in volcano, she secured a private tour with the park guide so that we could move at our own pace and ask as many questions as we wanted without interruption from other tourists. When the rain unexpectedly started to fall, she was right at our side with an umbrella to lend us to make sure we didn't get wet. Chakra showed us all the 'hot spots' to pick up the best mud in the mud baths AND again provided us our own alone time while there so my wife & I could enjoy the moment and newlyweds. During our time at the botanical gardens, she shared with us facts/details on EVERY flower in the island; it was like having our on talking encyclopedia!!! On our way back to the catamaran, she took us to secret spots that were PERFECT places for amazing pics that we now have as part of our wedding photo album today. Did I mention that was a great photographer too? For our last stop of the trip, she scheduled a lunch at a local restaurant the islanders eat at and called in advance to make sure our food was fresh/ready when we arrived. By the end of the trip, I felt as if we had been friends for years.
For anyone that plans on visiting St. Lucia, I highly recommend Treasure Tours (Chakra especially). It's well worth the money for the quality of service & experience provided!
