After reading the reviews about Janus and team I knew we needed to book this company and we were not disappointed.
We used them for arrival and departure from the airport and the Island Expo. Our driver on arrival was Shane who is a brilliant host. Very informed about the island and is clearly driven by providing an excellent service. He also takes a great deal of care and pride in his Lexus which was very comfortable. Refreshments along the route were a nice touch and a couple of stops for picture opportunities. So good was the journey we asked to have Shane for the Island Expo and once again he didn't fail to deliver.
What was so great about this tour was that it felt very bespoke to us. Shane stopped off at fruit vendors on the road so we could see and taste a fresh coconut. The process of watching a guy chop it with a machete was enlightening. We saw all of the major sites listed on the website, the highlight being the volcano and mud bath. Note- if you can, try to visit this (and most things) when there is no cruise docking in St Lucia. We had no queues and few people around which was nice. The extra touches with Real Tours was that Shane was on hand to take some photos of us together and was never rushing us on to the next activity. A quick freshen up at the waterfall (another high light) and then on for some lunch at a local restaurant followed by the drive back.
All in all an excellent company who have clearly thought about their customers.
Thanks to you all, just gutted we missed Shane on our way back to the airport :-(

Excellent professional service. All arrangements made online. Very reliable and trustworthy. Service contacted me 24 hours before my arrival to St. Lucia, and 24 hours prior to my departure from St. Lucia. The driver was very professional.

My wife and I visited St Lucia in August and booked Real St Lucia's Island Expo tour. Rather than being put into a bus with 20 other tourists and having to keep to a schedule, Real St. Lucia picked us up in a private luxury car, with some drinks to enjoy along the way, and let us customize our own tour to hit the sites we really wanted to see, skip the ones we didn't, and stay as long at each one as we wanted. Our driver, Shane, was friendly, cheerful, patient and told us all about all of our tour stops. We visited Marigot Bay, a banana plantation, Anse la Laye, Canaries, Soufriere, the Volcano, Sugar Beach (best beach I've ever been too.... stunning. Snorkeling was amazing there too), Toriaille Waterfall and a restaurant for lunch. Real St Lucia was less expensive than the other tours we found and scheduled it for whenever we wanted. Highly recommended, we'll use them again if we ever come back!!

We booked St. Lucia Airport Shuttle to take us to and from The BodyHoliday on August 6 and 12th. This company provides excellent prompt service. They are very caring and reliable. Whenever I emailed Janus with a reservation request or a question, my email was answered within minutes. The cars are newer and comfortable. We were provided with a bottled water and a Piton Beer as we made our way to our resort. Our driver Huan was very friendly and answered all our questions about St. Lucia. We stopped along the way to take a scenic picture in Dennery and to eat some local bread at a bakery. (The bread was soooo good!!!) I really liked that Huan told us about the local bakery and let us stop and try it, as we love to try local foods, as well as being immersed in the local culture. We loved Huan so much that we requested to have him take us back to the airport on the 12th.

The prices are competitive. The company is friendly and extremely reliable. The next time that I visit St. Lucia, I will use this company. Highly recommended!!

St Lucia Airport Shuttle are more than just a shuttle - they were to us a private taxi company, who were outstanding in terms of their communication, their vehicles and their drivers.

All e-mails were answered promptly and once confirmed, we subsequently received a further e-mail 24 hours before each of the three journey's that we made between our villa in Marigot Bay and the International Airport.

Each of the drivers were extremely smartly dressed and happy to share their passion about the island of St Lucia and all of the vehicles were clean and with air conditioning.

A great company that we would thoroughly recommend.
