We contacted John, a local tour guide, to take us on through the Millet Trail which goes through the rain forest. Since there were 8 of us in a rental vehicles, we arranged to meet him at an intersection on the main road on our way there. In deciding what time to start, John recommended that earlier is better for seeing birds. He was waiting for us on time at 8:00 am at the agreed upon intersection. There were rest rooms at the beginning of the trail and we were given walking sticks which were very useful since the majority of this trail is climbing gravel steps with roots & rocks. John was very knowledgeable about the plants and birds and a very good guide. He did point out a St. Lucian parrot, but unfortunately, it was a young one and had not yet developed the color of an adult. He told us he spent much of his childhood outside and learned about nature from his grandfather. Even though it rained during part of our hike, it didn't seem to bother anyone all that much. We enjoyed our tailgate picnic afterwards & dropped John off on our way home. I don't think I would have attempted to do this hike without a guide and John did an excellent job of leading our group, pointing out features and answering our many questions about life in St. Lucia. I would definitely take another of his tours. Paradise Excursions 758-723-2930.
