“ATV Great... Beach not so much!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We paid for the ATV and Beach Excursion. We do a lot of ATVing. We own our own and try to do it on every vacation as well. They were very easy to spot at the port when we got off the ship. Our ATV guides were awesome and we really enjoyed spending the morning with them. It was a quality ride on a beautiful island but based upon my experience a bit pricey for the amount of time you spend on the ATV. As for the beach portion, we were extremely disappointed. Knowing that we had choices of which beach to chose, we talked to the driver and requested a beach where we could get chairs, shade and food. He assured us that he would take us to a great beach that had those amenities. Instead we were abandoned at an extremely overcrowded beach where there were no chairs or shade to be found not occupied. We watched as competition for chairs and shade was resulting in arguments on the beach. We tried to get food but were told "we didn't have a reservation" and would have to wait about an hour to see if they could get us in. After an hour of standing in the baking sun with no place to sit in the shade or food, we opted to forgo our beach portion of our excursion, paid for a taxi (even though return transport was included in the ATV price) and returned to the ship. We feel that we wasted precious vacation time during the beach portion of this excursion.

“Great tour with Spectrum”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My family and I took the tour with Spectrum, we booked through the Marriott as Spectrum doesn't accept credit cards directly and we wanted to save our liquid cash.

We were picked up and taken to another part of the island about 15 minutes away, at first you will think what the heck is this, as to get there you go through some less than desirable areas of the island which we found out later is still nothing to be worried about.

We were greeted by Ivan who was one of the best guides we have experienced, Spectrum allowed my kids who are under 12 ride on the back or front with an adult. We are experienced riders so all was fine for us. Ivan gave us a quick demo of the bikes did a quick couple of laps around the area and we were off on the tour. He lives right down the road so he knows the area like the back of his hand.

We stopped at Romney manor where we were shown local crafts, it was a nice location and a no pressure sales shop, we didn't buy anything there but they did have some nice stuff. From there we went through some rainforest trails and he explained some of the trees and the area. We ended up in a field area at a partially built house and Ivan explained some of the history behind it. He showed us a mango tree and then he jumped into it and tossed down several fruits which were great! We drove around more and he took several pics with our camera for us. We stopped again at the sugar cane field, Ivan cut a few pieces for the kids and us. It was a really great tour with a really great guide that catered to my family and especially my kids. We all thought it was a great tour.

I also want to note they were quick with responding to email prior to our trip and were the only ATV company that would accommodate us with our kids too !

“Best ATV Experience We've Had”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We arrived off of a cruise ship for a mid day tour in January, we were the only two on the tour so we got a very personal touch. Ivan was a great guide, the terrain was great for quad bikes and the surroundings were amazing. We sampled some sugar cane, fruit and Ivan climbed a palm tree and cut down some coconuts. His climbing the tree is something that has to be seen to be believed. We would definitely do this again without hesitation.

“Great Time”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We really had a great time on this adventure. It rained during our tour so we all got good and muddy!!! I would advise this is probably a tour best suited for perople who have some previous four wheeler experience.
The shuttle was on-time and right at the location they said they would be. The views from the plantation were amazing and the guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
