“Rip-Roaring Fun!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Top activity of a full week's St. Croix stay? This all-day jeep tour ending with a dip in a tide pools! Guide Richie insured photos and memories galore. Each stop is historic, cultural, scenic and/or athletic. Beach picnic with rum punch as a flat tire was fixed bonded our 2-jeep group along with hanging on to maneuver steep, narrow mountain paths or serving beer to hogs. Hesitant @ first, I was "sold" on it shortly after tour began. Wear Mud-OK Garments (no white), hats, sunscreen. Overall shorts over tee/tank/swimsuit's ideal. Follow guide's tips for slippery tidal pool rocks.

“Best Way to See St. Croix!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Wow, by far the highlight of our trip! Yes, you get to go on roads and see main attractions, but also get to go off roading through the mountains and experience things not available by car. The local drivers know every inch of the island and are VERY informative guides. I learned and saw more from our guide in one day than we did the rest of the week!!
In my opinion, Tan Tan Tours is the ONLY safe way to go to the tide pools. Instead of a long, steep, unmarked hike followed by crawling over unsafe boulders to get in, you are driven right to the pools and the guide shows you where to place your hands and feet to safely climb the boulders to enter the pools.
Ask for Richie to be your Jeep driver. From our experience, he is the safest, most fun, most knowledgeable, and willing to share all he knows about his island!

“History of St Croix via 4-wheel Drive”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

You will see and learn about the 84 square miles of St Croix in 8 hours (full day tour) from a fun and experienced guide. Safety is a priority and all drivers carry a hand held radio to check in with their dispatcher at key points along the tour. Bring a camera and take lots of photos as the experience is fast paced. Stops last about 15 minutes except at the tidal pools where we spent a good 30 minutes in the water; a windy day with rough water is the best as the pools are protected from the wind and have spectacular waves bringing water falls across the tops of the rocks and into the pools. As the jeeps are open to the elements be sure to bring hats, sunscreen, and a rain jacket just in case. To learn the history of sugarcane on St Croix while actually being inside an old mill from 1810 is quite the experience.

“Great off-road sightseeing!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

This is a must do tour if you are in good shape! You see so many sights and the drivers/guides are so informative. There are some rough roads traveled and a lot of climbing in and out of the Jeep but they are patient and don't mind stopping for pictures. We had a great time on this tour and learned so much from our guides Steve and Brian!
