“VIP excursion organized by Joyce on St. Maarten”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I contacted Joyce since I was in need for a local tour guide, who could help me organize a special VIP island excursion on St, Maarten for a group of 46 VIP guest we had on board Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Sea. It became an unforgettable day, and Joyce delivered above our expectations. She found a private villa right on the ocean with spectacular views and a pool, where our group was served a Caribbean lunch, all catered by Sandy's Restaurant, who's staff was professional, extremely accommodating, and made us all feel very special. The food and atmosphere could simply not be any better. Joyce showed us both sides of the island and told us very interesting facts of the island and gave us many good shopping tips. Every one in our group loved this special excursion organized by Joyce, and she really made every one in our group feel very special. I simply just asked Joyce for giving us an unforgettable day on St. Maarten, and she certainly delivered. My best recommendations to anyone, who wants to experience St. Maarten in a special, interesting and fun way. Lots of thanks from Lars Sundberg, tour organizer for Cookie Lee Inc. Dream Get Away Trip 2013.

“THE BEST day of the trip!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We had Joyce as a tour guide for our day in St. Maarten. We had 19 family members including 9 kids. Joyce was FANTASTIC! She was so knowledgeable and she made the tour perfect for our group. She encouraged questions and especially questions from the kids. She was so patient with the younger children and their funny questions. Whenever we showed an interest in seeing something she was happy to take us there. Some of our family members were worried that a day in a bus wouldn't be very enjoyable with 9 kids, but Joyce made it a wonderful day and everyone was thrilled with our tour. KUDOS to Joyce and our driver Vince.

“Joyce is an amazing guide!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We (4 adults, 12 yr old, 11 yr old, 8 yr old) booked Joyce for a tour of St. Martin. She was an outstanding guide. The entire time she talked with us about the island and it's history. She is incredible with kids and adults. She took us to a great souvenir store with the lowest prices on the island. Great opportunity to stock up on St. Martin merchandise. Then Maho beach where planes landed just feet from the beach. Great stops for pictures. A visit to an outstanding outside market on the French side of the island with a great pastry shop. Then visited Orient Beach which was beautiful. Joyce can tailor her tour to whatever you are interested in. I can reccommend her for whatever land based tour you are interested in. There is no one better to take you around the island. Her personality is just incredible.

“A Fun Day in Paradise With Joyce”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We recently cruised with our lifelong friends on Celebrity Silhouette. They had met Joyce 7 years earlier on their first cruise to St-Martin and booked her for this time as well. What a wonderful day we had with her. She showed us all of the interesting sights on the island, took us to a beach front restaurant as we requested, showed us where all the best shopping was and made the day a day to remember. My husband and I live in Florida and have been to the Caribbean many times, but this day will always have fond memeories for us. Due to Joyce's enthusiasm and love for her home, we saw the island through her eyes...and it was a delightful experience..

“Best way to see the entire island”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Joyce Prince is an absolute delight! She can tailor your day tour to anything you'd like. If you don't know what you want - as in our case - she'll put together an enjoyable day for you.

Joyce knows everybody on the island and she can make any arrangements you want/need. Her easy going nature allows for flexibility you don't often enjoy on other tours. There is no better way to spend a day on St Maarten.

And most importantly -- her rum punch rocks!
