  • Round-trip transportation from your St. Thomas cruise ship terminal!
  • Fun open-air sightseeing transportation!
  • English-speaking certified guides!

Your meeting point is just a 1-2 minute walk from your cruise ship's pier in St. Thomas, where your guides will be waiting to get you checked in and start the tropical island music on your fun open-air sightseeing transportation. Your sightseeing guide will be giving you lots of island info, stories, and history about St. Thomas and the capital city, Charlotte Amalie.

Learn that Columbus landed on the island in the 1400s. The island was first named Taphus (Beer Houses) and founded in 1666. The island's history is thick with pirate lore. The island is now part of the U.S. Virgin Islands and has a population of approximately 20,000.

As you travel the island, you will see numerous examples of Danish colonial architecture. Your St. Thomas excursion guide will be pointing out all of the important highlights. Your fun transportation will take you to the highest point on the island, Mountain Top, at 1,547ft above sea level. There will be stops along the route for photo opportunities.

Looking out at Mountain Top, you can see Magen's Bay Beach stretched out below. Rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world, the view is fantastic.

The sightseeing portion of your Saint Thomas shore excursion is approximately 2 hours, then you will be off to the beach. You will be stopping at Magen's Bay to enjoy your beach break time. There will be about 2 hours at the beach to relax, swim, stroll, rent a jet ski, or parasail, or just enjoy your vacation. You can secure your belongings in the van while you enjoy the beach. There wll be several beach restaurants and bars to purchase food and beverages.

On the way back to the meeting point and your cruise ship terminal in Saint Thomas, you will loop around to the East End of the island to Red Hook Ferry and 2 of the marinas where you will get a glimpse of the local life. The approximate duration is 4 hours.

Not what I was hoping for
     2/5  (Visited on February 2023)
I’ve been to St Thomas many times and I had hoped to bring my kids on this tour to see historical sights and a beach, but this tour is not that. We stopped to shop downtown first for an hour and a half, and then the next stop was also a touristy store, and the mountain top was a touristy store. The views were beautiful and we got great photos The part of Megan’s Bay we went to was very crowded and dirty, nothing like I remember. I honestly was so disappointed and wish we had just paid a taxi to take us to Coki Beach or something. Definately not worth what we paid. The driver was very nice, but the taxi ride was rough and the people on our tour were smashed drunk and talking so loud that we couldn’t hear anything he was trying to share with us. I’d pass on this tour for sure.

Great excursion and very affordable!
     5/5  (Visited on March 2020)
My 2 kids (11, 12), husband and I went on this excursion while visiting the island on a cruise. The driver waited right outside our ship and escorted us to the bus. He was very friendly and communicated all the details very clearly. We shopped first and visited a few key sites around the island. My favorite was the highest point on the island. The view was incredible! We then went to Magen's Bay and had some beach time. We very much enjoyed our time and, Elvis the driver was great! He provided cold water throughout the whole excursion. I would highly recommend! One tip if you plan on visiting Magen's Bay is to keep some extra cash on hand as it cost $5.00 per adult to get in. We were unaware of this and this fee cut into our tip for our driver. :(

This was absolutely a tour to remember. Picked up by our guide Sunny at the port. He was a blast from the get go. pleasant and happy. We were on the "party bus". People would look at us as we went by, from the music of bob Marley to the awesome horn of the bus and as a bonus, he was singing it too (or attempting ) lol. It seems he as having more fun than us. Went to the top of the hill for some banana daiquiri and saw the sights overlooking the port. Then off to the Magen's bay beach which was very clean both on sand and in water. The water was also clear. so relaxing. There is a small bar/restaurant by the beach for a quick snack. Also shower area. After a couple of hours it was back on the party bus for Sunny to sing for us. This is the most pleasant excursion I ever went on. Highly recommend to all. Maybe you'll get the chance to meet and hear Sunny too and you'll see what I mean.

We booked a tour while we were in St. Thomas during our Carnival cruise. It was FABULOUS and truly exceeded our expectations. Our ship arrived into port approx an hour later than scheduled. We were concerned that we might miss our tour. As soon as we made it through the gates at the port we saw the guide standing there with a sign and a smile!! He was very friendly and so much fun!! We laughed and had a good time throughout the tour. He was also very informative about the island and we were able to see all the things that we wanted to while in St. Thomas. Megan's Bay was beautiful!! I would highly recommend anyone to book a tour with them. It was a good price and well worth every penny!! :) Thanks for making our stop in St. Thomas awesome!!

Better than we thought
     5/5  (Visited on April 2014)
This tour was so much better than we thought that it would be. We actually thought it would be just a general overview of the island. But the staff was waiting for us when we got off the ship and were very kind (and spoke perfect, proper English). The tour of St. Thomas was lovely and informative. We went on to Magen's Beach which was something like out of a magazine. It was a nice drive back to the ship too. We loved St. Thomas and honestly look forward to going back there because of this tour.

Best day of the week

We enjoyed ourselves so much on this sightseeing/beach tour. It was just a good way to get out and see the best of the island. The guides knew their stuff - they were so nice, welcoming and informative. Very, very nice people. We had such a beautiful day, we only wish we had more time at the beach. I was impressed with St. Thomas and can see myself coming back again someday.

These were some of the best guides ever. I enjoyed hearing all of their stories and the history of their beautiful island paradise. And the beach!!! We loved Megan's Bay. Our only regret is that we had to go back to the ship. We do plan to return to St. Thomas.

 We haven't gone on the excursions yet but so far I am super pleased with the website. Especially because it asks for the cruise line info which is always scary for me to think we're going to miss the boat so I appreciate the validation of the cruise info.
