My favourite part of the tour was the historical tour. Our tour guide Luis was so knowledgeable and passionate about the town’s history. He also had a great personality.

I highly recommend this company. Very professional and courteous service. They were waiting for us upon disembarkation and drove safely.

Thank you Edwin and Luis for showing us the rich history, great beach, and restaurant in your beautiful town. This was a dream vacation for my husband and me.
Will rate it 10/10

I really enjoyed this tour, it was a small group and we got a private city tour. Luis and Edwin were great.
Highly recommend. The only thing I wish they did was have a bigger variety of shops, they were limited.
Disappointed in the tour.
Susie_B, 12-12-2022
Most of the walking tour was spent shopping. Very little touring. I could have done this on my own. Not much historical information given. Halk the time was waiting in stores while people on the tor shopped. Not what I was expecting.
An easy walk through town, with a few less-than-exciting stops.

We took this tour while on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. Knowing that cruise lines don't have their own guides in each port, it often makes sense to book with an excursion company, rather than the cruise line. We ran into a little trouble early, as 23 (of the 29) people on our tour showed up 30 minutes late. This tour was more of an "enthusiasm" tour....with lots of shouting (are we having a good time) and loud music, as opposed to actual historical content and learning. Our tour guide (Luis) was friendly, but perhaps a little hard to understand (and we are experienced with Latino accents). Stops included a Rum Factory, town square, and a flea market (which was really just a local store that obviously kicks back to the tour). In their defense, there isn't a lot of historical perspective and knowledge available for younger nations. The majority of the Caribbean islands will have similar backgrounds from a historical timeline. At no time did we feel pressured into buying anything or going somewhere we didn't want. But I also don't feel like I learned anything, and I really had no interest in buying anything at the flea market or rum factory. Maybe I shouldn't have taken the tour......but you can decide for yourself.
Good tour for those who want this one.

We did not get the tour that we signed up for which is a disappointment because we chose the one that included the cable car and botanical gardens. We did not want to do the shopping and it was way too much walking for our grandparents.
