Llyod was fantastic!
My friend and I visited Antigua Feb 2020 and hired Lloyd for airport pick up and again for an island tour. We immediately hit it off with Lloyd upon airport pick up. On time, super friendly and very knowledgeable. A simple taxi ride turned into a very informative conversation about the island and things we saw en route to our resort.

We asked Lloyd for recommendations on places to visit as well as places we wanted to visit so he created an itinerary for us. We spent literally the entire day with him. Picked up about 1030am and got back to JBR around 6pm. It was fabulous! He made stops along the way to show us things as he saw them- educated us on many plants and trees, stopped at a pineapple farm, stopped and he got us black pineapple to try (the sweetest pineapple in the world), went to Nelson's dockyard, Dow's Hill, Devil's Bridge, The Donkey Sanctuary, visited a friend of his that showed us his bees and got to sample honey right from the hive! We also stopped at Dickenson Bay. We wanted to visit the floating bar there but we arrived much later than anticipated so we sat and had supper at a restaurant on the beach.

I highly recommended Lloyd!!

Hope to be back in Antigua sooner than later and if we are, we'll see you then Lloyd!

Wonderdul tour of the island!
Thank you Lloyd for a great educational fun filled day. I would probably say lunch at Shirley Heights was my favorite part of the tour. They had great food for being out in the middle of no where.

Thorough tour of the island!
It was great to spend the day touring with Lloyd who was quite knowledgeable about the history or the island, the flora and fauna around Antigua (one could open a pharmaceutical company on island with all of the plants and flowers that have medicinal use) and his color commentary added a touch of fun! This all day adventure provided a complete understanding of Antigua's history and current day life...the only thing we had to cut from our trip was a visit to the rainforest because it was already close to 8 hours of touring! I would recommend this tour to anyone who had the day to explore the wonders of Antigua!

What an amazing tour. History can sometimes become a little boring but Lloyd made this tour really great. I have travelled across the world and I haven’t had anyone make us laugh so much.

Brilliant Day Trip
Nov 2019
If you want to see all that Antigua has to offer as well as the tourist hotspots then this is the tour for you. My sister and I booked this tour from the UK.

Lloyd was a superb guide and is extremely knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna of the island. We visited all the tourist attractions as part of the package however Lloyd went the extra mile and showed us some beautiful views especially sunset at Darkwood Beach and we got to sample some fresh fruit and local honey. Lloyd was punctual, courteous and polite and ensured we got to see local day to day life as well as understanding the geography of the island.

Thank you Lloyd for a fabulous day out!! We hope to return to Antigua again!

Great knowledable tour of Antigua
Thanks Lloyd for a really interesting tour. So much information and knowledge that you shared and loved hearing about your passion for Antigua. The sites were all different and interesting in their own way. A perfect way to get to know the island. Thanks again.

Lloyd was our host we had requested private tour & nothing was too much trouble, stopped to point out loads of interesting stuff about local plants & flora & was really knowledgeable (ask him to show you the little known Sausage Tree at Jolly Harbour). My other half loves his cricket so built in tours of old & new stadiums, in addition to usual stops at Shirley Heights, English Harbour, Devils Bridge, Betty’s Hope etc. In a lovely cool air conditioned car & kept us refreshed with fruit & rum punch. Lloyd was lovely & a fun host & made our day really enjoyable- thanks Lloyd!
