If you have time for only one tour while in Antigua, this is THE ONE. We researched a lot of options and are beyond thankful that ended up choosing this one.

Alvin, our tour guide, deserves a special shout out. With his encyclopedic knowledge of all things Antigua, the Caribbean, and, well, pretty much the world, Alvin delivered a 5+ hour masterclass in Antiguan history, culture, politics, and economy. We'd done research about Antigua before arriving, but Alvin shared a more nuanced, wide-ranging, cohesive, and absolutely riveting narrative than we could have imagine.

Alvin was willing to entertain any question and exhibited staggering depth of knowledge of anything we threw at him (just a few examples: history of the pineapple, Antigua's desalinization and power generation facilities, the cricket world cup, volcanic island formation, etc.). He was friendly, engaging, and enthusiastically shared his knowledge at every stop and during every moment in between. Never a dull moment the entire trip.

And then, of course, there are the sights. In terms of the destinations, you're embarking on a sight-seeing tour that takes you around the entire island - stopping at sites historic (Nelson's Dockyard), geologic (Devil's Bridge), and panoramic (Long Bay and, of course Shirley Heights). The destinations alone were worth the tour at twice the price.

This tour was an wonderful way to get a feel for how all the sites you've read about are connected.

Don't hesitate a moment to take this tour. This was hands-down the best tour experience we've had.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Sean was our tour guide and took us to all the top places to see-was so knowledgeable about everything on the island!! He even stopped at a local place to make us dinner reservations! Next time we are on the island, we will do another tour with him. Very accommodating to our every need or want. On the Covid side. Private so no worries about being crammed in with others, always sanitized before going into any establishment, he said he is tested every week. Made us feel very comfortable. If you take the tour ask for Sean!!

Excelente tour! Sean was very friendly, informative and kept us engaged during the whole tour. I traveled with ny family of4 and the price was the same as a shared tour. We decided to book a private tour because we traveled with 2 kids. Sean was very patient and accommodating to us. We will definitely book again

Sean from VIP Tours was amazing! We did a private island tour and enjoyed every moment thanks to Sean’s pleasant demeanor and full knowledge of the island. From start to finish he taught us many things about Antigua and it’s secrets, and sprinkled through gave us insight into the life of its people. We would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! Thank you Sean!

We had a party of 6 and had Antigua VIP tours pick us up and bring us back to the airport and thoroughly enjoyed our private island tour. We were picked up at the agreed time from our resort then treated to a wonderful day of sightseeing and adventure by our tour guide Sean. He saw to everything — taking pictures of us together, pointing out the important sights, and ensuring our every comfort from drinking water (it’s way hotter here then it is at home) to a delicious local lunch with the most spectacular views and delicious rum punch. He said he had rum punch in the van but we never tasted this because the day just flew by way to fast! We all had our favorites of the trip. Devils Bridge was our first stop. Sean said the water usually is combining up over the rocks except but the day we were there it was was not windy so no big waves. Next we went to Betty Hope. It was very educational. Next was Nelson’s Dock Yard which was all of our favorite spot to explore. We stopped at the most beautiful beach and walked down it. If we would have thought about it this would have been a great time to have a rum punch in hand. Lunch at Shirley Heights was delicious with wonderful views to go with it. Look out point also had very beautiful views. At some point we drive through the national forest. Which was beautiful and we stopped to get a black pineapple which wasn’t quit ready but Sean told us how to store it once we got back to the resort and when yo eat it. Oh my goodness that was the best pineapple I have ever had. Next time I will buy some to eat also. Dowe’s Hill Interpretion Center we explored then watched a movie on the history of Antigua.

Highly recommend to anyone wanting to get a close up view of Antigua local culture and breathtaking island sights!! Sean was a fabulous tour guide and very professional and knowledgeable of his home of Antigua.

Sean also picked us up at the airport and then took us back. He talked the whole way. We learned so much from Sean. We were also going to do a beach day but I postponed it till the next time we visit Antigua. We all wanted to experience the beaches while they were full of life.
