    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Amuseum Naturalis, Route de Quartier d'Orleans, Quartier D'Orleans 97150 St Martin / St Maarten

    The Natural History Museum is one of the stops during the History Tour. Find out which animals live on St Martin, how they arrived here or whether they're endemic or invasive. This museum is set up in and around The Old House, a former plantation.

    We have our iced coffee/ tea and banana bread snack break here.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Fort Louis, Marigot 97150 St Martin / St Maarten

    The 3rd stop during the History Tour is Fort Louis in the capital of the French side of St Martin, Marigot. Beautiful viewpoint and great stories about the battles that took place there. Not only between St Martin's French and neighbouring British Anguilla, and the Spanish, but also against it's own islanders, the Dutch St Maarteners.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    David really knows his history! Great way to see the island and learn so much on history and gossip of St Maarten! He also told us all about the hurricane as well. The cake and coffee were very nice as well.

    David was very knowledgeable about the history and vegetation on the island. We traveled around and into the entire island; seeing things we would have not on our own. Very enjoyable and we'll worth the price.

    David picked us up from a car park just outside the ferry port. But he picked the other lady up at her hotel in town, so I am sure David would suggest somewhere practical.
