From start to finish my best friend and I had an amazing trip. We contacted Jose via email and whats app. He was courteous and professional with our pickup and drop off to airport for a reasonable price. During our trip we paid for a tour or day trip to Friars Bay beach, and Mullet Beach. We ate delicious local food and he made recommendations on places we should visit. Finally we had a boating day with lunch at a local place and had good music, safe driving of the boat and weather. I even learned to snorkel a little. I am a nervous person. Definitely reach out to him to make the trip memorable

We had a great time with Jose at double the fun tours! This was a more personal tour which allowed for some flexibility, it was exactly what we were looking for. He is an amazing host and we enjoyed his stories. We are grateful for this special day.
We will be back, we hope to see Jose again soon!

Jose’ is the best!! He picked us up in a comfortable air conditioned SUV, and made sure that everyone on the tour got to do what they wanted. He knows everyone on the island and has friends everywhere. You will not be disappointed if you book with Double the Fun Tours. We can’t wait to return and will definitely call Jose’ again!

Jose met us at the pier and escorted us to his Lincoln MKX. Us and another couple for the next 6 hours had our own private tour of the island, with Jose showing us the jewels of the island along with a commentary that gave us an intimate view of this island that was so devastated by the hurricanes.His own personal experience during the hurricane made it even more real. His engaging personality was an added bonus and all four of us noticed that he must have known 3/4 of the St. Maarten population because he greeted everyone or he was greeted by them! We highly recommend Double the Fun and Jose for a great tour of St. Maarten.

Based on the reviews we thought this was going to be fantastic. We arrived at the designated point (which was very hard to find) and no one from Double the Fun Tours was there. All other tour companies were represented and checking people in. FINALLY, after asking a number of people, a random woman came up to us and asked if we were here for Double the Fun. We said "yes," and she asked for our voucher and walked away. I followed her to see where she was going, as she was on the phone. She said our driver would be here momentarily. I asked if it was Jose and she said "No, it will be someone that works for him." We waited and watched her walk around on the phone for another 10 minutes. She then came up to us and said that we were going to go with another family on a different tour. I asked what happened to Double the Fun driver and she said "He's off the island." What??? We went with another tour driver and were cramped in a small minivan. He offered us one drink while we were on the tour, not the unlimited amounts that were talked about on our tour. There was no rum punch and poor communication. We were rushed at all places. Orient Beach was nothing but a "leech" mentality. As SOON as you walked on the beach, people accosted you to either rent a chair, buy clothing, have your hair braided or get a massage. I didn't feel comfortable leaving my things on the beach alone, so I didn't even swim. I stood on the beach and watched. Maho beach was extremely small and SUPER crowded! You definitely couldn't leave your things, so again, I didn't swim. Oh, and the driver expected everyone to be dry before getting back in the cramped minivan. He wanted you to change clothes after the first beach and then get back in the bathing suits at the next beach. There were nasty bathrooms at both beaches. Marigot was another place that you get accosted to buy tons of things. Alll in all, it was an AWFUL, TERRIBLE experience. It was extremely overpriced for what you do.

If you want a great time as well as being educated then book your excursion with Double the fun tours in St. Maartens. Jose Jean who was my friends and I tour guide made our tour of both the Dutch and French side so enjoyable and knowledgeable. Jose's vast knowledge allowed us to appreciate the culture of St. Maartens. A stop at the famous local eatery Rosemarys, left me wanting more. Watching the planes arrive and take off from Maho beach,left my jaw on the floor. If you are in St.Maartens, book you tours with Double the fun tours. Trust me, you will not regret it. Thank you Jose for making our stay in St. Maartens a fun day and being the perfect host.

Jose' was great. He is a very friendly person who is extremely knowledgeable about the island even though he if from the states.
He customized the entire day just for the two of us and allowed us to do everything we wanted, including some excellent island cuisine in a place the "locals" go.
I would strongly recommend him to anyone who wants a great tour of St. Martin.

We never purchase Shore Excursions from the cruise directly so when we got off the ship and found Jose of Double the Fun tours we had a stroke of luck.

He is an absolutely amazing tour guide with a wonderful knowledge of local history, politics and geography. He has a warm smile and an easygoing personality. He makes you feel quite at home with his tour!

We visited both the French and Dutch sides of the island including sites like Marigot, Orient Beach and Maho Beach. He stopped off at a convenience store to allow us to buy beverages at a fraction of the price at restaurants and bars. His van is spacious and air conditioned.

He is great with children, he and my 3 year old got on really well! He stopped off so that they could have a chance to feed and pet iguanas.

We took other tours in other islands that were bland, in a hot cramped van and the driver was obviously just taking us to where his mates peddle their goods. This was NOT one of those tours. Jose is genuinely showing you the best of the island.

If you're going to St Maarten, especially on a cruise ship - skip the overpriced excursion and book directly with DTF Tours!

Our Royal Caribbean Cruise stop at Bermuda, St. Maarten and San Juan, Puerto Rico and R/C island. When we arrived in St. Maarten, the six of us had made no plans for a tour or what we were going to do other than look around. Thankfully Jose came up to us needing 4-6 more to fill his bus. He took us around both sides of the island. We went to see the jets taking off at Maho Beach. Then stopped at Rosemary's in Marigot for lunch if anyone was hungry, a stop at Orient Beach. All amazing but Jose was the best part with his jokes, enthusiasm, knowledge of the island made the day. He is one out of two of the best tour guides I have ever had. George N.

Went to St Martin on a cruise and wanted to take a tour of the island. We just happened upon Jose Jean. He gave us the ultimate tour of St Martin and Sint Maarten, which is the French side of the island. He took us to Orient Beach, Marigot, and to other places around the island. The tour was about 6 hours long and quite enjoyable.
We would highly recommend using this tour guide. Jose Jean is the owner and we toured the island in Lincoln Navigator. He also supplied water, beer and other drinks.
