“fantastic tour with a fantastic person!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a land based tour which is completely tailored to you and your needs. We booked our tour as a private one as we have 2 young boys and thought they may annoy anyone else on the trip!!! Sean arrived at our resort with a great beaming smile and put us all at ease straight away! He gave us all a map of Antigua and asked us what we wanted to do. Our boys wanted to visit the donkey sanctuary and have ice-cream, my hubby and I wanted to visit Nelsons dockyard and a Caribbean beach so after a little thought Sean had planned our day out! Sean is a local boy and is extremely knowledgable about loads of things and will happily answer all questions put him however daft they may be! We visited all the places we wanted to see, plus a couple of other places (Shirley heights, Dows hill interpretation centre) we were never rushed and basically left to it. For lunch he took us to a local restaurant called Caribbean taste, the food was amazing, a real treat. Sean is such a nice guy and so easy to get on with, we all laughed so much and before we knew it the day was coming to an end. We ended our day at Freds ice cream parlour in St Johns and we all indulged in some very nice ice cream! We all had such a brilliant day and we would highly recommend Sean and his tour. everyone.

“Great day tour of Antigua!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We had a great experience with Sean from the minute he picked us up at our cruise ship until he dropped us off. We saw all there was to see of this beautiful and picturesque island. The local lunch spot was amazing. Sean's personality says it all. We got to see Devil's Bridge, Nelson's Dockyard and much more. Also got to taste their delicious black pineapple! He is so proud of his island and it shows in his tour! I will definitely use Sean's services when I return to Antigua. Sean, you are the greatest!

“You won’t be disappointed!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I highly recommend Sean; he is so knowledgeable and passionate about Antigua. I found his company via Trip Advisor and contacted him through his web site arranging everything prior to leaving the UK. He collected us from our hotel on time and explained what he had planned for our day, but asked if there was anything we wanted to see in addition to his itinerary.

From the very moment we stepped in to his air conditioned vehicle we were made to feel completely at ease, and encouraged to ask questions. We saw all the sights, learned about the history of the island, gained in-depth knowledge on Antigua Culture. Spending time with Sean is like spending time with an old friend.

I promise, when you tour with Sean you don’t just see the sights you feel them too!

“Best Way To See Antigua”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We visited Antigua while on a southern Caribbean cruise. We first looked at the tours offered through the cruise ship and then booked with Sean. His tour is less expensive, personal, informative, relaxed and customized to take you to the places you want to see. He met us at the ship at the time that we chose and made the whole day about us. We could spend as much, or as little, time as we liked at each stop. Sean is funny, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the island. Lunch at Caribbean Taste was awesome and was included in the price. We would highly recommend this tour - it was the highlight of our vacation!

“Favorite part of our trip!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Sean makes this amazing excursion into anything you want it to be! We really had no specific places that we knew we wanted to see, so we left it up to him. My husband asked about Cricket on the island, and before we knew it, we were at the Cricket stadium! We also wanted to know more about the history of the island and Sean took us to some awesome historical sites. Our lunch stop at a local restaurant, Caribbean Taste, was one of our favorite meals of the week! We had so many stops and activities, I can't list them all!

We enjoyed asking Sean questions about life on the island, his family, island history, etc. We literally asked every question we could think of. He answered all of our many questions with honest and very insightful answers. Sean is so personable and friendly, that there is no way you could have a bad time. You can tell that he truly loves the island and loves showing guests around.

We will be talking about this day with Sean for a long time, and would do it again any time!
Thank you Sean, for showing us your beautiful island!
