My husband and I with two other couples ages 36 to 52 arrived in St. Lucia via the Celebrity Summit. This was our first time in St. Lucia and we had high expectations after hearing so many good things about this island. We had been told to make sure we saw the Pitons and we also wanted to zipline on this island. After doing some research, I found a tour that would include both. We booked with Maximum Chill Out and our tour included a boat ride to Soufriere to see the Pitons, our zipline tour, a stop at a beach for a swim and another stop at Marigot Bay to take some pics. As soon as we got on the boat, we noticed it was VERY old and dirty. The "bathroom" was totally disgusting...I would have rather peed in a bucket on the back of the boat. We didn't really care for the town of Soufriere. We were picked up by van to make our way to the zipline tour through Hotwire Pitons Zipline Adventure (or something like that). We were told we were late which was because we ended up waiting for almost an hour before leaving the actual port...and we don't even know what the hold up was. Because we were apparently "late", we were RUSHED through our zipline adventure. The instructions were fast and not very clear. We didn't even have time to take pictures since we weren't even unhooked that they would be sending the next person down the line (SAFETY??). I'm sure we were done in about 15 minutes and there was 8 ziplines. I ziplined last year in St. Kitts and it was MUCH better! Once we were done, we wanted a group picture before getting out of our gear. We were told we didn't have time cause we were late and didn't want to miss our boat. So we hurried up, only to wait 15 minutes for our van to bring us back to the boat. Once we arrived at the boat, we had to wait over 30 minutes for the rest of the crew (they had done different tours). It was VERY hot and they had no food for us, only water or pop. So much for rushing through our tour...only to WAIT!! On our way back we stopped at a beach for a swim but it wasn't a very nice beach. The motor on the boat was REALLY loud, we could hardly hear ourselves speak. There was NO music on the boat at all and no entertainment. I ended sleeping for most of the drive there and back. It really wasn't worth the $104US we had to pay for this tour! Would NOT recommend this tour! For this reason, St. Lucia was on the bottom of our list of the 6 islands we saw on this trip! I did ask for a discount but was refused! :(
