“Son of Man tour”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

First trip for my wife and I to the Caribbean and st Lucia. Stayed at La Toc Sandals resort and met Porsha on the beach who was selling a tour called "The Son of Man'. Nowhere in any of our travels have we had a better tour. It gave us a great sense of the island in a fun, relaxed, comfortable atmosphere with four other couples. Our guide, Terry, driver Jack Sparrow were both competent, knowledgeable and entertaining. Money well spent.

“It was such a beautiful and amazing place that words can't describe!!!!”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

It was our last day before we left that we took this tour. Our tour guide was Terry and Jack Sparrow was the driver of our boat. These two guys were Great!!!!!!! Terry was an amazing guide. He took us to the Volcano for our mud bath, then the waterfall, his family's restaurant in Soufriere ------- the food was sooooo good. There's nothing like good local island home cooking. After that we did some shopping in a local store got back on the boat to go snorkeling for an hour. Once we got done there we rode the water looking at all the beautiful scenery of this amazing island. Terry made sure that everybody was included and you knew everything about the island. We got to stop at a cove where they shot part of The Pirates of the Caribbean. Honestly I could have stayed on that boat all day which really you kinda are cause the tour is 9 to 3, but I tell you it's worth it especially to see what you get to see. Touring on a boat you see so much more than you do on land. St. Lucia is captivating and extremely breathtaking. I will say this was the best day we had the whole time there!!!!!!! If you ever get the chance to go please take this tour. I promise it will be the best experience and you'll be pleased. Trust me it's definitely worth the money!!!!!!!!

“IF YOU ARE IN ST. LUCIA, YOU MUST DO THIS!!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

So when a man approaches you on a beach and takes credit cards it seems like the sketchiest thing you could possibly sign up for, but its totally legit and was the BEST part of our trip. We stayed at Sandals LaToc and they picked us right up on the beach. The tour included snorkeling, the rainforest with waterfall, eating at his aunts house (yes, seriously) and the best part was the sulfur springs and mud bath. While on the boat going place to place they serve beer and rum punch. EVERYTHING is included for $100, boat ride, food/drinks, cab ride, tours, EVERYTHING. Just make sure you aren't wearing a bathing suit with any white on it in the mud bath, it will turn orange and I learned that the hard way. absolute must do tour while staying in St. Lucia, you have a blast and see all the attractions and get a local experience of the island. Definitely pass on the hotel tour and go with Son of Man!

“Best island excursion EVER!”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

This was our fifth cruise and third time in St. Lucia, and Son of Man was hands-down the best island excursion we have ever done. We got to see so much more of St. Lucia than with any other tour (Pitons, Soufriere, mud baths, waterfall and lunch in a local home) and our guide, Gabby, was not only extremely informative, but positively hilarious! We would do this exact trip again in a heartbeat. We were with my children (7 and 9) and my mother (65) and everyone had an equally great time. The guides were wonderful with the kids, we felt completely safe, and couldn't imagine a lovelier way to spend the day. Thank you, Son of Man, Elvis and especially Gabby!

“Spectacular Scenery”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

We had a great time with our guide Terry and Captain Jack despite a little mix up of ending up on the water tour instead of the land tour. The mix up was handled amicably by Elvis( the owner). Pick up at the port was easy and the boat ride enjoyable. Terry was quite entertaining and knowledgeable of the area. The mud bath (mineral hot springs) was so soothing and the scenery of the island was spectacular. This is one of the prettier islands we have seen. We would recommend this tour to anyone and we will definitely do it again on our next visit to the island.
