“Best day of our trip to St. Lucia was on this tour”

Reviewed 14 January 2010

We opted for going with Elvis on his boat tour rather than with the one through our resort. What a great decision!! After talking with others who took the resort tour, we realized we got to see more attractions and were completely taken care of, at a cheaper price too. Elvis is a genuine person who treated us like family. We loved the food his cousin cooked up for us, loved the snorkelling, the mud baths and Sulphur Springs were awesome. The waterfall was a bit of a let down, but oh well. The boat ride and the refreshments and the knowledge he shared as we passed the sites were all first rate. Thanks Elvis!

Well worth it. There were only 8 people on our tour. We left the Sandals Resort at about 9:00 AM and had a full day, returning at about 4:00PM. Elvis and his staff are wonderful people. The tour was personal and much better than the larger (more people) catamaran tour we took. The tour of the Soufriere area was really good with time spent shopping, walking though the town and lunch at a local home. The tour was not rushed, with plenty of time spent at each location. And they chose great locations, a waterfall you cold swim under, a mud bath and the best snorkeling site on St Lucia among others!

The tour operator for Son of Man (Elvis) approached us on the beach at the Sandals Regency the first morning we were there and explained to us how his trip was better than the one the hotel sold and it was less money. We decided to take him up and had the best day of our holiday. Elvis and his assistant Terry are two of the nicest people you could meet. They took excellent care of us the entire day showing us lots of exciting sites on the west side of the island including the Pitons, Sulphur Springs volcano, mud baths and Diamond waterfall among others. We were so impressed we hired them for a private cruise later in the week which was equally enjoyable.

Before you book any trip in St. Lucia you should see Elvis on the beach!

Met Elvis on the beach at Regency. After talking to other people on the beach that had gone we then booked a tour to see the island from the water. Turned out to be a VERY GOOD MOVE With a very small group of couples, we meet TERRY an EXCELLENT GUIDE on the boat we went along the coast to the Pitons. Included fantastic snorkeling, land trip to the volcano and waterfall, and great lunch at local place.
We had a great time they looked out for us and were genuine to showing us a good time.
If you're considering your options in St. Lucia, take a few minutes on the beach to meet up with them. It worked out very well for our group, hope it does for you too.

We were a group of 8 people on vacation at the Sandals Regency when "Elvis" of Son Of Man tours offered his services on the beach. We were a bit sceptic at first, especially when the Hotel discourages booking tours with "stangers on the beach". However, we didn't regret booking a tour with them at all!!

The boat ride was great, with drinks and fresh fruits, took us snorkling between the Pitons and multiple other scenic places like booth-bay. The tour also included visiting the volcano (with a guide!) and a quaint tropical parc with a beautiful waterfall.

We especially enjoyed being taken to a "local" restaurant (i.e. NOT a tourist trap), so we could enjoy really good local food with the Ste-Lucians.

The whole group was unanimous: two thumbs-up! highly recommended!!
