“So friendly and welcoming!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were on our honeymoon in St. Lucia and chose to splurge and have Serenity give us a private transfer to and from the airport. We were promptly picked up by Kaysha and Dane upon our arrival and they gave us a relaxing and welcoming tour of St. Lucia on the way to our resort. We stopped along the way at some beautiful vantage points for pictures, to get us fresh local fruit (they bought us some fresh local mangos from a farmer and even climbed trees to get us fresh guava and starfruit), and give us the chance to bake bread with a local baker. It was everything we were looking for from our private transfer and more. On the way back to the airport, Hans was just as courteous and welcoming.

We also chose to go on the Serenity Rhythm Discovery Tour during our stay to the island's local rum distillery. If you would like to go, we strongly recommend paying a little extra to take the private tour. After picking us up, Hans and Dane asked us what we really wanted to see in St. Lucia, and tailored the rest of the tour to our personal requests. My wife and I were looking to get some authentic souvenirs and to see some St. Lucian art/fashion. Hans and Dane brought us to a local fabric store and a shop where some St. Lucians were making wood sculptures that were absolutely beautiful. They then brought us to try some local bananas and sauces/marinades. This was all before we even reached the rum distillery, where we were given a private tasting of over 15 different rums, and a tour of the facilities.

We highly recommend choosing Serenity Vacations and Tours for any of your sightseeing/adventurous needs. The guides are attentive and knowledgeable, and within 15 minutes, we felt like we were touring the island with old friends.

“Great tour!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We did a Serenity Rhythm Discovery Tour during our time in St. Lucia. The tour was wonderful and our whole group of 11 people had an amazing time. Our tour guides, Hans and Dwayne, were the best!They were knowledgeable, fun, and made sure everyone was having a great time. I definitely would recommend Serenity to anyone looking for a great tour in St Lucia.

“Zip Line via Serenity”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We booked a trip to the Zip Line in Dennery via Serenity while on a cruise the week of July 7.

The two young men they sent to pick us up could not have been better representatives of their island. They shared tons of info about the island and pointed out various sites along the way. On the way back to the ship they stopped at several overlooks to let us take photos as well as stopping and picking fresh local from several trees for us to sample.

The trip to and from the zip line was just about as much fun as the zip line thanks to our guides.

“First class service”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We're not ones for group tours so we went with Serenity for 3 private tours after reading such great reviews on TripAdvisor. On each occasion they were terrific and we got to see a lot more of the real St Lucia than we would have otherwise.

The highlight was a whole day where we did the Gros Piton climb, Volcano Tour, mineral / sulphur bath and lunch overlooking the pitons. What a great day without any queues or hassles.

Thank you to all the staff who helped organise the tours as well as Hans for making it to the top of the Piton with me.

We can't wait to come back!

“Grenadines tour the best!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Yes, it's pricey; but well worth the bucks! I booked about 6-7 weeks in advance, gave 2 dates and did not find out until the day we arrived if another 7 folks also booked as a total of 9 were needed to fill the 10-seater plane leaving from Castries' airport to Union Island.

We were picked up at our villa in Gros Islet that morning and 2 other ladies had already been picked up. We had to fill out customs info, make the payment and wait for some of the others to arrive so it took about an hour before we left Castries airport. The pilot pointed out all the beautiful islands along the way and we arrived to Union Island in about 45 minutes. Again we had to go thru customs and backpack checks; but it only took a few minutes this time. Once out of the airport building, a golf cart was waiting to take us just a few hundred feet down the road to Anchorage Yacht Club where our catamaran was waiting. We stepped off the golf cart right onto the pier!

Once on the catamaran, the crew of the Yannis really took good care of us. A fabulous breakfast was served almost immediately - I'm talking bacon, sausage and eggs, toast and chocolate muffins! Along with champagne and/or punch. The crew kept us entertained and answered any questions we had throughout the day as we stopped at Palm Island (picked up 20 more passengers), Mayreau and the Tobago Cays. We had another great meal for lunch and then headed back to Palm Island to drop off our passengers and spent about 30 minutes there.

Then it was back to the golf cart and the Union Island airport. Our plane and pilot was waiting for us and we took off quickly. Once back to Castries airport our Serenity guide arrived within about 5 minutes to take us back to our villa in Gros Islet. The only other tour that even comes close to the amazing time we had on this tour is a day sail we took from St. Vincent to Bequia while on a Princess cruise. So glad we did it!

PS You only need to spend more money if you want to buy sourvenirs on Mayreau or Tobago Cays.
