We hired Solomon along with his crew (Gadson the van driver and Martin who helped with the boat) for a private tour for our family of four. Best money ever spent! Don't hesitate to email him as he gets right back to you with any questions you may have. With our boys only being 10 and 6 we were a bit nervous about this adventure but Solomon exceeded all of our expectations! His kind and gentle manner throughout the day was so appreciated. Our trip started with him picking us up at our hotel. We had a very knowledgeable and enjoyable ride through the beautiful country with Martin giving us a history of the island. (The roads are very curvy and up and down so a word of advice....take gravol with you if you get motion sickness.) However the sights were more than worth it! We enjoyed the drive-through the volcano and sulphur spring bath. Solomon and Gadson took care of us and our two boys every step of the way making each moment fun for all of us. He also had cold drinks for us and the boys along the way. After, we went for a swim under the Diamond Falls. Solomon and Gadson always made sure they were taking pictures with our camera for us which was so appreciated! After, we were taken to the marina to board 'Justice', Solomon's boat. What a cool way to see the coastline of St. Lucia! Good-bye and thanks to Gadson for being a wonderful host up to this point! The boat ride was amazing in itself. We then went to Sugar Beach to snorkel and enjoy a delicious lunch served by Solomon's sister. Great experience for all of us even though our 6 year old got stung by a sea urchin.....Solomon and the locals took very good care of us! Next time, we will make sure he is wearing water shoes as he did not have on flippers. After, we enjoyed a black sand beach and some more snorkling. Solomon and his crew went at our pace all day and always made sure we were happy. Drinks were always offered (for big and little people!) and there was no time limit to our fun. We also enjoyed the most delicious fresh mangos ever tasted.....nothing like the ones bought in Canadian grocery stores! On the boat ride back, Solomon let our 10 year old steer the boat.......that was by far the highlight of his entire trip to St Lucia. Thank-you to Solomon and his crew for the most memorable day and excursion ever! Everyone back at our resort was jealous of our adventure as they had booked excursions at our hotel that could not even begin to compare to our day!

We were having a recent caribbean cruise and booked a tour with Solomon in Ste Lucia.(we had read many good reviews on Tripadvisor).
We were picked up at the cruise ship and taken on a boatride along the western coast of the island to a lovely beach(Sugar beach) for snorkeling and such a delicious home-cooked lunch.Drinks were available all day long!Then he took us to another great black sand beach(anse chastanet) for more snorkeling. In the meantime he dropped us at Soufriere where a taxi drove us up to the volcano, sulphur springs ,water falls and mud baths. Fantastic! So much fun..Ste Lucia is so beautiful, the Pitons are breathtaken.
Solomon and his brother are friendly guys,excellent guides and professional. Thank you again Solomon!
Highly recommend!

I booked Solomon for a full day tour when my family (8 of us) came to St Lucia on a cruise ship. What a great day and beautiful island. Solomon was waiting for us right outside the port, and his boat is docked literally 100 yards from the cruise ship. We went down to Sugar Beach between the Pitons which is one of the most scenic beaches we have been to. Solomon's mother owns the only little shop on the beach and she also cooks us a great lunch. His brother and sister are also very helpful. We laughed at the catamarans packed with 50 tourists from our private boat. This is the only tour worth doing. We even had my 80 year old grandmother and Solomon took great care of her, she loved it! Perfect day start to finish, great beaches, snorkeling, lunch, drinks, amazing family. We will miss Solomon and his beautiful island.

Soloman was a great tour guide, friendly, knowledgable about the island, and made sure that we all got what we were looking for. We actually met him the first day to take us snorkeling. WE had such a great time that we booked him for an entire day where he took us from Soufriere up to Castrilles for shopping and then to Margot Bay for some rum tasting. If you are looking for a great trip, use Solomon.

Though we came to St. Lucia looking to relax, the one thing I told my husband that I wanted to do was snorkel. He found Solomon online, and with his help, planned an awesome half day adventure. Solomon picked up from our resort and delivered us right to his boat (with only one quick stop to collect some necessary beverages for our trip!). We enjoyed seeing and hearing about some of the island's attractions on our way to the first snorkeling stop at Anse Cochon. We were given about 30 minutes to enjoy this spot before moving on to Anse Chastenet, and finally, Sugar Beach. At Sugar Beach, Solomon brought us an authentic island lunch prepared by his mother. I've never seen so much food, and every bite was delicious. Even though the trip was finished, Solomon continued to check in on us to see if there was anything else we needed. He was super friendly and laid back, and we had a great time!
