“St Maarten, Philipsburg - great island tour, with good guide”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Took a 4 hour tour from the port when we went ashore during a Caribbean cruise, with friends. Good value tour, much cheaper than the ship. Comfortable air-conditioned van and a knowledgeable, friendly driver, made visiting the island's highlights a really enjoyable experience. Plenty of photo stops at good viewpoints and a nice beach stop to cool the feet in the sea. Can recommend.

“St.Marteen Day Tour”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We have booked a tour with Friendly Island Tours for a few hours during a cruise stop and it was a very pleasant experience. Our guide was very informative and willing to answer all of our questions. The big advantage touring with Friendly Island Tours is that they can tailored the tour according to your needs and objectives. I would recomend this company to anyone going to St. Maarten.

“Fantastic Trip/Wonderful Guide”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

My wife and I booked a tour with Friendly Island Tours and we could not have been happer! Booking was easy. Our guide Miny was awesome. She made us feel welcome and tailored our tour to do what we wanted. Miny was very informative and fun. We asked for a special non-tourist place for lunch and her pick was perfect. I would recomend this company to anyone going to St. Maarten.

“Great Tour & Great Guide”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

My family was late but our guide was waiting with a big smile. We had a wonderful tour that was less expensive and more personal then if we booked it through the cruise ship. Our guide was very friendly and very informative. She took us to the iguana farm and brought food for us to feed them. At first we were a little frightened of them but they were very friendly. She took us to the French side of the island to the beach. She stopped so we could take pictures. You couldn't have had a better tour. At the end she dropped my grand-daughter and I off in town for us to shop and was kind enough to take my husband back to the ship. We spent three wonderful hours with our guide and would definitely recommend this company to everyone.

“Wonderful tour guide”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

The guide asked us (as a group) if we were more interested in the beaches or shopping. We said shopping so she tailored the tour to allow us more time to shop.
She stopped on the road because a mongoose was chasing a lizard, she was just as (if not more) excited as us to see it.
