Overall rating

At the beginning of the tour we discussed with our driver and guide what would make the most sense and decided on a trip to Soufrière with a visit to the volcanic fields, the sulfur baths, a waterfall and a short beach stop. Our driver was a very friendly and extremely knowledgeable local with a comfortable, almost new car. He accompanied us expertly through the sulfur pools, always keeping an eye on our things and explaining everything to us well. We stopped several times to take fun photos and enjoy the great views of the bays and the Pitons. On the way back there was a stop at a restaurant where delicious cakes were baked from cassava. The island of St. Lucia is a beautiful island!

Wonderful day touring the island with Kimbert. He was knowledgeable and professional. He told us so much about the island along the way. The car was comfortable and well stocked with snacks and beverages. As a private tour, we were able to do all the things of interest to us without dealing with a larger group of people or spending time on things that did not particularly interest us just to do the one thing that did. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our tour with Viernele Pinder! We went to the volcano, mud baths and waterfall. Very helpful navigating local vendors. We stopped at the chocolate store. Very knowledgeable about the island and pointed out different foliage! Highly recommend this tour!!

Amazing trip across the mountains to the mud baths and waterfall. Finished with a lunch at the beach….Brent was a lovely guide, courteous and helpful 😊

Great experience! Timely pickup, got to see everything that we wanted and even more. Really recommend!
