Overall rating

4.6 / 5

The tour was very good and is recommended. Seven Mile Beach has disappointed. The place where we were dropped off was so crowded with people that you hardly noticed anything from the beach. One point off for the extremely poor directions to the pickup location at the cruise terminal (supposedly across from the Margaritaville restaurant on Harbor Rd). The street does not exist or has been renamed and the restaurant no longer exists either. Luckily we were there early and had time to search. Correct description would be: Just turn right to the pavilion with the tour operator's poster.

Gio was a terrific tour guide and shared interesting information about the island along the way. Sampling local beer means taking a can of local beer from the cooler on the bus (fine but not really what we expected) and the restaurant was good but right next to the cruise port so definitely on the beaten path. The distillery guide was informative and entertaining.

Amazing experience. We loved every part of the tour and would highly recommend it.

the guide is really good and the tour is beautiful! highly recommended
