The caves once used as shelters by freedom fighters of the Brigand war, brightly colored tropical birds and lush vegetation that includes giant gommiers (used to make canoes), the smaller swizzlestick tree ( used to make swizzle sticks) and "peeling tourists" - trees with flaky brown bark that looks painfully familiar to anyone who's fallen asleep on the beach without sunblock.

We booked the private island tour and was blessed to get such a great driver/tour guide Nixon, he was able to inform us on what was the best route, to see as much as we can for the day. We took a very scenic drive down to Castry’s market where we did a lot of local shopping and had Nixon to guide us on the best spots to see. We then made our way to pigeon Island with its beautiful views and gorgeous beach, we enjoyed this tour with Nixon so much that we decided to book it again, on the next tour we stopped off at several viewpoints, had a rum taste in experience, met a guy with a snake selling snake oil, saw a Piton viewpoint, went to the sulphur Springs and waterfall and chilled out with some locals in a local village. This was absolutely magical and the guidance and knowledge of Nixon made it all the more special, couldn’t of asked for a better Driver/Tour guide then Nixon highly recommend you request him for your trip you won’t be disappointed

The mud bath was a bit quick but very well organized. Swimming at the waterfalls is really refreshing and safe. Superb local meal. In addition, our driver and guide was extraordinary in her support throughout the day. We recommend it. Good communication before the activity to coordinate the pick-up as we arrived and left by boat. Superb landscapes along the way both on the outward and return journey. We recommend it.

Our driver Vincent William was the best! My friends and me had an amazing ride from and to the airport. He stopped in various view points along the way and explained some of the history from the island. We were offered cold local beers and water in the car and he also let us put music! I would totally recommend it if you want to start and finish your holiday properly!

Nothing to improve, NIXON our driver is the guy for the job. He made everything easy and made sure whatever was wanted or needed was provided. Would advise anyone taking this tour to ask for Nixon.

Wonderful time with Sylvester our driver. Over and above expectations
