Our guide and driver DJ was fantastic. We were a rowdy group of 18 cruise goers and he made our stop on the island fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the island and answered all of the questions that we had.

This was our second time to St. Maarten and we wanted to go to Maho Beach to watch the planes fly in. Our cruise line didn't offer what we were looking for so I found Bernard's Tours through ShoreExcursioneer. Our driver/guide, John, was amazing. Not only did we have transportation to and from the beach, but John stopped at a... More

Just want to thank Romeo for an amazing day on his home island. He was the best guide we could ever have hoped to get for the day. Very informative and friendly. Took us all over the island so we could see the true side of the island, not just the tourist sites. An what a lunch, fabulous food down... More

The tour was very informative and enjoyable. Lots of jokes, laughter and rum punch. Our tour guide the "Mailman" was friendly and welcoming he evened recommended this cosy french eatery "Sarafinas" for lunch which served up the most delicious french sandwiches and pastries.....absolutely delicious. The tour itself was good the only disappointment was that Orient beach was so windy no... More

We last used Bernard's Tours in 2011. When we decided to return to the island this past December we all decided to use Bernard again but this time we did a private tour! This was a very reasonably priced tour and gave us the flexibility to do exactly what we wanted to do on the island. Our driver (introduced himself... More

Took a while to find their location after we got off the ship. Then seemed to be delayed before we got started even though we were the only four on this tour. Traffic was terrible probably in part due to the fact that there were five cruise ships docked there. Once we got under way we traveled around the island... More

Spent a day in St Maarten on Harmony of the Seas (December 27th 2016) and booked a private tour through Bernard's. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the staff and within ten minutes or so we were on our way. Our guide was absolutely amazing, stopped at some very picturesque locations, whilst giving us an insight into the... More

I was on Bernard's beach tour on January 10th, 2017. I was grouped up with tourists from another ship that they had to get to at 1:30 pm while I didn't have to get to my ship until 4:30 pm. Ididn't find out about this until we were well underway on our tour. We rushed through the tour and only... More

We did Island tour 2 from our cruise ship and were not disappointed. The check-in point at the terminal was not an easy place to find, but that's not Bernard's fault. They are located by the other tours, the terminal just needs some better signage to guide guests. We were matched up with Romeo as our guide. He was fantastic!... More

Thanks for your review. And happy to hear you enjoyed your tour. Re-traffic, it's one of those unpredictable circumstances we have factored into our tour. Thus the reason Romeo was able to get you back to your ship on-time. More
