We had a group of 12 persons book an All-day tour through Serenity Tours in St. Lucia....and had a wonderful, fun-filled experience, due largely to Dave, our host/driver....he was informative, friendly, and had a great personality. He is definitely a 5-star tour guide. *****

The tour was by land and sea....and filled with exciting adventures....including the Toraille Waterfall, a banana plantation, the drive-in Volcano, a rum tasting tour, and various other sites.

Also, 5 of our group booked a helicopter flight through John with Serenity Tours....and flew to the Pitons....what an incredible view it was....

Thanks to everyone at Serenity for making our vacation to St. Lucia so special....

We booked the Serenity Island tour through the Serenity website and had a great tour with our host Swabie. We had a great day with him as we toured the Island hitting several picturesque photo oppertunities. We viewed the Pitons, Morne Fourtune, Margot Bay, went through the Toreille Fall & Botanical gardens which is beautiful. We drove into the volcano and took a walking tour while there. The food on this tour was awsome as Swabie took us to a Banana Plantation and discribed the growing process and hand picked us some banana's to eat that was unlike any you have ever tasted as they was right off the tree not frozen like we get here in the states. He took us to a bread shop and got us some creole bread... umm umm. We went to this great resturant on top of this mountain with incredible views to have lunch, it was buffett style and it was great food, i want some more....lol. We went to a rum tasting shop and tased some good rum and took a few bottles home with us. We would highly reccomend you taking this tour as it was one of our favorites on the cruise and Swabie was awesome, he was very educational about his island.. He made us feel at home and I have found a new friend in him. I hope to get back to visit with him some day and if he ever comes to the states he would be welcome to my home as a dear friend.

Here is their website, please go book you wont be dissapointed http://www.serenitytvl.com/

We were in St Lucia in April 2010 and wanted to see most of the island. We booked the land and sea tour through Serenity. This was a good day trip since we didn't have too much time. They lived up to the high reviews. Francis was an excellent tour guide. Do not miss this tour. It really was the highlight of our trip.

We experienced beyond first class service. We booked the 1/2 island and 1/2 sea excursion and zip-lining on another day. There were 4 of us who booked and with great luck ended up being just the 4 of us for the land portion of the tour. Sherma & Dave were so knowledgeable and patient with our thousands of questions and so willing to stop where ever we requested. The homemade local snacks were such an added bonus we really felt that serenity really went the extra mile for us. When we had a special request it was Dave, Sherma and John who were able to make it happen even surprising the staff at the Sandals Regency who had had no luck trying. I was thoroughly impressed with the ease of booking, the promptness of pickup times and how organized everything was for us. Even zip lining was organized so we arrived well before the big crowds so we could have 2 guides assist us. I ended up going tandem as I was terrified of the whole thing which would not have been possible had we arrived a 1/2 hour later. Again Serenity making sure we were ahead of the crowds. What was really fun was when we were comparing our tour with other folks around the resort and relaying all we had done and seen and learned we had more people asking us who we went with as they did not receive/see/know that .

My wife and I stayed at Sandals Grnade St. Lucian from February 12th to February 23rd 2010. Serenity Tours made our trip one we will never forget. We started out by taking a Helicopter Transfer from the airport in the south to the small airport in the north. We booked this through Serenity Tours. John of Serenity Tours was waiting for us when our helicopter landed and took us to our hotel in a very nice air conditioned van. He had some very good rum punch for us to drink during the ride. John was not sure when we would arrive because there was a snowstorm in Atlanta when we were leaving for St. Lucia. John had heard reports that out flight may not arrive until 8:30pm that evening, we did arrive on schedule at 3pm. John said he had planned on going to the airport in the south to pick us up and give us a private transfer to our resort if we arrived late, since the helicopter only runs until sunset. This was only the start of all the very special first-class service we received from Serenity Vacations & Tours during our stay.

We also booked a tour to the Magical Grenadines through Serenity Tours. This tour was spectacular and it is one my wife and I will never forget. It was stunning! Everything from the ridefrom our resort to the airport to the plane rides to our boat ride with Captain Yannis in the Grenadines was First Class. I will do this tour again when I go back to St. Lucia one day. I would say this is one tour you should not miss. It is rather expensive, but worth it. Again, do not miss this tour!

We also went on a tour with Serenity that was called the Land & Sea Tour (partial private). Dave of Serenity Tours was our driver and guide for the day and we had a great time with him and he did a great job. The driving part of the tour was private, so we could spend as much or as little time as we wanted at any location. It was worth it to us to have this part of the tour private. Maggie from Serneity Tours also joined us on this tour for the day and she was a pleasure to have along and has many interesting stories to share about St. Lucia. Her 20 mile walk to school on the island as a young girl was a story that really stood out to me. This was a great time in every way! We always felt like we were with family. We had a great lunch at a open air restaurant overlooking the Pitons. It was beautiful We did and saw so many things that day. Then they dropped us off at a boat and we joined a group of people for a very nice cruise back up to the northern part of the island where the cruise ships come in. When we arrived, Dave of Serenity Tours was waiting for us with a smile on his face and drove us back to our resort. Of course he had some rum punch for us to drink during the ride.

On Friday we went on a special tour with some of the gang from Serneity Tours. We went to the Friday Night Jump Up in Castries and it was well worth the trip. John and his wife Carol, along with Maggie and Sherma from Serenity Tours picked us up at the entrance to our resort and we were off for a great night. I would highly recommend going to the Friday Night Jump Up if you get a chance. Do not let anyone try to tell you it is dangerous or anything like that. Just use common sense and you will have a great time. We ate a great dinner of fresh fish that was caught that same day and had just come in off the boats. There were plenty of vendors and plenty of food and drink and dancing and fun all around. It was a great time! John, Carol, Maggie, and Sherma made us feel like family.

We also did another tour with Serenity and that was a private zip line adventure. My wife and I had never zip lined before and this was a great way to explore the rain forest and have a blast zip lining at the same time. This was yet another great tour that we did with Serenity Vacations & Tours. Everything is always on time and first class.

I can hardly describe how perfect all of our tours were with Serenity. We feel like we have a new family in St. Lucia. John and Carol, Dave, Maggie, and Sherma, you were all so much fun and I cannot even express how much we appreciate the first class service you provided. The best thing is, we truly feel that we are part of the Serenity family now and we will come back and see you again one day. To anyone considering booking a vacation and/or tours with Serenity Vacations & Tours, you cannot go wrong. They are simply the best and you will find nothing but good times and first class service here.
