Taxi Love was a great tour guide. The pickup time was a little unorganized but he accommodated me and made up for it throughout the day. I met some great people on the tour and the banana daiquiri was truly the best. I seen parts of St. Thomas and learned a lot. We went to Sapphire beach and it was beautiful.

Taxi Love Tour Guide!
, Nov 2021
Taxi Love our driver made the trip memorable. The tour and beach were great. The shopping was OK, not many choices, 90% jewelry stores.
Hard Pass
, Nov 2021
Would suggest a hard pass on this excursion. Our tour operator picked us up at the hotel which was great. He took us into town and left us to shop Main St while he picked up another group. 99% of the shops on Main St are jewelry stores and merchants are very aggressive for business. When we started the tour I expected to learn about the history of the island. There wasn't much of that. Instead the tour operator blasted music and sang along. When we reached the mountain Top we had 20 min to browse in a gift shop and quickly have the famous banana daiquiri before heading back. The trip down was frightening! The driver was reckless and went way too fast for the conditions. He dropped some to a beach and then took us back to our hotel. I honestly couldn't wait to get our of the truck. We traveled everywhere using local taxis and everyone else was great. I would suggest just taking a taxi into town to shop and another to the mountain Top. It is the same price and your on your own schedule.

Thanks for your feedback. It seems like your day started not going too well with your experience downtown shopping with the merchants etc. And that just put you in a certain mind frame for the day. We strive to provide the best service on our tour. Playing music has been a part of our tour for a while and many enjoy it. Ar each stop the driver gives a briefing of the history and overview of the Lookout spot and island . We hope that you did enjoy your vacation. All the best

St. Thomas
, Sep 2019
Overall the tour was good and informative. The only complaint is that they took us shopping to the market and almost everything was still closed.
Great guide just wasn’t our thing
, Aug 2019
Dennis the tour guide was great. This tour just wasn’t my husband and mine thing. A lot of shopping and beach which we wanted to experience it but just wasn’t our cup of tea.

Second time taking a Liston tour, third time on the Island. Beautiful place, good tour. The one tip I would offer is that the earlier your pickup time, the more time you will spend shopping. Not interested in shopping, skip it and pick the latest pickup time.
