Godfrey was great. This is the Tour with the best views. So much knowledge was gained and now I want to move here lol. Great experience.
Stunning views, great tour guide!

Mr Godfrey was the best tour guide! He called us early before our trip to ensure we had arrived on the island safely and can make it to the pickup location. He then suggested an even better pickup location and was very easy to reach. A+ customer service. We went all along charlotte Amalie to shop and eat local and then we went around the mountain and to the mountain top to try the legendary banana daiquiri! The souvenir shop up there was top tier - they had everything! The views were stunning and breathtaking! We then went to check out magens bay, coki beach and sapphire beach. All in all, it was a great tour and our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Would come back for sure!
Excellent tour

Godfather Tours provided an exceptional tour. He had preplanned every detail. We did everything the tour said…saw magnificent sights, shopped at best places on island and got to see some beautiful landscape. He brought drinks and snacks which was very much appreciated! We also felt confident that he would get us back to the ship early!
Change the time and then didn't meet where they said they would

The tour was supposed to start at noon. At 9:45 I received a call asking me to meet at the pier by 10:15. I rushed to dress and get there and arrived at 10:10. We were to meet by the windmill. I stayed there for 40 minutes and no one showed. The driver claimed he looked for me but he had to have just stayed in the parking lot and not come to the windmill or he would have seen me. Unreliable!
Not the best tour I've taken

First, if you are arriving in St Thomas via ship, make sure there is an understanding whether you will be picked up on local time or ship time. We assumed the time we booked for the tour would be local time - bad assumption. We had a hard time contacting the tour company in advance. The person who answered the phone was obviously busy and not helpful. Another issue we had was that the tour said a banana rum drink was included. It was not. Our group was taken to downtown to shop first for an hour. When we got back on the bus, we were joined by a dozen or so other people who had various agendas - some were going to the beach to stay. I had expected to see the tower pictured in the ad. I only got a small glimpse of it from miles away. The driver was friendly, we could understand most of what was said but the information was often repeated. We were taken to the top of the mountain where there was a small shopping mall and a lookout point. We stopped at a couple of other places to take vista pictures, then to the beach to drop off most of the passengers. Then we drove to take a couple back to their ship at a different pier across town, then drove back to our ship. All in all, we got to shop and see around the island.
Best tour on St. Thomas

Tour operator a no show! Were at pickup location early(windmill at port); asked locals sitting there. They said Godfrey wasn't there yet but showed us where to wait. No show at 10:30 am. We asked yet another local guide and he said Godfrey wasn't there yet (at 10:40 a.m.). Had to pay to visit sites on our own! Refund please.
