Island Tour of a lifetime!
, May 2020
This was an amazing tour and excellent value for money. We were picked up in a private and very nice air conditioned car for a tour of the island. Our tour guide Julian was amazing from start to finish. He took us all over the island on this half day tour to see the highlights and he let us customise as we wished. We stopped off at many places including Morne Fortune Bay, The Tet Paul Nature Trail where we had our own guide for a small fee. This was absolutely beautiful and offered great views of the Pitons. It was a moderate walk/hike not difficult and could be done in flat shoes, no trainers needed at all. We also visited Soufriere and the Volcano where we had an amazing guide to show us round and talk to us about the volcano. We also visited the Diamond Botanical Garden with the stunning waterfall where we had the option to take a refreshing dip, this place was well worth a visit. This is a great way to see the highlights of Saint Lucia in half a day. We never felt rushed, it felt like we were sightseeing with an old friend. We were well taken care of and nothing was too much trouble for Julian, he helped us get some fantastic photos. He was a very knowledgeable guide whilst making the tour fun and was happy to answer any questions we had. I am so glad we chose to do this tour and I cannot recommend this tour and Julian enough, simply the best. If you book this tour you will leave with the best memories of Saint Lucia and its amazing, friendly people as we did. Please don't leave Saint Lucia without seeing the island, so much to see and do here apart from the beautiful beaches and hotels.
Good tour

I enjoyed myself on this tour and appreciated A-List going out of the way to accommodate my tight schedule. Keep it up.

We hired a private car and it was ideal. They picked up up promptly at the pier and tailored our tour to meet our interest. We had a great guide....very entertaining and informative. The views of the Pitons and tour of the botanical gardens were the highlights. Good Job!

We had a private tour on Monday 07/15/2019 with the taxi/guide named Julian. He was excellent, very informative, pleasant, and cordial. He let us take our time and we were not rushed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. WE were also in a private car, a BMW in fact. We weren't in some packed van or bus which we have experienced on some other tours with different companies The BEST TOUR

Excellent tour!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our tour of St. Lucia! Our tour guide was Julian and he did a great job of showing us this beautiful island. The vehicle was clean and Julian was very professional. He was also very knowledgeable and personable!! We highly recommend this tour!

, May 2018
I can't recommend this tour enough. I was quite anxious as it was a gift for my mum's birthday and it was our 1st time visiting St. Lucia where her dad is from so wanted her to see where he was from. Our driver Jason arrived to collect us in a people carrier, I was slightly disappointed after reading other reviews I was hoping for an exec car. How glad I was that it wasn't! the vehicle was brand new and we had 2 spacious and comfortable seats with lovely large windows and armrests. as it was a high vehicle we got some spectacular views! there were lots of cold drinks available on board. Jason's knowledge was fantastic and he went out of his way to ensure my mum saw as much of the real St. Lucia as possible, even letting her chat to some locals. He escorted us on a wonderful tour of the botanical gardens and his plant knowledge was exceptional. He kindly took us on a detour down the road my granddad was born and invited me to stand on the seat with my head out of the sunroof so I could video the whole street as a wonderful keepsake for my mum. The entire day was a dream for us and if you get the chance, do book! this was in conjunction with A-list travel. Top marks!!

Winnie was amazing...I cannot recommend him enough. From the time he picked us up from the terminal (easy to spot with our name) to dropping us off...he was very professional and knowledgable about the island. Views were fantastic and awe-inspiring. We would definitely do a different tour with him.

A wonderful tour with a fantastic guide and driver. We were picked up in a BMX 735 in fantastic shape and treated royally/ Cool towels, Cold water and more information than we could remember. We saw just about everything available to see and were never rushed. I highlight of the tour was a stop at a famous hotel that made us yearn to go back and stay there someday. The LASERA Resort. We cannot say enough about the tour. Several stops at quant huts to see island wares but never ant pressure to buy. Drove right up to within 100 feet of the volcano that was still spewing sulphuric steam after all these years. If you want to see this island We cannot think of a better choice.

Our driver was super nice, greeted us at the pier and whisked us off. He knew the island fairly well, the history, religion, politics, etc.. The car was a black Subaru SUV - very clean and seemed new. He took us to an outlook to view the port and city below, drove by the head honchos place, went to the Bounty Rum distillery, Diamond Waterfall and gardens, and even stopped at a banana plantation on the side of the road. We then drove to Soufriere to see the Pitons and have lunch. I will only say that we suggested three or four places for lunch that we had investigated before arriving and he said that one or two were on the way but we never went there and no reason was given. We assumed time was the issue and getting us back to port but when I looked on the map, one place was just beyond where we stopped for lunch. I would say the restaurants we chose were 5 star places and the place we ended up at was at best 3 stars. We wanted a place with a view of the Pitons or on the beach - the place we ended up at was a view of the bay. We should have been more forward with saying that the restaurant location was a critically high item on our to-do list but we also wanted it to be his choice as to where he brought us - but it should have been a place that was on our list, not his.

So glad I did this private tour of St Lucia! My guide Thomas was very friendly and answered all my questions about St Lucia. He showed me the best spots to see and take photos of the Pitons (and took many of me for me as well :)) but my favorite stop was for the Cassava bread straight from the oven!

Got a phone call at 10.15 pm the night before our tour after 2 emails to viator to confirm pick up time. We were informed we could not do a private tour as they only had one driver. We only visited 3 places - the botanical gardens, the volcano and we drove through Soufriere. Not worth the money.

it wasn't private. Specifically ask before I booked that , this tour is it just us and the driver? they emailed me back , yes, but another costumer showed up as well. We post to get rum and bread sample, either one was offered. When I asked the driver, he stopped and purchased some coconut bread. The driver made comment to the ladies who walked by. Safe driving.

We were collected by our driver in a pristine vehicle in which he provided cold drinks, a snack and cold towels. His knowledge of the island was second to none and his service 100. He exceeded the time allowed for the tour to our advantage and he could not be faulted in any way. Highly recommended.

, Jan 2017
Despite the good reviews read on Viator, the tour wasn't so great as expected. Nothing to say about St.Lucia, which is worth to visit especially the volcano area, but we were not happy with our guide. We were the one continuously asking questions, whereas we were expecting to be described the particularities and curiosities of the island. Maybe, being the 27th December a bank holiday, our guide was substituting someone else more professional...
This should have been a good tour...
, Dec 2016
This should have been a good tour but we had a poor guide. He came to our resort and apparently waited for us for an hour. He was standing in front of us but had no ID badge so we assumed that he worked at the resort. When we finally started out, he talked about being a taxi driver. Yes he was a good taxi driver, but a very inadequate tour guide. He seemed inexperienced and untrained. Nonetheless, he was a very nice person

Island is beautiful. Souffiere volcano and botanical gardens were highlights of the tour. Driver was courteous and provided lots of good information about St. Lucia. Unfortunately A-list tours chose to charge for items listed as inclusions in the tour description. They said anything listed between brackets was not included even though they were clearly listed under inclusions. Be sure to double check this before booking.

We were greeted at the dock by Julian, who had a plaque with our name. We were given a private tour in a BMW that was super clean, well-maintained, and Julian was an excellent driver and a totally knowledgeable tour guide. We were made to feel like family and this was totally informal. The volcano, the gardens, Soufriere, etc were all toured and this was the favorite part of our cruise. The Pitons were magnificent.
