After some initial confusion locating Josane at the port (she had sent us an email of where to meet but because I had no Internet onboard I didn't see it) Josane was gracious, informative and accommodating regarding what we wanted to see. We knew the island would still be heavily affected by the 2017 hurricanes. If you want to know what a ruined tourist island looks like a year after serious storms, take Josane's tour. AC had trouble overcoming the heat of the day. Bring your own water.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much' You all were very kind aswell.

We had a wonderful time. She was there waiting for us when we arrived. Took us all around the island. Van was clean and air conditioned. I would recommend a better and more scenic lunch spot but everything else was wonderful. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: you're welcome!!

Josane met us at the agreed upon time, and took us to a very nice beach. She was there at the appointed time to get us back to the beach. It is nice to have not only a transport to the beach, but also have a guaranteed trip back! Good alternative to a beach break excursion through the cruise line.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you all and being your driver for the day. Regards Josane

We have used Tours by Locals many times and have been more than satisfied with our tours. We booked this tour with confidence knowing from experience that the guides were always top notch. Unfortunately we felt that for the price we paid for this tour all we got was a glorified taxi cab driver. Just drove us from one end of the island to the other, dropped us off to shop and dropped us off at the beach. Tour was to be 4 hours and we were back at the ship in 3 1/2. Very, very disappointed with our tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for leaving your valuable feedback. It is unfortunate to hear that I did not manage to meet your expectations. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconveniences you might have experiences during your tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for the rating. It was nice meeting you all

Our tour was a wonderful experience. Josane is a warm and friendly person with extensive knowledge of both the French and Dutch sides of St. Maarten. She gave us such a fabulous tour of the island that we now know of a number of the destinations. We highly recommend Josane and ToursByLocals. This has been our fourth experience with ToursByLocals - all have been outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr and Mrs Bonhag. I enjoyed touring my beautiful Island with you.

Josane met us at the port at the appointed time. Her van was clean and comfortable. She was very pleasant and accommodating. She did not offer us any water or refreshments on our tour on a very warm day. We did see most of the island; however, half the tour was for our unescorted shopping at a mall and small outdoor craft center. The tour ran slightly less than three hours. We felt the price was very steep for this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much
