Date: Dec 23/17

This is a great way to hit many of the highlights of St. Thomas at your own pace and without the annoyances of the large tour groups. David got us to all of the best viewing spots and had lots of stories to complement the tour. We even had other people asking to join our private tour! We could have done without the tourist trap options like the donkey pictures but all in all had a great day. The best part was David's suggestion to go to Coki Beach for snorkeling - lots of fish to see!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking your time out and posting this positive review! Being born and raised on the island and mostly outdoors has given me the opportunity to talk about local stuff that is had to match. Glad you all enjoyed it!

David did a very good job. He was a local and took us all around the island as best he could. This was his first trip since the big storm and many things were not yet back to where it was. I would still like to thank David for trying as hard as he could to do the best he could under the extreme circumstances.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bob for taking your time out and posting this positive review! This means a lot to me! It was a honor showing you and your family my beautiful island etc...tell everyone I say hello!

We had a great tour with David! He took us around the whole island and was very knowledgeable about the history of the island. He even recommended a great little Caribbean restaurant for lunch. We would definitely recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Karen for taking your time out and posting this FIVE STAR review! For anyone that is hesitant about booking please note that St. Thomas is still beautiful despite 2 hurricanes and I’m ready for buisness. No one will be disappointed booking my tours. Thanks again and tell everyone I said hello!

We had a group of 16 (8 adults and 8 kids) and the day could not have gone any better. David led us to some amazing spots and his local knowledge kept us ahead of the crowds. I would certainly use David again! Plus A/C and cold water made a difference.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks! Thanks! For the 5 Star review! Glad everyone enjoyed every minute! Something for everyone!

David is the BEST personality ++++. Our tour was top notch from start to finish. David was born in St. Thomas so his knowledge of the Island is interesting from start to finish. He stops for pictures, takes your pictures, his knowledge is endless. Made our day in St. Thomas a memorable one, went above and beyond. Do not hesitate to book a tour with David he is extremely good at what he does you will enjoy your tour tremendously.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dorothy for the 5 star review!!!! It was a honor and pleasure spending this day with you and your family! It's ashamed how many people comes to St. Thomas but are not really getting to see the island from a local!! St. Thomas has so much to see and offer!!! More than the docks or hotels can offer! Thanks again! God bless!

David met our cruise ship & we ended up having a day we will never forget. He combined the great views of St. Thomas, the history of Charlotte Amalie & took us to a special request so that we could canopy zip-line. We had a wonderful lunch of traditional food at Trenchtown Rock. The scenic stops David offered provided some of the best views we had ever seen in the Caribbean. David is a great ambassador for his home town sharing his historical knowledge & love for St. Thomas with great attitude & energy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle King: Thanks for taking your time out and posting this 5 star review! This means a lot to me! St. Thomas is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world! Having a private tour and guide waiting for you on the crowded docks with a sign is the only way to go! St. Thomas also has a lot to offer than many other islands...like bueatiful vistas, shopping, historical sights, bueatiful beaches etc..anyone coming on a cruise this is definitely the only way to go!!!Thanks again! God Bless!

David was an amazing tour guide. We had 2 kids with us and he kept them entertained. He took us to all the great spots for photos and told us a lot of information about the island. Then he took us to Coki Beach and we had a great time there. He provided us with cold water too. He got us back to the ship on time and dropped us off right at the ship. He made our whole day in St. Thomas wonderful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jane for the 5 star review! It was a honor and joy showing you and your family my bueatiful island! St. Thomas has so much to offer! Thanks again for using my service! Tell everyone I said hello!

David gave us a wonderful experience on St. Thomas! His enthusiasm and energy made the day for our party of 5 (2 grandparents, a parent and a 15 and 13 year old.) He took us in a very comfortable van to the most scenic view points, to an uncrowded beach for a swim and relaxing time and to a local restaurant to try island cuisine. It was great fun and well worth the price.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sarah! It was a pleasure showing you and your family my beautiful island! David

Wow! Highly knowledgeable, David took us on a private tour of all the highlights of St. Thomas including an organic farm, top of the mountain for the best banana daquiries, downtown for an ethnic Carribean lunch, and numerous scenic views. I scheduled a sea lion experience at Coral Reef Park, but got the time wrong, so he graciously altered the tour to bring us back to Coral Reef Park at the right time. He even waited well past our tour time while I went shopping to ensure I made it back to the ship!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the 5 star review!! It was a joy and honor!

David was very accommodating. We originally planned for six passengers; however, only three of us were able to attend. I felt badly that he had gone to the effort and expense of securing a 12-passenger van for us. I was also surprised to see him maneuver the massive vehicle around the tiny streets and tight curves!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joan for the review it was a pleasure showing you all my beautiful island!

David is great! We don't like big group tours and wanted a personal tour to get to know St Thomas. We had never be to St Thomas before and we figured getting the lay of the land was the best way to start our vacation. David delivered, he picked us up at the Ritz and showed us the entire island and we had a blast, in spite of somewhat rainy weather. He is easy to talk to and full of information. His love and pride in St Thomas is not just an advertising tag line, he is the real deal...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Scott! It was a pleasure showing you and your family my island. David
