The tour was spontaneously booked 2 days in advance as part of a cruise. Our driver from Amigo-Tours was waiting punctually. at the agreed EDC car park, which is a 5-minute walk from the cruise terminal. We had coordinated the start directly in advance via email with Amigo-Tours. A comfortable, well air-conditioned and super clean van for 12 people awaited us 4 people. The driver Kenny responded to all our requests, showed us all the points on St. Maarten and explained a lot about the island and added interesting things. There were chilled drinks (rum punch, soft drinks) and we were able to go on a private 2-hour exploration tour in Marigot as requested. The deviations in the duration of the tour between the announcement and the execution of 1 hour were regulated by GYG in a friendly, uncomplicated and very customer-friendly manner. We were super satisfied and can fully recommend GYG and Amigo Tours. Gladly again and again :-)

This was the BEST tour of St.Maarten EVER and we have been there 10 previous times. Sunita was truly amazing. We learned more than ever. Saw things we never saw. Learned things we never knew. Saw the iguanas, both sides of the island. Visited Orient Beach. Went to Maho Beach and watched planes land overhead. By far the absolute best tour ever. And it was just our party of 7 in a great new well maintained van. Would never visit St Maarten again without a Sunita tour !! Worth every penny and then some. Fabulous service. Awesome communication from the minute we booked. Just top notch from beginning to end!!!

The most outstanding guide on the island. You can't go wrong! He is friendly, full of information on the island, and knows all the best places to go no matter what your preferences are. This guide was wonderful!

Sam, our captain, was awesome. He knew the best places to snorkel, swim and eat. We were able to swim with sea turtles! He even took photos for us. He also took us to watch the planes take off. Very cool.

We had such a great time! Our guide Sam was wonderful. The boat ride was a blast and he took us to beautiful spots all around St. Maarten. If you’re headed to St Maarten, you should book this tour!!
