Full description
Enjoy a 4.5-hour circular tour of the French and Dutch sides of St. Maarten (St.Martin), and experience a true Caribbean welcome. You will drive northeast to Dawn Beach and Oyster Bay, crossing one of the symbolic borders before stopping at Corilita Natural Reserve for breathtaking views of the tropical wilderness. Continue to the viewpoint overlooking Orient Beach. Then, relax on one of the most serene beaches at Grand Case. Stroll along a pure white shore, or swim in the turquoise waters. Grand Case is the Caribbean’s gourmet capital, and you’ll find a diverse selection of local cuisine for lunch. Try some scrumptious Johnny Cake - a fried cornmeal pancake - or other traditional dishes. Now it’s time to shop in Marigot, the charming capital of St. Martin, where a lovely French atmosphere unfurls along colonial streets and the open-air bazaar. Next, explore the upscale area of Lowland, crossing another border back to the Dutch side to reach Maho Beach. Watch as the jumbo jets fly low over the sand to land at Princess Juliana International Airport. Your tour ends with a drive past Simpson Bay, stopping at Cole Bay Hill for one last picturesque view. If you wish, you can be dropped off in Philipsburg to explore on your own, instead of returning to the port.

Nice small group of 12 people. Humprey who was the driver and the guide made the tour! Very knowledgeable and good natured and funny. We had so much fun doing this tour. Even was flexible with the times as we as a group wanted more time in Marigot. Tour was even an hour longer than advertised. All in all was absolutely fantastic.

Eine sehr schöne Tour mit Chevin als Fahrer und Guide. Es hat wirklich Spaß gemacht. Die vielen Punkte nach Plan (Beschreibung) hat er gut und sicher angefahren und ganz viel über Land, Leute und Besonderheiten erzählt. Mit seiner netten und sympathischen Art hat er viel zum Gelingen beigetragen. Die Tour selbst war prima geplant, nicht zuviel Zeit im Bus und ausreichend Zeit an den Locations. 5 Sterne - gerne !

Man konnte auf der Inseltour einen schönen Gesamteindruck über die Insel bekommen. Der Fahrer war gut und humorvoll. Der Stopp am Orient-Beach und am Maho-Beach war zeitlich passend. Der Mittagsaufenthalt in Marigot zu lange. Insgesamt aber alles i.O. Verbessert werden sollte die Kommunikation zum Treffpunkt. Angegeben wurde die Adresse der Agentur, tatsächlich war es jedoch im Hafenterminal...hätte uns einen "Morgenspaziergang" von rd. 40 Min. erspart.
