This tour is highly recommended. While it is perhaps a touch pricier than other options, it is a great value and a lot of fun while being informative and educational too. You do and see A LOT in a 6-7 hour window, without feeling like you're rushing. It is a great way to see the western side of the island in one day. Dannyboy is fantastic and is genuinely interested in making sure you get the most out of your day. He is also a very skilled driver and expert pothole dodger, which is important in a place like St Lucia! This is the definition of experiences being more valuable than money. Do it.
