After being canceled on at the last minute from another tour company I was scrambling to find a tour for the next morning. Luckily I was able to find Dannyboy. He called me the next morning because my booking was last minute and someone else was already booked. But he was still able to accommodate me and I was extremely grateful. It was my last day in Saint Lucia and I needed to see these sites. The tour was great. I feel like I learned so much. I got to do all the things I needed to do and then someone. Dannyboy was full of energy and information. It was a great day.

Good price, prompt pick up and very interesting distillery tour. Tasting experiece was 12 different rums or rum based products which you poured yourself. No problem trying something more than once. Samuel our driver was also our amazing tour guide and we learnt a lot about the island. Ample time for shopping in Castries on the way back. One of the best tours I have had during my 14 visits to the beautiful island of St Lucia. Thank you.

You essentially hit up some of the island's top landmarks with a guide who is extremely welcoming, very knowledgable, & witty - there's nothing better! I thoroughly enjoyed myself & would highly recommend.
