We were collected from our resort and taken into St Johns to meet up with the other passengers. Our excellent guide Sowunde was very knowledgeable regarding the island, stopping at various places on route to describe the local area and fruit. We were driven off road at times which was a lot of fun and following a guided tour of... More

We took the SUV Gold tour which was in an air conditioned vehicle complete with drinks in the boot for refreshments at any time during the tour. As this was only $5US more than the open vehicle we thought this an excellent option. We started our tour from St John's with an impromptu call at the old Recreation Ground which... More

The four of us had the SUV on the Safari Gold tour to ourselves. Jimmy asked what we wanted to see. He was very knowledgeable about Antigua and its history. He customized the tour to what we wanted to see. I would agree with everything Cricketman_10 had to say.

We took the Safari Gold tour. The average rating isn't intended to reflect that it was bad. It was OK, but just OK. A large part of it just being OK is that we realised that there isn't a great deal to see on Antigua. We did all the sights, but there wasn't a great deal to look at at... More

Right from moment we were picked up from our hotel at 8.45am and from start to finish our tour guide and driver was amazing. His knowledge, pride, and patriotism of Antigua made for a very interesting and fun trip. The first stop was fort Barrington we were up and within the hour it was not a stroll more of a... More

This shore excursion was booked through Royal Caribbean so we naturally expected an average or above experience. What we received was a ride in the back of a very old Land Rover which smoked considerably and offered a bumpy ride even when we were off road. The tour was mediocre and we wish we knew about the beach stop because... More

We booked a gold SUV tour of the island. Jimi Hendrix (Kendrick) was our guide for the day and he really knew his stuff! He is a professional😊, very knowledgable about the island, its history, plants and people. He was extremely flexible in customizing the day to our interests. We made several additional stops along the way. Kendrick made the... More

We booked the Gold Safari via our Virgin rep for US$100 per person (booked at a hotel near St John's). The Gold version uses a 4x4 vehicle rather than the open jeep but I believe the tour is much the same. We were joined by a couple from a cruise ship and on meeting them we were able to agree...

I love land rovers so for me this should have been a great off road trip however here was no "off roading". The trip around the island was good although it was rushed with only a 15-20 minute stop at each place. Our driver did offer to deviate from the beach and take us through the rainforest (normal road) so... More
