The 99 stairs are actually 103! I guess they didn't know how to count back then :-). When cruising off you can walk toward the stairs in 25 minutes on a beautiful hike ( almost no climbing). The stairs themselves are nice and in the shade because it can be very hot and humid in st Thomas.

At first we were skeptical and undecided because we knew all the drivers were "trying to make their money", but Dahwuud sold himself and took our family on VERY informative and scenic tour of the US Virgin Islands. SUPERB!

Dawood was a fantastic tour guide with a deep knowledge of the history of the island of St Thomas and it's natural wonders. He arrived on time at our timeshare and handed us much appreciated cold water bottles! As the open air bus rolled along he would point out vegetation and views. We stopped for a light lunch and enjoyed... More

We booked this tour online. Eric was right on time to meet us on the pier. I was seeing the ships's doc at the time and my wife went to tell him that we would have to cancel. He graciously waited 45 minutes for us to finish with the doc and off we went. I have a hernia so my... More

The Hospitality was incredible, this Tour gave me something I will remember for the rest of my life! Thank you CHT

Dawuud is extremely knowledgeable of the history of St Thomas and also of its plant life. You could feel his excitement as he showed us the various plants and trees and explained their beneficial properties. He had us eating "stinking toes" and liking them. It was an enjoyable tour of St Thomas, and we highly recommend it.

DaWood gave us an exceptional tour of St. Thomas in his open air taxi. He was very knowledgeable about plants, etc. & the history of the area. His vehicle was well maintained & we appreciate that. He was very helpful & accommodating & we would definitely have him again. A hard-working gentleman, a good man. Thank You!

our guide, Dawuud, provided a private tour twice for my sister, a friend, and me while on this beautiful island. We tasted new fruits, smelled the aromas of the leaves and bark of numerous tropical plants; we learned the history of the populations, the government and the industries that provided for this area. It was wonderful. He made this a... More

We had a very nice time on the tour! My Brother and I were able to shop at the one place we wanted to go to. The Historical Tour II was comfortable and convenient because we could stay on board and see everything. A quick stop to the beach was nice so I could go in the water.

Then the tour guide was 20 mins late to pick us up with no communication. When we called the contact person on the form they told us he was running late from picking ppl... More
