St. Thomas Excursions
ST. THOMAS ISLAND SIGHTSEEING TOUR
Unlike some other islands, St. Thomas has an interesting typography. This 2 hour tour includes the most scenic and historic spots of St. Thomas.
The fortifications around town, Blackbeard's Castle, Blackbeard's Hill and Old Stone Tower, were built during the 17th Century. You will also see Mafolie Hill, Louisenhof Castle, and Drake's Seat Overlook, where Sir Francis Drake was supposed to have kept watch over his fleet.
You will travel up to Mountain Top, where the views span from about 1,500 ft. above sea level. There you will see the island of St. John, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, along with the lovely and mountainous BVI chain. Stunning views of Charlotte Amalie Harbor dominate as you descend into town where you are free to shop or return to your destination.
PRIVATE ISLAND TOUR, SIGHTSEEING, SHOPPING & BEACH
Our St Thomas Island tour will give you an opportunity to see all of the highlights of this tropical paradise with stops along the way for photo opportunities, and to experience the local culture and learn about the history. Our professional certified guides and drivers will show you the best of their Island home from the comfort and safety of air conditioned vans or open safari vans.
First, you will head out of St Thomas and up a winding mountain road to an elevation of some 1,547 feet above sea level, to a famous location called “mountaintop”. Awesome views of the British Virgin Islands, and the Atlantic Ocean are what stand out here, as well as being able to see many of the beaches of St Thomas, and St John in the distance.
From here, your tour continues to “Drakes Seat” (you guessed it, Sir Francis Drake sat here all those hundreds of years before, enjoying much the same view) to enjoy even more spectacular vistas of Megan's Bay below, and the mahogany run championship golf course.
Then, its off for two hours of relaxing and swimming, at the famous Megan's Bay, ranked one of the “top 10” most beautiful in the world, according to National Geographic.
Next, you will board your van and head off towards Charlotte Amalie, along the wonderful “Skyline Drive", high above the rest of the island, with amazing views of the cruise ships, historical downtown, and neighboring islands. After all the sightseeing and beaches, its time to round off your day with some serious duty free shopping downtown.
The great thing about the trip, is that if you get tired, your driver can take you back to your ship after the sightseeing section of the tour, after the beach section or finally after the shopping.
