Thank you so much for the wonderful service your drivers provided us both on our arrival & departure to beautiful St. Lucia. We originally thought about stopping at the Castries market on our way back to the airport, but ruled it out because we didn’t want to have to drag our luggage around with us & didn’t think it would be safe to leave it with a driver.
Once we arrived in St Lucia & had Henry drive us to our hotel, stopping along the way for amazing views & warm bread, I knew I would feel comfortable asking if a driver could stop on our way back to the airport. I just knew that no matter who it was, it would be someone trustworthy and reliable.
I just assumed he would wait in the car for us. What I didn’t expect was that he would accompany us throughout the market , showing us around & giving us tips along the way. I would definitely use your company again & will recommend you to anyone going to St. Lucia.
Janus, good day. Your most beautiful island I have ever seen. I have traveled the world but you have everything right here in your own backyard. Wow.
We love it. Eyan was a very friendly and responsible driver. We really liked him.
The car was clean and he was on time. He told us about the island and the life here. We appreciated all the information.
Airport to The Body Holiday. Ewan met us on arrival, clearly waiting with our names and reservation code. He was excellent, suggested we freshen up, bought us some water and a snack and drove us to The Body Holiday in a very comfortable car with air conditioning.
He drove very well. On the journey he told us, unprompted, about St Lucia, the plantations, the towns and was really informative. We stopped off to try some bread with cheese, which was delicious and complimentary. Great start to the holiday. 10/10.
Anse Chastanet to the airport. Cornell picked us up promptly in a fabulous car, very suitable for the road out of the resort, clean, smart and with Air conditioning. He was polite and informative. He drove well and told us all about the Independence day celebrations that had happened earlier in the week, he was helpful with our bags and got us to the airport in good time . 10/10
I would definitely recommend your company for anyone wanting transportation and transfers in St Lucia. I would even recommend the tour as can imagine with the right guide this would be excellent,
My wife and I spent our anniversary in St Lucia, after booking our trip we realized we had no airport transport. I contacted Elma and Janus and actually saved money over what cheap Caribbean offered and got a private ride. Well all said and done I can't say enough good things about this company.
Clean and friendly drivers willing to show and teach you what they can about their island, and happy to stop anytime, anywhere you want for pics or just check something out.
Thank you much for making my trip to and from our resort the best part of our transit. And a very nice beginning and end for our vacation.
We had a wonderful time!!! In our group of four, only two of us made it to the top. It was very strenuous terrain, but it was still so much fun. The guide (Katia) was so patient and kind.
Our driver was professional and shared such interesting information about the area, local ecology and more. He stopped to take us to a waterfall, an eatery and scenic overlooks.
Everything was so enjoyable. Thank you for a great time!Thanks again!
We booked Real St. Lucia Tours to hike Gros Piton. Our driver, Randall, showed up promptly and was very informative and friendly. Along the way to the excursion, he made a couple of stops for excellent photo opportunities and provided information about the island. When we arrived at Gros Piton, our arrangements for the hike were all taken care of by Real St. Lucia Tours.
The hike was amazing and very rewarding! The view was well worth the challenge. On the return trip to our resort, Randall had local fruit ready for us to try. What a nice touch! And what a fantastic guide!
Thank you, Randall! I would recommend Real St. Lucia Tours to my friends and family and we will use them again when we return to the wonderful island of St. Lucia!-
“I was originally concerned about safety with my two young kids (going to a foreign country is scary enough let alone having someone else drive us who we don’t know), but he was very trustworthy and dependable”
First, THANK YOU for your professionalism, friendliness and timely responses to my emails.
When we booked you last Saturday we were in a REAL predicament. To the point where we almost cancelled our entire trip due to travel problems. I was terribly worried about not having a transfer from the airport that was originally promised by our package but you came through and I think it is thanks to experiences with your company that we will continue to try for a private charter for all of our future family vacations.
The driver who picked us up from the airport (I apologize – I forgot his name) was fantastic. It was very late at night and he waited for us – and though I was originally concerned about safety with my two young kids (going to a foreign country is scary enough let alone having someone else drive us who we don’t know), but he was very trustworthy and dependable – more so than most cab drivers we find in Toronto, Canada.
Isaac, our tour guide for our Thursday excursion with my family along with Steve and Debbie Baran was also exceptionally good. He was friendly and was very good with my kids when they were less than happy. He explained things very well and answered all of our questions. He deserves strong recognition for being patient, kind and understanding. He defines customer service.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A++++! J
“We can only vouch for our guide who was exceptional, but by the reviews, it sounds like there are quite a few associated with this company who are just as dedicated and passionate about their customers' enjoyment”
With your email assistance, my wife and I arranged a private tour of St. Lucia for Wednesday, February 11, 2015. We initially learned of Real St. Lucia Tours by reading various online posts at Cruise Critic. Since this was our first Caribbean cruise, we wanted to do what we could in advance to ensure a great vacation.
Just as your instructions had indicated, our guide was patiently standing by the Tourist Information Centre with our name on a placard; he was joined by quite a large number of other tour guides and so forth. We soon learned his name was Hygenus and by the end of the day both Sharon and I had grown very fond of him.
We walked about ten minutes to get to a very comfortable automobile (I think it was a Toyota Crown Majesta) which would be our day's mode of transportation. This was quite nice given that the day before we were squeezed into a small van with two other couples for a day's tour of Antigua. Given the hilly terrain of St. Lucia and it's many switchbacks, we felt much more comfortable and safer in this vehicle!
Hygenus was keen to ensure we were able to see what we wanted to see and do what we wanted to do while visiting this beautiful island. He carefully plotted what we could accomplish given the time constraints imposed by the cruise ship's departure time. I am a license plate collector and I told Hygenus that I really wanted to try and locate a St. Lucia plate for my collection. He took steps early on so that this objective would be accomplished (unlike my day before in Antigua).
Touring in a sedan as part of a private tour has its privileges: we were typically able to arrive at the popular tourist destinations in advance of the vans and buses. Such was the case as we made our way to the famous volcano pools stopping along the way to experience banana ketchup, holding a python snake and snapping some photos of the Pitons. At the pools, Hygenus was a great host instructing me on what I needed to do to get the most out of the experience. He made sure to get into the perfect spot to take our photograph. Later, he arranged for a mini tour of the botanical gardens with his mother given that we were running short of time.
St. Lucia was our favorite island of those we visited on this trip; to be sure it is a very beautiful place! That said, our time visiting St. Lucia was made all the more special because of our amazing guide Hygenus. He was polite, friendly, calm, knowledgeable and we knew he had our back! Throughout the day, many people we met seemed to know Hygenus and they would tell us how special he was and that we were lucky to have him as our guide. Initially, our reaction was skeptical but by the end of the day we could see the reasons for the accolades.
Thanks again for this tour. We would not hesitate to recommend Real St. Lucia Tours to anybody considering a visit to St. Lucia. We can only vouch for our guide who was exceptional, but by the reviews, it sounds like there are quite a few associated with this company who are just as dedicated and passionate about their customers' enjoyment.
Please be sure to pass this along to Hygenus along with our best wishes and thanks! By the way, the St. Lucia license plate is my favorite memento of our Caribbean cruise ; great memories of the day too.

"My trip to St. Lucia began and ended with excellence, for my pick up and drop off to the airport were superb"
My trip to St. Lucia began and ended with excellence, for my pick up and drop off to the airport were superb. Both drivers were professional and friendly and really made my trip to the island wonderful.
Next time I come to the island, I will be sure to book my travel with this company because I couldn't imagine experiencing anything less than the absolute best.
"We have since recommended Janus and his company to friends who will be returning to St Lucia in the next few months"
We booked our airport and hotel transfers with Janus at Isle Lander following a recommendation from the UK. Janus responded to my emails within minutes and this made the booking process quick and easy. The cost of 3 journeys was cheaper than other competitors we tried and nothing was paid until each journey was complete. The cars were always clean and well presented (Lexus and Toyota Crown).
Our drivers arrived exactly on time, were polite and courteous, drove safely and even provided bottled water on the longer journeys we took. We have since recommended Janus and his company to friends who will be returning to St Lucia in the next few months.
