I booked this taxi service from the internet, and proved to be excellent. Many thanks for the taxi transfers, the system works. Both drivers were extremely pleasant, punctual, and good company for the journey. We chatted away for both journeys, they both were very informative and interesting. Please send many thanks to them both.
I would recommend this company if you need a transfer, our was from airport to Rodney Bay. It was all organised with no effort, and saved the hassle of organising on arrival or by hotel. Hope all goes well for you r taxi company in the future.
Now he’s sent me the LONGEST trip review I’ve received in my 30 years in the business…..6 pages long!! Omg!
Hello Janus and Isaac,
From Mr. Gagliardi (this is the client who had sent a short review recently)…. Now he’s sent me the LONGEST trip review I’ve received in my 30 years in the business…..6 pages long!! Omg!
Below is an excerpt from his review:
The second island was St Lucia, and as I said before this was a huge highlight of our trip. Isaac was waiting outside the terminal even before the scheduled time, so we had an early start. He was friendly and talkative, able to tell stories and history of the various places we visited. We really wanted to see something local and authentic, and also specifically the Pitons, so we concentrated on the south side of the island. We were not sure about the volcano, having read mixed reviews, but he talked us into it and we are glad. It was more interesting to watch than I expected, and was worth the trip. He took us to a short lookout hike to see the pitons (Tet Paul) and I doubt that there was a better view available. I was skeptical about the entry fee, but the views really were spectacular.
We packed so much into this one day, seeing so many of the island highlights that we had read about that it was like 2-3 tours. The only place that was a bit of a problem was the botanical gardens; the waterfall was nice, the plants interesting, but we got there later in the day and it was too crowded with the bus tours from the boat. Every other spot he took us, we felt like we were ahead of all the crowds. Not sure if it was true, but going to these spots with Isaac made us feel like we were getting special treatment from the people there.
They all knew him, and I think treated us better, or gave us a better experience because of being on his private tour. As an example, at the volcano the guide encouraged us to climb down by the river to test the water temperature, I didn't see anyone else go down there at all.
And in the more shady spots we felt that he was shielding us from the aggressive trinket selling locals. We are really thankful that you arranged that Real St Lucia tour for us, it really was special.
Great job, Isaac, I knew you’d be great and not disappoint….will be sending more clients your way J
My family and I had a safe trip home from St. Lucia. I did want to contact you and let you know we appreciate the professionalism you showed arranging our airport transfers. The feedback we got regarding you from our two drivers is that you work nonstop and seem to never sleep! I always received a quick response from you when I had inquiries by email.
Thank you for helping us have a stress free beginning and end to our island trip. Loretta drove us to the airport our last day. We enjoyed our conversations. Loretta is well spoken, happy and a good driver. After she dropped us, I realized we should have tipped her more than we did...so I thought I would give you our positive feedback because Loretta deserves a 5 star!
Thanks again, Janus. We will recommend you and your company to anyone we talk with who is traveling to St. Lucia. The island is naturally beautiful and the locals are genuine, kind people. You have a successful business that seems to be working very well. We wish you the all the best in 2016!
"Is this legit? Can I trust this? Especially if you're staying at a resort (we were staying at Sandals), the resort warns you not to go with outside companies"
I know when many people travel to another country, they wonder first and foremost. Is this legit? Can I trust this? Especially if you're staying at a resort (we were staying at Sandals), the resort warns you not to go with outside companies.
Real St. Lucia Tours was awesome! Their customer service people via email were very responsive (I didn't have phone access so email was how I got in touch). They scheduled a driver to come and pick us up, take us to the hike, and bring us back (with a short stop for food afterward). All included in their original cost!
Now, I will say if you are staying at the north side of the island, the only thing which kinda sucks is the drive (boy is it windy). This is not their fault though. The driver they sent us (Cyrus) was friendly, funny, and attentive! We got hooked up with a great guide at the base of the mountain. We were up and down in 3.5 hours.
highly recommend Real St. Lucia Tours if you are planning a hiking trip to any of the 3 mountains. They were awesome!
"St Lucia and the tour with Isaac was a huge highlight and probably our favorite and most memorable experience"
“Overall, Melissa and I really enjoyed our cruise. St Lucia and the tour with Isaac was a huge highlight and probably our favorite and most memorable experience. It was expensive (all the attractions charge quite a lot for entry...) but really worth it.
It set the bar too high for the rest of the islands.”
I would give you and Richard 5 stars out of 5 stars. Our tour was exciting, informative, fun, customized to what we wanted to do and if there is a place to sample food and drink and the people of the Island Richard found it for us. We had a great time taking Selfies and Richard had the perfect long arms to do so.
This is what a private tour is suppose to be and I would highly recommend it to all.
Unique to the general tour Richard got to places when there were no lage bus loads when we did get to the Chocolate factory and there was a bus load, Richard had us wait till they were gone and we got a private tour of the plantation and factory. This was special.
We had many good laughs with Richard and he having time in the US was dealing with perfect English.. I would highly recommend your tour, for excellent contents and Professional Guides.
Hi Janus We had a great time in beautiful St. Lucia . We are really impressed with the people you have at your disposal.
Jason was truly great at giving us a tour, so personable & caring in giving us all His insights on all the places He took us .
Tell him hi from us. Also young Sam is great .
We will surely mention your service to anyone you is looking for a great time in St. Lucia . We did have a little mix up with Richard on payment on return to airport .
Hopefully it got squired away

We have just arrived home with many great memories & stories to tell!
We are so happy to say we are extremely pleased with our Shared Cruise Tour of St. Lucia. What a beautiful island! We thoroughly enjoyed all the scenic sights, as well as seeing the Pitons and visiting the banana plantation, tasting homemade Cassava and touring the botanical gardens & sulfur springs. Lunch was delicious and the mud bath experience was a lot of fun! Everything was perfect!
Please extend many thanks to our excellent driver, Hyginus, for taking our pictures and for all the local knowledge he shared with us during the day! He is a great asset to your Company.
If we return to St. Lucia in the future we will certainly be in touch. In the meantime we will be happy to recommend Real St. Lucia Tours to our friends and family. Thanks again!

Good morning Elma,
We had a fantastic experience which having gone on other tours we know is because of your company. Our driver arrived early on the morning of the hike and knew both of our names.
He was vibrant informative warm engaging and professional. He in large part made our trip. The hike was challenging but beautiful. I can't say enough about your company's level of organization and professionalism.
Again much of the day was made by the driver so please thank him for us!
We would recommend you to anyone touring St. Lucia.
I absolutely loved it. From the ride to the hike. James the driver was a sweetheart. Not only he was funny but he took the time to answer my questions and give me the best advice about St Lucia.
Thank you James!!! Also Kevin my guide was very, well I must say extremely patient with me. I took breaks every five minutes and he was not annoyed, on the contrary, he was encouraging me.
