"The plate was absolutely perfect, we had the chicken, with some rice, shredded carrots, and squash."
Danny, our tour guide, picked my boyfriend and I up at our hotel at 9am. We weren't expecting the tour group to be just me and him even though it did say a private tour, so that was awesome! Danny's car was very clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable about the whole island and informed us of the island's educational programs, languages, politics, agriculture, etc. He also took the time to go over the itinerary for the day with us, to see if we wanted to add/ remove any stops. At each stop he took pictures for us, which was AMAZING, because it's hard to get pictures together when you're traveling alone as a couple.
We stopped at the banana plantations, the fishing villages, the Piton Mountain, the Volcano, Waterfalls, and the Botanical Gardens. What really impressed us about Danny was when after the Volcano Tour, we asked him for change for $10 US because we wanted to tip the Volcano tour guide; however, he didn't have change so he just gave us $10 EC and told us to just take it and give it to her. He never at any point asked us for the money back (we did return it to him of course).
Also, at the mud bath, he made sure he bought us the good mud to use as little soap bars (the gray mud, not the black) and didn't ask us for money then either. He really, genuinely just wanted us to have an amazing experience on this tour. It was truly impressive. In addition, Danny made sure we arrived at the mud bath and the Piton falls prior to any other tour group.
We had both places to ourselves. It was awesome. Lastly, we enjoyed lunch at Fedo's. Danny placed the order prior to us arriving so it was ready when we arrived. The plate was absolutely perfect, we had the chicken, with some rice, shredded carrots, and squash.
We would definitely recommend Real St. Lucia Tours and Danny to anyone visiting St. Lucia! You learn and experience so much! Thank you Danny for making our vacation very memorable and sending us home with awesome pictures, experiences, and knowledge!
