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
