Customer reviews:

One of the best tours ever! From the time Olivier picked us up at the cruise terminal until our return we were treated so well. From the easy to understand narration, to his excellent driving, interesting stops, setting a good but relaxing pace it was a wonderful day. Death in Paradise was a bucket list item and did not disappoint. Having lunch at Katherine's Bar was a highlight. The botanical gardens were so beautiful and the icing on the cake for our fabulous day.

"This was simply the best, most professional, and most comfortable shore excursion we have experienced in the Caribbean, bar none. Cruise ship guests will find this much more enjoyable than riding in a large tour bus with too many people, and in our case, it cost less. Olivier was the perfect guide and ambassador for Guadeloupe!"
