My fiance and I recently cruised with Carnival through St. Lucia and booked this tour. Ian was a fantastic driver and tour guide, picking us up promptly from the pier and giving us great information about the island. He even brought us freshly picked bananas from his own yard.
The hike was very strenuous but beautiful. Due to our time constraint to be back at the boat, we only reached the halfway point before turning around. A note for other crusiers: the trailhead is ~1.5 hours away from the pier, and the hike is estimated to take at least 4 hours round trip, so be sure to allot as much time is possible to be able to make it to the top.
All things considered, we had an amazing experience and highly recommend this tour. Thank you again to Ian and our trail guide!
