This was our first visit to St Lucia. We stayed at the Stonefield Estates in Soufriere in the shadow of the Petit Piton and just up the road from Magretoute Beach and Sugar Beach. We arrived late afternoon on a Wednesday and walked down the hill to Magretoute Beach. We were the only ones on the beach or in the... More

You can trust Simon, which is a hard thing to find while on vacation! Simon will greet you with a smile and help plan your entire trip, if you ask. The snorkeling tour and Friday night fish fry are a must!!! All three of our boat trips were with Simon. You can rest assured that his number one priority is... More

My girlfriend and I met Simon while having lunch in Soufriere. He was professional and not at all pushy or sketchy, so we agreed to pay him for a tour the next day and rides on a couple days following that. We generally had a blast, and riding in his friend Francis' motorboat to approach Sugar Beach from sea was... More

We met Simon while walking to town. He has been fabulous guiding us around the island, suggesting delicious restaurants, and answering all our questions. His knowledge and friendliness are exceptional. He knows everyone! We recommend anyone planning to come here book with Simon.

Drove to the mud springs in soufriere with my husband. Simon was there at the entrance to greet us and told us we needed a tour guide and that he will not only take us on a tour of the mud baths and the volcano but he would take us to a nearby waterfall and botanical gardens and lead us... More

Though we did not take an actual tour with Simon, we ran into him several times during our trip in Soufriere. He even helped us during our first trip to the local super market (quite an overwhelming experience for 2 rural kids from the US that have never traveled before) Every time we saw him, he greeted us with a...

Simon is from the Soufriere area and everywhere we went people would call out "Simon Says". He knows everybody and knows where to go and when. We had a great experience with him and would highly recommend his service and knowledge.

Simon is a natural salesman. He approached me while we were enjoying Sugar Beach while staying at Hotel Chocolat. He recognized our black towels from the hotel and asked about our stay and then started a gentle pitch on tours. We ended up hiring Simon for a three-hour tour of the collapsed volcano where we enjoyed the hot sulphur springs... More

We joined Simon and two other couples for a morning tour of a few locations around Soufriere, and we are definitely happy that we did. Simon is incredibly knowledgable and friendly; he was eager to answer all our questions, and even a few we didn't ask! The tour started early, around 8:45am, which was great for avoiding the rush of... More
