We called only 30 minutes before our scheduled time, and were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm, and picked up close to our hotel. Due to Carnival blocking most of downtown, we were treated to a grand adventure that covered the entire island!

Carnival is an annual celebration of Africans throughout the diaspora after its initiation as an annual celebration(s) in Italy. It started in the 1850's after freedom from slavery came and were no longer forced to eat meat hence: the prefix Carni (meat), and; val (lift). The celebrations in the caribbean are no different as indicative by coinciding with Lent. More

Dawuud has a wealth of historical and local plant knowledge . His sense of humor and presentation of how the Island developed over the centuries will keep you entertained for the duration of the tour. Dawuud is very flexible and combined the Historical tour with the eco tour for our group of six. Ask to see Dawuud's art work. We've... More

Such reasonable rates for such an incredible experience. Everything on St. Thomas is so spectacular, and Dawuud made it all the better -- very knowledgeable and kind. While a little bit of a bumpy ride at times, it was easily still one of the best experiences I've had here so far!

I am so glad I booked this tour as an alternative to the cruise shore excursion offered through the cruise line. We were told to expect Eric but Dawuud showed up instead and what was supposed to be a couple of hours tour ended up being half day long. It was a combination of walking a driving, and Dawuud took...

Although we had a little bit of a delay in the morning, Dawood more than made up for it, giving us a full day tour when we had only signed up for three hours. His knowledge of history, languages, and plants is very extensive, plus-we think he knows everyone on the island of St. Thomas. We did the combination walking... More

The 99 stairs are actually 103! I guess they didn't know how to count back then :-). When cruising off you can walk toward the stairs in 25 minutes on a beautiful hike ( almost no climbing). The stairs themselves are nice and in the shade because it can be very hot and humid in st Thomas.

At first we were skeptical and undecided because we knew all the drivers were "trying to make their money", but Dahwuud sold himself and took our family on VERY informative and scenic tour of the US Virgin Islands. SUPERB!

Dawood was a fantastic tour guide with a deep knowledge of the history of the island of St Thomas and it's natural wonders.
