Bernards Tours - St. Maarten We left the ship a short walk off the pier to meet our driver Jackson to begin our private tour for our group of eight. We made several stops along the coast for photos on our way to the beach break as Jackson provided a fine history of both Dutch and French halves of this... More

Although the "white tent" housing the tour company was a bit hard to find (there should be a representative standing outside the gate), once we found it, the process of boarding the mini-buses were pretty organized, and Bernard (he was probably the owner) was there to oversee things. Our family (5 adults) took the Shopping, Sightseeing, and Beach Tour with... More

We were a group of 12 on a Caribbean cruise with a 1 and 1/2 days stop in Sint Marrten. Our first 1/2 day was spent in Phillipsburg, we took a water taxi from the ship to the downtown which was great fun. The town is very pedestrian friendly, the shopping is excellent and there is a lovely boardwalk along... More

I did the tour with DJ and it was really worth every single dime. We had a great day, the beach at Orient is beautiful and to soak in the Ocean was a real pleasure. Marigot is a nice little town and real french. The coffee at The Devine was great. I am not so much in plane spotting but... More

We spent Friday November 11, 2016 in St. Maarten and opted to do our 5th tour with Bernards Tours. It never disappoints! We took my daughter and son in law and we were lucky enough o have DJ Dave as our guide. He was professional, friendly and most of all a lot of fun. We had a great day. Bernard's... More

We booked a private tour that included the oyster farm, iguanas, going to the French side, and Maho beach. We had a very large party 89 people. Bernard's took amazing care of our entire group. He split us into multiple buses, he had beverages for everyone on board the buses, he let us decide where we wanted to go and... More

I gave them a little ding for timeliness. We waited 40 minutes past our designated tour start time for the tour to start. One other couple was late arriving. Can you believe we had a guide named Sexy? It always brought a smile when you asked him questions...Hey, Sexy, what about this or that....! But, Sexy was good natured and... More

We pre-booked an island tour with Bernard's Tours as an excursion for a cruise. Our ship got in at 9:00 am and we were told to meet the tour guide at 9:30 am. We arrived at 9:15 and were told to wait as someone from Bernard's would be there soon. Plenty of other tours came and went but no one... More

17th November, booked our trip prior to visiting St Maarten on our cruise. We got DJ as our guide who was very nice, all drinks alcoholic and soft provided for duration of trip. DJ was very knowledgeable in a light hearted way. Explained differences in Dutch and French sides of the island, iguana stop, Marigot stop, then Maho beach to... More
