St. Thomas V.I. General Tour:

2-2.5 hours

This is a world-class tour that will sometimes seem like one of our historical tour however it lacks the extensive historical information and replaces it in the two hours with a more diverse subject matter; serving ECOLOGICAL, POLITICAL, MARINE & GENERAL HISTORICAL FACTS regarding the past and current day local events, demographics, orientation. With this well-rounded informative tour, you will also enjoy the NATURE (topography) on the back roads off the beaten path in the agricultural capital on the “North-Side”. This tour is unique because we use niche market routes to maximize the island’s shoreline perspectives and demographics it also skillfully incorporates all the highlights of our other tours – a composite tour. A relaxing blend of historical, ecological, statistical, beach, & marine information. This tour is perfect for people that want to see more of the island and learn about everything.

This is an aromatic experience as medicinal herbs are a part of our culture and are generously covered. This is a true in depth cultural experience because it also covers traditional musical instruments from trees and their origin. The tour starts at any locale and travels through our capital Charlotte Amalie viewing and interpreting Emancipation Garden, Danish Colonial Warehouses and Trading Infrastructure, German Headquarters, French Town, University of the Virgin Islands, Mountain Top, Black Beards and Blue Beards Castle and current statistics. This is an interactive learning experience that makes several stops to take pictures, some of which you can walk or just stretch your legs.
