We love it!!!

Best tour Ever !!!!! The local food was the best . Dylan was so nice including Bob Marley . Definitely a must if you go to St Lucia. Despite of Covid restrictions we still ended up having a great time we love it so much that we ended up booking another tour with them we went to the botanical garden and snorkeling .
Awesome Experience!

The hike itself was challenging, but definitely worth it. My wife and I have hiked all of our lives, without guides, in Northeast USA. However, I would advise to go with a guide on this particular hike, as it is helpful to have another set of eyes to keep pace and ensure safety given how challenging the hike can be in the Caribbean heat.

Dilan was such an excellent guide, who was knowledgeable, welcoming, and friendly. Ask for him when you book! He will definitely take care of you.

Also, as an aside, they will offer you hiking sticks at the base of the mountain - I would advise getting one because the very steep rock scrambles coming down the mountain does a number on the knees. The hiking sticks really helped us out!
SO MUCH FUN!

This excursion was organized by Treasure Tours but my hike was facilitated by one of the guides at Pitons. Charkar organized my tour promptly and made sure I had water for the hike. She also recommended that I do the hike early in the morning before it got too hot outside. This was great advice.

My tour guide at Pitons was Shem, he was the best! He maintained a good pace for the group and was personable throughout the 4 1/2 hr hike. He even played from Bob Marley tunes on our way down which was nice. The hike is moderate to strenuous but the views at the top are like no other! It's well worth it!.
Exhilarating & exhausting; yet amazing climb!!!

Climbing Gros Piton was on my bucket list and despite the difficulty of it, I am thrilled that I did it. My husband and I did the hike the first day the Pitons opened after Hurricane Elsa which made it more challenging than expected because the ground was wet. Our guide was Gideon J. and he made the day one we will remember forever! He was waiting for us at the dock in Soufriere where we were driven to the Pitons to start the hike. Gideon was with us every step of the way, and he was knowledgeable, patient and an overall perfect addition to our day. He coached us through with gentle persuasion, enthusiasm and a great sense of humor. If you are in somewhat good shape and have a full day for an excursion, this is for you! Definitely bring plenty of water, insect repellent, protein snacks and rent the hiking stick. You will be in great hands if you are fortunate enough to connect with Gideon. The hike back down is far more difficult than the hike up. It should really be called a climb because it is steep but worth it - the views are amazing and what a workout! You may want to plan a massage for the next day because our legs were super sore - the last half on the way down was not easy and we slowed down a bit because we were worn out. Gideon never rushed us, never made us feel that we were weren't keeping up and it was a pleasure getting to know him through the day. Definitely an amazing experience and Treasure Tours is a reliable and safe tour company but it was Gideon that made our day extra special.
Challenging but a worthwhile achievement
