Best tour of Soufriere if you are staying in Rodney Bay!

We are so glad we found this trip through Viator! The car was so clean and extremely comfortable for two people. The plantain and sweet potato chips were our favorite out of the refreshments provided. Our driver Kimbert was so sweet and knowledgeable. If you need a car to tour Soufriere you should book this one.

My sister and I did not do a lot of research before booking our trip to SL. After our ride to the hotel from the airport, we were worried that we would not get to all the sights we wanted to see. The drive from Rodney Bay to Soufriere (which is closer to the airport) is long and windy due to SL’s mountainous landscape. We thought it might be faster by boat, but the boat tour the hotel had available only brought you to the mud baths, and we wanted to do more stops. This tour had everything we wanted to see, and it was cheaper than getting a taxi locally, so we booked it.

Kimbert let us chose the order of stops we wanted to do, and allowed us to exchange the rum tasting (we’re not big drinkers) for a lunch at Hotel Chocolat. Our advice to futures travelers is bring small bills (for entrance fee and tips) and exact change for the bath admissions so you can leave your things in the car. If you get car sick bring Dramamine, no amount of driving skill can change the number of hairpin turns you’ll encounter. Bring pool shoes and sneakers if you plan on doing the Tet Paul nature trail and the baths. If you’re a foodie, you can pick your lunch stop. I would not say this is a half day tour, for us there was a lot of traffic that day (Monday), plus we had a long lunch, so the excursions actually took the whole day 8:30-6pm. On the drive down you will also make several scenic stops, we stopped by Kimbert’s friend’s banana farm which was very interesting, and we stopped at an adorable local chocolate shop which had amazing truffles (Hotel Chocolat does not sell truffles). The hot springs really are very hot. You’ll have an amazing and full day! We were trying our hardest not to doze off in the way back.
See Soufriere the way you want - fantastic private tour option

Fantastic day. Essentially it's having a driver take you around for the day, sharing his/her knowledge and local insights, and helping you tick off all the things you want to cover in the Soufriere area. We were able to tailor for the things we wanted to do and added in the Project Chocolat tour (booked separately). Great communication after booking and before the day itself.
The driver was friendly and funny - made the long journey from Gros Islet to Soufriere much more enjoyable.
As it was private (just my friend and me) it avoided the hassle of joining a busload of other people and having to be restricted about what we did.
Note: you will need to pay for the sights/attractions themselves (e.g. rum distillery, volcano etc) when you arrive so take both cash and card.
Overall, highly recommended.
Incredible day tour in St. Lucia!

A truly wonderful day - definitely the best way to go about experiencing the island! Prior to our tour I had messaged Alisha to ask a couple of questions, and she always responded promptly and thoroughly. On the day of our tour, Donald picked us up right from the cruise port in a very comfortable car stocked with beer, water, and rum, and we talked through our itinerary for the day. The day was very flexible, and it was awesome being able to decide exactly where we wanted to go and how much time we wanted to spend there. Another large cruise ship was in port that day, and Donald was a pro at getting us places at the exact right time to beat all of the crowds. The drive into Soufriere was very scenic, and Donald answered all of our many questions about things we saw out the window or anything about island life that came to our minds. We chose to do the Tet Paul Nature Trail (which was amazing) and the Botanical Gardens/Diamond Falls, then headed to a buffet for lunch that Donald recommended. The food was delicious. After lunch we went to the New Jerusalem Mineral Baths, which was probably my favorite part of the day; we had the baths completely to ourselves, and they are set back into the rainforest so the scenery was wonderful. I asked Donald if we could stop by a beach on the way back into Castries, and he took us to a gorgeous beach between the mountains so we could stand in the ocean for a while. On the ride back, Donald took us by all the best photo spots so we could hop out and take some pictures (the view of Marigot Bay was stunning). By the end of the trip, we were not ready to leave! Thank you Donald for a wonderful day!
Pitons, Mud, Plantations, Mineral Springs & More - Your Call

Thank goodness for choosing this tour! Spotless vehicle all to yourself, refreshments provided, and a polite and careful driver familiar with the winding roads. This is the only way to tour St. Lucia from my perspective. Choose your own path! That being said, there are a few things to note.

We arrived on a day that had two cruise ships in town and we found that to be a big challenge. By the time we made the long trek out to the Soufriere mud bath and waterfalls were incredibly busy with long lines. That might be a tour bus advantage. We ultimately skipped the mud bath due to this and were able to choose other options that made better use of our time - a huge benefit to this tour! Things we did and enjoyed - banana plantation stop, misc photos, markets, Pitons Nature trail (awesome views, 30 minute relatively easy hike), mineral spring bath (just ok), and the Nature Center (waterfalls) and local buffet lunch next door.

It is a 90 minute drive out there. On the way, you will have several stops that help it go by quickly - from scenic bay photos, banana plantations, markets, etc. It is absolutely winding roads the entire way. It didn't get me until the drive back when it seemed to never end. Bring CASH, no cc.
