This was a great way to see St. Thomas! We had breathtaking views of the island. I learned more about the history & culture of St. Thomas.
Don’t do the cruise excursion tour- do this one.

For the fraction of a cruise excursion tour, Godfrey tours provided a detailed tour of the island. Actually, it was so detailed that my teens could write an essay about life on St Thomas. Not only did we see the usual tourist spots on the island but we were also shown how St Thomas gets is energy supply, water supply, how construction is done…..I thought is was a little too detailed myself but my husband really enjoyed the extra information.
The tour bus roof made it hard to see the sites on the bus itself. Stops are made at the major points and our tour guide gave clear, detailed historical facts about each site and the geographical significance of the islands around St Thomas.
On our tour, there was a couple that stopped at Magay beach for a couple of hours- perhaps that was a different tour but we bought the sightseeing and shopping spree. The shopping area was a disappointment- it’s the shops you could have seen at the port. However, a really friendly shop keeper walked us to Caribbean restaurant- Shama’s Restaurant when we made the comment we were hungry. At first, we were a little hesitant some stranger was walking us off the main strip and the restaurant was empty. We ordered conch fritters, fried shrimp dinner w fries, stewed oxtail with macaroni (casserole style macaroni and cheese) and rice and peas, and salmon. Every single thing we ate there was absolutely divine- so good we tried to find the guy who showed us the way to thank him when we were done.
There is a little straw market downtown along with shops.
The one big disappointment was that we didn’t get to see Blackbeard’s castle. That was the whole reason we went on the tour, my son is intrigued with the history of pirates in the Caribbean. It was pointed out but we wanted to actually go there. It was explained to us that the area was closed.
Of note, our cruise ship was a hour late getting off and my reservation with Godfrey Tours was affected. He calls you on your cell phone and does not communicate via TripAdvisor messaging like other tour companies may. So he called asking where we were and had to tell him we were getting off the ship late. He told us he had to leave but to take a taxi downtown to meet him and the other passengers when we got off. We were reimbursed for the cost of taxi and that hour lost was made up at the end of the tour. Ice cold drinks in a cooler and snacks were provided. The tour is 4.5 hours.
Our tour guide was professional,polite, and patient. Not warm and fuzzy but very good all the same.
Worth your time!

Thank you for the Island tour! We got to shop, sightsee, and learn some fun facts along the way. From start to finish, it was a great day. Because it was just us on the tour, our tour guide was able to adjust it to give us exactly what we wanted to see.
Great way to see Island

Tour was fun and informative. Our tour guide was a wealth of information about the Islands, although did repeat himself often. We had all the refreshments and snacks we wanted! And the drinks were ice cold, which is fantastic with the hot and humid weather of the islands!! Loved the open air seating, but the best views were from the end seats The middle seats couldn't see much due to the canopy top. For a full four plus hours, the price is super reasonable.
