Awful Driver
Sadia_A
, Jun 2022
The experience of hiking the Pitons itself was fantastic but coordinating transportation was a massive issue - our driver was 1.5 hours late in the AM, drove like an absolute maniac down the roads and at several points I feared our shuttle was going to veer off a cliff, demonstrated unprofessional behavior by making several stops to “exchange a tire for his motorcycle” and “pick up something” on the road. He was also nowhere to be found once we finished our hike. For the price you’re paying, go with a more reliable transportation service.

Hard hike, but worth all the way. It wasn’t the clearest of days & rained. However, the views are amazing, guides are local & knowledgeable & the work-out really good. Be ready to walk up many steps.

Great tour ruined by company organizer
Alexandra_C
, Feb 2022
Had an amazing journey with our driver Julian down to the Pitons and especially with our hiking guide Cameron. Both delivered excellent experiences and were great company to have around. What I did not appreciate was the harassment from this company, claiming I refused to pay the Piton entrance fee, that I should pay more attention to detail, that I threw a fit at the entrance, telling me they reported me to my hotel, and claiming I owed them more more money because I never paid the entrance fee. I was aware of the additional entrance fee, paid it no problem, had all the credit card statement and tickets to prove it and had a lovely time otherwise. They sent me countless messages, harassing me that I had done all these things I didn't do and being extremely rude. Finally after telling them I would send over my receipts, they realized, "Oh sorry, have the wrong person!".... Was incredibly disappointed by the way this was handled and soured an otherwise lovely adventure. Check your information before berating an innocent customer.

I rather deal with straight forward and honest people. Than knowing that I'm dealing with a scammer. All of our reviews are excellent so this speaks for itself.

My guide, Damascus was highly skilled and made the experience well worth the challenge. We made great time up the mountain and back down again and stopped for brief rests, snacks and photos.

Incredible Challenge
Daniel_B
, Jan 2022
This was an excellent tour and a really rewarding experience. We had an easy pick up and a welcoming and informative drive to the mountains. The hike was guided by two brilliant twins who understood the pace of the group well and our ability. It is as hard as other people say, when the guides say that it is strenuous they mean it. Take advantage of the trekking poles for hire at the base, it is a cheap deal, we didn’t avail ourselves of it and our knees and ankles regretted it! The view from the top is incredible and well worth all the effort. The park fees can be paid in cash or by card, but everything else in the park (food/souvenirs etc) was cash only so be prepared. Ask the driver to take you to Soufriere after to get lunch. You will need the fuel!

Not good experience

The activity does not really reflect what was advertised . There were no stop to visit the island just straight to the hike. Also the team member are not responsive and no proper drinks were offered . Expensive for what you get.

We don't offer this type of service neither the experience, you're just being a hater trying to tarnish our reputation. All of our reviews Speaks High Volumes!!

Kevin was an excellent guide. In view of the inclement weather, Kevin initiated switching up our day to maximize our experience of St. Lucia and not be negatively impacted by the rain. Our only issue was his communication. Could be accent etc.articulation at times it was difficult for my husband and myself to understand him. He would gladly repeat himself. However, it was frustrating

Gros Rip-Off

The experience was nice enough. Beautiful scenery. Decent guide. But the cost of the trip was outrageous, even by St. Lucia standards. Our day cost us $300. It included: a 15km taxi ride to the park. A "guide" who was nice enough but not at all necessary (Guides are required. Tip of the cap to St. Lucia for nationalist economic politics. I'm a big fan. Seriously. Keep charging travelers $50 to hike the Piton. I don't think Viator is a Lucian company, however. Right?). Two Piton beers. And a transfer to our hotel. Don't contract with Viator. Negotiate your own deal. This is 2020. You have the internet. If you have any research skills, bargaining ability, and self-confidence, save yourself some money, and help Viator die an easeful death.

This was a challenging yet rewarding hike. The driver had a vast knowledge of the island and was happy to make stops on the way and from the hike. Excellent customer service.
