This tour was the highlight of my Antigua trip. I really enjoyed the personable interaction with tour guide Gregory, from National Tours and Services. Devil’s Bridge was a standout for me, since it was really emotional thinking about the African slaves that jumped to their death to escape slavery.

Antigua is one of the most gorgeous Caribbean islands we have toured over the years. Our tour guide for the day, Dale, was beyond accommodating. He indulged me in all my 'photo ops'!!!!! As he drove, he described in great detail where we were and what we were seeing. If you want a fantastic day seeing Antigua, Dale will be sure have it.

This was an excellent tour. I was the only person on the tour that day. My guide was punctual, friendly and very knowledgable and showed me all the main points of interest on the island, especially Nelsons Dockyard. As a cricket fan I was very pleased to be able to go inside the Sir Viv Richards Stadium. I strongly recommend this tour.

Customer service is outstanding, but the tour is mainly driving, not too much to look at in terms of island history. It might be not for everyone.

This tour was amazing. We saw some of the most beautiful areas in Antigua and we had such a knowledgeable guide. Dale was a great guide and if we ever come back to the island he will be our #1 request as a guide. We had VIP treatment the whole time and I would definitely do it again.

Tour wasn't horrible but our tour guide was more worried about us stepping off a cliff or falling into the ocean than anything. He was quite portly so everything involved staying right next to the car and making sure we didn't have some kind of accident.

Cyril was a fascinating and enthusiastic guide and we actually had a more-than-3-hour tour of Antigua. We managed to stay ahead of the cruise-ship crowds and overall we would definitely recommend this tour of an historic and beautiful island.

Michael's punctual arrival at our hotel with a warm and friendly greeting put us at instant ease. The tour began and we can honestly say it was full of information as well as seeing the most wonderful sights that we just would not have experienced had we not gone on this 4 hour delight. The A/C transport was an added bonus and very comfortable. I would highly recommend the round island tour.
