What our guests have to say...
Highlight of our trip!
We’ve traveled to St Lucia before but the Anse Chastanet and Jalousie Beach tour made this visit to St Lucia the best one yet! We were on the NCL Gem and chose Spencer Ambrose because of all of the good reviews, I’m so glad we did! Our Captains Shane and Brian were amazing- they were so professional and we had a blast! We will definitely be back and will certainly be booking through Spencer Ambrose again! Thanks for such a great, worry free, fun time!
Gros Piton Climb
We had a great experience with Spencer Ambrose tours. They picked us up very close to the cruise ship around 8:30 and drove us by speedboat around the island to the Pitons. Along the way, they did drop off a couple of groups of people doing other tours. One thing to note – the speedboat was VERY bumpy going over some large ocean waves. To be expected, and no one on our boat got sick from it, but it wasn’t the most comfortable ride there.
We were set up with a local guide for the Gros Piton hike and were given 4 hours to climb up to the top and back down to the beach. We were able to do it in 3 hours 15 minutes (we are 29 year olds with a decent fitness level), although it was one of the harder hikes we have done. It is very humid, and there are some extremely steep and rocky sections that were challenging us. Spencer Ambrose provided us with 8 bottles of water between the 2 of us to make sure we were sufficiently hydrated, and we are very thankful that they did. It was very worth it, however, for the views from the top and the sense of accomplishment. Afterwards, they picked us back up from the beach and brought us to a resort with the other groups for a packed lunch and a little relaxation time. The food was all local and very good, along with free local beer and water/soft drinks. They offered us a little time to snorkel if we wanted to, even though we did not sign up for that. On the way back, the guides gave us a little history of all the towns on the coast along with some wine and drinks. It was a much more pleasant boat ride back into town. We got back in plenty of time to browse the shops around the cruise port before we had to get back on the boat by 4:00. All in all, a fantastic experience.
We were a party of three people and our first time going with Spencer Tours. And we are so happy that we did!!
The speedboat ride, the mud bath, waterfall and lunch on the beach was amazing! The crew was so friendly and outgoing made everyone comfortable. We saw so much on the ride back it was very interesting and informative. Those boys jumping off the cliff was crazy.
We will definitely be going back to Spencer tours when we go back to St. Lucia. Thank you for your hospitality and making us feel like family.
Definitely a 5 star tour!!
Best tour of St. Lucia!
We met Spencer and team right on the dock just a few yards from our ship and took off with a full group toward Soufriere right on time. Everything was as advertised, we went first to the mud bath and then to the waterfall to clean up and it was very refreshing. Then back to the boat and beautiful views of the Pitons followed by a great lunch and a couple of hours at Jalousie beach. There was plenty of time to snorkel (not the best snorkeling day but we did see a few fish). Then a great fast ride back to Castries and just a very short walk to our ship. It’s hard to imagine seeing so much of St. Lucia in just a few hours without the help of Spencer’s team and the logistics they have set up. It’s really a great operation considering all they put into it for this price. I highly recommend taking this tour to anyone headed for St. Lucia. It was one of the highlights of our cruise!
Unique and FUN tour
My family of 4 (kids aged 12 and 9) absolutely loved this day trip with Spencer and his team. Everything was well organized and thought out (including a focus on safety). The mud baths are a MUST DO experience for anybody looking for something different. As a travel agent, I am very critical of the service provided by local tour operators, but I will definitely be recommending Spencer’s tour to all of my clients visiting St Lucia.
Perfect Day at Jalousie/Sugar Beach
The first leg of our trip was cancelled due a very strong current which would have made it difficult to snorkel, so we spent the majority of the day at Sugar Beach which was the second leg of the trip. The snorkeling at the Marine Park (right side) was quite good (bring water shoes because the rocks will hurt barefoot!!). The beach to the left for swimming is also very nice with some snorkeling opportunities because the floor is mostly vegetation and not sandy. The beach is located between the two Pitons which is very scenic. The staff, which included the owner’s daughter were very nice and the lunch and unlimited drinks (rum punch was quite strong) made for a perfect day. I would definitely book with this operator again if I were to visit St. Lucia again.
We saw so much and it was an amazing experience. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and the included lunch is sooo yummy. This tour was THE BEST by land and by sea. You take a beautiful scenic boat ride to and from the ship/town and also get to see the highlights on land. You spend just the right amount of time at each place.
Fun in the Sun
We couldn’t have asked for a better tour!! From the time they picked us up till we got back it was non stop fun in the sun. Spencer went above and beyond to make sure we got some of the island favorite “Banana ketchup”. I would highly recommend this tour and it will become a must for us when we return to the beautiful island of St. Lucia
Beautiful island and people
We were a group of four along with other groups. All of the groups had at least one traveler with physical needs. Spencer, Lucky, and She She were very helpful and attentive and everyone was able to enjoy our boat ride and beach trip with no problems. We had an absolutely delicious fresh lunch prepared just for us on the beach by a lovely local lady. Everyone who works for Spencer is kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and rightly proud of their gorgeous nation!
Fabulous snorkelling and beach excursion
We booked the Spencer’s Snorkelling Adventure and everything about the experience was excellent. We were taken to 2 dive sites and the snorkelling was amazing. We also taken by high speed boat to two beautiful beaches and on the last beach Sugar Bay we were served a lovely lunch. All the staff from the boat driver, tour guide and cook were friendly, helpful and did their utmost to make sure we had an enjoyable day. I would definitely book another trip with them when we are next in St Lucia.
