AMAZING Day with Spencer!
What should you do when you’re on St. Lucia with 60 of your closest friends? Well book a tour through Spencer Ambrose Tours that’s what. This was our first time booking with Spencer, but it definitely will NOT be our last. As Team Cocktail there are two things we like to do. 1) Find the most beautiful beach on the island and 2) Enjoy lots of local cocktails! Spencer couldn’t have put together a more perfect day for Team Cocktail! A day on a beautiful catamaran, open bar and a trip to the most beautiful beach on the island…it was perfect! To see what an AMAZING day we had with Spencer and the rest of the crew check out our blog & videos! Can’t wait til we’re back on St. Lucia in January!
Spencer makes you feel like family
I just got back from a tour with Spencer & I have to say it was Amazing! It takes a lot to impress me & Spencer did it! This man truly cares about everyone he takes out. He had plenty of water & beers for everyone which MOST other tours don’t have anything. He stopped any time we wanted to & explained everything in understood English. In most island tours, where you’re herded around like cattle & just a number, Spencer’s tour is smaller & makes you feel like family. My cruise ship stopped at 5 islands & Spencer’s tours in St Lucia, was by far my favorite. I have a walking disability & Spencer was there any time I needed help.
Lived up to Recommendation
Our friends recommended this tour and they had it right. Great service, knowledgeable, fun, accommodating and the rum punch was fantastic!
We would recommend this to anyone who wants a great trip!
Spencer tours are the best
This is the third time that my girlfriend and I have had the pleasure of seeing beautiful ST Lucia with some of the nicest people I have ever met. Spencer tours are the best, and when we see him we feel that we are with our friends and family. All of the staff were kind and friendly. I recommend Spencer for anyone. I look forward to when I will see him again, as we have become friends.
ps love and miss all you guys, see you soon!!
Spencer is AMAZING – He could train other service providers!
My wife and I returned to St. Lucia for our 2nd visit. Spencer picked us up the Airport and took us to our hotel. He is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about everyone he has dealings with. His vehicle was spotless and he is very funny and easy to understand. Upon arriving at the airport, the wife and I grabbed some “Rum Punch” from the Sandals reception area. Shortly into the trip, I made a comment to my wife about how we are out of rum punch already. Spencer offered to swing by his house that was nearby and get us some more! When in St. Lucia…….After a brief detour, we were back on the road with 2 more bottles of rum punch! It was delicious. Where else in the world will you ever encounter such a friendly person, who upon meeting you, offers you his own personal alcohol? The rest of our 1+ hour car ride was fun, informative and a great way to start our holiday. Spencer’s attitude is “Anything it takes to make you happy.” I think there are thousands of people in customer service who could learn from this man!
Well done, and thank you again Spencer.
My Favorite Excursion Ever!!
I want to start off by saying that we have taken many excursions and Spencer’s team and tour is awesome! He accommodated our group of 8 perfectly. We loved the boat ride to and from Jalousie Beach. THE BEACH IS BEAUTIFUL!! Spencer’s business is family operated and we loved that. Our lunch was prepared by his wife and it was delicious. His brother drove the boat along with another man who told us all about the island. They were great! Be sure to snorkel at the beach. It was beautiful.
I would highly recommend Spencer’s services!!
Enjoyed every minute!
Both my husband and I chose the Land & Sea tour after reading many a great review of Spencer, his team and the tour given. Absolutely, one of the best tours we ever had, despite some rainy weather at times. Spencer is definitely very proud and knowledgeable of his island and provided us with tons of information. The island itself was absolutely gorgeous and we enjoyed every minute of it. Can’t think of a much better way to spend our 27th wedding anniversary.
Thanks Spencer, Channel and team.
Spencer’s Tours are the BEST!
During our stay in St. Lucia, our family arranged sightseeing excursions with Spencer Ambrose Tours. We climbed the Gros Piton, visited Diamond Falls and Botanical Garden and bathed under the “warm” Piton Falls with mineral pools. We were fortunate enough to get Spencer himself! On the morning of our Gros Piton climbing adventure, Spencer pulled up to our hotel in his modern air-conditioned van with a big smile on his face. He was genuinely excited to see us and greeted us as if we were part of his own family. On route, Spencer kept us engaged and entertained. He pointed out many unique sights and told us all about the island, and the people of St. Lucia. We stopped several times along the way to take photos. When we arrived at the Gros Piton, our pre-arranged guides were waiting for us. Spencer provided complimentary cold water bottles for our climb – and of course Piton beer to enjoy and take a photo with at the summit!
After our 4-hour climb (it was a good work out!), Spencer was there waiting for us. He took us to the rustic Big Yard Restaurant in Soufriere for a delicious Creole barbecued chicken lunch. On the way he stopped and let my youngest son climb a mango tree and pick some mango’s. He cut them up for us to sample. They were so juicy!
We also took a coastal tour with Spencer and Captain Kurt. We enjoyed the beach stops (and climbing those gorilla’s!) and seeing the beauty of the island from the sea by his speedboat. (We thought his boat was much more impressive than the standard water taxi’s that we saw). Again, we had a wonderful time with Spencer. His tours really are the BEST! Spencer’s entertaining stories and knowledge of the island provided us an experience that we will never, ever forget. The photos, especially from the top of Gros Piton are priceless.
Thank you, Spencer! We will never forget you or your beautiful island.
Can’t say enough about this tour!
My husband and I had the pleasure of taking the Jalousie Beach Break with Spencer Ambrose and his crew Kurt (Skipper) and Terry (Gilligan) …. LOL! We can’t say enough about this tour. They picked us up at the dock and brought us to the tour boat. We had a beautiful ride around the island to where the Pitons were. In between the Pitons is where the Jalousie Beach is and where you get to relax and enjoy St Lucia in all its beauty. The water was crystal clear that day and the snorkeling was unbelievable. We saw all kinds of colored coral and different types of coral. We brought an underwater video/camera with us and we are so glad we did. We couldn’t begin to count the different kinds of fish that we saw. If you’re not a snorkeler and still want to see all kinds of fish, bring a small box of Rice Krispies (or any small cereal) with you from the ship and sprinkle them in the water. The fish will come to you by the hundreds. They must be used to it because if you walked in without the bag they didn’t come to you nearly as much as they did if you had the bag in hand. They sure loved the food!! Be prepared to bring a pair of water shoes as the side we are permitted to snorkel on is rocky for the first few feet as you walk in. The other side of the dock belongs to the Island Resort and there you are only permitted to use the beach for swimming and sun bathing. We got there early with this tour so there were lots of umbrellas and lounges for our use. The tour provides lots to drink (alcohol and non-alcohol) as well as a nice lunch. We aren’t drinkers so we enjoyed the Coke Zero and the Bottle Water. After our day at the beach they picked us up and took us on a tour around the island and showed us a bat cave, a couple of small fishing villages and also the tunnel of love, also known as the lady slipper. It was a beautiful day!! Spencer and his team are good people and love to tell you about their beautiful island. I want to especially thank Kurt and Terry who took extra special care in helping me in and out of the boat as well as the lounge chair. You two are Great Guys and thank you so much for making our time with you memorable.
Also, I just want to mention that Spencer collects school supplies for the local schools on the island, so if you have a little extra room in your suit case for even a large zip lock bag of school supplies I know he would greatly appreciate it. Even though he doesn’t advertise it, Spencer and his wife love almonds and they are hard to get but also are expensive on the island. It’s a little extra treat we brought for them as a Thank You for all the communication he provided for us before the Tour Date.
Thanks again Spencer, Kurt and Terry for all your hard work and friendliness, it made our time with you very enjoyable and memorable!! These 2 Canadians will never forget you or your beautiful island!!
One of the very best days of our trip!
Gary and I recently returned home from a wonderful cruise on “Serenade of the Seas.” Gary found the Spencer Ambrose tour through Cruise Critic. It was the only excursion we booked that wasn’t through Royal Caribbean so we were slightly unsure about what to expect. We were not disappointed! In fact, it was one of the very best days of our trip! We toured St. Lucia with Small, who is a wonderful guide. He was extremely informative, friendly and helpful the entire day! We had a fabulous day and felt we really got to experience some of the highlights on St. Lucia.
We highly recommend the Spencer Ambrose tours to everyone and hope to be back ourselves one day! Thanks, Small!
