Spencer Ambrose Tours of St. Lucia


Don't take our word for it!  See what our guests have to say...

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!

We survived the Gros Piton Climb

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!

Jalousie Beach was a highlight of our trip!

We just got back from our cruise on the Carnival Victory and one of the highlights of our trip was the Jalousie Beach Break with Spencer Ambrose Tours! We were met promptly at the agreed upon time and we were at Jalousie Beach by 9:10 AM! What a gorgeous beach…a great place to snorkel…white sand beaches and clean restrooms. The staff (Devon and crew) were delightful and took care of our every need.

We highly recommend this tour and can’t wait to come back to St. Lucia to do it again!

Would Recommend this Tour to Anyone

We were excited to see St. Lucia, and were recommended to use Spencer Tours while there. The tour was great. We all enjoyed it, and had a great lunch, and learned much about the island and came back on an exciting boat ride.

We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting St. Lucia.

Could not have asked for a better day!

We want to thank Small Ambrose for taking us out for the day on Monday the 4th. We had an amazing time, and were treated to a private Around the Island Adventure Tour, as the two other couples who were to accompany us were conflicted with sickness and were unable to join us. While Spencer had to attend to other business, Small gave us his undivided attention, showing us the breadth of his knowledge and love for his homeland. We could not have asked for a better day and truly believe we have made another good friend.

We highly recommend Spencer Ambrose Tours and will take advantage of them again when we next visit beautiful St Lucia.

So Glad We Booked This Tour!!!

Spencer’s tour was the first shore excursion, not connected directly with a cruise ship, that we had ever booked. We are so glad that we booked this tour!!! Spencer and his associates provided us with a knowledgable and professional experience. We would highly recommend Spencer Ambrose Tours to anyone visiting St. Lucia.

Spencer, THANKS to you and your staff, for a truly unforgettable experience.

WONDERFUL Time with Spencer

A group of six of us took the West Coast Island Delight Tour with Spencer. We had a WONDERFUL time. Spencer was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend taking a tour with him. Even though our ship arrived into the port late, he was there waiting for us.

If we go back to St. Lucia we would definitely book with his company again.
