We left St. Martin with one thought in mind, “When can we go back again?” We loved touring this island and that is in no small part because of our fabulous guide Ms. Joyce Prince. From the moment she picked us up, we were quite taken by her great spirit. She was friendly, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. In our group there were six adults, a four year old and a two year old and she was fantastic with all of us from young to old. My kiddies usually take a while to warm up to strangers but they were fast friends with Joyce immediately.
She took us on a full day private tour of the island and even provided a car seat and a booster seat for the kids. All kinds of drinks were included on this tour from water and juice boxes for the kids, to pop and beer for the adults. And don’t forget to try her homemade rum punch, made from a secret family recipe! It will give you a true taste of the real caribbean – trust me, my auntie couldn’t get enough of it. Special note, this is a ‘sipping punch’, not a chugging punch.
When you check out Joyce’s website, she starts out by saying you have a friend in St. Martin, and that’s exactly how we felt. We came away feeling like we made a wonderful new friend who opened up her doors and showed us her home. There are not many places in the world that I would go visit again, (I love the thrill of discovering somewhere new) but St. Martin is now on my list of places to see again. I can’t wait to re-visit the island, and when I do, I’ll be booking in advance to go on another tour with Joyce. She books up fast and you don’t want to go with the rest, because Joyce Prince Tours is the absolute best.
