Here’s what our guests are saying about our tours

My wife and I have been coming to St Thomas for many years and thought we knew everything about the island. Gerard was so knowledgeable about the history of the island. He told us facts about the island that we did not know. Gerard brought us to eateries that we did not know existed. My Brothers Workshop Bakery was awesome. Excellent Coconut Rum cake. We ate food we never would have ordered. We are so happy to have gone on this tour, which was a Christmas gift from our kids. If you are coming to St Thomas, sign up for this tour. Gerard is a wealth of knowledge.

We are not beach people and really wanted to see the 'real" St. Thomas. One of our more exceptional experiences was with Gerard and his incredible tour that went beyond the jewelry shops! The food was great -- and exceptional variety. It helped us pick places the remaining days of our stay. More importantly, Gerard's stories and historical details of his Island -- and his suggestions of where to go were extremely appreciated. Highly recommend!

I thought I saw it all after 10 years on St.Thomas... but no!
With friends in from Boston again, I looked for a low impact attraction that had a bit of history and the chance to give them a taste of local foods.
We met the tour guide at the oldest structure in St. Thomas, Fort Christian (1671), and learned its fascinating history. Then we spied some famous buildings on the hillside above town, notably Blackbeards Castle and the lookout tower used by Bluebeard. We passed the Lutheran Church, with its welcoming staircase and stopped in at a tea shop for a cold bush tea and a quiche made with salt fish.
With more interesting history and FAQs answered and we stopped in at Gladys', perhaps the local food landmark of the island. The Callallo soup was the best. Hearing stories from Gladys was great too. More good conversation as we walked to our next food delight. Everyone thought the gaspacho was the big winner there. We left the quaint alleys (some of which I knew nothing about) and wound up on the waterfront with a cold Bushwacker, the islands most famous adult beverage. All that in a pleasant 2.5 hours. Different, fun, delicious and fairly priced.

We went on the Main Street tour the day after Christmas. It was a group of six of us. The first stop was a delicious (and a little spicy) quiche, the second stop was a little bakery with a wonderful story. All of the tables and other finishings are made the young men and women in the community. Cuzzins was a special treat since we love sweet plantain. We tried local *kalaloo* and conch fritters. The tour ended with a refreshing bushwhacker.

This was a fun and laid back one-of-a-kind culinary experience. We enjoyed learning about the historic and cultural landmarks of St. Thomas while enjoying the taste of the island. Gerard was extremely knowledgeable about the local history and it's obvious he cares very much about the people of St. Thomas. Opened my eyes to the Caribbean food scene (seafood quiche, rum cake, callaloo) and we were introduced to eateries that we might otherwise not have found. Forks up!

Food was plentiful and loved that it was more local cuisine at off the beaten path stops. Come hungry. Price was a little high but food/beverage tends to be higher on St. Thomas than most places I travel. I wish them great success and hope to take the Frenchtown tour next year when we are in town. Good luck

We learned of the St Thomas Food Tour at a welcome reception at the Marriott Vacation Club at Frenchman's Cove. We did not have anything planned for the next day and we had been looking for something to 'taste' additional restaurant options in St Thomas. This turned out to be an excellent option. The booking and tour was handled by Aslin at St Thomas Food Tours. There is a website, google St Thomas Food Tours. Aslin started the tour about six months ago. The tour is a walking tour of downtown St Thomas and we visited 4 local favorites for a fairly large 'bite' sampling at each place. These were very well known St Thomas places, not some new places that wanted tour attention. Since the choices may change I don't want to specifically state which ones, but it did include the 'G' restaurant and the 'C' restaurant. Any food guide to the best St Thomas restaurants will let you know which ones they are. We also visited with one of the more well known folk artists in St Thomas. The tour ended with a sampling of a Bushwacker, a St Thomas signature drink, at a popular bar/grill. Aslin was very knowledgeable and has clearly worked with the local restaurants to provide a very nice tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommended it to the Cove staff who themselves had been waiting to hear from folks who took the tour. We took the morning tour, but they also have late afternoon tours.

I knew that a tour that combined food AND my favorite Caribbean island couldn't disappoint me! But this experience far exceeded my expectations. I'm not big on history, so I originally thought that the time between the food stops wouldn't interest me. The tour guide delivered the information in such a casual, interesting way that I never felt bored. I actually enjoyed learning about the island's rich history just as much as I loved eating and drinking my way through the tour! My favorite stop: E's Garden Tea House. We'll definitely be back.
