Darkwood offers some of the most iridescent seas and white beaches on the island, set on a backdrop of hilltops and tropical forestry; the views are both panoramic and spectacular also on a clear day, you can see Montserrat.

Interesting, fun, and amazing views!

Julie is extremely friendly, easy-going, and knowledgeable tour guide. She explained the history of all the various landmarks we visited and passed on our tour. She also told stories throughout the tour. Julie was very engaging. The lunch portion was more than enough and was delicious. The small intimate group setting allowed for a more personalized tour. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a comprehensive and fun tour of the island.
Superb with Julie as our guide
Larinda_P, 06-10-2022
Our tour guide Julie was absolutely fantastic and very observant of my husband’s mobility problems. She accommodated and drove him as close as possible to the sites. She is knowledgeable, interesting, educational, yet not overbearing. Best tour guide we have had in a long time. Ask for Julie and you will definitely love her.
Amazing tour of a beautiful island

Or guide and driver Bertie gave us a wonderful tour of the island of Antigua. We enjoyed every single stop and also our lunch at Sweet T’s. We highly recommend Bertie and Viator.
Wonderful

The tour guide was amazing. She made sure we were good thee entire time. Absolutely no complaints. We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything Julie
A MUST!
Ednana92, 29-09-2022
Julie was my tour guide. She is absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable with the history of Antigua. Throughout the ride Julie would tell stories, random fun facts and pointed out things that you would normally miss. The views on this tour are breathtaking. For lunch we stop at Sweet T's. The food was very scrumptious and fulfilling. The group size was small which to me is a plus because the tour becomes personalized. Book this tour you will not regret it.
Awesome Tour!

Julie was amazing! So glad we took this tour. We had a great time and learned a lot about the history of Antigua and Barbuda. Julie was funny, told great stories, and even had riddles for us to answer. The views were beautiful and had plenty of opportunities for photos. The food was great as well. Highly recommend this tour!
First class sightseeing trip of Antigua.

We did a tour around the Island with Andre who was excellent. He’s a local who is clearly passionate about the history and the beautiful surroundings. We visited the cricket ground, Betty’s Hope, English Harbour and Shirley Heights within the trip, he was a mine of information. It was 6 hours which was just right and we stopped for a delicious local lunch. We had a very comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and the whole experience is thoroughly recommended.
Thank you to Julie who we met on route and insisted we must try the local Antiguan bun from the bakery, she was also lovely.
Wonderful Island Tour

We had the most excellent Bertie as our guide for this wonderful island tour covering all the major sites. He was knowledgable, good humoured and a skilled driver. He also stopped for some black pineapple for us to try. Clean, AC vehicle the best way to travel.
All around the island
SaiKrishna_D, 02-12-2022
We had the pleasure of Bertie as our guide who was knowledgeable, entertaining and great at adapting to our needs. Would highly recommend this intimate tour (4 pax in a keep)
Excellent tour

This tour was very enjoyable. Highly recommend if you want to see all the main attractions on the island.
Scenic Island tour with 'extras'!
Stephen_C, 25-11-2022
Bertie, our tour guide, was just great! He had an encyclopedia of local knowledge and, as well as visiting the main tourist sights, he showed us many other interesting things on the way like who owned what and where. His treat purchase of the famed black pineapple for us, was a generous extra! Luckily for us, we had him to ourselves on the trip, so his patience with our questionning and 'loitering' in places was much appreciated. Highly recommend this trip.
Great overview of island
patricia d, 24-11-2022
It was a very nice informative ride around Antigua. Bertie was our tour guide and he was very informative and pleasant. Had a nice meal at the restaurant. I would recommend
Relaxing interesting day.
brian s, 13-12-2022
Julie was our tour guide, she arrived promptly and was professional and knowledgeable. She was friendly and made us feel looked after. We went to the main attractions of the island and also learned the history of the island.
Main tip would be to take some loose change with you (US $) for eg charity donations, beach showers/ restroom etc.
Good value, and a relaxing driver.
Thoroughly recommended
James N, 12-12-2022
This is a fantastic way to enjoy an introduction to the island in one day. The booking process is excellent. As this is a popular tour I booked it well in advance before leaving home. Received several reminders along the way and payment is not taken until 48 hours before. Contacted via WhatsApp the day before for final arrangements and pick-up went like clockwork. Like several previous reviewers we were guided by Bertie and we can only reiterate how friendly and knowledgeable he was. Also like many, it was just the two of us in a large 4x4 with a/c. Timings were well put together and made for an enjoyable day out. Traffic is unpredictable in Antigua and it wasn't a problem that in the end we took an extra half hour before we arrived.
A must do in Antigua!

This tour is a must do when visiting Antigua!! Everything was very organized and seemless during the booking process. We were picked up from our resort by our tour guide, Bertie, and received wonderful service. We went on the full day tour and it was perfect. We were able to see all of the historical/sight seeing on the island. Bertie was very knowledgeable and easy to make conversation with. We stopped for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant and it was so tasty. I accidentally left my sun glasses on the tour bus and they so graciously dropped them off for me at the resort before my departure. Everyone is so nice and professional. I would highly recommend!!
Beautiful island
Claire_M, 08-12-2022
What a amazing experience. Saw the beautiful sights of the island, the driver was so knowledgeable. Didn’t feel rushed at any of the sights at all. Went with one other couple from another hotel, was a great day out. Thanks very much
