Fantastic tour with history, local insider tips, and incredible food!  ★★★★★

"I highly recommend this tour to anyone  visiting St. Croix! It was a fabulous way to learn about the history and culture of the island while eating amazing food. Our tour guide was fabulous, and she gave excellent recommendations for other things to do on St. Croix, too. We really appreciated the wide variety of food on the tour -- there was a little something for everyone. There are obviously so many different types of food one could try on the island, and we felt like this tour gave us a nice taste of each major type of cuisine so we could figure out what we loved the most...but, it was all delicious, so it was hard to choose! Do this tour early in your trip so you can go back to your favorite restaurants -- we certainly did!"   Jul 2023 • Couples

This tour made me want to come back to St. Croix just for the food!    ★★★★★

"We visited St Croix on a Virgin Voyages cruise. My husband isn't big on snorkeling, so I booked this tour and it was the best! The food was so much better than on the cruise ship! Anquanette was a great guide and took us to so many places around Christiansted. She showed us the best places to eat, shop, and the history of the area. You will leave the tour FULL! I've been on many food tours and that doesn't happen often. HIGHLY recommend if you are a foodie that doesn't like water activities. Tour also comes with a free souvenir cup!"    July 2023, Nina Rojas

LD and Charlie were fantastic.    ★★★★★

Book this tour friends- you will be glad you did."  October 2023, Jennifer Conwell
