Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fort Christian

St. Thomas’s National Historic Landmarks, Fort Christian was completed by Danish settlers in 1680–making it the oldest structure in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Fort Christian is a Dano-Norwegian-built fort in Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Built 1672-1680, early in the first successful colonial establishment on the island, the fort served as a critical point of defense and government during the entire period of Dano-Norwegian, and later Danish, administration, which ended in 1917 with the sale of the islands to the United States. It currently holds the St. Thomas Museum, which holds artifacts and art of the Dano-Norwegian period. It was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1977. You can admire the beauty from the exterior or enter this fort museum to experience the history of the Fort. Admissions are not included in tour price. Admission fees: General Admission Fee (non-local adults with ID): $10 General Admission Fee (non-local children ages 5-12 with ID): $7 It was built originally to protect the colony and island from hostile marauders. Since its completion, it has served a variety of purposes: a jail, a governor’s residence, a place of worship, and a police station. Recently renovated, Fort Christian is a popular site for visitors with its red walls and imposing clock tower make the building perfect for photos. You will have the option to pass by and take pictures, or enter the fort at the $10 pp admission price. Admission is not included in the tour.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive Overlook offers a panoramic harbor view including Charlotte Amalie, Hassel Island, Water Island and more! You will be able to take pictures and indulge in this popular view site. You can enjoy the view while listening to the steelpan player. If you need souvenirs, there are a few vendors available at this popular spot, so bring your enthusiasm and your camera.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Drake's Seat

St. Thomas is mountainous and offers beautiful views. The most popular lookouts are Drakes Seat and Skyline Drive Overlook. Drake’s Seat was built in 1933 by Arthur Fairchild. In those days navigating the hills of St. Thomas involved traveling by horse or foot. He thought the spot where he put Drake’s Seat was a nice place for a rest. You too can take a break and enjoy the fabulous view from the famous seat! We will stop at Drake Seat Lookout and get spectacular views of the famous Magens Bay Beach (one of the top ten beaches in the world)

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Mountain Top

The overlook is located atop St. Peter Mountain–the island’s highest point–and has a vista of Magens Bay that rivals Drake’s Seat’s due to the higher elevation, which allows for a view of even more surrounding islands, including the British Virgin Islands. Visitors will find much more than just a great view at Mountain Top, however. The attraction is a good place to purchase souvenirs, clothes, and other gift items. Mountain Top is also famous for its signature drink, the banana daiquiri, which is made with a variety of flavors of local Cruzan Rum. As we arrive at Mountain Top and you will be free to take pictures, purchase a World Famous Banana Daiquiri/ drink or look through several souvenirs that are available for purchase.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Magens Bay

Magens Bay Beach is known to be one of the top beaches to visit in the world, making it #6 for 2019. You will not be disappointed! Located on the North (Atlantic) side of the island, Magens Bay (Estate Zufriedenheit) features a well-protected white sand beach stretching for nearly three quarters of a mile. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, as well as a gathering place for locals. The beach sits at the head of a deep bay, the arms of which are Peterborg peninsula to the east and Tropaco Point to the west. The bay's northwest exposure means its waters are usually calm, although storms in the North Atlantic can occasionally generate large waves in the winter months. The sandy bottom means snorkeling is of limited interest, although turtles, conch, tarpon and other fish are commonly spotted. After the Scenic Tour of sightseeing at Mountain Top, Drakes Seat and the Skyline Lookout, you will visit Magens Bay Beach or any beach on island of choice. We will then pick you up from the beach at your preferred time and get you back to your final destination on time. Beach time can vary, just let your driver know. Admissions are not included in tour price. Magens Bay beach entrance fees are $5 per adult and kids under 12 are free.
