Adventure Antigua Eco Tour reviews

Someone sent me this link to a not so nice review on trip advisor. IT's review #10 and doesn't do the tour justice at all. The funny thing is that right at the same time they did the tour this person did the tour too:

Hi All,

Just wanted to say thanks for an absolutely incredible tour. My wife and I went out on the Eco on Monday 7/13 and have not stopped talking about it since - definitely a highlight of our trip. The sightseeing, snorkeling, and the swim/climb to Hell's Gate were unforgettable. The crew of Chris, Alex, and Tony was awesome!! and they had us learning and and laughing the whole time out. It felt like we were saying goodbye to friends by the time it was all over (although a few cups of the rum punch may have had something to do with that!) We know some folks headed your way in a couple months and we will make sure they book their tour(s) with Adventure Antigua. Only bummer was there were no T-shirts left. Let me know if you get more in - i'd be happy to pay to have one shipped.

Top notch experience - thanks again !!

That was such a positive review. After reading several reviews where people voiced their dislike of hearing about the hotels on the way up the coast I made some changes. The thing is that we have to pass these hotels in order to get to the North Sound's islands and people will always ask about them as we pass them. We have been doing this tour for 10 years and if you don't speak about them so that the whole boat can here the crew just get called over by guest after guest to tell them what was the hotel we were just passing. I guess we will just tell people what they are while we pass with some very basic info.
Today another lovely review came in and I am going to try to remember to post them as often as i get them.

Hi Eli

I just wanted to drop a note to say what a great tour we had with Chris, Jason and Chantel (sp?) on our visit to Antigua. All three were very nice, extremely knowledgeable and great tour guides. We had a blast! The trip to Hell's gate, the snorkeling, climbing to the top of the mountain and the mangrove 'nursery' were fabulous. All were top notch.

Thanks again and tell Jason I still want to know what he puts in his rum punch! I have the rum but need the mixers. Perfect to sit in my pool and dream of being back there...


Many of the people who email nice reviews don't put them on forums or travel sites, so i will put them here for all to see. Thanks for coming out on our tours and thanks even more for telling people about them. We are not hooked up directly with any hotels, cruise ships or travel companies so your reviews are what sell our tours and we thank you!
