Overview

    What to Expect
    After pickup at your Philipsburg hotel via comfortable shuttle, head out to see both the French and Dutch sides of the island on this St Maarten sightseeing tour.

    Learn about how both the Dutch and French settled the island in the 17th century, then joined forces against the Spanish conquistadors to protect their home and divided it equally between themselves. The French side is St-Martin and the Dutch side is St Maarten.

    Stop at Grand Case Beach, a gorgeous stretch of white sand on St Martin's coastline. Stroll along the beach, bask in the sun, or wade and swim in the calm tropical water before a visit to the town of Grand Case. In town, try some of the guavaberry rum punch or purchase a lunch of Johnny Cakes or chicken legs, local specialties.

    Travel to Marigot, a charming village with European ambiance. Stroll the streets lined with original colonial buildings and make a few duty-free purchases at the shops or the open bazaar.

    Maho Beach is your last stop on the tour. Well-known for its proximity to Princess Juliana International Airport, this beach is an excellent place to watch jumbo jets taking off and landing.

    Drive through beautiful Simpson Bay on the way back to your hotel in Philipsburg for drop-off after your international 4.5-hour sightseeing tour.

    We had a wonderful time. The tour guide took us to both sides of the island with explanations of everything we were seeing. We made frequent stops with enough time to look and experience the island.
