Stop at the Aloe plant was very educational. The other stops were beautiful. The driver accommodated all special requests. We were offered snacks and given bracelets to take home.

The route was quite ok, but it was a bit hard to understand the guide. Also at stops, us being a small group (only 3 of us) we had in most cases wait for the guide to be ready from his break as it should have been the other way around. San Nicolaas should definitely also be a stop!

I can't recommend this trip because I would be misleading other tourists, and maybe my friends too.
First of all, a travel agent appeared at the meeting point exactly at the start time of the trip which was quite stressful for our family, because according to the program it should be at least 20 minutes earlier.
Then, along with other participants, we traveled around hotels to gather other people, and after arriving at the first attraction of the trip we had to wait for another bus, but finally it would be understandable if not the other issues.
The trip consisted of 2 groups of tourists, the first who only paid for sightseeing and the second who paid for sightseeing and staying on the beach, and we were in the second group.
In the group that paid only for the sightseeing there were more people and de facto this trip was mainly for them.
The route of the trip was probably established many years ago, because some attractions were absorbed by nature, while others did not much arouse our interest.
The whole first stage of the trip consisting of taking a bus and visiting only the eastern part of the island lasted 4.5 hours and should end there, because the second stage of the trip consisting of staying on the beach was just a mockery.
After the first part of the trip has finished with some delay it is not known why we were taken from the wonderful beaches of the east coast to the very end of the west coast, to the Baby Beach where the driving in one direction lasted 45 minutes, and the view resembled a lunar landscape with prison in the background. After arriving the driver informed us that we only have 60 minutes to stay on the beach, because the return to the ship will take over 45 minutes, and the ship will not wait for us. So after counting the time to reach and return from the beach, we had only 40 minutes left for fun. On the beach nothing was prepared for us, neither a sunbed, nor an umbrella, nor even a tree, there was no place to hide from the sun. We left our things on the sand and wet our legs. The beach cove, which was created from the ocean flowing through the rocks, was average 2-3 feet deep and the lack of regular outflow suggested a concentration of germs especially with a large number of people staying or lying in the water.
I don't know why someone organizes a trip to the beach by combining it with another program, which after the foreseeable extension left us only 40 minutes to sunbathe !!! with driving time in both directions more than 1.5 hours. How the VIATOR could charge us almost twice more money than just for the first part of the trip.
VIATOR should refund money for something like this, because we didn't have any pleasure from it, and the beach part of the trip was a torment for us.
