Is Bernard's Tour really worth it for a family of four? Would it be more economical to just get a taxi?Only you can decide that, but if you want a tour of the island and have no worries about traffic or what time to get back to the ship, then I would definately recommend Bernard.
I don't know if they are finished with the road construction that was near Maho, but if they haven't traffic can be awful,, especially in the afternoon, so if you take a taxi be sure to allow enough time to make it back to the ship.
Many people do it both ways.......so again choose what's best for your family.
