I used Shoretrips for every one of my port excursions on a cruise I went on last February to St. Thomas, St. Lucia, San Juan, Domenica, Barbados and St. Kitts. None of the tours was more than 4 people, the drivers were very friendly, courteous and picked us up right at the port on time. Something that doesn't always happen w/ the ship-booked tours, by the way. I will use them again. They have an excellent customer feedback system too so they maintain a good quality control. In St. Lucia, my tour guide said they called him the day before to check that all was in control. In Barbados, the driver said Shoretrips called while we were in Harrison's cave to make sure we met up w/ the driver OK. I highly recommend them and in many cases, their tours are cheaper than the cruise ship and far more personalized. I'd rather be w/ four people than 50 anyday.
Shoretrips is based in the USA, by the way.
