Our family of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids - 14,11,11,8) are booking a private tour in St Martin for the day. Bernard is $480 and Joyce is $400. Both include drinks along the way - I believe Bernard is 6 hrs, Joyce 5 hrs.

Any personal experience that would help me choose one over the other?

Used Bernard's the only time I've been to SXM and enjoyed thoroughly. In fact, it ended up being only myself and a couple from Germany. So it was practically a private tour for $40. I'm not so sure I wouldn't have just canceled if I were the operator when only that many people show up, so I was impressed they did it anyway. Was nice and informative, and a nice time.

We loved Bernard. FANTASTIC guides with them. We won't hesitate using them anytime we go back to St. Maarten.
