We booked an independent tour thru Godfrey Tours (online). This worked out seamlessly. Our first stop was the Gift Shop on top of the "mountain" (famous for it's Banana daiquiri's). This is by far the best place to purchase ALL your souvenirs. The selection was amazing, as were the prices! Also via the island tour we scoped out Magen's Bay, Coki Beach, and Sapphire Beach. Coki Beach was a total "no way" for us...tiny beach with zillions of people and local "salesman" hounding you from the moment we opened the van door! Sapphire was a bit more relaxed & laid-back but Magen's Bay definitely took the cake. Beautiful setting and large enough to escape the crowd if you were willing to walk a ways down the beach.

St. Thomas is a very beautiful place to visit and have been many times. I have been to mast of the beaches and to most of their attractions. My favorite thing to do though is go to Magen's Bay beach. It is probably the most beautiful place you will see. I honestly would love to live on St. Thomas.

Excursion to St John via ferry and open air taxi was very enjoyable. Tour guide, Brian, on the ferry could be a stand up comedian. Gave us lots of history and information on the islands and was most entertaining in the process. St John is a beautiful island that is 2/3 National Park.

We went to Megan's Bay. If you are just going to beach,take cab 8.00/pp each way. Cheaper than excursion and you can leave when ready

Get a banana daiquiri. If you go to the beach, Sapphire Beach Or Megan's Bay are both beautiful and you can snorkel. Good deals on jewelry and there is an extra duty free allowance since it is a US territory.
