Ideal for the passenger who wishes to explore St. Maarten with minimal walking, this in-depth guided tour visits both the Dutch and French sides of the island. Board your air-conditioned transportation and proceed through the Dutch capital. Philipsburg is a bustling town with historical buildings, lovely street activity and an abundance of shops and cafés. Along the way to Marigot and the French side of the island, pass the Great Salt Pond followed by a photo stop at Cole Bay Hill. The tour proceeds through Cole Bay Village passing the unassuming border monument, and continue on through Belle View into the French capital of Marigot. The immediate area is flat and accessible and you are given ample time to explore independently. Then, drive through charming Grand Case and Orient Bay Village and proceed through the French Quarter and Oyster Pond village. Cross the border back to Dutch St. Maarten and return to the cruise ship pier.
