I thought I saw it all after 10 years on St.Thomas... but no! With friends in from Boston again, I looked for a low impact attraction that had a bit of history and the chance to give them a taste of local foods. We met the tour guide at the oldest structure in St. Thomas, Fort Christian (1671), and learned its fascinating history. Then we spied some famous buildings on the hillside above town, notably Blackbeards Castle and the lookout tower used by Bluebeard. We passed the Lutheran Church, with its welcoming staircase and stopped in at a tea shop for a cold bush tea and a quiche made with salt fish.

With more interesting history and FAQs answered and we stopped in at Gladys', perhaps the local food landmark of the island. The Callallo soup was the best. Hearing stories from Gladys was great too. More good conversation as we walked to our next food delight. Everyone thought the gaspacho was the big winner there. We left the quaint alleys (some of which I knew nothing about) and wound up on the waterfront with a cold Bushwacker, the islands most famous adult beverage. All that in a pleasant 2.5 hours. Different, fun, delicious and fairly priced.

My wife and I have been coming to St Thomas for many years and thought we knew everything about the island. Gerard was so knowledgeable about the history of the island. He told us facts about the island that we did not know. Gerard brought us to eateries that we did not know existed. My Brothers Workshop Bakery was awesome. Excellent Coconut Rum cake. We ate food we never would have ordered. We are so happy to have gone on this tour, which was a Christmas gift from our kids. If you are coming to St Thomas, sign up for this tour. Gerard is a wealth of knowledge.

This was a fun and laid back one-of-a-kind culinary experience. We enjoyed learning about the historic and cultural landmarks of St. Thomas while enjoying the taste of the island. Gerard was extremely knowledgeable about the local history and it's obvious he cares very much about the people of St. Thomas. Opened my eyes to the Caribbean food scene (seafood quiche, rum cake, callaloo) and we were introduced to eateries that we might otherwise not have found. Forks up!

We are not beach people and really wanted to see the 'real" St. Thomas. One of our more exceptional experiences was with Gerard and his incredible tour that went beyond the jewelry shops! The food was great -- and exceptional variety. It helped us pick places the remaining days of our stay. More importantly, Gerard's stories and historical details of his Island -- and his suggestions of where to go were extremely appreciated. Highly recommend!

I knew that a tour that combined food and my favorite Caribbean island couldn't disappoint me! But this experience far exceeded my expectations. I'm not big on history, so I originally thought that the time between the food stops wouldn't interest me. The tour guide delivered the information in such a casual, interesting way that I never felt bored. I actually enjoyed learning about the island's rich history just as much as I loved eating and drinking my way through the tour! My favorite stop: E's Garden Tea House. We'll definitely be back.
