Unhappy Help with St. John Taxi safety on Carnival excursion

Can someonetell me about the roads and driving safely in St. John? We are taking the Carnival excursion where we will be taking a boat to St. John and then a bus to Trunk Bay. I would like to get some opinions on how steep and windy the roads were on this particular excursion as someone who is very afraid of heights. Thanks in advance.

The roads to Trunk Bay are not that steep. And there are a few bends here and there but nothing too crazy. I guess the first thing you will notice is that there are no guard rails along the road. You will stop a few times along the way to take pictures overlooking Trunk Bay (you know the ones you see in travel magazines). One of the best beaches in the world, I would not miss it.

The roads are narrow, moderately steep and winding but nothing I would consider unsafe. Go and have fun.
