Default St Thomas- need advice

We will be in port until 4:00 and want to be back at the ship around 3:00. It seems all the tours split sightseeing, shopping and beach (ideal) but get you back to the ship at 4:00. We can't seem to find more than one doing all 3 in a condensed version getting you back at 3:00, we didn't want to just do the beach or just sight and shop, want all 3 can anyone "guide us" without overpaying. Godfrey said he can do it, but from feedback and not finding anyone else to do it we are skeptical.

Somewhere I have the name of a really nice taxi driver we used to go to Red Hook with. He was very accomodating.
Also, there is a website the locals have with a board like this one where you can get lots of helpful info. Just PM me if you would like these contacts.

If I was doing an excursion that was cutting that close to departure time, I'd do a ship one, they will wait for you. If you are on your own, you are on your own and risk missing the ship.

Default Godfrey and St Thomas

Well it looks like we could be on the same cruise then, not sure what cruise youre on, we are on QM2 and we have booked Tour 1 with Godfrey which encompasses all 3 as you described, all reviews seem to be so positive and apparently he sticks to cruise times. One can only go by word of mouth and quite honestly I cant believe after all these years he has been taking tours from cruises that he would jeopardise his reputation.
