Awesome trip!
It doesn’t matter if it is a sunny or a cloudy day, i had an awesome boat trip on the Kayak. It is more or less like the best I have ever being on. I enjoyed every second spent on the La Datcha beach. I warmly recommend kayaking, and I'm coming back soon :)

Great Birthday activity!
I went on a boat tour for my birthday. I intentionally chose the see-though Kayak, and I wasn't disappointed after all. We had a lot of fun and the staff was really friendly! All of my friends enjoyed it a lot, had a wonderful birthday! Really recommend it for everyone!

The visit to the Police Office at the Death in Paradise.
For 5 Euros we could visit the Police Office at the Murder in Paradise. The actors were not there. The guide said we could visit everything here. We were able to sit behind a desk or being a prisoner in the jail. It was as if we were part of the series. The guide said that we had a good chance to be at the cast, if we wanted. Both my wife and myself speak French. We decided not to do so. Otherwise we would have to wait for another 3 months before they started tjt series again. There were lots of pictures of the actors. That was cool. This is a must see!

Brilliant tour & Guide
What a day we had from early p/up to having our guide drop us to airport late arvo. All DIP sites were spectacular for us show aficionados and with production vans everywhere as filming was underway we looked for cast members but to no avail. Really wanted to meet the Commissioner. Never mind. Cocktails watching the waves from Catherine’s bar a highlight plus a sneak peek inside Honore police HQ with case summary white boards set up. Went to the pier to watch the ferry leave and thought about Camille 😍 Shack was there on the beach and we stood watching the waves roll up against the shore thinking about Detective Poole having a beer siting here. The view from the lookout to the hotel where the cast stay and where the wedding death occurred was amazing. The Rhum factory and old plantation mansion where the body was found part of trip as well. Have Taina show you the show. She even shouted lunch Creole style by the beach. Come to Guadeloupe. 5 star. Brilliant.

Private tour!
I tried to book this tour before we went to Guadeloupe but was unable as the minimum number was 6 people. The hotel didn't do this excursion so we had to find an alternative. We were on the beach when a man called Tarzan approached us with his leaflet detailing his excursions. We asked about Death in Paradise and he said he could arrange a private taxi for the two of us. To be honest, we were a bit dubious but agreed a day and time and paid him a deposit. The day arrived and the taxi was bang on time! Our driver/tour guide was called Lloyd and his English was excellent. He took us to some lovely places that tourists wouldn't really know about and his knowledge about the island was amazing. We went to Catherine's bar, the police station and to the beach shack. Lloyd took photos for us and he even asked some locals if we could go to the Commissioners house but was told that it is actually a private residence. Nothing was rushed and it was a fantastic day for us. I would highly recommend Tarzan and Lloyd!

Blingual (French/English) tour broker in Guadeloupe
I highly recommend Guadeloupe Advisor based on my experience of booking multiple tours and transfers with him over a 2 week period in March. Since our French is limited, booking transfers and tours through an English speaking tour broker such as Stephane was priceless. He always responded promptly, often outside his regular working hours, and ensured that the transfer and tour providers delivered those services as promised. The transfers arranged through him and provided by Yannick were outstanding - spotlessly clean new car, on time service, bilingual driver.

Karibtuk was a wonderfoul tour through Point a Pitre with an excellent guide. Great experience
We had a tour through the city centre Point a Pitre as well we visit a beach outside the centre . But the highlight of the tour was the visit of the Fort Fleur d'Epee. Our guide Mr.Stevensson, by the way in our eyes the best guide of Guadeloupe, showed extensively places and told us interesting stories of the history as well as from the present way of living on the island.

We paid through Trip Advisor, visited the location and were given false information about being able to rent kayaks.
Do not go there. Instead go to the other kayak rental. We hope our money is refunded through Trip Advisor. We were falsely told we could hire kayaks (prepaid through Trip Advisor). Apparently they are not open on Fridays!!

A real fun trip. If you’re a fan you just gotta go
We did this trip/excursion from our cruise ship. Watched ALL the shows on TV and never really expected to get to see the settings. But once we realised our cruise was stopping in Guadeloupe..... no other tour would do. OK, No tv cast and no sets, but we visited the police station, the beach where the inspectors’ wooden shack usually “sits” (they take it away between shoots/series), Catherines bar and various other locations. Our knowledgeable guide pointed out loads of interesting facts which always helps. The music was an especially good touch as you walked up the p/station steps. We took a good few photos ( one in the cells was amusing / and sat at the inspectors desk). If you get the chance you must visit and yes our whole group had fun. It’s only when you tell anyone outside the “DIP bubble” that you feel a little anorakish!!! As a well known T shirt says “just do it” The beach setting is just magical and we did get a short swim.

Fun but
Maybe not worth 10 euros. Buddy, the location guy hosted us and told us where Katherine's restaurant was (Madras).

Snorkeling around Guadeloupe Lagoon
This activity was great! The tour guides were so nice, and spoke amazing English, which was so nice for my girlfriend and I, as we are from New York City. They not only gave us some great background and history on the island and the mangroves, but they were also very funny and genuinely pleasant to be around (they even gave us the inside scoop on some concerts on the island). For the manager: we visited on the afternoon of February 16th, 2019! Since we didn’t get their names, you should reward the tour guides that worked on that day. All in all, I would definitely do it again. For the tour guides: I’m the guy named Batman! Love you all! Merci!
