Island Driving

Guests will visit both the Dutch and French sides of St. Martin on a 4-hour long foodie journey. We start off by foot in front of the best cheese shop in Sint Maarten: the Amsterdam Cheese and Liquor Store in Philipsburg. Following our tantalizing select cheese and wine tasting you’ll be swept away in our air conditioned luxury vans to enjoy the island’s scenery and its history, narrated by an experienced local guide, to your various other foodie locations. On your tour you may taste escargot, island BBQ, enjoy a wine and cheese pairing, indulge freshly made Italian gelato and sip hand crafted rum infusions only an island like Saint Martin can produce.

Tour with us to sip and savor French, Dutch and Creole cuisine PLUS learn about the island’s unique history and culture through the lens of a local foodie.


With Flavors of St. Martin the focus is on the food and drink that’s made this island a culinary icon. You’ll also have opportunities to learn about the island’s basic history, shop, take photos and sight see. It’s the best of everything St. Martin has to offer! Highlights:

  • Enough food/drink for a meal eaten across several sit down restaurants
  • The #1 ranked Food tour and Bus Tour in Sint Maarten/Saint Martin on Trip advisor with a 5-star average
  • Narrated history of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin with experienced tour guide
  • Ample photo oportunities
  • Comfortable air conditioned van and light walking during tour
  • See both sides of the island – Dutch and French!

Frequently asked

Time Zone Differences in Sint Maarten/Saint Martin2017-01-30T16:57:57+00:00

Please be sure to check the LOCAL TIME IN SINT MAARTEN/SAINT MARTIN , which observes Atlantic Standard Time and does NOT use Daylight Savings Time. Flavors of St. Martin is NOT responsible if you are late to a tour because you are unaware of the local time zone.

Do you operate tours in the rain?2017-01-16T20:53:43+00:00

Yes. The tours are held rain or shine. You should dress appropriately for the day’s weather conditions and bring an umbrella if necessary. Luckily the showers in the Caribbean are usually brief and light.

In the rare event that WE cancel the tour due to weather, you will be able to reschedule to another time/date, receive credit for a future event in the form of a transferable/never expiring gift card or a full refund.

Vegetarians, Allergies and Non-Alcoholic Drinks2017-01-16T20:51:55+00:00

Guests who are vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, or have other dietary restrictions, as well as non-alcoholic drinkers, can be accommodated on all our foodie offerings with advanced notice.

We actually are wonderful at accommodating dietary restrictions (except unfortunately those who do not consume dairy/cheese products) but must know IN ADVANCE so we can prepare adequately for those needs. In most cases guests will still experience LOCAL cuisine on the tour that fits in with their dietary needs EXCEPT in the instance of dairy/cheese restrictions. We are not able to substitute for dairy/cheese. (NOTE: the tour price will remain the same, even if non-alcoholic versions are provided. We will try to come as close to the original drink sans alcohol as possible but in cases such as rum infusion or wine we will sub with juice, soda or water).

Are refunds and ticket reschedules available?2017-01-16T20:50:29+00:00

Once purchased, ticket reschedules are allowed (free of charge) only based on availability and with at least 48 hours’ notice (except in special cases such as a tropical storm or hurricane, where we will accommodate guests).

Our tours offer limited space per guide to maintain their boutique feel and often sell out. There will be no reschedules or partial credit given for late arrivals, no shows or partial attendance. In lieu of refunds, Flavors offers transferable gift cards you can use in future tours, give to friends or even sell (they have no expiration date).

Please note we operate rain or shine so tours will NOT be cancelled simply because it is raining. If Flavors of St. Martin cancels a tour in the event of a dangerous flash flood, tropical storm or hurricane we will offer guests to reschedule, a gift certificate or a full refund.

Tours depart promptly and it is the guest’s responsibility to show up at the right location on time. Flavors of St. Martin reserves the right to cancel, change or substitute any service without prior notice.
