Immerse yourself in the vibrant charm of a dual-nation island from an open-air double-decker bus, crossing through the Dutch and French territories. Your journey begins in the bustling Dutch hub of Phillipsburg, on an island that harmoniously blends Dutch and French cultures since 1648.

Your route meanders past the intriguing Great Salt Pond, through resplendent countryside, charming hamlets and tranquil fishing villages, culminating at Marigot. At this photo-stop, immerse yourself in a distinctly European atmosphere, brimming with delightful boutiques, inviting sidewalk cafes, and lively open-air waterside markets.


As we return to the Dutch side, a photo-stop at Maho Beach awaits, here you can witness planes making a dramatic low-flying descent to land at the Caribbean’s most striking airport. Afterwards, unwind at a local distillery where you will be greeted with a St. Maarten Rhum Punch. Indulge in the tasting of renowned commercial rums by Topper's, and also explore their handcrafted specialty rums—exclusively available at the distillery—from the Rhum Tap. A delicious sample of Rhum Cake also awaits.

Your final photo-stop is the panoramic Bell’s Lookout Point, offering wonderful views of luxurious mega yachts moored in the serene Simpson Bay Lagoon.
