This is a spectacular tour operator. We had a 3 night/4 day safari package with Heritage in late May, and I can't say enough nice things about them. Our tour guides Zane, John and Stephan (I hope I have the spellings of the names right) were spectacular. You couldn't have asked for more acomodating, personable, friendly and knowledgeable people to take us around to see the wildlife areas.

We also got a real kick out of just being in the small community of St. Lucia. It is such a cute town, with great restaurants and friendly people everywhere. We also loved the "naughty monkeys"--even when they jumped on our backpack and stole a banana, or when we were eating a picnic lunch on one of the tours and about a dozen monkeys were encircled around us, ready to swoop down and steal a dinner roll.

We loved staying at the Heritage House. The staff there is very warm and welcoming, and the snacks that were available 24/7 were incredible! Good smells were always coming out of the kitchen. I want the date balls and muffin recipes!

Everything about this tour was a incredible experience, and will serve for some very special memories that we will always treasure.

We Had a fantastic stay. Heritage lodge was lovely, So clean, quiet and very well placed for walking to the main street for a meal and drinks. Breakfast was brilliant. The Tours we took were breath taking and our Guide David looked after us so well, He couldn't have been better. The only mistake we made was not to plan 3 or 4 days extra to explore on our own. The star of our stay how ever was Sylvester the House cat who normally keeps himself to himself. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our game drive with David as our guide. We were picked up at 5am and throughout the drive David was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide displaying true passion for nature. He was patient to answer all our questions and a rich source of information. We learned so much about the different animals and their habits, spotted many different birds and learned about different herbs and traditional plants. It was a truly magical experience. Thank you David from Heritage tours!

I can't say enough about the time we spent with Heritage Tours. We did the hippo and croc late afternoon tour as well as the full day safari and wetlands tour. The guides were top notch. David in particular was an absolute pleasure to have as a guide. I loved that he spotted a dung beetle and chameleon along the road that we could hold as well as spotting the big game for us. He was the perfect driver and guide. You could tell he has been doing this a long time. Our night drive had to be cancelled because of heavy rain and we had no trouble at all getting a refund. Thanks to the whole Heritage tours team for making our time with you the best part of our whole trip.
