Excursion Description:

Enjoy the view of riding on an open-top double decker bus.  Drive from Philipsburg,  the Dutch capital of St. Maarten, past the Great Salt Pond and through the countryside. Continue sightseeing across the hill to the other side of the island, where you will stop at a local Rum Distillery and hear some pirate stories and a free tasting of various flavors of rum. Back on board the Double Decker, you will pass through St. Maartens latest infrastructure addition, the Causeway Swing Bridge, where you can spot lovely sailboats or magnificent Mega Yachts on the lagoon, depending on the time of year.  Arriving at Maho you may watch for airplanes overhead as they are landing. The journey will proceed across the south for views of Simpson Bay Lagoon.  The next stop is at the Italian ice cream factory where you will enjoy a free ride on the vintage carousel.  Your experience concludes with a tasting of official Old Amsterdam Gouda Cheese.
