Lloyd was an incredible guide and host during our time in Antigua! He was a wealth of information and drove us around on some additional excursions as well. Don't look any further....these guys are what you're looking for!
Amazing tour! Must do!!

My boyfriend and I decided to visit Antigua for our 1 year anniversary. We stayed at our resort majority of the time but my boyfriend was adamant to learn about this history of the island so we decided to do a tour. Not sure if god was on our side but we were blessed to have Lloyd and Tracy as our tour guides. Lloyd is extremely knowledgeable about the island and had so much information that we never knew about. My boyfriend and I were so intrigued by the history. Lloyd and Tracy were both extremely accommodating and took us to amazing historical sites. I highly recommend using them as your tour guides in Antigua. The island if full of history and they will ensure you learn much and enjoy yourself at the same time!
Lloyd will change your life!

We read the reviews and they brought us to LLOYD!!! My husband and I decided VERY LAST MINUTE to do a day trip around Antigua and lots of reviews mentioned the name Lloyd, so that's who we requested and thank goodness we did! First, he warned us that our chosen day was an Antiguan holiday (so some things could be closed or areas congested) but assured us that our "must haves" would be doable if we were still interested in doing some exploring. I am so happy we did! Lloyd felt like an old friend as soon as he picked us up. Being a local, he knew the ins and outs of the island and showed us EVERYTHING. We started out at Stingray City and then went to Devil's Bridge (where he took pictures for us!). Because our snorkeling adventure was closed for the holiday, he took us to a local beach where we were welcomed by a family preparing fungie (a classic Antiguan dish). He also took us to Nelson's Dockyard, where it was yacht week, for lunch. He drove us all over the island bc I could not get enough of the scenery and the vibes. He introduced us to the black pineapple and really gave us a local's look at what it's like to live there. It is now my retirement dream location

Lloyd is the man! My husband and I were on the island for our honeymoon and dispute covid going on , Lloyd took us on an amazing and safe Private taxi tour , covid free tour of the island. We did all the local stops and had an amazing lunch, Lloyd is your man to go to for a great tour and if you want to feel like a local! He even made sure I got to try the island Black Pineapple that is one of their special and yummy fresh fruits, thank you again Lloyd we can not wait to come back. Tour was ten out of ten. great day was had, thank you again , love MR AND MRS KAIDER
Brilliant tour even in bad weather

Very informative and interesting tour. Lloyd was friendly and knowledgeable, full of little facts about the island as well as personal insights. We really got a feel for the place and it's history.

It was a very rainy day which he made entertaining. We ended the tour at Shirley Heights in the middle of a big storm where we were basically inside a cloud so the visibility was zero, which was kind of hilarious but he helped make the best of it! I didn't know what to expect of Dow's Hill as I hadn't read much about it, but the sound and light show helped draw together all the parts of the island's history and the views outside were lovely.

The private nature of the tour was nice as we didn't feel at all rushed and had plenty of time to ask questions, so it was worth going for this over a cheaper group tour. Lunch at Nelsons Dockyard was also great. Lloyd mentioned he wanted to take us for local food but the weather was too wet for the open air restaurant he had in mind - we were happy with what we had anyway.
Great Tour and Guide

We had a great time on this tour! Lloyd was wonderful - knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. He served as our tour guide, airport transfers, and taxi during our time in Antigua so we ended up seeing him a lot during our trip. He was incredibly helpful and helped make our time in Antigua awesome. Highly recommend!
