Petit Piton Climb was a fantastic experience. Both our driver and guide were excellent. The driver was ready and waiting for us at 7 as planned and was quite conscientious about ensuring we were comfortable. Along the way he provided some excellent insight about St. Lucia in general and the various communities we passed through. Similarly, our hike guide was good at accommodating the needs of our family.
As you mentioned, it is a strenuous experience (a few stiff muscles today!) and was difficult for my daughter, but our guide was good about setting a moderate pace, providing climbing tips, and identifying appropriate rest areas. We were up and down in just over the estimated 5 hours. It was a very rewarding accomplishment and something I hope the family in particular can draw on when facing future challenges.
I would not hesitate to recommend these individuals, this excursion and your service to anyone who asked or expressed an interest. Your responsiveness to my inquiry and provision of a realistic expectation for the hike (your descriptions were right on) were also much appreciated. This is our 7th visit to the island in as many years and I will certainly look to your company for future excursions when we return.
