We have pulled these from emails to us as well as from forums like Trip Advisor, The Antigua Forums and Cruise Critic.

If you are writing a positive review please include your name and email address or the hotel you stayed in just so people don’t think we write our own comments 🙂 You can find Eli the guy who started this company on Antigua Forums. For all of you Trip Advisor fans please give us a review by clicking this link. Say hi!
We don’t update our comments that often as we get so many great reviews. This one came in the other day and we actually blogged about it because it was so nice and they even called it The Best of My Life. Check it out on our blog by Clicking Here.
We had another two awesome reviews shortly afterwards that you can read by clicking here.
And another taken from Trip Advisor where they call it the Perfect Tour of a Perfect Gem. Read more here.
A lovely one describing the best trip ever can be read by clicking here.

Hi Eli, I want to thank you for an outstanding trip! JD and Chris were great. The only thing I could think to say at the end of the day other than thank-you was that they exceded my expectations. JD’s seamanship and knowledge of the waters was exceptional. Chris is both a local historian and naturalist. He was always sure to point out anything of interest. Chris guided me on the best snorkle trip I have ever experienced. He was always finding interesting sea life and corals and directing me to them. Both of JD and Chris did an excellent job of representing your company and providing Teri and I with many wonderful memories. My complements to the chef for the delicious lunch. The banana bread was fantastic! Best regards, Kirk

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour I had with you last week. It was a gorgeous day and I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful excursion. Our team of guides – JD, Alex and Tony – were all wonderful and so accomodating. I will recommend your services to anyone I know going to Antigua. I hope you are doing well and enjoying the paradise I miss already.

Subject: THANK YOU!!!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the great time we had on the Eco Tour. The three guys were fantastic and well, well worth the money. It was the best excursion of our entire 11-day cruise and six ports. You did exactly what you said you would do, and there were no unpleasant surprises. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have a real keeper in all three guys. I will be promoting you on the cruise critic boards as well as the Disney boards, although I don’t know of any plans for Disney to go back to Antigua yet. They certainly should!
Best wishes to you, your employees and your business – a class act all around!

hope to see you again,
alison and angelo debartoli
Just back from Antigua and had an amazing holiday!
Stayed at CocoBay (the best!) for a fabulous relaxing week!
One of the highlights of my trip was the ECO TOUR with ELI! Best ever! If you want to feel like you’re visiting family and want to really discover Antigua’s water, you should definitely book a day trip with ELI (ADVENTURE ANTIGUA). Great company, great snorkeling, great lunch (made by his neighbor!), great exploring and beautiful views! A pretty perfect day!! I wanted to share this with everybody so that nobody misses the chance to do this best ever boat trip! Eli’s Eco Tour is so great that I even told my rep all about it and she said that from now on she will definitely talk about it during her intro meeting! If anyone wants to see some pics or have any questions, feel free to write back or e-mail me.
Thank you again Eli and Andrew, my boyfriend and I (hey, we are now engaged! Colin proposed last Saturday morning on Fryes Beach!!!) had an excellent time with you!
Eli, Well, Mike and I “regrettably” arrived home late last night from our truly wonderful and (of course way too short) trip to your amazing island!! I just wanted to sincerely thank you for a beautiful and much-enjoyed tour on Monday. We both agreed that that experience was the highlight of our vacation. If and when we ever return, we would love to journey on one of your other tours. Both you and Kareem made the day one to never forget due to your invaluable knowledge and welcoming hospitality! Right now, I’m rushing out the door to eagerly get my pictures developed! Can’t wait! Once again, THANKS!!
PS: Keep my email address in case you ever come to the Northeastern United States. We’d love to have the opportunity to show YOU around!!

Took Eli’s tour last November. I have bad knees and have trouble even climbing stairs, so you can imagine my apprehension about getting in and out of the boat. On top of that, I too get seasick. However, the ride was wonderful and Eli and Frances pay special attention to special needs. Take Eli’s tour and enjoy. Even if you don’t snorkel, it’s the best.
Good morning! Here we are back in the chilly northeast dreaming of beautiful & hot Antigua. Thanks so much for giving us the best overview of the island. You are so very knowledgeable, informative and fun. We told our kids all about the adventure you gave us and they’re just about ready to swim down to see for themselves…we’ll send the neighbors too. Thanks again for all! Tell Andrew there’s a nasty nor’easter brewing here right now so the surf should be up down there shortly. Fondly, Karen Seeland.
We just got back from a week at BW. I’ll post a full trip report soon, but wanted to repeat what so many have said already. Thanks, Eli! What a great trip. I find that when I’m telling friends about Antigua, I’m repeating some of the things you told us on the tour. The sights were great and the personal attention was the best. And even though my wife decided not to snorkel at the reef, she felt comfortable and took some great pics.
We also went to Shirley Heights, took the Excellence to Barbuda and did some shopping in St. Johns. If you’re wondering what trips to take when you get there. Eli’s tour is THE must do on Antigua. Others were nice, but Eli makes the day a great one.
Thanks again, Keith from Kansas

What more can be said which hasn’t been said already regarding this tour: intensely personal and very informative. Eli is a walking book of knowledge who is more than willing to share important background on the island of Antigua without sounding as if it were routine or robotic. He dispenses information freely and with obvious enthusiasm as his primary care is to have everyone benefit from it and enjoy themselves while on tour. There is an unmistakable pride which is demonstrated along with a deep sense of personal commitment and love for his craft. Definitely not to be missed! To Eli: a BIG thank you. Keep up the impressive work you do.
We’re frequent cruisers, and have been to Antigua twice now. Just last week, we spent the day with Eli Fuller, and his assistant Ty, of Adventure Antigua. It was the best experience of that cruise, or of any cruise we’ve been on. Eli, who was born and raised in Antigua, and educated in Florida, takes small groups of people to the areas he used to explore growing up. We got a lenghthy tour of Antigua’s shore and some of the off-shore islands, learned some history of the island, did some off-the-boat snorkeling on a dense coral reef, had a wonderful, homemade picnic on a deserted beach, climbed Hell’s Gate, and hiked and explored Bird Island. Hell’s Gate was amazing – a small limestone island in the middle of the sea, there are tunnels, swirling tidal pools, and a natural landbridge. It’s just right to make you feel adventurous and good about your abilities, even if you aren’t particularly athletic! Beverages through out the day included water, guava and tamarind juice, something we’ve never had before, and Eli’s own special rum punch. We’re already booked on another cruise for next year, and we so enjoyed our day with Eli and Ty that we’ve already been in touch with them again, for a repeat adventure. This is a great way to see and learn about the area, and Eli’s a great guy. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions – we’re now big Adventure Antigua fans!
