Alison, thank you so much for setting up our day in St. Lucia. Trevor was wonderful and he made sure we saw how beautiful the island was. I’ve always said St. Lucia was my favorite Caribbean island, and this trip didn’t change my feelings. Gail Rodenhauser who was with me loved the island as well. I think she is in the process of booking an extended family vacation. The day worked out perfectly for us. We were very impressed and Again, thank you so much for setting up our day

Barefoot Holidays a Virtuoso On-Site in St. Lucia-I used them this summer for a honeymoon couple, and they were fantastic. My clients did a catamaran sail and then a tour of a chocolate plantation followed by a chocolate tasting and the opportunity to make their own chocolate bars. They reply to inquiries promptly and are happy to answer all questions. In addition to their tours, they can arrange transfers and hotels. They are a wealth of information on the island, and if you have a specific hotel question, about the property, renovations, management, etc, they have the scoop.

Camilla listened to our dissatisfactions and did her best to improve our mood and to help in the transfer. Without her we truly do not know how things would have worked out. She was able to organize the honeymoon package with Sandals Resort and even threw in an another great surprise. She made the remaining of our trip memorable. We booked an excursion with her and it surpassed our expectations. She’s very professional and knowledgeable. We felt that we were in good hands. We will deal with Air Transat again simply because of how Camilla handled the situation. Even if not all tour representatives are like Camilla, she gave us confidence in the company. We felt it important to let you know of how she surpassed our expectations and made our stay in St.Lucia extraordinary. In general, people are quick to underline their discontent but in this case we wanted to highlight how one person turned a disappointment into a memorable moment. Thank you Camilla.

Thank you so much, Nadia, for your incredible service. I truly appreciate this as she is a VIP client and hope not too demanding. I do appreciate your service more than you can imagine I also will be in contact with you again! Happy New Year

I just wanted to say Thank you so so much for the most incredible week in St Lucia, it was such fun and you were all amazing thank you, I am awfully proud to have you guys on the ground looking after our guests! You really did pull out the stops and you were very generous from start to finish with your lovely friendly emails Esther (detective work from Start), and Cheryl looking after us every day in St Lucia! The Helicopter Ride with incredible and will be in our minds for the rest of our lives thank you! It was just us 4 so we felt like serious VIP’s and arrived in such style!! We were grinning from ear to ear and have some great photos. Cheryl you were amazing thank you, and made us feel so welcome and looked after us! Nothing was too much trouble and everything you organised for us went perfectly, we loved the boat trip thank you. All recommendations and plans were super and seamless! Stan the Man and Mr Johnson were also excellent so please can you thank them too! Also the lovely lady who greeted us at the airport with the cold water and cold towel, what a lovely welcome thank you, So nice to have a smiley face on arrival and to look after us so well. We thoroughly enjoyed the mud bath too – Gosh it was funny! I can certainly see why you recommend it! Gosh a serious reality check coming home now, as it’s raining at present and cold – We were all so sorry to leave St Lucia! Take Care and thank you so much and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

I just thought I’d drop you a note to say thank you for the transfer – it was nice to see my name at arrivals after getting off the flight to Saint Lucia! Both Candice and Samuel our driver were great – We also decided to take the Land & Sea tour with you which we both enjoyed very much. Thanks so much for making our time in Saint Lucia even more memorable!
– Tony & Emma Runeckles, United Kingdom
Dear Alison Thanks in meeting our requests for the trips that we made with your company and the private transfers to the hotel – that certainly was the icing on the cake for us (there were certainly some envious people at the hotel who saw us both being picked up at the airport and also being dropped off again). You certainly convey a very professional attitude to your work but at the same time are very friendly & welcoming to your guests …. I would like to assure you that when we return to St Lucia we will certainly give Barefoot Holidays very serious consideration.
– Paul & Donna McLean, Scotland
In recognition of your consistent high ratings and five-star reviews from Viator travelers, you have earned “Top Rated on Viator” status. Congratulations!! … you and your staff do the hard work everyday of meeting & greeting clients and providing them with the best experiences possible.
– Barrie Seidenberg, CEO, Viator Inc
Extramile, Inc. has traveled the world conducting corporate travel incentive programs for the past 12 years, and has worked with dozens of DMCs. What a pleasure it was to work with the professional staff of Barefoot Holidays.
Resort selection, meals, activities, parties, and even the décor and entertainment recommendations were handled perfectly! The execution of our program went off without a hitch, and we were pleased to see that when we made changes, Barefoot Holidays was nimble enough to make a few calls and quickly adapt to our requests.
We even did our own research to discover that the principal owner of Barefoot Holidays, Erwin Louisy, is well respected thoughout the island with an impeccable reputation. She has been handling groups for over 25 years (everyone knows her, all feedback is positive).There is no doubt in my mind that for future St. Lucia programs we will once again use Barefoot Holiday’s services.
Thanks to Sharon Eugene and the rest of the Barefoot Holiday staff – we definitely rank this company to be one of the top DMC’s we’ve ever worked with.
– Michael Yaccino, President, Extramile Inc.
It was great meeting you at the festival. I was surprised by you taking the initiative and time out of your schedule to come back stage to personally meet me and go over our following day travel details. I was even more impressed that you came to see us off at the airport.
In addition, with my arrival being a few days earlier than the rest of my staff, it was fantastic to see a familiar face each day at the airport with Ms. Verna Wilson. She put me at ease right away. Greeted me by name, made sure that I was able to quickly meet up with my staff who all arrived on different flights and even assisted with one of our last bags by coordinating and getting it on a helicopter and to our resort in the minimum time. I’M IMPRESSED! You can definitely bet that you’ll be my first call when I return to St. Lucia. Thank you so much!
– David ‘5-1’ Norman, Tour Manager – John Legend
We just want to thank Barefoot Holidays St.Lucia and their amazing team for their hard work and attention to detail. Nadia worked so hard to give us our dream wedding, as well as a number of spectacular tours of St. Lucia. It was the most memorable vacation we could have imagined. We will be returning and using Barefoot Holidays to make that one just as memorable. Thank You Barefoot Holidays!

We had a wonderful experience on the Soufriere Island Delight with Samuel our guide, he was delightful! The excursion was great and we enjoyed seeing so much of the island. Samuel stopped several times for photo opportunities, we also stopped at a cassava bakery, purchased cakes and tasted bananas from a roadside vendor. We can’t say enough about taking a small group shore excursion – We smiled as we joined a small personal group!
We had one of our best vacations EVER…thanks to the professional manner in which Cheryl performed. She was very helpful and informative about all excursions – Even with our constant questions, she maintained a jovial and pleasant manner at all times. A vacation away from all worries thanks to Cheryl and your company – We will surely consider coming back to your beautiful island.

Back in Switzerland and I do not want to lose any time to mail you my deepest THANKS for the day tour you organized for us on April 25. The reception of your friendly staff, the guides, the tour, the WHARF and the steel band and dancing group were just great and everybody was satisfied. You touched in all your arrangements exactly our needs. St. Lucia was the best stop on our cruise and I know some of our clients now intend to come back to your lovely island for a longer holiday. YOU DID IT !! Again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, you made our stay on St.Lucia a perfect one.
– Rolf, Switzerland
Cheryl-We would like thank you for being a great host on our first trip to St. Lucia and making us feel very welcome. The trips you booked for us were great and your personal service and attention was very warm and professional.

Dear Erwin, It was nice meeting you finally. I would like to thank you very much for all your help and courtesies you have extended to us during our stay in St.Lucia. I also would like to mention that the organisation of the transfers for CHA were fantastic. Usually I end up taking taxis during these events because I hate to wait, but this time there was not one time i needed to call one. Congratulations! Fantastic Job! Warm Regards
– Irene, Canada
Dear Erwin,Alison and Sharon Thank you all for helping arrange my trip to St.Lucia last week. It was perfectly seamless, thanks to your organization. Sharon, I really appreciate you taking me to my site inspections and appreciate the insight you gave me on the island and the properties. I also appreciate you all for setting up the day sail on Sunday, which allowed me to experience the volcano, botanical gardens and all the island has to offer. We look forward to increasing our business to the island and to our partnership. Thanks

Dear Sharon, Just wanted to thank you so so much for all of your hard work and help during the Galderma programme. It really was a huge success and everyone had a great time. The catamaran cruise and the rum punch are already legendary! I also wanted to thank you so much for all of your effort with British Airways. ……If you are ever in England make sure you do give me a call and I’d be happy to show you the same hospitality that you showed to me, Jo and the whole group. ….thanks to Nadia, Kim, Erwin and the rest of your team who worked on the event. Very best wishes Sally

Good Morning Sharon and Erwin Ladies, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help and patience in assisting me with the WISN Group. On our trip back to the cruise terminal the WISN staff were raving about how wonderful the day went. It could not have happened without the help of you and your team. I am looking forward to working with you all again in the near future. Warm Regards
– Dale Scantlebury, Sunlink

Hi, we cannot begin to thank you for all you did to make our 2007 Red Robin President’s Club the trip of a lifetime. You and your staff were flawless! I know it was a very demanding and difficult program but you far exceeded my expectations. We BLEW them away! This was a trip that they will never forget and the memories will be with them forever. Thanks for making it all happen…I could not have done it without you.
– Amy Falko, Red Robin Group
I am writing to tell you that the holiday I had through Barefoot Holidays was fantastic. My wife and I stayed at the Coconut Bay Resort in St.Lucia and had a fantastic time, but the main reason I am writing to tell you this is because it was mostly made possible because of your service representative Candice. Candice made our trip more than memorable with her advice in excursion planning and overall knowledge of the island and our surroundings. My wife and I have travelled to many tropical destinations and believe me when I say Candice is one of those few people who are willing to go out of their way to make sure someone’s trip is a memorable one. To her I would like to extend my personal thanks and also I would like for her and her superiors to realise what a special person she really is. Thanks again and all the Best.
– Sandra and Glen Franzee
Thank you and Sharon for all your efforts in making our time on your beautiful island…a wonderful experience “ From the quality of our motor coach, the timeliness of our luggage moves, to the wonderful day on the catamaran, the assistance in the rental of our jeeps, and last but not least, the professionalism and care provided by you and your Sharon, made our company and our customers extremely happy. St.Lucia is very special. You have not seen the last of Uniglobe Bradley Travel.

Thank you so much for your time and hospitality during our INTRIA site inspection. We loved St.Lucia and all it has to offer. I look forward to working with you and seeing you again in January.

Very many thanks for the conscientious way that Barefoot Holidays looked after our interests during our visit to St.Lucia recently. The special attention you gave to our group was very much appreciated and made our stay all the more memorable.
– Peter, Essex County Cricket Club, UK
We just wanted to compliment you all once again on the warm reception and fine service we enjoyed while on our recent visit to St.Lucia. We wanted especially to recognize the hospitality and efforts of our consultant Cheryl.She was warm, friendly, available and went way beyond the call of duty to replace a special souvenir I had lost. Please pass along our thanks again. She made our first visit to St.Lucia extra special.
– Dick and Marlene Heidebrecht, Niagra, Canada
We would like to express our thanks to you and your team for all your assistance in the period during the lead up to Cricket World Cup as well as during the event. St. Lucia posed our biggest challenge with regards to ground transportations particularly on the Semi Final day where there were hundreds of people to move. With all the last minute challenges that we had to deal with, your staff were all extremely helpful and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. From our perspective the event was a great success in terms of travel and accommodation and arrangements for teams, officials and supporters. This is in no small part due to the helpfulness and the enthusiasm of our suppliers such as yourselves. Thanks once again for all your help and support before and during the event.
– The Cricket Logistics Team
Many thanks for the excellent service provided by your staff at Barefoot Holidays. The beautiful girls were a big hit with the ALICO guests, especially their in depth knowledge of St.Lucia and the botanical gardens, as well as their charming personalities. Our gratitude to you also, for the planning of the tour. The limbo dancers were wonderful, full of personality and all kinds of tricks- a good choice.
