Full description
The tour begins with pickup from the cruise terminal before a drive through the historical section of the St. Kitts capital Basseterre. Enrich your cultural experience with historical knowledge as your local guide provides an introduction to the city, founded in 1627 by French settlers. See the Independence Square where slaves were sold and Basseterre's churches. On leaving the city, stop at Romney Manor, formerly owned by Captain Samuel Jefferson, great-great-grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. Romney Manor is 25 acres of lush, tropical gardens, now home to the Caribelle Batik workshop and boutique. Next, enjoy the stunning views of mountains, valleys, and neighboring islands at the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, 800 feet above sea level. The tour then turns eastward toward the third destination: Timothy Hill, the gateway to the Southeast Peninsula. Take in a panoramic view of St. Kitts' sister isle Nevis and the majestic backdrop of the Frigate Bay valley before relaxing at the nearby Carambola Beach.

We had a very enjoyable and informative outing with Texas. Not only did he show us the usual highlights of St Kitts, but he complemented his tour with many additional stops. You learn a lot about fauna and botany, try, taste and enjoy the local fruits and herbs. All senses come into play. A highlight of St Kitts and highly recommended!

The guide was a former teacher and knew everything about "his" island. At times he even asked us again. (old teaching habit). We always had plenty of time to see everything and the tour was great and informative in every way. He can't do anything for the bad roads. Info: the tour was only in English. Since we were obviously the only guests booked, we had a private island tour, it didn't bother the guide, of course it didn't bother us either. Again a big compliment!
