What people are saying about Basseterre

Really great tour with locals. Lunch was excellent I had the Grouper my husband had chicken. People were really nice and respectful of the time we needed to be back to the ship. Ps they are 1 hour ahead of ship time when we arrived but they made sure we caught the next boat to the tour with plenty of time to spare. We highly recommend this excursion.

The crew and beach was wonderful. Only issue was Carnival cruises stay on ship time with was not island time so we missed our first pick up time but the crew picked us us at the later time. Know your times before you book

This was a great excursion. The ride over to Nevis was swift and enjoyable. The tour of the island was excellent and very interesting and lunch was delicious. Very enjoyable couple of hours on the beach.

The whole experience was incredible and I feel like the value can’t be beat. My favorite part was the tour of Nevis hosted my Smoothie, we loved his singing, personality and charm.
