What people are saying about Basseterre

We loved this tour!! All our guides were great from the boat ride over to the tour bus with smoothy who shared tons of information and even sang Nevis’s National anthem to us! Pinney beach was beautiful and the included lunch was terrific, served in a beautiful ocean front setting! The return trip was the cherry on top where we were treated to some unexpected stops along the shoreline and our 4 boys were given a chance to jump from the top of the boat! So pleased we went with this tour company - fantastic!
