Climbing Gros Piton with these guys was tough but really fun. It's a full on climb but the views are definitely worth it, and the sense of achievement. My guide was Barney and he was a dude. He knew exactly how to get me to the top of that mountain. He told me after what psychology tricks he was using... More

Only made it 2/3 of the way. I'm in pretty good shape too! Might have been the humidity.... Plan on it taking the ENTIRE day.

Super views from any angle. Superman flew between the Pitons in Superman II. Locals are very proud to share this information.

These mountains truly are a wonder of the world. They were on my bucket list and they should be on yours, too.

First of all, I am going to issue a warning deciding to do this you will not get when booking it. IF YOU HAVE A HEART CONDITION, DIABETIC, ASTHMA, KNEE OR LEG PROBLEMS OR HAVE NOT LIVED IN A GYM THIS IS NOT THE TOUR FOR YOU AND IT IS HIGHLY DANGEROUS TO ATTEMPT. We booked the tour through the...

A "must do" if in the Soufriere area of the Island. It was a great accomplishment to make it all the way, but I was stiff for a couple of days after the climb. Wear appropriate shoes, bring water and a snack and hike early in the morning. Beautiful views! Helpful guide, worth the small fee.

It was a two hour drive there and two hours back from the Rodney Bay area, and the road was intense. If you get motion sick, DO NOT GO. My wife... More
