We made arrangements directly with Phillip for a tour of the Plantation and Beach. We were picked up by Gordon at the cruise port. Phillip was very friendly and the tour was very interesting. He had some interesting stories of his life and how he ended up in St Kitts. The gardens were lovely and colorful. There is a beautiful... More

From my first review on how to get there: Reserve Your Tour: First thing, make reservations via email. Philip responded same day to our email request for a tour. This is important, if you just show up like some people did you may have to wait for the next scheduled tour. The cost was $15USD/person. Getting There: Second thing, don't... More

We booked the Beyond the Ordinary tour after reading reviews on trip advisor. It is nice to deal with the owner of a site, Phillip Hurd. He clearly works hard to make his site and tour worth the money. The day started off rough with the cruise ship announcing our berth was taken by a ship the couldn't leave the... More

All emails were answered promptly and the tour was just as promised. Our cab driver, Julian, met us when we got off the ship. He drove us... More

On a recent cruise I booked a tour to Clay Villa Plantation House and Gardens, they had several tours to choose from and I chose the Best of St Kitts tour. We were met at the pier by a young man holding a sign with our name and then led to a taxi and introduced to our driver Raphael Jacobs.... More

I booked a trip to see Clay Villa directly with the owners Philip Hurd. There was great communication throughout . You can just visit the villa for 15 dollars each or arrange for other sightseeing attractions or a visit to the beach to make a complete day of it.All taxis will be arranged for you so you can have a...

We were on a cruise ship and one of our stops was in St. Kitts. We decided to do some research prior to us stopping in St. Kitts. This is where we found Clay Villa on trip advisor and we emailed him. He arranged the island tour for us , Oliver was our guide. The gardens are the most magnificent... More
