Booked as a tour off of a cruise ship, we were picked up and after a short tour around town, were whisked off to the Clay Villa Plantation. Owned and operated as a family home, the owners were gracious and hospitable. The grounds are well maintained with lots of interesting plants and the addition of their adopted animals made the...

We took a tour of the plantation as an excursion from a cruise ship. We arrived in the morning and it was hot and humid, but it was so beautiful that we didn't mind the climate. The landscape was well tended including the 250 year old mango trees as well as the newly planted flowers and Ixoras they added to... More

This is a great place to see if you are in St. Kitts. We chose it as our one place to see since we were there for the day only on a cruise. 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... More

I went on this tour largely due to the positive trip adviser reviews and I'm really glad i did! The house was gorgeous and the home made rum punch was probably the best drink I had in the Caribbean. Phillip, you need to bottle and sell that. My only advice would be to contact them directly as opposed to organizing... More

We were on a cruise ship and wanted an excursion to a beach. But the only one left was an excursion to a plantation house followed by a beach afterwards. I'm so glad we took it, because Clay Villa was much BETTER than the beach! Although we were a large party, everything was well ordered and we were split up... More

I am a repeat visitor to the island and I recently spent 3 weeks on it. I am enthralled and excited to go back and revisit attractions/places as well as new ones. One such place is Clay Villa. This is my 5th visit and I would highly recommend. I am always very impressed every time I walk up to the... More

We contacted Bridget about taking a tour - incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and then had the rare luck to have a great conversation with her after we arrived and were waiting for others to join the tour. The tour was very, very interesting and Philip easy to ask questions of and his love of the place and the animals... More

This excursion was the best of our entire cruise trip to the southern Caribbean. The Plantation was so different from what we expected. We enjoyed everything about it….the tour by Philip, the magnificent gardens, the interesting and gorgeous plantation home, the salt water pool, the incredible views, monkeys, the history of the plantation, the fish pond, parakeets…etc etc. It was...

Just got back from our Royal Caribbean cruise and want to say this was our best shore excursion to date. The plantation is beautiful, Phillip was a great guide - it's not often you get a tour from the owner himself, tons of information and funny at the same time. This is not what I expected - it was SO... More
