David was our tour guide and it was my husband, myself, and one other couple. Let me say this hike was amazing and a once and life time experience. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that is not in decent physical shape. It took us 2 hours up and 2 hours down. David said we were close to beating record... More

My husband and I and my 11 and 12 year old daughter and niece hiked with Al in the rainforest in Wingfield Estate area and it was amazing! Al showed us all kinds of stuff - all the natural things he uses to make shampoo, teas for various ailments and food. He kept us engaged the entire time, saying that... More

We took the rainforest tour with David while in St. Kitts on a cruise stop. It was very easy getting off the ship and finding the meeting place we were told to go to. After everyone met up we were off on our tour. David explained everything we were seeing along the way. We also made stops to take pictures.... More

I liked the experience, from the breathtaking views to the showcase of island culture! People are friendly and our tour guide, Mr David Swanston, was fun and eager to share tons of information about Kittitian life in the island.

This tour was the hardest thing I ever have ever done. The views at the top were amazing but it is something I will never do again. I was the last one down and was the slowest. The guide (Al) kept checking on me and helped when needed, but once the group was well ahead of us and out of... More

I took this tour as a ship's Excursion off the Adventure of the Seas. We wanted to do the Volcano hike, but the cruise line stopped offering that option as too many passengers found it to be too demanding. Instead we visited the Romney Sugar Cane Plantation. Everything about the tour was professional and delivered as advertised. As a tour... More

Did this tour on a Thompson Cruise ship of the Caribbean. David was the guide and was fantastic. He lives in the rain forest and his knowledge of the plants and trees, including their medical uses was great. This tour is a must see and he even provided home made drinks and snacks made by his wife and him. Recommended... More

We took the tour during a cruise stop in St-Kitts. As other have mentioned, David who was our guide, was exceptional. The walk trough the rain forest was extremely interesting. One thing that should be noted, is the fact that the walk ends at the end of the trail and you need to go back in the same trail. It... More

David is exceptionally knowledgeable. He took us through the rainforest and fascinated us with facts about the flora and fauna. We were only in St. Kitts for a few hours, but we're planning on gong back for a week soon. When we do that, David will be the only guide we will hire. We want to go with him to... More

I will start by saying David was a true professional and picked us up right outside the cruise port as he said he would. We boarded the van and met some others that were off to do this adventure with us. David told us about the island as we drove through. The hike is approximately 3 miles up and down... More
