Owner description: Greg was born and brought up on St. Kitts and Nevis and following his return home from College in Nova Scotia Canada in 1980, started working at his Parents hotel, the Ocean Terrace Inn, with one of his jobs being to do tours for the hotels guests. While growing up on St. Kitts, Greg's parents became leaders in the local Tourism Industry, starting one of the first hotels in the islands, with Greg's Dad, eventually receiving the "Order of the British Empire" (OBE), from the St. Kitts Government for his outstanding achievements in local Industry. This has given Greg a unique grounding as well as a deep sense of understanding for his home country and coupled with his tourism training abroad, has allowed him to become one of leading and longest serving tour guides in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Greg and his team of certified Tour Guides have won many awards from the Tourism Authority for their businesses high standards of service. From the very beginning Greg has used modified, 4X4 Land Rovers to do his "unique" island Safaris with. Being specially made, the 8 Land Rovers he uses today, are all open sided with mostly forward facing, stadium orientated seating, that provide his guests with the best way to experience exploring beyond the shores of St. Kitts and Nevis. Greg's Safaris is the only tour company in the Federation that uses 4X4 Land Rovers for touring on both islands! For your private, half days hiking pleasure, Greg has created two "unique looped hiking trails", one at the Phillips Mountain Valley (2 miles long), and at the other at the Wingfield River Valley (2 1/2 miles long), on St. Kitts. His company is also the only one on St. Kitts to offer driving tours from coast to coast through the lushly forested interior and while traveling through the mountains his guests would have access to a private 5 acre "mountain top property", perched1000 feet sea level, a place of cool temperatures and breathtaking views, that can only be experienced on a "one of kind" 4X4 Safari Tour with him and his guides. Greg is one of the founding members of the St. Christopher National Trust and as well, sits on the Central Forest Reserve National Park Committee. He is also a Life Member of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Brimstone Hill National Park and is also part owner of Sky Safaris, a company he started in 2009.

We took the half day rainforest tour that included Romney Manor. It was great! After a visit to the Caribelle Batik store that is an interesting experience. We toured the old sugar factory and then walked into the rainforest. Our guide (Amoni) was very knowledgeable and a real pleasant fellow. He explained all of the trees and plants. During our... More

We just came back from St. Kitts and one of the activities that we did was to go Zip lining through the rain forest. Normally I'm a bit skeptical of places not within the jurisdiction of United States for safety reason...but this place was fantastic. The guides....Hollywood and Johnny Walker (their "stage names") were funny, friendly and just simply wonderful.... More

Didn't have a pre-arranged tour, but heard that Greg's Tours did a Rainforest Hike. We showed up at the arrival gate and asked around. Greg put us with an existing small group. Our guide loaded us up on the back of a 4x4. He gave great background on the island and gave us a very informative hike up the mountainside... More

We did the jeep tour and rainforest hike with Cas. The tour of the island was very interesting and then we went off road to get to the rainforest hike. The terrain is bumpy and the jeep was old and a little uncomfortable. Cas was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area, plants and animals. Be warned... More

We were on a cruise so just had limited time on St.Kitts. I booked weeks in advance and although the tour we wanted was not available Greg offered us an alternative which we accepted and he confirmed. Unfortunately I cannot rate Greg on his apparently wonderful knowledge and excellent tours (as read about on trip advisor) because when we turned... More

We actually went in the truck with Greg (the owner). He was an amazing tour guide and knew so much about the island. We went to places I'd never go to by myself. The trucks are old, but okay. The ride through the rainforest can be a bit rough. The day we visited the beach, the water was very rough.... More

We had a wonderful rainforest hike with Greg! He was very knowledgeable and excited to share his beautiful country with us. He took the time to ensure that we noticed all of the beauty around us, down to the tiniest flower and sounds of the rainforest.

We went on Greg's Safaris on October 27th. Our guide, Anil, was wonderful. My favorite part was driving through the fields down the mountain. We went through local areas and into the rain forest. At the end we went to the beach. Previously, some people had complained about another beach Greg went to. The day we went he said it... More

We visited St Kitts in early Oct of this year and took this tour arranged through our ship.

We went on the safari and beach tour excursion offered on the ship. The safari part was just ok. We had the jeep with the bench seats along the sides instead of facing forward.
