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.

In reading some of the terrible reviews, my wife and I were completely astonished. We took the tour with Greg and it was the highlight of our cruise. We enjoyed not only his thorough knowledge of the island's history, culture, and socioeconomic climate, his love of his homeland came through with an endearing quality not often seen these days. I...

I went on this excursion from Carnival Glory and was so happy that I did! Greg and the guides are very informative of the history of St. Kitts and it was very cool meandering through the rain forest and down the coast. It was really cool to get such a great tour and learn something about the history of the... More

Excellent trip, top host and good vehicles. Very knowledgable & informative, seen beautiful parts of the island that we wouldn't have seen - definitely see areas that only a Jeep can get you to!! Travelling as a party of 6 & 3 generations ageing from 9 years to 69, enjoyed by all. Well worth going on this trip!

We took this excursion booked from a Disney Cruise. We were so glad we did. The tour of the island was great and the beach they took us too was gorgeous. (Although I invite people to come to Lake Michigan to see our sand!) The only thing I warn people of is that a young boy came up to me... More

He took his time answering questions and showing us anything that peaked our interests. His knowledge of the island is outstanding. We spent an hour at a... More

Our group of ten retired teachers had booked this excursion online in advance of our cruise on Royal Caribbean. This was our first visit to St. Kitts, and we really enjoyed our safari with Greg as our driver/guide. He is very knowledgeable as a native of the island, and gave us some great views along with some history of the... More

On the hilltop where we stopped for pics, Greg was incredible, he kept the interesting history & facts coming. For my 1st cruise, some... More

Wow, what a hike. This is an experience you won't forget. Hiking uphill to the top of the mountain, through the rainforest. Surrounded by vegetation and a canopy you can't believe. The guides were fantastic, and the view from the top looking down into the crater was spectacular. If was even fun on the way down, as it started raining... More

We booked this excursion through Celebrity Cruise Line. It was a 4x4 Island Safari and Beach Tour in St Kitts. Informative, comfortable, and extensive tour of St Kitts. Highly recommend.
