“Best tour of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We recently toured with Royston and it was the highlight of our trip. He takes you places no one else goes and you get to see the most amazing views. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. I honestly think he doesn't charge enough for what is included in the tour, so we tipped him well. We did get to meet Ashton in the beginning and had the choice of going with him in his A/C van, or touring with Royston in his open air, not as new van. Ashton was extremely personable and funny and I'm sure we would have enjoyed touring with him as well. We did decide to go with Royston because it seemed like more of an adventure, and we were all glad we did. We were extremely comfortable in his van, and with the windows removed, we got the most incredible breeze and were able to take fantastic pictures without having to get out. Of course we got out at the highlights, but it was so easy to take roadside pictures. I would love to go back to St. Kitt's, and if we do, I would definitely tour with Royston again because I know there is so much more he would be able to show us. Don't hesitate to book with him (and choose his van!).

“Roysten is Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We did the Volcano Tour with Roysten (or Roy as our kids called him) on Christmas Day 2012. Even though we had very hard rain our way down the hike, Roysten kept us safe and we had a great time. He is friendly knowledgeable (he seemed to know everyone we passed!) Plus we had sugar cane and saw some amazing views. Thank you Roysten, if you are ever in Flagstaff, we will take you on a hike here!!

“Toured with Royston's brother Ashton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Had a fabulous island tour with Ashton, Royston's brother, since Royston was already booked. Great day and what a nice guy. Shared not only all the historical info but personal stories as well about growing up on the island. We had a van full of ladies and we laughed and sang. What a great day!

“Book with Royston look no further!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Royston Tours ******* I wish I could give him 5+ because Royston certainly deserves it. We had a semi private tour with Royston as it was just us and one other couple. Royston went out of his way to make our day in St Kitts as memorable as possible. We started with an island tour with stops at: Romney Manor, Brimstone Hill Fortress lots of great photo ops everywhere on the island. Blacks Rocks was really cool we supported the local economy by doing a little shopping here at the kiosks. Leaving here one of the advantages of having an open air Toyota with no windows we could take photos everywhere and feed the donkeys with Sugar cane directly with the van which felt more like an ATV as Royston was able to take us to some very unique spots that other tour guides DONT GO! Royston was able to drive some off-road areas of the island for us to experience and take in some breathtaking views that I will never forget. After the Island Tour we headed back to Basseterre the capital to pick up lunch before heading to the Beach. We enjoyed the local cuisine "Roti" available with Chicken, Beef, or Conch. There was also a cooler with local soda, water and beer. His vehicle even had built in bottle openers very cool. Royston Rocks he was a complete gentleman the entire trip. He shared some history of the island but not to the point where it was information overload. After lunch we swam and snorkeled South Friars Beach it was beautiful. We still had a couple of hours before we had to get back to the ship. Royston never rushed us we snorkeled, swam and relaxed until we HAD to go back to the ship. Royston even provided beach chairs and an umbrella for us to use. The other couple didn't have snorkel gear - guess what Royston provided them with equipment. We basically didn't want this day to end in addition to having a fun, professional, educated tour guide it was an unbelievable value for what we received. On the way back to port once again he took us to some unique areas to take in some remarkable views of the island and look at some very expensive homes. Royston thanks so

“Super fun tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We took the tour of St Kitts with Roysten when our cruise ship was docked for the day at this lovely island.
Roysten is very conscientious time and of ensuring he gets all passengers back to the ship in well before the deadline. I know this is a very important factor to anyone taking a tour not affiliated with your cruise line!
We had a wonderful day and learned so much about the island, the time just flew by. The van we were on was comfortable and air conditioned. Roysten will take you to see many fascinating sites and you will have the opportunity to take breathtaking photos.
Thanks Roysten, we loved the tour
