“Rosevelt's Special Best Of St. Kitts/Panoramic Tour”
Before our cruise, I searched TripAdvisor and found this excursion by Rosevelt Taylor and the many positive reviews. Four of us took this tour on April 19, 2013. Rosevelt met us at the predetermined location near the terminal. We then boarded a high-top van with several other people.The van was comfortable and air conditioned. Rosevelt used a microphone system in the van to enable all aboard to clearly hear him during his descriptions of the various sights along the way. Rosevelt is very knowledgeable of both flora and fauna on the island. Stops on our route included his showing and thoroughly explaining to us various plants and flowers on the island. We toured Basseterre and saw the beautiful Cathedral. We then stopped at Rodney Manor and viewed the beautiful tropical gardens. Rosevelt explained many of the plants and flowers there. The women especially liked the Lipstick Tree! We also saw and had a presentation made to us on making the Caribelle Batik clothing and fabric. We purchased several beautiful items in the store there. This was very impressive. We next went to Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. What a magnificent view! Our tour continued through the island, while Rosevelt continuously described points of interest, picturesque villages, magnificent homes and breathtaking landscape, arriving at beautiful Friar's Bay Beach to spend some time there. While at the beach, we purchased a nice lunch at a Jamaican style beach place. A brief shower did not deter us from a truly wonderful time at this beach. Rosevelt was very accommodating in that several in our group decided that they wanted to go back to the ship instead of staying at the beach. He took them back, and then returned to the beach to bring us back. This tour was fantastic! Rosevelt is a great guy. I believe the price of the tour is very modest compared to the vast amount of information, experience and knowledge that Rosevelt has. St. Kitts is a very beautiful island, and I am glad that we chose Rosevelt as our guide. I would highly recommend him.

St. Kitts is a very beautiful island and rich with history that's parallel to Europe, America, Africa, India and the Caribbean. It's always good to have some one that can explain and bring that history to life.
It was a pleasure serving you. We are delighted you had a wonderful time.
On behalf of Island Paradise Tours, we say THANK YOU.
Thanks for your positive review.
Peace & Love
