“Great time & would recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Elvis, Go-go, and Ivan were all great. We were met at the ship as promised (RCCL) and taken to their location. Had a wonderful ride through the paths on the island. My wife and I had never been on an ATV but had no problems. So, the ATV part was great, with one exception; get some new tires! The things were so bald it was ridiculous. My wife slid off the path into a small tree at a slow rate of speed, thankfully! The beach was very nice, but overcrowded and there was a wait for food so we ate at the bar. The food was pricy but good. Bring some beach towels because seats were few and far between. Elvis was an awesome van driver and even waited for some missing people for an extra 15 minutes. I think they may have left because of the crowd, but he was genuinely concerned that he had to leave. Call and see if they got new tires for the ATV's before reserving. Aside from the tires, I would give and 8 out of 10 for the value

“Fun in the sun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Six of us went on this tour while in port on the valor. We were picked up at the dock by a very chatty driver whisked away to the waiting atv's after a little lesson by Ivan (we had a few people new to atving) a couple laps around the training track we were off yee hah!! We saw the red house over yonder, stopped to walk the gardens and see the saman tree just massive. A short demo by the ladies and we were back on the bikes. Ivan was great and juggled the slow pokes with the ones with a need fer speed!! The tour of the old plantation and future hotel was informative and gave us a nice break. Then Ivan stepped in it ha ha got to watch out for cow patties lol!! We tore it up on the bikes so much fun never wanted the day to end. Cold lemonade at the bar was the best I ever tasted . Can't say enough good things about Ivan. My girlfriend fell and scrapped her knee on the way to the bar, Ivan jumped into action and cleaned and bandaged it up. He thought it was an injury from the bikes after explaining it wasn't from the bike but from gravity we had a good laugh. We got back to the ship and talked of what a great tour we were fortunate to have! Big thumbs up for spectrum and especially Ivan from sum happy Canadians

“ATV Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We just finished a cruise and one of the ports was St Kitts. Spectrum was great. They were waiting for us when they said and everyone had a blast! Some of the riders had never done this before, but the instructions we went through made it simple for anyone to learn. We stopped at the Batik Factory for a few minutes, so it was a tour plus a great ATV experience. A few drivers had a few problems (stalling - myself), but they were there to help immediately.When we were done they took us back to the cruise ship. A great experience for all of us that went. (Ages 40 - 64)

“Ivan the Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Disappointed we can only give 5 stars! A truly fantastic experience. Our host, Ivan, was friendly, candid, articulate and encouraging. If you have never been on an ATV before and may be concerned that it's not your cup of tea, you might get a little dirty but you'll have an amazing time. You explore places on the island most tourists will never get to enjoy. You get to see the 'real' St Kitts and sample coconut water and sugar cane. Well worth the money, I highly recommend you try this activity!

“ATV Great... Beach not so much!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We paid for the ATV and Beach Excursion. We do a lot of ATVing. We own our own and try to do it on every vacation as well. They were very easy to spot at the port when we got off the ship. Our ATV guides were awesome and we really enjoyed spending the morning with them. It was a quality ride on a beautiful island but based upon my experience a bit pricey for the amount of time you spend on the ATV. As for the beach portion, we were extremely disappointed. Knowing that we had choices of which beach to chose, we talked to the driver and requested a beach where we could get chairs, shade and food. He assured us that he would take us to a great beach that had those amenities. Instead we were abandoned at an extremely overcrowded beach where there were no chairs or shade to be found not occupied. We watched as competition for chairs and shade was resulting in arguments on the beach. We tried to get food but were told "we didn't have a reservation" and would have to wait about an hour to see if they could get us in. After an hour of standing in the baking sun with no place to sit in the shade or food, we opted to forgo our beach portion of our excursion, paid for a taxi (even though return transport was included in the ATV price) and returned to the ship. We feel that we wasted precious vacation time during the beach portion of this excursion.
