“Wonderful Day Touring St Kitts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We contacted Thenford Grey to arrange a private tour for two to see specific places. They have several tour options available, but we wanted to customize our tour. Thenford met us at the dock and off we went. We had an informative tour of Basseterre as we headed out of the city the Rain Forest. Mr. Grey led us on a long hike through the rainforest, took us to Brimstone Hill Fortress and then to the other end of St. Kitts to Reggae Beach for an absolutely delicious lunch of Conch Fritters & Mahi Mahi. We then had time to snorkel for a while before heading back. Along the way back to the ship we stopped at an overlook where you can see both the Caribbean Sea & the Atlantic Ocean. Even though we had a full day of touring we were back at the port in time to do a little shopping at the tourist stores outside the dock. It was a lovely day, and Mr. Grey’s is a professional and very knowledgeable guide. Whether you want to go on one of Grey’s set Island excursions or arrange for your own customized tour, you cannot go wrong with Grey’s Island Excursion!

“Great guided hike up Mt Liamuiga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

This review is overdue but when we visited St Kitts last year we contacted Mr Grey who arranged for us to hike the volcano mountain. Mr Grey himself collected us & en route showed us a few sights before the climb. David was an excellent guide, informative & patient when I was tired. I'm not super fit but ok & for me it was fine. Our group was just myself & my husband as it was low season.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Thenford is a gracious, articulate and insightful man. We had the pleasure of booking "The Tour" with his company on 8/30/13 and he indeed provided a thorough experience of beautiful St. Kitts. We never felt rushed or pressed for time; he made multiple stops so we could capture some wonderful photo memories. We received exceptional service and gained a great deal of knowledge about the island and its history. I especially appreciate the extra attention he gave to my 11 year old -- making sure that he too understood the highlights of the tour.

“Brimstone Hill Fortress is great as well as Thenford Grey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Off the ship I was tossed up with taking Thenford Grey's tour or the taxi drivers $20 4 hour excursion around St Kitts.
After meeting Mr Grey I could tell he was a very compassionate individual who very much cares for his guests, and it was a great honor and pleasure being on his tour bus to see St Kitts site.
Drove along the coast after seeing the heart of the city, pointing out many places, as well as many stops, BUT my favorite was visiting Brimstone Fortress, the views were breathless, and just fabulous!! I definitely would recommend this site, if you go on your own there is a $8 admission fee for visitors. Mr Grey does offer this admission fee with his fees, as well as water and soda, snacks he provides as well!
Also the top of the hill (resort side of the island) is also breathtaking, where you see where the Caribbean ocean and Atlantic ocean nearly kiss! JUST beautiful, both sites we just barely missed the rain, which is very common in the Caribbean.

“Volcano Hike was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The hike to the top of the old volcano in St. Kitts was great. It took about 5 hours to get up and down. Just make sure you are in good shape as not everyone made it to the top.

We are glad to learn that you were among those who made it to the summit of Mount Liamuiga. Do keep yourself physically fit as I am sure that there will be more mountains to climb in the future.
Thanks for choosing GREY'S ISLAND EXCURSIONS for your visit to St. Kitts.
