What to expect
  • You will be picked up at your hotel or from Port Zante in an air-conditioned van or open-air safari which will take on a journey through the streets of Basseterre which boasts the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the Caribbean. The Circus, formally known as the Berkeley Memorial is modeled after the Piccadilly Circus in London, England. The green clock tower is a historic focal point, of the bustling commercial, financial and trading activity of the island’s capital. Journey to Independence Square, formerly known as Pall Mall Square, the former Slave Market. Heading North, the island main road will take you to the historic St. Georges Anglican Church. Visit the first Anglican Church built in the British Caribbean in Middle Island to view the tombs of Sir Thomas Warner, who landed at Old Road Bay. You will then journey west on the island’s main road, passing quaint villages such as Boyd’s Village and Challengers Village onto Bloody Point and Bloody River named in remembrance of the Carib Indians, the island’s first inhabitants. Another historical site is Old Road which was the first British town in the entire Caribbean. On the journey to Caribelle Batik on the left hand side of the road are stone petroglyphs, reminders of the Caribs. We will then visit Wingfield Estate and Romney Manor to see the magnificent old Saman tree which is more than 400 years old. Enjoy breathtaking views and capture the Island’s lush vegetation and verdant hills as you journey to the town of Sandy Point, the island’s second largest town. From the island main road, you will see the majestic Brimstone Hill Fortress. Turning right and driving upwards one can hear the sounds of birds and monkeys that live in the dense vegetation bordering the historical site. Brimstone Hill Fortress was built over a period of 104 years, starting in the late 16th century and was inducted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 40-acre site occupies different levels and offers spectacular sites of neighboring Caribbean islands. Having stepped back in time at Brimstone Hill, take the excursion back to tropical reality as you meander through the beautiful landscape of the island. The tour will then proceed back to the capital city passing by an 18-hole golf course and stately homes on the slopes of the majestic hills in the background. Your tour will conclude with a stop at the top of Timothy Hill for a breathtaking view of the Frigate Bay affluent area. Then the tour will journey to South Friar’s Beach or Cockleshell Beach for the duration of 1-3 hours, depending on your request. There’s nothing like relaxing on the golden sandy beaches, listening to the waves gently lapping against the shoreline and sipping on a refreshing beverage in a tropical paradise. The scenic drive from the beach adventure to the cruise terminal will be approximately 20-30 minutes.

Enjoyable trip for a reasonable price.
Our guide Janeel picked up up at the port and took us on a lovely tour of the island. We enjoyed the view and walk through the fort and seeing the local culture of the island. Janeel was very friendly and a great driver.

We were lucky enough to have Janeel as our guide! The Brimstone Hill Fortress is amazing with spectacular views. Janeel was very knowledgeable about the history of the island and answered the many questions we had. Spending time at Cockleshell Beach was a perfect ending to a wonderful day! Highly recommend this tour!

Guided tour of the island
Feb 2018 • Couples
Anna and her husband picked us up at the ship. We were given the tour by Anna who gave us her personalized details of the history and local points of interest. When we would make a stop she assured us to take our time to enjoy the sites including the beach and that she could get us back to the ship in time.

Janeel Boon gave great details, was prompt and stuck to the promised itinerary. He even dealt with an unfortunate situation when one of the guests lost her purse at a vendor and pursued everything he could to get it back for her. His concern and attention to small details to make sure we knew facts about his home/portraying the history and current St Kitts was amazing. This is one of the best tours we have ever taken!

Jan 2018 • Friends
Our tour guide was Janeel on this excursion. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and a great tour guide. We appreciated his efforts to teach us about the important historical and current events in St Kitts.

We met interesting people from the United Kingdom and were pleased to share a terrific lunch at the Carombola Beach Club with them. Brimstone Hill fortress provides a spectacular view.

This was a terrific tour - not to be missed!

Great Day! Highly Recommend this tour!!!
Nov 2017 • Couples
We stopped in St. Kitts for the day on a cruise vacation and booked this tour before we left home. We had a great day with Jason J. We ended up being 45 minutes late to our tour because of issues on the cruise ship and Jason waited for us to get off the boat. He was very polite and understanding and didn't make us feel bad for being so late. This ended up being a private tour for myself and partner. At first I was nervous about that, but it ended it being a great tour and Jason gave us so much information about his home, you could tell he was proud to live there. Jason drove us all round the island and made several stops along the way. We stopped at Caribelle Batik at Romney Manor, Black Rocks, Brimstone Hill, and a few other places. We ended the day at a beach that Jason recommended, Carambola Beach (our new favorite beach). We were able to be there a few hours and Jason came back to pick us up and took us back to the cruise ship, but not before another stop for more photos. It was a great day spent on this wonderful island!
