We opted for Rain forest tour and we’re so happy we did! Mr O’Neil is a wealth of information on herbs and plants. The hike was challenging but with his encouragement our family finished it. His sense of humor and his vast knowledge of herbalism and homeopathic remedies was astonishing. Our next tour will be the volcano tour with Mr O’ Neil. Again, a can’t miss tour!

You can read differing reviews about the difficulty of this hike and the need - or not to take a guide. I am quite an experienced hiker, climber and adventurer but decided at the very last moment to heed advice and take a guide. There were a lot of slippery rope hauling sections which were more difficult on the way down than up. It was quite hard and I was grateful for the guide, howver if I had been with an expereinced friend we would have done it on our own without a guide and managed Ok but sense would be not to embark on it as a single climber.

O'Neil Mulraine is the best tour guide possible for hiking Mount Liamuiga. He's a very cool guy, and because he's been leading tours for 40 years, he's also extremely knowledgeable. Based on his reviews on this site, I called him out of the blue and asked him if he could take my two boys, 20-years old & 21-years old and both fit, up the volcano the next day (this was the first week of Jan, 2022). He went out of his way to accommodate them, even though he already had a tour planned. He even drove them back to our villa after the tour!

Another reviewer posted his business card on TripAdvisor. That's how I reached him.
His phone number is 869-465-1307.

My husband and I took this hike back in April of 2019. Shame on us for never getting around to writing this review! We were reminded recently of our wonderful experience at Mt. Liamuiga with O’Neil. We were so glad we booked with him because he is extremely knowledgeable and showed us spots we would have never found on our own. It was a challenging hike for us (in moderate shape) but so worth it! I uploaded a business card from O’Neil that we kept. I’m not sure if the information is accurate now 2 years later.

I saw someone almost plummet to their death. Watched a man in my group break is ankle and have to be carried down the rest of the hike. I slipped and caused a human landslide. Peed in the “bushroom” four times. One of the guys in my group slipped and grabbed on to a small tree so he didn't keep sliding but the tree unrooted and he slid like 20 feet. You would think that the hardest part is going up the volcano, right? Think again! Going down you will slip and fall so many times. People in my group were rolling down this volcano and when you start rolling it’s so hard to stop because it is so slippery. It not super hard exercise wise as long as your in good shape. Just know that you will not make it out of the hike with out bruises or death. Would I do it again? Idk prolly. Also, the view at the top sucks.

My boyfriend and I booked a guided hike with O'Neil in December 2018. After all of this time, I still remember how great this hike was and how amazing O'Neil was. His son came along as well, who was equally a delight. Had a wonderful time. Book them, they were the best!

On our previous visit to St Kitts 17 yrs ago, a treasured & much talked about highlight was a rainforest hike led byO'Neil! There was something very spiritual about him & the forest; and I longed to experience it again. On our recent visit February 2020, we wanted to again experience a rainforest hike. We randomly booked through the Marriot Travel Desk. My wife thought she recognized his name from before & as we waited in the lobby for our transportation, in walks a familiar person( a little older, gray beard,but still "fit as a fiddle"! ).... I looked at my wife & she said ," That's him!!! That's O'Neil!!! " Sure enough!

Again, I felt a spiritual connection with O'Neil that isn't really explainable,but was the same as 17 yrs ago!! He is THE expert on the forest,and actually constructed much of the trails! It rained ( not in the "rain"forest !😉) the entire hike so we weren't able to get to the canopy as before, but it was still very special!

Don't miss this opportunity to connect with a sacred nature with O'Neil or one of his Sons! They are unequivocally the best!!

This is a very challenging climb (not a hike) to the top. Figure on a heart-pounding
2 hrs up and 2 hrs down with a half hour at the top. By my Fitbit it was 23,000 steps, an equivalent of 14 km and 250 floors return trip. It was muddy, laced with vines and roots and slimy rocks. There is a real danger of falls and injury and no aid in sight. We had an excellent guide and I was grateful to have him as he pointed out things we would have missed. The trail is marked in places with orange paint but there many offshoots and it would be easy to get lost. Don't contemplate doing this unless you are very confident of your level of fitness and in my opinion the view of the jungle filled crater through a small gap in the trees was not worth the effort.

I was guided by O'Neill Jr., of Oneill Mulraine Tours. He did a great job, describing all the flora and fauna we saw. Tough hike - I'm 75 years old, but pretty fit (did Kilimanjaro at 65 y.o.). Met O'Neill senior (63 years old) at the top. Lots of big steps up boulders, tree roots to pull up on, a couple of traverses on narrow ledges. Wouldn't advise going in the rain.
