We loved this. We got to see a bit of the island and see the highlights. The tour guide was knowledgable and provided a great tour of the house. We didn't see much of the gardens but we did see a bit. The tour guide had a great sense of humor and kept us laughing. Her presentation on the distilling... More

The tour was terrific, the guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the rum was of the hook. Five(5) different flavors and each one equally as good as the previous. I'm not a rum drinker, but I ended up buying three(3) bottles to take back. I will go again just to restock.

Following a tour of the house and grounds which was interesting and informative we were seated in a demonstration kitchen set within the grounds. It was a very hot day but the air conditioning and cool drinks ensured our comfort was assured. Our hosts were staff from the Nirvana Restaurant who were very special. They were warm and welcoming and... More

Booked this tour from a cruise which also included a rum tasting. A beautifully restored house and gardens. We had a tour of the house and a history of it then went into a former chapel for the rum tasting which was great. Natishia, our guide, was a sweetheart and lots of fun. This was a nice break and great... More

When touring St. Kitts stop off at the Fairview Great House & Gardens. You will receive a brief history of the house and have an opportunity to walk the grounds. Only disappointment- the woman who served us punch was quite unfriendly and that took away from the tour.

The Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to spend a day away from your cruise ship. On two separate NCL cruises (Dec 2015 and Jan 2016), my wife and I spent the day at this oasis overlooking the Caribbean. The house itself is full of history and the botanical garden is nicely maintained and pleasant to... More

Fairview was a stop on our tour of St. Kitts. We were given about an half hour to walk through the house and it's garden - which is ample time. The house has been restored and is lovely - the history of the place is interesting. The garden is situated behind the house on the side of the hill, and... More

My friend and I truly enjoyed our excursion starting with the tour from the port to the House with our very personable and knowledgeable driver, Michael, to the very pleasant couple of hours spent learning the history of the beautiful house and sampling rum with the outstanding Nakisha. What a pleasure she is! A true gem. It's a shame others... More
