We had a fabulous morning on our rainforest hike with David Swanston! Lots of guides can spout out facts and tidbits, but having literally grown up and currently living on the doorstep of the rainforest, David is not only knowledgeable, but passionate. My wife and I arranged a private tour through LIz Pereira and she hooked us up with David.... More

We returned to st. Kitts because of David Swanston. Our first tour with him 14 months ago (off a cruise ship) was great! We knew that when we returned, David would be our "go to" tour guide. We just did an all-island tour with him today. We did an entire circuit of the island, climbed Brimstone Hill to the fort,... More

We had a fabulous day with David on St. Kitts. Rode in his open air vehicle, learned a lot of great facts about his island, experienced a challenging hike, drank fresh guava juice with rum, noshed on homemade banana bread and fruit and then finished the day at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Truly one of... More

I can't begin to say enough good things about the rainforest adventure tour we took as a shore excursion on our cruise. We visited Romney Manor, home of Caribelle Batik and walked through the rain forest on the Wingfield Forest Trail. Our tour guide, David, was personable and very knowledgeable about the island and the local flora and fauna. He... More

This was a great tour. David was incredible. I will have to say that we booked through Liz pereira tours but David did the tour. We were four couples. He was very informative and fun. LOVED the truck safari. Tour was about three hours. We paid $33 p/p.

Our guide, Hilton, rushed us to go up, rushed us to go down, all that for... finally being 1.5 hour early on schedule! No explanation on the nature, no explanation on birds, no explanation on the volcano, no smile either. and expensive! To our point of view, you don't need a guide to hike the volcano.

I recently hiked Mount Liamuiga with Poinciana Tours when I was visiting St. Kitts for the day as part of a cruise. I booked the trip ahead of time, and David was very responsive to my emails and committed to taking me even though I was the only one to book this trip with Poinciana that day. The guide, Hilton,...

We got lucky finding David and this tour. Our family had such a great time with David. He is so knowledgeable about the island and rainforest. It was like having a friend take us on a personal tour sharing island experiences & history. We were on a cruise and I booked in advance. Booking was easy and David was at... More

In researching options for a port day in st kitts our group decided we primarily wanted an unrushed visit to the batik factory and time at a nice beach. After looking at taxi prices and available tours (most of which included aspects that didn't interest us or very limited time at the batik factory) I decided to email David at... More

We had a group of about 10 people on our trip, we were all picked up at the port, right outside of the gates. The tour bus was a customized pickup with seats put in to the back, for an open air ride. We got a "tour" of the city, which consisted of our guide pointing out things like the... More
