This was a very good tour. We really enjoyed meeting Lorna and trying the different foods of St. Kitts and visiting the local attractions. The walking was a little to much for me with a sore knee. We did opt to take a taxi for a portion of the tour. So be sure to ask for that if you have trouble walking up or down hills. Total walking including tour and to and from ship was over 3 miles.

This tour was an enjoyable way to spend the day. We visited a few interesting & tasty food establishments and the walking tour was informative. Lorna, our guide, is a non-native/seasonal resident of St Kitts who works primarily in the travel industry (i.e. not food expert) - she has a good working knowledge of the city and the restaurants that serve local fare. As a person who works in the food industry, I was expecting something a bit different. Personally, I would have enjoyed trying items from the fruit/vegetable vendors as well as some of the seasonings and meats we don't have in the US. I would have also enjoyed learning how to prepare some basic Kittitian foods and/or leaving with a few recipes to try when I returned home. If you want to walk around town, learn a few interesting facts and eat some tasty food, this is the tour for you. If you want a deeper understanding of how the foods are prepared and enjoyed as a culture, this may not be exactly what you are looking for.

Hello Barbara, Thank you for your candid review. Sorry for the delay in response, I was awaiting responses on whether the various vendors that we use were willing to provide recipes for the food that is served on our tour. Palms Court Garden is open to providing recipes for their dishes, but unfortunately the other vendors prefer not to share their recipes. Please contact me at stkittsfoodtours@gmail.com and I will get the recipes to you. We tried adding fruit/vegetable vendors the first year of the tours, the issue we faced was not having the vendors set up daily, so there was no continuity in the tour. Nothing is worse than turning the corner and finding out that your next vendor is not set up for business that day. The other feedback was the fruits/vegetables were the same as their local grocery store produce department. The same can be said about spices as most of our spices are brought in from Grenada and are not native to the island. Perhaps a food demonstration/cooking class will be a more suitable tour for you. There you will be able to have a hands on experience creating local dishes. Glen and I have discussed adding a cooking demonstration class for next season so we can use our culinary and mixology skills. We are just working out the venue and logistics end at this point. As an aside, my professional background is in the Restaurant/Hotel/ Catering industry with over 27 years in the the business. It was while I was working in a Persian restaurant in 2013 that I first experienced a food tour as it came through the restaurant. As a new travel agent, the idea of combining my 2 passions- food and travel was planted. My thought was wouldn't it be awesome to live in the Caribbean and have a food tour business catering to cruise passengers and land guests! Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2020

Wonderful! Laurna was a great guide. We visited 5 very diverse and interesting food/drink establishments. The first was the most posh but the second, a street food vendor, probably had our favorite bite. Laurna is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions about the flora, fauna, and history of St. Kitts. I would highly recommend this tour and it was a fantastic deal for the price!

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable few hours walking around Basseterre the capital of St Kitts. This is a leisurely,, mostly flat walk of just over 2 miles (approx 3.5km). Holidaying on St Kitts, 2 weeks last year and halfway through a 2 week break this year, we walked through streets that we hadn't previously discovered. The food stops varied from restaurant to street food to bakery but in all cases it was delicious. Our guide Lorna was extremely friendly and was able to satisfy a pescatarian diet. I would recommend this tour for cruise ship passengers as a way of discovering the streets and food of the St Kitts capital.
