We stopped in St Kitts on the Carnival Victory cruise in mid-June. I pre-booked with Royston based on Tripadvisor reviews. This turned out to be one of the top two tours on our trip. What makes this tour special is Royston himself. He is a great guy who knows all the right sights to show you on the island including unique offroad looks from his old VW Van. My teenagers really enjoyed it because the trip was full of surprises and lots of time spent at the various sights. You see the whole island and all the highlights and never feel rushed. At the end we had lunch on the beach with some great snorkeling. Royston let us take as long as we wanted. It was an all day tour and we enjoyed every minutes. The prices are very reasonable as well. I cannot think of a better way to spend the day in St Kitts!

royston is the best. he takes you all over the island in his windowless van (great for taking pictures) right to the egde of cliffs and to the walls of the fort. polite, talkative, adventurous, and proud of st kitts describes royston and his tour. in the end we stopped at a little restaurant to pick up some rotis to eat at the beach. overall, a fun tour at a very reasonable price.

I pre-booked on line for our tour. On our cruise we met another couple who were interested so they came along to meet up with Royston. It was the best bargain of our RCL Vision of the Seas Cruise!

Royston is smart , fun and very compassionate about his island. It was wonderful seeing his island.

My favourite thing was going off on a trail to the fishing village were it was obvious they new Royston. The fishermen were teasing him about not pulling out today! We loved seeing locals interacting it made the tour special.

On this tour you go where others don't. We were driving up a hill and monkeys crossed right in front of the van...they probably have not seen people for days! We did the regular sights, but from Roystons point of view...close to the edge or in the middle of a field.

After our tour Royston dropped us off at Palm Court Gardens and then picked us up and took us to the ship. He is a very accomodating , professional and maybe most important , just downright NICE!

We recently toured with Royston and it was the highlight of our trip. He takes you places no one else goes and you get to see the most amazing views. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. I honestly think he doesn't charge enough for what is included in the tour, so we tipped him well. We did get to meet Ashton in the beginning and had the choice of going with him in his A/C van, or touring with Royston in his open air, not as new van. Ashton was extremely personable and funny and I'm sure we would have enjoyed touring with him as well. We did decide to go with Royston because it seemed like more of an adventure, and we were all glad we did. We were extremely comfortable in his van, and with the windows removed, we got the most incredible breeze and were able to take fantastic pictures without having to get out. Of course we got out at the highlights, but it was so easy to take roadside pictures. I would love to go back to St. Kitt's, and if we do, I would definitely tour with Royston again because I know there is so much more he would be able to show us. Don't hesitate to book with him (and choose his van!).

We did the Volcano Tour with Roysten (or Roy as our kids called him) on Christmas Day 2012. Even though we had very hard rain our way down the hike, Roysten kept us safe and we had a great time. He is friendly knowledgeable (he seemed to know everyone we passed!) Plus we had sugar cane and saw some amazing views. Thank you Roysten, if you are ever in Flagstaff, we will take you on a hike here!!
