We spent the day with Ashton and everything was great. He met us right on the pier as promised and took us in his air conditioned van on a long ride around the island. It was definitely a long day, but we covered a lot and Ashton is just very well informed and has great stories to share. We felt like this was a great tour for a very small amount of money, which we gave him more than was quoted because he did such a great job. You get to see a lot of beauty, a lot of history, do some shopping and end up at a beach. When we arrived at the beach and ate the yummy lunch Ashton had purchased for us, we then had the choice to spend as much or as little time there as we wanted. Some of our group headed back to the ship, some of us stayed to do some more swimming and snorkeling and Ashton was right there when he promised to take us back to the pier. We HIGHLY recommend this tour, just keep in mind it's a full day but you will see more of St. Kitts and it will make you want to come back.

Tour October 2012 - Royston was just awesome in this tour, he brought us to places where normal tours don't go and gives you the in-depth perspective of the island. He gave us the most complete information to understand the evolution of the island over the centuries and to where it is now as well as some unique views of the island. We reserved it through e-mail and communication is great and the price for this tour is indeed worth every penny. I definitely recommend this trip if you want a bit more than the normal tours

There is only one reason I am rating Royston Tours a "4" and not a solid "5", and here is why. We visited St. Kitts on August 23rd while on the Carnival Valor. We (four of us) reserved our tour via email with Royston on May 1st, and we followed up on August 1st to make sure everything was in order. Royston told us that he would be away, but not to worry, that Ashton would be there to take care of us, and that he would be there between 8:15 and 8:30 to meet us. We got everyone up early and ate breakfast so that we were at the meeting place at 8:15, and when 8:30 passed, we began to get very nervous. At about 8:40, Ashton greeted us, and asked if we had received the email from a few days earlier telling us that the meeting time was now 10:15. (When we returned home, we checked our email and did not receive the email). We did not think that this was something you do at the last minute, especially if it is to accommodate folks wanting a different (and later) start time. It ended up not being that big of a deal, as we basically "flipped" our schedule, and we did our browsing and shopping at the port before the tour, as opposed to afterward as we had planned. However, it did make for a very late lunch (2 pm).

Now for the more pleasant items. This is an excellent tour. The air conditioned van was comfortable transportation around the island. Ashton showed us the major sights on St. Kitts, and all of our admissions were covered in the tour price, as were the refreshments throughout the day, as well as the delicious roll up prior to ending the day at the beach. The sugar mill, volcano, and Brimstone Hill fort were all beautiful. There were also many beautiful vistas to stop and take pictures. The beach we went to at the end of the tour required water shoes, as there were some sharp projections on the beach floor, and the dark volcanic soil was very hot. But this is a much better option to hiring a driver and doing this on your own, as everything is arranged and paid for, and you have cold drinks in the cooler at all times.

Our guide Ashton was fantastic. He clearly loves history and sharing his island with visitors. We shared a van with 2 other couples. The island tour started at 9:00am and we didn't get to lunch and a beach until after 2:00pm. My only complaint was it would of been nice to have eaten sooner. Otherwise Ashton kept us well informed as we circled the entire island of St. Kitts. I feel of all the islands I visited during our cruise, I learned the most on this all day tour. Thank you Ashton for giving us such an informative tour.

Terrific tour with Royston Tours. Ashton was our guide/driver for the day. We got to see the highlights of St Kitts. Ashton provide so much info and history of the island. Many stops for photos along the way. Ashton was a very knowledgeable and gracious host. The roti for lunch was delicious. Beach time was on South Friars. Highly recommend.
