    What to Expect
    Take a luxurious train trip through the island of Saint Kitts as you travel along one of the Caribbean’s first scenic railways, finishing with a coach bus tour of the island’s key sights. Whether you’re a train lover or simply looking for a unique way to explore this tropical island, this train excursion is a great option.

    Start your trip with a pickup from your Basseterre or Frigate Bay hotel, continuing to the train to begin your ride. The sumptuously-appointed rail cars feature a range of amenities, including beautifully-designed interiors, a full-service bar, and bathrooms. The car’s upper level features a viewing platform where you can enjoy unobstructed views of the island’s soaring mountain scenery and thick, green cane fields. Meanwhile down below on the lower level, you’ll enjoy air-conditioning and sublime views through the large windows. You’ll also be able to pick from a selection of included beverages during your ride.

    Watch as your train pulls out and begins its journey winding its way along the edge of Mount Liamuiga. As you travel you’ll be able to see a variety of scenery like secret black sand beaches, the ruins of decaying plantations and sturdy iron bridges (one of which spans more than 300 feet (90m) over a large valley). The train also passes through a number of towns on the way, including Saddlers Village and Mansion Village, flanked by fields of fruit. 

    Listen to commentary about the island and your route, hearing tales like about the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” a train that was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s plantations to its main sugar factory in Basseterre. You’ll also be serenaded with catchy folk songs and tunes performed by the St. Kitts Railway Choir. 

    Upon finishing your scenic train ride, climb aboard a sightseeing coach for a 12 mile (19km) tracing Island Main Road. Among the sites you’ll pass are Brimstone Hill Fortress and a number of small towns and villages on the way back to Basseterre.

    Please note: there is no reserved seating. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

    This is not luxurious. It is a rickety old sugar can train. It was very busy on the day we went and they crammed extra people in. I didn't even get a seat to myself so had to squash between two other people with two halves of padded cushions. The drinks were not free flowing. We

    Let me start by saying that St. Kitts is a DUMP. It is a very poor island and that is apparently how they treat their island. There is trash everywhere. Piles and piles of trash. The train was very old and rickety. We made the mistake of sitting in the bottom of the car

    This tour was in two parts. Motor coach and train. We found the coach part to be interesting and we enjoyed it. The train left a lot to be desired. It was close to two hours long and the scenery changed very little. There are several cars on the train, and the narrator is
