    EXCELLENT tour of St Kitts! Phenomenal tour guide! Amazing views!

    Very accommodating for our large group (15) ranging from teens to 70+.

    We enjoyed a selection of local fruits and pastries while enjoying the views.

    The drive through the rain forest was incredible.

    Greg and his colleague were super-friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about St Kitts.

    Greg (a 5th generation native of St Kitts!) has exclusive access to privately-owned parts of the island that you won’t see with anyone else.

    Everyone in our group loved it!!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    St Kitts cruise port seems to have the most confusion of any when just trying to catch a cab to the beach as they're constantly looking to get groups of 10-12 persons to load onto their transports. Didn't really see ordinary taxis but maybe they're there somewhere. Took about 30-min to get going. But once going it was great.
    Socrates was our driver of what turned out to be an open air vehicle which was ideal for the 25-min drive to Cockleshell Beach (Only $5/person each way!). Just a picturesque island that u can't grasp enough if you're in a closed vehicle. Socrates had great commentary along the way. We were dropped off at a random location centered amongst a long row of beach bar establishments. The nearest one to our drop-off of course acted like we should immediately settle in at that location but we were not deterred as we were looking for the Reggae Bar Beach (Last Bar left from drop-off point), a recommendation from a fellow cruiser we had met. That's where we ended up & it was a pretty good choice.
    Although the far end of the beach (to the right of the drop-off point) was slightly more modern looking w/ better views, Reggae was packed and had a great kitchen w/ best prices on food & drink when compared to their beach bar neighbors. Whole lobster actually affordable & tasted great! Hint: Order lunch before the big crowd does.
    For a somewhat ordinary beach w/ no waves everybody seemed to be having a great time there. Water sports were busy, service was outstanding & restroom easily accessible. 2-Chairs w/Umbrella were $30. Chairs without Umbrella available. Socrates was ready for pick-up when & where he said he would be and we made the picturesque ride back to the ship in time with no issues.

    We stumbled upon this restaurant on our way to another place for dinner and wish we would have found it sooner. The view is amazing and the food delicious. Definitely a little oasis in the middle of the city. The setting is so beautiful and the staff are all so friendly and kind. Like dining with friends. Wish we would have found it sooner we would have definitely enjoyed eating there again. This is a must if you are in St Kitts. The food was hands down the best we had while in St Kitts.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 10 am and made our way towards the entrance of the manor. After paying the admission fee, we started to walk around the gardens. The gardens were very well maintained and consisted of various colorful flowers and trees. We then made our way inside the building, where there was an employee demonstrating the process of batik creation, which is a textile technique that creates patterns on clothing. After viewing the process, we browsed through their gift shop, however the prices were quite high. There were also restrooms inside the main building as well. We then made our way back outside, where we were able to view the bell tower and roam the grounds.

    Tip: I recommend spending 45 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 2 pm and made our way inside the church. We toured the inside of the building and were able to see various sculptures of religious figures, along with several paintings on the wall. We payed our respects and left.

    Took a taxi with Sylvester Samuel to No Limit from the cruise port. James & Janelle were very welcoming! Great prices on chairs & umbrellas. Drinks were great too! We will visit again!

    This historic building is one of the first you see after leaving the cruise ship terminal at Port Zante in Basseterre. It contains many fascinating artefacts related to the history of St Kitts and a visit is an interesting distraction.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 2 pm and made our way towards independence square. There was a small waterfall in the center of the square, along with several benches and shaded areas to relax on.

    This is a beautiful church in the center of Basseterre. It has a very long history of damage from various causes and reconstructions, last of which was caused by hurricane Hugo in 1989. Worth a visit and free to enter.

    We went to St. Kitts on the Icon of the Seas. We found an amazing ring on the ship but held off because the price wasn’t where we wanted it to be. We found the same ring at St. Kitts and they gave us an amazing price that beat the price on the ship by leaps and bounds! We ended up buying the ring, another eternity band and diamond earrings. Karis and Kash helped us and were fabulous. We even got their card so we could contact them again for more purchases.

    We passed here on a cruise ship excursion so I had to walk back to see it properly. It’s in the centre of Basseterre and apparently has links to my home city of Glasgow. It’s just a cool landmark.
