Join us on a historical island tour of beautiful St. Kitts. Enjoy a leisurely drive through our historical capital, Basseterre. In “The Circus” you will see the Berkeley Memorial, a replica of the clock in Piccadilly Circus in London. You will see Independence Square (a former slave market), the Roman Catholic Cathedral, and St. George’s Anglican Church.
After Basseterre we head out on the island’s Main Road, passing quaint seaside villages on our way to Bloody Point where the Carib Indians died at the hands of the English and French in 1626. You will next visit Romney Manor, once owned by Samuel Jefferson, the great great great grandfather of the third U.S President, Thomas Jefferson. This beautiful plantation sits on 25 acres of lush tropical gardens and is home to the popular Caribelle Batik. You will then visit the highlight of our tour, Brimstone Hill Fortress, an 18th Century fortress and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy the breathtaking views in every direction. ‘This magnificent fortress sits impressively atop 38 acres of limestone and sulphur composites, with spectacular views over the St Kitts mountain range, sugar cane fields, Caribbean Sea and neighbouring islands. Designed by the British and built by slaves, the Fortress is testimony to European colonial expansion, the African slave trade and the emergence of new societies in the Caribbean.’
Your final stop will be Black Rocks. Here you can take pictures where the volcano erupted and the lava formed a rock formation. You will have many opportunities to stop along the way for photos. My drivers are knowledgeable on the history of the island, easy to understand and very friendly.
Duration: Approximately 3 hours (depends on how long you stay at the fortress). Minimum 4 persons. We often get other passengers when they disembark. Our rates are much lower than on board your ship. If you have four people we can arrange a private tour so you can go at your own pace. We can arrange a transfer to the beach after your island tour at an additional cost. Be sure to bring your camera and wear comfortable shoes.
Your adventure awaits!
Originally from Canada with family from St. Kitts, I am passionate about the island and my goal is to provide you with excellent service and ensure that your trip to St. Kitts is memorable. As a former senior travel agent with Marlin Travel, I specialized in group bookings to St. Kitts. We are committed to providing a quality experience using excellent, certified guides and safety standards. The guides I hire have either an air conditioned van or a comfortable open air safari truck, are well groomed, capable, eager to keep you happy, easy to understand, and are well informed. Our guides have over ten years experience. We don't rush you through your tour, but let your experience the beauty of our island. Don’t be disappointed – When you book ahead, you are guaranteed not to miss out on popular tours & activities. Travel with confidence – My guides are hand-picked, safe and reliable, so you always get what you pay for. You are not crammed into buses with dozens of other tourists, listening to loud music and drinking. Our vans hold up to fifteen passengers, but most tours have between four and ten passengers. We pride ourselves on small group settings and everyone is treated like family. If you have a large group, our coaster buses are also available. Our prices are very reasonable and much lower than what you will pay on board your ship. We don't charge a booking fee! We recommend you pre-book prior to arriving on the island. Get a group of friends or other cruise passengers together and I can arrange a private tour. This way you can depart on the tour as soon as you dock.
