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.
