This island is spectacular! SQ (nickname) was absolutely fantastic. He was so accommodating and informative. We were able to experience the island in a well paced tour -- my grandkids were with me (9 and 7) they enjoyed it and did not get bored. It was a small group which made it very comfortable. St. Kitts is a definite want to come back and spend some time there. I would definitely book it through them again.

We where greeted in the port entrance with my wife's name and mine and then went to our mini bus. We where the only ones, so the tour felt like a VIP excursion.
You get to see many of the highlights with no time pushing. The fortress was the best, nice panoramic photos. Overall great experience.

Brimstone Fortress was amazing, the views from there was spectacular. Our guide was very funny and entertained the whole bus. The bus was nicely airconditioned and clean. The carrib batik house was also very informative on how they make the differnt fabric colors.

It was great from start to finish. My tween daughters and I booked with Viator instead of the cruise, so we got a smaller vehicle with more personable experience. Our driver was great, and not only did he "tour" us, he discussed and answered all our questions, including the hard "political, economic, crime, etc" questions that are not usually detailed on the larger tours. Based on my conversations, I would definitely consider purchasing a vacation home in the area.

Usually we head to the beach, but we were pleasantly surprised by the botanical gardens and Brimstone Fort. Great history and a wonderful tour

When we got off our ship a rep was waiting for us. We were given to Anthony our driver and away we went! Our driver was funny and informative. Caribb Batik was wonderful. We toured the grounds by ourselves. We were given 45 minutes to do so and that was just right for time wise. Then off to Brimstone. LOVE this place. Only thing I didn't like is that we only had 45 minutes here. Wish it was longer. Could have spent more time here for sure. Maybe next time. Anthony then returned us to the cruise terminal. It was only a 3 hour tour but it will stay with all of us as a great time. I definately will use Viator tours again for St. Kitts. Just hoping they will expand the time at Brimstone next time.

Very pleasant morning with two dofferent drivers - we didn't go on the extended Fort (Brimstone Hill) tour.
The batik factory tour was interesting and the grounds around it were just beautiful - picture taking everywhere.
We then separated from the group and were driven across the island to a beach to deposit a family for their excursion. That gave us an opportunity to see some other sights and the view from the top of a hill near Frigate Bay was breathtaking. Got some memorable snapshots of Nevis and the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Caribbean Sea on the other. I wish I could remember the name of the driver; he was very informative about the island and answered all my questions. We would recommend this tour, even just for the panoramic part. Thanks again to Zondra for meeting us and arranging the change in the tour. St. Kitts is certainly an interesting island to visit.

Our driver (SQ) was fun, polite and on time. The tour was full of amazing views and fun information during the drive time. My only wish was that the stops had guided tours too!
I highly recommend continuing on to Brimstone Fortress, it is fantastic!!!

a good overview of the coastal areas...had a great guide, "SQ", who was very personable and gave lots of good information. The fortress is worth doing if you are into history and views. Next time want to see the rainforest.

Driver=friendly+knowledgeable. Wanted more time @ Fortress (maybe less @ House) to walk around/read museum pieces.
Driver mentioned more monkeys than people on island. Would like to see monkeys in the wild. :)

The best part of this trip was the Brimstone Hilkl Fortress.

Nice tour. The stops are very beautiful, but I would have like to stopped for a little longer at each location.
