Excellent value for money, just about the right amount of time at the places of interest
ST. KITTS IS ANOTHER LOVELY ISLAND SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS. THE TOURS TAKES YOU ALONG THE COAST WHICH IS VERY SCENIC.
I had a wonderful experience on this excursion. I loved taking pics with the monkeys and our tour guide was so accommodating and kind. It was a truly amazing and awesome day!! Thank u so muchly!
I can't remember then name on our tour guide but he told us to call him S.Q (Shy and Quiet). He was very knowledgeable about the history of St. Kitts and the tour was very personable because it was only my mother and I. We enjoyed stops along Romney Manor and Brimstone.
We were a group of 12 people. This was a great way to view st.kitts. definitely worth going to the fortress as well. Our driver was excellent and so knowledgeable - Osquin aka SQ. Thanks from Shah family.
Great way to see St Kitts. Our guide, SQ, was very good and offered interesting information about the island. Good value compared to what the cruise ship had to offer, and we had no trouble meeting up at the pier with our guide.
Well worth it, especially the Brimstone Hill Fortress visit. Definitely bring some spending money for the Batik because the place is a gem with some very unique and beautiful crafts and textile goods. Our tour guide, "SQ," was great and had much to say about his homeland. Stop times at the places of interest were adequate for photo ops and exploration, but leave you with the feeling that you want to come back.
Excellent experience. Our driver SQ was informative, friendly and helpful. Would recommend this tour. The island is beauitful, fort was interesting. Note: steep steps to it.
We had a great time. St. Kitt's was beautiful. We were picked up and dropped off on time..
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.
Excellent trip with a very knowlegable guide the trip to brimstone hill fort is well worth the effort recommended.
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.
We enjoyed our excursion very much. In particular, the highlights of the trip were the visits to the Brimstone Hill Fort and the manor house now used to make and display batik.
The views from the Fortress as great. Our guide was great. As we didn't book on the ship there was only a small group of us. So no waiting around. Enjoyed it
There isn't really that much on this island to see. However the tour did take you around and show what there. The driver was very informative and shared his knowledge with us which was great. Did not chose to go up to Brimstone Hill Fortress because of traveling with a couple of people who have a difficult time walking. If it's your first time visiting this island I would recommend this so you can see what it has to offer.
With this being our first time in St. Kitts, this tour gave us an overview of the island. Enjoyed the Batik factory, the surrounding gardens and the demonstration of how they made the Batik designs. Got to see the monkeys on our stop at the lookout point (and had a picture taken with one after paying the camera fee).This is a small island with not much else to see. We did not take the optional visit to the Brimstone Hill Fortress. The price of the tour was reasonable for what we saw.
