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. :)
Nice tour of the Island. A bit of trouble with understanding our guide, but super nice guy and we managed just fine!
Nice tour. The stops are very beautiful, but I would have like to stopped for a little longer at each location.
Trip was great. The driver was very nice, had lots of good information. We were the only ones on the tour. Would use Viator again.
We had a very friendly and flexible driver, van was comfortable. We really enjoyed the island and seen some picturesque sights. The fortress is especially worth seeing.The botanical gardens were one of the best.
Met by the Viator rep at the port who then escorted us to a taxi with our own driver/guide. We were then driven around Basseterre, which is one of the prettier towns in the Caribbean islands before proceeding onto a batik printing demo and gardens and onto the fortress. Well worth the visit, interesting history and magnificent panoramic views of the coastline, could have spent more time there.
The tour excursion was driving around town but not very informative. The excursion drove to a botanical garden which was just a straight walk in and out, no further explanations or a feel of a real tour also the brimstone hill fortress was pretty short when we visited (not enough time to really check it out). Overall the tour was mainly rushed.
The greeter girl didn't have our driver there for about 20-30 minutes to pick us up, after giving us a specific time to be at the meeting area. The tour guide was good at explaining things and personable. There was a point at the batik factory where our group split to those going on to brimstone hill and those that were not. We had to wait an extra 20-30 minutes for the cab to come get the other people. When we arrived at the batik place we were told the ACTUAL time to return to the cab.....then it appears as he had not called for the other driver...Knowing WHEN he told us to finish our looking around, he SHOULD have had the cab there then. As it was, we just stayed in the parking lot waiting to leave, but could have spent more time exploring
We enjoyed St Kitts, a beautify little island.. The Batik factory was a hit... In future please have your drivers have working A/C in the bus as well as maps of the island should be made available. Overall, this was a very good trip.
Unless you were in the first row of seats in the van you couldn't hear anything the tour guide talked about.
When you get off the ship there are about a hundred drivers wanting to take you on a tour of the island. Because we had prepaid for our tour, we waited an hour at the pier and then had prepaid almost double what the other drivers were charging for an island tour.
Poor organization by the staff at port. The driver who was also the tour guide was very poor, and didn't provide us with any information about the island. He would just point out places as we went by, that we could have read off the signs on the buildings. Would definitely not recommend to anyone.
