Visited Romney Manor beatiful flora and fauna only saw 1 monkey. Took pic at the 400 year old tree. Learned a little about the island and then off to frigate beach. Best beach stop calm water lots of fish for snorkeling. Was able to really be in the water compare to other beach stop due to high wave

This tour was made all the better by our knowledgeable courier l think Johan.

To be clear, everyone was friendly and professional. I just didn't find it very interesting, and it wasn't what I thought it would be. We took a tour that included a beach--it turns out the beach portion was just a drive by the tour was to the beach, but not for time spent at the beach. The first part was to an archeological dig of a 15th C rum distillery. Interesting, but there was one bathroom with a pad lock, and a dollar charge to go, which suddenly become 2 for someone after about 5 people paid to go. There were a lot of people hoping to get tipped who were informative, but it wasn't clear if they were officially part of the tour. The Batique store was interesting, in finding out how they did what they did. I had increased respect for a style of clothing I hadn't realized before took that much work to make, but other than that, the entire grounds were just little photo nooks, and shopping opportunities. Then we had the tour with a kind of taxi driver to the beach. It included some interesting realizations as to how St. Kitts was developing and recent investors, but which doesn't feel like an excursion. Of course, the port was just a big shopping place. All in all, I congratulate the people of St Kitts, but I'm not sure I have a feel for what it would be like to actually be there.

I enjoyed this excursion as I had never been to St. Kitts before. The guide gave a lot of good information and answered our questions. I especially liked Romney Manor and would have liked more time there to walk the grounds. The batik shop had excellent items and good prices. We enjoyed the fort which surprised me. It had a large number of photographic exhibits which were very informative so we learned a lot about the history of St. Kitts.

I give it a 3 star because the driver left us even though we were back to the agreed location at the agreed time , had to take taxi back to ship which cost us $12

A very professionally organised tour and competitively priced. I will definitely use Viator in future.
