Return Details

Returns to original departure point
When your cruise ship docks in St. Kitts, disembark and meet your tour guide at the entrance to the port. 

Begin your tour in the capital city of Basseterre. Stop at Independence Square, the former center of the slave trade on these West Indian Islands. Situated among well-preserved examples of both French and English architecture, this slave market has been repurposed as a beautiful garden planted with native species of flora. 

Pay a visit to Romney Manor, home of the Caribelle Batik factory (admission not included). Spend time looking around the factory on your own. Watch local artisans dye sea cotton to serve as the backdrop for traditional batik paintings. The store on site sells the beautiful fabric, as well as other native handicrafts.

Take in the views at Timothy Hill where you can see the merging of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Then enjoy free time to swim and relax at Carambola Beach Club before heading back to your cruise ship at the end of your tour.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:

We will ensure your timely return to Basseterre for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Lovely tour of the island with lots of stops for photos. The gardens were beautiful. Options to see the forts or relax at the beach. Drivers were courteous and friendly.

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 don't recommend this tour. Tour was supposed to start at 10 and we had to be there at 9:30. We arrived port at 9:25 and no representative. It was unclear where we were to leave from and had to ask three people before we finally found a rep at 9:40. They then asked us to pay more for the tour as they wanted to combine our tour with another because they didn't have enough for both. We had to wait for the bus and ended up leaving at 10:40. We basically went on the other tour and didn't stop at Independence square or the beach. I have no idea where the slave quarters are as there was no explanation of this. It was a taxi tour as the driver dropped us at the batik place and fort and we got no explanation of either. We didn't have time to go to the beach which is what we really wanted.
