Have you ever watched Drunk History on TV? That's what this tour felt like.

If you like to drink and learn a little bit as you go, this is a great tour. Annie, our guide, was knowledgeable and funny. She took us to five different stops where you're not sampling, you're given full on rum drinks. By the end of the afternoon, if you're not careful, you can get a little crazy. My favorite stop was Lover's Bar. That's also where things came a little undone. When we arrived, the bar proprietor put a bag of ice, a bottle of dark rum and four bottles of Ting soda on the bar. He cranked up the awesome reggae tunes and it was basically self-serve. Later, he brought out some moonshine for the group to taste and fed us chicken wings. My advice, should you decide to take this tour, would be to moderate (especially at Lover's) and drink water in the van between stops. A fun afternoon for sure.
Annie’s island!!!

Anne tour guide was the best - very informative and had a blast. She kept us out longer than allowed so we tipped her well. Drinks were tasty. 2 of the bars were tourist bars and the other 2 were local bars and those were the best. Being able to drink among the locals and experience their culture was awesome. The chicken legs that we ate at Lovers Lounge were tasty. Great job in your cooking skills Kendall.

What a terrific tour led by the amazing and delightful Annie! Our group of four met up with Annie at the designated pre-tour location about 10 minutes early - we were joined shortly thereafter by another couple from another cruise ship in port that day January 22, 2018. Annie waited for another 20 minutes for a group of five who were supposed to join us, but they never showed up. Even after she took us to our first rum stop - Cheers, located within the Port Zante cruise / shopping area - she went back to see if her tardy customers had made an appearance. I include this here to attest to how long she waited for these customers, who as far as I know, never contacted her about their change in plans for the day. It was evident to us that Annie takes her business and her reputation seriously, and she takes amazing care of her clients. We had a delightful day with her touring St Kitts, learning about the island's culture and history, sampling incredible rum drinks, and meeting other island residents. Our stops included Cheers Port Zante Tony's Basseterre Lover's Bar ... don't recall exactly where on the island this was located but they served a mean Ting with a Sting and the best fried chicken we've ever eaten Vibes Frigate Bay and a gorgeous spot where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea - this is where Annie served us her secret rum punch. If you are looking for a fun way to explore the island while sampling some delicious rum beverages, this is the tour for you - you will not be disappointed in Annie or her tour!

Our guide, Annie, was awesome! Our ship docked in a different area for some reason, but when we walked off the ship we spotted her right away. The tour started out exactly right with a rum punch emphasis on the rum!. Annie took us all over and told us all about her beautiful island. We stopped at Lover's Bar for our second drink. We had lots of time for pictures and a few stops to see the sites. I'm not sure the name of the third drink but it was great. We had time to shop a bit before Annie took us back to our ship. I'm cruising to St Kitts next year and have already suggested this tour to my travel companion.
