We just returned from the Caribbean and wanted to give a little feedback on this tour. We've done over 35 cruises and the ATV Adventure with Spectrum Tours is probably one of our top 3 tours ever! It was really fantastic and we had the time of our lives!
The van picked us up at the port and we drove for about 20 mins. or so to the ATV site. I was the only one in the group who had never driven an ATV or motorcycle. I was worried that I would hold up the others.
Ivan, our guide, was wonderful! He was professional but wasn't overbearing. He let me get the hang of how to do things at my own pace but was still watchful of the entire group to make sure everyone was following along well. He re-assured me that I could do this and was patient with me and took things slowly at first until I got the hang of it. He pointed out interesting things as we went along. We stopped at Caribelle Batik and also an old sugar mill great photo ops. We passed all kinds of wildlife: monkeys, a donkey, cows, and chickens. The trails were varied - from gorgeous, lush overhanging tree tunnels to tall grasses, rocky creek beds, over big ruts, and some flatter terrain too.
After awhile, we went on more advanced trails and we had a blast! I found that driving the ATV was really easy I love to drive cars so maybe that's why it was an easy transition for me?. Afterwards, we were rewarded with some much-needed lemonade and a trip back to the port. It was so much fun and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone who is somewhat active and doesn't mind a little physical exertion. I cannot WAIT to do another tour just like this one!

My family loved this tour! The bus was easy to find when getting off our cruise ship and the guides were great. Beautiful scenery.
Awesome. We had small group of 4 riders and the guide. Ivan was very knowledgeable about the area, and made the experience a lot of fun!
This was an awesome excursion and we had a wonderful time. It is highly recommended if you like riding ATV's. The scenery was beautiful and we rode up to the edge of the mountain. The views itself was so worth it. Being able to ride fast and have fun made our day very enjoyable! I would do this excursion again!
We had a blast! Love driving the ATV. Tour guides were great! Would do it again. Just suggest you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. The trails get pretty dusty if it hasn't rained recently and can get in your eyes. The tour guide wore a bandanna around his face to keep out the dust. Highly recommended if you like to add some adventure to your life.
Lots of fun even for beginners. My wife had never been on a four wheeler and enjoyed the trip. Stunning views of the Sea as well as some interesting facts about the country's history. The guys were great, very helpful. We highly recommend this tour.
This was a great excursion! Exciting - beautiful - perfect service by the staff - well planned - lots of time to enjoy. I loved it!
Best excursion I've ever been on! So much fun, beautiful and thrilling!!! Great guides, just an excellent escape from the cruise ship and crowds while visiting St. Kitts.
This tour was amazing!! Loved riding an ATV...it was ny first time ridi g ATV and found it to be easy to handle. The tour guys were very attentive and ensured that you were able t handle the ATV. The views were breath taking...thank you spectrum!!!
Loved this. It was fun to get away from all the tourist attractions.
Our guides were so fun.
Nice adventure. Fun but get ready for dirt in your eyes. The actual ride lasted a bit over an hour after being trained. Ride to and from port about 30 minutes. The two guys in charge were very nice. Even got lemonade at end
This was fun but a little unsafe. The back tires on most of the ATV and #39;s were bald ( better to do 360 and #39;s with though. ) and the brakes were defective no big deal in a big field but ones lined with barbed wire? The views were amazing and no one got hurt, but I be scared to do it again.
This was great, at first we stopped after 5 minutes of driving the things to walk through a place to buy things. Could have done without the stop to shop. but the rest of the time was great, they can only go as fast as the slowest person. The guide and back driver were quite but nice. very safe, and the guy doing the tricks in the last position is fun to watch. atv driving time is about 2 hours, which was perfect.
all four of us had a good time, The two guides Ivan and Manner were great, making sure we all were in control. My only complaint was we didn't stop at Caribelle Batik and the other group that was in our adventure purchased the tour right at the site and they only paid 75 per person . So I don't know if I should just wait next time
This is one of the worst excursion I have ever been on. The ATVs were in poor condition, most with bare tires and some with broken parking brakes. I told the guide about it immediately when I saw my daughters were treadles and then noticed that mine was too. He said it didn't matter whether they had tread or not. Bull. The helmets were in bad shape also and smelled. It was extremely rugged going up and down the same hills and trails in the same part of the island over and over again. We could have used some tread on the tires as we continued to slip and slide over the terrain. The description says it goes through Sugar Cane fields. There are no more Sugar cane fields on the island. You do go through tall grass fields were sugar cane used to grow. It also says you tour the Wingfield Estate which was owned by an ancestor of US President Thomas Jefferson, located in the foothills of the islands central mountain range where you can spend some time exploring the estates 17th century relics, and then make a last stop at Caribelle Batik, located just next door to Wingfield Estate. We stopped at a location where the guide says someone had been working on a hotel for years but he never said anything about Thomas Jefferson's relatives and there were no relics. Also we never went to the Caribelle Batik factory. The description of the excursion says your guide will share details about the islands unique culture and history. Not a word about that was shared. We could have been riding in the backwoods anywhere in the world and it would have been the same. After about an hour and a half my wife and daughter 22 were exhausted and filthy from all the dust thrown up on them and asked to get off as we went by the starting location. This was an unsafe excursion that wasn't at all a pleasant thing to do. I have already expressed my concerns to customer service and stated that this excursion should be dropped from their listing.
