What To Expect

See all that St. Kitts has to offer during this port of call excursion covering the island's beautiful outdoor landscapes, unique culture, and its hundreds of years of history. It's a great way to get a taste for this Caribbean island if you're looking to do more than simply hit the beach.

Start your excursion with a pickup at the cruise ship port, continuing to Basseterre, the largest city on the island. Explore historic Independence Square, which was once called Pall Mall Square, and browse the nearby shops to pick up some souvenirs. Proceed next to Romney Manor, the site of Caribelle Batik fabric, making the trip there along a beautiful coastal road (admission not included). Watch as artisans work to produce finished textiles, putting the cloth through an intricate process of dyeing and drawing to create the finished product. If you'd like, purchase a few batik fashion items, wall art or accessories at the on-site store.

Then head to Brimstone Hill Fortress (admission not included), a defensive position first occupied by the British in the 17th century, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Feel free to purchase an optional entrance inside the fort with your tour, the fee for which supports further restoration.

Finish your St. Kitts excursion with a drive back to Port Zante to meet your ship. If you have extra time, add in some shopping and admire the incredible views before your ship departs the island.

What a fantastic time we had during this tour. We fell in love with St. Kitts. Our guide was wonderful! Highly recommend this tour.
Terrible Tour
392gabik, Apr 2019
29 usd pp and you get really nothing. It's not worth it. Don't take this tour. Best thing to take a local Taxi by yourself.
Visit Unesco World Heritage Site
Experience593093, Jan 2019
On the drive to this amazing historic site we enjoyed scenic views of the island and also stopped at the batik store which is set in a beautiful garden. Our final stop was at a hilltop with views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Our driver/guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this tour.
Junie is awesome.
Travel63335910604, Dec 2018
Junie was our guide and very knowledgeable of the area. We didn’t spend long in the places given the time constraint we were under but I learned tons about the area. He welcomed questions and when it was over, he offered to take us to another place but we declined as we had some shopping to do. We even stopped at Timothy Hill for pictures which wasn’t given in the description. Just a bonus.

Although we had to wait about 15 minutes at the Kiosk on top of Brimstone Forteress due to a heavy rain, it still was a great tour. Brimstone Hill was the absolute highlight of this tour. The view from the top is incredible - really to be rfecommended.

Nigel T, Mar 2018
This was a really good and enjoyable tour which showed the panoramic highlights of St Kitts and also included the optional Brimstone Hill Fortress visit. The latter is a UNESCO world heritage site and is well worth including in the tour of St Kitts.The only downside to this tour was the visit to the Caribelle Batik factory at Romney Manor where there was an additional entrance cost of 3 US person. This caused some confusion amongst some of the group members on the tour and it would perhaps be better to incorporate this cost upfront into the overall price of the tour. Apart from this minor point, this tour is highly recommended as both the tour and our tour guide were excellent.

Juni, our tour guide, was superb. Patient, safe and highly knowledgeable about the island, its people and its history.

Nathan O, Feb 2018
St Kitts is beautiful and our guide was great - pleasant, courteous and informative. The optional Brimstone Hill fortress visit was too short to take in the history and significant of the stop. There is a minute video presentation that we skipped and instead rented the 10 audio tour. Even with this and moving at a brisk pace we felt rushed to get back at the designated time. This, in addition to the 35 minute delayed start because the van hadn't arrived yet is why we'd rate it good but not great.

Kathy_R, Feb 2018
This was a pleasant 3 hour tour of St. Kitts with a well informed guide who told us of the history and present day activities. We saw breathtaking views of the coast as well as a visit to a batik factory and a closed sugar plantation once owned by the descendents of Thomas Jefferson. We elected not to go to the fort due to mobility issues and were transferred to another car to return to town after a drive to a photo viewpoint.

Cindy_C, Feb 2018
This tour gave us exactly what we were looking for. The driver took us on a tour of the island that showcased the gorgeous landscape as well as the urban centre and the new developments. He was willing to stop anywhere for photo opportunities and pointed out all the landmarks clearly. The Batik stop was very impressive and should not be missed! The tour guide was very well informed and answered all questions without hesitation or question. We had some very loud and disruptive guests on our tour and he handled them with grace. I would recommend this tour to get the whole island experience.
