St. Kitts Brimstone Hill Tour Excursion Reviews
The Essential St. Kitts Tour, KT21. This was a narrated bus tour through downtown Basseterre, a visit to the Romney Manor/Caribelle Batik Studios to watch a demonstration of the Batik dyeing technique and a visit to the Brimestone Hill fortress. The downtown tour was really just a drive by with nothing really grand to see. The Romney Manor was just a large house with a garden and the Batik demonstration only lasted about 10 minutes. The highlight of this excursion was the visit to Brimestone Hill fortress. It was located on top of a hill via a stretch of narrow dirt road which was barely wide enough for the bus. The fortress is being restored and it does offer some terrific windy views. This was a self guided tour and there were just not enough placards to tell us what we were looking at nor explain the history of the fort; a far cry from the ones in San Juan.
Same thing as above. We had been here before, had done the train trip (and thoroughly enjoyed it). Didn't see any tours from the ship that met our to-do list; all spent way too much time at one beach or another. So I got some suggestions (on this site?), did some on-line search, and found Royston. Royston's cousin Ashton gave a van full of us a good drive around the island with good photo stops, scenic views, history, batik, etc. At the end, after a good lunch, he dropped off those who wanted to stay at a beach, took the rest of us back to the port to enjoy the rest of the afternoon in the town.
