St. Kitts (Port Zante) Brimstone Hill Tour Excursion Reviews

Brimstone Hill, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, rises 800 feet with steep slopes and possessing a commanding view of the sea, was an ideal natural defense. Work on a permanent fortress on Brimstone Hill began in the 1690s and continued for about a century as the British and French wrestled for control of the island and its valuable plantations.
Excellent shore excursion.
Excellent shore excursion. This excursion took us to both Brimstone Hill and Fairview Great House. Fairview was very interesting. Brimstone is far and we spent a lot of time on the tour bus getting there.

Good tour. The bus driver stopped at the entrance of Brimstone Fortress and allowed a woman onto the van to pressure us to buy a device to listen to the history of Brimstone Fortress. Unfortunately, this is a scam. The device continually tells you to looks at your map for stop number 1, stop number 2...but there is no map. You have no idea where you are supposed to be looking while they are talking about "this area". This should NOT be allowed by Carnival and the bus drivers should stop allowing her on. Bad for business. Read Less

Be ready to CLIMB! Fort is on top of a mountain, and you still have to climb to get to the top! Stunning, breathtaking views from the top.

Wonderful tour. A bus tour of the island, this went west of Bassetierre to Fairfield House, a beautiful home and gardens now open for tourism and special events. Built on a hill it has a view of the ocean to die for. Then to Brimstone Hill. The fort is fascinating and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. Frankly, hand never heard of St.KItts before so wasnt really expecting much, but boy did I learn to never assume. We had a great time and learned alot about this beautiful island. Read Less

My favorite of the islands we visited. Unfortunately we did not dock but had to tender in. This cut into our time on the island. We did the Best of St. Kitts and Fairview House. Our guide and driver was Winston who was excellent. We visited Fairview house which was an old 18th century home which is very well preserved – the house is opened for weddings and other special events. We went to Brimstone Hill Fortress which was very impressive. I understand why they are a UNCESCO World Heritage site. They had a visitor’s center that featured a short film that discussed the history of the fortress. Our next stop was Romney House and the Caribelle Batik factory. It is a fascinating process which produces beautiful fabrics. Our final stop was Timothy Hill in the Frigate Bay area. There were spectacular views from there and there were people there with monkeys and for a fee they would allow you to take a photo of yourself with the monkey – I declined. Read Less

Toured an old plantation that now makes rum. Very interesting an you are also given samples off the rum. Had some difficult at the stat with our diver and he didn't explain anything about the island. The tour guide at Brimstone asked about out trip out and when heard about it arranged for a different driver back to the ship that's very informative. Will also recommend the train tour around the island, we took it the last time and it was wonderful. It was also booked through the ship. Read Less

Brimstone HIll tour and Fairview inn. This was a pretty cool tour of an old plantation house and Fort. Both were really neat. The approach to Brimstone hill was not for the feint of heart if you have issues with heights and narrow roads, but was otherwise uneventful. We had a lot of fun, great photo ops. We got back in time to head out to "the strip" for lunch and ate at a beach bar. Neat area to hang out. Read Less
