St. Kitts (Port Zante) Island tour Excursion Reviews

With a population hovering around 35,000, the small island of St. Kitts is a gem of the Caribbean. Home to a plethora of beautiful beaches, the island also holds Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, the largest fortress ever built in the Eastern Caribbean and among the best preserved in the Americas.
City tour and beach transfer.
City tour and beach transfer. The tour was shorter than the one in St. Kitts, but the guide was nice and informative! The beach was better than st. Lucia in my opinion.

Not too much to do on this small island. Fortunately, there is great shopping right at the cruise port. We went to Brimstone Hill Fortress which is not very close to the cruise ship pier. I thought it was very good. I want to go again someday but my family says once is enough. We also went to Romney Manor (once is definitely enough) and a beach (that was crowded, expensive and average). St. Kitts is a volcanic island so some beaches have white sand but many don't.

Traveled in a small bus from the terminal across the island to a beach. Along the way the tour guide provided good information about the island's history and culture, and we visited an old sugar cane plantation. We also stopped for pictures at a view point. The beach we visited was nice and out of the way, and reasonably priced. Read Less

Rented a car & drove around the island. The coast drive is delightful with many long views. The posted speed limit is 20 mph - but locals drive like they're on fire. Belle Mont Farm is both beautiful & delicious!

I booked a tour with Thenford Grey Tours (The Grand Tour of St. Kitts). I loved this tour & recommend it highly if you want a great tour of the island with a beach break at the end. You hit all the highlights of the island and end up at S. Friars Beach with a cute bar that serves food. The beach has chairs, lots of shade, and hammocks. It was the perfect day and got you back to port with plenty of time to do a little shopping (if you want) and make it back on the ship in plenty of time. Read Less

One of the best driving island tours I've been on. Booked directly with two other couples from our roll call. Royston provides an off the beaten path detailed tour of his home island. Be aware he operates from his modified non air conditioned van with open windows and will take you from driving on secluded beaches to winding mountaintop trails. He provided a detailed look from the arid Southern tip of the island to the volcanic Northern mountains. Royston is an avid cycler and outdoor enthusiast, yet could customize the tour enough for those of us who are not so young anymore. This is not your typical tourist trap island tour. Read Less

We took a tour with Rosevelt Taylor, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. We toured the town of Basseterre, then visited the old plantation house at Romney Manor, now transformed to a beautiful tropical garden with batik fabrics for sale. We also visited the fort at Brimstone Hill, which has great views! Timothy Hill is another great view point and we had the option to visit Carambola Beach at Friar's Bay, which is a long, sandy beach with a restaurant. Read Less
