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.

Met with group in the shopping area near the pier. Air-conditioned vans, although it was a lovely breezy day and not really needed. Tour included stops and admission to Brimstone Hill and Whitfield Manor. Very comprehensive tour of the island and some amazing views. Included one beer, water or rum punch per person. 4 hour tour. Price was fair, but no lunch stop, so plan accordingly. 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

Once onshore, you have plenty of opportunity to book a tourguide for about $20. St. Kitts has some beautiful views. The Manor and the Batik shop are a waste of time. And they want $3 to see Batik. Ridiculous. And dirty bathrooms for $1. Brimstone Fort is small with nice views. Not worth the admission though. Get a taxi to drive around the island for the magnificent views. Read Less
