St. Kitts Scenic Railway Excursion Reviews

Board a narrow train, built between 1913 and 1926 for transporting sugar cane, for a scenic 3-mile circle of the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Kitts.
Good views from the train and nice history tour of the area by shuttle.

St Kitts is a very poor island and still struggling to recover from their hurricane.

St Kitts is a very poor island and still struggling to recover from their hurricane. The scenic railway is very old and hard for people with disabilities to get around.

Narrow guage railway and they take it (really) slow. All inclusive drinks is an attendent taking your order and then serving the drinks 20 minutes later. Plenty of time to get a couple of drinks.

The WORST excursion ever. The train operators crammed the people on the train, kept saying - move over, move over. We were packed in SO tight I felt extremely uncomfortable having my body pressed against the stranger sitting next to me for a 3 hour ride. The train operators didn't care. We were pushed so close to each other we couldn't turn around to take pictures. THREE HOURS OF HELL!!! I HATED THIS EXCURSION!!! Read Less

Different way to tour the island on an old sugarcane rail line. Good scenery but the first car behind the engine had fumes that were a distraction. Free drinks helped :)

thought it was a bit pricey but since the walking was minimal thought it would be a good fit for us. The tour started with a small passenger bus ride to the rail station. Teddy our driver was very informative and funny telling us about the island. Once we got to the rail station we picked the upper deck to get a better view of things..if you do this and want to see beaches and the surfs..sit on the passenger side..They served alcohol/virgin drinks/soda and the narrator gave us a tutorial on the island.. Amazing how minimal the peoples houses were.. O Read Less

This seems so contrived to take the railway. It is completely worth it. St. Kitts is underdeveloped, so the railway is a great way to see the coast. Plus there's also rum punch!
