About
When your ship drops anchor in St. Kitt’s, make the most of even limited time on the island on a shore excursion that proves ideal for time-pressed travelers and first-time visitors. Rather than hiring your own car or navigating unfamiliar roads, you’ll be transported around the cities in an air-conditioned vehicle.

What to expect
See all that St. Kitts has to offer during this port of call excursion covering the island's beautiful outdoor landscapes, unique culture, and its hundreds of years of history. It's a great way to get a taste for this Caribbean island if you're looking to do more than simply hit the beach. Start your excursion with a pickup at the cruise ship port, continuing to Basseterre, the largest city on the island. Explore historic Independence Square, which was once called Pall Mall Square, and browse the nearby shops to pick up some souvenirs. Proceed next to Romney Manor, the site of Caribelle Batik fabric, making the trip there along a beautiful coastal road (admission not included). Watch as artisans work to produce finished textiles, putting the cloth through an intricate process of dyeing and drawing to create the finished product. If you'd like, purchase a few batik fashion items, wall art or accessories at the on-site store. Then head to Brimstone Hill Fortress (admission not included), a defensive position first occupied by the British in the 17th century, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Feel free to purchase an optional entrance inside the fort with your tour, the fee for which supports further restoration. Finish your St. Kitts excursion with a drive back to Port Zante to meet your ship. If you have extra time, add in some shopping and admire the incredible views before your ship departs the island. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to Basseterre for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Excellent short tour
Feb. 2020
Our driver picked us up as agreed at our hotel and gave us a little history as we drove to pick up the next set. Drivers commentary was great and we had an island tour. Timing means th actual visits to the Batik and Fort were a bit constrained but for the cost it represented excellent value.

Great way to see the island
May 2019 • Friends
Our van was comfortable. Our driver was helpful & knowledgeable. The views from the Brimstone Hill Fortress were amazing! The history is amazing. To see how long it has stood the test of time is impressive. There is an option to purchase a listening guide to learn more but we did not purchase that. The people that work in the little snack shack were not friendly at all! The french fries were amazing if the fresh ocean air makes one in a snacking mood or low blood sugar strikes. The Romney Manor was gorgeous. Learning about the Batik process was interesting. The Jefferson Rum Punch was good too! Awesome photo opportunities!

This tour (also offered by the cruise ship) does an adequate job of providing a good overview of the island. It is one of the few offered that do not require much mobility!

beautiful island
Jan. 2019
we took the tour ,and we were glad we did. It's such a beautiful place, traveled along the sea shore, went into a national park, the vegetation was stunning, learned about the making of Batik... then we went to the Brimstone fort, very interesting history lesson and the view was spectacular. A word of advice, it was prety tough to get up to the top, but everyone made it, and it was worth the effort.We booked the excursion on the ship, last minute decision,no regrets

Boundless Shore Excursion
We booked this shore excursion prior to our cruise. At port it was very easy to find and left on time at 10 o’clock. This particular day the tour didn’t make it back to port until 2:50 pm.

In touring the island we were able to see all of St. Kitts and what it had to offer. Favorite two spots were Caribelle Batik, we were given 30 minutes to tour the grounds. It was plenty of time. Second favorite stop was Brimstone Hill Fortress, we were given 40 minutes to tour here. In watching the 10 minute video at the beginning I did not have enough time to make it through the entire fort which I would have loved to do.

Great basic overview
We just disembarked from a ten-day Eastern Carribean cruise on Serenade of the Seas (Royal Carribean). We booked this tour because of it's low cost to duration ratio (mist bang for the buck). It was VERY informational. Our driver Junie was funny and answered our questions. He also stopped at a few cool spots for photo opportunities. Air conditioned can, rum punch/sodas/water are provided. The departure was close to the port, and we made it back in plenty of time before the ship left.

Better Than Expected
Jan. 2018
I booked this tour for 4 people. We were met at the cruise ship terminal by a woman who collected our online tour reservation (that I had printed before I left home). When she had checked off everyone on the list, she led our small group of 14 to an air-conditioned large van with comfortable seating. The driver was pleasant, spoke English, and was very knowledgeable about the island. He was accommodating whenever someone wanted to stop momentarily to take photos. He showed us many interesting spots, including the site of an old rum factory, a beautiful botanical garden, and a high lookout overlooking the point where the Caribbean and the Atlantic meet. The tour exceeded my expectations because, for the price we paid (less than $30 US pp), the vehicle was much nicer and the size of the group much smaller than I had anticipated. I thought that we would be riding around in an open-air “bus” mounted on the back of a truck, with hard wooden seats and 30 people. We did see many of these as we toured the island. Definitely recommend this company.

Disappointing Excursion
Jan. 2018 • Couples
After getting out to the meeting point a little early, the tour ended up being 30 mins. late. Also, about 25-30 senior and large sized adults were crammed into a van. One lady had to climb from the back, over the center column to get into the front seat. The seating was so uncomfortable that it made it hard to enjoy the tour at all. The only plus was that the van was air conditioned. The narration was so-so, given by Nigel whom is not usually a tour guide driver and possibly not prepared. We did stop at a small hotel to see the beautiful grounds and several scenic vistas that overlooked the ocean.
