Greg was born and brought up on St. Kitts and Nevis and following his return home from College in Nova Scotia Canada in 1980, started working at his Parents hotel, the Ocean Terrace Inn, with one of his jobs being to do tours for the hotels guests.

While growing up on St. Kitts, Greg's parents became leaders in the local Tourism Industry, starting one of the first hotels in the islands, with Greg's Dad, eventually receiving the "Order of the British Empire" (OBE), from the St. Kitts Government for his outstanding achievements in local Industry.

This has given Greg a unique grounding as well as a deep sense of understanding for his home country and coupled with his tourism training abroad, has allowed him to become one of leading and longest serving tour guides in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Greg and his team of certified Tour Guides have won many awards from the Tourism Authority for their businesses high standards of service.

From the very beginning Greg has used modified, 4X4 Land Rovers to do his "unique" island Safaris with. Being specially made, the 8 Land Rovers he uses today, are all open sided with mostly forward facing, stadium orientated seating, that provide his guests with the best way to experience exploring beyond the shores of St. Kitts and Nevis. Greg's Safaris is the only tour company in the Federation that uses 4X4 Land Rovers for touring on both islands!

For your private, half days hiking pleasure, Greg has created two "unique looped hiking trails", one at the Phillips Mountain Valley (2 miles long), and at the other at the Wingfield River Valley (2 1/2 miles long), on St. Kitts. His company is also the only one on St. Kitts to offer driving tours from coast to coast through the lushly forested interior and while traveling through the mountains his guests would have access to a private 5 acre "mountain top property", perched1000 feet sea level, a place of cool temperatures and breathtaking views, that can only be experienced on a "one of kind" 4X4 Safari Tour with him and his guides.

Greg is one of the founding members of the St. Christopher National Trust and as well, sits on the Central Forest Reserve National Park Committee. He is also a Life Member of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Brimstone Hill National Park and is also part owner of Sky Safaris, a company he started in 2009.

The owner, Greg was our tour guide and you could immediately see how proud he was of his native land. He offered insight that only a true native could offer. He was able to take us places not open to the public.

Greg was our guide and the owner of this tour. Greg grew up and lived on this island most of his life and in fact, his family dates back 150 years on this island. Greg is extremely knowledgeable and explains the plant life, cultural life, history, climate, etc. very well. He has a passion for this island and the people... More

We booked the "Phillips Rainforest Hike and 4X4 Cross Country Drive" through our hotel (Marriott) based on the high reviews for Greg's Safari - and weren't disappointed. Greg is a fantastic, knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed the ride from our hotel in the Land Rover, the rainforest hike - from the views, the hike itself into the rain forest, and what... More

I have traveled to St. Kitts many times over a 30 year span. Our kids were getting tired of just hanging out at the beach so we decided to try something really different on our last trip in July. We booked the Phillips Rainforest Tour, hoping our kids would like to hike in the rainforest (ages 20, 18, and 14... More

We booked this through our cruise, not knowing it was Greg's but I'm glad it was because in reviewing before going to St. Kitts this was my first choice. We were picked up at the cruise port, and taken on our trip around St. Kitts and through the rain forest. We got to an area with a great view and... More

Waited 45 minutes in the sun (continually being told just 10 more minutes) for the company to get organized, get a vehicle to us, then shuffle people from already departed vehicle.

Greg is an amazing person, such a lovely guy. He knows everything you would want to know about the island and everything you don't. Great tour, I learnt a lot, and the spread of local food he put on after was the best food I had had all week.
