Enjoy the best of what St Kitts has to offer with our FULL ISLAND TOUR. The tour starts at the cruise terminal or any other place requested. It goes through the city of Basseterre, the first British and French settlement in the West Indies viewing our old European architecture while learning of our African heritage, culture, political structure and more. Your tour guide, Toussaint Tatem likes stories, which he will share with you. We observe our Piccadilly circus, Independence Square, our war memorial,
old churches (Roman, Anglican), Romney Manor plantation once owned by Thomas Jefferson's ancestor, Samuel Jefferson. Caribelle Batik is where you can observe the process of batik printing and also purchase items of your choice. Brimstone Hill Fortress, a 17th century British military base is our next stop. The structure, artifacts, and museum are very impressive. Black Rock is where you can see the remnants of an eruption which occurred approximately 400+years ago. We then return to your ship or hotel.

Toussaint was a very professional and highly knowledgeable tour guide. He had a detailed knowledge of St. Kitts. My wife and I had an incredible tour with him. He was a very proficient driver.
