Hiking the Rainforest Adventure

A Highlight of our Cruise
April 29, 2023
We had a fantastic morning touring the St Kitts rainforest with our guide Sudan. We were greeted at the port and taken to the open air bus. There were only 4 of us , so it felt like we were having a private tour. We stopped for some photos and history, then arrived at Romney manor and Winfield estate where you could walk the garden and tour the batik making and old sugar mill, then the rest of the morning was hiking the lush rainforest. Our group handled the path quite well, so we did do a more difficult climb where we needed the rope hand rails for the longer climb up the side of the ravine. A Great workout ( 2 of us were in our 60s). I would say the hike is a moderate level of activity. Sudan was very knowledgeable about the vegetation and ecosystem in the rainforest and he grew up in the area playing here as a child - a great guide. The lush tropical rainforest was everything you would expect it to be. I Highly recommend this tour.

Real St Kitts

We were met at the port by Dave. It's a family business and his son was taking the group for the volcano hike. A scenic ride to the hills took us to the shop where they dye the fabrics, very affordable souvenirs. The hike was absolutely beautiful. It's hot, muggy and hilly but not too strenuous. Bring a water. The rain forest is beautiful, my teenage son was very pleased with this excursion. Dave had some home made banana bread and lemonade for us after the hike. Dave was a wealth of knowledge. Great day!

Hiking in the rainforest
May 23, 2019
This excursion was well worth the.money paid. Though the drive from the dock is a harrowing one because of the narrow roads and aggressive driving, you end up at the old rum distillery. The half hour there is time to view beautiful gardens. The hike itself is moderately strenuous. If your guide thinks the group can handle it then you ascend a steep ridge holding on to a handrope. If the guide thinks your group cannot handle that you slip that route and take another. Our guide was terrific. He gave us a detailed and fascinating description of the plants and local history. We returned to the dock with plenty of time to explore town too I highly recommend this excursion.

Ok Not Great

The botanical garden was small but beautiful. The rainforest tour was long and redundant. The tour guide was knowledgeable and stopped for picture opportunities throughout the tour.

Old estate and Foliage

The guide took great care of me. (I was the only one on the tour.) He answered most of my questions, which being solo I had no qualms asking. I really enjoyed walking past the other tour groups full of twenty or so people! The rainforest portion really does go on a trail so wear appropriate shoes. There's an exhilarating climb up a cliff. Don't be ashamed to have to rest for a couple minutes during the climb! The estate portion is full of history. Don't rush through it. Even the van drive from the port to the Estate is an adventure with history.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our hike in St.Kitts. The tour company was on time, professional and friendly. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. If we ever make it back to St. Kitts we will be calling this tour company again!

The Wingfield Estate was nice and the rain forest hike was modest and dry. But our guide made the trip excellent with his information, knowledge and personality. He showed use different plants and even the ride was very informative. Love the drinks at the end. Would recommend this excusion.

Loved this excursion!
January 17, 2017
Our guide, Doobie, showed us a great time, sharing his love of nature and St. Kitts. We saw a family of monkeys swinging in the trees of the rain forest and learned about plants from which you could make tea. The buildings left from the sugar cane production were fascinating. At the end of our trek in the rain forest, we had a local and yummy snack. I'd go on this adventure another time!
