Surprisingly interesting
February 20, 2020
Directions and description is good. Train tour was actually fun and interesting with drinks and local singers on board. The open-air seating was comfortable with great visibility. After the train tour around the island, our driver stopped at Amazing Grace Museum which was an interesting attraction, nicely done, on the history of the song.

Wonderful Train Ride
December 19, 2019
We recently did the Amazing Grace Train Trek through Shore Excursions. We couldn't of been happier. We were met at the end of the dock and taken to the train where we were given a great overview by the conductor and made ourselves comfortable. Our guide let us know that she would be picking us up at the end of the train ride. The next two hours were spent on our train ride seeing the local areas along the way all the while a guide was letting us know what to look for and what the background was. We also loved the service for drinks you received in the train car - and the choir that moved from car to car singing. All in all a very enjoyable tour - and after our guide picked us up she told us all about the other side of the island that the train did not travel before she delivered us back to our ship. Don't miss an opportunity to take the Amazing Grace Train Trek!!

Nice train ride

we enjoyed the train ride. It took us to parts of the island that we wouldn't see otherwise. Cold drinks were served and a chorus of three talented women sang for us.

Amazing Indeed

I wish we could have been give more person info at the Amazing Grace Church rather than a poorly made video. The train ride was wonderful. I appreciated the refreshments and downstairs seating. The singers were very gifted. We really enjoyed them.

Best Tour Ever from a very bad start!!
May 09, 2019
We were transported to the train station and began our tour. Unfortunately the train broke down within a mile of the start of the trip. We talked to the train staff to say we were on a different tour group. She informed us our provider was sending transportation to get us. We were very disappointed to not have the tour. When we were picked up by a very nice lady (I don't recall her name) who was born on Nevis and she offered to give us a tour since they train had broken. We agree and it was fabulous. She knew the island, the history (past and present) and took half her day when she wasn't supposed to be working. We toured the Amazing Grace experience and all the major sites. With just four of us it was intimate, comfortable and one of the best experiences in our many trip to St Kitts. My hats off to the tour company for making what should have been a bad experience into a wonderful day. I will definitely use them again any time I am in the area.

A Must
March 31, 2019
This is a fantastic tour. Not only do you see things not visible from the road, the train is a blast. The narration is highly informative. They serve free drinks, and even had entertainment. If you are going to St. Maarten this is a must! Our tour also included a stop at the Amazing Grace museum. Although small, the story of John Newton's transformation and how he came to compose Amazing Grace is fascinating.

train trek
March 09, 2019
Wow, we really enjoyed the trek by van and train. One other couple and us, our driver/ guide was great and we got to the train first so we had great seats. The van ride back to the ship took us all around the island with local color from our guide. Well worth the $.

Sit Back and Relax
February 19, 2019
This is a nice tour. The train ride is good to sit back, relax and enjoy the views of the largely uninhabited interior of the island. The stop at the Amazing Grace museum is additional to what boat tours offer. The museum stop is a quick but interesting video.

Amazing Grace Train Trek
May 30, 2018
This tour was quite enjoyable and not what we had expected. The only request we would like to make is to have them oil the train tracks so they didn't squeal so much. The trek included free drinks (strawberry daiquiris, etc) which were tasty. The onboard 3 girl chorus was very nice. The narrator gave a very details story about the area we were trekking through.
