Exclusive Views of St. Lucia
St Lucia Views & Sightseeing Port Trip
St. Lucia has much to offer on this Exclusive Tour and asks only that you enjoy every minute of it!
After boarding your air-conditioned bus for your St. Lucia excursion, usually in groups of no more than 20 guests, you will drive through Castries where various points of interest will be pointed out by your tour guide. Then, follow the winding road up the Morne for a panoramic view of the city, the harbor and even, on a clear day, as far as the island of Martinique. You will continue up to the Morne complex to view the Inniskilling Monument, erected in honor of the British 27th Inniskilling Regiment that captured the Morne from the French in 1796. This area is also home to one of the island's highest educational institutions, the OECS Secretariat, and also the main television station.
A short drive away is the Howelton Estate. This estate has a rich history and features a cafe, artist studio, and Caribelle Batik, where a short stop is made to see artists creating their works of art by using hot wax and dye. You will also have the opportunity to shopping for Batik items.
Your journey continues along the secondary roads through the hills on the outskirts of the city, taking you through small communities with scenic views highlighting the Atlantic and Caribbean coasts.
Stopping at a viewpoint within the community of La Guerre, you will get a spectacular view overlooking the Marquis Estate, once the largest banana plantation on the island. Your drive continues through other communities on your way to Monchy, where you will have wonderful views of Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island. You will then descend the hill to the private home of the Sonys' Stony Hill.
This property offers a well-manicured lawn edged by a tropical garden and a breathtaking view of the Rodney Bay area. Tasty refreshments and a selection of local fruits handpicked from the gardens await you while you relax in the courtyard, or next to the pool if that's your preference. Restrooms are available before your short journey back to the ship.
Cyril, our guide, took us around St Lucia. He was so kind! He stopped and bought us a bunch of bananas from a stand so that we could taste a banana that was “better than what we get in the US”. He was right. It was better. He also grabbed us fresh guavas when we stopped at Stony Hill because we had never recalled having a fresh one before. He also showed us how to properly eat a fresh mango that we got at the Howelton estate. Cyril is the best! Howelton was a great stop. It was fun to see ho they make chocolate and coconut oil and all the arts. Be sure to buy some of their well known chocolate bars! The food served at Stony Hill was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. My daughter took so many pictures of the tiny lizards that hung out under the trees. Overall, this was a great excursion.

Driver excellent, very interesting tour. But the road to Piton Mt has been out for two years, you should stop falsely saying that it is included. The driver immediately announced it, but he should not have to. We really enjoyed this tour.

While visiting the island, my husband and I were very fortunate to have our guide to ourselves. He was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He stopped at various points of interests so that we could take extra photos. What a wonderful excursion!
