Super Island Tour

See why St. Kitts is praised for its nature and history on this island adventure. From the Botanical Gardens to church architecture and sugar plantations, you'll be immersed in beautiful St. Kitts. Travelers seeking a wide array of sights enjoy this scenic West Indies excursion.

You will set off from the port with your tour guide and other guests for a 20-25 minute scenic drive to Basseterre, the capital of St. Kitts. Along the way, you will pass the National Museum, the Berkeley Memorial, and Independence Square (formerly Pall Mall Square) while listening to your guide explain the island's complex history. Since 1750, Independence Square was the center of government and business. In fact, as you will hear, African slaves were housed nearby and traded in the square until it was outlawed in the 19th-century. Thereafter, you'll head off to the coast for the Carving of De Rocks, but not before passing some of the other historic city's prime landmarks, including the city's many churches.

Tropical St. Kitts has had a dangerous history, well-deserving of its current peace. On your route to the Carving of De Rocks, you will pass the War Memorial, dedicated to remembering those servicemen who gave their lives in the World Wars. You will also see more St. Kitts sights on your tour, including the Bird's Nest, the Bloody Point, and Old Ruins Plantation. Your guide will explain the incredible significance of each of these landmarks.

Next on your St. Kitts excursion, head through the lush rainforest, more than a quarter of the land mass to pass by the sugar plantations, previously farmed by slaves for two centuries, and on to the beautiful Botanical Garden and Romney Manor, a 17th century sugar plantation. There you will find Caribelle Batik (entrance fee included in tour price), which produces high-quality crafts made in the traditional batik style for you to admire or purchase as a souvenir. The Botanical Garden, Romney Manor, and Caribelle Batik are all located near to each other, therefore you will be able to walk around and explore the area for about a half hour before setting off to Timothy Hill.

Timothy Hill is the last stop on this tour where you will visit the South East Peninsula, where the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea meet. Have your cameras handy, as this is a sight to capture before heading back to your ship!

Please note: This tour includes the entrance fee needed for Caribelle Batik. This tour does NOT visit Brimstone Hill Fortress or the historic Black Rocks on the island. If you would like to take a tour that includes the fortress and Black Rocks, please see check out our other great St. Kitts tour by clicking here.

Please Note: Wheelchairs may be accommodated with advance notice for an additional fee of $25 US (not included), which is paid directly to the local representative before the tour departs.

Island Tour with History and Culture
December 22, 2019
We had a great time with our driver and guide, Leader. He gave us an overview of the history of the island and shared some of the local culture with us. We explored the Wingfield Estate and Caribelle Batik and ended the tour with breath-taking views from Timothy Hill. We were very pleased with our tour! We highly recommend Leader from Annie's Caribbean Tours!

This was a really good excursion offering many points of interest on the island. Our driver was very informative and took time to answer everyone's questions. We did not feel rushed at any of the stops. The Batik is a great shop to get gifts with island flair. Refreshments were offered as well!

Super Island Tour, St. Kitts

This was very informative and a great way to see the island, not just the port. We had some great experiences and enjoyed our guide.We did the half day tour which we felt was plenty to see everything we wanted to see and then some.

This tour was by Annie's and it was terrific. Annie was our tour guide and she was very knowledgible and entertaining. She was also very east to understand, unlike some tour guides who do not speak clearly or have too much of an accent. Well worth the money.
