So let me start off by saying my wife and I are in our 50s. We've hiked Zion, Acadia, Escalante, Bryce, Sedona and the grand canyon. This hike was as tough if not tougher than those. We read the reviews and concluded they were primarily cruisers who wouldn't know a tough excursion or hike. BUT, I was wrong... Its hot, wet, full of fruit flies hovering around downed mangoes, up hill, on all fours at times. We traversed boulders, grabbed roots to get up. I wouldn't say it was dangerous, but you will appreciate the workout. The reward?... Great views at the top. Do it, you won't regret it. Hilton was a great guide and kept you moving. He won't baby you on the trip but he will get you there and back safely. Do it for the experience, do it for the adventure... if you like a good hike... just do it!

Took this hiking excursion separate from the cruise ship and made it back with enough time to shop, get hair braided and sit and have a couple of beers in port. Took about 2 hours up and 1 hour and 30 minutes back down with about 20 minutes to spend up top eating the best raisin bread And fresh juice. We had 5 people in our group. And even with it being challenging, we passed a group that had 30 minutes on us.
Once we got to the top the view was great. But getting there was harder than I thought it would be. We had an owner of gym and even he said it was a lot harder than he thought it would be. And he and his wife climbed Everest. I wish we had more time to stop and take pictures didn't get to enjoy the jungle. The group got separated on the way back and my daughter and I were on our own for half the trip back.

We sailed to St. Kitts aboard a cruise ship and my wife and I were looking for an active excursion so we chose this one. We were picked up at the port and driven to the trailhead along with six others and Adrian, our guide. The hike was challenging but even the few older folks in the group were able to complete it without issue. Total time from start to summit was 2:14. Nice views at the top and Adrian passed out fresh guava juice and a local raisin bread that was absolutely delicious. A family of mongoose live at the summit and we fed them our scraps and watched them play. Good trip overall and if you are looking for adventure we’d definitely recommend it.

The hike to the crater of Mt. Liamuiga is a challenging hike and climb, but gave an view of the crater and view to the ocean. Our guide Hilton did a great job, and the walking sticks provided, the snacks and water were adequate for the effort. My main concern was that Hilton was taking a group of about 20 of us by himself. He wisely stayed with the slower members,but the younger and faster ones sped ahead, and I was hiking alone in the middle. I hike solo in challenging terrain, so I wasn't personally worried.Other groups had at least two guides, , which I felt, based on my own experiences as an outdoor professional and volunteer was what was needed.My concern was not with Hilton, but that he alone. Luckily everyone made it back safely.Hilton provided good info on the sites we passed on the way out to the hike.I appreciated getting returned to our ship's dock and not having to take shuttles back from town.It made for an easy end to a challenging, rewarding day.
