Panoramic Full Island Tour With Lunch And Beach

Product Image
Explore every inch of St. Kitts with this comprehensive island tour followed by a delicious lunch then a walk on Friars Bay Beach. Along the way, see many highlights including Independence Square, the War Memorial, Wingfield Estate, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, and the Black Rocks.

Leave the bustling Port Zante in St. Kitts behind as you journey through Historic Basseterre in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Watch the city come alive as you pass by the National Museum, Berkley Memorial, Independence Square, the Catholic Church, and the St. George's Anglican Church.

Continue toward the War Memorial, a slim white structure with two bronze plaques containing the names of twenty-six servicemen who died during WWI and WWII. Three tombs flank the front, each fashioned of stone from St. Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla. Once out of the city you will follow along the island's main road and stop at Bloody Point to discover it's history. From there it's a short drive to the ruins of Wingfield Estate, the lush gardens of Romney Manor, and a stop at Caribelle Batik where you can watch a demonstration of this beautiful art form.

The next stop is Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved historical sites in the Caribbean. The fortress was designed by British engineers, then constructed and maintained by African slaves. This structure was nicknamed the Gibraltar of the Caribbean by 1780 but fell into enemy hands just two years later.

Discover the agriculture and green energy initiatives at St. Kitts Eco Park, a joint venture between St. Kitts and Nevis and the Republic of China (Taiwan). Afterward, head to Black Rocks, or lava formations, that were created with the last volcanic eruption. While here, grab some photos and visit with the local vendors.

Make your way next to the Sunset Cafe at a beach hotel located at Timothy Hill for a delicious lunch and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Your lunch includes a choice of the following fish or meat plus a choice of two sides.

Conclude your tour at Friars Bay Beach, where you can dip your toes in the golden sand along with the locals. Your tour includes all entrance fees where necessary.

You'll feel like a bona fide local after this scenic tour of St. Kitts.

About Shore Excursions Group

ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
