It may very well be the only time that you set foot on St Kitts so we will be happy to help you make the most of this excursion. We make our tours a bit flexible to give us the scope needed to cater to the specific tastes and desires of our guests. Our tour first takes one through the quaint historic city of Basseterre which has a curious mix of French and English heritage and a comely blend of old and new architectural styles. The stately Berkely Memorial in the centre of The Circus, Independence Square (formerly Pall Mall Square),the Co-Cathedral of Saint Johns/Basseterre and St. George's Anglican Church are landmarks of historic Basseterre City which was founded in 1625 by French settlers.
After the 'City Highlights', we continue westward along the scenic coastal road to the first of our three major stops, Romney Manor-Caribelle Batik which was once owned by Capt. Samuel Jefferson, the great, great, great grandfather of President Thomas Jefferson. The great house which sits amidst 25 acres of lush tropical gardens is now a batik factory turning out multi-coloured prints of exceptional beauty. A collection of exotic plants, palms and trees from all over the world engages the senses in a profound way. The Bismark Palms, Travelers Palms and the incomparable, 370-year-old African Saman Tree are symbolic of the glories of nature. The second major stop is at the majestic Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park which is perched atop a volcanic cone that is 800 feet high and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and neighbouring islands. Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is a World Heritage Site.
Along the way we will tell you about our interesting history and unique way of life. We go next to Timothy Hill for panoramic views of the Frigate Bay Resort and the ethereal Southeast Peninsula.
