I had a blast on our rainforest hike with beach time. David knows so much about the island and the local plants. The hike was not strenuous, but it's also not a paved trail. He also brought us to Romney manor. I found the the entire day to be a great value.

Hilton was an amazing guide helping us hike to the top of Mt. Liamuiga!! He came prepared with snacks and water (and even carried extra water for us because he knew we weren't carrying as much as we would need)! This was a tough hike, but thanks to him, it didn't feel as difficult as it could have felt. He... More

We hiked a volcano on Mount Liamuiga, erupted around 400 years ago, and was the best excursion I think I have ever been on. To get to the mountain it can take between 30-55 minutes due to traffic. The hike itself is very difficult so expect to be your feet for a few hours. The tour does warn of EXTREME... More

We consider ourselves blessed to have had David as our tour guide today for the Mt. Liamuiga Hike. David shares his knowledge of the volcano, the hiking trail, St. Kitts island history, current events and general information on island life. From the moment we met him, we felt as if we had known him forever. David was patient with us... More

A light hike with some scrambling over river rocks in a few locations...beautiful from start to finish.

I loved this hike!! The rest of my family didn't want to go, so I joined with another group from the cruise ship and we had a fabulous time. We enjoyed an informative ride through part of the island until we got to the base of the mountain. Our guide was wonderful, giving plenty of breaks for those who needed... More

Our tour guide David was AWESOME! He knew so much about the history of the area and all the herbs. He was like an herbal doctor. He took us to the Romney Manor on the Wingfield Estate and the Caribelle Batik shop. The rum distillery was fascinating. And the batik shop where you could see the women make the batik... More

We highly recommend the St. Kitts Rainforest Adventure Tour with Poinciana Safari Tours. Our tour guide David, who is also the tour company owner, gave us an informative tour of the island of St. Kitts as we drove to Romney Manor and the rainforest. David conducted our tour even though no other visitors from our cruise were on this trip... More

My boyfriend and I chose the rainforest hike and beach excursion while on a cruise stop in St. Kitts. We booked directly with David instead of the cruise line and received excellent customer service from him. He was quick to respond to emails and was an amazing tour guide. We met him at the pier and took a ride through... More

I can highly recommend the rain forest tour with David and visit to Romney Manor. We had David all to ourselves as no other visitors from our cruise were on this trip (we booked direct). He is a very friendly guy who is very knowledgeable about the rainforest, having grownup on the door step. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks David.
