My wife & I like to organise our trips/tours well in advance for our annual holidays in the West Indies
We were wondering if any previous visitors or locals could answer the following questions -
1 Historical sites - Naval, local history, plantation/slavery days etc - which are the best to visit?
2 Castries - what are the most interesting things to see/do there?
3 Cricket ground - is it possible to visit the Beausejour Cricket Ground? And if so does it have a souvenir shop where we could purchase West Indies merchandise?
4 Reliable tour operators - can anyone recommend any good & reliable tour operators (with contact details/prices if possible) who are able to visit our hotel to discuss tours with us or would it be cheaper to hire a local taxi driver to take us on private tours around St Lucia? - If so can anyone recommend one (contact details if possible?)
5 Is it possible to visit a local school or an orphanage to distribute pens, pencils, paper etc to the children? - If possible can anyone suggest one that's not usually chosen by lots of tourists/tour companies ie Virgin, Thomson, Thomas Cook etc - we've done this before on holiday and find it very rewarding
I hope that anyone out there in Tripadvisor land can answer these questions
