"Hi Amicia. I just wanted to say thanks for arranging such a great day with Elvis and Ado on the ATV Tours. We had a wonderful time! Our two daughters (ages 4 and 8) loved it, and we felt very safe with them on the ATVs. Elvis gave us a great tour of the island, and Ado was a wonderful guide on the bikes. We even saw 4 wild monkeys while we were riding. Overall, a wonderful day that we highly recommend to other families!"
"Everybody agreed that our excursion on St. Kitts was the most fun. We had a great time, thanks to you! Austin was wonderful. We were really impressed with him and his assistant -- Sylvester Stallone
The tour was lots of fun. The bikes were in great shape -- very clean, easy to navigate and in good condition. Austin and Sylvester were both very informative guides stopping frequently to give us interesting information along our route. We got to sample fresh almonds, papaya, soursop, sugarcane and sage. Sylvester cut several pieces of sugarcane for us to bring home. We were hoping to see some wildlife in the forest but unfortunately did not. My son, riding behind Austin did see a monkey which disappeared before we could catch up. We saw no birds but did see several cows and a herd of goats with cute little kids.
When we got back to home base, a small parade of colourfully dressed children was making it's way up the street. We got to see them do their traditional dance and my son joined in. Austin brought out a wonderful cold, homemade beverage with delicious homemade bread. It was exactly what we needed. We got to meet some of his family and then he volunteered to take us to the beach for the rest of the afternoon.
Thank you so much for setting the tour up for us. I will highly recommend it to anyone I know who will be stopping in St. Kitts. I'm attaching a few photos for you to enjoy. Thanks Amicia and I hope that someday I get to meet you."
There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the tour so do remember to bring your camera. After an amazing exploration, the ATV tour returns to the home base, where tour patrons can partake of complimentary refreshments and take a restroom break, before being transported back to their hotel, cruise ship or other pick up point.
