So you want to book a Nevis or St Kitts shore excursion? Since establishing my web site, I have received many e-mail enquiries (from both cruise ship passengers and stay over visitors) about available tours in St. Kitts and Nevis and how to book a Nevis or St Kitts shore excursion.
In response to your repeated requests for more information about St Kitts taxi tours and other exciting St Kitts cruise excursions available for booking, I have put this St Kitts shore excursion page together. This page compliments the other pages about St. Kitts Nevis adventures, quad bike tours, St Kitts tours and island safaris, eco-safari tours, as well as Royston's personalized (island, hiking and beach/snorkelling) tours.
Here are some Nevis and St Kitts shore excursions that are highly rated among Caribbean shore excursions and which you will definitely enjoy:

Sample some of the local fruits along the way (guavas, strawberries, coconut, grapes and soursop). The area is also abundantly alive with butterflies, caterpillars and colourful lizards.
Under the careful guidance of guide(s) you will visit plantations of yam, potatoes and bananas with an opportunity to interact with local farmers. Beautiful song and hummingbirds adorn the trees under the canopy of creepers and vines. Observe the drop in temperature and increase in moisture as you venture deeper into the forest.
