4x4 Sightseeing Safari & Beach Excursions
On a 4 by 4 excursion, you'll typically begin by trveling through quaint villages to St. Kitts' mountain rainforests... a treat to the eye, where you might spy green monkeys and other indigenous wildlife among the lush flora. Following panaramic vistas and photo opportunties, these excursions typically include an 80 minute R&R beachside & that optional but refreshing ocean swim.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $60 to $80.
Booking Advice: This excursion receives a moderate activity level rating because that bumpy jeep ride can not be a good thing for persons with neck and back issues. Pregnant ladies may face activity restrictions as well. For $60 to $75, and not including beach time, you can find some mountain rainforest excursions through third party vendors.
Fairview Great House or Clay Villa Plantation House Tours
For 3 to 4 hours excursions to either home provide you an authentic “everyday life” point of view of St. Kitts' culture and history. Clay Villa's history is significant because no slave labor was ever involved in this plantation's history. The Carib way of life is thoughtfully described!
Price: Adults expect to pay from $54 to $89 through cruise lines.
Booking Advice: Some, but not all, of these excursions include an opportunity for an ocean swim. The higher priced excursions involved a little something extra (such as tea). These excursions, due to the walking involved, receive a moderate activity level rating. For these tours, checking out third party vendors is quite prudent, and can represent a nice savings.
