St. Kitts shore excursion company
 
Looking for recommendations. There will only be 2 of us, and I'm not wanting to put together a large group. So, if anyone can recommend a tour company who can give us a nice island tour (even if they put us in a group), please let me know. Thanks!

When we were there we were told that the railway trip, which is, I am told only bookable via a ship, is one of the best things. It was ....OK & we went at Xmas with carols & free drinks!..not a highlight for us.

John,
How long of a trip is this train ride and what all do you see??

I LOVE singing carols, and it'll be the week before Christmas, so that's perfect! I'd also like to know what you're able to see. Why wasn't it a highlight for you? Because of the singing, or was it something else?

The train just follows the old sugar cane fields, originally it picked up the cane to take to the processing plant. The hospitality was good, drinks flowed, & a choir travelled up & down sing festive things & traditional calypso (not soca!). I didn't think there was a great deal to see but maybe it was me...although to the person who said it was the best thing he had done, I think he couldn't have done that much!! A couple of hours or so for the trip. I think the better prettier parts of St Kitts were elsewhere, left me with an ''unimpressed impression'' Others loved it....maybe it's me...
