We thought this train ride was very informative, and the views were beautiful. The staff is VERY well organized and attentive. The drinks were tasty! Each train car has its own bathroom...very helpful. At the dock we were escorted to a nicely air conditioned bus, which took us to the depot, then guided to the train car where we had our own attendant, and escorted back to the bus and taken on another tour of the island on the way back to the ship. Enjoyed our excursion very much! Read Less

Sail Date: June 2017
2 hours or 18 miles by train & 1 hour by bus for last 12 miles. Took us all the way around the island. We had the only female guide / buss driver. She really knew her stuff about St. Kitts. Worth the money.

Very interesting to see the land from a train, a very small train. But it ran approximately 70% around St. Kitts along the shore. The views were wonderful and the tour guide very informative.

I felt this was a lot of money for this tour. Also, the railroad part was way too long. Most of the time on the tour we were looking at trash in peoples yards. I don't think I would recommend this tour.
