    Mr Rogers fitted in this rainforest walk for us at short notice and we were so glad it was possible. He was relaxed, chatty and put us at ease, adapting the tour to our particular interests (my husband is a naturalist). We walked through the rainforest for more than three hours as he pointed out fruit and nut trees, butterflies and evidence of the local vervet monkeys. It was fascinating to hear about the use of the plants, knowledge which is still held largely orally and which he has learned from older community members and family. The impression came over of a living pharmacy that people would walk into to get the cures they needed - some still used by older people today. It was quite different from the UK woods that we know!
    This was a manageable walk over rough paths, and we chose to climb a steep bank to the ridge (an easier alternative was available). I was grateful for the advice of an earlier reviewer to take the offered stick for the walk.
    We ended up with a welcome glass of cold juice and a tasty coconut pastry treat before being taken back to our meeting point in the open-sided buses used on the island. If you are averagely/reasonably fit and into nature, this tour is highly recommended.
    It is on the same site as the zip-wire experience if you fancy an overhead view of the rainforest as well! (completely separate tour) We did not but others were buzzing past overhead and having a great time by the look of it.

    We had a great time on our private guided tour of St. Kitts and the Central Forest Reserve National Park (the St. Kitts Rainforest). Our party consisted of my adult daughter, my nine-year old granddaughter, and me. We were transported from the cruise port in an open air safari Jeep. Nikhail, our guide, was incredible knowledgeable about all of the plants in the rainforest and regaled us with many interesting stories about the history and culture of the island. While the hike is not overly strenuous, it is a good idea to take the walking stick offered and to wear walking shoes. My granddaughter enjoyed the adventure of fording the small streams. The total distance of the hike is about 2 miles round-trip. At the end, he even played his guitar for us and served us an authentic St. Kitts pastry treat and lemonade. He provided transportation back to the port and another chance to see points of interest along the way. This was an amazing and memorable experience for all of us - the highlight of our cruise excursions. We strongly recommend this tour as a way to see some of the sites that make St. Kitts special and to give visitors a look at the island's beautiful scenery and travel along its scenic coastline. Hint for cruise passengers: When leaving the ship, be sure to go the information desk in the terminal building and look for the hand held sign: TROPICAL TOURS/VIATOR. They will connect you with your tour driver.

    Booked this for the day as we were arriving on a cruise ship. Once we received confirmation it asked to call when we arrived at St Kitts. We were going to cancel but emailed them to see if they could accommodate. They were able to accommodate and picked us up at the cruise port. It ended up just being the 2 of us. Friendly guide who gave us some information of the island on the way there. Walk itself isn't too taxing but take the walking stick offered as it's a rainforest so there are muddy parts and rivers to cross. Expect to get wet shoes. If coming on a cruise no need to worry about missing the ship as it is 8.30 til 12 so gave us plenty of time to get back and still walk around the shop ports. We were only slightly disappointed that there weren't many animals or wildlife to see but would recommend
