The narrow gauge St. Kitts scenic railway is one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. Originally built in 1912 to deliver sugarcane from the fields to the sugar mill in Basseterre, the "Last Railway in the West Indies" now provides a...more

My group of 6 just returned from a Holland America cruise that offered this railway excursion on St. Kitts. To begin with the bad part, the train broke down halfway through the trip in the middle of nowhere so we sat not knowing whether it...More
We booked this excursion through the cruise ship. It wasn't the most exciting excursion, but it was fun and interesting, and we got to see a lot of the island, some that you cannot see from a car or boat. During the ride, a very...More

After a few days of more rigorous excursions from a cruse ship, this morning tour of the island by way of an old sugar can railway was exactly what we needed. Our friendly and informative driver Teddy picked us up right from the port in...More
