Embark on a three-hour fully narrated trip around St. Kitts that includes a guided tour of the 18th-century Fairview Great House and its beautiful botanical gardens plus sweeping island views atop Brimstone Hill. Travel through the capital of St. Kitts, glimpsing Victorian buildings, old churches and the slave market in Independence Square along the way. Enter the Fairview Great House, a West Indies plantation home dating back to 1701, to view the mahogany dining room table, antique silver service, the kitchen's original brick oven, and delightful Caribbean Sea vistas from the master bedroom's veranda. A walk through the onsite botanical gardens leads you past aromatic flowers, fruit trees and perfectly manicured shrubs — you might even encounter the resident monkeys. Your final stop atop Brimstone Hill lands you at a UNESCO World Heritage Site designed by British military engineers and built by African slaves. Considered one of the best preserved historical forts in the Americas, this national park, set on a steep volcanic hill, is also known for its spectacular island-wide views of the coastline, countryside and neighboring islands.
