Brief history of our beautiful historical site of St. Kitts:
Our small beautiful island which is generally mountainous for hiking activities combined with our historical places for enticing and soothing your mind for sightseeing was discovered by the late Christopher Columbus who first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn't colonize until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced and luxurious development that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean.
To have a walking tour experience of magnificent Basseterre St. Kitts - the Caribbean's crown jewel - is to partake of paradise from a natural, cultural, historical and contemporary standpoint.
Kenny 'Captain Sunshine' Richardson and his knowledgeable staff have over 15 years' experience in providing guided tours of St. Kitts and will begin yours in historic Basseterre, capital of the mother colony of the British West Indies and the Eastern Caribbean's oldest town.
In the heart of Basseterre you will see the former slave market (originally known as Pall Mall Square and now known as Independence Square) surrounded by some of the best preserved British and French colonial architecture in the entire Caribbean. The Sunshine guide will also explain to you the significance of the Berkeley Memorial and point out the St. Kitts National Museum.
As you journey West from Basseterre, your guide will show you how our recent history and present day reality, coexist with ease. Passing the Cenotaph - a memorial to St. Kitts' sons who served in both of the World Wars - you will see the Fort lands area. Previously home to a garrison, it now houses elegant restaurants, a boutique hotel, private homes, foreign embassies and other diplomatic outposts.
