    St. Kitts Scenic Railway
    Stop: 3 hours
    Your luxurious railcar features a service bar, restroom and colorful artwork on the walls. The upper level has an open-air observation deck with breathtaking views of the majestic mountain ranges and lush sugar cane fields, and the lower level offers air-conditioned comfort and expansive vaulted windows. Take advantage of the complimentary specialty drinks served throughout the trip. See fields of sugar canes surrounding the railcar as the railway winds around the slopes of the remnant volcano Mt. Liamuiga. Discover the hidden black sand beach and overgrown plantation estates, and cross steel bridges, including one stretching 300 feet (90 meters) across a deep ravine. You will also pass many villages including the Mansion Village and Saddlers Village, surrounded by fields producing a range of fruit. The colorful narration of the history of Caribbean and St. Kitts includes tales of the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” which was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s sugar plantations to the sugar factory in Basseterre, St. Kitts capital city. You will also be entertained with folk songs and hymns by the St. Kitts Railway Choir. At the end of your train ride, transfer to a sightseeing bus to continue your 12-mile (19 km) journey along Island Main Road. The route passes under Brimstone Hill Fortress and through small villages and towns before returning to Basseterre. Please note: there is no reserved seating. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

What an amazing relaxing day tour. We booked the combination scenic railway ride and coastal cruise from our ship. The best island tour that we did in the Caribbean. You have an opportunity to see how the rich and very poor live like in all countries that we travel around the

We rode this train many years ago as an excursion from a cruise ship. At that time the train operators were trying to get established as a tourist activity. When we decided to visit St. Kitts for a few days earlier this month with friends, the train was the first on our list

Great day! Went by minibus to the station, then went 18 miles through sugar cane fields - saw a vervet monkey in the wild (the staff were begging us all to take one home!). A ‘pop up’ choir appeared from time to time, singing snatches of tunes - and the pina coladas (free!) were

This trip was way below our expectations. Very over priced at $129.00 per person. Very little sceanry mostly over grown farm land, there were a few nice views of the Shore Line. The top level was very uncomfortable, and a very rough ride. The best part of the deal was the bus
