What people are saying about Castries

nice, just a lot of driving ...

Collection went great. Good vehicle with a friendly driver who hit some interesting point. Lots of beautiful views, right at the beginning of the cruise ship and the city from far above. Then rum and BBQ tasting at an adventurous stand in the middle of nowhere but cult. Nice viewpoint to be able to see the pitons - of course equipped with stalls ;-) Finally, we went to eat in a really worth seeing, original restaurant on the water with typical Creole cuisine, simple but good. The only downside: Unfortunately, you sit in the car for a very long time.

Enjoyed the tour and Fabian was very informative guide. Lots to see and do with no rush for activities. Only downside thought the banana tasting would be at a persons plantation site and rum tasting would be at a distillery not by a road side. Disappointed as we did in another country which was exceptional.

Super nice, memorable, unforgettable.

We had a great guide, I recommend Thomas, very kind, smiling and very good knowledge of the country. We had a very nice day
