"Great tour with personal backstory"

See full tripadvisor review at -


There is a difference between an island tour - and an island tour with personal connections and history. Jim is in the second group. Our tour included all the regular attractions and things to see with some extra personal stories about many of the places. The batik stop took on extra significance as he told us about what was there before and his experiences at the site. 
If you are looking for a drive around the island see all the sites and learn both history and personal history from an enthuisiastic guide who wants to share this is the tour for you.

“Ignore all other drivers and look for Rose or Jim.”

"You won't regret finding them and hoping one of them has room in their very comfortable vans. After asking a question to the woman at the visitor information booth, I wanted to get back on the ship and leave that island. She was incredibly rude. Thank goodness, we found Rose and spent 3-4 hours with a very knowledgeable, friendly, and..."

"Good People"

"We had Jim take us on an Island tour. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and unhurried. Other times in our stay he has driven us to other locations and on one occasion, taking us to the ferry port, he took us right to the ferry window and got us set up for our crossing to Nevis. He is a good person and would highly recommend him for all your tours and taxi needs.

Hi Rose,
This is long over-due, but we have been SO busy since our return from the CCL "Miracle" cruise (Feb.22) this is the first opportunity I am finding to say Thank You.  On Monday, Feb. 27th, my husband, Joe, & our friend, Frank, and I had the pleasure of taking your tour around the lovely island of St. Kitts.

We want to thank you so much for the comprehensive tour of your scenic island.  From the time we left Port Zante, we pretty much had the COMPLETE island tour (except for the Fortress, which was not on our "to-see" list anyway.)   The Caribelle Batik gardens were beautiful, along with the batik work itself!!   We enjoyed our stop at Black Rocks, with the refreshing coconut water drink.  :-)    We were very fortunate to be in the van during the rain showers, & they didn't interfere with our sight-seeing.

Lunch at the Reggae Beach was very nice, & we enjoyed meeting Wilbirt.  :-)    Wish we'd had more time to enjoy that beach time.    St. Kitts has certainly come a LONG way since the last time I was there, probably 20 years ago!!   I was very pleased with what I saw this time.  Thank you so much for showing us all the "hot" spots.

I will be sure to pass the word along re your tours, to anyone I know who is travelling to St. Kitts.  You did an excellent job, & we Thank You!!

"We were recommended to Rosie and Jim by our neighbours in the UK. We were in St Kitts for a day sailing on a cruise ship. I contacted Rosie before we went on the cruise and booked on their Panoramic tour. At the exact time of 8.30 as planned there was Rosie at the pier on St Kitts with her sign ready to take us on the tour, With 5 other people off we went as enjoyed a really nice trip of St kitts, the views the panoramas and the trip to the Batik factory,

Rosie's knowledge of living in St Kitts having left the UK years ago is excellent. It wasa really enjoyable trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Call her before though and make sure you get on her tour.

Thanks Rosie!"

"Rose and Jim Tour - highly recommended"
"We just returned from a cruise to St. Kitts. St. Kitts is a beautiful island. You will want to see as much of it as you can.

Rose was our tour guide. It was one of the best days of our cruise. Her van is very comfortable and she was very accommodating and great to meet. She totally designed the tour around our wishes, let us stop for pictures wherever we wanted, picked other gorgeous spots for photo ops, and let us spend extra time at the beach because we weren't interested in shopping. Her van is very comfortable and she was very accommodating. I'd go with her again in a minute."

"Rose & Jim are wonderful people! We met them several years ago (6 years I believe). We have used them many times on our visits to St Kitts. We have had them pick us up at the airport & have done tours with them."

EMAIL: Leslie, Marilynda, Melissa & Tom from Tennessee

"Hi Rose!
We are back from our fabulous trip! We loved our tour with you and wanted you to know how great you are. We felt so safe with you (sometimes you don't know what to expect when you book a tour on your own) and you are so knowledgable about St. Kitts.....we couldn't have asked for more fun or beautiful pictures and experiences. You never rushed us and were delightful! I am going to post about you on Cruise Critic because EVERYONE needs to have the great experience that you provided us.

Thanks again....Leslie, Marilynda, Melissa and Tom from Tennessee

P.S. The tours that the ship offered were approx. twice what you charge!"

Cruising the Eastern Caribbean - Book cover"We highly recommended Rose & Jim as guides. They bend over backwards to make your day on St Kitts wonderful and arrange everything you need, including hikes to the rain forest. If you want a personalized tour, contact them ahead of time to reserve...... Jim offers an excellent rainforest hike. He points out and explains the medical use of rainforest plants...."

EMAIL: Kelly Carlin

"Dear Rose,
Just a short note to thank you for the wonderful day we spent touring with you on the beautiful island of St. Kitt's. You are a pleasure to be with and gave us all the knowledge we needed on our tour. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone! I hope you can make it to your brother-in-law's home and enjoy some of Atlanta while you are here. Thank you again for a wonderful time."

EMAIL: Bev and Dale Johnson

"Hi Rose,
We took your tour on Dec 10 and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed it. St. Kitts is a beautiful island and I can tell how proud you are of it. If we are ever in St. Kitts again we would be happy to have you show us around again. Thanks so much for the memories.
Happy Christmas and Happy New Year!"

".....We walked on towards the shops and saw a lady sitting on a bench holding a sign saying Rose & Jim - we had previously read about them on this site and asked if Rose would take us. We were soon a group of 6 and Rose took us on a fabulous tour .......

Rose is from Leeds and has lived in St Kitts with Jim for 26 years. She is extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She took us to the Batic Factory...... She also took us to Brimstone Hill and the lava rocks where we ate fresh coconut. Rose offered to take us to a beach of our choice but we asked to be dropped in the town as we wanted time to take a look around.

We would highly recommend Rose and Jim and can provide their email address if required.
