​Enjoy a feature-packed trip taking in the scenic highlights of sugar city. You'll embark on a journey through Basseterre, visiting important sights such as Independence Square, an important historical location because of its former role as the location of the town's slave market. You'll make a brief stop by the old sugar factory ruins - the first rum distillery in the Caribbean.

Your tour will then take you to Romney Gardens. These lush, tropical gardens are a photographer's dream and allow you to see nature at its finest. Here, you'll also visit the famous Caribelle Batik Studios. You will then move on to the Botanical Garden of Eden in Paradise, where you can lie under a large 400 year old saman tree which overlooks the Caribbean Sea. There's also the chance to shop at the boutique and gift shop for souvenirs.

The next stop on the tour is the village of Middle Island, in order to view the first and oldest Anglican Church in the Eastern Caribbean. Your tour will then head back to Basseterre and take you past various luxury homes and an impressive 18-hole golf course.

Your tour will stop at the top of Timothy Hill for a breathtaking view of the affluent Frigate Bay area. Then you will head to South Friars Beach or Frigate Bay Beach for 1 to 2 hours of leisure, when you can choose to go swimming, snorkelling, jet skiing or simply lie back under the sun.

You will then return to the cruise terminal, suitably relaxed enough to do a little shopping if you wish. There are various fashion boutiques and duty free shops and there are always great deals on jewellery, watches and of course, many different types of rum.
