Royston’s Tours would be described as a cross between an awesome tour company and a friendly taxi.

Just returned from St.Kitts Saturday. Utilized the services of Royston,a
local individual ( email@example.com ) last
Wednesday for the day.
I can't say enough about him!!! We saw more and learned more about St.
Kitts than any other island we visited on our trip.
would highly recommend him to anyone visiting St. Kitts.

And why is he so popular?
Love your question! He should be part of the Ministry of Tourism! He is a
delightful young Kittian who works for the local
TV station and also runs his own small one man tour company! If anyone is
lucky enough to have him as their guide they will
never forget this young man. He loves to show visitors his island and does
a fantastic job of it! We had the pleasure of his
company for a week in November. We are confident that we would never have
had the in-depth experience St. Kitts had we
not met Royston.
He sincerely LOVES what he does and that's why he is so

I second the several complimentary posts on Royston. My daughter and I
spent two days driving around with him and it was
very enjoyable. He was friendly and informative, his open jeep was a
perfect way to view the scenery and enjoy the air, and
we had some laughs, too. Do be firm about agreeing ahead of time on a price
and paying him - he wanted to accept much
LESS from us and we had to struggle to even get him to compromise. I
managed to pay for his dinner, to catch up, but only by
He's so friendly, he seems to forget that he has to earn a living!
You'll like him.

I am sitting here smiling at your statements. You have given a perfect

I have just returned from two weeks on St Kitts, after having the usual
wonderful time. I want to know the telephone numbers
and e mail address for Royston Stevens that everyone thinks is a great
guide. Greg's Safaris isn't the most reliable any more,
as he is inclined to turn up very late, and is almost impossible to reach
by phone for any explanations!!!

St. Kitts is one of the few places I would travel to alone. I would suggest
you contact Royston Stevens and make
arrangements with him to be your guide/escort during your stay. He is a
fantastic young man and you will feel and be safe
with him. You will also see sights that the regular tours will not take you
to. Takes LOTS of film.

Looking over previous posts in this Newsgroup, there are so many comments
about Royston, all positive, we don't know
what to add that would be unique.
We instantly felt comfortable and "at home" with Royston, and left the
island with him as a friend. Quiet and reserved, he
never imposes himself on you yet senses when, for example, you want to stop
and take a picture. He also has a unique
advantage with his vehicle, an open 4 wheel drive Mitsubishi jeep with a
top welded on for cover. This is the way to travel,
as there is no need for air conditioning when in motion.
He does rain forest, volcano, beaches and island tours, or whatever
combination you want.

Now the more important part of our trip. Prior to departing for our trip, I
was reviewing the board. One posting made
reference to a young man who lives on the island who does some informal
tours. His name is Royston Stevens. Royston is 27
and I contacted him via e-mail and then telephone prior to our visit.
When I first spoke to him I found him to be intelligent and
somewhat soft spoken. He insisted on picking us up from the airport when we
arrived at 11pm in the evening. Royston drives
an older Mitsubishi version of a jeep. He has removed the top, installed
metal framework and created a platform on top
where luggage can go. This jeep is nothing fancy, no AC or anything like
that, just open air, but it seems to be very reliable.
He never did have any type of mechanical problems. The jeep will hold up to
four passengers and Royston.
I liked Royston immediately upon meeting him. He is very athletic and can customize any
type of tour you want. He can take you for a
complete island tour, spend the day at the beach snorkeling, shopping,
visiting the fort, he knows the island like the back of
his hand. He can take you hiking in the rainforest, biking for the novice
or the enthusiast, up into the hills or on a volcano tour.
You will not find him to be pushy at all. You can customize anything you
want, stop when you want or just chill out at some
secluded beach. He can show you the Black Rocks, visit Plantation Guest
Houses, anything you can imagine.
Something I found very impressive, is that people recognize him and speak very well of
him. Older women on the street would say “good
morning Mikie” which we learned was his nickname as a young child. People
at the beach would tell us how lucky we were
to be traveling with him as he is just a great young man. After our time
spent with Royston, I agree. He is trustworthy, a safe
driver and a real pleasure to be around. He will give you a set price for
whatever you want to do and will definitely be less
expensive that taxies. If you are the type who wants an air-conditioned
minivan, do not call Royston. If you are easygoing and
really want to get a feel for the island and the people, I suggest you
e-mail Royston 2-3 weeks before you are visiting St.
Kitts. If you are lucky enough to spend time with him on the island, you
will thank me. If you really enjoy yourself, as I know
you will, and if you can afford to, please consider giving him a little
extra, he is worth it. It is very important that when you
tour with Royston you ask him about the “fish pot stick tree”.
Royston’s e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Give him a few days
to respond to you, as he does not check his e-mail daily, but every 2-3
days. He lives with his parents and family. His home
number is: 1-869-465-0780. If you would like more information about Royston,
feel free to e-mail me and I will either call you
or you can call me.
I was so impressed with this young man that I have
given him my permission to use my name as a

I loved traveling the island in Royston's jeep. It's open and our views
were not hindered with windows . We toured Nevis in
an airconditioned van and I MUCH prefer traveling in Royston's jeep. We
loved being able to stop anyplace we wanted, stay
as long or as short a time as we liked and be on our own schedule. If you
want to really see the island, not just the tourist
spots , go with Royston. You will not be disappointed. He is charming and
knowledgable and so pleasant to be with. I am
certain I have missed sooooooooo much but we had a great trip and we will
certainly go back.

Although I had not had the opportunity to go on the volcano tour with
Royston as he was recommended by Darryl, I wanted
everyone to know that I had made some inquiries about him and I received 5
very nice emails from people who had gone out
with Royston and they had a great time. He does all sorts of tours and is a
real nice kid.
As Darryl has posted in the past, he does not charge as much as an official
tour service or even the cab drivers. He is just a
nice young kid who is trying to get into the business and does a real good
job and is quite knowledgeable.
The emails I received were private, but I thought it was worth mentioning
to anyone who might be interested in various tours
at a good price with a kid who is a real nice and knowledgeable person.

We spent three days with Royston last week, and enjoyed every minute of it.
If you want to have an active trip on St. Kitts,
and see as much of the island as possible, give Royston a call. He was also
really good with our 9 year old son, which we
We went snorkeling at 3 different sites, toured the island, and hiked the
volcano. If we had done the volcano hike with a
"real" tour group, I'm sure they would have left me half-way. It is a
really strenuous climb--it kicked my butt (note however
that I'm 40 and don't exercise regularly)! Royston was cool though, so we
just kept taking breaks every few minutes, and sure
enough, we all made it to the top. It was a fantastic feeling to have
actually made the climb, and the view was great.
We had the mountain and the beaches almost completely to ourselves the
whole time. Right now Royston is much, much less
expensive than the "professional" guides. He's a smart guy and will be
getting lots of business, and he could fairly go up on
what he charges.

Just returned from St. Kitts after a fabulous 12 days. Stayed at

I recommend them highly. Will be going back next year - the island and
the people are beautiful.

If you decide to take your kids on a tour....contact Royston. His
partner Darryl is absolutely FANTASTIC with kids (mine are 7 & 9 and
think he is the greatest). I'm sure Royston is too. Both the hike and
the Brimstone Hill trip would be fun with them. If I were you, I would
turn the Brimstone Hill trip into a picnic day as it has such nice

Paradise !!! St. Kitt's is so beautiful that words cannot describe it's breath-taking appeal ! Royston Stevens makes your tour so fun, so relaxing, with wonderful conversation, in depth explanations of the sights, silence (if you prefer), and a sense of true friendship with a VERY GOOD person.
Royston's tours are beyond explanation, as his personal stories and deep understanding of nature, make the journey a complete adventure. My memories of St. Kitt's go on and on because Royston explains things so well and will take you where you wish to go, personalizing your tour to your wishes. Having lived on the Island for his entire life, he knows the culture and answered all my questions so graciously.
Rain-forests of lush greenery, a majestic (dormant) volcano, sugar-cane fields with old plantations, the beautiful Caribbean and Atlantic cradling the island in their strong embrace, together with Royston's wonderful presence, make the tours truly heavenly. He's a man of exceptional strengths and wisdom at a young age, and he makes your journey a safe, yet exciting and adventurous experience you will remember forever.
Having travelled to St. Kitt's for a week in 2001, I returned again in 2003. One of the main reasons for my return was the wonderful hospitality I felt from Royston and his best friend, Darryl. I feel like I have a much better knowledge of the people and the island because of those two incredible people. Both athletes, strong in body and character, they show the
islands guests a combination of peace, tranquility, adventure, open-mindedness, and lots of FUN !!!!
If you choose to tour with Royston Stevens, you will truly have the experience of a lifetime !!!
