What you can expect

Skip the tourist traps and savor true Caribbean flavor on this guided food tour of Basseterre. Visit 4 locally owned eateries to sample traditional recipes such as salt fish, johnnycake, and lemongrass tea while soaking in stunning sights of the coastline along the way.

Meet your small group near the cruise terminal and set off to uncover the mouthwatering tastes of St. Kitts. Begin with a leisurely stroll along the coast, taking in breathtaking views of the beaches, verdant mountains, and luxury boats docked in the harbor. After a picturesque walk, you arrive at your first stop of the day, the immaculate Palm Court Gardens. Here, in the outdoor oasis surrounded by towering palm trees and a spectacular infinity pool, dig into traditional fare like salt cod—a dish dating back to the 16th century—and a tasty cornmeal creation called johnnycake.

Loop your way back along the shore, passing colorful colonial houses and fisherman cleaning their catch in the quay. Along the way, listen as your guide regales you with tales of the nation's centuries-old history and the diverse community who call the island home. Next up is a charming mother-and-daughter-owned eatery called Gallery Café. Enjoy time to peruse the work by local artists while sipping on a mug of their famous lemongrass tea. Your tour concludes with a final stop back near the port, where you can refresh with an ice cold beer or freshly squeezed tropical juice.
