You’ll get the full measure of St Kitts on this trip, which starts with a driving tour of Basseterre. The island’s capital has the crayon-coloured looks that’s the trademark of Caribbean cities. Houses are painted in butter yellows and duck-egg blues. The architecture, meanwhile, is a giveaway to the island’s past. You’ll see French and British colonial styles here. Your guide will show you the Treasury Building, which was built during the British rule of the island by an Antiguan company. The government used to operate from this structure. You’ll also see the Circus area of Bassettere, which was built with London’s Piccadilly as its muse. And Independence Square, which was once a slave market. Leaving the city behind, you’ll visit Palms Court Gardens. The last stop of the day will be Timothy Hill. The look out here spans the south eastern peninsula of the island.
