Your tour begins with a drive through the capital, Castries, up along the La Toc road to the La Toc Battery. Here many stories will be told of how the British defended the island against the French. Continue on your journey bypassing the official residence of the Governor General before driving through the historic Morne complex to view the Inniskilling Monument which was erected in honor of the 27th Inniskilling Regiment who captured the Morne from the French for the British in 1796. Traveling on, you’ll pass banana plantations in the valley before stopping in the village of Anse la Raye - a typical fishing village.


Stroll along the waterfront and visit the Roman Catholic Church or shop for a momento of your visit to the island. A stop is made at the Marigot Bay viewpoint to capture the tranquil blue lagoon surrounded by the green hills. Heading up from the valley, visit St. Mark’s - an old colonial style house which is strategically placed high up in the hills and offers a panoramic view. Capture the magnificence of Castries harbor and your cruise ship as a backdrop, amidst the deep blue sea.
