Suggestions for tour for elderly couple mobility issues

Recommended Posts

My parents will be on a cruise that stops in St Kitts for the day.  They are in their late 70’s and my mom has mobility issues.  Can walk short distaste but will also have a wheelchair.  Are there any tours they could do just to get off the ship or sit and see the island.

 

We have do Carambola Beach Club when we were ther, but they don’t want to be on the beach for long.

 

Any suggestions are very appreciated!

We did the Grey Grand Tour last week and enjoyed it immensely.  Hubby has mobility issues too - cannot walk long distances and uneven sufaces are a problem.  Thenford was an articulate guide, proud of his island, and most helpful thoughout our tour.  Don't know if this tour would be doable if a wheelchair is needed though.  Suggest you contact them and ask.  Seems like a small, family run business and am confident that if they say they can do it for your folks, they will provide an excellent tour.  Am also confident that if they can't work with a wheelchair, they will be honest about it and perhaps suggest an alternative.

What about a person using a scooter?  Any idea how long the pier is/

IIRC, scooter on pier shouldn't be a problem.  But one on Thenford's tour I would think would be a problem.  They're real good about responding to emails, so ask them.
