This page is dedicated to Liz Pereira of Pereira Tours. Liz was a wonderful lady and was very known in the cruise community for her wonderful excursions she offered in St. Kitts. She was very active in all of the Facebook groups and many people knew her. 

Sadly, Liz passed away in the spring of 2020. She will be greatly missed. I am very honored to have known her for several years and have been able to know her in person.
