  • Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area. And what beautiful countryside it is. More amazed at the scenery then to take many photos. I would highly recommend Viator for all your shore excursions. Well worth the time and the money.

  • Met on time and tour was as described. Calvin was a perfect guide and kept us informed at every turn.Tour was interesting

  • Great tour with Charles not Mark lol
    Highly recommended!

  • Our tour was great and the guide, George, was great. Small group in a comfortable, clean van. Well worth the money.

  • I could have bought the same trip in Barbados port at 2/3 of the price that I paid to Viator. The driver was a little uninterested too.

  • We had Cory as our tour guide/driver who was very informative with a very good local knowledge and a nice sence of fun and humour.The church he took us to with stand up graves had incredible views and the beach we visited in the Atlantic Ocean side where surfers gather was very scenic and beautiful with lovely coconut drinks. To test our listening skill he gave a quiz which was fun and lighted the moods in the car.We had opted to chill at a beach after the trip so he took us to Pirates Cove one of the best beaches in Babados where he handed us over to some friends there who looked after us really well.He also managed to retrieve some slippers a guest in our tour had forgotten on a boat which finished our trip with a nice touch.If in Barbados take this trip with Cory and you won't be disappointed!!

  • The air conditioning in the van did not work well. We could not understand what the driver was saying because he spoke directly into a microphone and his voice was garbled. When we told him this, he turned down the air conditioning but we still could not understand him. He did nothing to make the situation better. He was rude on some occasions and the tour itself was not at all impressive.

  • Great tour of the island with an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. The 2 hours at the beach was a great way to wrap up the tour.

  • Well worth the money. The tour is well balanced with history, sight seeing and free time on the beach. A complimentary drink was offered at a restaurant on the beach. Two beach chairs and umbrella are included in the price. Tour guide was excellent.

  • Very informative tour! We enjoyed the drive around the island and the tour guide as he showed us and told us about it!
