  • I was met and taken to the tram area where participants waited for the tram to enter the Harrison caves. I am disabled and when the tram arrived all the people rushed to get front seats, so I had to get into middle and in the center of a seat for 4. I was squashed in and as I couldn't stand to take photos, I really saw far less of the beauties of the caves. I was unable to get off the tram at the stops, and I would suggest that a seat on each tram should be reserved for disabled passengers. Even a side seat at the back would have enabled me to have seen far more. One does receive drips from above, but these are caves so one expects a few! I was disappointed from this point of view, and I am sure that to have fully seen the formations would have afforded me far more pleasure than being cramped in and seeing little. Hopefully my comments can be passed to the organization that runs the caves.
    I enjoyed the rest of the trip around Barbados, it is an exceptionally clean island not like Antigua and St. Lucia. The trip around part of the island especially by the beaches and at Bathsheba was beautiful and interesting. I would like to return to this bright island.

  • The best part of the tour was at the Harrison Cave. Very nice cave with opportunity to get off the tram and walk around the larger rooms.
    Charles, our guide, was excellent.
    St. Nicholas Abbey was interesting.
    Appreciated the precise email directions to meet the tour from the cruise ship port. Glad we were not required to call the local service provider Glory Tours for updated directions, as phone calls from the ship are expensive when your cell phone does not work internationally.

  • My Husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our driver was very pleasant and informed us of Barbados history, the school system, trivia facts, places to eat, etc. The cave was really cool and the guides on the cave tram were funny and informative. St Nicholas Abbey was an interesting sight to see. We were in time to see them crushing sugarcane out in the barn, which they use to make their brand of rum. There is also a cute little cat who lounges around. He's very friendly and I love cats, so any tourist attraction with a cat is high on my list. :

  • Interesting.

  • I believe this is the best bang for your buck tour in Barbados.

    This is a great tour option for those who are staying at an all-inclusive resort or don't otherwise want or need a lunch on their tour. Since the caves are inland, there is a bit of a drive to get to them, affording the opportunity to get a good view of some different parts of the island other than the coastal areas. Our driver made a point to tell us about many things we saw along the way--from the history of the roundabouts to sugar farms and other fruits, major industries, etc.

    At the caves, we took the tram tour and transferred to a new driver for the rest of the tour. The remaining stops provide an opportunity to see some of the islands more famous locations. Along the way, we found some spots that made for nice photo opportunities and our driver, Charles, was always kind to stop briefly whenever we wanted to take a photo. Charles was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we had about anything we saw along the way. While the tour lists four specific stops, you get quite a bit more, as you get to see much of coastal and inland Barbados during the drives to each stop.

  • The tour was amazing! Lisa our tour guide was not only very knowledgable about her country she was also very entertaining. There wasn and #39;t only complaint about any of the other tour guides at any of the other locations either. Everyone was very warm welcomed with history etched in their minds. 5 stars

  • Ryan gave us heaps of info, had a great sense of humour and was mindful of our anxiety about time and getting back to the boat.
