    Exceeded our expectations. Our guide Karen was passionate and very knowledgeable about her country and we all learnt a lot from her. The turtle swim was fantastic and with that was a lunch and drinks included at a Beach Club. Excellent value for money ,highly recommend this to others. Karen is a absolute gem and an asset to the company. We will definitely do this again next time we are back .

    Would definitely recommend this tour. Karen was a great guide. Very friendly and happy to answer all questions. The Bajan lunch was also delicious. Only thing to improve is the meeting instructions are quite confusing as they focus on the port pick up location rather than the actual tour meeting point.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She told us lots of facts about the history of pelican island and Bridgetown. Tour lasted 2 hours at a sedate pace with offer of water , restrooms and chance to rest for a few minutes if required. A great way to learn about Barbados.

    Karen was a terrific, knowledgeable guide. Learned lots of history. Not a lot to see, but still interesting.

    A fantastic tour with Karen! She was a most informative and entertaining guide providing not just historical fact but anecdotes too. She went out of her way to take us to the Cathedral and to ensure we knew how to get back to our hotel. Best trip in Barbados so far!

    Karen is a very knowledgeable tour guide. We had the feeling that she has so much information in her head that even the two hours was not enough time to hear everything. I would recommend this tour. But remember it is a walking tour and bear in mind that temperatures can be very high.

    A lovely stroll through Bridgetown with a nice historical basis. You learn about the making of Barbados in addition to the history of Bridgetown’s landmarks. Personal and current touches throughout the tour make it feel as though you’re being intimated into city life. Karen also ensured stops for our comfort, which we greatly appreciated: some sitting areas to rest and reapply sunscreen, restroom stops, and a walk through an air-conditioned area. Finally, we loved that we concluded the tour with a commemorative photo.

    Really wanted to like this tour but I didn't. Unless you're coming from the port the meeting point doesn't make sense. It's a tour of Bridgetown but your meeting 3km from the town. Had to hire a taxi for both my family and the tour guide because the walk to the town was too far. The tour stated lunch and beverages but this wasn't supplied, was told it was an error on the site. Didn't really learn much apart from the Old Jewish settlement most of the information were ramblings.
