About
This tour takes you for a relaxing and informative stroll through the quaint town of Speightstown which is always awash with activity but somehow maintains its British colonial charm. Our tour package, which is tailored for small groups, is aimed at maximizing the authentic experience of a Speightstown tour through the eyes of an informed local. The most defining feature of Speightstown is the 17th century pre-colonial architecture. You will get to visit and learn the stories behind historic buildings that date back to the early settlements as you experience the sense of development that has taken place in the town which is evident by the integration of modern architecture. With forts lining the coasts of Barbados, one would expect that Little Bristol would also have its share of protection. You will also get to interact with the people of Speightstown. The wayside hawkers and rum shops are still very much a part of this town.

I'd give 6 stars if I could!

Carlo gave a *great* tour of Speightstown. He's done an incredible amount of work to assemble a thorough and enjoyable tour. The history of this town is amazing and Carlo makes it come alive. You can imagine all the forts that lined the shores, the signals being transmitted across the island when danger was spotted at sea, and how the buildings along the waterfront were used. I am glad to learn about the important role that S'town has had in Barbados history. Carlo is also full of knowledge about Barbados today which was equally interesting. I highly recommend this tour and it's a 'must do' if you are a history buff.

My Wonderful Walking Tour of Speightstown
Jan 2020
Deborah met me as arranged at the hotel pick-up and even returned me to Massey as I needed to do shopping after the tour.

I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours walking through Speightstown with a running commentary from Deborah.

She not only answered all my questions about Speightstown but my other ‘tourist questions’ as well. e.g. what is the small cherry sized fruit street vendors in Swan Street, Bridgetown? Well they are ‘Dunks’ in season during January and February.

I saw the Speightstown Mural close up and Deborah explained the history of Barbados that it tells, from Amerindians to Independence and continuing, with Errol Barrow holding a broken trident.

I was reminded why the Chattel Houses are built off the ground. The are built of ground and in panels so that they are easily moveable. A left over from the old plantation days when you might get asked to leave. This way you take your house with you.

My tip: Don’t be put off that the meeting point is an obscure seeming roundabout. Get in touch and negotiate a pick up and return.
