What to expect
Be ready for morning pickup at your hotel or the cruise port. In a shared tour vehicle, depart for your first stop: Harrison's Cave. Once there, board an electric tram and descend through the cave's serpentine tunnels, passing huge caverns, stalagmites, stalactites, natural pools, and waterfalls.  For the next stop, choose between the Flower Forest or Hunte's Gardens. All guests can choose either location, as they are located close together. Hunte's Garden offers a more formally-kept garden experience, and Flower Forest features a lush tropical vibe.  Next, make a brief photo stop in Bathsheba, a place of photo-worthy beauty and spectacular surf. Stop for lunch at a local spot featuring traditional Barbadian cuisine, then head for the Morgan Lewis Windmill, Cherry Tree Hill and St. Nicholas Abbey. Taste the award-winning rum at one of the last remaining 17th-century plantations in the West Indies before heading back to your hotel or the port for drop-off.

Just take a taxi
Dec 2019 • Family
Big waste of money and worse, our time. We paid $700 Barbados $ for 5 people. We were picked up at 8:15, arrived at Harrison's caves at 10, but then didn’t get on the tour until after 12pm. We literally sat there for 2 hours waiting. You can easily take a taxi there and pay for your tickets for a 1/4 of the price. Go online and order your tickets for the tour and take a taxi. Caves were cool.

Whenever I read a negative review I like to take my time and see exactly when the tour was done and by who. Your review drew a lot of red flags for me, it did not add up but I did my regular checks. First I checked all of December for a group of 5 that did the tour you claimed you did..... there was none. Next I notice you said you did Barbados Sightseeing Tour Harrison’s Cave, Gardens and St Nicholas Abbey What did not make sense here was the price which you said was Barbados $700 for 5 which is incorrect. Anyone reading this can check on Trip Advisor that the rate for this is US$152 per person. 5 persons in Bds would be $1520. You paying BDS$700 and only speaking about the cave tells me you did only the Harrison’s Cave Tran Tour So that is your first deceptive statement. After recognizing you were a group of 5 who in fact did a cave tour I recalled we had such a tour today with yes a 8:15am pick up. I took a screen shot of your profile picture and sent it to the guide who identified you as Mike Kessel staying at the Crane Resort. You were not on a private tour and so after making other pick ups you arrived at the cave and went on the 10:40am tram. After your tram tour tour guide called me at 11:39am to ask me if it was ok to drop you at around House in Bathsheba as you wished to go there instead of back to the hotel. Although this was not a part of the tour and outside the route we accommodated your request. Now to your statement about the price. You paid US$70 per person and the Cave Tram tour is US$30 per person without transport..... Saying it was a quarter of the price was another one of your dishonest statements. To break down our rate You paid US$14 in commission to your hotel we paid the US$30 entrance fee for you and the transport was US$26 per person. This is a prime example of why people can’t take reviews at face value and how some persons are simply unkind and dishonest Some persons like to say the customer is always right but I don’t. The customer is a human being and unfortunately there are not only good human beings in this world there are bad and dishonest ones as well. I myself am a human being that states it as it is.

Awesome tour.
First a shout out to Lisa our driver, outstanding thank you. She is in the middle. This is a great tour, besides the three stops lunch is a fourth stop and is included in the price. Lisa picked us right on time in a clean, cool van. She was so friendly and she knows the roads. To say driving in Barbados is a challenge is an understatement. She avoided the construction areas and drove in a safe and efficient manner. Thanks Lisa. Harrisons cave is amazing. One thing that makes Barbados different from the other Caribbean islands is Barbados is not volcanic but a giant sea mound pushed up by tectonic plates. The caves although young are spectacular with amazing formations and water everywhere. You have a choice of gardens and we choose Hunte's gardens and actually meet Mr. Hunt. Years in the making they are actually in a giant sink hole. St. Nicholas is not an Abbey, it is a colonial home of and old sugar cane plantation. Absolutely beautiful. This trip takes you all over the island and you really have great views. Lisa knows where to stop for the best pictures. The second picture is of the Scottish District. Lisa knows her history as the first people in Barbados besides the English were Scottish and Irish criminals and indentured servants. Most of these people died because of the extreme hard work and hot climate.

Thank you for your great review. I always tell my guides that they first thing that a customer knows is timeliness then the condition on the vehicle, then how tidy and well groomed they personally present them selves and then how well they are greeted and how knowledgable they are. Lisa is very good at all of the above. She has been with our team for a long time and she makes me laugh more than anyone else. She has more of a dry sense of humour but she really makes me laugh. I am so impressed that you appreciate that we are different from the other Caribbean islands, I think this makes us special as well. I am also happy that you enjoyed the beautiful places that you visited on our wonderful little island. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I will share your kind comments and picture with Lisa :)

Great way to see something of the island
Our tour took in Harrison's Cave, Hunte's Gardens and St Nicholas Abbey with photo opportunities at Bathsheba and Cherry Tree Hill. Ryan was our driver and was bith knowledgeable and humorous. Hard to pick a highlight from the attractions but if pushed I would say Hunte's Gardens. Lunch was good if a little rushed.

Great Drive Around
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was a great drive around the island (we went to all of the various aspects - west, east, south parts of the island), the Caves, Hunte's Gardens, and St. Nicholas Abbey. We also were able to drive by Rihanna's childhood home. The only thing is that we were dropped off at the places and then went with different tour guides to see the different places. It may be cheaper to either rent a car or take a taxi to each of these places and pay the individual prices to get into each of the attractions. It wasn't bad, it was just a hefty price for driver service.

Absolutely outstanding experience. Started off being picked up directly from the hotel then onto Harrison's caves and to meet our guide Narin who I might add knows his stuff all the little snippets he imparts with are excellent. He certainly made this tour. Then we went onto Hunters gardens and onto lunch at chill n breeze where we sampled authentic Carribbean food. Then onto St Nicholas Abbey whos name is very misleading as it has nothing to do with a church. The tour which consists of sampling different types of rum was outstanding. Would totally recommend this tour.

Good and bad
Nov 2018 • Couples
The start of this tour was so chaotic and confusing .
We were collected by Callme who really should have explained to us how the day was going to work.
Once we had our guide and driver Narin then we were much better catered for.
I really felt that there should have been a coffee stop after the caves and also that lunch should be more relaxed.
We were rushed around a lot!
Narin though was a great guide and the sights were well worth visiting.
