What to expect
After being picked up from your Barbados hotel, meet your guide and small group of up to 12 people, and set out to the island’s East Coast. After a quick stop to admire the views from Cherry Tree Hill, arrive at Morgan Lewis Windmill, the island’s last remaining sugar mill. Enjoy a guided tour of the historic mill, watch a sugar grinding demonstration, and sample a glass of sweet sugar cane juice. Continue along the coast to Bathsheba, one of the island’s most stunning beaches. Then, stop at St John's Church, a 17th-century Gothic style church located in a stunning cliff-top setting, affording impressive views along the coast. Head toward the West Coast, passing through St George’s Parish and the Gun Hill signal station on the way to Bridgetown. Then, spend time exploring the Garrison Historic Area, part of the Bridgetown UNESCO World Heritage site, and learn more about the island’s colonial history and independence. Next up is Copacaban on Carlisle Bay, where you can enjoy some beach time after you're provided a welcome drink. At the end of your tour, opt to either be dropped back at your hotel or cruise port, or continue sightseeing in Bridgetown, then make your own way back to your hotel.

First stop on our cruise.
Feb 2020
We arrived February 18th in Barbados 8am was our disembarkation time, ships captain is on the ships intercom telling passengers that the disembarkation will be delayed due to the Barbados health authority wants to inspect the ship before passengers can disembark. At 9am we are notified by the captain that we can now disembark, by the time we got off the ship it was 9:30 am instead of 8:00am. This is a time when the virus was just starting to show up on cruise ships. The tour operator told us that the tour couldn't wait and left without us two other couples and a single lady were left stranded! So went the taxi stand and got the same tour for $60 each instead of $172 for 2 people. When we got back And contacted Tripadvisor did they investigate yup they contacted the tour group and did not contact the cruise line to verify our story. So no refund, if we would have booked a similar tour through the cruise line we would have got our money back or they would have waited for us. Morale of the story wait to get off the ship and get a tour dockside our get the tour through the cruise line. When things start backup delays and denial of port entry will be the norm if you book with this company and Tripadvisor you are going to be out of luck for any pre booked tours with these companies they will take your money and you will do without. The cruise line was Norwegian we booked 4 tours through them and they went smoothly. Glory tours was the tour operator in Barbados they would be the last tour operator we would ever use when we return to Barbados. We enjoyed our tour of Barbados and the shopping we did with the locals.

I am sorry that we were unable to wait for you. there were supposed to be a total of 11 persons on this tour. All from Norwegian Epic. 9 persons showed up on time and we departed for the tour. You however showed up nearly and hour after. It is for they reason that you were not refunded had others been delayed we would have waited or refunded you. I should also add that no delay was experienced by our 8:35am departure that also had persons from your ship. I am not sure why you were the only persons delayed on your ship.

An excellent day out....
What a fantastic day,
Webster our host for the day, was such an amazing man, hugely knowledgable and thoroughly entertaining. The Island Tour was just what we needed, we had some stops along the way at places of interest, a delightful lunch at the Flower Cave, and a snack at the Theological Collage.
The true highlight of the day was Webster!!

This was a great way to have a look around the island. Amazing views from a couple of locations. Great places to take photos and road side markets were in most places that we pulled up. So glad we did this tour, we had a fantastic tour guide that knew all the facts and was happy to pass on information about everything. Thanks for a great tour.

Good Tour
May 2019 • Couples
Nice 2/3 hour tour through the main points of the island.

Nice stop at the end where you spend an hour on Carlisle bay which is a great white sanded beach which ironically was opposite the Hilton where we were staying.

No lunch is provided but 2 rum punch`s were given to us at the end on a bar on Carlisle Bay.

Don't forget your camera and some money for souvenirs along the way. Also you have a few hours on a beach so don't forget your towels sun cream and maybe some extra dollars for something to eat.

Top notch guide made all the difference.
Feb 2019 • Couples
I'm not certain of the title of our tour, but we visited a former sugar plantation--saw a working windmill and gorgeous view amid the mahogany trees. We visited an Anglican church from the 1600's, with a beautiful views and a historic cemetery behind it. Of course there were beautiful beach stops. While the sights were wonderful, our guide exhibited such good humor and made everyone a part of the experience that we all knew each other by the time it was over. We had a lot of laughs, and made new friends. Webster was knowledgeable and fun.

Very interesting tour if you want to know more about Barbados and its topography.
Feb 2019 • Couples
Went on a 4-hour tour in a van with 6 other people. Tour guide was very informative out the island and history. Stopped at several locations along the way such as the last windmill on the island (beautiful views from here); the old St. John church from 1645 I believe, which also had nice views behind it; Bathsheba beach (where professional surfing takes place--they say it's too dangerous to swim there. Also saw sand dunes (not the kind you see in Florida), almond trees, banana trees, sugar cane. At the beginning of the tour we went up the west side of the island and our guide pointed out Sandy Lane golf resort and said Rihanna's house was nearby, but we couldn't see it. The final 40 minutes of the tour was mainly driving down hilly, windy roads to get back to the more populated part of the island. We thought it was a very good tour other than you can't really take any picture from the van as the way it's designed the roof and part of the top area above the windows are metal so you can't really look "up" towards the hills to see much while in the van. But it's easy to see things when not on the steepest part of the tour.
