If Disney did a grotto this would be it. A beautiful cave that someone thought it would be a good idea to drill a great big tunnel down the side of. 100% accessible but 100% destroyed.

Sometimes you just get a feeling about something, someone or somewhere. There is no logic to the feeling, you only know the feeling is real and strong. For me, the grounds leading to Harrison's Cave felt like a scene from a James Bond film; I'm not sure which film but I could just picture Bond running around firing shots or... More

Fabulous experience. Easy access as the tour is on a open type train. The lift down to the caves have amazing views and if you're lucky you might se the monkeys in the trees

We did not make a booking but very quickly got on a tour. You actually sit on a tram and there is a roadway deep inside of the caves. They are genuinely spectacular with stalactites and stalacmites and a real natural wonder. Our tour guide (i think he was from Jamaica) was excellent - great mix of education and wit... More

Myself and my partner spent the morning at Harrison's Cave and did the underground cave tour on the tram. Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful, very friendly and very informative - she had such a wealth of knowledge about the caves! The caves are truly beautiful, and having visited barbados much of my life, I'm shocked that I had never... More

I reluctantly gave this a 4 out of 5. This attraction is worth seeing but it is definitely not worth the admission charge. We paid our fee to get in and had to wait for almost an hour before our group number was called. All of the concession stands were closed so there wasn't any place to get a cold... More

Did the eco tour where you crawl, walk and scramble through the caves. This gives you a much better feel for them as you also get to swim under the waterfall. Really good couple of hours. Good fun, but serious pot holers would find it tame.

I found this experience of great interests. The island country of Barbados was created 60,000 years ago. In the 1970 it was found and a mapping was made of the underground tunnels. During the process they found remnants of indigenous people dating back hundreds of years. For the evidence early 100ac. The caves descended down almost 170 ft. below ground... More
