After several good reviews of Carson Taxi Service, we communicated with Skinny Carson, the owner and arranged a November tour during our cruise visit. Hadn't been to Barbados in 20 years and am now pleased with our tour choice. Found our driver, Junior at the dock area quickly and asked for a tour of the local sites and a "local"... More

Booked in advance and so pleased we did. Although it was lovely and warm, it was absolutely pouring with rain when we got off the ship to meet Carson. So bad in fact that all the tours from the ship were cancelled. Gradually the weather cleared and we had the most marvellous day, learning so much from this excellent and... More

I had arranged a private tour for 4 of us of the island prior to arriving in Barbados. Carson didn't request a deposit or anything. The day of our trip he arrived promptly and we set off for one of the most enjoyable and informative tours of the island. Carson knows a great deal about his island and we learned... More

We contacted Carson via Tripadvisor. His reviews were good so we booked him for a tour of Barbados which was the first stop on our NCL Southern Caribbean Cruise. He was very accomodating took us to various beaches and ended up at Carlyle Bay. A white sand beach with very calm waters. Excellent tour, Skinny Carson was great with his... More

Carson is a gentleman, thoroughly enjoyed his commentary as he drove us round. Visited lots of extra beaches and sights as he took us round our chosen places. Half day tour ran over a bit but he was very gracious.

My interaction began with Carson late Saturday evening. It had rained on us Friday, and all day Saturday. We were leaving Monday, therefore that meant we only had Sunday to tour the Island and learn a little more. Carson responded to my phone call in less than 30 minutes. After obtaining pricing (great value) we continued our conversation via WhatsApp.... More

From the moment we arrived in Barbados Skinny Carson treated us as family. This guy gave us a grand all day tour of Barbados. We expected excellence, but walked away with PHENOMENAL. If you want a locals experience Skinny Carson is the right man to ensure you will leave Barbados looking forward to planning your return trip. Carson my family... More

We had a 6 hour layover in Barbados and we booked a tour of the island with Carson to occupy the time. We had a great whistle stop tour of Barbados, probably seeing more things than most people who stay there for a few weeks do! We largely dictated what we wanted to see but our guide also took us...

Carson is a very kind, well-informed man and he made this experience one to remember. We got to cover most of the island and got a great overview and some good history. For anyone wanting to see a LOT of Barbados and get a lot of history and interesting data along the way, you can't go wrong with Carson. He... More

We booked a last minute tour with Carson on our family vacation. I was hesitant to put my teenagers on a car tour when the beach was beckoning, but brave woman that I am, I decided to risk it. We are all glad I did. Carson proved to be a sweet, knowledgable man with entertaining stories and facts about the... More
