First off it was way over priced for what it was. The whole ride seemed more like a Disney ride then a tour of a cave. There were more man made parts of the cave than natural ones, 90% of the tour was riding through the blown/ dug out portions and made a few stops at “exhibits” but even those were ruined because you could see the wires run for the lighting and the drainage pipes so the road wouldn’t floor. If you have never seen a cave maybe you would enjoy this but there was nothing special about this cave. Maybe the walking tour would be better but it was $100 a person and specially booked. We stayed in Barbados for a week and everything else we did was awesome, animal flower cave, Huntes garden, all of the beaches but Harrison’s cave was the biggest waste of time and money

Firstly - hire a car for $80 US and drive to the cave and then pay $60 per person to get in this way you will save over at least $60US per person if you do it yourself other than on an organised trip.

The cave has a tram so ideal for all ages and the journey through the cave is fascinating, well organised and informative, the underground waterfall is amazing as is the natural drinkable water. The grounds are amazing also with tree and plants and it has an on site restaurant (we did not eat in it). Ideal for a half day out.

Two of us visited in June 2018 for a mid morning cave tour. We were quickly sorted with tickets and headed for the modern looking elevator approach and area. The view from the elevator is a quick treat as you descend into the gorge below. Outside the entrance to the cave tour are some little gift shops selling all sorts of souvenirs and memorabilia. We were greeted with a small history and science room with some info screens around to watch and read. Then we were taken into a small cinema room for a 10-15 minute documentary on how the island of Barbados was created and how it exists still. It’s very interesting from the start and gets your mind ready for more information.
Time to get your hair in the glamorous hair net and hard hat before jumping aboard the extra long golf cart / tram car. The tour itself is very interesting and the guide is really knowledgable and fun with their delivery. There are regular drip drops of water from the walls and ceiling so don’t wear anything you cherish dearly although it is just water so it’s fine. It was pretty humid when we went down there so expect shiny faces on photos and not a lot of fresh breeze!
I won’t ruin the sights, but some are detailed and intricate, others are huge and outstanding. The caves really are interesting and well worth the visit if history, geology, science, discovery and nature are your thing. The tour was around an hour or so which means it’s a great activity to fit into a day with something else on the island.

It is a great place to spend the day if you are looking for an outing. Inside the cave is not cold so you can wear regular close. There is a restaurant and a snack shop n the compound.

We booked this tour through virgin holidays and I have to say that the “tour” was pretty much a taxi to and from the cave.
We arrived at the cave and were rushed into the “tram” so we missed reading all about the history of the cave. We thought we would get a chance to look again after but we didn’t.
The video you watch before you go into the caves is informative (although our 4 year old said it was “boring”) and just the right length for young ones. The “tram” ride was good and the caves are beautiful.
We exited the caves and none of the little shops/stalls were open and we needed just a bottle of water or a drink but our (quite moody) driver came and collected us so we didn’t get a chance to see anything else or get refreshments from the cafe.
It’s ticked off the list and when we return to the island, I’m not sure that we’d visit again.
It’s is interesting but if you opt to go, make sure you do a day and not the afternoon trip. Other members in our party did a day tour which included other places and they really enjoyed Harrison’s caves, but for me it was too rushed.
