Visit Barbados top attraction Harrisons Cave on this half-day tour. You'll explore the limestone cave on an electric tram that takes you deep underground, past waterfalls, pools, and many stalagmites and stalactites, while a knowledgeable guide entertains you with facts about the cave's geology and history. Then enjoy a scenic drive to the picturesque village of Bathsheba for a photo op and drink break (rum punch and fruit punch included). Hotel transport is provided.
After hotel pickup, head by coach to Harrisons Cave, located in the parish of St Thomas in the lush central uplands of Barbados, about 8 miles (13 km) north of Bridgetown and 5 miles (8 km) east of Holetown.
When you arrive, board the electric tram that will take you through the cave with an experienced guide. As you descend underground and make your way through the 1.4-mile (2.3-km) cavern, be wowed by its natural features, from rushing waterfalls and streams to calm pools and cool limestone rock. Admire the dramatic stalactites and stalagmites, and hear from your guide about how they are continuously growing year by year at a rate thats less than the thickness of paper.
Enter the Great Hall, named for its height of 50 feet (15 meters), and learn a bit about the caves discovery in the 1970s. The tram stops occasionally so you can hop off and explore.
When youre finished at the cave, return to the coach and continue east to the Atlantic coast of Barbados for a scenic drive to the fishing and surfing village of Bathsheba. Stop here for about 15 minutes to take photos, admire the views, relax on the sand and enjoy a refreshing drink (rum punch, fruit punch or water). Your tour ends with hotel or port drop-off.
