Fantastic 2 hour walking tour of Bridgetown

A thoroughly enjoyable 2 hour tour of Bridgetown with our fantastic tour guide, Deborah. Definitely the best way to get to know the history of Bridgetown. We were a family of 4, with 2 teenage kids, and we were all kept entertained throughout. The snacks and water were a nice addition too. Absolutely recommend the tour.
A really good experience

Our guide, Evan, really brought the history of the Bridgetown to life. Some of the really old historical sites are not much to look at right now, but Evan managed to keep it engaging.
Excellent seque into the richness of Barbados history
