What To Expect

Eco-Adventure Park at Harrison’s Cave
The spectacular HARRISON'S CAVE in Barbados is geographically located in the centre of the island, a natural phenomenon unique to the tropical world. Specially designed transport takes you down through the underground tunnels to a sight so beautiful, that few can compare.

In the specially lighted caverns at Harrison's Cave, view the majestic stalactites and stalagmites which have been growing from the floors and ceilings for many centuries. Cascading through the caves, the crystal blue waters form magnificent pools and waterfalls, filling the senses with sights and sounds of such pure wonder.

Bathsheba Beach
Bathsheba is located on the Eastern coastline of Barbados. It is said that this area was named after the wife of King David whose name was “Bathsheba”. Legend has it that she bathed in milk to keep her skin beautiful and soft, and the rolling surf waters of Bathsheba’s “Soup Bowl” resembled Bathsheba’s bath. The area is popular with surfers. It is a popular area for locals and visitors alike and is dotted with several seaside cottages.

Cherry Tree Hill
Cherry Tree Hill is eight hundred and fifty (850) ft above sea level and is a part of St. Nicholas Abbey plantation. Actually due to the size of the St. Nicholas Abbey property, Cherry Tree Hill actually borders, St.Peter and St. Andrew. Many years ago, the drive on either side to get to it was flanked by cherry trees, thus the reason for its name; however these were replaced with mahogany trees which now line the road. The trees were planted in celebration of the signing of The Treaty of Paris in 1763

St. Nicholas Abbey
St Nicholas Abbey is located in Saint Peter, Barbados, and is a plantation house, museum and rum distillery Colonel Benjamin Berringer built the house in 1658. This house is one of only three genuine Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere. It's similar to the English Jacobean-era manor houses of the first half of the seventeenth century, the period between the Tudor and Georgian styles, beginning in the reign of James I.

Barbados Wildlife Reserve
The Barbados Wildlife Reserve lies in an enclosed area under a canopy of mahogany trees with winding red brick pathways beneath. If you look closely at the bricks, you can still see the stamps of the manufacturing companies. The bricks were brought to Barbados by ships, which used them as ballast. During the 17th and 18th centuries, these red bricks were used to construct boiler furnaces in Barbados sugar factories. The large wheel in front of the snack bar was acquired from an old sugar factory and was once used to drive rollers for crushing the sugar cane.

The most popular animal at the Reserve is The Barbados Green Monkey. The monkey has brown and grey thick fur that has yellow and olive green flecks in it as an adult. In some lights, the monkey can appear green. This is why they are called green monkeys. Barbados Green Monkeys generally live in groups of fifteen to twenty. Within a family group, males gain their dominance by their size, strength and their ability to fight. Females, however, get their rank by the size of their families. Most infants are born during April and May.

Other animals that can be found in the reserve include tortoises, mallards, peacocks, guinea foul, caiman, iguana, rabbits and a collection of various birds. There is also a large python that was a gift from the Ravensden Zoo in the United Kingdom. The deer found in the reserve are Brocket deer and were a gift from the Emperor Valley Zoo in Trinidad

So many monkeys!
Katygo1, 16-06-2022
Ryan was a spectacular guide for our group of 5. There were so many monkeys jumping all around us. Lunch was a choice of chicken or fried flying fish which we had the later (so good!). Ryan stopped to grab sugar cane and mangoes for us to try which was above and beyond (much appreciated by us all). Great trip!

Wonderful Guide who showed us round these attractions in Barbados. He went above and beyond and gave us the history of many of the attractions visited
Fantastic Day, Excellent Guide!

Fabulous day with the lovely Steven as a tour guide. He was brilliant, very knowledgeable, helpful and knew exactly how much to speak (a key skill some tour guides miss!) Would recommend this to anyone looking to see the main attractions in Barbados. We were ahead of the crowds at all stops and squeezed a lot into a short space of time.
Loved it !

This was our first trip to Barbados and it will be memorable to us. Charles was our tour guide and it was just us in the tour van for the day so it made it more special. There wasnt a boring moment. Charles is very humble and cheerful. He told us many things about the island as we made our way from landmark to landmark. There is ample amount of time to view all locations and take in all that they offer. I would probably prefer to maybe even get on the steam train at St Nicholas abbey for a few more bucks. But even though thats not included everything else offered on the tour was more than reasonable. Lunch was good as well, Authentic bajan cuisine. Will definitely recommend this tour to anyone who visits the island. Guides who work for this company seem to love what they do and it makes it a great experience for those who are on the tour.
Brilliant way to see the island
