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.

On most days Carlisle Bay boasts calm turquoise waters with no undertow, delicately lapping on the soft white sand. This bay draws both locals and tourists alike with its breath-taking beauty above water, but also its’ thriving marine park that is enjoyed by scuba divers and snorkelers alike. Under the surface of the sea Carlisle Bay comes alive with vibrant tropical fish in abundance, sea horses, sea turtles, octopus, rays, and much more! This unique array of marine life is due in part to the six different ship wrecks in the water as shallow as 12ft. The wrecks are obviously another important contributor to the popularity of Carlisle Bay. For those seeking an adventure, you will not be disappointed with the sight of these sunken treasures.
Please note that the sea life seen from day to day varies.

Best of Barbados Tour
This was a great tour! Booking was quick and easy - we were lucky to be able to book just the day before and it all worked out perfectly. We started the day exploring Harrison’s Cave, then visited the wildlife sanctuary in time for the monkey feeding, and ended it by (what was my favorite part) snorkeling with sea turtles and around a shipwreck.
Fantastic full day tour with our guide, Sunshine
Had a wonderful full day Beautiful Barbados tour today with Sunshine- the best guide ever! She was knowledgeable, considerate and thought of everything we might want/need to see on this full yet very well-timed tour. I like long tours myself, but having a young child with me on a long, hot travel day...I knew I was taking a bit of a risk. But he nearly cried when he saw it was over at the final drop off! That's how good it went. I've been on the 1/2 day tour with Glory Tours (also great) but learned so much more on the full day excursion from Sunshine's thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of local life and landmarks. We drove around the entire island, skipping only the parishes on the interior of the island. I had been to some of the sights before, but Sunshine provided history I didn't know and contemporary perspectives on everything, not to mention showing us many new things, and providing countless tips and tricks for sightseeing, food, and getting around the island. It was by far one of the best experiences I've had in Barbados and definitely the best tour I've ever been on in all my travels to-date. More than worth the money and the time. If you want a comprehensive tour experience, pick the Beautiful Barbados full day tour and ask for Sunshine!
Had a fabulous time on this tour. Enjoyed everything about it- had extra time to spare as there were only 3 of us on the tour so our tour guide took us to east coast so we could see the beautiful coastline. Harrison Cave was wonderful- Welchman gully great watching the monkeys eat- Buffet lunch was plentiful and delicious. The only downfall was getting attacked by the sea lice which was out of our control. Swam with 3 sea turtles which was amazing. Highly recommend this tour!!
Exceptional tour to see everything in one day

My husband and I took this tour the day after we arrived in Barbados. We felt like it was a great overview of the main tourist attractions on the island and gave us an overview of the history as well. Not having to drive ourselves was a big plus. We enjoyed chatting with our guide, Kwame, as he was not only knowledgeable about the history of the island but also entertaining. We had a great time and will recommend this trip in the future to those who haven't been to Barbados before.
Tour was fantastic, but don’t book with Viator.
One of the best tours we have done. Unfortunately at our next stop the Viator vendor did not show and did not answer our emails or phone calls. Viator did not stand behind their vender, it became our problem. So buyer beware.
