An excelent experience....
An excelent experience. Beatiful historic property.
A must see for visitors/tourists coning to Barbados!
Going back in time to a 17th century plantation was a thoroughly worthwhile trip. Now a working rum distillery set in over 400 acres of land, but reminding you of the suffering of thousands of slaves who were originally forced to work here.
Family Fun and Culture
Our Guided tour guide Cleston was so wonderful and informative about the island of Barbados. His love for the rich history and culture was so recognized. He offered us many important stops with lovely sites to see. His assistant and driver was also aware of her surroundings and monuments. I would encourage this tour with Cleston as your lead, you can not go wrong. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ treatment
Trip to St Nicholas Abbey
Janet H, 12-02-2020
We were collected from our hotel by Kate and Cleston who drove us to St Nicolas Abbey explaining on the way about the new steam train ride and tour we would get at the Abbey. On our ride there they told us about Barbados and answered our many questions regardless of what they were about. When we changed our minds about going on to Sunbury Plantion we were not made to feel as though we were being difficult. Nothing was to much trouble. Would certainly recommend this company and their friendly helpful people.
We enjoyed the train trip with driver giving a talk half way round about the railways in Barbados and the informative and friendly tour of the house etc. Especially the rum tasting!!
The abbey is lovely and well kept, the tour guide Tonia was very informative and fun. You only go through two rooms in the house and see a few bits outside and a film show. It was okay. I booked through Viator it cost £101. The tour company rang me the day before and said Viator had undercharged and it was an extra 37$us -then they put us on the train ride which is not included in the above and rang the hotel later asking for a further 60 $us . So in total it cost £187 for 2 of us. I would not have booked if I had known it was going to end up that much as it wasn’t worth that much .
