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

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.

Learning about the history of the island from a very knowledgeable tour guide who made the 7 hour tour seem like it was 1 hour. She had a fantastic energy that made the entire experience worthwhile and learning about the island was quite fun.

Thank you Lisa for giving us a fantastic days tour around the island.

Nothing was too much trouble for you and your local knowledge helped us to understand so much of both the Barbados of the past and also current day.

We loved every part of this day trip - especially the monkeys who were rather lively ........

Interestingly our daughter who is 18 found meeting the owner of Hunte's Gardens her hi light as he reminded her of her late Grand Father so it shows there really is something for everyone on this day out. .
Excellent Tour with Awesome Guide Lisa

We recently did the Taste of Barbados Tour with the lovely tour guide Lisa. We really enjoyed getting to see some of the sights of Barbados and we felt extremely looked after by Lisa who was very knowledgeable and made the trip extras enjoyable. Would definitely recommend
Fun and Interesting

Ryan our tour guide was funny and interesting. He loves to tell stories about the history and adds his own spin too. He kept us entertained. Well worth it. There are 365 churches on Barbados, and a place to buy rum within 350 feet of each! Fun fact. We did the island tour, 9:30am to 4:30pm with lunch by the caves. The cave tour was an additional $25, and we passed. We got to experience climate changes, see amazing views, and listen to stories. If you go to Barbados, this is a must.
