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

A great introduction to the treasures of Barbados

A superb day out taking in Harrisons Cave, Bathsheba’s rugged coastline and some rum at St Nicholas Abbey. Charles was our exceptional driver and host full of interesting facts and information about the island.
Great Tour

Just done this half day tour with Dwayne our driver from Glory Tours.
Visited Harrison’s Caves, Bathsheba, Cherry Tree Hill and St Nicholas Abbey.
All excellent despite an overcast day but St Nicholas Abbey particularly interesting and informative.
Dwayne was an excellent tour guide and driver, despite his view that the West Indies are the best cricket team in the world!!!
Would thoroughly recommend this tour we have a much better understanding of the island and what it has to offer.
Well done Dwayne
Amazing Tour with Glynne!

Tour was all day. So many places visited. Just stop and enjoy each and every spectacle presented. In the background, Glynne was giving us the commentary and history of each and every spot visited. His perspectives were a font of knowledge in all things Barbados. Your tour and experience would be more memorable with him at the helm. Thank you Glynne for showing my family around your home.

This was a lovely tour and our driver / guide was awesome.Webster was his name, he made our day very pleasurable. It was nice to see the many landscapes of Barbados. Harrison caves were very impressive and the landscape around it was awesome. Nicholas Abby was very nice. We enjoy the rum tasting and learning about rum making and the history of the plantation, very informative.
Very pleasant day

Charles was right on time to pick us up. He made the whole multi-hotel pick up interesting by learning our names and exchanging quips. We were the only ones to select the half-day tour, so we ended up spending our time with him. First, he was a patient, knowledgeable guide. Second, we truly enjoyed the 3 stops. We've been to a lot of caves,but Harrison's is different in how young it is, and how modern the accommodations are. We went to Bathsheba where we got to watch men harvesting sea urchins - something truly different. Then we went to St. Nicholas Abbey which is not to be missed. Beautiful house, interesting history, and a nice tour. As we returned to our hotel, we had a great conversation with Charles and learned more about Barbados history. I recommend this tour.
Loved this Tour!

My husband and I took this tour on our honeymoon in November 2022. We were picked up from our hotel and transported to Harrison’s Cave. The driver (Quami - I probably misspelled it) was very knowledgeable and informative on everything from culture, politics, the land, etc. We loved taking in all the interesting information. Harrison’s Cave is a must do! It was a natural beauty. I highly recommend visiting the cave at some point on your trip. The tour guide at the cave is just as informative and funny! After the cave, we headed to Bathsheba Beach. It’s not for swimming, just to dip your toes and take in more of nature’s beauty. It was at Bathsheba beach that we had a light snack with some Bajan favorites (fish cakes, breadfruit, french fries, and the best pineapple drink). Please be aware that the tour states you will get lunch at the Sand Dune restaurant, but it is a mistake. We didn’t mind because the snack was just as filling as a lunch, but it is misleading. After that we went to Cherry Hill for breathtaking views. We snapped some pictures and bought a souvenir from locals that are setup. Last we headed to St. Nicholas Abbey. We had the best tour guide at the plantation house (I think her name was Asha). She was funny and full of facts about the house, distillery, and rum. I definitely recommend the St. Nicholas Abbey as one of your stops when in Barbados. If you don’t like history or culture then it may not be for you, but we loved it. If nothing else, you get to drink rum at the end! Overall, I would highly recommend this tour. You get the most bang for your buck, and you only have to use 1 vacation day to see and experience so many great places. Viator just needs to correct the lunch discrepancy in the description.
Harrison's Cave well worth the visit
John_M, 19-07-2022
Harrison's Cave was well worth the visit, and would be interesting I think for children too. Our driver (I'm 99% sure it was Armon) was fantastic - very friendly and told us lots of info as we drove around. Bathsheba was nice to see but St. Nicholas' Abbey just wasn't for us. I can appreciate the historical relevance to Barbados but the tour lasted about 10 mins and it just seemed a long way to drive for. However, all in all, an enjoyable tour.
