Great experience
Nwa246, 25-09-2022
As a native but reluctant Bridgetown go-er, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the tour. Claudette was very descriptive, detailed and knowledgeable about the history of my city. I can say I learnt many new things, not only about Bridgetown and Barbados but by extension my ancestors.

I am grateful I took the tour. I came away with a new found appreciation for our homeland. Therefore, I would highly recommend booking the tour whether local or visitor, Claudette will make you happy you did.
Excellent and very educational culturally and historically

Excellent Job
Claudette I am humbled at your repertoire of knowledge you displayed during Walking Tour of Historic Bridgetown.
The knowledge you shared has done two things for me .
A paradyme shift within my intellectual consciousness .
My intellectual passion and an academic appetite were ignited for culture and history specifically for Historic Bridgetown and by extension Barbados.
I must confess that the lens you use to share during this educational tour was likened to living history because it was an interactive session.
I have no qualms in recommending this tour to my peers and all global citizens.
God bless.
Amazing Experience

This was such a unique walking tour. Even if you aren’t big history fanatic, Claudette makes this tour engaging and educational for all. Bridgetown is beautiful and full of rich history and Claudette adds a personalized touch which engages you in an experience. I learned a lot and would definitely recommend this to anyone! Be sure to wear SPF and have a yummy snow cone!
