Breathtaking Barbados!
, Apr 2022
Glyne was a fantastic tour guide! He loves the island and knows a LOT about its history, geography, culture, and attractions and enjoys sharing Barbados with visitors. The half day tour was everything we were hoping for--glimpses of the beaches and villas along the west coast, the waves crashing on the cliffs at the northern point, historic landmarks across the middle of the country, and breathtaking Bathsheba in the East. Wonderful all around!
Superb day

Our tour guide was a gentleman called Charles. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He showed us a lot of the highlights of Barbados. It was a very enjoyable tour.
Great half day private tour

We had a great time on our private half day tour. Charles was great. He was knowledgeable and personable. Mark was pretty funny too. Wink 😉

The day didn't turn out as well as expected.....spent way to much time driving to Harrison Cave only to find out they were no tours available. We had emailed Glory Tours asking to make us a reservation....they did email back that it would be unlikely but we didn't get the email as we had already left home...and the driver didn't tell us that! If we had known that it was unlikely that we would get in, we never would have spent 1/2 of our tour time driving to the cave. We asked for 3 things...Cave, rum and cigar factory....The driver took us to a Rum tasting that was $20 per person (In St Lucia it was only $4 pp ) and because we had run out of time...the driver dropped us at the cigar place and told us the ship pier was walking was NOT! ridiculously long walk in traffic to return to the ship because we were at the at BULK pier not the regular pier (driver knew that but I think he forgot)….. we had never visited Barbados before....I wish we had gotten more direction from the driver as to what would have been the best plan for the day....Bummer!

Delightful experience

Dwayne was an excellent tour guide. He spoke distinctly and was enthusiastic about his job. I highly recommend him as a guide.
Best driver ever !

12 people went on a trip with Webster , our driver. He was the best. Very knowledgeable and quite funny. He did have a calling and what he does is perfect . Thanks so much.
Nice Trip in Barbados
, Jan 2020
We drove thru Town for a while then went to the Caves for their tour, followed by a visit to the Rum Distillery. We picked the destinations and ended at the airport. Our driver, Webster did an excellent job and talked about the island while he drove. The Caves were seen in a trolley, but would of rather had a walking tour which they do not have. The visit to the distillery was self guided but one of the employees walked us around and was very informative. We did taste 6 rums although we did not purchase any.
Great tour
, Oct 2019
We were able to cater our tour to the sights we wanted to see. Having a small group with a private driver was the way to go. Our driver Lisa was wonderful.

Our guide Charles listened to our interests and gave us several recommendations, then laid out a great trip for us. We enjoyed George Washington's house and the Garrisons, visited Harrison's Cave, saw several beautiful beaches and much of the scenery on the island. We were entertained along the way with historical information, cultural insights and humor by our excellent driver / tour guide. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
