Located in the central uplands of the island, this crystallized limestone cavern is a testament to nature's mastery. Flowing streams, deep pools of crystal clear water and towering columns characterize this living cave.
I was really looking forward to this excursion very disappointed. Only one elevator worked to take you to the lower level. Then the tram took you down, the operator encourage people to take pictures and videos on the trip, BAD idea, electronic flashes and people blocking the views with the camera's and I Pads, selfie sticks, how annoying. We are in a cave and every thing is let up by electronics.
BEWARE you will get wet from the drippings of water in the cave and it is very hot and claustrophobic and one point the turned of the lights to show you how dark it is, really we are in a cave, got it!
4x4 Safari with Harrisons Caves. This excursion takes you to Harrison's Caves, Bathsheba (beautiful beach) and other scenic areas of the island. The caves are great. Our tour guide was fantastic and turned all of the guests into friends. It was great excursion for getting a sense of Barbados.
While some customers complained about the drops of water from the cave ceiling, we actually enjoyed it. It's warm in the cave (about 78 degrees F). We were not rushed and enjoyed the ride there and back to the ship. We had time to shop after we were returned to the ship.
This was a cool experience. We had a tour of the island as well as a visit to the caves. We wanted something different so we booked this. The caves were really cool, though I think I was expecting something different. We did enjoy it though.
This tour was JUST to Harrison's Cave which was awesome. However, in hind sight I wish we had a tour that covered more of the island. The tour guide at Harrison's Cave forgot we were waiting, however, so one of our group had to chase down another tour guide before we could get started. Other than that, it was very informative once we got rolling. Loved the tram.
Cave is relatively young and hasn't had a chance to have it's formations develop. Having been to other caves around the world this was not comparable. If you've never been to a cave before, it would be somewhat interesting.
The caves were gorgeous, and the excursion well-run. The only objection is the stop on the way back at a scenic overlook. It was beautiful, but there was no reason to sit there for half an hour with nothing to do. Ten minutes would have been more than enough time.
I give this 5 stars because of the professionalism of the tour operator and the Harisson's Cave guide. Foster-Ince was the tour operator. The bus was clean and air conditioned. Harrison's Cave was very interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable. The bus made a couple of stops along the way back and all told was worth the time and money.
We did the Eco Cavbe tour. Real caving. No trams or help. We crawled through the portions of the cave no one else sees. In water to our neck at times and having to shim our way through 12 and 14 inch passages in the dark with just a headlight on our hardhat. Been around the world. seen and done many things most people haven't. This is one of the top two or three excursions ever. It should get 10 stars.
This was the only excursion we booked off the ship. Our bus driver was excellent, very knowledgeable, and entertaining. The caves are actually above ground; you would never know it. After you watch a short video, we boarded a tram that took us through the cave. Our lady guide was excellent and very informative.
An informative,tour of Barbados included in the journey to the caves.The lifts down were good and the ride itself easy and relaxing(if a little wet at times).The Caves are simply breathtaking in their beauty! The guides were great and proud if their heritage and it showed!
