Barbados Island Tour Excursion Reviews

Barbados is a thoroughly Caribbean island, complete with lush tropical foliage, colorful homes and a laid-back, "why hurry?" attitude. Get a comprehensive overview on an island tour.
I really enjoyed Barbados.
I really enjoyed Barbados. It's not as poor as some of the other islands. The city tour was nice.

This is a tour we piggy backed onto from a fellow Cruise Critic member. His website is not easy to follow and we really didn't know what to expect but we knew it was an island tour that did not include Harrison's Cave. Some of the scenery was really lovely but the streets/homes were a little shoddy. There is a very expensive area on the west side but it is a gated environment. We were glad to see the island but couldn't imagine going back either for a cruise stop or actual destination. Drinks were supplied; we brought our own Cheerios and fruit. We arrived back at the port about an hour later than I thought which was ok but it keeps happening for all of the trips, so keep that in mind. Read Less

This was our third visit to Barbados and our favorite. We saw Orchid World the previous year, but Andromeda Gardens was even more beautiful. The incredible rocky coast at Bathsheba should not be missed.

We booked an Island Tour with Glory Tours. Our tour guide was Calvin and once again we were very fortunate to have an informative and pleasant guide. The beaches of Barbados are beautiful. We saw many historical sites, lunch was provided at a local restaurant and we ended the tour at Payne Bay beach where we had several hours of beach time. We also met the owner, Sara Taylor, whom we found to be a most interesting person. Read Less

Awesome experience with the Five Star Catamaran Sail and Snorkel with the Turtles booked through Carnival Cruise Lines. We had about 8-10 turtles swimming around us and we were allowed 45 minutes to swim with them. They also took us to a coral reef and we could snorkel there or lay on the beach. They served us lunch on board with an open bar after snorkeling was over. Then we took a 45 minute narrated tour back to the boat. I would do this excursion again! Read Less

Barbados: Thanks to Trip Advisor, sent "taxicab or Sanjay" message stating our desire for his services. I cannot say enough good things about him. He was very patient with me while I was trying to decide what to do on the island, sent clear and precise information on where to meet him and was promptly waiting for us with a smile on his face. He even showed us a local eatery where I had the best rum punch. Cost $25 USD per person for 3 1/2 hour island tour. Read Less

Beautiful island that we do want to come back to. Was late in doing research so ended up booking a private tour with Facilitators Unlimited. They were okay but could have done better in some areas so I can't really recommend them. Do visit St Nicholas Abbey if you get a chance along with taking a scenic drive and perhaps if you like plants stopping at Orchid world or one of the other gardens. There are many beautiful old Anglican churches and cemeteries also which should not be missed. We'll have to come back for a land based tours as we really enjoyed this island. Read Less
