This was a relaxing way to enjoy Barbados. The open air bus was comfortable and free beer and rum punch and even soda was available to consume at both beaches we went to and on the bus. The two beaches we went to were lovely. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for about $10 each at either beach, but there was enough space to lay out our towels under some trees for some natural shade for no additional charge. I just wish there were more food options at the second beach because we were hungry and ready to head back to the ship to eat by the time we arrived at that beach around 11am. Read Less

We absolutely loved this tour.
We absolutely loved this tour. It was a lot of fun. You need to be prepared to pay 20.00 for two beach chairs at each beach but it was so much fun and the rum punch was great too. Beaches were amazing.

Used James tours. We had 6 vans with 6 in each van. We made stops at the old church, city park/beach, hotel zone, North shore, cherry hill, Bathsheba. James stopped when he saw monkeys and everyone got a chance to feed the wild monkeys. Some of us went to Lobster Alive on Carlise beach, others went back to ship and downtown and church. He then picked you up at a later time and took you back to the ship. James has his own boat to swim with the turtles that you can also book, picks you up at Carlise beach and is the best place to swim with the turtles that we have encountered. Contact James ahead of time at James Taxi and Turtle Tours at happiesttours@gmail.com or 246-260-4889. Just tell him what you want to do and he will make it happen. Great personnel service. Read Less

Spent my day in Barbados at the Hilton. Less than 5 minute taxi ride from the pier and this was was gorgeous. I didn't know that they were a UNESCO Heritage site so that was nice to explore while I was there, they also have a lighthouse. This resort was just full of wonderful surprises. They had an infinity pool, children pool, and larger pool. The beach was large and I liked that they had accessible wheel chairs, you don't see that too often in the caribbean. Read Less
