Barbados Harrison's Cave Excursion Reviews

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.

Bus tour with driver was good - learning about history and culture of the Island. Harrison's Cave itself was very interesting. Staff at Visitor Center.... left us waiting with no explanation. Found out later, there were trails etc we could have enjoyed in this waiting time. The Bus Tour guide had just left us at the entrance. Port - Enjoyed a couple local beers at the Coconut Bar in the Terminal area. Read Less

This was also a return trip for us, but our first time to tour, having walked around Bridgetown on our own on our previous visit. This time we took a ship excursion to Harrison's Cave, which used an electric tram to guide the tourists around a huge cave formation and we thought it was a great trip. From there, the tour took us to a Highland overlook that gave us a view of the Atlantic-side beaches and then for a trip around the island to get an idea of the parts of the island we had not seen on our way back to the port. We walked on our own to the Pelican Crafts Village to see some local crafts, a place we had visited previously. Some of the work was extremely original and interesting, and a painting almost came home with us until we remembered airplane luggage limitations Read Less

With an entertaining, informative guide/driver, our scenic tour was excellent. The tour of Harrison's Cave was awesome -- it's really spectacular. It's a drive-through tour so no climbing or stairs are involved. Wear clothes that don't mind getting wet -- the cave roof drips. You'll be issued a hard hat and mesh net to protect your head and hair. Temperature in the cave is quite comfortable in shirt sleeves, you don't need any heavy clothes because it isn't cold.

This was a horrible excursion. Tour guide knew nothing about the island. We stopped at a view point and it was packed with people, everybody trying to buy water. The actual cave tour was interesting, but I had previously visited these same caves a few years ago and I remember spending time learning about the caves, this was a very rushed tour with little explanation of how the caves were formed. The horrible bus ride to get there and back was torture. The title of the excursion is "Harrison's Cave and Island Tour". We only saw the cave, nothing about the island was expained to us. The company that runs the tour is Foster Ince, I was not impressed with their staff. Read Less

We booked this tour company because the price was so much less compared to the ship price. We were a group of 11 people and wanted to be together. There was really no reason we couldn't have been, but they split us up anyway. One part of our group got in right away and the other part had to wait an hour. The cave was nothing that great. We have been to much more beautiful caves in the states. It was very hot and humid in the cave. Our tour guide just read from a script and was dull and not informative. I would not recommend this.

The excursion was great. Our safari driver was awesome, he gave us a good tour of the island and gave us plenty of time to take pictures. After the tour was done, he dropped us off at the cave. We did have to wait about 30 minutes before our tour started so that seemed like wasted time, but we made the best of it. There is a bar and a few gift shops that you could stop by and check out. The cave itself was great. It had many cracks and crevices to see. Our driver and moderator were awesome and very friendly. They gave us a great tour of the caves and added some humor to it was well. The cave itself was really cool to see. Glad I did this excursion Read Less

The bus guide was great, and we learned a lot about Barbados. The caves were okay, but not as "rugged" as we had hoped because we all sat in a tram and got driven through a "commercial" presentation instead of walking through a more natural setting. The film and posters prior to seeing the caves were well done and informative. The return drive to the port was pretty scenic, but overall it was average. Read Less

I wasn't sure what to expect but my wife and I both loved the beauty of the cave and our informative cave tour guide. Following, the tour dropped us off at the Copacabana beach club. This was a rather crowded beach however the bar/restaurant was nice and the chairs were comfortable. Read Less
