Enjoyed this trip a lot. The 'jeep' (actually a Toyota Landcruiser) was very comfortable considering how bumpy this journey was in places, padded seats and backrest as well as seat belts made this an 'armchair' offroad experience. Ivan was humorous and knowledgeable and the mike/speaker system meant that we heard every word. Frequent stops for refreshments and great views/photo opportunities... More

My husband and I knew that our short (5 days) first visit to Barbados wasn't long enough to really get to experience the island, so we decided to try Island Safari Barbados' Adventure Safari. We were the first ones in the jeep - closest to the cab. This is a great location if you enjoy a wonderful wind in your... More

Ian arrived in his Toyota Land-cruiser dead on time, I'm not as mobile as I used to be but Ian took very good care of me getting in and out of the Jeep. Our fellow passengers were great and it was obvious that we were all up for a good day. There were a lot of diversions on the roads... More

Our group of 7 did a half day island tour during our stay. From the onset our guide 'Ivan' put us in the right mood and prepared us for our journey by saying "this isn't a bus tour ladies, this is a safari tour," LOL. We were met at our hotel on time (around 9:00am) and taken through several parishes... More

We have been to Barbados a number of times and usual book with Calabaza and have an amazing day. We booked this time with Island Safari for their Adventure Safari tour to see more of the island by land. If you are looking for something outside of a bus tour, this is the trip for you. The jeeps are open... More

Wasn't expecting this to be as entertaining as it was. Ian was great - amazingly inclusive and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves and happy. We enjoyed his homemade jungle juice and learnt a lot about the nature, buildings and sites of interest around the island. Thank you Ian. You are so eloquent - you should write a book!

we booked with Island Safari tours thinking we would see some of the island. Well let me tell you we saw alot of the island and drove on the roads we would never find on our own. A part of the trip was off road but most was on road. Our guide Omar known as the preacher was funny, informative... More

My boyfriend and I tried the five hour Adventure Safari and both of us were highly impressed. Our guide, Ian (or Erin/Aaron?), was hilarious and knew all the historical ins and outs of the island along with many interesting tidbits. He stopped often to allow us to take pictures and had drinks (rum punch, pineapple, etc.) prepared whenever we arrived... More

Good way to see Barbados before you explore by bus on your own, I was with my partner and it was his first time, I had been on this trip before, Eric was lovely but did not explain much of the history didn't mention the Chatel houses or the history of the forest donated by a benefactor, he knew where...
