Off roading at its best!

You cannot go to Barbados without experiencing the beauty and ruggedness of the east and north coasts and off roading through cane fields and gullies. Chances are you will also... read more

You cannot go to Barbados without experiencing the beauty and ruggedness of the east and north coasts and off roading through cane fields and gullies. Chances are you will also see some monkeys. The staff are fabulous, funny and very informative. The Bajan lunch was good (other years at plantations a bit more interesting than the current venue) but seeing... More

My wife and I recently went on an island tour and had a fantastic day. Our guide was a guy called Damian , he was a consummate professional, funny, friendly, knowledgeable and informative. All in all it was a superb day. My only criticism was the return journey, they need to make it a touch more interesting. All in all... More

The pick up was punctual, the guide was well informed and courteous and the route seemed a great choice. The lunch was not fantastic but definitely adequate. A fun way to spend a day especially with a group of friends or extended family.

This island tour visits most of the parishes on Barbados. Our guide Charles was wonderful. He provided a tremendous amount of information throughout the ride. The open sided vehicles are 4x4 pickup trucks with 10 seats 5 on each side facing inwards. Not the most luxurious but ok for the ride. I found that the seats by the tailgate allowed... More

We were picked up on time at our hotel and the first part of the day was a jeep ride around several parishes of Barbados and our guide, Damian, was great! When we got on the catamaran in the afternoon, the snorkeling and swim with the turtles (NO FISH OR TURTLES WERE SEEN) was disappointing. The captain, Thomas (apparently the... More

Booked on-line and therefore received a free t-shirt but then found a discount voucher in one of those tourist advertising stands in a bar. Worth looking out for as this is a great day. Pick-up included from hotels but we were staying privately and they picked us up from a nearby hotel. Driver was great, very informative and the scenery... More

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
