We booked this tour based on the reviews from family members and friends. The tour itself was lovely, the drivers were very friendly and fun. It was 6 hours of on and off road touring ths island. The guides try to incorporate fun and learning of the heritage of the country. One thing to make sure to pack is sun... More

We were on a shore excursion with our cruise. Our driver/guide was Charles (Mark, for negative comments, lol!). The shore excursion was titled/described as 4x4 Monkey Adventure. We definitely saw lots of monkeys, up close and personal! But we had to ask about the 4x4 description and if we hadn't, we would not have gone off-road into four-wheel drive! This... More

We booked this tour based on the recommendation of the hospitality director at the hotel. It was 51/2 hours of on and off road touring the Central, Eastern and North-east parts of the Island. Our tour guide really loved his home and really enhanced the experience for us. I noticed other guides from the company not as engaged with the... More

All day tour of island with driver commentating. He was knowledgable and had a good sense of humour. We had 5 stops in various parts of island and included lunch at sugar cane club which was Buffett style. Soft drinks and punch supplied with crisps on tour. Children age 18 and 15 throughly enjoyed this.

We always book a safari on all our holidays, we did again in Barbados and I'm glad we did :) We booked online prior to arriving, communications with the office was good. Our Jeep was on time to pick us up direct from the hotel, we were fortunate enough to be a party of 8 so there was plenty of... More

The jaunts across the cane fields are similar to a roller coaster - you are belted in and get bounced around. The guides are excellent -- or ours (Eric or "English") was, anyway. You see something of the whole island except the south coast and the views are spectacular. The lunch at the Sugar Cane Club was very good and... More

Hospitality at its best was received from Ms Janice Hassig on Thursday, April 2, 2015 as I awaited the start of my Safari tour from Lower Estate.Ms Hassig made me feel welcomed with her warm smile. She lent me the Nation News paper to read along as I waited the arrival of my former school colleagues Jeanette Bell, Thelma Blackman... More

I think this tour is a bit overpriced for what it is! Basically the trip is a tour of the island, sometimes going offroad for a bumpy bone jarring ride. We've seen other tourists hiring a taxi for the day and doing the tour arriving at the same spots! They even charged my toddler (less than 3yrs) £50 for the... More

we wanted to see the island and this is the best way to cover most of it, plus places you may not get to in your own car. Ian our driver was very informative and fun at same time, his humor and banter made the day, plus the rum punch was good too! We went in a Toyota land cruiser... More

Probably the best way to see the island of Barbados. Yes there are air conditioned coaches available but for a fun packed, informative day out go with these guys and have a blast - literally as you sit in the back of an off roader open sided but with a roof to shade you from the sun. The off road... More
