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...

I loved our jeep safari! We booked a half day around the north half of the island including Bathsheba and the wild Atlantic coast. It included a fair amount of off roading which was good fun. I really enjoyed driving through the countryside and seeing the real Barbados and it's stunning scenery. It was just about the right amount of... More

In a word - hilarious! That being said it's only if you get Ian to be your guide. This born and bred Bajan tour guide made this trip a one of a kind experience. With his slow island drawl and stand up comedian style view on the island as well as his passengers, by far one of the better tour... More

We booked for the adventure safari and it was really good. There were ten of us in total and we all got on well with each other. Our driver was Charles and he was very good. We had fun on the off roading part of the tour, very knowledgable and was a very good guide. Took us to places that... More

Our trip was complimentary through Almond beach. Justin our guide was a great laugh and very well informed. We had a fun drive (on and off road) and we learnt a lot about the Island. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Our hotel was running complimentary Island Safari tours and we're so glad we booked to do it. Justin, our driver and tour guide was brilliant and told us so much about the island. A very funny guy! We saw so much of the east coast and also off road trails through the mid north of the island that the average... More

We have visited Barbados many times and yet this tour blew our mind. Glyn (pronounced Gline) was very knowledgeable, charismatic and entertaining. We learnt so many new facts and saw new places. His mission was to get us addicted to the island of Barbados and we must say he succeeded.

We weren't sure what to expect with this tour but we booked it as it was highly recommended by our hotel. We are so glad we went as it was a great day and it was really fun travelling around the island in a jeep. Our tour guide was charismatic and knowledgeable and made sure the drinks flowed all day...
