There are many cave sites round the world and some are bigger and more spectacular but this is a worthwhile morning out. It is also very well organised with a tram system which does a 40 minute tour. It is also a good visit to combine with the animal sanctuary in Barbados, making a good day out seeing a bit... More

Nice cave and best of all, they have an elevator down to the caves and a tram through the cave. It is a wet cave, so the tram is a must to be safe from slipping.

We went from the Waves Hotel (Holetown) via taxi (about 30mins) and got the bus back from outside the visitor centre - easy. We did the Tram Tour (hour tour of caves starting with a video about the island and the caves and then driving through the caves). You can do more adventurous caving tours or walking tours but only... More

Harrison Cave is breathtaking and spectacular. The tram ride and experienced tour guide transports you back in time to the days of the cave's formation. Huge stalactite and stalagmite formations is a wondrous sight of one of nature's grand creations. It is a must see while in Barbados.

This place is beautiful, Mother nature is great. Never seen anything like this. The guides were great. Inside the cave is worth seeing. A must see in Barbados.

It was quite an experience to walk into the cave and see the natural formations that Mother Nature sculpted. The guides were great, with a lot of information. It was really neat when all the lights were out and it was "pitch black". It is a must do in Barbados.

We really enjoyed the tour and found every aspect interesting. It was much bigger and better than it was when we visited 20 years ago. We planned to have lunch before but the cafe was close so we walked to a local shack up the road that was cheap but not great.

A must see. The lady who was operating the tour to start of with was slightly rude, but we looked past this. Tour ended up being great, with amazing views inside the cave, and the history behind it all.
