Friendly guide, beautiful cave

The children loved the cave and rated it second only to the beach! The guide was very friendly and entertaining. I suggest the tram ride!

It is worth a visit but we have seen better caves elsewhere especially within Europe. The visit entails a ride through the caves whilst we would have preferred a guided walk. There are some interesting features but at 30US dollars per person, it does not really offer value for money.

Nice to spend a couple of hours out of the sun. Have been to better caves but well worth a trip out. Well organized, little vehicle takes you round the caves. Other things to do whilst there we didn't take that option as we ran out of time but if your a family there a couple of walks to do.

The beauty and wonder of this cave cannot be aptly described by words. Its a must do for anyone visiting Barbados. I learn something new with each visit and look forward to returning in the future. It's ease of access adds to the charm of this attraction

The cave itself is interesting and the formations are impressive, however for the entry price of USD 30, I expect a better level of organisation. As others have said, there is no real structure to the ticket entry times, with large cruise groups trumping the independent visitors. We were given a tour group number and were told we would need...

Driving through underground caves on rubber tyred trams hardly sets the pulse racing (well not mine anyway). But this attraction is so well organised, so visually stunning and so well described by very informative and charming guides that it was one of the "tourist" highlights of our holiday in Barbados. Well worth a visit.

Despite the terrible website, this place is amazing. Tours in a buggy with good commentary. Absolutely stunning. Not sure why the restaurant is closed on Sunday's as it was pretty busy. Also good value for money. Definitely a place to visit.

This tour is a must see if you are in Barbados. It has fantastic views and amazing formations. You won't be disappointed. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly and the landscape around the caves makes for beautiful photography.

We chose to drive ourselves rather than take take an organised tour as it was cheaper. Was very quiet when we arrived and next tour about to start. We took the tram tour with our guide Hyacinth who was very informative and had a few tales to tell. We did get a little wet (dripping from above) but this should... More

This was the first attraction on our Los Barbados Island Day Tour, must say I was amazed by the cave, better than expected with amazing formations. Would recommend them to anyone visiting Barbados.
