Barbados was the last stop for our cruise. We decided to do go on the excursion to see the caves and they were breathtaking. We took the tram tour, but there is a tour that can be taken by foot. Prior to the tram tour we watched a short video which was very informative. Our tour guide was very professional... More

Very age friendly tour and the sights breathtaking. No walking required. However I understand there is a three hour, walking,crawling and wading tour of additional caves. If I were younger I'd definitely consider doing that.

Fun tram ride through the caves. A guide tells you about the formations and the crystal clear pools. Beautiful shapes sometimes look like a bird or people. Fun!

There was an interesting exhibtion room about the caves and a very good short film about how the caves were formed and their role in water filtration for the island. An electric tram took us all the way down - stopping to point out specific formations and features. We then stopped in the huge cavern - which had numerous beautiful... More

Harrison's Cave is beautiful and the best way to experience this Eco Adventure is 'Indiana Jones' style, where you are oufitted with a lighted helmet, elbow and knee pads and ropes/ladders to get up / get down / get in / get out. It is quite an adventure and so much fun... we were walking in streams one minute, crawling... More

My littluns (8 and 10) specifically asked to go back to the caves again this year. They loved the tram ride, the pre-tour info film and the part of the tour where they turn off all the lights for a short while. It's a pleasant hour or so, the caves are an experience - even as returning visitors. One to... More

Harrison Cave visitor centre is great for all ! We so enjoyed our tram ride through part of the cave. At least half an hour in the cave which we saw about a mile of. Amazing inside and amazing photos we took! The tour guide on your tram tells you lots too. Setting of the visitor centre is lovely too.... More

I visit Barbados twice a year and have done for the past five years. I have visited the caves at 6/7 times and always ensure that I take guests and advise others not to miss this fantastically well organised attraction. As others have noted, it is not the cheapest attraction but I can also confirm to you is by no... More
