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

We arrived early in the morning and jumped on the tram and enjoyed this awesome cave . How excited to here the history of Harrisons Cave . We enjoyed the stops along the way and took some GROOVY pictures . The souvenir shop was kind of pricey . Walked around for about 20 and headed back to our guide .... 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

We spent a couple of hours here. The tram ride that takes you through the caves is enjoyable and the guide was very informative.

We have visited many caves and this is the first one where the cave was cut through to accomadate a vehical/people mover to take people through the cave. What a shame to take away the natural beauty.

There are a few tours offered at Harrison's Cave: I categorize them as "The Disney Tour" where you ride on a tram or walk on nicely groomed paths to look at the pretty stalagmites; and the "Indiana Jones" where you have a helmet with light and need rope to get up / get down / get in / get out....

Harrison's Cave is a must see while you are in Barbados. We took a guided tram ride but you can also walk or take a longer and more informative Eco-Tour. We will take the Eco-Tour next time. For this trip the hour long tram ride was perfect. It is a beautiful cave and it is interesting to see how so... More

A good attraction to see some spectacular caves. Would have much preferred to walk through the caves rather than sit on a tram. It's a shame as I think the attraction has been over developed with the trams, concrete floors and lighting. All this somewhat ruins the natural beauty. I've been to much smaller 'natural' cave tours in the UK... More

My Partner and myself decided to see the caves in a different way rather than jumping on a tram, an experience perfect for those who prefer more of an adventure, who don't mind getting wet and muddy. We had a great instructor who took us around (Ryan) who taught us a lot about Harrison's Cave. This tour cost around $200... More
