The caves are not too spectacular but there are some very good points about the visit. One is that the tour is extremely accessible with an elevator ride down to the tram level. There is a tram throughout the length of the tour so minimal walking is required. The narrative on the tour was clear and informative. The short film... More

Enjoyed the experience but not as impressive as other caverns I have visited. Riding in the tram was nice.

This is expensive but fun. Rather than just taking the tram, we booked a guided hike through the caves, which essentially consisted of crawling through mud in the dark - the teenagers loved it. You are given a helmet with light, gloves and knee/elbow protectors - and you need them. There are some tights spaces but it's not difficult in... More

Anyone doing trips in Barbados should do Harrison's Cave. Very informative and great pictures to be taken. There is a tour guide that drives you around the caves explaining all about the stalagmites and stalactites.

I found the Harrison's Caves very interesting and I'm glad we took the time to visit them. Some of the natural rock formations and pools where amazing, however, straight after we went to the Animal Flower Caves and that blew us away.

What I heard about the cave and what I saw on the 20th of August 2015 was a marvelous site which I cannot forget, The hospitality was great by the tour guides, the pre-tour briefing was great, the tram ride was professional and the interior of the cave was fantastic. I definitely will recommend Harrison Cave as a " must... More

In short, this attraction costs B$40ph and I'm not convinced we got our money's worth. The caves are interesting with 3 or 4 areas of significant stalagmite / tite development, and there is an electric train ride that takes you through the cave system (prob half a mile) via a concrete road. It's ok and the commentary is adequate in... More

An amazing tour! Shame the glass lifts were not work but instead we go to see the beautiful scenery on the work down to the caves! The tram tour was very good and the person giving the tour was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting.

Very nice tour guides who lead us through. also it was a good deal because even on the trams we would be allowed to stop occasionally and take... More

An exciting must see for adults and kids, a journey into an underground cave, where you see first hand the beauty of nature at work and how precious natural water is and the wonders it creates!
