It’s a great attraction, and glad I went. But make sure not ships are in or you’re in for a long wait. It’s so nice and the views are fantastic in the caves, the water is so clear the rocks sparkle when the light is on them. It takes a good hour or so to do it but you don’t... More

I've been to Harrison's Cave three times before this visit. They've made some significant upgrades to the property around the cave and it appears they've dug deeper into to the cave giving you a better experience for the guided tour. They also have a Jr. Explorer's cave adventure you can sign up your kids up for - wish I knew... More

Interesting place, guides and tram ride. The place is a Gem in the middle of the Island. Worthy visiting.

Harrison Caves our was quite interesting. The tour consists of a brief video introduction and a tram ride of about 40 minutes to view the stalactites and stalagmites in the cave. The tour stops twice for guests to take photos for the formations and water pools.

But if you have been to other caves before such as manmonth caves in Kentucky, then this might seem just average. The Harrison system of caves is of decent size, but the rooms appear to be made up of relatively newer formations of pure white calcite, of which lacks all of the multicolors, pointy shapes, sculptured animals, nome statues, and...

Last couple of time we have been to Barbados this has been closed because it has been renovated and developed. It is brilliant. You arrive at a new complex that is bright and well structured. You move to the gully where the cave is via a fantastic glass lift that descends over a 100 feet. At the lower level you... More

The tour of the cave was a one in a lifetime event. It was so beautiful. The guide was informative and the cave is definitely a place of wonder. It was well worth the trip.

We had a great time. I marked down because we had been before, two years ago, and loved the tram ride and so wanted to try the cave walk. We also wanted information on the educational programme such as the bat thing and the young explorer. We do not have a phone so emailed as the website did not hold... More

We were a little sceptical as we'd heard mixed reviews, but it was really great. We loved the journey there seeing the oldest town on the island. It was incredibly efficient an well organised & they've spent a lot of money and consideration organising the excursion. We enjoyed it & would recommend it.
