I enjoyed the tour of the cave, but I wasn't blown away. The cave is still very active with lots of dripping water, new flowstone formations, and waterfalls. Everything is roughly the same color, browns and whites. If you are looking for variety of formations or colorful crystaline formations you will be disappointed. The facilities around the cave are in... More

We first went to Barbados in 1981 and visited Harrison's Cave when it was literally just that, a cave. We hired a mini-moke this year and by chance came across Harrison's Cave. Thought we would go and see what it's like. It's an interesting experience and obviously a lot of money has been spent on developing the area into the... More

We went by taxi, the driver was brilliant and gave his own little tour on the way. The caves were empty. Took the last tour 3.45 #tip. Even though they craved a ruddy great road down. I thought it was a great piece of a natural wonder which you would never have seen other wise! When we left the same... More

This excursion is a must see. The attraction has been significantly upgraded and the cave train transportation is an effortless way to see the fantastic caves. The gardens and catering are extremely good . An attraction not to be missed

You get to visit a beautiful underground cave in a tram/car. You go about 1km so it's a long tour (40 mins). Well worth a visit!

We took a bus from Bridgetown to Harrison's Caves, purchased our tickets, took the elevator down to the caves and joined a 1hr tour straight away. There is a short information video to watch before boarding our "train" to take us on a tour of the caves, there are 4 people to a bench seat. There is a guide who... More

We were traveling with our college-aged children and everyone loved this excursion. We booked thru Carnival and took a small van with 12 of us to the cave. It was not at all what I expected; it was even better! We got there and they gave us all lockers and suited us up with helmets and pads. Our guides were... More

MAKE A RESERVATION! We got there, bought our tickets with the understanding it would be 45 minute wait. After an hour and a half and no indication our tour number was close we decided to ask for or a refund. Then problem is first of all a complete lack of organization and that all of the cruise ship tours get... More

We had heard so much about the caves and everything we read said to reserve. We tried via email to reserve for the tram ride The email reply was that reservations were not necessary. My wife arrived and purchased tickets for tour 16 and were told we had a 40 minute wait by the lady at the ticket counter. DO... More
