Had an amazing visit to Barbados and went on a wonderful walk through the gully. Sherry, our tour guide, was very personable and knew a lot about the gully. She led us on our walk through Welchman Hall Gully. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Barbados. The view from the gully is absolutely stunning... More

I would recommend that you visit this wonderful natural gully before venturing to the stunning garden paradise in another gully at nearby Huntes Gardens to compare. We visited on a Friday morning for a guided tour and to see the green monkeys being fed. The wealth of knowledge of our guide, Debbie, was amazing. She knows all the vegetation, trees,... More

I enjoyed this site more than Hunte's Garden, because it had a more natural feel. Oh, did I mention the Green Monkeys? We watched them eat and interact with each other. Make sure you go when they are being fed. And the chickens were entertaining.

A wonderful, quiet, peaceful stroll in this beautiful gully. Steeped in history, it really does help the visitor to imagine what Barbados was like until the sugar canes engulfed the island. A winding path takes the visitor through the shadows of huge palms and bamboos. There are three incredible bamboos which take your breath away. Don't forget to look down... More

It was a nice walk, some plants were really exotic and unknown to me. You get to see the monkeys jumping between trees and coming to the ground for food. It started to rain during the visit, but the density of the trees kept us dry. I recommend to visit the Gully first leaving the stairs on the right of... More

Fantastic location offering a partial view of the island as it may have looked before the tropical forest covering the entire island was destroyed for sugar production. The winding path takes you through a range of different environments. Monkeys were around in the trees and were fun to watch. A fabulous view fronm the look out point near the entrance... More

A wonderful peaceful walk along a long path with beautiful plantation both sides and a very good leaflet guide to explain and educate you about the indigenous and foreign plants and trees of Barbados. Towards the end of the path before we turned and headed back, we looked up in the trees to see the monkeys grooming and playing. At... More
