Ted makes your tour extra special with his extensive knowledge of Barbados/history, and his extremely flavorful sense of humor! He is a riot and keeps you laughing while showing you parts of Barbados you didn't know about. The tour has a few stops to see, buy, eat -- whatever! Delicious authentic Barbados lunch and a couple of doses of rum... More

Ted's not just a tour, he's a trip. What a character. Enjoy the corny jokes along with the absolutely gorgeous landscape and island overview. It seems Ted knows about 1000 people along the route and I guess he should as he's been giving these tours for quite a while! Relax and enjoy -- how often will you have a barefoot... More

So glad I found Ted's Tour on TripAdvisor!! When I saw the five stars, I emailed Ted's wife right away to book it. And the reviews are all true! Ted is amazingly personable, funny and LOVES his life. He is a tall lean rum-drinking surfer dude born and raised in Barbados (the only white guy I met there born and... More

Me and my girlfriend found out about teds tours by chance. We were talking to some vendors down by the beach and we're talking about how my girlfriend wanted to take a bus tour. He proceeded to tell us about his mate ted who ran a tour bus and rang him there and then for us. After my girlfriend finished... More

I've done this tour 6 times now. You won't find a better tour guide than Ted. The stop at Cherry Tree Hill is the highlight for me. Once you've done this tour, you can spend the rest of your holiday on the beach, because you'll have been around the whole island!

a very good introduction to the island. Ted gives you a variety of assets on the island. You get historical, environmental, retail, obscure and other types of information. Yes, there are silly jokes and antidotes. I enjoyed it and I would suggest it to anyone who is new to the island.

This is must. Well worth the money. I did the day trip round the island, half the bus were dressed as pirates and have done the tour for many years and I can see why. If you can,do the trip early in your stay. Ted has a wealth of knowledge to impart as well as a wit and repartee to... More
