“Decent trip if you don't want to drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Even though it rained we still had a good day. Gleine (sorry not sure if spelt correctly) did a brilliant job. If you don't fancy hiring a car and touring the island yourself then this is a good option.

“Bumpy and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

The tour guide Andre was very informative and entertaining. The safari takes u to parts of the island off road which u otherwise wudnt be able to do. Lunch was in sugar cove spa resort which was really nice and wîth a great choice of food and drinks. Andre was respectful that we had a mix of age group from 70 to 12 within our group so kept the off road at reasonable speeds (which he had sourced how much we were up for when introducing himself at the beginning)
Having previously done a tour of the island from a private hire taxi this was a great different tour and was a lot of fun. And as usual fantastic Bajan hospitality.

“A Must Do Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

"Excellent" is the best word to describe this tour. You get to see so much of the island as well as learning lots of interesting facts and information from the knowledgeable drivers - ours was Justin who was very friendly and fun but also professional. We were picked up from our hotel in the 4x4 jeep (ours was called Slyvester!) and then stopped a couple more times for other passengers. We travelled all over the island, experiencing the relative calmness of the west coast and then the more rugged east, criss-crossing through the sugar cane fields and driving through little villages. We stopped mid-morning for a refreshing glass or two of rum punch and a lovely lunch was also included. Would definitely recommend this great trip but it can be quite bumpy at times so if you suffer from a bad back etc just be careful.

The tour was great! Our guide made all the difference! We went to all the places to see around the entire island! Other tours looked bored while our group was laughing and having a good time with Dwayne ....we have great pictures and lots of fabulous memories :)

“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was a great day out with Justin our guide. Justin made us feel welcome and made sure everyone on the jeep knew each other. The tour was non-stop information and stories. Some parts were rather hair raising when traveling off road and not for anyone with neck or back problems but great fun! Lunch was at the Sugar Cane Club which was very nice. The tour finished mid afternoon and it was like saying goodbye to friends rather than complete strangers.

Highly recommended and thanks Justin.
