I loved seeing the Bajan's at work - we watched them for hours, it's amazing to see tradition carried on. The people were friendly, the abbey and house is beautiful. We stayed and had a drink afterward.

We did this as a cruise excursion. Well worth a visit and the grounds are beautiful. Well of the beaten path.

can you estimate the cost for 4 of us to grab a taxi to St. Nicholas from the cruise port? We will be in Barbados next week. Jon

Taxis are tough to estimate but make certain you get a firm quote before you leave. I'm guessing $100-120 USD plus a total of $90 USD entry into St Nicholas.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
