$60 bajan dollars per adult! Too expensive! Enjoyed the tour. Perfect timing. Not very organised when we arrived. We're told to wait for our tram 5 tour. Waited ages. Set off on foot and it had already started!! Amazing inside the cave though. It's a must see in Barbados!

My husband and I visited here on 2nd July. We did the tram tour which lasted an hour plus a very informative video presentation on how Barbados was formed (the only non-volcanic Caribbean island). Our guide "rasta man" was so much fun and knowledgeable. I'm not keen on dark enclosed spaces but glad I visited. My husband loved it here... More

The tour was amazing and very informative. Our tour guide, Peter, besides being very knowledgeable also brought his unique and funny style to the tour which made the cave facts much easier to remember.

This is a well organized and informative tour. You start by watching a video of the history of the cave (including information about the island itself). You then have a driver and a guide take you to the depths of the cave. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and passionate about the cave and its formations. This attraction is... More

Well worth the visit if you haven't seen it yet. Good history on the area and very informative. We went a 2nd time as someone in our group wanted to visit otherwise wouldn't go back as nothing new there

Visited this place as part of a shore excursion on a cruise. The caves are very beautiful and atmospheric. Our tour guide was very engaging. The tour didn't drag either.

The visit started with a short interesting film, highlighting the formation of Barbados in the visitors centre. Following this was a tour of the caves in a small train led by a very entertaining and informative guide and driver. The visit lasted for about 45 minutes and we were able to get off the train to walk around and take... More

You enter in the road level. There is a small gift shop. You then take glass elevators down tot the cave. This provides a nice view of the gardens below as you descend. You view a short film about the cave before you board a tram to take you on your tour
