Underwhelming walk with an expensive entry fee. Nice view to the coast at the start of the walk. No monkeys to be seen, so probably need to go at feeding time...

The park itself is very good, well maintain and yes we saw monkeys but...the staff was not really helpful. We went on the time of the "money feeding" and as soon as we arrived there was a man with a VERY loud leaf blower, we...More

We saw so many interesting sights in the collapsed cave. To top it off, the monkeys were being fed. What a treat! I highly recommend this tour!

Apart from the monkey feeding times (which we missed) there is not a lot here. A downhill walk past various trees & plants & I thought it was a little expensive for what was on display & then a walk back up hill.

Even on a bright day this is rather a gloomy place. I certainly wouldn't want to be there as it was getting dark. There are some huge trees but not much else - just a few monkeys.

We saw a bunch of monkeys jumping from tree to tree and that's exactly what we wanted, to see them in their habitat, undisturbed by men. It was very special!

HI Dogadventures Tripadvisor is a great place to give your opinion about places, it gives a bit of an insight for the next visitor. However, it is not the right forum to accuse staff of attempted theft. If you felt you were being deceived, the...More

local bus to Bathsheba and Welchman Hall Gully (11 Replies)
Hi everyone. I have been trying to do my research on TA and Cruise Citic, and just have a couple of specific questions. My husband and I feel comfortable taking public transportation in most places and like the local feel of the ride ...and also saving money! We were considering doing a Glory Tour half day excursion to Harrison Cave, Bathsheba, and Welchman Hall Gully. However, I am not really sure if I want to spend $85USD pp. I would love to see that part of the island (we were there...More

I would highly recommend that you take a private taxi tour!!!!! It would be a lot cheaper than the tour. Try contacting Sanjay Kini, he is a taxi driver who has many very reviews on TA. His email is barbadosfun@gmail.com, # 246-262-1296. Have fun!!! You'll fall in love with Barbados!!!

We are enjoying Barbados now. Does the number 27 bus go directly from Accra to Holetown? What about from Accra to Welchman Hall Gully? We haven't ventured on the bus yet but want to. Hoping not to transfer in Bridgetown. Thanks!

Wait for the Speightstown bus, this misses out Bridgetown.

A catamaran cruise to swim with the endangered turtles!!! - recommend Calabaza (max 12 passengers)- but there are other cats that take more people and are more of a "party" boat Maybe a visit to George Washington's House? a day at the races? St Nicholas Abbey? - what are your interests?
