Eco Adventures led me on a full day tour of some of the more ecologically interesting areas in Barbados. Victor Cooke, my guide for the day was deeply knowledgeable about the Island's ecology, history, geography and culture. The day was packed full of very interesting information and insights. I highly recommend Eco Adventures.

Victor and his wife, Melva, guided our group of 12 people (HF Holidays) on walks all around Barbados over 8 days. Victor's knowledge of the history, culture, geography, geology, people and traditions of Barbados is encyclopedic. He imparts information using a story-telling style that is most appealing and, where appropriate, most entertaining. His deep-belly laugh is contagious. He adjusted his pace to match that of our group and always waited for those at the rear to catch up before sharing his jewels of information. Melva was a delight, providing behind scenes support to Victor and responding to our desire to taste local fruits and dishes by arranging for samples to be made available to us and sharing with us her recipe for the famous Bajan Pie. Thank you Victor and Melva, you made our excellent holiday superb!.

We, four of us, plus a Ramblers group, met Victor and covered a very interesting walk in an area we could not have found ourselves. Victor is both extremely friendly and informative and we thoroughly enjoyed the trek. To be honest, it wasn't quite what we were expecting as we had thought it would have been somewhat longer and incorporate some of the wonderfully wooded areas of Speightstown. But still very enjoyable

Thank you for taking time to share your experience on the Arbib Heritage & Nature Trail. As your group opted to join the trail's E grade version (time & terrain wise) specifically requested by the Ramblers group, the wooded areas which involve boulder scrambling through the Whim Gully would have been intentionally excluded. We invite your group to visit our web site and FB Page for hike trails that are even more appealing such as the Bathsheba Trails and Turners Hall Wood Trails. Looking forward to sharing more of Barbados with you on a customized private tour. Thank you also for choosing Barbados as your vacation destination.

While on a business trip, some of my more adventurous colleagues arranged for a wonderful hike to from Barclay's Park(bathroom facilities available) to Chalky Mount with private guide, Victor and graciously invited me to join them. This was my fourth trip to Barbados for business and never have I had such a memorable and breathtaking experience(due to both the incredibly beautiful vistas and the physicality required at just a few points along the hike). Victor's welcoming way and deep knowledge and respect of our surroundings only enhanced the experience, which included green monkey spotting, a walk through a Bajan Village, a stop at Highland Pottery, Inc. and identification of plant and wildlife encountered along the way. If you are a nature lover in relatively good physical condition and have packed footwear with a better grip than running sneakers and bottled water, I highly recommend a day tour with Victor!

Thank you for deciding to join your more adventurous friends, for you had a positively outstanding experience of some of Barbados' natural environment and country life with a healthy dose of fresh air. Thank you for taking the time to share your tour experience and we look forward to sharing more of our island with you again.

If you are like me and enjoy exploring the outdoors on foot, learning about flora, fauna, and the natural breathtaking views that can't be achieved from a car, then this is the tour for you!

Victor is such a welcoming, knowledgable and friendly guide who is extremely considerate of his guests and caters to what they would like to see.

Our private group of varying physical levels all participated in the 5 mile hike along the east coast of the island, experiencing the pounding surf along the beach, 360º views from a top of the sleeping giant, a boutique pottery store, green monkey spotting, a typical Bajan village as well as a wealth of information regarding the plant and animal life on our route.

If you were to pick one land adventure while visiting the island and enjoy walking / hiking then I strongly encourage you to book with Eco Adventures.

Thank you for your excellent review; the tents I would say then "look small from the outside, but roomy on the inside." The Eco Adventures team look forward to sharing more of Barbados with you and your group. The moon did put on a spectacular show after our walk, though the stars were brilliant.

Saturday 28th September 2013 was my 9th hike with Victor Cooke for this year. I hiked with him on many occasions last year, even a moonlight hike. The hike is always an interesting history lesson for me and I get to see so many parts of Barbados that I have only read about. He has a wealth of information on the places, flora, fauna and species of animals. The hike is always well organised. Barbados has a rich history, rugged beautiful coastlines, great walking trails and a fantastic tour guide in Victor Cooke. I am looking forward to hike number 10 at the end of October. Come and experience Barbados away from the sea and sand.

Our hike with Eco Adventures was fantastic! Victor Cooke is a knowledgeable tour guide, he's fun, engaging, and brings an educational and challenging twist to the experience. We intend to plan more tours with them at least twice a year. Keep up the good work!

This tour was exactly what were were looking for and requested! Victor's communication from beginning to end was spot on. We were requesting a hike off the beaten path, had all the information we wanted, and more. the scenery was gorgeous, wonderful local lunch near the ocean, history and culture galore. Victor was comfortable to be with, felt very safe in his presence and really a perfect guide and gentlemen. His vast knowledge seemed unending, from ecology to history and everything else in between. Also very sensitive not to make this trip about him, but our needs and requests, giving just enough information to inquire more, if we desired. Absolutely recommend, and would definitely do again!

We, as a group of 18 Ramblers were enthralled by Victor and his explanation of the history of Bridgetown.
Victor is obviously very knowledgeable,has a very positive attitude and delivers a lot of information in a clear and interesting way.Throughout the tour Victor answered any questions as they arose.
If you are going to visit Bridgetown, do not hesitate, arrange a tour with Victor. We highly recommend his tour!!
