We had no idea that our first president, George Washington, visited Barbados and his purpose of going there. The guide was very respectful and informative. I highly recommend doing the "tunnel" portion of the tour as well. It's another interesting and surprising part of Barbados.
Visited the house and tunnels today and had an enjoyable couple of hours. Being a Brit I knew little about George Washington but that doesn't matter as there is a short film followed by a really interesting self guided tour of the house. There is...More
We all enjoyed touring the George Washington House and stepping back in time to get a sense of daily life for President George Washington, during his time in Barbados. Fortunately it hadn't rained too much and we were able to tour the tunnels during our...More
Very enjoyable tour for those interested in historical things and obviously of the Island. Short film to tell you why Washington was there and then a tour round the house. Nice museum on top floor and then we did the tunnels. You are not in...More
This is an interesting place to visit. The staff are so lovely, friendly and welcoming. The on-site cafe alone is also lovely. The underground tunnels are worth seeing and our guide was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed this visit.
Anyone interested in the history of the island will love this. Beautifully restored with some interesting artifacts. Must check out the privy!! Downstairs is an authentic recreation of the house at the time Washington visited. Upstairs is a small, but interesting (air conditioned) museum. You...More

We visited this house as we were keen to explore George Washington's connections to Barbados (coming as we do from Washington in the UK, the original home of the Washington family). The staff were very welcoming and the pricing explained clearly - cheap by the...More
Taxi. All of the taxis are in the form of people carriers, i.e. approx. 12 seaters. We would suggest “reggae” taxis as we christened them. Just stand by the side of the road and they will see you. Basically what the locals... More
Taxi. All of the taxis are in the form of people carriers, i.e. approx. 12 seaters. We would suggest “reggae” taxis as we christened them. Just stand by the side of the road and they will see you. Basically what the locals use . . . And you might be crammed in so a nice way to meet Bajans. It will drop you at the top of the road for the House. Cost B$2 each.
