Have been to Barbados before but never knew of the caves . Was on a cruise so took a taxi tour from the ships terminal which we negotiated outside on our own. The fee was $30 each for approx three and half hours. Driver took us on a tour around the government area and then to the hospital for a great look out point. Then a few other points of interest before heading to the caves. To enter the caves it's $31 per person. You travel down to the start by an elevator and then see a short film on the history of the caves then it's off to a tour. The vehicle you are seated in takes you through the whole tour. If you can get front seats or edge seats for better photo chances. Great guides ride with you to explain all aspects of the caves. Be prepared to get dripped on! Nice cool trip on a hot day and great for all ages.

“Overpriced distraction”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

If you've ever been in a cavern anywhere else in the world then skip this and stick to the beach. It's nothing new; far and expensive to get to; and ridiculously over-priced to get in. It's a crowded tram ride that could easily just be walked. We were not impressed.

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Complete waste of time. You get on a tram to go through the cave, you can't touch anything but they can build a 12 foot tunnel going through the caves to drive a tram through. Too crowded, and waited forever to even get in. Rather pathetic example of caves. Guess it's good for a family, young kids or older people but for young adults who are looking for something to do there's much better options.

“Very large wet caverns”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

These caverns are definitely a major attraction on Barbados. They are quite enormous and it is a wet cave, with still developing stalactites and stalagmites. (Indeed it was so wet from rains the previous night that the cave was closed the next morning, postponing our scheduled tour.) A couple of streams and several waterfalls (one 40 feet high) are within. There is a big parking area next to extensive entrance buildings and an exhibits room (some of the push-button displays were non-functional). You reach a lower, outdoor level via elevator. There are shops and a small café at that level, plus the entrance to the trams. To accommodate these large carts (about 40 people at once), enormous tunnels have been carved through the caverns. No doubt, some of the caverns were destroyed by this construction project, but they are so extensive, there remains much to see. For anyone who has been to some more pristine caverns, perhaps on a walkway or in a small boat, the beauty in Harrison’s Cave is rather patchy and restricted in location, so these are not must-see caverns. But visiting Harrison’s Cave, with an advance reservation, is surely something to do in Barbados.
