This was very interesting and beautiful to see. They take you on an open tram ride the tour guide was informative . You do get dripped on by water but it's clean water , and even though you are in a cave it doesn't smell musty . I enjoyed it

“Check out the darkness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We did this tour as part of a cruise ship excursion. 4x4ride to get to the cave was about 45 min.The island has put a lot of time and effort into this attraction .After the visitor's center you watch a 10 min film about how the caves came to be and then board a tram they drives you through these enormous caverns. At one point they turn off the lights and let you check out just how really dark it is in there. Very cool! The lady that explained the caves was very informative! Price was good, Time well spent. You do get a little wet, not a big deal. Once again we did this with a ship tour and they escorted us everywhere. Do this it's great. I believe the total time was about 45 min.

“Don't miss the gullies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Well presented and managed - you are visiting underground caves so expect to have water dripping on you. Great formations - well lit and well explained.
Everyone on our train headed back to the elevators after the tram ride - in our opinion big mistake. Walk around the visitors centre to the left and walk up through the gully. This rain forest is how Barbados was before 90% of it was cleared for sugar cane. Amazing plants and flowers plus mongooses and green monkeys - super mini Eco-trip

“Very interesting visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

This was a really interesting visit and well organised. You first visit the information centre which gives the history of when it was discovered and the work that has been done to make it accessible. The tour guide was a lovely lady and very informative. The ride on the electric trams is very safe and the total tour inside the caves lasts for about an hour. The ride down to the caves from the car park is via a glass sided elevator/lift so for anyone who is scared, like me, of heights, stay to the back of the elevator. It does, however, give fabulous views of the area. Would have liked to have spent more time exploring around the area but we were on a taxi tour with another couple from our hotel so had to get away to our next stop.

“Nice visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

After taking the lift down, it was rather confusing because it was not clear where to go and there was none to ask. There was no food in the bar, apart from chips, even though it was advertised. You get a little bit wet, so protect your camera. Since you are in the tram, it is not always possible to take pics from the things you'd like a pic. And all that just for an average cave with a high entrance fee.

Luckily a security guard directed my view to the monkeys in a tree. There is a walking path through the gully which is worth taking!
