We arrived on RC's Jewel of the Seas on July 4, 2013. I found Carson on tripadvisor about a month prior after trying to book through a different tour company who didn't want to return my phone calls/emails. Carson was always prompt at returning my emails and was able to set up a perfect tour for our large group of 9 adults and 8 kids. His van was a bit tight for all of us, but we fit. He told us he is working on getting a larger van/bus for tours of our size.
He was right where he said he would be to meet us, was very professional and made sure that we had stops on our tour that were perfect for both the kids and the adults . Our group wanted to see Harrison's Cave (a really neat drive through tram), Bathsheba (extremely wild beach w/huge rocks), swimming w/turtles, the Garrison (we didn't get to this) and beach time. He added in a stop for the kids (pleasant surprise!!!) at The Monkey Bar, a man who keeps monkeys as pets and let all our kids feed a baby green monkey (see pics). Even through some members of our group were running a bit late in meeting him, he was able to quickly rebook our Harrison Cave tour and re-jigger our tour schedule to accommodate us. He was also mindful of our budget and was able to get us good rates on swimming with the turtles, although we would have probably had a better experience with the turtle guys if we had used his preferred contact. He told me in advance that one particular part of the island had better turtle viewing (and possibly a cheaper price), some of our group wanted to use a contact who was closer to our ship (and probably used to higher prices)...... and that guy was a bit of a jerk....although he did buy the guys a beer after they tipped him well...his equipment (snorkel/mask) was sub-par. This doesn't reflect on Carson though, who was an absolute gem and designed the tour as we wanted! Some also wanted extra beach time and to go back early, and he worked all that in for us.
I would call him again for another tour in a heartbeat, he was awesome!!!
He is a wealth of knowledge on Barbados and taught some of us who had been there before some new things. I would definitely recommend him for both a smaller tour and for a larger tour.
