We had booked a private tour of Barbados and scheduled Carson to be our driver after reading the excellent reviews from TA. The reservation was done through email and all confirmed. Unfortunately, the night before we arrived in Barbados, one of our group was sick. When we arrived in Barbados, I went into the cruise terminal and called Carson stating we had to cancel. I want to tell you that he was so gracious about the last minute cancellation. I offered to pay him for the tour, but he said “no” and that he understood things happen.

His graciousness shows a class operation and for this reason alone I would recommend Caron if you want a private tour while on Barbados.

We booked a private tour with Carson for our family of four based on the Trip Advisor ratings, and he lived up to the great reviews! His advance communication was prompt and thorough, and he was waiting for us at the designated time and place.

The cost was very reasonable considering (a) he spent the whole day with and (b) the amount of ground we covered. He also happily accommodated three more guests on short notice (friends we met on the cruise) for an additional fee that was also reasonable.

We covered the entire island, saw all the sights, and even had 1-1/2 hours on the incredible beaches on the West side of the island. I had requested to take the Mount Gay Rum Tour, and he gladly accommodated. But if we had to do it over again, I would have spent that hour seeing more of the island, The tour is worth doing if you have more than one day on Barbados, but if you have limited time use it to see more of the island.

I also want to note that our cruise stop on Barbados was on Christmas Eve, a day that many on Barbados were spending with family, but Carson made us feel like part of his family on his beautiful island. Carson will customize your tour to do anything you suggest, but you can trust if you leave it up to him you will be very pleased. Thank you Carson for a memorable day! We highly recommend that you book Carson for your tour of Barbados!

I called Mr. Carson last minute because my plans for the day fell through. He was willing to take me around for the day. He was very nice and knowledgeable of the island and it's history. We agreed that he would take me to hunts gardens and the wildlife reserve. We did so much more! Along the way he stopped at many sites, where he allowed me to take pictures and roam around. It was a lovely day, I'm thankful he was able to take me on the tour.

After attempting to squeeze into a packed tour van with too many other patrons, our group decided to have our private excursion. We were connected with Carson and so began what became the best tour of our entire trip (a 7 day cruise with 5 ports). Carson was very, very knowledgeable and made us all feel at home with him.

Thank you Carson! Should I ever return to Barbados, I will surely look you up.
