Everything about this trip was lovely...from the driver who was very informative to the delicious lunch (best "pie" of my holiday) Due to road closure we visited Andromeda Gardens which was delightful. Loved Harrison's Caves and St. Nicholas Abbey, both of which would bring me back to Barbados for a longer visit to both. It was really nice to see the east coast and get a feel for the island. I took this tour on my first day and the air conditioned transport helped to acclimatise me for the remainder of my holiday.
Full of very rich History. Fun learning for all.
St Nicholas Abbey was really good. Simon made us welcome and gave us an interesting insight into his families involvement with the Abbey. Well worth a trip. Barbados was shown to us by Quarmy who was a really good guide. Very interesting
Christopher was a very knowledgeable driver who made it an excellent trip. Personally I would have preferred less time at the Earthworks Pottery and more time at St Nicholas Abbey,as we didn't have enough time to see it all . .Other wise it was an excellent day out.
We took this full day tour on our second day in Barbados and while there was some overlap between our first tour "Best of Barbados" and "just BIM" we were again very impressed. Quamy, our tour guide, arrived at our hotel promtly and provided us with many details of the island in terms of culture, history and day to day life. Lunch again was great. We had many fantastic photo opportunities on the tour. My mother particularly enjoyed the tour of St.Nicholas Abbey and I very much enjoyed the stop at Earthworks pottery. Quamy was very personable and made a point of helping me understand directions and getting aroudn the island as he knew that two days later I was going to be driving around the island in a rental car. Thanks Quamy!
For this day we had Lisa as our guide. She was awesome. We started off in the Harrison Caves, wow how amazing are those....FYI sit in the front or middle not in the back as you will miss some amazing picture possibilities. We then had lunch while seeing some more scenery. Again the lunch was amazing. I do have to say I love my Flying fish. Saw some amazing flower forests. Will go again when the flowers are in full bloom. Then off to the Abby, my husband not so keen on this, but who knew an Abby was not really an Abby but rather a historical distillery. We got to see more of Barbados' amazing history with this tour. And Lisa was always there and happy to answer all of our questions .
