What You Can Expect
Following pickup at your Barbados hotel, board your vehicle for this comprehensive tour, specifically created to give first-time visitors an overview of the island's highlights.
Drive up the east coast to Cherry Tree Hill, the hightest point on the island at 850 feet above sea level. Once covered with cherry trees, this hillside now hosts mahogany trees. Continue to Morgan Lews Windmill, the last operating sugar windmill on the island. Having ceased operation in 1947, the windmill was fully restored in 1999 and is now one of only two working sugar windmills worldwide.

Then, continue to St George parish, past the Gun Hill Signal station and the Great White Lion. Arrive at the Garrison historic area, where the independent flag of Barbados was flown for the first time in 1966.
In the afternoon, spend time at Carlisle Bay. Lounge on the provided beach chair beneath an umbrella with a complimentary drink. Board a boat to swim and snorkel with green sea turtles and other marine life off the coast of the island.

wonderful trip combining both island tour a spot of sunbathing on Carlisle bay which is just gorgeous then off to swim with turtles. fab!!
This was our third of three full day tours with viator a and glory tours. Quamy our tour guide, who we had already met from the prior day's tour, managed to further inform us rather than just repeat information he had shared from the previous day. Loved the food provided, Enojyed the clean and well air conditioned bus. Randy, our snorkel and boat guide, personally helped my mother with physical disabilities, fully enjoy her snorkelling of the shipwreck by swimming alongside her. I would strongly recommend this tour company! We aboslutely loved Chris, Quamy and Randy!
It was an AMAZING tour. I had such a great time! My expectations were exceeded and I recommend it for anyone visiting the island .

Tour was good,we were the only 2 in the taxi. One disappointment was the boat portion.It turned out to be a small outboard instead of a sail boat as pictured in the ad,as this one beside the review portion of this e-mail. Also ,we were th only ones on boat tour so it turned out ok. Everyone was very friendly.
First I want to say Jamal was awesome. My 83 year old mother in law had broke her collar bone just a few days before our cruise. Jamal went above and beyond what is required of a tour guide. It took both him and myself to get her off and on the van. He not only volunteered to help, but he did with a very caring and tender touch with my mother in law. On top of this, he also help assist in getting on off my wife's elderly aunt, and sister. The whole while maintaing his cheerful disposition! Did I forget, he also was great at giving us the history and explaining the sights of Barbados! The high light of the trip for my wife and I was swimming with the turtles! Awesome! They swam up to and all around us!
Well the issue was with this trip we didn't get parts of this. Did some driving around and saw the Islands scenery, had lunch , which they forgot to order before we arrived which had always been done. Then we had the amazing lunch, and it was amazing. Then thanks to some well OTHER customers missed out on some time as they didn't bring swim suites and left to go buy some. When we got on the boat we did the same turtle swim as we had done with the Best of Barbados package. We did NOT spent 2 hrs on a ....."From the north, you'll head back down the west coast to Holetown where you'll board a 2-hour boat cruise. Swim with the friendly sea turtles, sail down the west coast and snorkel off of one of the colorful reefs." As advertised. We did nothing but swim with the turtles. We did have a great time as Randy the captain on the boat was amazing. Too bad we had to spend MORE money and didn't get what we were hoping for. Would have loved to see the island from the water.
