What You Can Expect
Your Just BIM tour begins at local pottery shop where you'll learn all about craft making in Barbados. Leaving the pottery shop, you'll head to Flower Forest to enjoy a relaxing walk around the beautiful tropical flowers. Keep an eye out for the playful monkeys which are often seen playing in the trees!
You'll then enjoy a scenic drive through the beautiful Bathsheba and Cattle wash with a stop for lunch. Then, you'll head over to St. Nicholas Abbey which is possibly the last remaining authentic house of the 17th Century that exists anywhere in the "New World". While most of the structures in North America were built out of timber, this residence was made of brick and limestone. The residence was built only 30 years after Barbados' settlement by the British in 1627 and is of significant historical value to the island. The plantation also has a small but very beautiful gardens with the largest and most colorful hibiscus on the island.Your next stop will be at Harrison's Cave where you'll tour the caverns bellow by tram. The stalactites and stalagmites have been growing from the floors and ceilings for many centuries! With crystal blue waters from breathtaking pools and waterfalls, Harrison's Cave is a must see when in Barbados!
Stops on the tour include:
- East Coast (lunch stop)
- Harrison's Cave
- Flower Forest
- St. Nicholas Abbey
You will also get a glimpse the Morgan Lewis windmill on this tour.
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!
