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.
This tour is a great value to see the main attractions in Barbados and to learn the history and culture of the Bajans. This tour is an all day tour which starts around 8 and ends around 3. It was well worth if but a little exhausting. We started with Harrison's Cave which was educational and got a chance to take some cool pictures. Next, we were off to the Flower Forest which was a self-guided tour provided with a map and finished up with some Bajan rum punch. I was a little disappointed I did not see any green monkeys. Our next stop was Bathsheba where we stop to view an take pictures. Narin, our guide was very informative and put in a special lunch request so we could try the local dish of cou cou and flying fish which was delicious. After lunch we visited the windmill and then St. Nicholas Abbey which was very informative and rich in history about the plantation, the production of rum and the current family that resides in the house. We later sampled some 10 year rum and purchased some rum and rum cake. They added a nice touch with complimentary engraving when you purchased rum and if you return in the future with the empty bottle you pay 1/2 price for a refill. Our final stop was a pottery/craft shop where we purchased some things. After this long day I left my sunglasses in the van and the driver was nice enough to return them and then also take my husband and I to the pharmacy and the Friday Night Fish Fry in Oistin and he recommended Pat's Place. The food and drinks were wonderful and we took the 11 bus back to the resort which only cost 1 USD and was very convenient. Thanks Viator!
This was a highlight of the tour, a peaceful setting . The tour gave a real insight into lthe history of Barbados and life on a sugar plantation . Would love to return. Great to see the cane being processed which they do on Wednesday and Thursday .
