Maximize your time in Barbados with a jam-packed, full-day itinerary that includes historic landmarks, UNESCO-listed monuments, and tropical beaches. Stroll along Bathsheba beach; visit the Morgan Lewis Windmill, St John's Church, and the Garrison Historic Area; enjoy a delicious Caribbean-style lunch, and cruise out to swim with wild sea turtles in Carlisle Bay. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
After being picked up from your Barbados hotel or cruise ship port, set out to explore the island’s East Coast. After a quick stop to take in the views from Cherry Tree Hill, visit the historic Morgan Lewis Windmill, the island’s last remaining sugar mill, where you can watch a sugar grinding demonstration and sample a glass of sweet sugar cane juice. Continue along the coast to Bathsheba beach and admire spectacular views across the Caribbean as you watch the surfers taking to the waves. Next, stop at St John's Church, a 17th-century Gothic style church located in a stunning cliff-top setting, affording impressive views along the coast. Head towards the West Coast, passing through St George’s Parish on the way to Bridgetown. Then, spend time exploring the Garrison Historic Area, part of the Bridgetown UNESCO World Heritage site, and learn more about the island’s colonial history and independence. For lunch (included), tuck into delicious Caribbean cuisine at Copacabana Barbados restaurant, located right on the beachfront. After some free time to relax and enjoy the beach, set out on a scenic boat cruise around Carlisle bay. While on-board, keep a look out for sea turtles and other marine life, then prepare for a thrilling wildlife encounter. After a safety briefing and instruction on how to swim around the turtles, dive into the ocean to swim and enjoy a closer look at the wild sea turtles. Swimming will be accompanied by a guide at all times, and there will be no contact or interaction with the sea turtles to ensure that their natural environment is not disturbed. After returning to shore, your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel. Please note: Washrooms, and freshwater showers are provided at Copacabana Barbados – please bring your swimsuit and beach towels.

This was a great tour--just my wife...

This was a great tour--just my wife and our guide, Calvin. While on the pricey side, Calvin is with you for everything you want to see or do. Has a lot of knowledge of the island is personable and worth the price. Highly recommended.
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!
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!
Totally enjoyed our visit to Barbados! The island was very neat, clean and well kept and the locals were very friendly and helpful. Our only disappointment was a sudden rain storm that required us to cancel the glass bottom boat trip and snorkeling and Viator will be refunding a portion of our purchase price for that. Even without the boat and snorkeling I would recommend this tour and especially a visit to the island of Barbados!
