Traveler Tips

It rained on the day of our trip but Amhad still made it worthwhile.
I highly recommend this tour, it was so comfortable and dry compared to past island tours in the back of a truck with a bunch of other folks.
Highly recommend this tour, as we were able to design the tour to suit ourselves.

A very interesting, enjoyable day
Jane_E, Sep 2022
Had a very enjoyable day with our driver who gave us an interesting and informative overview of Barbados including a couple that aren’t normally on the tourist itinerary I think! He even stopped at his local pharmacy so we could buy paracetamol which was much appreciated. Although we enjoyed Harrison’s caves, it was quite expensive and we may have given it a miss had we known the cost. We really enjoyed seeing the contrasting scenery in different parts of the Island and our drivers local knowledge.

We had a great day with Ahmed. We visited Hunte's Gardens, which was so beautiful and tranquil, well worth a visit and also went to Harrisons Caves, really interesting and a nice break from the sun. Our teenagers 16 and 18 loved both, and it was lovely to see the real Barbados not just the beaches. The East coast was in stark contrast to the West, so lovely thst we got to experience this too. Ahmed was so knowledgeable, and a perfect guide, we learned alot about the history of the island and also much about its current affairs. The your was well worth every dollar. I would strongly reccomend.
Memorable, affordable and customised private island tour
Udo_H, Aug 2022
Whole island tour. Were picked up at hotel at 10:30and planned our trip with driver to visit Holetown and Saint Nicholas Abbey (+ quick stop at Carlisle Bay). Very interactive and informative driver. On time and friendly service. Definitely worth $ US 250 (without ticket entries, meals)
Barbados in a Day

The guide was very informative and accommodating and seemed to know everyone on the island., We particularly loved visiting Bathsheba Beach Animal Flower Cave, lunch and St. John Parish Church.

We enjoyed a tour and day beyond our expectations!!!
Michael_A, Jul 2022
We had an amazing day from start to finish. We were immersed in the culture, history and beauty of the island. Ahmad was outstanding and could not have accommodated us more. He guided us and was very open to including our ideas and suggestions. He took great pictures too!!! We highly recommend this tour to everyone and wish you a beautiful day in Barbados.
Angela_H, Jun 2022
Ahmed was amazing!! He is an absolute wrslth of knowledge. A true historian. Today was a full 360 tour of island. 10 out of 10 highly recommend.
Suji_M, May 2022
Ahmed tour guide was AWESOME. He was courteous, knowledgeable and accommodating. We did a lot of sightseeing in 7 hrs plus. He told us upfront where there wld b tkts to enter and how much so we cld decide if we wanted it. Loved Hunt garden and Animal flower cave. Lunch ( self paid but directed by driver)at local restaurant was delish. Glad we did it!

Great way to spend our last day
Jon_C, Apr 2022
Going on a private island tour with Amhad was a great way to spend the 6-7hrs between disembarking our cruise ship and going to the airport. Amhad knew lots of places to go and was also happy to include places we'd already heard of. We never felt rushed at any of the stops. Amhad timed the airport drop off perfectly so clearly has experience of how long people will spend at different places. He was full of history and knowledge and was able to answer all the questions we threw at him. I'd highly recommend the tour, especially as a way to pass time when waiting for flights or for hotel check in to open. It was a much better option than having to find somewhere for our suitcases all day or having to spend the day at the airport.
Wonderful day learning about and seeing Barbados
Meredith_T, Apr 2022
We had a great day touring Barbados. Our driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and proud of his country. He was very helpful when he learned our luggage didn’t arrive and helped direct us to the right stores.
Personalized and Amazing Tour
Vickie_L, Apr 2022
Based on what people have told me, I have been wanting to see Barbados for a long time. We were on a cruise and therefore only had one day. So, I booked this private tour hoping to see a lot of Barbados. As it turned out, my husband had gotten seasick on a catamaran the day before and wasn't up to the tour. We decided I should go anyway. I felt totally comfortable and it turned out to be a perfect day. Ahmed was very good at arranging the day to cover my entire wish list and added some scenic locations I had not come across when I was looking online. His knowledge of Barbados astounded me. It seemed everywhere we went people were happy to see him. Ahmed was enjoyable to talk to and it was a privilege to meet him. Barbados is a beautiful island. The more I heard about it and the more I saw, the more I liked it. I seriously hope to return for a longer stay. Ahmed gives an exceptional tour and I highly recommend him.
Barbados Island Private Tour...
Patrick_C, Apr 2022
I already submitted a detailed review, but because we were a party of 8, when I called Viator asking for help due to the fact we were a party of 8, and the web site stated that the maximum party size was 4, two tours were booked. Amhad and the tour was perfect for what we wanted to learn and to see on Barbados. The only issue was with Viator. When Amhad met us for the tour, he asked why we booked two tours with 4 in each group instead of booking 1 tour for 8. He said it would have been easy to accommodate us; he would have just arranged a large van. This would have been perfect, and I was very frustrated at Viator for not taking care of this for us, instead booking two tours of 8. I rode with Amhad for the first part, then switched cars for the rest of the tour. The second driver was not a tour guide. He chatted with us, but was more of a driver than a tour guide. People in the second car did not get the amount of information that Amhad was giving to the people in the first car. It is too bad that we were not all together in 1 vehicle for the tour. This was an unfortunately failure in communication, and maybe the web site should have mentioned that larger groups can be accommodated by special request.

A Great Way to See and Learn About Barbados
Patrick_C, Apr 2022
Amhad was fantastic. I very much appreciated his insights to life on Barbados as we toured the island. I very much appreciated the fact that he called my cell number before we left America, and told me to book Harrison's Cave in advance. The tour accomplished exactly what we wanted, to see and learn about Barbados. The only irritating issue was with Viator and the information on the web site. I want to point this out in case anyone else is in my situation in the future. The web site mentioned the maximum party size of 4. We were a party of 8. Rather than book the tour twice online, I called Viator and asked for their assistance booking a party of 8 for this private tour. They did what I was going to do, book 2 tours for 4 people. When Amhad met us at the hotel, he asked why we did not book a tour for 8, and he would have arranged 1 large van so we could all be together. That is what I wanted from the get-go, but did not receive. After our pickup of 6 people, we went to my brother's hotel to get his wife and him. I moved from Amhad's car to the second car, I believe his name was Kindrick. Kindrick was more of a driver than an educated tour guide. He was not the same caliber as Amhad, and I felt we missed out on information being with Kindrick compared to if we were all with Amhad. Something happened very bizarre with Kindrick. We went off the tour a bit to stop at a hotel to pick up luggage that he was going to deliver to the airport after our for someone else not even in our group. That was very bizarre and the 4th person in Kindrick's vehicle had to share his seat with this luggage. He also totally left us to get a drink or some ice cream when we were out of the Bridgetown bridge. I do not want these comments to reflect negatively on Amhad. This was poor information on the Viator web site, and a beak down in communications when I was on the phone with the Viator representative. I did not even think of asking Amhad about getting 1 vehicle when he called me before the trip because I thought it had to be a max of 4 on the tour based on my conversation with the Viator representative. I will say that I wish the second driver was more knowledgeable and more of a tour guide than just a driver, more like Amhad.
