Shore Excursion Group provided a great experience for our group. Our driver arrived on time with a nice and clean vechile. Importantly, he drove very well. He was very personalable and waited with us until we had been checked in for the Harrison Cave Tour. The tour was awesome. The cave was big and beautiful. The guides we great. It was a great experience. The driver returned as we finished the tour and drove us back to the ship. Take this tour - you will be glad you did! PS this is the 4th tour I have taken with Shore Excursion Group, all were great experiences.

For the $ value-- it was a "10" and then some! It was one of the most exciting excursions I have been on in years!!!!!!!!!!! How it was done with the trolley cars was very inventive as well as the unbelievable scenery. The employee monologue given was very informative to explain mother nature and what you were looking at. This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience a cave such as this.

I went with my two adult children. The departure at the port was clearly marked and easy to find. It was a 25 minute trip to the caves with interesting scenery on the way over. An elevator took us down to the tram. Our tram guide was informative with a sense of humour. The tour lasted 30 minutes. We were impressed by the enormity of the caves and the nooks and crannies throughout, each with different views and stories.
The tour was great!

This was such a well organized tour! Barbados has such smooth and nice roadways (which you can appreciate when you visit other countries with severe potholes and bumps). Our guide, Ronaldo, was very knowledgeable. The van to the caves was clean and air conditioned. The group in our van was less than 12 people. The entire Harrison Cave facility was incredibly beautiful and clean - not to mention very clean bathrooms. Once at the cave entrance, we rode a trolley down into the caves. This was one of the most beautiful caves we have entered. Our tour guide on the trolley was funny, informative and entertaining. He even took pictures for people to get that perfect shot. After the tour, we stopped at their bar for a rum drink, enjoyed our delicious drink and walked around to view the facility. We looked around at the shopping booths before we headed to our van to return. Would definitely recommend!

Barbados Harrison Cave Tour
February 25, 2019
Pick up for this tour, outside of the cruise terminal was seamless. The twelve passenger bus was comfortable and the driver had live speaker audibles. The half hour drive to the cave let you see the interior of the island outside of the capital. The tour itself, on a shuttle type vehicle was excellent, heading down ninety or so metres into the cave interior. Safety helmets were provided and warnings of putting your arms out were given as the passage ways were not much wider than the shuttle vehicle. The cave was fantastic with its protruding calcium forms and underground streams; absolutely pitch dark when the lights were off. Warning re water dripping from the ceiling was also given, so you did come out with some water spots on your clothes. Being deep in the cave required a light jacket or warm shirt as it did get cool. A trip well worth the cost.

Our family of 4 greatly enjoyed this tour. The meeting instructions were excellent and we really enjoyed hearing about Bajan culture, history etc. on our way to and from the caves. The cave was interesting and we liked getting out and walking around a couple of times. We saw lots of birds and live stock on the drive and moneys before entering the caves. Loading onto the trolley at the caves was a free for all so our family was disappointed that were not able to sit together. It would be nice if the cave tour guide had managed the loading process.

Overall the tour was excellent with a great guide, especially a short stop at the top of a hill looking at the ocean. This was a perfect opportunity to take some pictures and relax before the caves (I had a rum punch, for even more relxation). The caves were amazing and easily seen from the trams. Be cautious, the caves are damp and dripping. Also, sit in the middle of the tram for best views, front and back you are just a bit out of best views. It is crowded, so be prepared for some wait times. I would do this tour again!

I have never been to a cave that wasn't damp and musty smelling and claustrophobic. This cave was fantastic! It was so warm and spacious and being in the tram was a nice way to see everything. we got out at certain spots and took pictures and felt the warm soft water flowing along the path. Some of the stalagmites, etc were so beautiful and looked like carvings of people. One wall was all white and gorgeous and the waterfall inside was so pretty and we took lots of pictures. The tour guide even took all the pictures for us so we could be in the picture together. Very informative and I would recommend this trip to all. The guides were so pleasant and knowledgeable. I can't say enough about this trip it was so worthwhile. After you got to look in the shops and kiosks and then board your van to go back to the ship. Even the tour buses were excellent. Very comfy and air conditioned and very modern.

The tour began in the pavillion in the gorge before entering the cave. The tour guide (who referred to himself as "Rastaman") was very fun and charismatic, which made the tour very amusing and enjoyable. The formations were fascinating and are a huge contrast from what the island has to offer. A definite must-see for people interested in how the unique formation of Barbados compares to that of other islands in the Caribbean!

Harrisons Cave is not spectacular; however, it is different. Several years ago the trip was modernized to use motorized vehicles to drive tourists through the cave to see the various formations. The explanations were quite clear and the only problem was that there were not enough seats in the vehicles to accommodate all the passengers that were admitted. Four people had to be squeezed in, with some passengers having to sit on others' laps.

If you've been to Barbados and want to see something different than the beaches, try Harrison Cave. Interesting learning about how the island was formed and seeing the depths of the cave was fun. It will appeal to kids of all ages. Our van driver was very nice. He dropped us off in town since we wanted to do some shopping. He gave us recommendations for shops and a lunch spot that was definitely local. Fun day.

It is an hour tour and I felt was well worth it. I would recommend this to anyone

One of the best excursions we have taken, this cave was (and I rarely ,if ever, use the term) awesome. My only negative comment is that my wife and I sat in the second tram car and the tram driver only stopped at specific sites for the first tram car to take pictures, etc. Then he would just continue on without giving the second car the same opportunities. Would do this excursion again, but would make sure that we sat in the first car.

The Harrison Cave tour was very unique and beautiful. The cave were a true wonder and I was able to get some very good picture because of the hop on hop off style of the tour. It was also very informative. There were underground waterfalls. I may never see anything like that again. The only negative was how rushed we felt. The tour was not rushed but our driver repeatedly emphasized not getting left and we start our tour a half hour early. Four stars overall.
