Barbados Harrisons Cave Tour
Sale Price: $79.00
For those interested in a shorter excursion focusing on the island's premier attraction, the Barbados Harrison's Cave Tour is exactly the right choice. Setting out from the pier area, you will travel to the middle of the island and the magnificent Harrison's Cave. The drive takes approximately 30 minutes.
At the cave, you will board electrically operated trams that will take you through the extensive system of caverns while experienced guides will give you historical information. The Barbados Harrisons cave is truly a phenomenon of nature. There are amazing galleries of stalactites hanging from the roof of the cave, and stalagmites reaching up from the ground, with emerald pools and pillars where they have joined over thousands of years. The dramatic lighting will enhance your visit. Depending on crowds, your time in the cave is approximately 35-45 minutes. There is also a 20-minute video you can watch either before or after the Barbados tour (depending on the wait to get in the cave).
After your cave tour, you will rejoin your transportation for the 30-minute drive back to the pier.

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.

We enjoyed our Harrison Cave tour. Our guide had worked at the cave for 29 years, and shared a great deal of information.

We had a major island tour along with the best driver and tour guide. Webster of Glory Tours had a phenomenal understanding of the hisory and geology of the island. The cave tours were done in little electric trains. The caves are warm. I brought a jacket because every cave tour I have been on has been quite cool. Great caves, fantastic tour guide and small group size added to the experience.

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.
