Multiple stops on this tour gave us the chance to get a good feel for the island. Our tour guide was great at pointing out all the sights from the bus. Enjoyed our stops at Mushroom Rock, the Windmill, St. John's Church. Interesting to hear about George Washington's house in Bathsheba and the chattel houses.

The Tour Guide covered the history of Barbados and we saw many beautiful homes. The highlight was Bathsheba beach. I felt sorry for the Tour Guide as she kept apologizing for the poor condition of the roads in Barbados.

The tour guide and the tour itself were fantastic. The tour guides used taxi vans instead of buses so the tour was much more intimate than what you would experience with cruise line tours. As an amputee, I was able to participate in more than half of the stops. I stayed in the van a couple of times because of the uneven ground in a couple of places. The driver tour guide assisted me in getting in and out of the van. She knew the island and well. I would definitely recommend the tour for the amputee with a prosthesis.
