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.
This tour was informative, giving us a good feel of the island in about 5 or so hours. There was a variety of stops which included a forested area with great views, awesome shoreline & St John Anglican Church which is impressive having been built in the 1600s. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and also able to answer all of our questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour on a small mini bus. We got some great scenic views and hand plenty of time at each of the stops to get out and walk around. The driver helped us get some great pictures. We saw a lot of the Island and learned a great deal about the history of the island.

This starts with the downtown area then to a scenic overlook of the eastern shore then a windmilll , the eastern beaches (very nice),an old church with a good view and more island sights and history including George Washingtons house and back to the boat . This island is quite prosperous and the tour was well worth the money.

Our guide answered every question we had, and gave us a indepth look at the island. He was also the safest and best driver I have had. He made it interesting and fun as we toured around the inland and beached of Barbados.
