  • Staff is friendly and great tour for the Cave ride! The view was amazing! The rest of the facilities are ok. The trails were a bit too short. They mentioned the expansion of the park with swimming pool will be completed next year. That will definitely make the place more interesting!
  • We had an interesting bus driver from the ship port to Harrison's Cave. He pointed out many things along the way and made the approximately 45 minute ride enjoyable. When we arrived at the caves, a pleasant person greeted us at the bus and divided us into groups, taking us inside the Reception Center. At that time, we had to use our phones to scan a QR code and fill out a waiver. This took some time. We were then escort into another room to wait for the rest of the people on our bus to finish the waivers, and then we watched a movie about the formation of Barbados. After the movie, our tour guide, Carol, let us to our tram. Rico, our tram driver, and Carol took us through the caves. Along the way we made several stops and Carol explained the formation of the caves, how they were discovered, and how they became a tourist attraction. It is very beautiful inside the caves and we enjoyed our time there. Rico is a very good driver and Carol he's a pleasant and interesting guide. I'm not sure we would return the next time we are in Barbados, but we're glad we went.
