What people are saying about Bridgetown

It was a great tour spanning the whole island. Steve was our guide and he really has a great singing voice. It was not boring for a single second. All the way through, he talked as if he were a commentator in a cricket match. The lunch and the view in that restaurant was marvelous. Also, he gave us some home made banana cakes which was really good. Overall, a highly recommended tour.

We had a fabulous island tour of Barbados with our guide ‘The Rooster’ Pick up on time. Entertaining and informative. Great lunch stop. Rum punch and banana bread provided by our guide. A fabulous day out which I would recommend to everyone.

If you come to Barbados, you have to go there. This is a crazy place. Hundreds of people drinking, smoking, standing in a queue and eating fishes. It's an amazing experience.

Very informative talk and tour around Bridgetown. Guide really knew his stuff Could have stood in the shade occasionally rather than standing in bright sunshine.

Fantastic tour with The Rooster Man. We were entertained all day and learnt so much about the Island. We would highly recommend this tour and company.
