Both guides have been very committed to the three of us kayak beginners so that we can see at least one turtle, starfish and fish in addition to the shipwrecks and the story. The meeting point is in the middle of the beach. The waterproof equipment for the mobile phone and of course the transparent kayaks were provided so that photos can be taken. The chance of staying dry myself is slim, in any case I didn't succeed. We were able to laugh a lot a few times and I felt in good hands with the guides. At the end there was also a good rum punch. Absolutely to suggest!

Scott was an excellent driver and guide, my Mum had never been to Barbados before and loved it so much she wants to go back, I have been many times and saw things that I hadn’t seen before, we especially enjoyed lunch at the Flower Cave, as a travel agent I will be recommending Scott to my clients

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.

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.
