  • I visited the house and museum during the day. There is more historical connection between Barbados and the USA than any of us non-Barbadians imagine! Then I was informed that there were night tours, ...  read more »
  • went on this trip and walked around George Washingtons house and the tunnels this was very enjoyable with 2 very good tour guides and good value for money 
  • Oh well, what do you say. It is a beautiful house with a beautiful garden and an underground corridor. George Washington stayed here by chance a month or two as company of his older brother Lawrence who had tb. And Barbados at the time was known as a spa. It is only recently refurbished, after a historian had discovered that the young George had been here. And if you write history. Fun for a short visit. Combine well with the nearby Historical museum of Barbados. Beautiful flowers everywhere!

  • Whether you're a history buff or are just staying nearby, visiting the George Washington House is a great way to take a walk through history by both walking through the grounds and viewing the 10-minute video at the start of the tour. The house is very lovely and you can spend 30 minutes taking a quick spin or spend at least an hour reading all of the placards describing every room and part of Barbados history as it relates to George Washington. Bonus: As of December 2014, you can tour a small part of the underground tunnels part of the property, for a small additional fee. Totally worth it!
