  • While a must see for those who haven't seen caves before, a bit of a let down. I've been to name better caves. That said, the ease of access and the amenities were very nice.
  • Absolutely fantastic! A very unique way to tour a cave system. You can learn a lot about the history of the island and it's geography here. A very cool place to see and experience!
  • Its breathtaking. Locals refer to it as one of the eight wonders of the world. There are beautiful crystal stalactites from the ceilings and wonderful stalagmites from the floors. Dazzling waterfalls and cold clear shimmering pools of water. An exotic tram ride into the center of the earth hundreds of feet down one you won't want to miss. Breathtakingly beautiful. You would want to come here again and again. Locals and Tourist welcome. Satisfaction guaranteed.
  • Beautiful place to visit to learn about how Barbados was created. The tour was about 45 minutes and they take you 160 feet underground. There are several stops to get off the train for photos. It's nice and cool and we'll ventilated as well.
  • Wow truly awesome tour. I highly recommend this adventure if ever in Barbados!!
