A guided Island Tour is excellent value for money as well as informative, and varies from scenic, fun-filled, historic tours to exciting safari tours. If seeing the island from a different angle is more your thing, then try one of our sea tours, air tours or underwater tours.
If you rent a car, here are a few things to remember. The roads meander, are sometimes illogical and often unmarked. So don't get upset or frustrated if you get lost-everybody does, even Bajans! If you make a wrong turn, consider it part of the adventure of touring Barbados. You might want to pick up any of the several visitors' guides which include maps.
Bajans are generally very helpful in directing you to your destination. They will do their best to try to steer you the right way, even if the directions seem a bit skewed. But not to worry, you will get there eventually.
