Get a feel of the British influence of Barbados...once called Little England. Explore the island and see some of the best highlights - Hunte's Gardens, St. Nicholas Abbey, the rugged eastern shore, rum tasting and more.

Your day of exploring begins just outside your Barbados cruise ship terminal where the friendly, English speaking guides are waiting for you. They will get you checked in and aboard the transportation. As you move away from the terminal, your guide will give you a rundown of the day's plan. They will also be giving you informative facts about the island, its history and background along the route.

The island of Barbados was once called Little England and was under British rule for numerous years. Although Barbados gained its independence in 1966, there are many remnants of the British influence throughout the island.

Your first stop will be at Hunte's Gardens. These gardens are full of tropical colored flowers and meandering pathways that you can stroll through and take in the sights of the beautiful flowers. The entrance fee of $15.00 USD is included.

The rocky, rugged shoreline of the eastern shores will offer you some spectacular views with crashing waves and giant carved out rock formations in the surf. You will pass through Cattlewash and Bathsheba beach areas.

St. Nicholas Abbey is next on the list. Built in 1658, this former residence is one of the last authentic houses of the 17th century that still exists in the New World. It is still a phenomenal sight with some incredible views. You will receive a guided tour of the house, gardens and grounds along with a historical video.

The Abbey also has another interesting produces some of the finest quality rums in the world. From sugar cane harvesting, to steam milling, to bottling - you will have a guided tour of their rum production (the steam mill only operates on limited days). Then you will enjoy a rum tasting! Bottles of your favorite Abbey rum and other producers may be purchased on site.The entrance fee of $18.00 USD is included.

Your journey will end as the guide drops you off at your Barbados cruise terminal where you started. There is a minimum of 2 guests needed for this excursion.

I just love love love gardening and everything that has to do with flora. This was paradise to me! Hunte's Gardens is literally paradise. We actually got the opportunity to meet Anthony who has done an amazing job caring for this garden. It's just a relaxing experience and the aroma is just ...ahhh...I could be here all day but had to go to the next part of the tour that included stops at Bathseba which was also nice (and secluded.) Ryan (our guide) let us know that there is a surf tournament hosted would of been awesome to experience...Rum tasting was good too. It has a different flavor to the rum in the states, somewhat sweeter, which I liked. After the tour was over, we got dropped off at the terminal where we had time to shop before our next destination!
